Dinner at Chez Remy, Disney Land Paris

Having been fully indoctrinated into the world of Disney Christmas with the incredible fireworks show, we were wide eyed and excited to see more!

We popped back to the hotel for warm baths, cups of tea and a change of clothes.

Disney Land may be known as “the happiest place on earth” but it’s also the coldest place on earth. If you’re planning a trip, wrap up warm!

We piled on coats and scarves. Suddenly a whole troop of green soldiers burst into the room, strapped camo parachutes on us and shoved us out of the window…

p

p-2

We floated down into Disney Studios.

The place had been closed for the night, so this really felt like fulfilling a childhood dream!

p-3

The pavements glittered with the afternoon’s rain but the Disney team were on hand to mop it all up…

p-4

We strolled through the studios and found ourselves in the streets of Paris.

p-5

Complete with lanterns, cobbles, fountains, trees and of course, Gustau’s.

p-6

p-7

^ The design detailing is just phenomenal. The carvings are rats, the water spouts are champagne bottles!

As you walk through the doors of Chez Remy, something rather special happens. You are shrunk to the size of a rat. As you walk further in, this becomes clear.

Just look at the size of a dinner plate compared to you!

p-8

A cockatil umbrella becomes a perfectly chic parasol, a jam jar lid a suitable table and champagne stoppers make fabulous chairs.

p-11

p-12

p-13

p-14

p-15

We met Emile.

A true gourmand, he’s a man after my own heart!

p-17

I really didn’t have high expectations of the food, so was utterly delighted when we were served a beautiful fillet of fish in a beurre blanc sauce, with ratatouille of course!

p-18

It’s worth mentioning that unless you’re into fast food, Disney is not an easy place to eat.

This was a fabulous dinner, but take snacks to get you through the rest of your time there. A pocket full of peanuts is a very good idea.

The chef came out from the kitchen to huge excitement… There was even a line of people waiting for autographs, I’m not sure Gordon Ramsey even get’s that response from a meal!

p-19

p-20

p-21

After supper we raced through the deserted streets of Paris.

Mum has always been significantly cooler than me.

p-23

We ducked into the ratatouille ride.

p-24

Where you dance across the rooftops of Paris.

p-25

p-26

p-27

Before climbing into your very own Ratmobile (I don’t think they’re called this, but they should be).

p-28

You don a pair of very fetching 3D glasses and whizz off.

Remy meets you and you dive through the roof into the restaurant kitchen below. Scoot through the place into the fridge.

p-29

You’re blasted with cold air so you really feel like you’re in a fridge!

p-30

At one point you get sprayed by a diner’s bottle of champagne and the ride sprays you with water, then you dive under the oven where you’re roasted under hot flames!

It truly is a multi-sensory experience.

p-31

We absolutely loved it.

And went round three times, before feeling like we might lose our supper.

So we skipped off to see what Toyland had to offer.

p-33

Joined some old blogging friends from Spain for a ride that mum would rather skip.

p-36

You’re dragged up to waaaay above the park, before being dropped like a toy soldier.

Mum was far more amused by the props!

p-39

p-40

p-41

Having exhausted the rides, we strolled home. Stopping for a few snaps along the way.

p-42

Cashmere camel coat // Cashmere scarf // Cashmere jumper

(I said you had to wrap up warm!)

Skinny black jeans // Jimmy Choo biker boots

p-44

p-45

Just as we were getting back to the hotel we saw a family celebrating a birthday.

They were clapping and singing as the cake emerged and Micky was there with them dancing and hugging the birthday girl.

p-46

p-47

It’s really wonderful to see how much joy that little mouse still brings to the world and how much Disney means to people.

  • The whimsy of Disney never really wears off, does it? Lovely that you could visit during the holiday season! When I’m super fancy one day and building a custom estate, I’m totally putting in some of those enchanted broom sculptures!

  • I’ll be going to Paris for the first time in February and have been debating whether or not to visit Disney there. Your post makes it look like so much fun! πŸ™‚

  • Disney is such a lovely and … HAPPY place! I’d love to go visit one day. The food and attractions look amazing !

  • saradujour

    I love the film Ratatouille, but had no idea there was a whole theme park built about it, how lovely! I especially love how you’re “shrunk” in the restaurant – that’s just brilliant.

    Thanks for sharing!

  • Megan

    It’s Disneyland Paris, not Disney Land Paris. They’ve, for some reason, asked you to blog about your experiences there. The least you could do is your due diligence and spell the name of the company/attraction correctly. Your blogging lately is getting really sloppy – run this shit through spell check or have someone proof it for your first before hitting “post.”

  • Betty

    There are SO MANY restaurants at Disney without fast food. Do your research – for once!

  • So adorable!!! … I may or may not be looking up flights to Disney now…

  • Laura

    Aww looks so fun!

    And I totally get what you mean about the lack of choice of cuisine except fast food – looks like you did alright though!

  • I went to Disneyland this weekend and had a slightly less pleasant experience than you, I’ve posted about it if you’re interested at lucysonner.blogspot.co.uk. This post is making me very envious!

    Looks amazing! I think I will always be a small kid at heart and what better way to indulge it! x

  • I haven’t been to Disneyland Paris for years but it looks like it’s so different! I am obsessed with Disney so this post was perfect for me! Gotta admit that Mickey always makes me smile every time I see him. I even cried when he opened the gates to the Magic Kingdom last time I went. I just love Disney ok! πŸ˜›

  • What a cute post! Looks like you had such a fun time. I love your Mum’s poses – she’s brilliant!

  • Such beautiful pictures, you and your mam are so stunning! The food also looks amazing! I’ve never been to Disney Land Paris, I’ve been to Disney World Florida, you’re right, unless you like fast food it’s hard to find something decent. There’s nothing in between the fine dining and burgers. I also learnt they don’t cater well at all for vegetarians… however it is still so magical and the detail is incredible! xo

  • Makes me so happy to see what a magical place Disneyland is. I’ve yet to visit myself but then again, you’re never too old to go!

  • This is all so utterly magical! I’ve been to a couple of Disney parks around the world, but I have to say I’ve never eaten a ‘proper’ meal in one of the parks. It looks amazing just how much effort has gone in, esspecially when in general, Disney just bombards you with fast food and snacks!

  • Hi Rosie. I’ve been reading your blog for so long and I think the way you seem so approachable and down to earth despite such a fantastic life is amazing. I enjoy all the same things as you – travelling, eating, partying (probably too much) etc however I suffer from really bad anxiety and I work in the mental health industry. I decided to start a blog to reach out to others in my position. I only started yesterday but it would be great if you could have a little nosey – playingonmymind.wordpress.com

    Loved reading this post and looking through your photos – they’re all so magical! It must have been amazing to walk around disney at night with all the lights ahhh πŸ™‚ like you say, a childhood dream. The fish looks really good – I would have thought the food wouldn’t be that great, as most places with themes seem to attract people through that alone. Emma x
