This set of photos is from our visit to the Discoveryland, ‘Star Tours’ portion of Disneyland Paris, and at the time ‘Star Wars’ was the hottest topic in film.
David was almost 10 years old at the time of our visit. so of course all of the ‘Star Wars’ memorabilia was the highlight of his visit.
Discoveryland was a change of pace from the well known and loved classic Disney themes that are woven throughout the rest of Disneyland Paris.
I have to admit that I enjoyed this part of our Disneyland Paris experience as well, and here’s C-3PO welcoming all the visitors.
This Droid workshop was very interesting to see, with all the bits, pieces, parts and tools used to keep all the Droids in good working condition.
Here R2-D2 rides above a battle damaged fighter having just returned from a mission attacking the Death Star.
David and I stand in front of an exhibit showing a futuristic space vehicle in this Discoveryland display, which had all kinds of interesting things to look at and enjoy.
Planet Hollywood offered a convenient place for a meal and also fit very nicely into the space themed portion of Discoveryland.
Here’s Annette’s Diner, a throwback to the ’50s and possibly the most fun aspect of our visit in many ways.
Pluto was the namesake for Discoveryland’s space focus, and here he surrounds David with a big hug.
In Annette’s Diner the staff would break into a theatrical song and dance every few minutes, which accounted for the very enjoyable aspect of having a milk shake, cheeseburger and fries here.
David stands in front of a classic Chevrolet Corvette as part of the entire retro ’50s theme surrounding Annette’s Diner in Discoveryland.
Twilight was setting in over the park as we walked around the lake and back to our hotel, at the end of a full day visiting Disneyland Paris.
Here’s the front of our hotel, which made for a nice nighttime setting – the next day we would drive back to our home in Bridge Street Hamlet, Suffolk, England via the Chunnel – having had an excellent vacation to both Bavaria and Disneyland, Paris!
