It was our last stop before leaving the parks and we wanted a treat. We deserved one, I felt. They had fudge, meringue biscuits, chocolate chip cookies, and marshmallows. Kira got a chocolate chip cookie and I got a Mickey shaped meringue biscuit with a chocolate coating.
We walked out of the shop and stood on Main Street, watching the fireworks while we ate. My meringue had very little flavour, even less flavour than a normal meringue, and was very hard. It wasn't as airy as a proper meringue should be. So even a simple meringue biscuit was a disappointment.
The fireworks were still beautiful over the amazing castle, but Kira and I both agreed: we were done.
With heavy hearts, and lots to think about over this trip, we headed back to our hotel.
Constantly, I kept thinking back to the class I had during the Disney College Program where General Manager of food and beverage and store operations in Disney California Adventure, Gary Magetti, came and talked Disney Parks food with us. He told us about when he want to Tokyo Disney, they wanted to do typical theme park food, but he didn't allow it and they changed the menus.
Clearly, none of this has happened at Disneyland Paris.
The entire trip, including the next morning in Paris before returning to London, was filled with so many ups and downs. We took them for what they were and tried to enjoy where we were as best we could. I still had fun and am very thankful for the chance and experience of going to Disneyland Paris. It will never be forgotten.
