Disneyland Paris 2018 Trip Report Day 5

You can read all about day five here. After breakfast, we headed over to the Walt Disney Studios and opened up the Lineberty app around 9.40am to try and book a meet with Captain America and Buzz Lightyear. I opened the app on both my phone and my husbands. I managed to book a slot for Buzz Lightyear in twenty minutes time, and Captain America around 3pm. We headed straight over to where the Buzz Lightyear meet was in Toon Plaza. There’s been some confusion over the way in which the bookable characters can be booked. It appears that a lot… [Read More]

Disneyland Paris 2018 Trip Report Day 4

To read all about day three, please click here. After the excitement of yesterdays Marvel Superhero Meal, my husband and I decided that today should be a bit more relaxed. After a buffet breakfast in the Disneyland Hotel, we headed into the park with no plans, but to enjoy the day. As we walked up Main Street, we saw that there was a very short queue to meet Donald Duck so we decided to join. This was during Early Magic Hours (EMH). Donald Duck was great, and my husband got a pretty cool selfie with him! Donal Duck signed the… [Read More]

Disneyland Paris 2018 Trip Report Day 3

To read all about Day 2, click here. Last night I went to the concierge desk in the Disneyland Hotel where we’re staying and asked about booking the Marvel meal. This is a meal in the Manhattan Restaurant inside the Newport Bay Hotel, in which you get to meet Captain America, Thor and Black Widow. Unfortunately, I was told that it was fully booked for the rest of our stay. I was disappointed, but we’d already met Captain America which was a bonus so I didn’t think of anymore of it. That was until the morning of day 3. I… [Read More]

Disneyland Paris 2018 Trip Report – Marvel Summer of Superheroes. Day Two!

After a very busy and exhausting first day, which you can read about here, day two was definitely a bit more chilled! We woke up feeling rejuvenated from a good nights sleep, but by 1pm we were all exhausted again! We started the day with a character breakfast in Plaza Gardens. This is a buffet style restaurant just off main street. Breakfast is a mixture of hot and cold foods, including cereals, cheeses etc. Whilst you’re sitting down, the characters come over to your table so that you can have a photo with them and they can sign your autograph… [Read More]

Disneyland Paris 2018 Trip Report – Marvel Summer of Superheroes. Day One!

We’ve recently returned from a wonderful trip to Disneyland Paris. We went last year for four full days, and decided that we’d like to return again this year for longer. Back in October 2017 we booked our 2018 holiday for six full days! Some people will say this is too long, but for us it was perfect! We were able to do so much more than last year. We left on Saturday 9th June and flew from Cardiff airport. We spent the first night in Hotel Kyriad, but caught the free shuttle bus to Disneyland so that we could collect… [Read More]

Review: West Midland Safari Park Ice Age Exhibit

West Midland Safari Park is one of our favourite family days out. It’s only a 90-120 minute drive from our home in Cardiff, and it’s an absolutely brilliant day out! The park opens at 10am, so we like to arrive a good twenty minutes beforehand so that we can be as close to the front of the queue as possible! Once you’ve bought your tickets and animal you can drive into the drive-through safari area. First up you’ll find deer, and wild dogs, followed by Rhino’s, lions, tigers, zebras, elephant and my favourite, giraffes! I love feeding the giraffes! They’re… [Read More]

Sightseeing in Rome, Italy

Italy has often been described as many different things. The country of love and romance, of fashion and art, and of course, the country of food! Italy is many things to many people, and for me it will always be known as the country of love. Rome, the capital of Italy, is one of the first places my husband and I went on holiday together. One of the best ways to really make yourself feel at home is to look at some homes for rent in Italy. Nothing makes a stay more enjoyable than being able to retreat back to a… [Read More]
