Disneyland Paris 2018 Trip Report – Our Last Day

To read about day five, click here. All week, we have been trying to go on the boat ride behind the ‘It’s a small world ride’, but every time we’ve gone over it’s been closed. Today, our last day, we got lucky! The boat ride is called Le Pays Des Contes de Fees, and it’s alongside the Casey Jnr Train Ride. One our visit last year, we had no idea that these rides exist as they’re kind of hidden away, but when I saw them on the map this year, I knew I wanted us to go on them! The… [Read More]

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]

Disney Bedroom Makeover

We’ve been living in our current home for around three years. When we first moved in we promised our twin girls that we would decorate their bedroom. Fast forward three years and we still hadn’t got around to decorating it. We’re renting so spending money on redecorating a home we don’t own wasn’t top of the list of our priorities. However, our twins turned six years old this year and the Frozen themed curtains just seemed too babyish all of a sudden. After our holiday to Disney, we promised our girls that we would redecorate their bedroom. I didn’t want… [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]

10 Things That Make Me Happy

I was recently tagged in the 10 Things That Make Me Happy tag by Bound For Somewhere. You can read her post here. So without further ado, and in no particular order here are 10 things that make me happy. 1. My husband and children. Yes, it’s a cliche and it’s the ‘obvious answer’ that most likely everyone will say, but it’s true. Without these crazies, I’d actually be pretty unhappy. Hubby drives me crazy with his constant moving of things around and don’t even get me started on his snoring, but I do love him and he does make… [Read More]
