Getting the best deal on your next holiday

As a family, we’ve been very lucky to have two holidays abroad this year. The first was back in June when we went to Disneyland Paris, and the second was earlier month when we went to Menorca. Now, I’d like to point out that this isn’t a regular occurrence for us. We usually have just the one holiday, so I think it’s fair to say it’s been a truly good year in terms of holidays for us. Sadly the beginning of the year wasn’t great. My husband had a number of health scares, and ended up in and out of… [Read More]

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]

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]

Disneyland Hotel Review

If you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past month or so then you’ll be forgiven for not knowing that we’ve not long returned from a 5 day trip to Disneyland Paris. For the duration of our stay, we stayed in the Disneyland Hotel. As such I thought I’d write a little review about the hotel itself. I’ve already written up our trip report, which you can read here (day 1), here (day 2), here (day 3) and here (day 4)! Plus, if you’re after more Disney inspired posts, click here. I’ve also written a post called, Tips for Booking your… [Read More]

Disneyland Paris Trip Report Day 4

If you’ve enjoyed reading my Disney Trip Report, you can read them all here, along with lots more Disney posts! So day 4 is our last day in Disney. Sad times! We knew we had to make the most of our last day, so we crammed in as much as we could and that also meant watching the castle illuminations show one last time. On the morning of our last day, we had breakfast in inventions in our hotel (the Disney Hotel) and then we headed straight over to Frontierland as R was desperate to meet Peter Pan. When we… [Read More]

Disneyland Paris Trip Report Day 3

Following on from my last two posts, here’s our trip report for day 3 of our holiday to Disneyland Paris. To read all about day 1 click here. To read all about day 2 click here. This morning we had breakfast with the characters booked at Plaza Gardens which is a short walk from the Disney Hotel where we were staying. There was a bit of a queue to go in when we arrived, but it moved fairly quickly. We were shown to our seats and then just as we were going to go up and get breakfast the first… [Read More]
