How to make sure you eat delicious food at Disneyland Paris

Hello my little Disneys,

What a busy start to the year it has been!

Between getting back from Disneyland Paris, planning and celebrating my Engagement Party, and hosting my very close friend's Baby Shower, January has gone pretty quickly for me, and I'm pleased we're heading into the Spring months...

During my Disneyland Paris trip, something that I was super concerned about was of course, as ever, the food.

Ironically, based in the culinary capital of the world, Disneyland Paris has become notorious amongst park goers for offering some of the worst tasting and "laziest" treats and snacks that Disney parks have to offer.

This "how to" post will serve as a guide to ensure that you eat the very best of what Disneyland Paris has to offer, and will also help you to avoid the duds, leaving you with extra cash to spend on delicious treats elsewhere.

Enjoy! And remember that to hear even more from me and my recent Disneyland Paris trip, you can head over to the ChatDisney podcast!

My co-host (and friend) Tash and I post weekly on Monday mornings, and cover all kinds of topics from parks to movies, merchandise to marvel, and beyond!

Disney Princesses, Gotta Catch 'Em All!

Happy new year!

I hope you all had a great festive break, and I wish you all the best for 2020!

As it's a new year, and often a time for people to make resolutions and new focuses for the upcoming year ahead, I thought rather than dwell on what I'm yet to achieve, I would instead focus my energies on the small wins that I have already accomplished, and reflect on some positives for a change! And then it hit me...

I realised that I have met every single Disney Princess at Disney parks. 

(Yes, including Queens Anna and Elsa.)

If this is something that you too would like to achieve at some point, then this list is for you!
Here are just some of the ways that I have encountered Disney Princesses at Disney Parks over the last 28 years! There are probably more, but this is all I can recall right now.

All I want for Christmas...

Hello fellow Disneys!

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas! I know I certainly did!

As often happens over the festive season, I was very lucky to receive several amazing Disney inspired gifts this year.

From Minnie Mouse PJs, to Disney Blu Rays and more, this blog post is dedicated to all of the wonderful things that I received this year, and serves as a huge THANK YOU to those that gifted them to me.

Santa was very generous this year and in my stocking, not only did I receive the awesome Minnie PJs pictured above, but also, Ralph Breaks The Internet on Blu Ray for my collection, a Princess Jasmine magic lamp lip balm and bubble bath, and Disney face masks, hair masks and foot masks! Perfect pamper gifts!
