My favourite Disney Park Snacks!

Hey everyone!

I hope you're all having a great Summer so far! It was Pride weekend in Brighton last weekend, plus I had a Wedding too... so it's been super, super busy!

For those of you that have followed the blog or my social channels for a while now, you'll know that one of my favourite things (perhaps my all time favourite thing) about visiting Disney Parks is the food. It's been a while since I did a food related post so I thought it was about time I shook things up!

Yippee! Mickey's Candy Cotton Soda from Disney's California Adventure Food and Wine Festival

For any of you that have listened to the ChatDisney Podcast, you'll know that I have been less than impressed with some of the food offerings at Disneyland Paris and Shanghai Disneyland in recent years so I felt, in order to balance out the negativity with the positivity, the yin to the yang, it was about time I highlighted my favourite things to eat at Disney Parks. Enjoy! And don't get too hungry glancing through this list!

My Biggest Disney Fear Reveal...


I hope you're all having a brilliant Summer! Mine has been a lot more chilled than last year – I had six weddings to attend in 2018, so as I'm sure you can imagine, it was pretty full on!

Not having as many plans this year has naturally got me thinking about travel plans and getaways which I have been discussing with Grumpy...

He's not super keen on going away again this year as, SPOILER, we may be getting a puppy...

Watch this space!

But, naturally, this week we begun discussing possible travel plans anyway and as usual, we arrived after much discussion at the F word...


At this point, the discussion usually goes from optimistic and exciting, to damn right argumentative.

I should let you know that Grumpy, the hater of all things Disney, has no desire to go to Walt Disney World in Orlando, and this in itself is resulting in a very realistic fear for me...

My favourite Disney Princesses… revisited!


If you have been a follower of the My Disney Blog for a while, you may remember my original Top 5 Disney Princess post a little while back.

As a pretty opinionated, but easily influenced person, my favourite things can often be quite interchangeable, so I really wanted to go back and revisit this post to examine my favourite Disney Princesses right now, and see if they’re the same as before!

The list is mostly unchanged...

Previous Favourites:

1. Princess Jasmine
2. Belle
3. Pocahontas
4. Princess Aurora
5. Merida

Current Favourites:

1. Princess Jasmine
2. Belle
3. Princess Aurora
4. Elsa
5. Pocahontas

Obviously the list has shuffled around a little, but the real big change is the removal of Merida and the addition of our very own Snow Queen, Elsa. I suppose technically both Elsa and her little sister Anna are not included in the official Disney Princess line-up, as Frozen is very much considered it’s own franchise but, for the purposes of this list, I wanted to include them regardless.

So... Queen Elsa. 

What is it about her that I really like? And why has she replaced Merida in my Top 5?
