My favourite Disney Princesses… revisited!

Hey!

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?

My 28th Birthday

28! I can't quite believe it, can you?!

I have had the best week celebrating in style with my family and friends, eating, drinking, and partaking in much silliness!


As with previous years, this post is a little celebration of the lovely gifts that I received for my Birthday that are (naturally) DISNEY THEMED!



I should also just add that this post is in no way meant to be 'boastful' or come across as bragging at all. I'm incredibly touched by the generosity of my loved ones year after year, and know how much you all love finding out about cool Disney products and merchandise so this post always seems like a lovely way of blending the two things together!

Without further ado, let's get stuck in!



AladdinXPrimark Make Up Bag from my lovely friend and ChatDisney co-host, Tash
With the release of the live action Aladdin last month, and Jasmine being my all time favourite Disney princess, I received lots of lovely bits and pieces featuring the characters of Agrabah - perfect timing Disney! My friends Tash, Steph and Dan all bought me beauty pieces from the AladdinXPrimark collection which I was thrilled about as every time I popped in there, they had sold out!

Tips for a first time visit to Disneyland in California

Hey everybody!

Despite my California trip feeling like a long, long, long time ago, I recently received a lovely message from an old Uni friend which has completely sparked up my passion for the West Coast resort once again!

The individual in question explained that he is visiting LA for his Honeymoon, and he is a self professed Theme Park fan. Essentially, he wanted some insight into both Disneyland and California Adventure from a fellow 'expert', and I was of course more than happy to oblige.

Whilst composing my response to him I thought, like any good marketeer does, yeah, there's some content in there! So there you have it – this is going to be a pretty niche post but hopefully, my insight into the Californian Disney parks will help some of you as you venture off on your first trip to Anaheim and experience the one that started them all.

Enjoy! And if you have anything you'd like to add to this, or any further Disney related questions, you can find my contact details on the blog!
