Exciting News! Plus, Disney's Aladdin The Musical Review


I have some really exciting news to share with you all...

The super Disney fans amongst you will probably be familiar with Disney fan-site, DisneyExaminer. It's kind of like an online magazine which quite literally 'examines' everything Disney from theme parks and movies to merchandise and shows.

Well, guess who is really happy to announce that they were asked to send through their thoughts on Disney's Aladdin The Musical which has now been published on the DisneyExaminer site... did I mention this mystery person is REALLY excited.

Yep, you guessed it!

I am really thrilled and (hopefully) you will be seeing a lot more of me over on the DisneyExaminer.

As ever, please let me know your thoughts in the comments section; I would love to know if you have seen the show and what your opinion was.

P.s. Look how awesome this mug and 'Jasmine' infused tea are...

I could not resist them! Honestly, the show was worth it just for these souvenirs!

How many times have you been to Disneyland?

Ladies and Gentlemice,

I hope you're having a brilliant summer and that the weather is good where you are! I am counting down the weeks to my China holiday which means my trip to Shanghai Disneyland is fast approaching. I am super excited! Thinking about my upcoming vacation reminded me of a question that I get asked a lot...

"How many times have you been to Disneyland?"

To which I usually playfully answer back with, "In California? Never!".

So this post is for you, the curious. A complete collection of every Disney vacation that I have ever taken*.

Enjoy x

Aladdin The Musical: My First Disney Bound

Disney bounding.

It's the craze that is taking over Disney Instagram accounts and parks by storm and yet, it's something that I had never tried out for myself... until now.

First off, a lot of you probably have no idea what a 'Disney bound' is so please, allow me to explain...

Dictionary of MercedesLois


1. A Disney bound is an outfit, not costume, inspired by a Disney character that you have put together using your own personal style and taste. You can find out a little more on the Disney bound site here.

Example: "I am totally going to do an Aurora inspired Disney bound the next time I go to the Magic Kingdom!"
Verb: Disney bounding

Hopefully that has cleared that up for you.

Now, some of you may recall that my lovely boyfriend bought me tickets to see Disney's Aladdin The Musical in London's West End for my Birthday and as Aladdin is my favourite Disney movie and Jasmine is my favourite Disney Princess, I decided that this was the perfect time to try out Disney bounding for myself.

My Thoughts: Disney and Pixar's Finding Dory

I have finally been to the cinema to discover the latest movie from Disney and Pixar, Finding Dory. Unsurprisingly, I had very high expectations...

As the sequel to the 2003 hit and firm fan favourite Finding Nemo, this movie really had a lot to live up to. Here are my thoughts on the movie; I'll let you be the judge as to whether or not you feel this movie was a strong enough follow-up to the original. Enjoy and as ever, please feel free to share your views in the comments section below.
