Meeting Disney Princesses at Disneyland Paris

Bonjour Madams et Monsieurs,

I just got back from an incredible four night stay at Disneyland Paris! 

I do of course have A LOT of content to share with you in the way of photos, videos and top tips so keep an eye out on my Instagram, YouTube and of course, right here on My Disney Blog!

For now, as you all enjoyed my Disney Princess Hunt  from two years ago so much, here is a little updated list of how you can spot each of the Disney Princesses at Disneyland Paris!


(*Please note that all information is correct as of January 2018. Schedules are changed frequently at Disney Theme Parks so this may not be accurate at the time of your travel.)

  • Snow White is currently in Disney Stars on Parade in the Main Disney Park together with her Prince.
  • Snow White sometimes dines at Auberge De Cendrillon. During our stay, Auberge De Cendrillon hosted Cinderella plus two Princess friends and Suzy and Perla during each sitting.
  • Snow White and Dopey are sometimes spotted wandering the halls of the Disneyland Paris Hotel.
  • Snow White is sometimes available to meet with at the Princess Pavilion. Currently, one princess is present during the morning and another in the afternoon.

My Thoughts on Pinocchio at The National Theatre

On Friday evening, I had the absolute pleasure of accompanying my good friend (and fellow Disney devotee) to the National Theatre's production of Pinocchio.

The original 1883 tale of The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi, is a very dark and sometimes sinister narrative. Disney pay homage to this in their 1940s adaptation of the story, but cleverly intertwine the more frightening scenes with magical moments for family enjoyment in the way that only Disney entertainment can. I was interested in which vibe the National's production would opt for in their interpretation...

My First YouTube Video: My Thoughts on Shanghai Disneyland

Hey Ladies and Gents,

On today, Blue Monday, I thought, why not share a little Disney cheer?

With that said, I have finally posted my first ever YouTube video! 

That's right - My Disney Blog is now VISUAL and AUDIO!

My first post is all about my experiences in Shanghai Disneyland during the Grand Opening in 2016... it's only taken me a year and a half to post it!

Countdown to Disneyland Paris...

Hey everyone!

It's January. *Sigh*

I'm back to work, the weather is miserable, I'm attempting to drink more water, the gym is packed and my 'temporary' 2018 diet has begun...

How depressing!

I'd say this means that it's the perfect time for a little Disneyland pick me up, wouldn't you?

If you've already read my Christmas blog post, then you will know that my (not-so-Grumpy) Boyfriend is treating me to an amazing trip to Disneyland Paris this month: I can't believe it!

With just 20 days to go, I'm already planning out our itinerary and making dining reservations for during our stay. 

In my sheer excitement, I thought you might be interested to hear what I have planned so far...
