My Top Tips for Visiting Disneyland Paris in the Winter Months. It might be freezing cold but it won’t stop you from having a wonderful time. We went to Disneyland Paris in February last year and although the weather was cold we had a fantastic time and we didn’t let it spoil our time there. On the lead up to us going I was reading on some forums that fountains had frozen over, drinking water fountains had frozen pipes and all sorts. It was kind of handy to be honest because we have never been on a ‘cold’ holiday before so it enabled me to be prepared for our trip. I made sure I packed things that would help us on our trip and I thought they would be handy to share my tips and tricks with you if you have a trip planned for the colder months. Layers…

On Wednesday 4th October I was very excited to have been invited to #BlogCampOnBoard hosted by Tots 100, and MSC Cruises, on board the MSC Preziosa cruise liner. I had never been to a blogging conference before let alone on a cruise ship, hence my excitement. The MSC Preziosa was going to be docked in Southampton for the day so this gave us the chance to explore the ship as day guests as well as attend various blogging sessions if we wanted to. When I arrived at Southampton docks it wasn’t hard to spot where I needed to be. The Preziosa was absolutely beautiful and that was from afar. I couldn’t believe the size of her (not surprising seeing as she has 18 decks, 14 of which are for guests). The sun was already shining and it got me excited to get on board and explore what she had to offer.…

If you’re planning a holiday to Florida and are looking for family accommodation then I can thoroughly recommend the Lake Buena Vista Resort Village & Spa, as a perfect place to stay on your holiday. By doing some research we come across these perfect apartments within a hotel environment. Having only been built in 2006 and had some refurbished work carried out in 2017, there are 495 apartments spaced out over 5 buildings, which consist of either private one, two, three or four bedrooms, sleeping from 1-10 people. Each apartment has a fully equipped kitchen, a jacuzzi bath in the master bedroom, flat screen TV’s in the living area and all bedrooms, a living room with a sofa bed if extra sleeping space is needed, a washer and dryer and also high-speed internet. They have absolutely everything you might need for your Orlando stay. I don’t know about you but when…

Booking a holiday to Disneyland Paris can be overwhelming and sometimes confusing .. especially if you’ve never been before. There are lots of different ways to book, lots of accommodation to choose from, ways of getting to there and different meal options. Booking your Disneyland Holiday. There are various different companies you can choose to book with. We chose to book with Disney Holidays direct themselves. Very often they run different offers which could be free meal plans added, a percentage off your holiday, buy a number of nights and get the same again free, children under seven stay and play for free (which would be free hotel and park tickets). If you’re planning on making a booking it’s worth checking back every so often to see if they have added on any special offers. A few other companies I have heard people using are Magic Breaks & Thomas Cook.  I’m sure there…

I thought I would do a little throwback series for the next few weeks re-capping our holiday to Disney World in Florida. At the time of going I kept a daily blog which was only ever used for that holiday and i’m so pleased I did. Every night I would sit down and document what we had done each day even down to what kind of weather we had. I love reading it back every so often reliving the memories. On this day we went to Disney’s Aquatica water park. Todays Weather – 77f (25c) Well the drive into the park looked really promising, it was quiet n the car-park despite it being a good hour after it opened so we hope that meant the queues would be nice a low for the rides. The first ride we went on was the water slide that sent you through the dolphin…
