Last month, I really enjoyed working on more Disney related posts such as What Disney Means to Me and My Favourite Disney Items. Disney has always been a huge part of my life ever since I was little, I have a Disney category on my blog but I rarely post anything in it so I’ve worked hard on turning that around and going forward, I would love to feature Disney related posts much more regularly. Disneyland Paris holds a very special place in my heart. It was my first holiday ever when I was 5 and I’ve been twice since then. I’m dying to go back which I have faith that I will do soon but for now, I’m talking about my favourite Disneyland Paris attractions!
I recently blogged about what Disney means to me and that was a post I really enjoyed writing. Disney is a huge part of my life, my self and my childhood so I would like to blog about it more. I’m not a collector of Disney merch. In fact, I’m not a collector of anything because I hate hoarding stuff and literally throw everything away at the first chance I get. However, I do have some treasured Disney items at home that I absolutely love and that mean a lot to me. I might not have four thousand Tsum Tsum’s or all the movies on DVD but in no particular order, here are 5 of my favourite Disney items I own!

A little while ago, I ran a poll on Twitter asking what kind of posts you’d like to see more of from me. I’m sure most of the people who voted just voted on the general kind of blog posts they like reading from anyone – not me specifically (I don’t think I’m that special) but still, I like to take on board what people enjoy reading and try and cater to that. One of the most popular options was Disney. Which surprised me a little bit. I know there’s a humongous Disney community on Twitter but there’s also a humongous amount of people who aren’t that bothered about Disney or who like it but wouldn’t necessarily go out of their way to read Disney related blog posts.
You know me, I love Disney. That’s no secret. And a major part of many Disney films are the messages and lessons they try and teach us within them. Most of these films come with quotes and I for one, love a good quote. I think quotes (not just Disney ones) can help us realise that we’re not the only one feeling how we’re feeling and finding a quote that sums up perfectly how we’re feeling at that specific time… Well, is there anything like it? And as well as the fun and the magic, Disney has some amazing, life-affirming quotes and today I want to share with you 10 of my favourites!
If you cut open my veins (what a charming way to start a post), you’d probably find fairy dust instead of blood. Disney is in my blood and I’ve loved it ever since I was 5 years old and my parents took me to Disneyland. Granted, I wasn’t big enough to go on much but I can imagine it was an very magical time. Like most Disney fans, the movies play a huge part in that childhood (and adulthood) passion. Today I want to talk about those movies which aren’t always raved about – like Frozen or The Lion King. The hidden gems. The ones that often get over-looked. I absolutely adore all of these movies and can’t believe they’re not rated as highly as some others!
About a billion years now ago, I was tagged by Hailey from The Undateable Girl’s Diary to take part in ‘The Alice 1951 Tag’ (ok it was only a month ago but whatevs). The tag includes Alice in Wonderland themed questions from the original Disney classic, which I absolutely adore so I knew I wanted to give this one a go, I just completely forgot about it and ya’no, life got in the way – as per usual. But, better late than never so here are my answers and I will tag anyone who loves Disney and Alice in Wonderland! But don’t forget to credit Danielle, from Underland to Wonderland who created the tag!
I love every aspect of a Disneyland Paris holiday: from the journey on the Eurostar, the hotel, the parades and the character meets. But the rides and attractions also play a huge part of the holiday for me. I’m not a lover of big, big rides so Disneyland is ideal for me because most of the rides aren’t too scary but some are just enough to give you a thrill! I’ve spent many an hour queuing for all the rides at Disneyland Paris so here are some of my favourites.
I was talking to my friend recently about Disney princesses and other females in Disney films, when I mentioned that Pocahontas, Mulan and Esmeralda were my favourites when I was little. ‘What?!’ she exclaimed, ‘Those are the worst ones!’
This got me thinking about Disney films which I love but don’t seem to have won over as many people as the BIG Disney films. These are the films which I will watch over and over, know the songs off by heart and adore the storyline and characters, but which would be easy to forget about if you visited the Disney Store or any of the Disney parks because they don’t seem to get a look in when it comes to merchandise, characters or shows.

As well as it’s memorable characters, uplifting moments and incredible songs, Disney films are also often known for their extremely emotional scenes. It doesn’t matter that it’s an animation or that you’re 23 years-old – some Disney films will never fail to make you cry. Here’s 5 of my most heart-wrenching Disney moments, although it was extremely hard to narrow down!
I simply could not pass up the opportunity to take part in this tag – I love Disney, you love Disney, we all love Disney (okay well maybe not all of us and if you don’t love Disney then seriously, what happened to make you this way?) I pinched the questions from Danielle at Underland to Wonderland who’s post you can find here. Enjoy and feel free to pinch! Oh and apparently this tag was supposed to be done in 5 minutes but I didn’t get that memo so it took me more like 5 days.
