The Disneyland Paris Survey!

This is SO exciting! In an official first, Disneyland Paris have created an online survey to find out more about Disneyland Paris fans!! The cool thing about this survey is that you can still take part even if you've never been to Disneyland Paris, they still want to hear what you think! :D

The survey can be completed in both English and French :) It also includes other Disney related questions not necessarily related to the Parks :) AND one of the questions is a tick list of Disneyland Paris websites that you visit - including some of my favourites Dedicated to Dlp and Designing Disney! Please be sure to tick them! There's also an option at the bottom for 'other' ... hint hint :P

The survey opened yesterday and will remain open until 12th December - so y'all have plenty of time to give it a bash! :D This is an awesome opportunity for Disneyland Paris Fans and general Disney fans alike to share what we think and what we would like to see at Disneyland Paris :)

Wordless Wednesday!

My first ever visit to the Magic Kingdom last month - I took the FerryBoat! Believe it or not I had no idea I would have to cross water to get to the Magic Kingdom!

In Disneyland Paris the ticket booths and the turnstiles are only a short distance from each other - so buying tickets and having to take a Ferry or a Monorail to get to the turnstiles was a whole new ball game for me! I always talk about Disney offering a sense of escapism ... adding a short Ferry trip between my the real world and my dream world only makes the Magic Kindgom even more ... well ... Magical! :) Like venturing to a foreign land not like any other on earth! :D

The Disneyland Paris 20th Anniversary e-Brochure!

I was planning on dropping into some local travel agents today to try to pick up the new Disneyland Paris Brochure for Winter 2011/Summer 2012! But ... I haven't managed yet! And Dedicated to Dlp beat me to it by blogging about the e-brochure! ( Why didn't I think of that!? :P )

I clicked through to the Official e-Brochure and by golly was I gob-smacked!! Check this out!! You can click these photos to enlarge them - but be sure to go to the official brochure! You can interact with it a lot more :)

This cover is WAY prettier than the Mickey Mouse (bad photoshop job) one I saw last week :)

Disney Lols!

Happy Monday everyone! Here are this weeks Disney Lols! :)

20th Anniversary and 'Dreams' Night-time Spectacular Visuals for Disneyland Paris!

I was over at the Designing Disney Facebook page yesterday and saw these awesome visuals for Disneyland Paris' 20th Anniversary Celebrations! If you haven't checked out Designing Disney ... please do! It's an amazing site!! There's tons of information on the Design and History of not only Disneyland Paris, but also Walt Disney World, Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland too :)

For this one ... I'll start off with the positive - I love the 20th Anniversary logo! The 'Swoosh' around the 20 it really nice and the colours are great! When it comes to Mickey though ... I'm sorta disappointed. His head stuck onto that suit with the sorcerer hat on top looks like a bad photo-shop job lol! There's two different textures - a computer generated body and hat paired with a photographic finish head ... it just looks odd :( 

Scottish Shortbread! The Virtual Food & Wine Festival!

I'm SO excited to be joining the Virtual Food & Wine Festival over at Focused on the Magic! A big big Thank You!! to Debs for asking me to take part! :D

Focused on the Magic

As many of you may know ... I'm Scottish! And super proud to be so too :) 
So what better treat from around the world to share with you than Scottish Shortbread!

Disneyland Paris - What I look forward to most!

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Black!
Enjoy the ride as we share with you what we look forward to the most at Disneyland Paris!

If you're a fan of my blog you'll know that Disneyland Paris is my favourite place in the world! I visited Walt Disney World for the first time in October ... and even after being there ... Disneyland Paris is still my favourite! I think a big part of it is nostalgia ... I first visited way back when it opened in 1992 at the age of just 5! So it's a massive part of my childhood :) And it's continued to be a massive part of my life ever since!

What I look forward to when I visit Disneyland Paris is ... everything! Walking through the gardens down to the Disneyland Hotel ... going under the Disneyland Railroad to be met by the sights and sounds and smells of Main Street ... walking round town square to be met by the breath-taking view of Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant! And all the attractions! Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Phantom Manor, Peter Pan's Flight, Le Carrousel de Lancelot, Pirates of the Caribbean and Buzz Lightyears Laser Blast are among my favourites! I can hardly contain myself every time I arrive!!

But what I look forward to the most is ... spending time with my family in a place we all love! I'm sure everyone knows what I'm talking about when I say Disneyland Paris offers a sense of escapism. We've been on family vacations elsewhere - but it's just not the same. Disneyland Paris is the only place I know that can make my mum totally forget the stresses of everyday life, make my dad skip down Main Street, make my sisters get on like best friends and not bicker :P and make me cry with happiness :) It really is like an alternate universe ... and I love seeing how happy and relaxed it makes my family :) They mean everything to me, so to have somewhere that can make that happen is Magical :)

I also asked my family what they look forward to the most :) My mum loves Peter Pan's Flight! She would quite happily sit on that attraction all day long lol! My little sister loves the fireworks (so do I!) and the parades :) and my littler sister loves Pirates of the Caribbean and meeting characters! Her favourite is Stitch but she loves meeting all the princess' too :) My dad also loves the fireworks :) We're a total fireworks family! We go to see them most nights when we're there! :D

We love Disney fireworks so much we tired to re-create some Disney Magic on Fireworks night last weekend :) We set off fireworks in our garden with some music playing ... but because the fireworks were so close they drowned out the music! But it was worth a try! :P

Thank you for joining me today! :)

More Disney Pumpkins!

Hope y'all had a Happy Halloween!! For those of you who have been on my Facebook ... you'll know I'm having a bit of a blogging dry spell at the moment! I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things soon and get my blogging mojo back! :P But for now I thought I'd quickly share with you some more Disney Pumpkins that my boyfriend, my sister and I carved on Halloween! I know it's past now, but better late than never! :P

First up, it's Hades! My bf made the stencil for this one himself :)
