Disney Summer - Typhoon Lagoon!

Welcome to another installment of the Disney Summer Fun Series at Mandas Disney Blog!

Please give a warm welcome to another Guest Blogger - the awesome Dizzneemomma from 


Dizzneemomma has been to Walt Disney World 15 times so far - equaling over 100 days in the WDW parks!! She's found that her travelling style has changed over the years, and she's now more laid back. She believes the best way to enjoy a Disney vacation is to go with the flow - she calls this her 'Without-a-Care-in-the-World' style. And her blog reflects this style! Jump over to 'Without A Care In The World' and you'll find amazing photos, trip reports, and opinions on all things Disney!

I just love Dizzneemomma's blog! She always has amazing Wordless Wednesday posts - her photos are brilliant! The way she writes is such a pleasure to read, her blog is fun-loving and relaxed - which makes for great reading snuggled up on the sofa in the evenings! I always find myself getting lost in her fantastic Trip Reports! Please be sure to check it out!

Thank you SO much Dizzneemomma for taking the time to be my Guest here at Mandas Disney Blog!

Something About Me Saturday Blog Hop! Rainbow Cupcakes!

So 2 weeks ago in my 'Something About Me Saturday' post I said that my sister and I were gona attempt Rainbow Cupcakes! ... we failed ... miserably! lol! We used water based food colouring which wasn't great at colouring the cake batter ... and then it evaporated completely in the oven! So I did a little research an found out that I needed concentrated gel food colouring - which I couldn't find anywhere so I ordered some online from America! If finally came a few days ago ... and here are the results!

Chocolate Coated Marshmallow Sticks from Disneyland Paris!


In the Summer I love settling in on the pavement and people-watching until the Fantillusion parade! But before choosing my spot I always stock up in snacks to have with me! One of my favourite candy snacks in Disneyland Paris is the Chocolate Coated Marshmallow sticks! Or as they're known in Dlp 'Guimauve enrobées'! These are available at the Boardwalk Candy Palace on Main Street :)


It's not the best pic but you get the idea! :P They come with just chocolate coating (Chocolat), Chocolate with sprinkles (Chocolat Vermicelles) or Chocolate with coconut (Chocolat noix de coco) and sell for around 2 Euros each :) My favourite is the one with chocolate and sprinkles!

With the long Summer nights officially here - I thought I would try to re-create this really simple treat at home to munch on while I watch the Fantillusion parade on YouTube in my garden in a desperate attempt to imagine I'm in Disneyland Paris on a warm summer night :) lol!

awesome Mandas Roundup logo! It's just like Woodys! Yee Ha!)

I reported the Return of the Enchanted Fireworks for the Summer Season at Disneyland Paris with some cool photos and a video of the Display from last year! 
I also learned that I had been announced 'The Best Magics' Blog of the Month!

Tuesday


I took part in my 2nd loop with Magical Blogorail Black! We all wrote about the best thing to happen to Walt Disney World in the last 40 years! I had a little trouble with this one since I've never been :P - So I wrote about the opening of the Wedding Pavilion in 1995, since you can't get married in my native Disneyland Paris!

Wednesday


I had a very special guest for a new instalment in my Disney Summer Fun Series! Melissa from Disney on Wheels! She showed us how to make the No Way Jose Ice Cream Sundae from Beaches and Cream!
I also posted a fun photo of the Disney All Starts Express in Disneyland Paris for Wordless Wednesday!

Thursday


Disney Blog Hop day with Babes in Disneyland! This weeks theme was Winnie the Pooh! I posted some cute pictures that I made of some of my favourite quotes from this silly old bear :)


Thursday was also Bastille Day! I posted about how Disneyland Paris celebrate this French National Day with a big bang! Also, two awesome Disney tweeps Pascal and Angeline, who were lucky enough to be in Disneyland Paris for the Bastille Day Fireworks, were kind enough to let me post some of their photos!

Friday


I blogged about the new Disney Magical Moments Festival Promotion in Morrisons stores here in the UK! There were loads of pictures of my card collection so far and some videos of the in-store banners!

Saturday

On Saturdays I usually take part in the Something About Me Satuday Blog hop from Disney Bird but unfortunately I didn't have time yesterday! I've been dashing about all weekend trying to get presents for the bfs brothers 18th Birthday that's this week! He's impossible to buy for! We eventually picked up some stuff today and I wanted to show you guys but I can't in case he happens to stumble on here during the week! :P

Disney Magical Moments at Morrisons!

I popped into my local Morrison's store this week to find that they were doing a HUGE Disneyland Paris promotion for the Magical Moments Festival! So here's how it works - you buy certain items in store and you get a pack of Magical Moments Cards!

Update 
You can now also get one pack of Magical Moments cards for every complete £30 spent in store! (Two packs with £60 spent, three with £90 etc) So you don't even need to buy specific products to take part! Yipee!

If you find a Golden Card in your packet - you win 1 of 1000 magical stays at Disneyland Paris!

Happy Bastille Day!

Bastille Day or 'La Fête Nationaleis' is the French National Day, celebrated on the 14th of July every year! And since Disneyland Paris is in ... well ... France :P they celebrate it with a HUGE fireworks display! Check out last years display in this great video below! :)


I was lucky enough to see the Bastille Day fireworks display in when I visited in July 2003! I had no idea this was going to be happening and was SO super excited when I saw it on the schedule that morning!! The best thing was, they also ran the regular fireworks beforehand! Double firework whammy! :D

And now for a short history lesson if anyone is interested! :P

Bastille Day is the Anniversary of the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison on 14th July 1789 - which was seen as a symbol of the uprising of the modern nation, and of the reconciliation of all the French inside the constitutional monarchy which preceded the First Republic, during the French Revolution. 


Many festivities and official ceremonies are held all over France. The oldest and largest regular military parade in Europe is held on the morning of 14th July, on the Champs-Élysées Avenue in Paris in front of the President of the Republic, French officials and foreign guests. Doesn't that look awesome!? :)

Happy Bastille Day Everyone!

Disney Blog Hop Thursday! Winnie the Pooh!

Welcome to this weeks Disney Blog Hop hosted by the wonderful Lisa from Babes in Disneyland!
If you're new to the hop ... Hi there! If you've been here before ... well Hello again! :D

Please be sure to check out the rest of the Disney Blog Hoppers over at the Babes in Disneyland Blog!

This weeks theme is "Winnie the Pooh"!


Winnie the Pooh definitely looks and acts like a "Silly old bear" alright. But the thing I love most about this adorable bear is that some of the things he says are actually pretty inspiring :) So I made some cute pictures of some of my favourite Pooh Bear quotes :)












Pretty deep huh? :P

I have a confession to make ... I haven't seen the new Winnie the Pooh movie yet! It was released here in the UK back in April, but there wasn't a huge fuss around it at all! :( So I'm super excited that there seems to be so much enthusiasm in the US for it's release this Friday! It's nice to see Pooh Bear and the rest of the Hundred Acre Wood gang get the attention they deserve! I'm pretty sure it's not even in theaters here anymore ... so I'll have to wait for the Dvd release :)

Who's heading to theaters this Friday to see Winnie the Pooh?? :)
I've got a funny feeling Harry Potter might beat it in terms of cinema attendance :( 
But let's hope Harry doesn't steal too much of the limelight from our Silly Old Bear :)

Don't forget to check out the rest of the Disney Blog Hoppers over at the Babes in Disneyland Blog! :D

Happy Thursday everyone! :D
