Disney Lols!

This week I bring you another awesome Guest Disney Lol! This time it's from Amy at Disney Living


 "This is a picture of my youngest daughter feasting on chocolate mousse at EPCOT France in Disney World. That's my sister being silly over her shoulder"

I gotta admit ... this is a pretty epic Lol! I burst out laughing when I opened it! It definitely brightened up my day! Thank you so much to Amy from Disney Living for sending me this brilliant Disney Lol!

Please be sure to check out Amy's amazing Disney site Disney Living! She's a fairly new blogger so show her some Disney love! I'm already hooked! She made me laugh with this post about the famous Dole Whip! And this post about how to make a Mickey Mouse Mei Tai Slipcover blew me away! It's so cool! :D

And as if Amy's Lol wasn't funny enough, here's some more Disney Lols! :)





And remember! I'd love for you guys to get involved

Do you have a funny Disney related photo? Maybe from the parks or even from home :) If you'd like to see it on Mandas Disney Blog as part of the Disney Lols fun, please send it over to manda@mandasdisneyblog.com, or click on the 'Email Manda' button near the top right side of my blog!

Disney Friday Funny!

I took this photo long before I had a Disney blog and I forgot all about it! I could have saved it for my Lols on Monday ... but I thought I'd share a 'funny' on a Friday! I'm real tired today so I could use the pick me up! :P


Looks like some regular Disney Princess stamper pens right? Look closer at the description on the bottom left corner ...


Yep ... 'Feutres Tampons' ... buahaha! Boy that made me giggle! (I know ... soo immature :P lol!)

According to Google Translator, 'Feutres Tampons' translates to 'Felt Pads' in English. Now since these are felt stamper pens ... or pads? ... I guess it makes sense! Isn't it funny how things translate sometimes!? lol!

Have a happy Friday everyone! Especially Emma and Victoria from Twitter! They're both heading to WDW tomorrow! Bon Voyage!! :D

Under the Sea Mr Crab Dinner!

I picked up this recipe card at Morrisons almost 2 months ago and completely forgot to show you guys! How cute is this?? :D



If you wana try this recipe, simply click on the photo to make it bigger :)

I haven't tried this recipe myself but it looks fun!

Although I'm not sure if I know any kids who would eat this ... cabbage and salad leaves?? But who knows, maybe with a little Disney magic and imagination they would forget it's a healthy meal and enjoy making and eating an Under the Sea Mr Crab Dinner! :D

Have a happy Tuesday everyone! :)

Disneyland Paris Family Traditions!


Welcome to those of you joining me from 
 and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the final stop on our Magical Blogorail!

This week members of Magical Blogorail Black are writing about Disney Family Traditions!


Every time I've been to Disneyland Paris with my Family, we always stay at the awesome Thomas Cook Explorers Hotel!


It might only have 3 stars but this is a fantastic hotel! Whilst it's not a Disney hotel, it's what is known as a 'Disney Selected Hotel' ... and the theming is definitely to the Disney standard!

Welcome to the French Mansion of Sir Archibald de Bacle, the legendary explorer! Inside, journey to the four corners of the world to experience mystery and adventure!



I've heard many people say they would hate to stay 'off Disney property' ... but I've only ever stayed in this hotel and another Disney Selected Hotel - the Kyriad! And trust me ... both have been brilliant! The reason I've stayed in these hotels rather than Disney hotels is value for money. You can stay in a hotel just as awesome as a Disney one (in my opinion lol) for (usually) much less :)

They might be a little further from the Disney Parks than other hotels at Disney, but the free shuttle service to and from the Parks is second to none! Operating from 6.30am to 11.50pm, a pink shuttle bus links the hotel to the Parks every 10-15 minutes during peak hours! It can get a little busy, since the same service runs through 3 other Disney Selected Hotels - the Kyriad, Dream Castle and Magic Circus. But it's so frequent that it's never too much bother to wait for the next one :)

The Explorers is amazing for families ... just check out the pool! And this is only one corner of it! It has 3 slides and is open from 8am-11pm!




There's also a Disney Boutique with souvenirs, clothes, toys, stationery, cuddly toys, postcards, baby-care items and photo accessories, a 24 hour reception, free wi-fi, 3 restaurants, 2 bars, and kids playgrounds!

Another cool thing about the Explorers is that you have the option of staying in a themed suite! A glittering Planet Hollywood Suite, a Jungle Suite, and the cleverly named Sweet Suite! I haven't been lucky enough to stay in one yet but check out these photos!





I just love this hotel! Every stay I've had has been just amazing! I'd highly recommend it to anyone visiting Disneyland Paris! I've got so excited and giddy over just writing about it! lol! I don't think I would want to stay anywhere else with my family in Disneyland Paris :) This hotel holds so many magical memories for me! :)

See more at ExplorersHotel.com!

Pluto in Real Life!

So my boyfriend says he wants a dog ... what kind of dog? Well this sent us on a wild ride through the internet to see what dog would be the best! It took a while, but I soon thought hey ... why don't we get a real life Pluto!? But what kind of dog is Pluto supposed to be? :)


The first time Pluto appeared in a Disney cartoon was way back in 1931! He stars alongside Mickey in "The Moose Hunt", check it out below!


In this cartoon, Pluto was thought to be a bloodhound - with features such as long droopy ears, a wrinkled face and the fact than he's sniffing around the ground a lot of the time!

However, 20 years later in the 1951 cartoon "R'Coon Dawg", Pluto is portrayed a little differently... 


In this short, Pluto is thought to be a Redbone Coonhound ... mainly because he's helping Mickey hunt a raccoon! The Redbone Coonhound is a breed of dog widely used for hunting bear, raccoon and cougar. Coonhounds are in the same group as the breed Bloodhound, but they have a lot less skin. You'll notice that Pluto's skin isn't nearly as droopy as a Bloodhounds, further confirming that Pluto is most likely a Redbone Coonhound!

So what does a Redbone Coonhound look like in real life?



How cute!? But what's cuter than a dog? ... That's right ... a puppy!!


Cuteness overload!! Waaaah! lol!

So there you have it :) When we can get a dog, we shall get a Redbone Coonhound and call in Pluto! :D

Happy Thursday everyone! :)

Disney Village Guide from 2004!

I've been rummaging! And look what I found!




No PanoraMagique! No Earl of Sandwich! No Starbucks! And No World of Disney!

The first thing I spotted was the Hurricanes Discotheque! This closed last year ... I was so annoyed! I didn't get the chance to experience the only Discotheque in Disneyland Paris! :(

I still love the village as a whole though :) One of my favourite things to do after the Parks close it hang around in Disney Village until the small hours of the morning :) It's an awesome way to make the magic last just a little bit longer :)

More Disneyland Paris stuff to come! :P

Happy Tuesday Everyone! :D
