What keeps me going back to Disneyland Paris!

Welcome to those of you joining me from The Disney Point and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail!

This month's topic is 'What keeps you coming back to Disney?'

I'm desperate to head back to Disneyland Paris to see the new night time show Disney Dreams! There are plenty of videos online but I've tried my best to avoid them because I'd rather see it in real life!

Another thing that keeps me going back is the shopping! You just can't get as cool Disney merchandise anywhere else! I can't tell you how excited I was when they launched the Parks Collection on the UK Disney Store website last year, it doesn't have every single item from the park, but it means I can buy Park merchandise in between visits :) I got a whole bunch of kitchen things for Christmas presents last year, like this oven mitt for my dad :)

My final reason is a bit of a cliché but it's true! It's all about nostalgia and making new memories for me :) I love going back and reliving the Disney holidays with my family from my childhood, and I've taken my bf twice in the last couple of years to make new memories with him! I haven't been with my family in around seven years, I'd go back with them at the drop of a hat! It's the only place we go where we spend the whole time all together and I love seeing my mum and dad turn into the big kids that they are :)

Here I am the last time I was there ... August 2010 :) This was on my last night - it's not very clear but you can see my sad face lol! I usually try to go every couple of years and was aiming to visit last year but life got in the way! :P I'd love to go this year but only time will tell :) One thing is for sure, there is always a reason to go back to Disneyland Paris :)

Thank you for joining me today! Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Mommy Mouseketeer!

Here is the map of our Magical Blogorail should you happen to have to make a stop along the way and want to reboard:

I always go back for the shopping too :) I get jealous when someone has new merchandise I've never seen.
Nice post!

I always think - if I go to Paris, I won't waste a day at DLP.. but then I see that castle and think I might change my mind - it's SO amazing! Hope you get back soon!
