If you are subscribed to my YouTube channel (and please do if you haven’t already!), you may have seen all of my Disneyland Paris vlogs with my mum, my sister Alice, and her two friends Lauren and Rachel in February 2018. We had an amazing time, and sadly all of the vlogs have now been posted! Did you catch them all? Don’t fret because I’ve complied them all here so you can see all of the fun, food and magic from Disneyland Paris.
We travelled on the Eurostar from St Pancras in London and arrived in the train station at Disneyland Paris in the early afternoon. Then we caught the bus over to the Kyriad Hotel, checked in, and then went back for a great day of fun in the Disneyland Park! The next job was sorting out everyone’s annual passes, watched the amazing 25th anniversary parade, and even stayed for the fireworks, despite the cold.
Some people go every year, or every few months. Those who are lucky enough to live in Florida might even visit every week, while others may only dream of going to Walt Disney World once in their lives. Most families save and save to be able to fly to Florida, eat out every night, and buy park tickets, never thinking that they would want or need to do the same trip again. I’m from one of those families that got the bug very early on, and we went to Orlando every three years as I was growing up.
Now that I’m a proper adult with a full-time job, I could just about afford to go to my favourite place on the globe – Walt Disney World – every year. So why do I choose not to?
I have had some weird and wonderful Thursday evenings in London in my life, but none quite compare to the night out that Megabus UK treated me to a few weeks ago.
I’m sure you’ll recognise the iconic yellow and blue of their buses that guide travellers cheaply around the country. Back when I was a student in Sheffield, the Megabus was a lifesaver as it got me to London and back for a fraction of the price of a train, meaning I could easily go to watch shows, visit friends and do work experience.
I’ve also used Megabus abroad. My record is about 15 hours on a Megabus from Orlando to New Orleans. That was a day to remember! They’ve got me all across the USA and there is no doubt that I would not have been able to afford to fly to all those destinations.
Back in London on a chilly February evening, and I was reacquainted with these buses, but this time was quite different. Rather than travelling across the country, we were gallivanting across the city to solve a mystery.
Doing something different on holiday can be daunting, especially when you’re used to going back to the same place time and time again. This is particularly relevant for those who love Walt Disney World and Disney Parks around the world, but then go on their first Disney Cruise. You can go from knowing Magic Kingdom like the back of your hand, to being in a whole new world aboard one of Disney’s cruise ships: the Wonder, Magic, Dream or Fantasy. This shouldn’t be scary – it should be exciting! For those who love to plan, there is a lot to learn and get excited about before your trip.
Here are my top 10 tips to help you with your first trip on Disney Cruise Line. And it might even be helpful for those who have already been on a cruise. There is always more to learn!
