Day 4 at Disneyland Paris had some of my favourite moments of the whole trip! One of the things I love most about the Disney Parks in France is how spontaneous the character meet and greets can be. While we were hanging around in the front lot, doing a bit of shopping and taking photos, three of my dream characters walked out. Mary Poppins, Bert, and a penguin all appeared by the entrance of Disney Studios. It was so exciting! Watch the vlog to see what happened.
In the evening, we had a great time running between the parks. We got to go on Crush’s Coaster for the first time, which was probably my favourite ride in the whole of Disneyland – and easily in my top five in the world. It was so smooth and huge fun.
Sadly, this was our last night of the holiday so we rushed over to the main park to snack on popcorn and weave our way through the crowds to find a spot for Illuminations. As we were late, we were further back from the castle and I actually preferred standing here. No people shouting at other people to sit down or move, and I could see more of the fireworks as well. Some were lost behind the castle when we sat right at the front, so I preferred being able to see the full show at all times.
Our feet were dead by the end of this mammoth day, but we made it back to the hotel and completely crashed into bed. Still one more day to go!
I’m not a Disney snob, but I have never had the highest opinion of Disney on Ice. For some reason I’ve never been to see it, and I have always had the perception that Disney-related shows and events in the UK can never match up to my beloved Disney World in Florida. I still stand by that, but Disney on Ice has definitely started to change my mind.
I bought tickets for me and my sister for her birthday and, a few months later, off we went to see it in Birmingham at the NEC. We immediately put our custom Minnie Mouse ears on, and since there’s nowhere else in the UK where it’s almost normal to wear them, it felt pretty special.
Besides, it’s not like you get to see Mickey Mouse in ice skates every day!
Watch the vlog of the day to see what we thought. I’ve included a lot of clips from the show, too, so you can decide if you want to go and watch during their next tour.
Here we are. The end is nigh. It’s been a great trip, hasn’t it? I’ve loved being able to look back on these amazing memories every week. I was really happy with how all of the videos turned out since it was my first time vlogging a full two-week holiday. Filming all the memories came surprisingly easy, too. After a few days of getting into the swing of it, I found that my camera rarely left my hand and I didn’t need to think too much about what I was going to record next.
Will I vlog future trips? Without a shadow of a doubt, yes. There is so much more to see in videos that in still photos alone. I know that I will look back and watch these vlogs so many times in future, far more often than I would get out a photo album, so it was completely worth it.
I was always very conscious of enjoying the moment as well as recording it. I never sacrificed my view or enjoyment at the time to capture a better shot. Hence why there’s a fair bit of shaky footage every now and then from when I was dancing or caught in the moment. If I sacrificed that, then I would be sacrificing some of the fun as well and I definitely didn’t want to do that.
Time to stop being sentimental and get on with the last day. I hope you’ve enjoyed this series.
If you have, then I’ve got good news. I’m off to Disneyland Paris in April 2017 and I will be getting out my vlogging camera once again. Be sure to subscribe to my channel to be notified when those videos pop up. Plus, there is more to come later this year as well.
See you real soon!
I have enjoyed getting to know ‘my’ London so much over the last two years. As much as I love the lights and buzz of Leicester Square and Covent Garden, there are other parts of the city that make this new Londoner feel a lot more at home. Here is my run down of my favourite slightly lesser-known parts of the city, as well as the ones that I want to explore more.
Even though I live here, there is so much to see and do, so why not try something different next time you’re in the capital?
You may have seen Disney vloggers or bloggers getting to do some very cool things at Walt Disney World, and it’s easy to assume that they’ve been singled out, picked for a special experience, or even paid more to do something. That may be the case sometimes, but often they know the insider secrets that will make their experience that bit more magical.
No longer will you feel left out of this club of Disney fanatics, because I’m going to share my top tips and tricks for getting more out of Disney than just the rides. After all, you’ve paid for your park tickets, flights and hotel so you deserve to get the most out of your holiday.
Here are ten things that I think you should know before flying off to Florida. Hopefully they’ll help you to get a bit of extra magic out of your trip.
