Time for another pair of Disneyland Paris vlogs! We are already on to day three of the five-day trip, so it’s going along quickly. In day three, we wait for hours to meet Minnie Mouse in her special 25th anniversary outfit. Was it worth it? Just about!
We also went on some rides, did more character hunting, and saw the new castle stage show. This one features all the main characters, as well as some more rare ones. The highlights are definitely the enthusiastic dancers with their crazy hats to represent the different lands in the park. It is too much fun.
This was followed by a few more rides, and Daisy Duck popped up randomly, accompanied by Sleeping Beauty and her prince. It was really fun to meet them so unexpectedly without having to wait in line for very long. The secret characters come out of a few doors throughout the park, and we found them near the Casey Jr train ride. Unless you knew to look down there, you definitely wouldn’t happen upon them so it’s a good tip to remember.
In the afternoon, we went on one of my favourite rides – Big Thunder Mountain. Another character highlight was meeting a very intimidating Darth Vader, who I had never met before.
We had a chilled evening going on the rides in Fantasyland, then had a great moment watching the Princess show in front of the castle while munching on Disney popcorn. Yum! Next, we headed to the New York hotel for some cocktails before heading back to the hotel after another hugely successful – and very tiring – day.
As you may know, as I haven’t shut up about it for months, I went to Walt Disney World in late October 2016 for two weeks. As I only tend to go every couple of years, I love to take my pick of the best merchandise that they have to offer and splash some hard-earned cash.
This year, I was really tempted by the home wear and disappointed by the plush selection. I ended up with a fair bit of both, though! My most expensive purchase was a Walt Disney World jumper. I picked it up as we were heading out of Magic Kingdom for the last time to head to the airport, and I don’t regret it in the slightest so far. My two favourite buys are also clothes – an Edna Mode t-shirt with a fab quote on, and a huge oversized Cinderella nighty.
If you’re going to Disney World soon, I hope this gives you some inspiration. If you have any questions about prices or the type of merch that we saw, let me know in the comments.
For Disney fans, I have lots of other content planned including vlogs from everyday, highlights posts and more.
UPDATED 2018: I love watching these Disney vloggers and YouTubers whenever I can’t be at the place where magic lives. One of the main problems with loving Disney World is that you can’t be there all day, everyday. So during those depressing times when you’re not in Orlando, why not live vicariously through others? Lots of other people have filmed their whole Walt Disney World holiday experience and uploaded it for the world to see. Not only do you get to live their vacation alongside them, but it’s also a great source of inspiration for your next trip. From amazing new restaurants, to hints and tips, they have a lot of knowledge to share.
If you’re dreaming of your next holiday, get into the spirit with these nine vloggers. Let me know if your favourite isn’t on my list – I’ll probably dedicate the next week of my life to catching up on all their vlogs!
UPDATE: Since writing this list, I decided to vlog my own Disney World trip! I’ve started uploading my vlogs on my own channel, so be sure to take a look. I went to Florida in 2016, and I’ve now got an annual pass at Disneyland Paris. Here’s day one of my Orlando trip:
And I’ve just come back from an amazing Disney Cruise! If you’d like to see more Disney World, Disneyland Paris, and Disney Cruise Line content, click here to subscribe to my YouTube channel. I have lots of Disney trips planned this year!
