At the end of November and start of December, we took our first trip to Disneyland Paris. As complete novices, choosing a hotel cn be tricky. For us, the only option was to stay in a Disney hotel to ensure we had maximum magical effect. It can feel rather overwhelming but after much searching and chatting to people who had been, we decided to stay in Newport Bay in the Compass Club. The Compass Club gives you extra perks including: an extra hotel fast pass access to the drinks lounge a separate lounge area for afternoon snacks and breakfast special…

It looks set to be another corker of a production filled with so many much loved favourite Disney characters.

I decided to indulge myself when booking our trip to Disneyland Paris and we booked the Lunch/Dinner meal with the Princesses at Auberge De Cendrillon restaurant (ADC) when we booked our original holiday. I have always loved Disney Princesses and Cinderella was my absolute icon as a little girl. I had heard that the only way to meet the Princesses at DLP was to go to the Princess Pavillion where you queue up to meet just one. I have also seen that the queues can reach up to 3 hours and I knew no one would want to wait that long, so…
