Disneyland: A To Do List

On Sunday, I am off to Disneyland Paris and if you didn't know that, you know now! When I was younger, we used to go as a family pretty much every year till I was about 14. I am so excited to be going back, especially as I am going with Phil and he has never been before, so it's going to be a really special trip. We're going for 5 days so we do want to do pretty much everything. However, here are a few things in particular:

1. Get that Iconic Photo in front of the Castle
I reckon this is top of everyone's list when they go to Disneyland, get that photo in front of the Castle. Having been to Florida and seeing pictures of the other Castles, this one has to be my favourite, plus it's pink! I love the walk up to it and the fact that the whole park leads to the Castle! I can't remember walking around inside either so it's definitely something I would like to do.

2. Go to the Rainforest Cafe 
I have many fond memories of eating here. I love the atmosphere, it is pretty much like a rainforest, with animals that move mechanically, and make noises, the massive elephants have to be my favourite. They have massive fish tanks in the entrance too, which are pretty epic. As well as noises every half an hour to an hour to make it sound like a storm in the Rainforest, a personal favourite of mine too. I had pretty much one request for when we are there and that is to go to the Rainforest Cafe on my birthday which Phil agreed to, isn't he a babe?! I have also managed to start a collection of stuffed animals, with a Giraffe from Marwell Zoo and a Lion from Longleat, that I have also decided to get an elephant to remember our visit to the Rainforest Cafe. My not so lame collection didn't happen intentionally!! So, if you didn't guess they have a huge shop there too which I am excited to explore.

3. Parades
To my knowledge, there are a lot of parades at the moment. They are truly magical and they are a must see. The most incredible floats and music blaring throughout the park, it is an experience like no other! Even if you just see it once, you'll be hooked.

4. Fireworks - Illuminations
I can't believe this only came in at number 4. All of these are an absolute priority but I can't number them all 1! Much like the parade but a must see on a greater scale. If you have to sleep all day to stay up to see this. It will be so worth it. Think of the most incredible fireworks you've ever seen, add magic, Disney music, Video Projection onto the Castle, times by 100 and you have Illuminations.

5. Shopping/Food
Oh my goodness, all of the shopping. We have already agreed that the first thing we are doing is heading to get some Mickey and Minnie ears. I may have seen that they have done amazing 25th Anniversary Glitter ones. So I am after those. Plus all the other shopping, but I think I will save my thoughts until my haul post.
The food isn't really anything special, except they do a lot of themed foods which I am excited for. There is one thing that is one of the best things ever and I can remember the smell so well, the popcorn. It is better than any other popcorn you will ever taste. Rumour has it that they've turned it blue for the 25th Anniversary.

6. Pin Trading
Now I don't want to trade in particular, but I do want to collect them. I know they do hotel exclusives so I will be picking up one of those and no doubt some 25th Anniversary exclusives.

I had a genius idea last week, that I wanted to get some personalised t-shirts made, perhaps with our favourite Disney quotes, or something for the memory of going. All about the memories over here. Printsome* do amazing quality t-shirts that can be printed with any design or logo you wish to promote your brand or perhaps a group trip coming up. Not only can you get t-shirts, but also hoodies, vests or tote bags. It is a much more cost effective way of doing it. I know next time I need something personalised, I will be heading to Printsome.

I am oh so damn excited for Disneyland on Sunday.
