  • Disneyland new FASTPASS options

    Like every year in November, we go to Disneyland Paris with the children. Normally we are there on the weekend that the Park makes the switch from Halloween to Christmas. Tip; because then it's a lot less crowded. Now we were in the Halloween sphere, loved it. When it's very busy at Disney, it's always nice to be able to use a FASTPASS. In my blog about Disneyland Paris last year, you can read about the possibility to book a more luxurious room where extra FastPasses are included. The use of a FASTPASS is ideal, in this way you shorten the waiting ...

  • Disneyland Paris Christmas Style

    The 2nd weekend of November I went to Disneyland Paris with my family. Our youngest is intensely sad everytime we go home. The exciting rollercoasters, falling elevator and meeting his hero Spiderman, is a magical experience for him. Our oldest will not get enough of the Space Mountain, Rock'n Roller Coaster and Indiana Jones roller coasters. Every year we go to Disney twice, in February for 1 to 2 days to Disney World Orlando and in November 3 days to Disneyland Paris. The warmth in Orlando Florida is blissful and makes everything even more fun, but Disney is enchantingly beautiful ...

    About time for a new blog post! After my 2 weeks in sunlit Florida with my family, I've a lot of catching up to do on my blog. I got a few questions about what I take with me in my carry-on on such a long flight. I don't take with me that much (not counting the baggage of my husband and children, lots of candy I can tell you that). Besides my carry-on I also take with me my handbag. So that's two pieces of hand luggage and that's not allowed with every airline. Check in advance the website of ...
