Disneyland Paris is amazing! We have a very excited 8 year-old staying with us in Sequoia Lodge for the next three days.

The trip in on the Eurostar was flawless. It’s far less stressful than travelling in by plane, checkin is easier and there’s no waiting around for ages for your bags. We paid for the option of dropping our bags off at the station when we arrived too, so it was taken to our hotel while we went straight into the park.


Feet are tired now, but we have had a fantastic day, topped off by the Illumination fireworks and light show. This is on a smaller scale than the one in Orlando, but still great.

Let It Go

Ruby is utterly obsessed with ‘Let It Go’ from Frozen. To be honest, so am I (just a little bit). I think it’s one of the finest, catchiest songs to come out in many a year.

This amazing video has been doing the rounds for a while, but it’s worth a watch. Brian Hull does an fantastic job using the various Disney/Pixar voices throughout.
