I’m a disney fanatic. Always have been, but the past few years I’ve taken it up a notch. When I was younger I never went to any Disney parks, I was one of those kids who didn’t actually know they existed. Probably for the best because I definitely would have annoyed my parents to go every week. I went for my first time in 2010 with college and I was hooked.

Chris and I’s first time to Disneyland Paris was back in December 2014 and since then we’ve been every December, to Disneyland Anaheim on our America travels and most recently have got ourselves Annual Passes. With the promise of many more DLP trips, I had to get us some custom ears.

I’d had my eye on Le Manoir de Beaumarchais for a while now, after spotting it as a hotel close to Disneyland. When Chris decided last minute that we were going on a eurotrip, I agreed, but only if we stayed here. I’m quite clearly easily pleased. After a day at Disney, imagine driving up to this view! It’s literally a castle. I felt like I was in my very own Disney fairytale.

We’d only just pulled up when a lovely lady came outside and greeted us, showed us in and showed us up to our room. She only knew a little English, so bear that in mind if you were to stay here, but we worked around it and it only took us a couple of minutes to get checked and it was pretty simple.

I’m one for overpacking, I’m not even going to deny it. My mum was always one of those “better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it” mums. I think I may live like that in everyday life too ?. Even when I pack for a one night stay I’ve usually got at least 3 outfits ‘just incase‘.

The same goes for my makeup. But, what if I need it. As we’re planning to travel more this year I only need a set few things. You don’t need everything Helen. You can do without that 3rd eyeshadow pallette (an actual conversation I had with my husband). I’m trying to limit myself.

Our America Vlogs are all live on YouTube! I’ve finally got around to editing our final vlog from our America Road Trip last year. Don’t shout at me, technology is to blame, promise.

We had the most amazing month, and I’d do it all again in a heartbeat. We’re currently, literally as I write this, seeing if we could go back and do another road trip. It is more likely to be Orlando and that sort of are but knowing Chris another could happen!
