Disney Dreams

Disney anniversary train

I have always been a big Disney fan, so there is nothing that makes me happier than going to Paris with my boys to hug a giant mouse. To end the summer holidays we headed over to the Magic Kingdom who had extended their 20th anniversary celebrations until the end of this month. I wont lie, Disneyland with 3 small children is a lot of work. There is a lot of walking, over excitement and tiredness, but it is absolutely worth it.

For a start we finally managed to get Donald Duck's autograph! (This duck has been avoiding me for a long time!)

And I managed to get my pic with Buzz. Little man thought he would see if his buttons worked!

Big man was extremely brave and went on the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror with Daddy. It was considerably more scary than both of them were expecting and he has made it clear that he will not be going on it again until he is 10!

We found out that little man has a thing for Minnie. He was over the moon to see her and even attempted to shop lift his own soft toy of her! I was totally confused about the man at the entrance smiling and commenting on little mans soft toy, mainly because in my mind he didn't have one!

I was flattered when Goofy flirted with me! For a dog that cant talk he was very insistent that I joined in a photo with him.


Middle man loved Buffalo Bills meal and show and wore his cowboy hat at any opportunity.

As part of the anniversary celebrations, at park closing, they projected a show onto the castle. My photos do not do it justice. I was absolutely blown away by it, as was big man. We ended up going back to see it on our last night too!

They say that Disney is magical, and there is no doubt that our break was filled with magic moments.

  1. How amazing...looks like you all had the most fantastic time x

  2. I love Disney too - I'm very jealous as I haven't been for years and would love to take my Disney mad 5 year old. Lovely post (popping over from #what's the story)

  3. Looks like they had a great time. We are plotting a trip to Disney in the next few years.

  4. Wow what a fabulous post, looks like you had the most incredible time! I went to Disney on a work jolly a year or so ago, with a broken wing, and the Tower of Terror looked terrifying! Very brave of Big Man to go on it. It must have been amazing to see a show on the castle, that's pretty special at night time. Thank you for sharing with #whatsthestory

  5. Wow! Looks like you had an amazing time!

  7. Looks like a really amazing trip. I'd love to go one day. Maybe next year when Z is a bit older. He adores Mickey Mouse and I think he'd love the atmosphere!

  8. Thanks everyone - it was lovely - cant believe the change of weather in a week!

  9. Looks like a wonderful family trip. Every photo a smiling face. Popping over from MAgic Moments and hoping you will join me for Country Kids too. Plenty of Disney outdoor fun going down here.

  10. That looks so magical and so much fun, LOL at the shoplifting incident - my daughter used to do that to me ALL the time!
    Must get my lot there before they get too old! xx

  11. Love this! I've always wanted to go to DisneyLand, either one will do!!! Need to save our pennies and take my little ones before they are too old! Love the pictures, especially the last one all tucked up in bed with donald duck and mickey mouse. So so sweet xx
