The Magic of Disney

The Magic of Disney

My gremlin is already obsessed with going to “Mickey Land”. This is her code for Disney land. As a family it is something we have planned for the future when the gremlin is about 6 and her sister (which still sounds so weird) is probably about 3. My Mum is already saving and has been since our last trip.

I love Disney and have been to the Florida resort twice and to Disneyland Paris twice. Our most recent trip was in 2011, where hubby proposed on Clearwater beach. We had gone with my Mum and step-Dad and just had the best holiday. I had wanted to go one more time before I had children, as knew then it would be a totally different kind of trip. We enjoyed all the theme parks, stayed in a fabulous villa, had some cracking BBQs and hung out late at night by the pool. Brilliant and definitely what was ordered pre-kids.

I loved the magic of Disney and could already start to see how fun coming to the Magic Kingdom could be with little ones, especially a girl, if she fell in love with princesses! Fast forward to now and I am expecting my second girl and already have one who is princess obsessed. I know they will love a holiday completely Disney themed.




What I have never considered however is a Disney-themed cruise. My Mum and step-Dad have cruised before and did have a fab time, visiting a variety of places and taking in the sites via boat. They met some great people, had lovely food and explored a lot of Europe.

IgluCruise offer trips on the Disney Cruise liners, which will bring a holiday with everything Disney from musicals, to character meets, to themed deck parties. Think lots of bright and vibrant entertainment for the children and you will be there. My gremlin loves meeting characters and now is much more confident with approaching and greeting them. Meeting Mickey on a daily basis would have her in seventh heavens of delight.

My hubby was so skeptical of the Disney moto at the time of our visit “Let the Memories Begin” but Disney does just have that magical lure and I think with children, the inner skeptic will melt!

What about you?

Do you have a bit of Disney love?

    I LOVE Disney! I think we must have about 90% of all the Disney films ever made on our shelves. I have never been to a Disney resort, though, and it is something I really, REALLY want to do! I also had a friend who used to work on the Disney cruise ship! #MarvMondays

    Visiting Disney is my dream holiday! Being one of 6, it was something that could never have happened as child, but I did go with a few of my siblings to Disney Paris when I was 17. Unfortunately, I was going through a stroppy phase and didn’t want to be there, so as much as I enjoyed the rides, I didn’t enjoy the magic as much as I’d like. I know Disney Florida will be a once in a lifetime holiday for us, so we are waiting until we’ve finished having babies and can take them all at an appropriate age but I may try and do Paris sometime in the next few years with Alfie #marvmondays

    I’m a Disney homer. I’ve been almost a dozen times to Florida and only had a kid with me once. I have lots of friends in FL and its easier to get a direct flight into Orlando than anywhere else, so I spend a few days there and then drive to wherever my true destination is.

    I love Disney too and we’re planning to take our little ones when they are probably a similar age – both old enough to appreciate and enjoy the magic of Disney! I’ve also been to the Florida park twice and Paris once and cant wait to go back with little ones! Thanks for sharing this on #MarvMondays. Emily
