Disneyland Paris – February 2019 – Days 4&5

Let’s talk about the last two days of my trip, which would have been Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th Feb…

We had seen on Facebook once we arrived Wednesday that Disney Fashion in the Village were going to be releasing a new line of Disneyland Paris Spirit Jerseys whilst we were there! How lucky were we.. we were convinced it was definitely fate ha! So we’d planned to head there first thing for when it opened at 9am on Saturday morning. I’d heard that the last time they came out in Paris, they were practically gone the same day, so we really didn’t wanna miss out. We decided we were going to give up our magic hour that morning, head into the Disneyland Park at 8am to get some more pics of the Castle whilst it’s quiet, and then head to Disney Fashion for 8.30am ready for it to open at 9am.

Disneyland Paris – February 2019 – Day 3

If you haven’t checked out my first post about this trip, go ahead and do that so you can catch up on days 1&2 first!

Day 3 – Disneyland Park & Character Breakfast

Friday started with a super early start to Disneyland Park…

*Pro Tip* – If Magic Hour starts at 8.30am, you can enter Disneyland Park at 8am to walk down Main Street and to the Castle. This is a fantastic time to get daytime pictures outside the castle with hardly any people in the background, or none at all if you’re lucky like us!

Christmas in Orlando – the Basics

Alright so let’s get started with the maybe not so exciting things, such as travel, accommodation, etc.

Length of visit

The first time we went to Orlando, December 2015, we went for exactly 2 weeks. The second time, December 2017, we decided to go for a little longer and we did 16 nights. I personally would love to go for 3 weeks, that would be my perfect trip… however with school holidays only being 2 weeks for most over Christmas, you may not be able to go for any longer.

For us, 3 weeks just hasn’t worked well with work, but we will definitely aim for 3 weeks at some point! Those extra 2 nights on our second trip were very nice, it doesn’t seem like much but that just meant we could space some of our hectic days out a little more, or just have a little more free time without cramming in too much.
