A trip to the happiest place on earth.
It’s commercial and super cheesy but we didn’t stop smiling for 3 days, even with sore feet after walking for miles a day! The happiness is simply contagious!
Get in the spirit and make sure you dress up, mickey ears are almost compulsory! Plan your group outfits in advance for the best IG shots.
Let’s start with the food, which is the focus of all our family travels…
France is not the ideal place for veggie & gluten free eaters, let alone somewhere as commercial as Disney but we were pleasantly surprised, here are our favourites…
Head to the super stylish American theme diner for a great veggie burger with stacked roasted vegetables or save your calories for their super creamy shakes.
Agrabah cafe is a vegan heaven.
This eatery in Disney village actually does gluten free vegan pasta, and hold onto your Disney ears people… gluten free vegan PIZZA. I know right?!
No matter how good the food is, I would suggest taking snacks (especially water to avoid those pesky plastic bottles) – everything is eye-wateringly expensive!
You won’t believe how dedicated I was to get a selfie wth a Disney Character! Here’s my tried and tested guide to getting that all important photo!
What not to miss.
Not forgetting the details –
You will be shattered at the end of each day so finding somewhere close to rest your head is essential. There were 4 of us in our group so we booked a log cabin just outside the park in Davy Crockett Land. You still have the benefits of staying at a Disney hotel but with a little outdoor terrace, kitchen/diner lounge to chill out at the end of a long day. Unfortunately there is no shuttle bus so you do need a car to drive to the park. Be warned, the car park is then a 1 mile walk to the entrance.
Stay at a Disney hotel which gets you into the park 1.5 hr (the magic hour) before the gates open. It takes a while to walk to the rides so make sure you’re at the gate ready to go in. You also get fast passes to most of the busy rides which saves hours of queuing.
Most Importantly –
Sing along to your favourite Disney tunes blasting everywhere, eat candy floss and pull silly faces and let your inner child roam free!
