Disney has played a huge part in my life, from the vibrant colours and rich stories in the films and animation to the immersive atmosphere in the theme parks and resorts. There is something almost addictive about stepping foot into a reality that is separate from real life, and Disney does that for me.

  • A Disney Night In

    A cosy night in with Disney

    We were given a few Christmas inspired items from shopDisney to have a cosy family night in talking about Christmas. Which isn’t hard to start going with two excitable girls.

    Disney on Ice – Frozen

    We’ve been to several Disney on Ice productions over the years. I even decided to go and see a show with Catherine one year… before we even had kids! It’s no secret that the Hoopers are huge Disney fans, but at the same time, we are realistic. If we have a poor experience we wouldn’t […]

    Disneyland Paris Day 2

    I’m usually a bit funny the first night in a hotel and struggle to sleep.  The new layout, the noises, the different mattress and sheets all combine to create a sleepless night, but I had no problem last night. The fact I had been awake so early, trekked round the length of the Disney park […]
