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.

    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
