Those of you wondering, my skirt was specially made for me by my friend Rachael over at Pineapple Tree by Rae. She makes fabulous felt and sequin skirts that are the perfect accessory for any Disney park or cruise! Even pregnant I felt so fabulous in it which is why I had to take so many pictures!
As you can see, we started the morning with a photoshoot! We got into the park early with extra magic hours, so I took advantage of the bright sunny morning and lack of crowds to take some fun shots.
My ears are from Diamond and Wire and my watch bows are from Mouse on Main Street. Both shops are run by wonderful women that are SO easy to work with! I highly recommend both of them.
My diamond ears are actually double sided so they glitter and sparkle from all angles! They have several colors of diamonds to choose from as well as some FABULOUS bows. They also make wire ears hence the Diamond and Wire. If you want to look as extra as you really are, definitely find your way over there before your next Disney trip!
After pictures we decided to focus on little Chlo and ride her favorites. First up, Prince Charming’s Carousel!
I mean, just look at that cheese y’all!
A pit stop for a photo op before going to ride her other fave, Dumbo! I will say that Disneyland Paris has TONS of places to snap pictures which I absolutely loved.
Later we did a walk through of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle!
The tapestries that told the story of Sleeping Beauty were simply stunning! It was fun to walk through, but there were quite a few people. I would wait to go until later in the day instead of right around lunchtime when everyone is in the area!
It was definitely needed and we obviously look recharged and ready to take on the evening! Also these princesses needed a quick outfit chance to combat the afternoon/evening sun. It was no joke.
We promised Chloe that we would go to the park as soon as we got to Disney. There were actually two parks for little ones to play at which was amazing! She just wanted to run around and slide without having to wait in line, so we stayed there for a while. JP was able to go ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad while Chloe played.
Then it was back over to Fantasyland. We loved the Storybook boat ride as you can see by the over excited cheese that Chloe has going on. I mean, how could you not love riding through the actual Cave of Wonder?!
And of course the carousel one more time as the sun was setting!
I knew that I wanted to stay for fireworks at least one evening and this one was perfect. Since we got a nice mid afternoon nap, I thought we could make it up a bit later. We grabbed a spot off to the right of the castle about 30 minutes before showtime and it was worth the wait! Poor little Chlo was wiped and ended up falling asleep in her stroller just a few minutes before the fireworks and slept through the whole show.
Of course my awesome firework shots are videos, but these are just a few of the snaps I was able to get! The fireworks are definitely worth staying for. I wish that Chloe would have seen them because I know she would have loved them, but she was NOT interested waking up.
So like I said in the post title, Disneyland Paris is for twirly skirts and sparkly ears. It’s for feeling fabulous and a little extra. It’s for having a blast and living through the eyes of your child. It’s for enjoying every little bit yourself without a hint of guilt. It’s for living your best life, smiling and soaking up the most magical place on earth.
I hope some of these pictures brought a little more joy to your Wednesday! It certainly lifted mine!
