Favourite Disney Rides - Haunted Mansion

Image
Continuing on with the theme of favourite rides, and I stress, these are in no particular order (as they are all favourites), I thought this week I would talk about the Haunted Mansion ride.  If you have been on the Haunted Mansion ride - a trip down memory lane awaits you below. Feel free to agree/disagree in comments.
Haunted Mansion
Location: Anaheim Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland, Magic Kingdom (Orlando)
This was my very first Disneyland ride and did not disappoint. Basically, the queue starts from the cemetery and the general wait time takes about 20 minutes. Once you reach the mansion, about 20 people are herded into a ‘room stretching’ elevator room (which really transports you via an elevator, below ground level to outside the park where the ride actually is. You do not feel any movement however). Unfortunately, 7 year old A.J at the time was petrified and didn’t know what was happening, especially with rooms ‘stretching’, the initial room area being dark and with hidden eleva…

Disneyland Paris- Trip Review

Image
This week we have a Guest Reviewer called Daniel from jungleskipper.com website who has kindly written a review for us on Disneyland Paris. Below he details his favourite rides, where he stayed, food options and queues.
We've just returned from Disneyland Paris a few days ago, staying for 3 nights/4 days in Sequoia Lodge, one of the 3 moderate hotels located on site. We had an amazing time, the Paris Disneyland park is truly the most beautiful out of all the Disney Parks I've visited.

Disneyland Park
Upon entering you are initially greeted by the Disneyland Hotel, a beautiful large building in a Victorian style, think Grand Floridian in WDW. It has a giant Mickey Mouse clock on the front and is fronted by fountains the beautiful streams. Passing underneath the hotel you reach the station and the traditional Main Street.


The castle at the end of Main Street is beautiful, styled on the original castle from Sleeping Beauty and surrounded by clipped hedging. Whereas the other Disney c…

Favourite Disney Rides - Tom Sawyer Island and Peter Pan

Continuing on with the theme of favourite rides, and I stress, these are in no particular order (as they are all favourites), I thought this week I would talk about Tom Sawyer Island and Peter Pan. If you have been on either of these rides/attractions, a trip down memory lane awaits you below. Feel free to agree/disagree in comments. 
Attraction: Tom Sawyer Island Location: Anaheim and Tokyo Disneyland 
Tom Sawyer Island is so much fun. Before I went to Anaheim in 2015, I had read about the island in guidebooks, but I really had no idea until I got there how much pure fun it was. If you have read the Tom Sawyer /Huckleberry Finn books, the details are amazing. Firstly, you travel to the island by raft (of course) and this is the only way to get on/off the island. You can get a free map when you are in Tokyo, detailing what to find on the island, but there is everything from Injun Jones caves with pirates treasures, other caves to get lost in (yes, we lost DH in some caves), a Fort St Cle…
