Christmas at Walt Disney World – My Travel Bucket list

After Halloween, the Disney Parks transform into Christmas heaven and there’s a few things I’m rather excited for; Mickey’s Merry Christmas Party On selected evenings, Magic Kingdom plays host to Mickey’s Merry Christmas Party.

Welcome to New York #1

I’ve officially started my nine week trip across America and Canada. On Tuesday, I flew from Manchester Airport to New York JFK to embark on my crazy solo trip. I can’t believe I actually made it across the Atlantic and WITHOUT any tears! I arrived in New York late afternoon and got a taxi into Manhattan. I’m staying at The Jane Hotel in Greenwich Village which is such a cute little affordable hotel. The lobby is literally JUST like the Tower of Terror at Disney. The rooms are very cosy but overall, it’s an amazing price for New York. I’ll…

Hotel Cheyenne, Disneyland Paris

My annual pass to Disneyland Paris has now officially expired, sad times! I do, however, have so much Disneyland Paris content coming up. In the next couple of months, I’ll also be visiting Disneyland California and Walt Disney World! My last trip to Disneyland Paris was in May for the 25th Anniversary and it was actually the first time we booked to stay in a Disney resort using our Annual Pass. With our Annual Passes, we were able to ring up and book an amazing deal at the Hotel Cheyenne using the AP discount. I had actually previously stayed at…

Rachel’s USA Trip: My New Orleans, Memphis & Nashville Wishlist

I’m very lucky to be travelling to some incredible destinations on my trip to America and Canada. It’s now less than 50 days until I fly off to the states and I thought I would do another wish list styled post for my USA trip. My other post was about places I’d love to visit in Florida, check that out here. I’ve finally booked my flights out to New York which is my first stop before heading on the Southern BLT tour with Trek America. One of the main reasons for choosing this trek was that it included Nashville, Memphis…
