Happy 85th Birthday Donald! You've had many adventures since you were born in the cartoon 'The Wise Little Hen'. You've seen many moments in history including playing a part in the propaganda films of WWII. You also played your part in sending a good will message to South America through 'The Three Cabelleros' which premiered in Mexico in 1944. The film involved you opening Birthday gifts from your Latin American friends. #happybirthday #donaldduck #threecaballeros #disneyblogger #disneyblog #addedpixiedustpic
It's been a lovely afternoon for a wander- here are just a few out of the 80 Disney and DreamWorks scarecrows at Market Bosworth Scarecrow Festival in Leicestershire, running until Wednesday. #marketbosworth #marketbosworthscarecrowtrail #scarecrow #disney #disneyblogger #disneyblog #addedpixiedustpic
I bought this beautifully illustrated book of European folk tales with a Disney twist a few years ago from a market in France. I am about to head out in the sunshine to vote in European Union elections. Whatever the future holds I firmly believe we belong to one world and we need to work together for peace and the future of our planet. #hopenothate #vote #eu #europe #disneyblogger #disneyblog #addedpixiedustpic
Walt was definitely on my mind yesterday! Visiting the Statfold Barn Railway in Staffordshire where a steam train took us visitors to a vintage fair. I found these pretty vintage Disney pins at the fair. The railway is beautiful and the collection of trains is something which I think Walt Disney would have loved. #statfoldbarnrailway #statfoldbarn #steamtrain #waltdisney #disney #vintage #disneypins #disneyblogger #disneyblog #addedpixiedustpic
My latest Disney addition, £3 from a vintage shop. Love the tiny characters around the base, chip is minute! #disney #belle #beautyandthebeast #snowglobe #disneysnowglobe #secondhand #disneyblogger #disneyblog #addedpixiedustpic
I've been fishing for mermaids in the tuppany falls. I caught two! All the joys of the arcade after our visit to the Alton Towers Water Park. #littlemermaid #pennyfalls #ariel #disney #addedpixiedustpic
Happy Mother's Day to all those amazing women out there caring for others. Caring is an emotional business, this is a photograph of a print I have in my dining room which always reminds me of that. #happymothersday #dumbo #disneyblogger #disneyblog #addedpixiedustpic
My son was very pleased to see his picture of Stitch in this month's Disney Art magazine. Blogging can occasionally lead to some interesting opportunities and in this case the newly relaunched magazine invited children to draw a picture of their favourite character. This month's magazine contains a range of fun activities including crafts which actually look achievable! My son has chosen that his priorities are to decorate eggs as Donald and Daisy and learn to draw the Aliens from Toy Story! As well as the paint set and stickers this month's magazine includes a set of Dumbo Panini stickers which he couldn't wait to open!#disneyartmagazine #disney #stitch #disneyblog #disneyblogger #addedpixiedustpic
Tonight we went to see Dumbo. I was really managing my expectations after reading The Guardian 1 star review earlier in the week and I was hoping the kids wouldn't be bored. As it was we had a really enjoyable evening. The original film was quite short and so the story is expanded to include a new second half set in a amazing fantastical theme park. It is quite different throughout but necessarily so, with human companions for Dumbo. There was a bit if a lull in the middle but there was just enough to keep us entertained and visually I thought the film was very attractive, set in 1919 and definitely fitting into 'The Greatest Showman' style. The kids gave it 4/5 and said it was good, sad and scary, they thought it was not for kids under 7 and it certainly has some of Tim Burton's dark style. I'm not sure we will be rushing to watch it again but it was certainly an entertaining evening. #dumbo #disney #odeon #timburton #disneyblogger #disneyblog #addedpixiedustpic
Red Nose Day 2019. As I'm at home today I haven't got much chance to show off my lovely #comicrelief t-shirt so I thought I'd share it here! The kids have non-uniform day which always goes down well! #rednoseday2019 #disney #mickey #bambi #disneyblogger #disneyblog #parentblogger #parentblog
Rocking Saturday watching 'Disney's Broadway Hits' in the Royal Albert Hall. I got a late ticket in the very cheap seats which were released to the side of the orchestra. The kids didn't want to come so it's just me but I'm loving it! BBC concert orchestra and four very talented singers from Disney musicals including Sean Escoffery from the Lion King who we met last summer at the Covent Garden musicals pop up. Although I'm seeing more of their backs the view of the orchestra is fantastic and the music is wonderful. #royalalberthall #disneysbroadwayhits #disney #disneyblogger #disneyblog #addedpixiedustpic
Presenting team princess! Absolutely loved Pirates and Princesses: Make your choice again this week. The sunshine certainly helped make this colourful parade. So much to see it is worth watching from different places to catch it all. #piratesandprincesses #disneylandparis #minnie #jakeandtheneverlandpirates #peterpan #captainhook #wendy #addedpixiedustpic #disneyblogger #disneyblog
