Starting to pack for my last minute trip to Disneyland Paris! Just checked the weather forecast and lets just say I'm glad I brought some rain ponchos back with me from Florida! Very exciting to see the Christmas parade and New Years fireworks as this is the only time of year when you can see them. Also want to see the park and what is new for my birthday trip in March/ April.
Decided to have my nails themed for the occasion (photo below) but will definitely be dressed warm and comfortable for the 15 hour day. Very glad I have no baggage allowance as I'm looking forward to some much needed Disney merchandise shopping!
Just been surprised with a trip to Disneyland Paris for New Years Eve! Thats right, I get to watch the amazing New Years Eve fireworks outside Sleeping Beauty's castle in Disneyland Paris! My friend Ciara and I are off to a short trip to Paris first for a quick tour then off to Disney for the day on the 31st, so thats 15 hours to run free in the Disneyland Park and Walt Disney's Studios Park! Of course I've already started making a plan for the day as they'll be so much to fit in and theres special things planned for that specific day with it being New Years Eve!
May have to start packing soon as we leave in just 2 days but very excited to be in a Disney park again! My Mum just informed me that this will be the 3rd Disney Park I've been to this year (California in April, Florida in the Summer for 4 months and now Paris) so just Tokyo and Hong Kong to do soon!
Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas day! I spent the day with my Mum, Step dad and Nanna, we drank and eats lots, watched lots of Christmas films, played games and drank! My Mum has clearly been reading my blog as she got me most of the list I posted a while back. My main presents were my Alexander Wang Rocco bag, my Jeffrey Campbell studded Litas, along with alot of clothes! I also got an Alice in Wonderland tea set, a few Jim Shore Tradition Disney statues, a Tower of Terror/ Hollywood Hotel dressing gown & slippers and much much more! Completely spoilt rotten! I got my Mum a Jim Shore Traditions statue aswell that she wanted so we are well on our way to a big collection!
Been home around a week now and getting ready for Christmas! Spent 3 days at a spa with my friend Ciara which was lovely as it gave us some much needed time to relax! As soon as I go back I got ill and have been in bed since, probably just a normal cold/ flu but it feels like I'm on my deathbed. So have been spending my days working through Disney/ Pixar films to make me feel better!
My friends that are still on the college program keep posting photo's of the parks in all their christmas decorations and I want to go back so badly! So excited for my trip to Disneyland Paris in March/ April but has got me started thinking about trips for next year! Think I may be asking too much to go back to America next year, so thats definitely on the list for 2013. So I'm thinking some nice extended trips to Spain, Italy & France. Hopefully try and get some work out there so I can stay for a while longer, but I also have some weddings that I've been invited to in June and September so I have to be back for those! Only a few days left for some Christmas shopping, but head over to www.disneystore.co.uk for some last minute deals!
After careful consideration and thought I have decided not to go to Disney for the year long academic program. There a few reasons I have decided this, for one I don't think I could ever top my summer program! I made so many great friends and memories and I don't want to compare it. I am on an event management course and unfortunately Disney doesn't offer a placement in events, which I ultimately want to go into. I have found some other placements opportunities which I feel may benefit my career more but I still LOVE Disney!
Its my ultimate dream to work for Disneyland Paris one day, I'll have to revisit the French language! So hopefully in future I may be able to work on their events team! But until then I've been applying for some great events/ hospitality placements so hopefully I'll get them too!
