Something about the months leading up to Christmas always makes me think of Disney. On cold winter days my mum would take me and my brother down to the video shop to rent some films. I always chose a Disney film and I have so many I love. We would settle in the living room, while my mum usually got on with some ironing, and enjoy watching our films.
If I had to choose a favourite it would be Beauty and the Beast. I would watch that over and over, a couple of times a day, and in the end I got my own copy to save my mum the trips to the video shop. I think Belle is bit more of a daring heroine; she saved the Beast in the end and created her own happy ever after. Oh, and she loved books!What more could a little girl ask for? I still have it in my Disney collection today and although Lucas shows more of an interest in Toy Story I still pop Beauty and the Beast on now and again.
I’ve been to Disneyland Paris over Christmas and it is pretty special. I love it as much as an adult as I did when I was a child. Al Fresco Holiday’s have holiday parks close to Disney Land Paris, with some great deals currently available for 2013 bookings. I can’t wait to visit Disney Land with Lucas but in the meantime I’ve been making a few sneaky visits to the Disney shop for Christmas presents, after all Father Christmas needs some help!
