I’m back! I took a week off from posting whilst I was in Disneyland Paris but I am back and I have so much to share. If you don’t already follow me on Instagram then be sure to head over and have a look at my profile. I share life and all things Disney and the past week my profile has been full of Disneyland Paris photos!
Whilst I was in Disney I of course made a few purchases. I spent a lot less on food than I thought I would which meant I did come back with quite a few pieces of merchandise so be prepared for a rather long post. I am so happy with everything I bought and I’ve been so excited to share them with you all!
One of the things I spent a little bit too much money on was Disney Pins. I have always loved the Disney Pins and I already have a little collection going. I knew before I went that I wanted to add to my collection which I certainly did! The pins were bought from a variety of different shops as they are often repeated from shop to shop. I would recommend looking wherever you can if you like pins as some shops do tend to have 1 or 2 that aren’t in the others.
I picked up a pin lanyard from the Disney Store in the Disney Village which cost €9.99. The prices of the lanyards varied and not all of them came with the clear zip wallet attached to the bottom. I picked up this particular lanyard because I loved the design and knew I would mainly be wearing it to store my park ticket and fast passes.
I bought an autograph book and matching pen. The autograph book cost €9.99 and the pen cost around €6. I used to have an autograph book almost identical to this one when I visited previously and I love the design so I decided to go for the same one. It is also one of the cheaper ones available. I wouldn’t recommend the matching pen. As you can probably see from the photos the ink ended up going all over the end of the pen. For €6 I expected better quality.
I didn’t buy a lot of the anniversary merchandise but some of the pieces I did buy include two tsums tsums. I loved the whole collection of the anniversary tsums tsums but I managed to resist them all and just buy Mickey and Minnie. They are so cute in their little outfits with their accessories. I do feel like the tsums tsums are quite expensive in the parks. In the UK they typically cost £3 but in the parks they cost €5.99 each. For that reason the anniversary ones are the only ones I purchased during the trip.
The other pieces of anniversary specific merchandise I bought is the anniversary Sorcerer Mickey. Some of the shops had an offer that if you spent €30 then you could buy Sorcerer Mickey for €9.99 instead of €19.99, which of course I couldn’t resist. He is so cute and is such a lovely size. I am really happy I decided to buy him. The shops that I noticed had the offers where the World of Disney, Disney Village and the Emporium on Main Street USA, Disneyland Park.
I bought one other plush as well as the Sorcerer Mickey. I bought the cutest Eeyore plush you have ever seen! I absolutely love him. He is so soft and fluffy. He is extremely squishy and is so cute. He is possibly my favourite purchase of the trip if I could possibly pick a favourite. They also had Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and Piglet in a similar style, all €24.99 each.
Anyone who knows me, knows it was unlikely I would come back from Disney without a top of some description. They had so many different ones that it was really hard to pick which one I wanted. I looked round Disney Fashion in Disney Village and bought a top from the designer … I am really pleased that I decided to buy this top as the design feels very ‘me’. The rest of the pieces in the collection were very expensive around the €100 mark, so I was even more pleased when the top only cost around €35! I wore the top whilst in Disney so it is currently in the wash. Instead I’ve included a photo I took of it in the shop.
From Main Street Motors in Disneyland Parc I made two purchases. The first is a large coin purse which cost €12.99. I debated getting the top in the same design but I am pleased I didn’t as now I still have a top but also something with the Mary Poppins design so I got the best of both worlds. The quality is lovely so I can see me using this for along time.
I also bought a bag from Main Street Motors. They had a few cross body style bags that I hadn’t see in other places so if you are on the look out for a bag, it might be worth a visit. The bag I eventually decided on cost €29.99 which seemed to be a similar price to other bags of the same size. The quality is lovely and I really like the overall design. I like that it is Disney but not too in-your-face Disney. The strap is adjustable and it has pockets inside.
I collect the ‘you are here’ mugs from Starbucks so I popped into Starbucks in the Disney Village on our way back one night and picked up the Paris mug. I am a little disappointed that they don’t have a park specific one like in Walt Disney World, but hopefully they will bring them back in the future. I thought that the mug was reasonably priced at €11.90.
I made a few smaller purchases in Disneyland Paris including a pen. I couldn’t go to Disney and not get one of these pens despite being slightly expensive at €5.99. I decided to go for classic Mickey. The pens are available in most shops across the parks.
I bought two of the anniversary coins, each €2.
I also bought one of the tsums tsums keyrings. I of course bought the Winnie the Pooh one because he was too cute to resist! He cost around €6.
My last purchase was from the Lego Store in the Disney Village. They had both a Belle and Beast Lego but I preferred the Beast so I decided just to get the one. They are quite resonably priced at €9.99. The Beast looks super cute and I had great fun building him! I have included a few before, during and after photos.
