Disneyland Paris 2014 // What I Bought.

Ahh, it's with two minds that I bring you this 'haul' post of the purchases I made at Disneyland, last year. This seals the deal as the actual, very last last post of them all! Obviously, as I've said a gazillion times, the trip itself was paid for by my Mam and Dad as a joint Birthday and Christmas present, Dad gave me some spending money and Jake gave me chunk too, as well as having my little 'piggy bank' savings - so thank you to my favorite people for all of this.






Before I went I put together a post of things that I wanted so I didn't waste money on things I didn't really need, therefore I was slightly gutted to find that the three main things I was after didn't exist anymore/they didn't stock.
I think the thing I actually wanted the very most and wouldn't of been bothered if I couldn't of gotten anything else just to get it, was my engraved necklace. I'm not a huge jewelry wearer apart from special pieces and my favorite necklace ever is my Mickey Mouse head that has my name and Minnie on one side and Disneyland 2010 on the other. I SO wanted to get another with 2014 on, you know, 'cause it'd be cool, but the staff had no idea what I was on about even when I showed them mine!
I'd seen official Disney Parks charms online too and was silly enough to think they'd have them outside of the US...they did have a one with a Mickey head and initials on though so I got that instead.
A limited edition soft toy (just like my Steamboat Willy Mickey that I also got in DLP in 2010) was another thing I couldn't tick off the list hence getting my two smaller soft toys - the Peter Pan Mickey to go with my Tinkerbell Minnie and something that classed as my 'something Halloween', Jack Skellington Mickey which is pretty awesome!

If you've paid attention to my ramblings on our trip then you'll wonder why I also have a pin for the Disneyland hotel, and that's because I stayed there in 2010 and forgot to pick it up then. Now I have a pin for the 3 Disney hotels I've been in in 2010 & 2014.






Two things that I decided not to bother with was some Ears and an Autograph book because they both were just too expensive for what they were. Last time I was there I bought multiples of both. I went completely all out on that holiday and I had way more money back then  but this time I could swear they were a lot more expensive. Ears are something thats a fun memento and a cool thing to have at the parks but nothing practical that you'd use at home a lot, though I am still in two minds about having not gotten an autograph book after having met so many characters that I hadn't already...

Anyways, with the stuff I didn't get I had extra money to get things I spotted and hadn't planned on getting! The two tops were from the Disney fashion store and we looked at them on a few separate occasions before Mam said, 'Just get them!' and I'm glad I did. The hoodie was bought on my second to last day and was pretty much the last of my money. I had been looking for a hoodie but wanted a black one and none really stood out until I finally found this sneaky one in a boutique on Main Street that wasn't anywhere else! I love it.

My favorite purchases of all are my Chip and Dale ear muffs that have been so practical they've been worn pretty much everyday for the past 2.5 months seeing as I don't wear hats and of course I love the stuff I got Baker. People will think I'm mad having bought a soft toy for him as they aren't exactly cheap dog toys, but he adores his Timon and hasn't broken it thankfully.

The last photo you see is gifts for others. I got Jake a mug because he drinks so much tea and this had a 'J' for Jack though I'll pretend its for Jake and some sweets. The shortbread biscuits and Chip and Dale tree decoration was for my scottish friend Claire and I actually still have the keyrings.
So there we have it, the complete and bitter end of all of this series. So sad! haha.

  2. I went to Disneyland Paris in 2002, it's fab isn't it? Disney is my fave place ever, I'm desperate to go back to Florida. It's a shame you couldn't get some of the things you wanted, but you still got some pretty amazing things, I think I love everything you bought.

  7. Some awesome stuff! I started collecting the Disney pins last year (I think)... They have some lovely ones! I'd love to buy some actually from Disney, maybe one day though! I was about 8 or 9 when I went to Disney and we were allowed one soft toy keep sake each and a autograph book. I still have my Donald Duck somewhere. I'd love to go back as an adult and be a little more frivolous. :D

    1. Oh did you?? I'd love to see what ones you have! I'd collect them all if I could but it'd get so expensive so I'm limiting myself to the hotel and year ones haha.
      And I went for my 6th birthday and got the same! haha One soft toy, an autograph book and I had a Daisy Duck cap!
      You really do need to go - it's amazingly wheelchair accessible too, the staff are amazing!

  8. I love the Disney clothes and the Christmas ornament! I don't own nearly as many disney plushies as I would like to and I really wish I'd bought more last time I went to Disney! The Chip n Dale earmuffs are the cutest things I've ever seen! Good choices all round :D
