Disneyland Paris 2016 // What I Bought

Looking back to my 2014 DLP blog posts, it seems that I left my 'What I Bought' post to the very end of my series of posts. That is not being replicated this time around. Obviously. I have so many photos to go through and posts to write as well as them being more spaced out than my 2014/15 ones were, and this was quite an easy way to ease into the editing process. Not only that but I wanted to get some of it put away/ put into use so this post has been completed since the end of December :)


So during my Countdown to Disney mini-series of posts before our trip, I wrote a little shopping list and I am very lucky, happy and everything in between to say I managed to get 99% of the stuff I had hoped for. 
A couple of points I have to note, though: Prices have vastly increased since 2014. Like, a lot. Things I'd bought last time for one price were on average €5 more! It was craziness. Secondly, the clothing lines were very disappointing. I guess it's just fashion in general right now but I usually love everything in the Disney Fashion store, but this time it was either weirdly cut, impractical stuff or really inappropriate (non-Disney!!!) stuff like Mickey grabbing his bits and Minnie flashing her pants on the front of crews. :O Lastly, Christmas merch takes over. There is a huge decrease in choice of normal merch lines which is a bit meh. Long story short those are the reasons I only got one item of clothing (well 2 with the hat) and no homeware really.
Phew, that was a long-winded ramble eh?


As you can see I got four pins, despite not being a pin collector haha. I always get a 'year' one and a hotel one for each visit but as it was in December all the year pins were gone for 2016 with 2017 replacing them already which is just weird to me, so I settled for the Eiffel tower spinner and obviously a Sequoia Lodge one for our hotel! The other two are the Walt Disney Studios park pin as we did the tour and I wanted something to remember it by and the famous Tommorrowland pin that I have wanted since like May 2015 ;)
The rest of it speaks for itself I think and I love it all.
Oh, the last image is of Baker's gifts by the way - a new blankey, baby Dory soft toy and a new Chip and Dale mat for his bowls that he got in 2014.
That's it, for now, guys! Feel free to have a peek at my Disneyland Paris 2014 // What I Bought post and catch up with the rest of my DLP 2016 posts so far by clicking here!

  1. Great buys! I love that frame. It's adorable! I'm actually quite shocked about the inappropriate disney clothes! You wouldn't think they would even sell items like that in such a family friendly place!

    1. Thank you :) I know right?! I couldn't believe it. They'd be pretty nice sweatshirts if it weren't for the poses. :/
