Doing Disney With A Toddler In Tow!!

Last September, after much deliberation and sums we booked to go Disneyland Paris in January. Last minute as ever we finally booked on the last day of their special offer, within hours of the cut off!! With only a few months until the holiday, Christmas in-between and a toddler in tow we decided that planning and organisation were key to saving us a few quid and making it as stress free as possible!

So I'm going to share with you what we did each day, how our trip went and how being prepared made our trip to Disneyland Paris easy, even with a toddler on his first trip abroad!

Bluebell Diary

As part of me blogging more I'm going to be including a review each month of a local place or business, which is good (or not) for a family day out. Places that are created with kids and families in mind.

So, here's my first review and its for one of our favourite places................


Cost: Free of charge BUT donations can be given to help with costs.

We first visited Bluebell Dairy in November last year and have probably been another three or four times since. One trip included our first time seeing Santa with Joseph!

What is it and what's there?

Bluebell Diary is a working and active dairy farm with the addition of a tea room, education room (where you can also have parties) and a variety of animals to see and feed.

It's never to early to mention the C word!

I acknowledge its July and that most of you will want to punch me in the face when you read this BUT we are now half way through the year and that time is fast approaching. Yes, I mean Christmas!!! Once the children return to school we are on the cost ridden slide down to the 25th December!

Does it still seem ages away? Well, what if I said Christmas is now only twenty-four weeks away! Doesn't sound long does it. For many it is only five more pay days away! If you gasped a little like I did when I worked it out don't worry we've got this covered. Let's get things in order now to avoid stress come December. As everyone else dashes round in a mad panic you can sit and relax, sip hot chocolate in your onesie and watch Elf for the forty-seventh time.
