Forever Jootsies – The hand painted Joot bag company (review)

About a month ago, I received a beautifully hand painted Chip and Dale bag to review. I knew exactly where and when to review it, as we had a trip to Disneyland Paris planned. This was to be my 20th trip, and my Grandaugher Chip’s 5th trip. We have had some very special interaction from […]

Better to be early than late though, and Chip played really nicely, and made new […]


Annette’s Diner

Annette’s diner is in the Disney Village and is an American Diner. If you are lucky, you might be served by waiters on roller skates. We are here using plus standard half board vouchers and found the food to be of good quality and large portions. I must say the service was really quite slow, […]
