      Oh that sounds like a wonderful treat for you Jenny! Yes we did thank you! I’m sure you’ll love the experience! 🙂

    Ah this brought back such lovely memories! The last time we went to DisneyWorld was 8 years ago. Our favourite was Epcot and Animal Kingdom although the fireworks/night show at Hollywood Studios was pretty high on our list too. Looks like you all had a fantastic time. Well done a great and informative post, Ella!

      Thank you Suzanne! Wow 8 years ago….We didn’t see the fireworks show at Hollywood Studios sadly but we still had a great time! I think my favourite park was probably Epcot or the Magic Kingdom 🙂

    We’re all desperate to go and this post only makes me want to go more! We’ve been to Paris but not Florida (yet). All the Star Wars stuff looks fantastic and will be the top of our list when we eventually make the trip over x
