Disney Magic at Sea

The Disney Magic came to England this year, to offer staycations to UK guests. Begining its voyage from Southampton, it finished its journey in London Tilbury. It bought a bit of magic a bit closer to home this Summer. I was very lucky to experience two embarkations in two different locations.

Being scared of cruise ships, I had amazing encouragement from friends. I had the most wonderful time experiencing the joy of the Disney Cruise Line which, was truly special.

Hearing how incredible the offerings are normally, the Disney Magic did not disappoint. From Champagne tasting and dining in Palo, there were lots of activities to enjoy, even during a stripped-back version. It was a nice escape from the world for a few days at sea.


This year we also managed to visit Edinburgh. It was exciting being back on a plane. I hadn’t been to Scotland since I was 18. It was even more beautiful than I remember. This time I got to look around Edinburgh Castle too, as the Tattoo was on the last time I went.

We visited the Royal Botanic Gardens and climbed Arthur’s Seat which, was a challenge indeed. Lots of Iron Bru was had too. It was a lovely city break.

Disneyland Paris

Finally, I was very lucky and I had a couple of trips to Disneyland Paris. One was in the Summer, and the other was for the Halloween Soirée. It was nice to be able to visit home again after so long. It’s great seeing the Castle refurbishment coming together too.

The entertainment has been stripped back but, it was still enjoyable. With unique selfie spot meets, meeting the Frozen and Marvel characters felt extra special. It was great to see Rhythms of The Pridelands again.

I have had some wonderful opportunities this year. I have felt incredibly lucky to be blogging over at London Theatre Direct. You can find my reviews here. Here’s hoping for more magical adventures in 2022.
