Guest blogger Sara has put together this fab guide to Disneyland Paris for us.
Disneyland, located in Marne-la-Valleé, just 20 miles east of Paris, is not just for children – at 26, I absolutely love it. Many people have the misconception that you must have a child with you to enjoy the park. Well I say no you don’t!
