Spotlight on… Pula, Croatia

Everything you need to know about Disneyland® Paris

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!

Another misconception many people have with regards to Disneyland is that it is only one park, boy are they wrong. In fact Disneyland Paris consists of two separate parks right next door to each other – Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park. Disneyland Park has roughly 14 million guests a year and has over 15,000 staff known as ‘cast members’.

The Park consists of 5 different lands each with their own theme, rides, attractions and character meet and greets. There’s so much to see!

Janine Marsh, the editor of www.thegoodlifefrance.com and a member of the British Guild of Travel Writers, tells us why a day trip to Carcassonne is a must.

The Languedoc region is often called the real south of France. It covers a wide area and has many personalities – more vineyards than anywhere in the world, rugged mountains, huge lakes, spectacular gorges and elegant cities. It is a region with a fascinating heritage and the ancient walled city of Carcassonne is one of the most impressive jewels in its crown.
