Packing, Paris in Boston Style, Style

Parisian-inspired style for visiting theme parks

If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you know that I love all things Disney, especially visiting their theme parks. I love planning my trips down to where I’m going to eat at each park and at what times, but after 15 visits to the parks in Orlando, Anaheim, and Paris, one problem still exists – deciding what to wear at the parks. What to wear on the bottom half is easy: black, slim pants or shorts. They go with everything, can take multiple wearings, and don’t show dirt as easily. It’s the perfect top that seems to be so elusive!

Paris in Boston Disneyland Paris Hotel

I have an upcoming trip in December and I’ve already booked pretty much everything (actually, I booked everything in July!). The flight, hotel, restaurants I want to try, and shuttle are all set. Yet I still don’t know what to wear!

Many factors are involved in decided what to pack: weather, comfort, style, and luggage space. I know I want to keep my attire Parisian-influenced, meaning my outfits have to be effortless, comfortable, and stylish. I’ve been curating a closet that meets this criteria for awhile now, and I’ve managed to find many items on sale. I’ve also found items that are reminiscent of designer styles for a fraction of the price. You just have to keep an eye out no matter where you go!

I’ve curated some beautiful shirts that I plan on buying when they’re on sale, and also using them as inspiration while I continue my search for what to wear to my upcoming trip to Disney. They are definitely perfect to wear to parks that are magical and full of fairy-tales!

Disneyland Paris: Sunday brunch buffet at Inventions restaurant

I recently visited Disneyland Paris during the holidays with the aim of not only taking in the parks (or “parcs” as they say in France)  in all their holiday splendor, but also to experience the bounties of the Sunday brunch buffet at Inventions restaurant at the Disneyland Hotel. Today, let’s travel to Paris to see what the Inventions buffet has to offer for brunch.

I first read about this buffet in a review about five years ago on the Disney Food Blog. Looking at the photos of this buffet, where food is treated and displayed like works of art, made me understand what Tina Fey as Liz Lemon meant on 30 Rock when she said the phrase “I want to go to there”. I mean, this buffet is glorious! Before we check out the food, let’s set the scene.

Since the restaurant is located within the Disneyland Hotel, you don’t have to worry about buying a ticket for the parks to eat at this wonderful restaurant. Disneyland Paris is unique in that the Disneyland Hotel also serves as the entrance for Disneyland Park, so you’re never too far away from the rides and entertainment.

However, during my visit with some friends, our only goal this day was to eat brunch at the buffet, and we saved lots of room by barely eating any breakfast. Our anticipation for our leisurely meal was heightened as we approached the Disneyland Hotel.
