I have decided to start a Disney series on the blog. I unofficially started it a few weeks ago with a guide to Disney Paris which you can read here. The reason I started it isn’t necessarily because I’m Disney obsessed (I’m not really, I’m Beauty and the Beast obsessed); it is because Disney is good for my well-being. The last year hasn’t been the easiest and a trip to Disney Paris last October was so good for me. It is a place that happiness is almost mandatory. It is impossible to feel down. I find that having a Disney mug on my desk or a trip to the Disney shop now and again does me good and allows me to re-live very happy memories.
Today I’m talking about the Disney shop on Grafton Street. I had a voucher sitting in my bag for a while waiting for the perfect purchase. I arrived to the shop pretty early with the hope of opening it and being gifted with a magic key but alas I was beaten to it. It was quite nice to get in early anyway and look around in peace. I had done a bit of research and knew exactly what I was in the market for. A Beauty and the Beast tea set. I had seen it online and had hoped it was stocked in Dublin. I was thrilled to pick it up. The tea set is much bigger than I had expected. Mrs. Potts bubbles and brews and speaks. The box will never be opened as I like to preserve collectables forever.
My new set is in good company with some of my other tea sets. They can live out their days together in a display cabinet.
I took a few more Beauty and the Beast pictures as I wandered around the store. I might have to buy all of them!
As it was quiet I had a look on all floors and found lots to entertain myself. Unfortunately the wands were missing from the magic mirrors so I didn’t get to wave them around.
I always like to have a look at the superhero and Star Wars stuff on the bottom floor too. I wonder if I could get a similar hulk in my front garden.
I had a lot of fun wandering around the shop and I’m thrilled with my new set.
