On the 27th November 1937 the very final cells were painted on Disney's very fist feature length animated film - Snow White.

The festive season is almost upon us but for the Disney parks it has already arrived and there are lots, and lots, of holiday foodie offerings to be had.

Over at Disneyland all things gingerbread has taken over from amazing sculptures to yummy treats. From creations inside the Haunted Mansion to...

And don't forget there are plenty of indulgent treats to be had across the parks and hotels.

And of course Walt Disney World is not left out as we see the return of the astounding gingerbread carousel over at the Beach Club resort, along with lots more.

More gingerbread information can be found on the Disney Parks blog.

You can also check out the Disney Parks blog for the full run down of seasonal treats at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Although we recommend having something to eat first as it will make you rather hungry!

In ShopDisney news we are pleased to report that the UK site have extended its range of clothing sizes to accommodate all body shapes. And for our US listeners if you sign up for a Disney Visa card you will receive $100 credit after your first purchase which would be very handy for buying those Christmas gifts!!

430 Disney Dream Girls Podcast

Welcome to this week's Disney Dream Girls Podcast - show number 430 for Sunday 30th October 2022. 

If you would like to ensure you never miss a show, please subscribe to us via your podcast catching place or alternatively you can listen in using the audio player below.

On this week's show, we look at how to follow a vegan diet whilst in Disneyland Paris. So below are just a few of the many items that are offered.

Snack - Cable Car Bake Shop - 3.50 Euros

Vegan cookie

Snack - Gibson Girl - 3 Scoops 5 Euros

Quick Service - Au Chalet de la Marionette - 16 Euros

Offers a plant based burger - with the usual sides - mini Magnum or yoghurt. 

Quick Service - Toad Hall - 12 Euros

Battered soya and chips

Silver Spur Steakhouse - 32-42 Euros

Even here there is a vegan option. Yes it may not represent value but you can get an avocado salad, vegetable skewer with potatoes, followed by red berries, silken tofu, cashew nuts and popcorn.

Augberge De Cendrillon - 75 Euros

A high-end eatery but again has a vegan option for each course. 

As you can see, being vegan at DLP is possible! And don't forget there is the Disney Village eateries also!

Romance in DLP

Depend on your personality... for some a creepy walk to the dungeons to see La Taniere du Dragon is enough to get the heart racing or a delicious meal with a few drinks. We discuss a few options on the podcast - what do you think?

Christmas in DLP

For me, Christmas is best experienced in the Sequoia Lodge with its rustic feel and warming fires. Christmas, as a Brit is always cold and chilly - possibly with a touch of snow and this is something that will be replicated in DLP. 

Their Christmas time runs from November 12th to the 8th January. So plenty of time to catch all there is to offer. There is Mickey's Dazzling Christmas Parade, Christmas Trees and decorations, Let's Sing Christmas and up to 25th December - Santa!

On this weeks show we chat news from Walt Disney World and Disneyland as well as look forward to some trip planning!

It had been over 3 years since Jayne has been able to experience Disney in person but she now has a trip booked and a countdown is in progress...

...listen to the show to find out more!

Michelle also has an upcoming trip in the works and whilst it may not be strictly Disney she already has plans afoot to incorporate a little Disney magic into it.

On the news front we muse about the recent prices increases announced for both Walt Disney World and Disneyland and the potential impact that they may have. Increases are always inevitable but the girls ask how much is too much.

Over in Disneyland the 'Holiday Time at the Disneyland Resort' is back. Guests can now enjoy this seasonal tour starting from 11th November and is one that Michelle has experienced a number of times.

Just as the girls were about to record they heard the sad news of the passing of Dame Angela Lansbury, just days before her 97th birthday which would have been today, 16th October.

The girls take a brief look at a career that spanned seven decades and at a life well lived.
