Silver Spur Steakhouse Restaurant Review | Disney Dining (Disneyland Paris)

Now I wouldn't consider myself to have a sophisticated palette in the slightest, but being a vegetarian I find it helpful to read reviews of Disney Park Restaurants to see what the vegetarian offerings are like. A vegetarian in a steakhouse you may ask! There is a method to the irony! During our Disneyland Paris trip we had the standard half board meal plan, meaning we had vouchers worth €26 towards a meal. I will go more into the DLP dining plan in a future video as it’s completely different to Walt Disney World and can be a little confusing, but for now just know that we chose to eat off a set menu which included a Starter, Main and Desert for about €28.99 with an additional large bottle of water which we shared, using the vouchers to pay off most of the meal then paying out of pocket for the excess (about €6-€8 each extra).

When entering the restaurant we were greeted by the lovely host who was very friendly seated us in a section surrounded by other English people, which I assume they do depending on what server speaks good English, as ours did. It was pretty empty as can be expected in off peak times, but it made the atmosphere very relaxed. The decor was perfect for its location in Frontierland, being very “western cowboy” yet still sophisticated. There was only one vegetarian option for a starter and main in Silver Spur Steakhouse, but as with all Disney Dining, if you are not keen you can request a custom dish (although I'm not sure how this would align with the set menu). I was happy with the options available which were Sweetcorn Soup with Corn Bread as a starter and a Tofu Tagliatelle with Vegetables for my main. A basket of bread rolls was also brought out soon after ordering to snack on while waiting for the food to arrive. I was a little sceptical of the Sweetcorn Soup initially as I’m not the biggest fan of sweet corn, but wow, it was the most delicious soup I have ever had in my life. It was creamy, mild and perfect for a cold February evening. The cornbread accompaniment was also amazing, although I preferred to eat this on its own as it just crumbled if I tried to dip. This dish was so good that I still think about it and long for another bowl full. As for the main, even though it wasn't as memorable as the starter, I still enjoyed it. The tagliatelle was cooked to perfection while the sundried tomatoes added a little kick. Although the tofu was a little tasteless, on a whole everything worked well together and I barely managed to finish it, having to save some room for desert of course. Speaking of desert, I chose to have the Chocolate Brownie Sundae, which the server confirmed is suitable for vegetarians. This was also mouth wateringly delicious and rounded up a perfect meal, probably the best I've ever had in a Disney Park.

Considering that the Silver Spur Steakhouse is one of Disneyland Paris’s ‘budget’ table service restaurants, I would 100% recommend it to anyone. The service was great, the food delicious and the whole experience highly enjoyable.

Have you dined at any of Disneyland Paris’s restaurants?

Favourite Disney Instagramers

favourite disney instagrammers a

Out of all the social media platforms out there today, Instagram is probably my favourite. I would consider myself to be quite a visual person (and really nosey haha), so being able to get a glimpse into peoples lives through photographs is fascinating. Plus we all love those cliché filters, don't we? I wish to share some of my favourite instagramers with you today, more specifically Disney instagramers. I love how this platform has brought Disney lovers from all over the globe together, sharing their pictures with each other and making being away from the magic most of the year, that little bit more bearable.

A Disney Stationary Obsession

disney stationary a

I love me some stationary. Pair it with Disney and you get one overexcited 23 year old. Everything from pens to post-it notes, if I spot it, its going in the basket. A few of the pieces I with to share with you today are fairly recent buys, so should still be available. First up are these amazing Mickey Mouse highlighters from Topshop. Do I have any use for highlighters? Not at all, yet I still purposely made an order with the sole intention of getting them. Having a free shipping event didn't really help the matter… Next up is the selection of Mickey Mouse bits from Primark. There are a few different sets in store at the moment ranging from £1.50 - £3, bargain! My Donald Duck pen was a result of my recent Disneyland Paris trip and the Minnie Mouse notebook was a gift from my boyfriend for Christmas, tis perfect for all my bloggy scribbles. You’ve all seen my rave post about my Moleskine diary, its a perfect pocket sized diary to keep track of my shifts at work and important dates with added Disney magic. Finally is the Disney Villains post-it note set which I got from the Disney Store about 2 years ago when they had the designer villains collection out. Villains are my thing so this sits proudly on my desk, although I don't really have any use for post-it notes since finishing university.

I do have many more Disney stationary bits including a ridiculous amount of notebooks, half of them of which I am scared to use as they are so pretty and totally just sit on my shelf as decoration. Do you get ridiculously excited over stationary?

“Where there is kindness, there is goodness. And where there is goodness, there is magic.”
- Cinderella (2015)

A few nights ago me and my boyfriend went to see the new Cinderella live action movie at Odeon. In light of this, I decided to play with my Sephora Cinderella palette. I'm actually gutted that Sephora seems to have stopped doing the Disney line as I wanted them to do a collection for every princess, ah well. The first thing I have to say about this palette is that the packaging is beautiful. The image is reflective of the 1950 animated classic and the quote, while not actually from the film, is a nice touch. All 4 of the shades in the Midnight Hour palette are neutral and compliment each other beautifully, having a highlight, lid and crease colour so that the palette can be used singularly. The eye shadows are applied beautifully and blend flawlessly making this a stunning little palette.

While I was a little sceptical about the Cinderella live action, especially after what they did to Maleficent, I was actually blown away by how amazing it was. They retold the story beautifully with a fantastic cast, breath taking costumes and wonderful visuals. After seeing it, I kinda have more faith in Disney with the upcoming live action craze, although I still wish they would make more original features rather than just remaking classics.

Have you seen the new Cinderella film? Do you own the Sephora Midnight Hour palette?

As you may know, I went to Disneyland Paris last month, so thought I would share some of my photographs with you! I went with my good friend Rachael and we had the most wonderful time, despite the cold. Disneyland Paris is so different to its American counterparts yet I still enjoyed it immensely. I’ve already started looking at prices to go back again at Christmas…
I did vlog the whole trip, so if you want to check them out you can find them here!
Have you ever been to Disneyland Paris?
