As we are in the final three months of the year I look back on all we have achieved as a family and sometimes I can’t believe it. We have had some hard times this year but also some wonderful moments and some super awesome blessings. One of those blessings was the chance to visit Disneyland as a family, something I never imagined we could do at the start of the year.
It’s amazing if you set your mind on something and work really hard you can achieve your dreams and taking my daughter to Disneyland sure was a dream. We had a lot of fun taking photos of Sylvia in her Moana costume. She got to meet the real Moana although I kind of felt Sylvia looked more like Moana than the french imposter! Haha! Sorry, Disneyland but it’s true.
We also did a fantastic Cinderella photoshoot which I shared on the blog and on Instagram. In fact, Sylvia mentioned she would love to do another Disney themed photoshoot and when asked who she would like to be this time she chose Belle. We have done quite a few fun shoots this year including Ariel from The Little Mermaid and Snow White. So now it is the time to share Belle from Beauty and the Beast.
This is purely for fun and we ordered Sylvia’s Belle costume from Asda. I did put a call out to say we were planning a photoshoot and we were sent an amazing Chip Beauty and The Beast Mug from Findmeagift.com which is super cute and adorable and Sylvia has been enjoying using it.
So we took some smashing pictures and had lots of fun. Sylvia enjoyed dressing up as Belle. This will possibly be her final fun shoot this year. We do love taking photos and dressing up but she wants a break and she is having one. Unless she is offered something super cool to review which she really likes, she will be having some time out.
The Belle Jewellery is from the Disney Store at Disneyland Paris.
So here are our Belle pictures. I love them. I think they are adorable and it was super fun. We now have a wardrobe full of gorgeous dresses and Sylvia can have lots of fun with her friends in the coming weeks as they play dress ups in the winter.
What is your child’s favourite Disney princess? What costume would they like to wear?
*We were sent the chip mug for the purpose of this post.

Ahh this is gorgeous, my girls are obsessed with Beauty & The Beast and I have just got them new Belle dresses for Christmas. That mug is so cute!
Hannah Wood says
My daughter is big on Minnie at the moment I think both my kids have fallen in love with all things Disney at the moment.
Oh how exciting. We are huge Disney fans.
I love the photos. A disney themed photo shoot always looks great
yes it is always fun and Sylvia enjoys it!
Ana De-Jesus says
Haha I agree with you, Sylvia definitely looks more like Moanna! I love the beauty and the beast photo shoot and how you even had the chip mug. Sylvia looks so happy, I think she loved dressing up!
She sure does! She did the belle dress really well though I think! 🙂
Angela Ricardo Bethea says
My gosh she looks absolutely adorable! She definitely makes a great Belle. That little teacup fit perfectly on her hands. Made things even more magical. I swear she is absolutely photogenic and lovely.
Thanks. She does make great pictures when she smiles ha ha! The chip cup is fab!
Rhian Westbury says
I want to get an Alice in Wonderland costume for myself, but I do think the Belle one looks stunning x
oh that would be cool and I think you would look fab!
Elinor Hill aka Beachhutcook says
Lovely dress and what a cute mug. I love the colour of the dress and I bet it is very swishy. All long dresses should be swishy!
thanks. I agree. 🙂
She looks lovely in the belle dress and that chip cup is so cute and ideal to gift 🙂 x
Oh thanks so much we do enjoy doing Disney princess shoots.

Ahh, she looks gorgeous in her costume. I missed out on this kind of thing as my boys were never into dressing up.
Thanks Sally. She sure does look lovely.

Aw gorgeous photos, my daughter loves Belle and would love to dress up as her.
Thanks so much Globalmouse.

What a great dress, my daughters like wearing princess dresses. What a fab chip mug
Yes it is a lovely dress and the Disney mug is amazing too.
How adorable is she?! Oddly enough, my daughter never went through any Disney Princess stage so she doesn’t actually have a favourite. Mine is Belle, of course. 🙂
she looks fab!
MELANIE EDJOURIAN says
She looks great in both dresses. Sounds like she had a great time dressing up and yes I agree she does look quite like Moana. That’s the job sorted I bet Disney will want to hire her very soon when they decide to do the movie version.
Thanks Melanie. I like that we can wear different dresses and enjoy them!
She is so adorable! I love this creative idea!
Jen Mellor says
I love beauty and the beast and I am just gutted my son isn’t a fan of princesses and I don’t have a girl!!
I am blessed to have a daughter although growing up I was a tom boy and totally opposite to my girl.
Yaya (@mydreamality) says
Absolutely lovely! Sylvia makes a beautiful Belle. x
Thanks so much. She does make a lovely Belle.
I have been looking for Chip and Mrs Potts everywhere – thank you. Eliza’s favourite is Princess Elena 🙂
Oh fab…now you know where to find one.
Such a lovely dress and she really does suit anything. I love your instagram photos. I’ve got a little Belle Tutu vest for my LO as she’s 7 months old, I should put her in it soon before she gets to big for it x
thanks Kirsty. She does look great. I’d love to see your child’s tutu.
Chrissy Faery says
Aw, Bless her! She looks gorgeous, and that chip mug is super cute too! 🙂 I’m sure her photoshoots will be a wonderful thing for you both to look back on when she’s older! xx
thanks. The chip mug is super cute.
The Inner Circle says
How big is Disneyland in France? I knew they opened a park but was wondering how big it was in size?
Your daughter made a nice Belle
It’s huge and has been around 25 years.
The Inner Circle says
25 years already?? I actually found the original Disneyland quite small
It’s huge. The biggest park I have ever been to and we didn’t get to everything in a whole week. I loved it!
Sarah Ann says
Adore this mug! What beautiful photos! Princess Aurora is my favourite and I would have loved to wear a dress like hers when I was younger (okay I admit, I would still love to!)
I wonder if they do adult dresses ha ha?
