I thought it was about time I started a pre trippie for our iminent trip so here goes.

Cast:
Me
DH
DD - Charys -(now 8 but will be a whole year older when we go)

It is Charys' birthday on 12 th November. When we were in Cafe Mickey in summer she kept seeing people having birthday cakes and kept asking if we could go for her birthday so she could have one as well. The answer was no.
However a few weeks ago we (well DH) started googling and checking prices to go for the weekend and came up with a good deal. So a few clicks on the computer later and it was booked.

We fly from Manchester to CDG on Fri 14th Nov at 19.40 arriving at 22.10. We've always driven to DLP before so it will be very different flying for a change.

We intend booking a transfer through BS to get us to our hotel- Kyriad.

As it will be so late when we arrive we will just collapse into bed ready for an early start.

We will be booking Cafe Mickey plus birthday cake for Sat lunchtime then will just grab a snack in the park in the evening.
On Sunday we will probably eat at Annettes at lunchtime.

Our fight back leaves at 21.20 so we have most of the day in the park as well.

We probably wont bother with the Studios and just concentrate on the main park.

We are hoping to soak up the Christmas atmosphere, see all the Christmas shows/parades etc and generally have a fun time. Hopefully BTM will be reopened after its closure the week before or there will be 2 very sad girls (me and DD)

Oh and DD still doesnt know anything about this. We are telling her on her birthday that we are going on the Friday - 2 days later. I cant wait to see her face :cheer2:

Oh we'll try to get a picture but you'll probably hear her screaming from your house Diane.

Mr Small World has made me a new ticker as well now :yay:

How exciting!:goodvibes I think surprising someone is almost as good as going. I bet you can hardly wait to tell her. My eldest will be 9 when we go and it's a great age - old enough to appreciate the trip but still young enough not to be 'too grown up for Disney'.

You will have a fabulous time at Cafe Mickey, DS didn't know I'd planned his birthday cake there, when they started singing and clapping he said "Looks like someone's else is having a Birthday too", his face was a picture when they brought the cake to him... It was a really lovely moment, hope yours is as magical.
Can't wait to hear how your DD reacts when you tell her :banana:
I agree with you about leaving WDS until next time, there'll be so much to do and see in the park I doubt you'll have time to nip next door.

I didnt get chance to post any more last night about the surprise.

DD woke up about 6.30 yesterday very excited as it was her birthday - she climbed into bed with me and we gave her her cards and presents. Usually we just pile them all up and let her choose what order she wants to open them but this year we had a specific one we wanted her to open first. the one from Mickey.

We gave her it and told her to read the envelope so she started reading the address so we told her to look in the corner where it said "A message from Mickey Mouse" - that got her excited so she ripped it open to find a card with a picture of Eeyore on and a photo of herself with Mickey.

Inside it had a message saying that she is always a good girl when Mickey sees her at Disney " so its great that you are coming back".

She turned to us and said "am I going back?"

She read on and saw the words - "We are looking forward to seeing you at DLP on Saturday"

She screamed am I going on Saturday? so we said "no"

She looked disappointed so we said "We're not going on Saturday, but we are going on Friday"

She was so excited.

Well thanks to Air France cancelling our flight tomorrow evening we are now going tomorrow morning instead which means we have extra time at DLP.

We only have a 2 day park pass but are considering getting APs anyhow which would mean we had the pass for the extra day.

We are still eating at Cafe Mickey on Saturday but are now considering eating at Annettes tomorrow when we arrive as we naerly always eat there on our first day
