hi again.
now, as sum of u know, this is a trip for just me and the boys, as dh is currently working in france.
now, he originally arranged that on our last day, he would come down and spend the day in the parks with us (he has a free ticket courtesy of eurotunnel) so it wouldnt cost him anything!!

hes been thinking, and thought now about driving down the night before, stopping with us at the hotel and then coming into the park as above.

thing is - obviously the booking is for me and the boys, and we have a room with a double bed & bunks so the accomodation part is no issue. so - how do we go about this?? do i need to add dh for one night with no ticket required, and any ideas on how much this wud be?? or would he be able to come in without a problem?? also, when we drive to the hotel, we normally have to show the gate our res letter - what would dh need to do?? would i just need a copy of our letter for him???

am so confused. obviously if i cud sneak him in it would be fab, but am sure the legality of it wouldnt be right - even tho he is making no difference to the room/food/park etc

can anyone advise before i try and phone up and figure out what i need to ask??? guess the most important bit is gettin thru the gate at the hotel?!?!?!


HELP!!!!!!!!!

Bonjour Nikki :wave2:

I did the exact same thing with my Brother in December.

You have two options:

1) Give them a call and get them to add Mr Nikki on now for you, it will cost you the price of the local taxes for one night (Around 2-4)

2) Turn up at Reception with Mr Nikki and they will add him on for the night with you, charging you the local taxes at Reception instead.

Just remember to say the Mr Nikki has park tickets already and that you don't need them for him. They may make you put him on for the whole trip however it is such a small amount for the local taxes that it really makes no difference. In December it cost me 1.57 in local taxes to add my Brother on to the booking for 3 nights at the DCR.

Let us know how you get on Nikki :goodvibes

stayin at cheyenne

john - its a free ticket with eurotunnel, so has to be redeemed on the day - which is a pig......

cud do it by puttin ds2 in pushchair & pretending hes under 3 (no ticket) then i push him thru with my adult ticket, dh takes ds2 ticket and walks thru as usual - then when we come out after emh - go pack the car, and then dh buys his ticket!!! in fact we cud just say ds2 is under 3 and wlak him thru - as he doesnt talk or behave like a 3 yr we cud do that..... is that being naughty just for emh?????????

Damn!

Hmmm...not sure if that would work Nikki as they may ask for ID for the kiddie to prove he is under 3.

well....... they didnt in december when we went, and tbh he hasnt changed since then!!! (wish he had but hey ho...) and he wont use the barrier anyhow - he always creeps under them (every week at swimming lol)

will have to think on this - as i said before, its not hugely important that we all do emh - in fact, i cud pack the car whilst dh took them in then meet them at the park then dh cud get his ticket...... as we do want to pop to studios......

anyhow - its not a problem - cay is the problem - in the time i took to type this hes tripped over 5 times!!!!!!!!!!! clumsy is an understament *makes note to buy more antiseptic cream and plasters for trip* lol

thanks not too bad, ash used to headbutt the floor or the walls if she was angry just to get your attention. in the end i had to ignore it so she would stop so i would say she came pretty close to knocking herself out :rotfl2:

:scared: I don't think I could have handled that! It was the Mrs who was the calm one last night, I kept trying to stop him which only made it worse really

:rotfl::rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

thats how it goes im afraid lol. its all only for attention. i nearly killed me having to let her do it. once she had a huge bump poor girl. but she stop fairly quickly when she realised she was getting hurt for no reason. trying to stop my mom from running to her now that was another problem lol

cay still does that - he will go and find stuff to smack his head into - but obviously that isnt typical of 3 yr olds so dont worry!!! when hes upset we have to chase/grab him to stop him doing it!!!

kids....... and u wonder y i dye my hair!!! (way too much grey now;):lmao:)
