Just back now after a week relaxing in South Wales at the end of our holiday before returning to Ireland. 6 days in DLp from 13th July travelling by Eurostar from London. Trip was a great adventure and I will do a trippie in a day or two. Have to say all in all the visit was FAR more enjoyable than the one in July two years ago. Disney seem to have "upped the ante" and the whole experience was excellent.:thumbsup2

Quick outline:

High Points:
7th floor hotel room in Sequoia Lodge overlooking the castle!!!
Walk on queues (timed well of course)
Brilliant character interaction without any fuss
Buffallo Bills excellent show

Low Points:

Massive thunder and lightning storm on second last night which scared the beejebus out of me (hid in the loo!)


Will do a trippie when I can focus again and when I have a few loads of washing done:lmao:

I love massive storms, so that would be another plus point for me ( as long as I was tucked up in bed with a cuppa, watching it out of the window:laughing:)

That's why I don't fancy Orlando again in Aug, never seen storms like it!! Hope we don't get one when we go in a few weeks!

Glad you had a good time.

The massive thunder and lightening storm started just after we arrived at CDG. We were in the taxi on the way to the dreamcastle and the driver said the airport was closing after our flight:eek: So glad we weren't in the air as it was my OH's first time on a plane:scared1: It was pretty spectacular though!

Saw some planes landing at the start of it, was terrified for the people even though I know its completely safe!! I have never actually seen fork lightning and from our room on top floor of Sequoia we saw everything At one poinr there was a huge fork just over TOT. Could you imagine the doors opening just as that happened!!!:scared1: Got some good video footage (courtesy of brave husband at window.....

Oh you was there when they had the real bad weather, my friend said they had to shut the park early and that no trains or planes were leaving while the storm was on. I thought he was joking untill he showed me the weather via webcam.

Glad to hear you enjoyed BBWWS, really looking forward to seeing that.
