My first time back in 5 years! loved it!!

Okay where to i start!

Me and my friend went on the 29th sept to 3rd oct, we had a fantasic time, it was my forth time going, first time for my friend.

We started off with a good outbound journay, we went via Eurostar we got leisure class seats on the way, was very comfortable we had the breakfast which was quite nice, we got offered water every now and again to.
The timne went quite quick arrived at the train station 1.30pm we stayed in the sequoia lodge, are room was available straight away so off we went to the main park!
We went straight to Big thunder mountain, queues were 45 mins long, but went quick, my Ugg boots seemed to amused the people in the queues so that kept me quite busy trying to guess what they were saying bout them lol
We then went on the teascups, dumbo ride and plenty more, then we was knackered adue to the early start.so off to bed we went

Then we did the disney studios, i was dying to find nemo, lost count how many times i went on the ride, loved it!!! loved the seagulls kept me amused "mine mine mine" lol. The queue stated 45min wait, i wouldnt say i waited that long at all, was moving steadly all the time, i filmed going around it once on my camera, me screaming in the backround lol

We also loved the buzz lightyear ride, i kept winning, so my friend kept spinning out carriage all the time so i couldnt shoot anything! (still won) lol
We had plenty of coffees and donuts to eat, which i must say killed my spending money a little, very expensive.
we also ate pizza alot, but we were on hols we loved it!
Everyone should try nemo ride!!! was brilliant!!!

We tried to go swimming one night, took us ages to get to a cubicle to get changed, when we did manage to get changed all ready to jmp in the pool, we got stopped, a little boy had been sick in the pool so they had to close it.........so off we went to get re-dressed, thats the only time we tried the pool, disney village kept us entertained most nights.

We took the Paris night tour thurs night, was very interesting we had the back of the bus to ourselves, we got to stop at the Effiel tower, which was very pretty we got to see it all lite up, only thing annoying there was the guys selling things who wouldnt leave us alone, no matter how many times i said i didnt want anything, it just didnt matter to them, i was just on the verge of having a go at them, but they backed off!

We had a fantasic time, i would also recommend the night tour one night, just the only downs we had were the prices of food! we spent so much money on food, i knew before i went it was expensive, and also trying to eat after park is closed was a nightmare to find anywhere, we ended up getting something earlier in the day and getting a sandwich to take back to our room.

Also ladies, one of the loo's in the adventure park was a bit dodgy! it flushed 7 times when i was using it,was annoying me to begin with, but then had a laughter of fits, my friend could hear me doors down which craked her up! they must of thought we were crazy girls lol

Then on the last day, i got a txt from my partner saying the car had broken down on the way to st Pancras so we had to find outr own way home, so we didnt really enjoy the trip home, we changed at Lille but couldnt find our way to eurostar a lovely guy helped us.
me and my friend were seated apart on way back, but a lovely lady let me stay next to my friend. so wasnt to bad.
then had to wait in st pancras for hour and a half to get a train to our town.
then when getting to my house realised i didnt have a key so managed to get in through a window (what the cats use) which got us into fits of laughter trying to get in my house in the dark!

was a great hol, would do it all again!!! me and my family are going to book for next xmas, when my boy will be two, hes gonna love it!!!
xx

I would be sitting on the patio of the Fontana bar at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas watching the dancing fountains on a warm balmy night whilst sipping vintage Champagne

I know what you mean about some of the loos flushing while using them. It happened numerous occasions with us, mostly when my 7yr old daughter was using them!! She found it frustrating, but I have to say I found it amusing

Glad you had a great trip
