Fantasising of our next DCL & WDW Trip

Tuesday January 24th
Today was our Studios day and I was excited to explore the park properly this time and see what the new Toy Story Playland was like.

We got up and dressed and made our way down to breakfast where we bumped into..



Duffy! How cute does he look in his little French outfit.

I'm telling him how soft he is here






We headed into breakfast and loaded up on some sugary treats.




On the way out who should we bump into but the Big Cheese himself and his best bud.



Mrs Cheese


Then we were off for short walk to the Studios.























Our first ride of the day was Crush's Coaster. There was a short wait, but before long we were loading into our shell. This ride is so awesome! Its your classic pinball type rollercoaster and you get a different experience depending on whether you start off backwards or facing front. I like backwards, but Dave seems to like forward better.

Hearts a pumping, we set off for our next ride.



The army men parachute ride. We figured this would get Dave prepared for Tower of Terror, as this is a very veerrrry tame version of a drop straight down. I think he liked it, which was a good sign for me

After our parachute ride we headed towards RC Racer which was practically walk on, albeit a loooooooong long walk on! Again this ride was pretty cool, RC goes pretty fast and pretty high.

A few more pics of Play Land.














Rexy!










For some reason I wanted to try and take photos of all the Studio numbers. Not sure if I actually succeeded though











Play Land explored we headed back towards the other side of the park.

Our next stop was...


Stitch Live! Loved this, you get to sit down and interact with Stitch who takes you on a ride through space, causing trouble along the way. Is very funny and cute too

After Stitch we walked over to Lights Moteurs Action! to grab a seat for the first showing of the day.

Then who should appear but...


Lightening McQueen!



Was a cute little skit, with a similar villain car that he had to find. Not sure why we didn't get a picture of him





































Not a bad show, although my butt was going numb after a while Have never seen the WDW version, but this is the second time I have seen the Paris one and from what I remember not much has changed, apart from Lightening being added.

After the show we were feeling peckish for lunch so we made our way over to the Village for a Maccy D's, which we bought back to the room (Sorry no food porn, but am guessing McD's is pretty much the same everywhere you go).

We did not go back to the Studios after lunch, I think we were going to try and book in a tour and decided that now would be better and we could do the parade the next day. Also I think Dave was trying to keep me away from ToT as he was still unsure about it

The tour wasn't on for that day which was a bummer and we had missed the parade, so we decided to stay in the park and go on some rides.

First up was Pinocchio, then Peter Pan, finishing off with Pirates. We called it a day after that and went back to the room to chill. I think we watched some episodes of Supernatural before calling it a night.

Hi and Thanks for joining, always nice to see new faces

We always try to spend as much time in Disney as we can what with the 9hr flight. But another part of us would love to be able to make small multiple trips throughout the year

Bet your co-worker is having a blast, cannot wait to read the first reports on the Fantasy

Great update, Stefy! Just in time .... we are getting so excited about our trip to DLRP .... in just 5 weeks we'll be there!

Bummer on the house, but I am with you, the right house will be there at the perfect time!

Love the Eastern Caribbean cruise you have planned .... even though I DID have a slight idea of that!
I will try to post about our Eastern when we get off the ship in August next year!

Guess what, I have done the unthinkable and actually made plans for our Paris trip. Guess who's to "blame"? Definitely you!!!!! You got me all in the mood and we will definitely go for an EMH (having an AP Dream lets you enjoy them too) one day!So, thanks for all the photos!

A Stitch ride! I love Stitch, so I'm sure I'd love to try that attraction.

Thanks It would be cool if they introduced the TS area, but the rides are pretty tame and would only really appeal to the kiddies (which obviously if you have kids is great).

The theming is amazing though and incorporating all the TS bits and pieces into the area is really cool, like the barrel of monkeys and the christmas light bulbs. Really well done

If I am being honest I do find updating a little draining as I have to remember off my notes, upload the photos etc. I think if life wasn't so stressful right now it would be a piece of cake to get them out. But do feel free to press me, is always nice to know someone wants to read this report

Gosh 5 weeks! Not long now

It was really disappointing that we didn't get the house, but hopefully something else will come up soon

I can't wait for next year. We have been following the progress of the Fantasy and I am loving the Tweets from the Inaugural Cruise. Defo can't wait to hear all about your adventure, will get us even more excited to read all about it

Lol! You defo should do EMH as the 20th Celebrations are going to be something to remember that's for sure. Defo read up on all the events and special events too, for instance the new Castle show I have heard you can get FP for to get good guaranteed seats

Its not really a ride, more like Turtle Talk with Crush (which we still haven't done), is so much fun though

Ok, I must admit it, I believe I'm starting to have a crush on Duffy! Seriously, he really is a cute bear. Drat you Disney, and your marketing genius!!!!

Sorry to hear you didn't get the house, but everything does happen for a reason. It was probably infested with termites...

It's so neat to see how they incorporated certain elements of DHS in Paris...though I'm starting to think all the non-Florida parks get more "intense" rides. Perhaps we'll have to take a trip next year....

Can't wait to read more!

Duffy is just a cutey isn't he I am planning on getting a plush on our next Disney trip. I almost did in Paris, but it was just too expensive for me to justify at the time.

They are slightly more intense in Paris, the Snow White ride is a lot darker and focuses a little more on the dark woods and Hag

Lol, or maybe you get invaded by the horses from the nearby paddock alot Although not sure if that's a bad thing.

I did go and look at another house yesterday that looks promising, will know more today after my boss (who's a surveyor) takes a look at it for me

Thanks for the update - I LOVE hearing about your DLRP trip!! My DH has booked the 1st week of December off work now so that's when we're planning on going to DLRP!! I'm so excited already!!

So sorry to hear about the house but as you said, maybe it happened for a reason. I'm all for thinking like that!!

And how exciting about your cruise next year!!!
