Disney Magic! Highs and Lows 1-5 October trip

Hello everyone,

I'm quite new to this board but thought you might like to read my highs and lows!

This was our second time going for the Halloween period and I must say I love it!

Sequoia Lodge - lovely hotel, we had a couple of little niggles with our room (lamp not working and bath plug wouldn't plug!) but other than that it was really nice and a nice short walk to the parks!

Characters - they were excellent and really made our trip, we saw so many (though we booked a few character meals including Auberge so we did seek them out!) and they were great. We saw the Fab Five, Woody, Jessie, Tigger, Eeyore, Mulan, Mary Poppins, Princess Jasmine, Ariel, Remy, lots of villains, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, the 3 Good Fairies and many more! We also saw Peter Pan and Wendy filming a special meet and greet with sick children and although we couldn't meet them, Peter did have a conversation with my eldest much to her delight as she loves Peter Pan!

Rapunzel! - My eldest girls absolute favourite princess, she loves her - was starting to be resigned to the fact that we wouldn't see her but on our 3rd day went over to the Princess Pavillion. We queued for an hour and finally got the the Princesses - there are 2 and you don't know who you will get or which 2 there will be. My daughter was asked by the cast member who she would like to see, (obviously she said Rapunzel), the cast member smiled and directed us to the right and there she was! My daughter beamed and ran into her arms and I just burst into tears - such a magical moment! And Rapunzel was so lovely to my daughter, lots of hugs and because she also has long blonde hair they were comparing!

Disney Dreams - I cried, such a beautiful show - would have loved to have seen it again but with a 1 year old we had to get her in bed at a reasonable time the other nights of the trip

Rides - wait times were not too bad, between us we got on crush 3 times, thunder mountain 3 times (baby switch is great too) and we walked straight onto Phantom Manor, Pinocchio, Snow White and loads of others

Now for the lows, although they didn't spoil our trip

Cost - I've been to DLP a couple of times before but it still shocks me how much they charge for stuff - I picked up a bag of Kit Kat choccies - 7.99 euros!

Rude People! Again, I was expecting it but it still angered me - the cast members in majority were really good but there were a couple of those that were a bit on the rude side, and some woman breezed right in front of me in a queue as I was about to approach the till for my transaction!

Smoking - I know everyone says about this but I hated it, no-one cared if they were wafting it right at my baby or little girl - just no need for it!

Other than that I loved it, would recommend Cowboy cookout BBQ to anyone, the food is good and plentiful and the character interaction is fantastic. Auberge was nice but the food quite 'posh' which can be hard if you're not used to it. Though the princesses made it worthwhile.

To all those going soon - I'm jealous! Is it too early to start my countdown for WDW 2016???
