A Dream Come True - March 2013 PTR

As the title sugests, this trip is really a dream come true - for more then one reason!

Firstly, let me introduce the cast! We have:

Me - Helen - Age 29

I'm a huge Disney Fan, always have been and always will be! Now, I'm lucky enough to have a Disney mad Daughter too, so I loving being able to share my 'happy place' with her for the third time!

My favourite characters are Chip & Dale and Tigger!

DD - Olivia - Age 5 (will be 6 the day after we come home!)

As you can see from this picture, she loves being a Princess and meeting Sleeping Beauty was a big highlight of our last trip! Her other favourite Characters are Stich, Jessie, Tigger & Minnie.

DM - Linda - Age 64 (her big 6 5 is on 5th April so this is her birthday treat!)

Mum is a big kid at heart, so Disney is the ideal place for her to go! This will be her Second trip and she is very very excited.
She doesn't really have any favourite characters, she just loves the whole experience!

When: 17th March 2013 for 4 nights
Where: DISNEYLAND HOTEL :w oohoo:
How: Direct Eurostar both ways

I mentioned before that this is a dream come true trip for us. This is mainly because we're finally getting to stay at the Disneyland Hotel - I've stayed in all the on site hotels at some point over the years, but this is the first time we've 'pushed the boat out' and gone for the Disneyland Hotel.

This trip is also very special as we are celebrating Olivia's 6th Birthday, my Mum's 65 birthday and also my impending wedding!

I am so excited, but must find time to sit and start to plan it a bit more, so I'm hoping this PTR will inspire to me do just that!

We went the same week last year as we are going this year and found it perfect! The park wasn't too busy but busy enough to have a nice atmosphere. Last year was helped along by the gorgeous weather! Hoping this year follows suit there lol!

Sounds like a wonderful trip! How exciting to stay at the DLH with your mum - I have had similar thoughts about taking my mom sometime and thought it would be the perfect hotel for us.

Enjoy your trip!

Thank you

Last year we stayed at the Cheyenne and whilst we loved it, with my Mum having two replacement hips and dodgy knees it was a quite a long walk after a long day of trekking round the parks. So we thought we'd go for the DLH so that it will be a lot easier to pop back every now and then!

Speaking of my Mum, she not happy that only non-blurry Disney pic I could find of her is one of her 'studying' the map.. so he is a nice non-Disney one of the soon to be birthday girl

I'll tell her you said that, it will make her day.. no week...no probably her year!!

Tonight Olivia & I are going to sit down and do our Disneyland Countdown Calendar! We've done one on our past two trips and it's something for her to get involved with as she can countdown the days each day (also stops the "how many more days" questions!

I'll try to get a picture of it up on here tonight!

Less than a month to go now!

I've been having a think about our meal plan but not really sure what to do this time! I'm keen to try some places I've never tried.. but also have a few firm favourites that I want to go to again! At this rate, we'll be having 4 meals a day!

So far, my must do places to eat are:

Auberge
Walts
EoS
Annettes
Rainforest Cafe
Blue Lagoon
Inventions

Plus we will be doing the Wild West show!

Just now need to put that information into some kind of meal plan! We're there Sunday-Thursday so should have just enough time to fit them all in!

Oh, yes, less than a month...
I decided to skip BBWWS this time and do Sunday brunch
We'll be doing EoS, Rainforest cafe, Annettes too. Can't wait.
