Half term highs and lows
Just back from 3 fabulous nights at Cheyenne. There were 7 of us and we got our requested adjoining rooms in Doc Holiday building. My brother in law drove for the first time since easyjet no longer fly from Newcastle. The journey was good, 13 hours to get there! We broke the return journey with a stop over at my sisters near London.
The weather - very cold, but bright and sunny. Tuesday was warmer with a beautiful blue sky.
Hotel Cheyenne - we loved it! Great rooms near to river so walk to parks was really quick. We asked for extra pillows which were sent straight away. Kettle in room, the alarm on our phone worked and the rooms were clean. Yes it's getting a bit old, but it was cosy and comfy!
Studios - Had our most successful morning ever there. Everything was working (Crush and RnR) Fastpasses available in the morning (They were only available from 12.00 in October) Got everything done we wanted to do by 12.30.
Plaza Gardens- Lovely buffet meal with attentive waiter who refilled our drinks regularly, good value for money! We also went for breakfast and had a nice table in conservatory, lovely fresh fruit and better choice than Cheyenne.
Dreams, the parades, dinner at Annettes, Earl of Sandwich and seeing the park in the sunshine were also highs.
On Sunday night the park was open till 10, but lots of attractions were closed; BTM, Indie, Fantasyland, Pirates (difficult to fill our time waiting for Dreams)
Toilets closed in Fantasyland (we saw a man relieving himself next to these - urgh)
Queues at ticket booth on Tuesday morning to collect sun voucher tickets (we missed most of EMH's) Also queues at annual pass office on Sunday (My DSis had prepaid vouchers to exchange, it took ages!)
We had a great trip on a fairly good budget - now when can we go back?
