Sat 16th - Stayed at kingscross travelodge ready for our morning departure on eurostar

DAY 1

Sun 17th - Arrived around 2ish. Checked into hotel , dumped our stuff and headed straight for the park
Headed straight for AP office as me and dd had to exchange temp ap's for full ones. This was WAY easier than i thought it would be. I was given a sheet of paper to write down my address and email, the lady did a bit of typing on her computer, then she took mine and dd photo and voila, we had our AP's She then told us what discounts etc we could now get.

We had a bit of a wander around and then went on pirates of car (1st time we've been on it) Kids loved it, although at the end of ride it broke down so we were stuck on it for about 10 mins.
We then settled down to watch the parade Kids got a great spot

The kids loved the parade and i got some great pics

After the parade we headed to cafe mickey, we had a reservation for 6.15 (1st visit for us) All i can say is FABEverything was brilliant, we enjoyed the food, atmosphere, character interaction.....everything...

DAY 2 of our trip

The previous evening the girls had purchased Jasmine outfits


IMG_1634 by simplyshaz, on Flickr

The outfits were 59.99 and the headress 15.99 (all the princess outfits were this price) I did notice that for the same price the cape was included with the brave dress but the cape for jasmine was 34.99 extra (not happening am afraid) ...However on the plus side. The girls each saved 15.20 on their outfits because of the dream AP's
Several times during the day the girls got stopped by ppl who wanted there photos taken with them

We made use of FP and went on peter pan, buzz, pirates(again)
We were booked in for Buffalo bills at the 6.30 showing, so we headed there at around 5.30


IMG_1659 by simplyshaz, on Flickr

We all had a good evening at buffalo bills, plenty of food n drink n entertainment I (i enjoyed the chilli) The kids weren't overly impresses with the food though. After the show we went back to hotel

DAY 3
The previous evening one of the cm's told us that jasmine would be somewhere at 11.30 the following morning. The girls were sooo excited. I think we got there just after 11, by 11.45 still no show, then a few minutes later over strolls jasmine and aladin with loads of ppl chasing after them, they came across to the girls took there hands and took them over to the meet n greet place. They crouched down with the girls talking to them about their story etc for about 5 minutes,they told the crowd to stay back, they then got everyone to move for a photograph, and asked the girls to pose with them.


IMG_1670 by simplyshaz, on Flickr


IMG_1675 by simplyshaz, on Flickr

It was an 'amazing' moment for the girls,one i dont thimk that they will forget They had previously had a lot of bad experiences with the so called meet n greets, as they would get in line to wait and then just keep getting shoved about out of the way while other folk shoved there kids (or themselves in) so quite often i told the girls to come away and leave it, which upset them a few times,but i wasnt having them shoved about.


IMG_1779 by simplyshaz, on Flickr


IMG_1760 by simplyshaz, on Flickr


IMG_1759 by simplyshaz, on Flickr

We watched the parade and dreams again and then went to cafe micket at 9.15 pm. (very busy) DD was once again besdie herself as minnie was there, and she still hadnt seen her or gotten her autograph.



IMG_1838 by simplyshaz, on Flickr

dd is the 1 on the right lol


IMG_1835 by simplyshaz, on Flickr

Not as much interaction with characters as the earlier sitting the previous evening, and we felt rather rushed, but still worth it

Day 4 (final day)
The girls REALLY wanted to meet one of the princesses. It was showing a wait of 75 mins , so we waited and waited....eventually after 2 HOURS we got to the front where they still wouldnt tell you which the princesses were and you couldnt choose which one you went too either, they told you who you had to see
Anyhow the girls got snow white


IMG_1885 by simplyshaz, on Flickr

Def not worth the 2 hour wait really, especially on our last day, as after that they didnt even get to do anymore rides, it was just too busy.


All in all a great trip Sad to come home....sooo want to go back now haha


IMG_1726 by simplyshaz, on Flickr

LOW POINTS
The usual pushing n shoving when it came to shuttle busses and the meet n greets.
The weather, cold n wet

Glad you had a great time! wonder how many times we walked past each other without knowing!

I can't seem to get your pictures to load hope I can see them soon!

Whereabouts were you sat in Cafe Mickey on the Sunday? We were there at 6.15 as well, in the outside canopy area. We only had Mickey, Donald & Goofy come to our table while we were there. We did see Pluto & Tigger as well but they never made it round to us!

We also queued two hrs for Princess Pavillion - luckily, we saw Ariel. In the other room was Sleeping Beauty who we'd already seen at Auberge.. we had a lucky escape there!

Hi Panda How did your trip go? did your dd enjoy her birthday?
In cafe mickey we were sat right at the mack of the room, opposite the main doors. it was the first time we have been in cafe mickey and we enjoyed it that much that we went back again on the tuesday evening, that was a 9.15 sitting though (in future i will only do the 6.15 sitting i think) My dd has said that she wants her birthday at dlp and to go to cafe mickey lol I dont know whats going wrong with my photos, what am i doing wrong
I bet we did walk past each other several times lol
