The spa looks really nice! I wish we could get 3 week spa stay as part of our medical benefits.

Awesome parade pics! Everything looks so festive!

Love the pics, Karin.

I am so sorry Tom is still suffering with back pain. The Spa looks very peaceful - do hope they have been able to help the pain. Gentle hugs

How is Tom doing at the spa? It's probably too soon to tell, but does he feel a difference? What gorgeous views at the spa though!

Great pictures of the parade!

All insurance companies here pay for that kind of treatment. 3 weeks every two years.
Tom really enjoys it. It is like an all expenses paid vacation. AND he gets his salery on top of it as well.

No fun being stuck with the teaching schedule. But at least we have 9 weeks paid vacation in the summer.
Our Paris trip was really nice - we enjoyed it a lot - can't wait for our summer visit - 9 nights/10 days of Disney fun.

Thanks Christine!
He will have to live with "some" back pain, but at least they were/are able to help him a bit. He feels really good at the moment and is enjoying his stay there very much.

It was such an improvement from last years "small" parade! And yes, they dress up the characters really well in their festive attire. It IS cold here, so I guess they need to be dressed apropriately.

Lesha, thanks for asking. He is doing pretty well. He gets up to 7 treatments a day and has a pass that allows him to use the huge spa (indoor and outdoor pools) for free.
It's hard to get a hold of him as he seems to always be doing something.

I spent my last two weekends there too and it was amazing. I have a few photos to post once I am done with replies.

I am glad you liked the parade pics. I was a bit worried as there were so many, but they were just too much fun to leave some out.

Tom is doing well and his back is much better at the moment. Not so sure when he goes back to hauling big crates of mail around.

I'm surprised - I wonder why they didn't have them before Parades and fireworks are so classic Disney!

It was/is not completely owned by Disney and this being Europe they had a lot of things in their way. There was a "fireworks ban" for some years (they were only allowed "so many" fireworks a year). Now, Disney is buying back shares to get the majority again and we have seen many "Disney changes" like those parades - the fantastic Disney Dreams show and more rides at the studios. I was always jealous how there are daily fireworks in the US parks, now we are getting our share as well.

Oooh, if DLP gets more "Disney Changes" I might have to think about a trip back to that side of the world again!

Great to see the holiday pictures. I know about being busy, I've not been on the boards since Feb.28. I haven't had very much internet access since then.

It's great being able to go to a spa for physical therapy, no insurance coverage like that here!
