Dribble Monkeys 1st Trip to DLRP - Trip Conclusion

Dribble Monkeys 1st Trip to DLRP

5th-10th October 2008

Trip Conclusion

We had an amazing holiday full of highs and highers. I loved seeing Kacee's face on the rides such as IASW and POTC and we thoroughly enjoyed watching Kacee running through Alice's Labrynth.

The Dream passes worked amazingly for us, not only were they only 10 euros dearer than the normal park tickets (would have been cheaper if the moron hadn't forgotten the discount vouchers!) and we saved so much money (Over 80 euros on just merchandise that we bought in the park)

We have some amazing memories and some wonderful photos of our trip. We have lots of things to treasure too. I came back with two Mickey Mouse t-shirts, a hoody, a Pirate Mickey Mouse teddy that Kacee bought me and a classic Mickey teddy and 2008 pin badge from my beautiful wife. Kacee came home with 3 t-shirts, a coat, a jumper, 3 teddies, 2 cars and a t-shirt and trouser set. Ellie came back with an Eyeore teddy and a Minnie Mouse t-shirt from Kacee and I, a Halloween pin badge, a DLRP t-shirt that she bought and a new handbag.

We'd love to go again as soon as possible however I think that we will have to wait until our new arrival comes in February 2009.

I hope that you have enjoyed reading about our trip and hope that everyone who is going soon has as wonderful time as we did.

Thanks, I think we are going to stay at the Cheyenne next time. The Shack was ok but I was glad that we were only really sleeping there, there was a family from England there who were on site nearly all week and they looked so miserable. If we could get the campsite at the same price I'd stay there again however I'd never pay the £300-400 per week that they want!!

Hopefully the new arrival will love Mouse and all the gang just as much! You've got to get 'em while they're young though, so I bet you'll be back before you know it!

Loved your TR!

Thanks for a great trip report & photos. I am very impressed at how quickly you got it all posted & all the work that went into it. I'm glad you had a great time & that Kacee did too. I am going in 5 days & can only hope that my DD2 (22 mths) will be the same! I admire your stamina, getting up so early every morning to make the most of EMH - don't think I'll be as organised! I hope you get to make good use of your APs & good luck with the new baby.
