Can't wait to find out what you do next.

I don't think I have ever seen a gingerbread house with a smoking chimney - what a lovely touch

Friday 5th December Continued

I made my way down to Rixs Bar at about 4.15pm, this was our first scheduled meet and the first time we would meet all the panellists and our team leaders Laura and Leanne. More hugs and introductions were made and after a little while we were led into the bar. The first thing I spied was a bright light attached to a camera OMG I didn’t realise we’d be chucked in at the deep end. I walked in with such a silly smile on my face, which kept appearing every time the camera was around I was introduced to several non-panel members and it really is hazy who they were or what they did within the Disney Company but they were very pleasant. At one point I laughed a bit hard and chucked my head backwards not realising the camera man was behind me, wow that camera is hard because that hurt One of the panellists, Kay, had bought us all snowman Mickey ears with Mom embroidered on the back, she is such a sweetie and some of us posed wearing them.



After a few drinks and some nibbles we were led to our private bus, the driver was Tim who picked me up from the airport the day before We were driven to MK, entering via the back entrance, all of us were amazed to see behind the scenes and were soon told that photos weren’t allowed!!!!




A guide met us and led us to………………………….

















Tour…………………………………..



















Cinderella Castle Suite!!!!!!!!!


We were split into 2 groups as the suite isn’t large enough to hold our party, which was up to about 25 people. Also the elevator would never have fitted us all in! I was in the first group and we were all so excited to view such an amazing place. I took tons of photos so I hope I don’t bore you!

In the lobby downstairs



As you get out of the elevator upstairs.




The actual suite.
