I'm glad you're all enjoying my TR.

I was very lucky that the rest of the group were absolutely wonderful, so friendly and really funny and yes Mandy I couldn't resist the royal throne

Another update will be up soon

Friday 5th December completed

After our amazing tour we waited outside for the other group to have their tour, we were just in time for the lighting up ceremony, wow the Castle is awesome covered in lights, I’d seen photos but nothing could compare to real life! Whilst we were waiting I feel a little prod and it is Jen, she found me I also got to meet her lovely DH and her cute DS and DD. I had a photo with her children who are just adorable and Tink (her DD) was wearing the cutest dress! It was so funny after they left as a few “Moms” said how unbelievable it was that the person who lived the furthest away met someone she knew



Once the other group had finished we made our way to Crystal Palace, we made quite an entrance with our camera crew and people were all wondering who we were The table next to mine were interviewed, luckily I escaped that!!!!

We had some lovely food, although to be honest I was so tired I didn’t know whether I was eating breakfast, lunch or dinner The characters also visited us.



Doug (DisneyDad) & I


Oh yes one thing I haven’t said is that not only were the 16 new panellists there but several of the 2008 ones were too. Officially there to help us with our training were Bri, Beth and Heather. And unofficially were Kim, Michelle and Bret. Bret actually came and found us at CP which was great of him

We were then ushered to the front of the park where we had VIP viewing for the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party parade. The whole of the Main Street Station was reserved for us! There were also lots of cookies (not that I was hungry) and also drinks and amazingly alcohol Yep alcohol in the MK!!!!!




Whilst we were waiting for the parade to start a few of us, including me, were filmed chatting and we were a bit silly pretending to point at stuff and laughing, it was just visual no sound!

Laura then said that she had something special to announce, she had 2 bags, 1 with the 2009 names in and 1 with the 2008 names in. One lucky person from each bag would be chosen to spend the night in Cinderella Castle Suite The 2008 winner could choose their date but the 2009 winner would be staying there on Sunday night.

Beatrice was chosen as the 2008 winner and Cathy as the 2009 winner. It was so wonderful that Cathy’s name was chosen as she was the only panellist there with her family (she had already booked her trip before being selected) and she was in floods of tears telling them!

It was then time for the parade, which was wonderful but unfortunately my photos didn’t come out very well, this was the only half decent one.





We then had time for a little shopping before the fireworks and wow what an amazing view!





We now had about an hour of free time before the bus left at 11pm, I was literally asleep on my feet and at first decided that I would find a chair somewhere and chill, then I thought nah I may miss something The other “Moms” couldn’t believe I was still going!!!!

First stop was BTMRR in the dark and it was great, there were lots of screams and laughs. We then headed for Haunted Mansion but the queue was too long so we somehow ended up on Small World We chatted the whole way through and probably annoyed the rest of the boat, whoops. BTW I can’t get over how awake I look in this photo!



Our time was almost up so we headed back to our meeting place, I found a comfy post and almost fell asleep leaning on it After exiting the park via a secret back exit we were back to CSR by about 11.30pm.

Tomorrow starts with a working breakfast at 8.30am, hope I get some sleep!
