We now had about 45 minutes of spare time so a few of us ran to ToT. This was really great, the first time I’d ridden in the dark and so much fun. My lack of sleep was again affecting me and I did think that maybe ToT wasn’t a good choice of ride but I was fine

Once we finished riding we literally had 2 minutes until we had to be at the Hollywood Brown Derby so we speed walked it, arrived all breathless and they were still waiting to be seated

We were shown to a huge long table and I sat with some of the 2008 panellists. A little way through our meal our special guest arrived, his name was Gary and he was hilarious, unfortunately he sat at the other end of the table to me so I missed all his jokes, but I could hear the laughs

After quite a long meal we were led back to American Idol but this time we went inside! BTW DHS was now shut and it was so lovely walking round an empty park, I could so get used to that No photos were allowed inside AI but I can say, having never watched the show, that it’s amazing, so life like and the opportunities it’s going to give talented singers is amazing!

We crawl back onto the bus and finally get back to CSR about 11.30pm, it’s been a long busy day. As I enter my room I see…………..



Then…………


Then I see the bed……….



Then the wall……..


The bedside cabinet……



The other bed……..


And finally Tinks shadow on the door………


This was the label on the box……


And inside the box………..




You could literally hear scream after scream coming from Casitas 1

As you probably know next year is the Year of Celebrations and this is one of the packages you can book. It really was fantastic and would be a wonderful surprise for a family. We were the first people to get the Celebration treatment and if you have the money I would highly recommend it, it didn’t do much to help me get to sleep though

They actually gave us all a prepaid box to ship things home, everyone shipped their dirty washing, but I didn't want to chance import duties, especially on dirty washing but I managed to fit everything in my 2 cases

OMG Jo! All I can say is WOW WOW WOW....

I would take it home and re-create it all over again in my bedroom - DH would get an earful if he touched any of that......

You must have felt like a million dollars.

Can't wait for the next installment
