Quick question for you, you mentioned that you are vegetarian and I wondered if you found plenty of options?

I have already noted your veggie burger at Annettes - I will def get one of those
I just can't help buying the outfits There was a pretty good choice of vegetarian food, more than I expected. I have said it was mostly rather heavy food, pasta, rissotto etc but very nice. I really enjoyed the Vegetable tart in Auberge mmmmm other than that I went to Annettes twice, Cafe Mickey where I had pasta but think I could've had a salad also and Inventions which I didn't enjoy but I am sure plenty of people really rate it. x

Me too, in fact it's all I can think about lol That's part of the fun being away for me is just eating all the yummy food. I usually have breakfast and indulge in a coffee and brownie for lunch mmmmmmm The brownies I had at DLP were fab, I was on a mission last time to try as many as I could

Day 5 .... Sunday .... Save the best for last

We'd done most of our packing before bed, none of us travel light! We finished off and headed for breakfast, it was served in the convention centre again and again we weren't there at the right time but this was no problem. Breakfast was great, I could've spent a good hour eating my way through it but dd was understandably impatient to get going. We collected our bags from the room and took them to the luggage drop at HNY before going to enjoy our last round of EMH.

It was looking to be a lovely sunny day and I was relieved our last wouldn't be dragged down by the rain. After doing the rounds at Discovery and Fantasy land we went to wait for the Studios to open. There were a few other people waiting and once the gates were open the characters got into position on the front lot, we went to have a cuddle with Mickey first up ....



then Stitch, he is just so much fun ...



I took dd to get changed in the toilets before a couple of go's on the Magic Carpets, this was one of dd's favourite rides as she loved being able to control what we did, much to my dismay lol

Next up dd enjoyed some time playing on the scream machines etc ....



We went for a wander around and really just took the time to enjoy the studios in the sunshine

We bumped into these guys, I love this picture, I always wanted to go to Disney as a child and these were the kind of images I would see on all the lovely brochures .... if only dd was looking at the camera lol



We'd decided to just take it as it came today and relax, dd wanted to queue to meet Sulley again. This went much better today the CM was fab and even had signed stickers for the autograph book, dd was most impressed ....



Now we were all starting to feel hungry so we sought out one of the vans in the Studios and picked up a couple of coffees, juice and some brownies mmmmmmm We pitched up on a bench and people watched in the sun. After just missing some of the more interesting characters yesterday dd was desperate to find some, I explained it wasn't guaranteed they'd come out but we agreed to hang out a while. Well we waited and waited after 45 mins dd was bored so we gave up and went to stretch our legs.

Day 5 cont......

A little deflated we walked toward Stitch Live, about half way there dd started to get excited, I looked up and saw none other than Snow White and Dopey heading our way The CM escorting them noticed dd dressed as Snow White and pointed her out, when they got level with us Snow White took dd by the hand and skipped her away to their spot ... dd was awe struck. Snow White was beautiful, she spent so much time talking to dd and spelling out Dopey's name for him tio sign her book, I had a bit of a mummy tear of joy



Suddenly the park came alive and so many characters were out, next we met Mulan and the Dragon (name?) .....



Then uh oh ..... Snow White's Evil Queen spotted dd she was great really scary in character, playing to the crowd about who is the fairest of them all. Luckily we were rescued by Gaston looking for Belle .... dd wouldn't even look at the queen lol



Gaston was brill, totally going for it with the crowd, he was lapping up dd curtseying for him and telling everyone that she's his number one fan, dd was really taken with him .... but oh no who's that coming????



Cruella eeek! She is so naughty!! She and Gaston carried on a little banter and took dd with them as they walked, Gaston was happily telling anyone who'd listen that dd thought he was the most handsome man in the land lol I had to cover dd's ears whilst Cruella was telling Gaston to 'thrust' for her

I think dd was terrified ....



We next met the most gorgeous Aladdin and Jasmine ...



and finally Ariel, she is truly a Princess absolutely divine ...



It was time for the characters to go, we were in shock it had been better than we could have dreamed and so much fun.

Satisfied dd's wish had been more than fulfilled we then went on to have her face painted which I'd promised her earlier in the week. I love the little set up with the dressing room style mirrors .....



It was a job well done but I have vowed after this never to get her face painted ever again, she rubbed it everywhere and just complained it was itchy sooooo money well spent

We left the Studios behind and went to Annettes for some lunch and I just had to have another veggie burger before we left. We were seated right away and although the place was full the service was steady and we were able to eat with plenty of time spare to get back to the Studios for Cars n Cars parade.

We had to stop off at the face painting to ask for wipes to remove dd's as by this point she was driving me nuts! It was really busy but we were able to get a good enough spot for the parade, there were a few of the selfish pushers and shovers where we were watching so they received my 'death glare' which worked

After the parade the characters came around signing autographs, Gaston recognised dd and continued his telling everyone dd was his number one fan and following him lol Ariel also remembered dd and came to say hi again, dd told her she'd missed Woody at the round up earlier in the week and Ariel just walked over the other side and dragged him away over to dd. We couldn't believe our luck, what a perfect princess she was.

We left the Studios behind after a totally awesome morning there and made our way back the the stage to watch the Showtime Spectacular one last time. As we'd seen it from every possible angle we figured the only place left was the back of the stage, thanks from our Dis tips This was a great move and we had an excellent time playing. Emile was so nice and no exaggeration spent the whole time playing with dd, he wrote her a beautiful long message in her autograph book ......



Stitch came to play, along with a few others and at the end dd finally got to meet Angel as she'd hoped .....



Our last stop would be OUAD parade and today we finally got our chance to see the princesses dance. We said our goodbyes to the park and dragged our feet through the village for some last minute shopping. We collected the luggage from HNY and went to wait for the VEA. I asked dd where her DS was to which she replied 'under the bed' I dashed back in and the conceirge desk was able to track it down, thankfully it had been handed in.

We got to CDG in plenty of time, unfortunatley only one man was checking all Air France flights and it was a sloooowwww process. Eventually we got our turn and the guy wouldn't let me check dd's case into the hold as it wasn't quite heavy enough, after lots of faffing about I said I would just take it as hand luggage. We got to security and there was a hold up ughhhhh ..... It turns out the hold up was me! Those of you paying attention will remember the gun from BBWWS well it was in dd's case ...whoops! I had to sign for it to be destroyed and dd was totally baffled why the armed police wanted her toy gun, I was embarrased and patronised being told I should've put it in the hold, well I did try but forgot that was in there

After that it was all ok. Disney had done something wonderful for us all, we were crazy tired but happier than ever, somehow I had been converted to a total Disney nut and I knew from day 1 we would be going back. HNY was perfect for us, EMH was a god send, we found the Studios to be way more of a feature than we'd planned, I rode some more rides than I can remember and loved them all.

Within 2 days of being home we were all booked up again

Such a great trip report

Your photos are wonderful and DD looks like a real princess in her dresses

Really great to hear about such great character interaction and I am sure that DD being dressed up really helped with that

Time to start planning your next trip

Thank you so much for your TR, I have enjoyed every second of it!!

I'm so chuffed that Disney has converted you as well!

Have to say, I am in total AWE of the photo of your DD with Mickey and Minnie in the studios - as you said, it looks like one of the photos you would find in a brochure! Absolutely adorable!
