Third Solo Pre Trip and Trip Report

Ok - it is a little early but now that my plans are finalized I can start the pre trip prep!

To skip to the Trip Report go to page 3!

When - Nov. 8-12th
Where - 3 nights Magic Circus, 1 night Hilton Charles de Gaulle Airport
Why - CHRISTMAS OF COURSE!!!

I wasn't sure if I was actually going to be able to do this trip as visa laws are changing here and I thought I might have to head back to Texas two months earlier than planned. But happily I was able to extend and am leaving as planned for Texas Nov. 12th! I am so looking forward to Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years with family!

So the plan is to see the Christmas decorations at DLRP before heading home!! I arrive Nov. 8th for three nights at the Magic Circus, then the last night at CDG before my very short direct flight home (10 1/2 hours). I usually flight direct from Turkey - it takes three flights and 24 hours - so a direct 10 1/2 hour flight sounds heavenly to me!

What I want to do - ALL THE CHRISTMAS STUFF OF COURSE - I have never been at Christmas before so really haven't a clue what will be happening - so please advise!!! I am soooo excited!! (Especially as we get no Christmas goodies here really).

Oh yes -we must do the Christmas Disney dance ! Have a great trip!!!

Unfortunately no news on the hat - they never got back to us - - so I am guessing they never found it. It has been a year now and I imagine they have new designs - but I do think next time I am at WDW I'll be looking for it - .

I'm excited as I'm going the same time as you (but in the Sequoia) so if you want to meet up shout me - i'm a shareholder so get a discount on the restaurants, which might come in handy as you are on a solo trip! It might be nice for you if you wanted to join my and my daughter for a meal if you are eating alone too! P.M me if you want to swap details

I'll write up my pretrip report soon, I'm trying to hold off as I can ramble on and on, and my poor friends are all ready putting cotton wool in their ears

Just thought, as you are flying back home, you can be my guest in Salon Mickey one morning if you would like! That would totally add the edge to your trip!!
