Thanks The slipper was a total surprise and really sweet and he chose the perfect time and restaurant to give it to me too

So mad the person who took this pic decided to squat!! Grrr, I wanted the background, silly!



Anyway, glad you were able to see the fireworks! That looks soooo awesome! And did Dave have that glass slipper arranged for you!?!? How awesome is he?!
Its such a great table right, secretly I think all the two tables are in the best locations (as you will see later on in the report).

The fireworks were awesome and to see them up close was amazing. Disney fireworks are like my new favourite thing

What a wonderful CRT dinner! That's the first time I've seen Ariel there. I'll have to remember that tip about getting the signatures on the invitation - that would be a lovely keepsake.
Me either, was a wonderful surprise Watching the fireworks over the carousel was pretty cool and it was also cool seeing where some of the fireworks are actually set off too.

That's the first time we have ever seen Ariel for a picture. Defo use your invite for signatures, is a really cool souvenir to take home

We've never eaten at the Castle and I'm not sure we will, but I sure enjoyed seeing your photos with the Princesses and your meals. Your firework pictures are terrific...what a great table you got.
Thanks They were lovely surprises and that cake and slipper was delish, although I almost didn't want to eat the slipper it looked so perfect

You should defo try CRT, the food is average for what it is (but still good all the same), we just really wanted to eat there for the experience of being inside the Castle and it was fantastic

It really is worth the 2TS, just to be able to eat inside the castle is amazing and if you snag a fireworks time adr even better

We were about an hour into the meal and there was no sign of the slipper so I was starting to freak out lol. Sophia was the one who helped me order it and I know she was told it would be there when we got to our seats, so when it wasn;t I panicked!

I 'excused' myself and ran downstairs (yes, ran) to the check in desk and asked about it, they told me it was on the reservation and they would remind our server (who was brilliant by the way, she was friendly, helpful and very good at making us feel relaxed. I just can't remember her name now). I didn't think I would enjoy myself at all but the meal was good, the experience was great and I got a cool sword to keep as well :D

Hey guys, good morning from disney world! I'm sitting out on the balcony right now with a cup of coffee (waiting for everybody to get their butts out of bed) and just got all caught up. The glass slipper was so awesome and I would have been loosing it if it wasn't there too but the way they brought it out looks like it couldn't be more perfect. I can't wait to see more updates! You guys are making it easier for me to not skip out on a bus by myself and wait for everybody else to catch up at the parks :0)

What a wonderful night!! - made extra special by the fireworks and romantic touches I ordered the chocolate slipper for DGrDs b'day lunch and she LOVED it.
We have lucked into that table (and the one next to it) many times - in fact when the kids and I were seated in the back corner last summer, we didn't complain for a moment - we reminded ourselves how much the families at 'our' window tables were loving their view.
I'll have to remember about that engraved glass slipper - DSon-in-Law is also very romantic and would love to surprise DD with a gift like that. You two remind me of them - too cute!! Loving the TR and the pics.

Hiya how is the World? Bet it looks beautiful all decked out for Christmas

I would have been the same too if it was the other way round, but then knowing me I would ring the day before to make sure that everything was going ok being all control/planning freaky

Hope you are having a great time, make sure you let me know when you start your TR when you get back

Looks like you guys had just an awesome experience at CRT. The photos you took of the fireworks are just amazing. I have never seen any like that before so they were just Wow! What a great time it must have been.

Loved the slippers. How romantic.

Thank you for sharing this special night.

Thank you and thank you for reading along

The firework pics came out quite well, we don't have a SLR yet but the setting we used came out pretty well. I think at one point though the restaurant put the lights back on and we got a glare, but it wasn't too bad.

Disneyland Paris

Hey All

Hope we are all doing ok.

So I thought that I would incorporate a PTR for DLRP into the thread. Have just got off the phone with dining and made our reservations. So excited

I'll do dining first and then let you know day by day what we are hoping to do.

For arrival day dinner will be at

Walt's American Restaurant

Quite looking forward to eating here as it's in the Disneyland Park (MK) and apparently you can get a good view of the parade if you are seated near the window.

Next up for Day 2 is

Inventions

A character buffet with an amazing array of food. Dave showed me some pics from someone's review and the food looks soooooooo good!

Last up for departure day is a personal favourite of ours

Cafe Mickey

Looking forward to eating here again and also seeing what new characters will be wandering around.

So that's dining all sorted out. We added a meal plan on in the end as when we worked out for paying OOP it was too expensive, although either way is, at least we save some money with the plan

Will try and get a day by day plan down for you soon

I was pretty happy I got a sword lol, I didn't think I would get one :D

I am excited for Paris now because I have just been looking at character hunt type websites and they have Angel from Lilo & Stitch cartoon series in the parks!!! She looks awesome so we will try to grab her for a picture. Oh and they have Elvis Stitch, Dance party stitch (headphones etc), Cowboy Stitch and Santa Stitch

They have loads and loads of Stitch merchandise so I am thinking we need bigger suitcases as we were just going to take our Disney World ones, but seeing what I have seen, we will need lots more room :D

Also Robin Hood as well, been waiting aaaaages to get a pic with him

Finally had a chance to get caught up- your trip is going so well!

Hadn't given much thought to CRT before, but now you've got be thinking I should give it a try!

I don't know anything about DLRP, so it's very interesting to hear details of your trip planing!

I love your plans for dining! I didn't get to do any sit down restaurants while we were there except for the two that were in our hotel. Every time we passed Cafe Mickey, they were jammed full of people! Definitely taught me that I need to prepare better the next time I visit. I was very out of my element having never been there before.
