Fabulous 1st day! Sorry you were so tired at Cali Grill. I've eaten there once and loved it! You'll have to schedule it for your Disneymoon.

I Was literally falling asleep during that meal. Rubbing my face and eyes constantly and just not being as active as I'd have liked. Still the flatbread was ok, nothing special but I do remember the steak being very tender and juicy. We will definitely be eating here again next year. The view of Hallowishes was the BEST!, could see everything up there

I'll let her post the 'news' tomorrow morning since it's her idea.

LLT is still family style with characters for dinner, its just lunchtime that's not character. We tried dinner on our first trip and loved it, the food was good too. It was the first time I had experienced Disney mash (soft and creamy) and was obsessed for the rest of that trip with mash

Exciting news coming up

We defo will go for CG as we have decided to upgrade to the DxDP again

I don't feel so bad this time consuming lots of food as this trip I didn't put on any weight at all (which was a plus), think it was all the walking we did, burned everything right off. Now if only it could tone too

Disneyland Paris!!!

We are very excited as its been about four years since we were last there

We booked two nights at the Newport Bay Club staying on the Admiral Floor with a lake view. The hotel looks really lovely, very Yach/Beach Club esq.



Its gonna be a great mini break as its just after Christmas, there's lots of new things to see and experience and believe it or not I am actually looking forward to the weather at that time as it will make it even more authentic Am already preparing and browsing for coats and thermals

She is a bad influence on me, Disneyland Paris just never gets cheaper. I remember the last time we went we stayed at the Disneyland Hotel and managed to get a huge discount/saving on the room. When we were pricing it up a few nights ago, we looked at staying 2 nights for new years eve/day and the price for tickets and hotel alone was £1700 / $2700. CRAZY amount of money so we decided against that lol. Should be interesting to see how much the place has changed as there are lots of new rides, restaurants and characters. We plan on eating at Walts on Main Street and Inventions.

I cant wait to take loads and loads of photos

Delish looking food at Cali Grill -- so sorry you were knackered (LOVE that word by the way) to completely enjoy it. The view looks incredible! I love the looks of that chicken flatbread and had to read twice those were only your appetizers ..... the steaks look heavenly!!

Definately going to try and find a way to fit that in next trip.

WOW! That's awesome!!! We had seriously considered Disneyland Paris for our honeymoon. The castle there is so beautiful. (Eddie Izzard does a skit about how people in the USA don't appreciate old things and other countries have buildings that have been around for thousands of years and we just tear them down as soon as they start looking old. Anyway, he got onto how Disney came to Paris and built a castle and they said "We better make it a bit larger, they'll actually got them here!")

So excited to see that TR!! Maybe we'll go there for our 10th anniversary!

Hi and

It is naughty really, as we shouldn't be going on short mini breaks right now, what with our wedding, moving out and the Disneymoon. But such is the Disney addiction

Stick around for the TR as I will defo be doing one when we get back.

Its gonna be so much fun. Am going to book our dining reservations tomorrow, just need to work out times and such first Get this, normal park hours are 9:30am at the mo and hotel guests can enter the park 2hrs before, meaning we get in at 7:30am!!!

I would highly recommend Cali the food is fantastic and the view is phenomenal to watch the fireworks.

Updates take a while to actually put together, there's all the uploading and typing and making sure you don't loose what you typed etc So I tend to update more in the evenings when I get a chance, as lunch hours fly by too quickly for me

I think I might incorporate a mini PTR into this TR and the same for TR as the DLRP TR's on the UK Forum are weird, people update each day in separate threads, rather than posts

Stick around for the TR, I am sure it will convince you to defo go sooner, if not for your 10 Anniversary

I still prefer Cinderella's Castle to Sleeping Beauty's, but it is pretty and you can actually go inside this one properly and also see the dragon at the bottom too

Actually, there no longer are characters at LTT for dinner (they stopped that over a year ago).

Your dinner at Cali Grill looks great, especially that cake for Dave's birthday.

Your news for the trip to Disneyland Paris is wonderful.
