First Dream Castle Trip Report Complete

Hi Everyone,

I've been a bit out of the loop on the boards as I've been busy visiting family in Texas before returning to Turkey in a couple of weeks.


But now it is time to gear up and I am very much looking forward to staying at the Dream Castle for the first time on the way back. But I think this may be my last trip to DLRP at least for some time. After seven very nice years in Turkey, I will be moving back to the States this summer. And so I will most likely take my Disney fun at WDW since it will be only a 2 hour flight. (Trying really hard to resist booking AKL with my 40% off pin in May). I am happy about being so close to WDW but imagine I will miss DLRP as well. Can't have both being a hop, skip and a jump away now can we??

Oh well - so I will enjoy this my last DLRP trip for awhile. I am nervous about it being very cold. I've been here in balmy Texas for three months (Texas - think Orlando - about the same climate) and may not have the proper clothes with me as I am trying to take as little as possible. So not sure how quickly I can adjust!


So here is the plan-

Flight - Houston to CDG - arriving early morning
TGV train to DLRP - around 10am
Check into Dream Castle if possible - if not leave luggage and head for the parks. Lunch at Agrabah if open!

3 nights at Dream Castle - VEA shuttle to Orly - afternoon flight to Ankara via Istanbul.

I have most definitely gotten my money's worth from the annual pass and hope to pop in on the DLRP thread every now and again. Well - one more trip report to do I suppose!

It has been nice meeting all of "y'all" to use a little Texas speak.

Awwwww thanks - hope you have a good make up trip with much better weather!

Snow! Yay! How fun is that - yes such a rarity down here in the awful HOT part of the State. Hope they enjoy it!! I think it might have been down to freezing once or twice this winter where I am - today the high is 58 - Saturday will be 70. I will be looking forward to a little winter when I get back to Turkey - we usually have snow in February and March for sure. Funny how you miss cold weather when you don't have much of it.

I look forward to reading your trip report when you go - have to have some fun while I am packing up my house (aaack).

Flash Sale ?? Upgrade to DLH?

Ok - just a random thought with the flash sale starting tomorrow - do I look t see what it would cost to stay at the DLH??? I think that would be perfect with the cold weather and since it will be my last stay for the foreseeable future! But then again with costs of moving etc. doesn't seem exactly wise. Oh the temptation!!

Just checked the flash sale - nothing available for my dates - everything starts with arrivals on the 9th and I will be arriving on the 8th - no way to change that - . I did think about moving the next day but think I'd enjoy the trip more if I can settle in a bit and not move around. Oh well Dream Castle it is!!

A very good idea!!




It is cold here today - below freezing - amazing! Schools are already closed tomorrow because we are supposed to have ice and snow - - that is the South for you - close schools before the weather actually hits!

Hey - just getting me ready to land in Paris next week!

Packing, packing and more packing!! Starting to get excited now - haven't had much time to think about the trip. I think I'll be ready for a little Disney fun - just hope the jet lag doesn't hit me like a brick and I'm down before I can check into the hotel.
