I hope you are both doing well!
I am really looking forward to your trip to Europe!! I just had two friends from the US visiting here and it is always great to be able to help people visiting Germany! Be sure to get in touch once you start planning, I can certainly help with coming up with an itinerary that makes sense (as in seeing interesting stuff without tiring yourself out).

Thanks for the good wishes! The trip was great. Getting back into normal life was a bit hard, especially since I started with a stomach bug...

But now summer has started (even though the weather is a mixed bag here) and I think before the trip is one year ago, I really should get this TR here finished!

Part 11: And the Rain finally finds us

The last update ended with us spending the time before park closing enjoying a deserted WWoHP...

And then when we left it started to sprinkle again and then it changed over into rain. It still wasn't 7pm, but we decided that we still wanted to have another look at the Christmas shop so, headed back to the Port of Entry in the rain...

There I got a huge shock because the one ornament I had really liked had sold out. But luckily, I found another very cute one. It was really cute on my tree last Christmas!

And then it was time to leave the park. However, that still wasn't the end of our Universal day. We still had a dinner planned at Tchoup Chop at the Royal Pacific Resort – one of Universal's resorts themed of South Pacific Islands.

But first we had to get there. We had retrieved our bags with our change of clothes from the lockers at the entrance and by now it was park closing, so a lot of people were coming out of the park, but it was also raining very heavily. I knew that we could walk and we had seen the start of the foot path this morning. It was also rather warm still. But it was definitely pretty wet. We also knew that we could take a boat (with a roof) to take us to RPR and we kind of knew where the boat would leave from. We kind of guessed that quite a few people would want to get on the boat... So – we decided to brave it and walk through the rain. We knew that we would get into our nicer (and dry) clothes at RPR anyway before dinner. So we took our umbrellas and walked along a very lovely path. At one point we met a very lonely guard (the bag check point for those coming from RPR) and he told us that it wasn't very far to the hotel. And it really wasn't. It would have been a beautiful walk if it hadn't been so wet. But even in the rain it wasn't too bad.

We did feel a bit awkward to walk into the lobby dripping wet, but immediately disappeared into the ladies room and when we reappeared we did look much more appropriate for the lovely hotel!

Up Next: Dinner at Tchoup Chop

I'm so glad you decided to finish the report. It is now so lang ago, I have the feeling I don't remember very much and I'm quite anxious to read the report and what YOU remember!

At least you had dry clothes! We had a similar walk ourselves to go eat at Jakes and poured into the RPH soaked. Cleaned up in the restrooms as best we could and...oh well! Next time it happened we did take one of those pedicabs, it was worth it.

It is a pretty walk though.

So glad you are finishing this!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And that you found an alternate ornament that worked.

It's great to see you on the DIS again Magdalene (and Katharina).

Sometimes getting caught in a rainstorm can make for a memorable vacation moment.

Yes, is there a new trip announcement coming up?

It was a very memorable moment!

And the restaurant review is coming in a moment!

Well, fortunately most of this has already been written long time ago - I just never got around to post it... But we will see what I remember about the rest of the topics I wanted to cover!

Katharina, you made those people all excited about nothing!!!

It is a past trip - and I have added it to my signature: look for the 2012...

I have tentative plans for my next Disney trip - for late spring 2013. My plans for Disneyland this fall seem not to become reality as a big work projects will need lots of attention in the fall. But, to make up for it, my plans for spring 2013 might include a cruise.

It is a very pretty walk. Made me want to stay at one of the Universal resorts next time. We did not see any pedicab around - I remember reading about them on your TR and if I had seen them, I would have suggested to take it.

I should get a picture of the ornament...

Hey, look! Magdalene and Katharina are back! Drinks all around!

Sorry you missed out on your Christmas ornament. And some more pictures of you looking like a drowned rat would have been helpful.

Ooh, a possible cruise! Is that your first?

Great to see you here again!

I haven't really been away, just not posting much...

I am now very happy with the alternative ornament I got, I really need to get it out to take a picture for this TR! And no way would we have wanted pictures of us all wet!!!!

The cruise would be my first! Ever! Not only on Disney. The longest I have been on a ship was when we took the ferry from Hamburg, Germany to Harwich, UK - a route which no longer is serviced. We departed in the late afternoon and arrived late morning. So I did get to sleep on the ship!
