Pretty isn't it?












I started playing around walking on the stones and with me and my terrible balance apparently Dave thought it was amusing to capture this on camera















Dave decided he would do a self portrait and set the timer, here's the result...


Dumbo, I was like I could have done that for you So I did




A daughter and her mother asked Dave if they would take their pic with the castle, so while he was doing that I played around with his camera





The daughter very kindly offered to take our picture.


Am gonna leave it there for now, as I have to get ready for work.

Enjoy your Monday

Well it may be Monday morning but I have to say that waking up to the treat of looking at your DLP pictures made it a little less painful!

Cute hat you tried on, I hope you bought it. Disneyland Paris is beautiful. I wish some of the stuff that they have over there could be put in DisneyWorld. You can tell on your faces that you were blissfully happy Glad the weather was nice for y'all and no one was sick this time.

Amazing pictures, and you both look so happy!

I love how DL Paris has such a fun mix of French and English signage everywhere.... granted I'll have to brush back up on my HS grammar before we go! Someday........

BTW - Love PLL and haven't yet watched Revenge, but it's in the DVR queue!

Thanks I did not get the hat no, next time I wish some of the stuff they had was available in WDW, would be sooooo much cheaper!

Thanks DLRP is a lot more themed and I think the only park that has the most imagineering in it. The details on literally everything is amazing!

Morning All

How are we all doing?

Thought I would start the morning off again with another update for you

Last we left off we had just left Agrabah and taken some more photos in front of the castle.

Next we headed over to Discoveryland.





We stopped off in one of the stores to look around, gotta say there wasn't that much Stitch worthy merchandise this year





Can you get this in WDW?






Browsing done, we went back outside to get more pics. I love this, is so cute and what a way to liven up a normal everyday type sign.







Buzz was down for a refurb this trip, so we didn't get to try it out to see what the difference was from the WDW ride.



There is a story behind what this is, but its too early for me to remember. Dave maybe you can chime in?







We sat down for a bit, as my feet were starting to hurt. It may not look like it from the photos, but we had done a major amount of walking since we got there. Disneyland Park is a huge park! Anywho, back to the pics, we sat down and messed around a little taking pics. Note you can just about see us in the mirror?







We stumbled across Wall:E and Eve






Not sure if they light up at night, but would be v cool if they did right



Cntd...

We walked into the Star Wars shop and I found some bargains in there on sale. Stitch Zodiac Sign keyrings (pics later). We also saw these vinyls.



I have started to collect these ones



I was getting pretty knackered by now and we decided to head back to the hotel to chill and then head back out for dinner. Here is a pic of the lobby. Our room was very conveniently located on the first floor and a few doors down from the beginning of the corridor. Score!



Rested and hungry, we decided to head over to the Disney Village. I wanted to get a shot of the hotel in the evening as its so prettily lit up.



Dinner tonight was at...









I ordered the Hawaiian BBQ





Dave went for the Earl Club





These were delicious and really hit the spot. Gotta say Earl here is a lot more smooth running than DTD, but then it does help when it isn't crazy busy :Teeth:

Bellies full, we walked around for a little bit and looked around the shops. I love this display in the art store.





Then it was back to the hotel to chill and have a nice relaxing bath

Am gonna leave it there for now, work beckons. Have a good day everyone


Next Up: Our first proper day at Disneyland Park

Nothing better to start your day with than an update from Stefy!

You got some great photos here .... and it looks like you had a REALLY empty park. It's much nicer that way, isn't it?

Love the photo of you and Dave in the mirror.

We love it that WE now got an EoS in DLRP too! The food is still wonderful and the restaurant itself is pretty too.

Can't wait for more ........

(hope work doesn't wear you out!)

Wow! Your resort that you are staying out is beautiful. So pretty all lit up at night.

Your sandwiches look really good too. I could go for one right now.

Aww thanks

We had an amazingly empty park, we were loving it

It was nice to be able to have Earl, as we didn't get to have it last year in WDW.

Thanks so much for the DLP updates and all of the pictures! DLP definitel has the best castle. Not only is it beautiful from the outside, but the "innards" are interesting as well!
