Those of you who are a million times more creative than I am. Going to a fancy dress event in a few months with a theme of "Face the music" funny enough it's with a load of musical societies. Anyway costume ideas for "face the music" theme anyone?

One last run around Disney Village.

Day 5, part 4:

So when I left you we were at the Disneyland Hotel for the opening of the House of Goodies. Here's the ingredients in case anyone wants to make their own lol:


Belle's Book and the Beast's Rose:

We left the Disneyland Hotel admiring the scenery on the way:

and we headed for the Disney Village one more time:

We stopped at World of Disney to admire the far side of it. I took more pics of the carvings on the wall:




Lookie there's the Studios water tower:

and to give you an idea of just how close everything is in Paris. There's Minnie outside World of Disney but if you look in the window you can see the reflection of the studios water tower:

I went in to get another pin and spotted this cute magnet as well:

The Disney store was open now so we went over to see if I could find the rude CM and Momma wanted glasses as well. I took pictures of the ceiling decorations and some of the merchandise in between trading the last pins I had:






Momma then decided she wanted food before we went to the airport. About the same time it started raining really heavy with thunder and lightening so we made a dash to McDonalds and got soaked on the way. We couldn't really complain though because we had four and a half completey dry days which was very lucky. It was cold but dry. We both got happy meals in McDonalds very exciting:

When we came out it was dark and the trees were lit up:

We stopped to pick up a merange each before we said goodbye to the Disney Village:

and went back to our hotel to pack away everything we had bought:

Once I had packed everything away I left Momma to mind the cases while I went wandering around the lobby taking pictures:

The not so exciting children's play area in the lobby:

It's huge I know!!!

Next up: Farewell Disneyland

We are back from Florida and I'm playing catch up again.


What a lovely birthday cake...how very sweet.

I'm glad the show was a success.

Love the photos of the hotel...very pretty. And glad you got to meet most of the characters.

Was in HHI last week so I'm not completely caught up but just want to say that the DL hotel looks beautiful - especially decorated for Christmas.

Nothing wrong with a MCD's happy meal. Sometimes it just hits the spot!

I know it was ridiculously small like. But then the bar was right beside it so handy I guess for parents that want a few drinks and the kids can amuse themselves there for about 5 seconds

Farewell Disneyland

Day 5, part 5:

So when I left you before we were waiting in the hotel reception area for Shakira to arrive (for those arriving late to the trip report, his name probably wasnt Shakira but on the way from the airport to the hotel the taxi driver played the same three Shakira songs on repeat for an hour.) I took a wander around the reception to take pictures and down to the hotel gift shop:
I want lights like these in my room:




I may have picked up one more friend in the gift shop that I had been undecided about while I was in the Disney Village earlier in the day. We had also got some of those little meringues before we left the Disney Village this was mine:

Shakira arrived around this time as well so we headed to the airport. The drive to the airport seemed a lot longer going back to the airport than it was when we were going to the hotel. Once we checked in we had an expensive drink, Momma had tea and I had sprite that cost 3.99. I took out my meringue to eat and it was all flattened but still yummy. We took a wander around the shops at the airport while we were waiting as well:
I found Disney:

Cool French stuff:



We went through the security and Angel was sitting on my hand luggage as we went through the passport control like so:

The girls checking the passports were commenting on how cute he was. Then I took him off to go through security and the lady police officer took him as if she was going to take him off me. She was only messing though she just thought he was so cute she wanted to take him home with her. Momma told her how Angel had been all over the world I sat down beside what we thought was the gate while Momma went to see if someone would let her into the duty free area which had just closed. I was sitting beside this screen:

I noticed people kept walking down the entrance way and I was wondering what was going on so when Momma came back we went for a walk and discovered we weren't at the gate at all. We did eventually find it and third time lucky the flight was actually leaving on time. This was our third trip to Paris, we had been in 2002 and 2003 with the dancers and both times we went something happened and our flights got delayed until the following day. It was quite funny really because there was two planes that the dancers went on both years and both years Momma and I were in the group that got stuck in Paris. Anyways we boarded the flight:

The flight attendants were hilarious. They were all joking about something among themselves as people were boarding the flight and one of the guys kept saying things like there are only 70 people on this plane so choose your seat and then you can play hide and seek if you like as there will be that many seats free. Then when they turned the lights off for take off he said there was a light in the panel above your head for reading but just in case you're still scared of the dark hold the hands of your fellow passengers. Momma said she had heard the woman across from her giving out to them for not smiling so she thought that's why they were being so smart. I thought they were funny. Momma went to sleep for the flight home and I watched Madagascar. We got back to Ireland at 10.30pm. I took some pictures of Ireland all lit up:



Momma went to visit her friend in Dublin before we headed home. We got home at about 1am to a very cold house. We weren't to sad about this Disney holiday coming to an end as we were both so sick of all the rude people we had encountered. We loved the Disney parks and enjoyed our time there but the rude people were just annoying. The next day my doggies came home and I took some pictures of the souvenirs I got.
These were the pins I had traded for the last day we were there:

Our park tickets:

I bought a cd of the music from the parks and when you opened it, it was a bit scary because the cd was kind of hidden and you got this pop up:

I did find the cd under the pop eventually. Angel with all his new French friends:

Momma bought this for her friend as a present. I asked her if I could take a picture of it before she gave it to him because I thought it was cool and remarked how it mentioned the location of all the Disney parks. This is now on our fridge and her friend never got it :


And so we have reached the end of the "Turn on the heat before I turn into a Yeti!" trip
