I absolutely love the striped shirt pictures! How fun are those!

Ah, Notre Dame. I love that place. You are REALLY making me want to go to Paris! Not that I see it in my future but a girl can dream. Bummer about the rude sales clerk, I can honestly say both times I've been to Paris I never had that experience but it does happen.

Then again it could happen in New York.

What a wonderful afternoon and evening, I'm definitely getting the Europe bug reading your TR.

Great update, Sheree! I love the pictures of you and the girls with the berets and baguette.

The church is stunning. So, so pretty.

You girls and your photo shoot! Hilarious.

Did you notice the hidden Mickeys on the outside of Notre dame?

No - have another look at the pictures and see if you can spot them


Did you happen to go round the back of Notre Dame? The back of it is so beautiful and different - the front is very square and angular - the back is totally opposite

Love this update! Notre Dame is truly stunning. Europe is full of beautiful churches. I like the pictures of you and the girls!
Yes you should!
Book early too! Did I tell you we're going on 8/19/13? I think you should come on our cruise.

Thanks - we did see our share of churches. We had so much fun acting silly! We did a lot of that this trip!

Rude French lady getting made of you for just trying to ask for directions.

Those pictures of you and the girls posing are adorable. What a great idea.

Boo to the broken hot tub. Sounds like the pool at the treehouse villa.
Oh, Mary Ellen - you would LOVE it! So beautiful!
Yeah, I wasn't going to let her bug me, but jeez, try to be a little helpful. I tried to speak your darn language!
I decided it was a sign that I wasn't meant to go in that hot tub. Probably full of gross germs anyway. I know you understand the pain though with your treehouse pool! That would bother me more - not having the pool when it was hot out!

It is a bit odd. The CMs at DLP spoke as much English as anything else. Sometimes I would try the French, and sometimes I just said English please?
Thanks - I've got a zillion pictures!

I honestly don;t recall anyone being rude to us except for at Disney. They just did not care. In Paris itself everyone but 2 ladies who worked in a cafe spoke English to us.

Can't wait to see the pics from when you go back at night.
You should definitely go into Notre Dame next time. So much to see, we felt rushed because of the service and didn't want to be disruptive. of course, I'd go back to Paris anytime! I just need someone to pay for it!!
I thought the Disney CMs were less, how shall I put it, less "Magical" than at WDW. They didn't seem to all have that "I love working here" attitude and it showed.

Thanks! It was fun.
ND was just amazing - I thought it was gorgeous and had so much beautiful art and architecture! I just wish my pictures turned out a little better - settings and lighting are still like a foreign language to me!

Yes, you need to go to Paris - lots of cute cafes, yummy food, beautiful buildings!! I think I'd rather go back to Paris than to NY (I've been there once but didn't see a lot of the touristy things).
Europe is a bit contagious...

That's too funny! I don't think we noticed when we were there!
Dang - no we didn't go around the back side! I'll have to look at pictures of it though. How cool that it is designed that way.
I think I needed you to be my tour guide!

I think it looks really beautiful from that angle

Absolutely loving your trip report .... it is so interesting to experience Paris and London , and indeed Disneyland Paris through the eyes of a non-European. It sounds like you had an absolutely wonderful time and enjoyed every moment .... shame the weather was disappointing though ... it does that a lot over here.
Looking forward to more .. your photos are fantastic !

Thanks! We did catch a glimpse of it from the river, but of course, it was raining so you couldn't see hardly anything.

Thank you and We did really love it and just today I was in Bath and Body Works and saw their new line of Paris scents and thought about how fun our trip was!!
I'm hoping to get another update up tonight or tomorrow. I have lots more photos - some even have sunshine in them!!!

Sheree, I am all caught up again!

I love that blue and white coffee mug in the upper left corner in the first of the souvenir pics. That would have had to come home with me.

How fun that you were able to take a boat ride down the Seine AND you were able to see Notre Dame!

I adore your striped shirts and beret shots -- those are great!!!

Well, now that you're caught up, I'll post another update!
I saw too many things I liked - the good part of being indecisive, is that I ended up not buying that much stuff - I just couldn't decide!! I'm getting better, but I did remember that I had to get everything home somehow too! That stopped me from over buying.
Even in the rain - the boat ride was cool. I just wish I could remember al the things they said about the buildings and history.

That striped shirt is one of my favorites - even when I'm not in France! HA!

Thursday March 8


This morning we went down to breakfast and got to eat in the Parkside Diner, the other restaurant at the hotel. It was all the same food, so we filled up on our usual!
French Stacy



Would you look at that? The sun is out today!!


On the ground they had these markers that showed all the Disney parks and dates of opening. I thought it was cool. Sarah just wanted me to take a picture of the horse.




The original


I thought I got them all, maybe not!
We decided to head back over to Disneyland today and experience the park in the sunshine – LOTS of pictures today!


I think that was the actual time!


I didn't see any names I recognized. Go figure.

Town Square


Just in case...Ou es toilette? Right here!


Main Street

Still hard to read the windows.
But I found some amusing ones!



I think this was off to the side of Main Street and on the right it looks like a tunnel - that's the "arcade" where you can walk along behind the shops. There's bathrooms back there too if I recall.

This was opposite of the arcade



Cont. in next post...

cont.
Here's a better shot of the "Discovery Arcade". I guess it leads toward Discoveryland! Duh.


I love these clever signs!

Continuing on down Main Street - AH - the pretty castle!!!



Not 100% sure what the "sweets for ladies" are...



Cute little area to eat off to the side of Main Street.


Window shopping

This is where we got the fabulous croque monsieur sandwich!

You can also call it a self portrait! HA - I was just pausing and snapping pictures of EVERYTHING as we walked down Main Street!


Would Sarah be able to get ice cream here EVER?

It's not looking so good.


Too early for Casey's I guess!

Fun trolley!

Sarah would just want to ride the horse!

It would be such a great picture without those green walls...


Off to the right there's an information board.
What should we do first?

This is to the right of the board - kind of like where the Plaza and the Tomorrowland Terrace are at WDW.



I think more castle pictures are a good idea!

Sarah, maybe you could move a little closer?

That's better!!



These type of signs were all around the green walls. I don't know what they were doing in there- but I'm guessing it was prep for the 20th anniversary celebration coming up!


I like this one!



More castle pictures coming up...
