Wait - Rosie - you are going to WDW in 11 days. Will you still be there in 16 days when Cynthia and I arrive?

Karin - I think DLP looks wonderful. How great that you were able to snag cheap flights and plan a weekend trip. I can't wait to see the pictures of the Christmas decorations.

The food on the other hand is just devine here! We so love to go and have those signature dishes in the respective countries.

Very true...I am pretty darn close to WDW in mileage perspective

DLP for Christmas decorations Glad you decided to book the flight Karin

Plus I am glad Vito agreed on our breakfast! You really need to come over to Europe one day and experience it for yourself! You ALL would love the food ..... not to mention the scenery.

It is really pretty at Christmastime ....... and it can be VERY cold. But who cares.
I am even more excited we are staying onsite - we have not done that in a long time. And the more I read about the hotel New York, the more excited I get.

Real life has been stressful lately, Mary Ellen. I know I still owe you mail and hope to be able to write this week.
But we are both really excited to be able to squeeze in two more vacations before Christmas.
We rarely stay onsite in Paris, so staying at such a nice hotel is an added bonus treat.

Thank you! We are very excited ourselves. Yes, I know, the things we do for the "fans" of our trip reports.

Yes, we are dedicated writers and would go to ANY Disney park, just to keep our readers satisfied.
Doris, we are as amazed as everyone else, that we are able to squeeze so many extra trips in. It's just awesome.

Yip, we are exited about the news too!
Maybe you should consider a looooooooooong trip to Europe. And fit in a visit to Austria as well. It's pretty nice here.

Italy is really beautiful and thankfully not too far from us here.

I still can't get over the fact that we actually will spend the weekend at DLRP.
It was awesome to find out that they offer a 40% discount on the hotels, even though they are still pricey. But at least we will get to stay onsite again.
I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, so you'll find the perfect deal for yourself.

We used to go for Halloween every year, but their party is just an extra ticket for 5 more hours. No fun parade, just their usual one and no longer any special events.
Last year we were so done with it, we left before 10pm and vowed not to return to a party any time soon.
Christmas on the other hand is pretty nice. We love the festive atmosphere in the parks. So we are both pretty psyched to be able to go in November.

I am glad you decided to come along for the vacation. I'll be done with my Italy report pretty soon and will post updates for our summer vacation.

Italy September 2012

Day 2, September 22

Shop till you drop! - Part 2

We walked along the beach,took in the sights and smells before we headed back to the shopping area.





Walking down the street we noticed that one of the supermarkets was about to close and had a 30% off of everything offer. Now, we always bring home lots of groceries from our visits to Italy and Germany and that offer was very welcome.
We decided to walk further up the pedestrian area before heading back to the supermarket. We stopped at the local church





to light some candles and have a look at the interior and then the next stop was a shop that sells beaded jewellery. Their ideas are always fun and special, so we stopped in and I got carried away and bought more than I had actually wanted.











Further up the street we went, exploring a few more shops and before we knew it, more than two hours had passed. So we headed back to the supermarket, picked up a lot of things we had wanted to buy in the first place, then packed everything into two shopping bags and back to the hotel we went.
The bags were really heavy, so it took us some time to get there and when we finally arrived, we took a short break.
We had a few drinks, unpacked all our goodies









and rested for a little while. A little after 1pm we decided we needed lunch. There was a ristorante right next to our hotel,



so this is where we headed. We found an outside table, took a seat and a waiter was at hand quickly handing us a menu.
We looked over the enormous menu, then decided on our lunch and ordered from it. Again, Tom had some beer, while I was served Diet Coke in a slender can.





I had ordered an



Insalata Mista, which is a salad of mixed leaves and vegetables. It comes undressed, but on every table there are salt and pepper, white wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar and olive oil.



So I dressed the salad and we both began to nibble at it. Shortly after the salad,



Tom’s Pizza arrived. He had ordered a pizza topped with slices of suckling pig and peppers. While he said it was nice it was nothing special and as he said, a bit on the sweet side. Tom was halfway through his pizza when my main course arrived.
I had ordered



Potato gnocci in a cream sauce with spinach and gorgonzola. The gnocci were nice, light and delicate, but the sauce did not have a lot of gorgonzola taste. But none the less we both were hungry and finished off our plates. Once we had paid our bill we went back to our room and had a little rest and a cup of coffee.
