But who'd ever think to look for me here? Our PTR And now TR

In the words of Alice "If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?".
And this trip makes about as much sense as that!

So here we are with 34 sleeps to go, myself and a very Alice besotted DD writing our pre trip report!

This trip came out of no where. I had signed up for a rewards club from my phone network provider and thought Oooh freebies and not much about it since but then when the goodies were being dished out we discovered I was eligible for free flights to Europe and yes, Paris was on the list! So with a bit of cajoling and ringing about two weeks ago we found out we had gotten flights to Beauvais for two weeks before Jemma's 7th birthday and well it certainly would be rude to visit Disneyland Paris.

Queen of Hearts: "And who is this?"
King of Hearts: "Let me see, my dear. It's certainly not a heart. Do you suppose it's a club?"


Heres our PTR:

CAST
DD - Jemma
Our Alice. Loves Alice and all things Wonderland related
Favourite ride/attraction/show: its a small world / The Castle / Stitch Live
Least favourite ride: Tower of Terror
Wants to meet: Alice and Rapunzel
Looking forward to: seeing the villains and Art of Animation.



Alice: "When I get home I shall write a book about this place... If I ever do get home".

Me - Kizzy
I love The Cheshire Cat and Queen of Hearts, Thumper, Mother Gothel...the list goes on!
Favourite ride/attraction/show: Tower of Terror / Main St USA / Cinemagique.
Least favourite ride: SM just scares me!!
Wants to meet: anyone DD wants to.
Looking forward to: seeing DLP in all its Halloween glory.




Queen of Hearts: "Who's been painting my roses red? WHO'S BEEN PAINTING MY ROSES RED? /Who dares to taint / With vulgar paint / The royal flower bed? / For painting my roses red / Someone will lose his head".



When and Where
2 nights and 3 glorious days at the Dream Castle from October 22nd to 24th.
We arrive at 9am and should be at the gates at 11am ready to make our temporary APs into real ones!

Doorknob: Read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction.

Our Meal Plans
Monday:
lunch @ Victorias or Hakuna Matata
dinner @ Cafe Mickey

Tuesday:
lunch @ Pizzaria Bella Notte or The Lucky Nugget Cafe
dinner @ Inventions

Wednesday:
lunch @ The Blockbuster Cafe or EoS
dinner @ Planet Hollywood or Annettes

Alice: "Better read it first, for if one drinks much from a bottle marked "Poison", it's almost certain to disagree with one sooner or later".

Our Must Dos
1st is Phantom Manor.
All the shows and Halloween special extras.
Dreams (DD hasnt seen it yet)
Meet some baddies!
DD is going to try BTM again (fingers crossed she loves it this time!)
Crush - DDs 1st time too!
Art of Animation - DD is so looking forward to this one

Alice: "I simply must get through!"
Doorknob: "Sorry, you're much too big. Simply impassible."
Alice:"You mean impossible?"
Doorknob:"No, impassible. Nothing's impossible."


So thats it! We are counting down the seconds!!
More to follow (a couple of surprises for DD!!)

March Hare: "Start at the beginning."
"Yes, yes. And when you come to the end...
STOP. See?"

I would love to trip together, would be nice to be amongst like minded people as opposed to DH who just doesnt get it (but is dragged along anyway!)

Oh gosh its amazing what a bit of make up, tan and backcombing can do!! Lol I look like a wreck normally but TY.

I have gotten Jem a princess activity book for the journey but shes normally so excited on the way that the time fillers dont get looked at until the way home when shes feeling a bit sad and time is dragging.

I have a few bits and pieces to take snaps of so hopefully I will have an update on Tuesday morning with a pic of her bits and bobs. I must say I havent a huge amount to do before we go. I have most of her clothes organised (have to find my swimming togs) and theres not much that I have to buy. Just have to sort logistics for getting to and from the airport. 29 Sleeps

Curiouser and Curiouser

The Caterpillar: "Who are YOU?"
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation.
Alice: "I--I hardly know, sir, just at present-- at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then."


And so the plot thickens!

The Cast has expanded! My best friend Elaine called down for our weekly chinwag and cuppa and tells me shes on hols from October 22nd and doesnt know what to do with herself. I told her that was the day myself and DD were off to DLP and all she said was "Get the laptop". So 20 minutes later she had booked some extremely good value flights to accompany us! Her flights came in at €90 and RS Transport added her on for the princely sum of €36 and she has her AP so its a bargain! We will add her onto the room at Dream Castle when we arrive Myself and DD are so so so excited. Elaine comes everywhere with us and has done 3 DLP trips with us already and DD is mad about her so the trip is getting more and more exciting and surprising by the second.

Alice: "Curiouser and curiouser!"

And on to DDs swag which she knows nothing about, bar the clothes

Her new Minnie jumper and princess bracelet and charms


Her photo album (€1 - bargain) which I filled with pics of her!


Her surprise lanyard and a few pins I picked her up and her Alice dress


Her new Tesco tees and a pin I picked up for Elaine


And her Princess activity book for the plane


We are rethinking our meal plans at the minute so I'll be back with another update soon
This day two weeks we shall be in Dublin trying to sleep before our early start!!

Its Primark!! Penneys as its called here, but I think its only age 7 up. It says limited edition too but I doubt its too limited!
Elaine has her bag packed already! Its great that shes a big kid too! I dread to think of when she has her own children, I'd say she'll just move to France and be done with it!

If I don't soon stop shopping my husband will divorce me! And this is a budget trip!
We are planning it to death, just after having a very serious conversation about the merits of ordering kids meals at lunchtime at the CS! I think saving those precious euros at lunchtime may justify all the shopping in the run up to the trip!
