    Got back late last night from the most magical 10 days in DLRP ever! Parks were very busy (obviously no one has heard of the credit crunch!!!), weather was SO hot, only had rain Wednesday and Thursday of the first week (22nd/23rd), thankfully we had taken our old ponchos but then they ripped and we didn't need to buy any more!

    Highs: (loads of them)
    DD1 finally getting a picture with Belle and Ariel
    Me discovering Indiana Jones (I'm a wuss at rollercoasters and up until last Wednesday BTM and ToT were my only 'big' rides)
    Birthday meal for DD2 at Cafe Mickey
    My 'big' birthday meal at Inventions
    Mickey's Magical Party Show - fabulous
    Half Board Plus Vouchers - fantastic!
    Eating at Walts and getting a window seat
    Tiggers cartwheels and general 'bounciness' all the time!
    Visiting Paris, getting very emotional at the Notre Dame after lighting a candle for my Dad
    VIP breakfasts
    The overall friendliness of all the CM's at the Seqouia Lodge

    Lows:
    Really picky here *** there really weren't any lows at all, but the staggered opening times didn't help my planning at all! :lmao:

    Have got a trip report all planned out which I'll hopefully start over the next few days.

    Glad you had a magical time Dianne, we did just 3 nights (arrived on Tuesday and left friday) - perhaps we saw you!! If you watched the 7.15 parade on Thursday you may have seen my daughter as she was in the pre-parade of UK dance schools! And if you didn't see her you WILL have heard me shouting and woowooing!!:cheer2::cheer2:

    Sorry we didn't see the pre-parade on Thursday, I was celebrating my birthday in Inventions. We did see a dance school (several actually) in the parks in a pre-parade last Friday (24th).

    Welcome back Diane - glad you had a good time.

    Also glad to hear you've discovered Indiana Jones. I remember the first time I rode that - I was quite nervous as I'd never ridden an upside down roller coaster before but I quite enjoyed it. I was still nervous when I made step up to space mountain but I loved that as well.

    We also did Tuesday to Friday and like Dianne, Indiana Jones was superb which was for most of us the best ride.

    Also not impressed with appear to be cost cutting measures by opening some attractions late. CMs we spoke to agreed that the lack of Lion king and Tarzan was a disappointment to older audiences and rumours of bring back LK in the winter.....

    Pirates was best done at or just after the parade - no queue at all.

    When it came to check out they put someone else's room service (which we never use) on our bill - over 100 euros and tried to claim it was ours - until I blew a fuse........

    For those of you who have been recently did you have anybody asking for your tickets at the gate?

    We've never had this before but on our last day as we were leaving Disneyland a young girl approached me and asked if we were leaving? as her 'friend' had lost his ticket and could we pass ours on to him at the gate:scared1:then once we got out of the gate hubby took the kids to the toilet so I sat on a bench another woman started chatting to me then said all of a sudden "my kids are stuck in the park and I'm not allowed back in - you give me your ticket I need to find them":scared1: I realise this probably happens all the time but the first time it's happened to us and a little disturbing especially as the second woman became quite insistent and a little aggresive.

    We did think about reporting them but needed to get on the road for the journey back.
