    OMG!!!!!!!! I didn't realize you were on THAT cruise. There were lots of videos all over the internet of the DREAM and FANTASY meeting!
    Lucky girl!!!!!!!
    The fireworks at sea from both ships looked soooooo cool and I loved the sight of both ships at CC! You must have been thrilled.
    Tom and I want to drive over to Port Canaveral to see the Fantasy cruise out during our summer vacation, but your experience was just awesome!!!!!


    All the Disney ships are so beautiful! But it was so emotional to see her sail out on her very first "real" cruise! :love: ;)

    I just drove home and used the new sensors for the first time. It will take some time getting used to. :rotfl2: :rotfl2: It makes me more nervous than helping me so far, but I guess with time I will get better and more used to the "beeping". :lmao:

    OMG ...... what an amazing photo! Thanks for posting the link, Jen!

    Tom and I are following the ships on Marine tracker, so we knew they were both there, but I didn't know there was a photo.
    How cute, the classic ship looks tiny against the new one! :laughing:

    Plans for our trip to Disneyland Paris

    Day 1 (hopefully), Friday April 27

    UPDATE ..... April 14:
    Day 1 of our trip was cancelled because we could not get an evening flight out. So our trip will actually only start on April 28!


    There is a hopefully, because we weren't able to book our flights yet. I want to use airmiles, but in order to even save on them :rotfl2: I can only book 2 weeks prior to departure.
    So, if everything works out these are our plans.

    Tom will have to work, he starts at 4am and hopefully (again) will be home by around 1pm.
    I start work at 10 and will be home by 2.15pm.

    Once home we will have a very quick lunch

    [​IMG]

    and then leave for the airport. There are two evening flights and we hope to be able to catch the earlier one of them.

    [​IMG]

    There is a short layover in Frankfurt and then we should be on the way to Paris.

    [​IMG]

    While I wait for our luggage, Tom will pick up our rental car.

    [​IMG]

    By time we have everything loaded in our rental car, it should be around 11 - 11.30pm.
    We will then just drive to a hotel right off the airport, to spend the night.

    I guess since it will have been a pretty long day by then, we will just fall into bed and go to sleep.

    That will be a long day. Travel days always are though, aren't they.

    It must be nearing dinner time for me though... cause after reading your updates... just the picture of that sesame bun makes my mouth water. YUM!!! I do so love sesame buns. :goodvibes

    Yes travel days are always long days for us ...... especially when travelling to the US and gaining 6 hours, but I guess even the trip to Paris that day will be tiring. Especially for Tom who has to get up in the middle of the night, but it will give us a head start on our trip to Disneyland resort! :thumbsup2

    Hope your dinner was more than sesame buns! ;) :laughing:

    Ya know...when I first read that I thought, of course I ate more than that for dinner. Then... I remembered. My son made dinner...and it was sausage gravy, biscuits and eggs. (yes, a breakfast for dinner sort of deal) I wasn't about to complain since I had a long day and didn't want to cook( not to mention everyone loves that stuff here). However, country gravy with sausage in it makes me gag and he didn't make enough eggs so I didn't eat one... so what did that leave? Yup... a couple of biscuits. :rotfl2: They didnt even have the sesame seed on them.

    Jen, that really is cute!! Thanks for sharing this one - nice to see one I missed!
    I love how you have the trips to DLPR in between the US trips...and it is so much fun to follow along! Traveling can be exhausting, but I'd never give it up just because I lose sleep!!;)

    Thank you, Christine!
    What a cute card! I loved it. :goodvibes


    :rotfl2: Hope you found something better than the old "wurstsemmel". :rotfl2:

    What a fun "story". :laughing: But that's the way it very often seems to end ..... mum ending up with the "leftovers", even though in your case they do not sound very appetizing. I am not a big fan of biscuits, and NO sausage gravy for me, thank you - might go for an egg, but biscuits on its own? :scared1: Hope you found something yum to have with your biscuits.

    Christine, if Jen doesn't TAKE the cutest pictures, she finds them! :thumbsup2

    We need something to haul us over between trips. ;) :laughing: And now with the 20th anniversary celebration it really makes sense to go for a long weekend (Friday to Tuesday)


    The magic looks "cute" next to the Fantasy - and what a nice thought, the oldest and the youngest ship next to each other. :goodvibes

    Plans for our trip to Disneyland Paris

    Day 1, Saturday April 28

    Day 1, Saturday April 28

    Our travel day will start pretty early. I guess we will have to get up at 3.30am, get ready and just grab a bite to eat, before we will load all our luggage into the car and are off to the airport.
    Our flight to Frankfurt leaves at 6.05am! :scared1:

    [​IMG]

    There is a short layover in Frankfurt and then we should be on the way to Paris.

    [​IMG]

    While I wait for our luggage, Tom will pick up our rental car.

    [​IMG]

    Once all the paperwork is done, we will find our car in the "really confusing" parking garage, before we start our drive over to Disneyland Paris.

    [​IMG]

    We intend to park at the parking structure close to the new World of Disney

    [​IMG]

    and head to the Studios to buy our new temporary APs, then just walk over to the Magic Kingdom Park

    [​IMG]

    and exchange them for the real thing.

    [​IMG]

    By then it should be time for lunch, which will either be CS

    [​IMG]

    or at Anette’s

    [​IMG]

    before we are heading to the Auchan

    [​IMG]

    to stock up on groceries for the visit and having a look around the Disney outlet that is in Val d’Europe. Shopping done we will head back to Citea

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and check in, explore our villa and get settled in. Guess we will take a break and then head over to our favourite bakery to pick up some yummy baguette and pastries!
    We’ll have dinner in our villa

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    before we head over to the parks again. The Magic Kingdom park will be open until 11pm

    [​IMG]

    and they are doing a new show – Disney Dreams,

    [​IMG]

    which is brand new for the 20th anniversary and which we do not want to miss.
    After that we will have to walk back to the car and drive home to our villa for a short night’s rest.

    I just love the outside of the HM. It is the same ride inside though?

    Pastries look yummy....

    Your villa is so crisp and clean looking! I assume you have stayed here before?

    And how exciting to see a new show. I will be anxious to hear about it!!!

    Phantom Manor (HM) the ride, is basically the same as in the US, the story is a bit different, but the basic effects are the same.
    They have a "fun" graveyard you can walk through after the ride, with a tomb, which if you listen carefully will start knocking. :rotfl2:
    Doesn't it remind you of the "Psycho" house though? I have always thought it looked like it. :lmao:

    Yes, we have stayed at Citea (the villa) before. It is like a little village and has a little garden and you can even make a barbecue there. It feels very French and not so much like a hotel. :thumbsup2

    They have a new parade AND the new Disney Dreams show, which is like "the magic the memories and you" and "fantasmic" in one.
    Here's a link that has been posted on the DLRP fan site!
