    The cast:
    Me (Cathy) :recent convert to DLRP mega-fan-dom
    DH (Elliot) : not quite so enthusiastic but loves it when he's there!

    This will be our third trip to DLRP (and we'll be back at Christmas) but our first without the children. When being harassed by MIL to have a long weekend away on our own (so she could get her hands on the children!) the pink palace sneaked its way into my dreams and a trip was born.
    We're both foodies so good food will play a big part in our trip....and I fully plan to drink some cocktails! We have half board vouchers and have booked California Grill, Inventions and The Steakhouse, although I've completely forgotten what time I've booked for. We also intend to eat lunch at Annettes on our last day.
    We'll be going on the Eurostar for the first time presuming I can find the tickets or get hold of some more. We plan to go on Phantom Manor which DS won't do, DH wants to go on the riverboat and I want to do Buzz and see the Lion King but otherwise we'll see how it goes. I'm very excited to be seeing the halloween decorations and having some child-free time for the first time in about 6 yrs. Do feel guilty not to be taking the children, but not that guilty since they'll have been 3 times this year! In any case MIL has great plans for them so they'll be spoiled to within inches of their lives!

    I'll be too busy being awestruck to wave I expect!
    I plan to eat huge breakfasts and have a croissant at Salon Mickey so Slimming World is going out of the window for 4 days.

    Sounds great! I wish I could do something like that but my DD2 is only 4.5 months so not just yet.

    Do your kids know you are going to DLRP without them? I'm sure my DD1 would have a hissy fit :lmao:

    We're getting the Eurostar from Ashford, and here's something I should have added to the pre-trippie......

    THE KIDS DO NOT KNOW AND WILL NOT EVER KNOW!!!!!!!

    Lucky you, getting away without your children. Make sure you make the most of your time together & try not to miss them too much!

    If I could find my tickets I could tell you where we were sitting, but sadly not!

    :confused3 Oh no.. Have you phoned the Eurostar to ask them to send new one? Did you book online, as I'm sure I got an email after with all the details on...
