OK, so the title might change, but it was all I could think of for now to sum up the trip! The cast: Me, Karen, 32 and a total Disney nut - 5th trip to DLRP and 3rd Disney trip this year! DH, Pete, 33, puts up with my Disney obsession, loves our trips but not a Disneyholic like me! Mum, my mum (62), never been to a Disney park before! Dad, my dad, (65), also never been to a Disney park before! (OK the only picture I could find on my computer of my parents was taken 5 years ago, they still look the same, DH and I on the other hand do not!) The reason behind the trip: My parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary last month and as their gift we are treating them to a trip to Disneyland Paris. I figured they might like to see what I love! The plan: We are staying at the Disneyland hotel for 3 nights. We are driving across using the tunnel. I will drive to the tunnel and Pete will drive on the French side. Sunday 26th October - My parents drive down from Leeds to stay over night (well until 2am!) at our house. We will spend the evening watching Disney DVD's, especially Nightmare Before Christmas as my parents won't have a clue who the Halloween characters are! Monday 27th October - Leave our house at 2am eek: ) and drive the 3 hours to the tunnel. We were booked on the 6:20am crossing but I think this might change to 6:05am due to the fire. If we haven't heard from the tunnel a week before we go I'll phone to check. Hopefully we will arrive at DLRP between 11:00 - 11:30, then drop off our bags (I guess our room won't be ready yet) and head off into the parks. We have lunch booked at Walts at 1pm. Tuesday 28th October - Make use of EMH, mid morning break at Salon Mickey (so I can use my shareholders card!) dinner booked at California Grill at 7pm followed by Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party. Wednesday 29th October - Make use of EMH again, over to the studios for opening so we (meaning DH and I, possibly my dad if he liked BTMRR!!) can ride Crush. Dinner booked at Inventions. Thursday 30th October - EMH again, then later check out of the hotel. Lunch at 12pm at the Lucky Nugget. Then mid afternoon drive back to the tunnel to go home. I don't want to plan each day in too much detail, as my parents have never been before we kind of want to go with the flow. Pete and I have already been to Disneyland Paris and Disneyland this year so we have done our commando style trip for the year! However some must do's: For me: To see the Lion King show. For Pete: Ride RnRC and Space Mountain, he loves those rides. Dad: He want to try "That runaway mine train thing." I love coasters and dad has never ridden one but he really wants to go on this. Mum: Want to see the stunt car show and the show type attractions. I am know the parks will be busy, but we will have the extra fastpass per day from the Disneyland hotel, plus we have the extra non expiring fast passes we got off ebay. I figured we have been to Disney parks enough times we know how to get ahead of the crowds and make the best guesses as to the order to do thing in. The other thing I really want to do it take lots of photographs. After our April trip and all the lovely comments I recieved about my photography I upgraded to a DSLR camera and am now really into photography. I want to take lots of nice pictures, especially pictures of the park in the dark as I have never been to DLRP when the park was open in the dark before. So that is our plan. I'm usually really excited about our Disney trips, but this one I am finding it hard to get excited about. Maybe because I am trying not to plan as much!! Apologies about the size of the pictures, I tried to resize them but it wouldn't let me!
