DAY ONE!!! CAST: ME - Mummy and organiser of the trip. Loves all things Disney. Matthew- My wonderful other half. First trip to a Disney resort Nanny- Loves all things magical, had been to DLP with me before Benjamin (4)- Loves peter pan, and all the disney films. Has an amazing imagination, and lives in either costumes or school uniform Milo (just 1)- Baby of the group. TRAVEL- Driving from cornwall to Bristol airport, then flying to cdg, then transfer to Sante fe Well we got up at 4am and got ourselves ready, locked windows, got all milos bottles ready etc. Woke the boys up just before 5 and bundled them into car with duvets. I thought they would be back off to sleep... But ben was far to excited and was singing "we're going to Disneyland" over and over... (I may have joined in too...) Picked nanny up, and now of all times... matthew gets a nose bleed?? haha, think it was the excitement.. so we all swap around, now i am driving to Bristol! So we are off. We get there in good time... In fact 45 mins earlier then our satnav expected... so we now had nearly 3 hours to wait in a small airport . The first hour went very slowly.. but after we checked in and went through to departures, it was much easier with the boys. they had arcade and shops to mooch around. Thenw as time for the plane. We all got bundled into a bus... and it was at that point I realised there were about 16 passengers for the flight..... When we pulled up to our plane.. i burst into laughter... It was this tiny tiny air france plane!! well all 16 of us crammed into our toy plane... Milo was strapped to me.. which he was not impressed with!! The flight was fast.... but soo bumpy... it was not windy.. just the plane being so small I think, but it made it much more of an adventure. Milo had huge cry for about 15 mins, then went off to sleep... so was not too bad. We found transfer straight away and bus was waiting, so that was good. ben fell asleep on way there..as by this time it was 3 oclock.. and had been a long day. Woke ben up as we arrived in Sante fe.. Was so excited. We went off to room, pur on some warmer layers, changed nappies etc... then took one of many beautiful walks into the park. We were block 14... right near the path to the prak, so made for a speedy exit! We were on 2nd floor.. but had a lift so that didnt matter either. They had not put cott in, but we rang and by time we were back from park there was a nice travel cott in our room, with fleecy blankets and brushed cotton sheets.[/COLOR][/COLOR] Walking through the village was amazing, and so exciting, but I kept rushing everyone along to get to park! (This was a common feature in holiday.. I had to be a bit pushy... on the saturday... they realised why!!!) Got to park and was hit my the gorgeous christmas decorations, the music. It was lovely and empty too. It got dark very early on the Wendnesday, so instead of walking around park like planned... we saw on the board that Buzz was a 5 min wait... so we headed over and did buzz... Ben and Milo loved it. I won... and may i add... i seemed to have a wierd knack with Buzz.... even with milo on my lap... i managed to get levels 3 and 4 every time... haha.. matthew getting levels 2 was not too impressed... haha. It became quite a contest! After this we went and got some popcorn and hot drinks and found a spot in central plaza area for the Candlebration which, as you can see was gorgeous. I was really tearful. The the snow fell... we were too far down for the snow, but saw it, it was lovely. We then went to Peter Pan which was a walk on! Then tea cups... also a walk on!! Had something to eat then hear the music start for the fantasllusion parade! so I grabbed ben and ran ahead and stood near its a small world, where the floats come out... At first saw all the Villens floats.. and was a wee bit worried... that it was still maybe a halloween parade.. as ben looked quite scared. But then other floats came out.... and thats when he saw her.... The little mermaid... now may I add.. before this trip, ben showed little interest in her... but on this trip... he fell head over heels!! We then went off to our very very very comfy beds, and got little sleep in excitment for the next day!! And I will write up next day, when milo has his nap later! Its lovely writting this... you can relive it!
