(February 2021)popcorn::


With all the silliness surrounding this Covid 19 stuff, I thought I would keep my sanity by creating a 4 holed Disney themed putt putt golf course in my backyard. What you see pictured is only two of the holes (obstacles will be put into play) with the other two being a Links course.
(and yes, you will be using not only your putter but also your wedge) .


Going to be challenging to put together but the fun really begins when I get to determine what is par.

Meaning I will play it once without drinking margaritas
and then one time with.....;)

Pics and video up in about 3 to four weeks I promise.

    Ok, So I see DINNER RESSIE that there is Silver Spur, Blue Lagoon......any additional suggestions????:confused3
    You should try Bistro Chez Remy in the Studios as well it's fab and if you want to splash out a bit more I would go to Buffalo Bills Wild West show. If you have meal vouchers you can use these towards the cost of the show. I've written about the two of these in my trip report linked in my sig if you want to look :)



    #3) What day of the week in early April should I go??:scratchin
    I have always found weekdays are better but check when Easter is when you're going because if european schools are on Easter Holidays parks will be busy anyway

    Allrighteeeeeeeeee -



    Well, If you cant tell - I've decided the heck with it and begin being celebrating that this adventure is now underway. And..... yes - I am making a run at dinner ressies very late in the day at Bistro Chez Remy or ????? - But again, gotta get airfare booked 4 this in a wee while.

    Gonna look the other way when its booked cuz I dont wanna know the cost but hey - it is what it is, ya know?

    I mean, to just be "over there" and to walk through DL hotel and into the park will make it all worthwhile -:woohoo:




    And
    while over in the Paris side of this -popcorn::
    Going to take in a cabaret show or sorts.....
    (lots of champagne will be served)


    can't forget about this place I will b visiting as well

    Got a few surprises I will be dropping on ya as we go along on this adventure as always remember my motto:


    "WHAT HAPPENS ON VACATION STAYS ON THE INTERNET":laughing:
    (that reminds me, I need to b sure and pack a wine bottle opener)........

    Loving your excitement! It's lovely to see Paris through the eyes of an American, and hear how excited you are to visit what I see as my "home" park. You've got tons of time to plan and learn everything you need to know about DLP and France.
