DisneyDreamer13 & EeyoresBuddy trip to DLP
I figured it time to start the pre/post trip thread now i can finally say we go to DLP this year!!!!!
This trip will involve me, (future) DH, DS1, DS2 & (my Mom) EeyoresBuddy (a.k.a Nan).
Both DS's have their birthdays in the first 2 weeks of January, and each year we find so soon after Christmas they dont need more toys/clothes/candy etc, so this trip is their birthday present this year.
The basic plans of the trip are 2 rooms for 3 nights in the Santa Fe hotel (like a value on-site in WDW). We got a great deal when we booked the trip, both kids are getting the whole trip free (park tickets/room/breakfasts), and the adults have got an extra day (park ticket/night/breakfast) free. We have also added the half board option to the trip. We've never used this before but the idea is we each get a 3 course meal voucher for each night we stay, and have 16 restaurants to pick from. Although this might restrict our plans a little, the Pound:Euro exchange rate is making it a very smart move!
Thursday afternoon we'll be waiting for DH to finish work around 12.30, and before he has time to even think about lunch, we'll be on the road heading south to reach the Channel Tunnel mid afternoon. Hopefully we wont have to wait too long to drive onto the train and could be over in France by early evening. Time estimates say its about a 3 hour drive from the tunnel down to DLP, so it will probably be a matter of arriving to check in, grab some food, have a walk around the Disney Village and sleep.
Friday we will be spending in Disneyland Park (their MK), including a character lunch at the Lucky Nugget Saloon (Frontierland).
Saturday is planned to be spent in Walt Disney Studios and followed with an eveing meal in The Rainforest Cafe and some time in the Disney Village.
Sunday will be check out. A last few hours to head wherever we decide, a last meal and then drive back to the Channel Tunnel and back through southern England and home.
Its sure to be cold (really cold, not Florida winter cold), we just hope that the only thing that will fall on us will be Pixie Dust, rain and snow can stay away please!!
