How nice to meet up with a Diser in Paris!
He was such a sweetie!What a great Dismeet! It’s so cute how Landon gravitated to you!
It was really great!Sounds like such a great time with Alicia and her family!!
Yeah, I loved getting to meet with them! And might as well use my FPs for good!What an awesome DIS meet!! Sounds like a really fun first day for them and last day for you And an excellent use of some of your bonus fast passes
It's hard when you have a short time, you have to balance photos with actually enjoying the time! On the cruise I barely took any photos because I was just trying to relax and enjoy it!I caught back up!
I actually bought the tinkerbell Christmas ornament! It was actually pretty sturdy and they wrapped it well enough that it made the journey from Paris to Manchester, England to Toronto in one piece! I wish I had taken more pictures during our time there but I made the decision to try to soak up as much as I could without a camera (which I now regret! Lol)
What a fun dismeet!!
That's good to know for the future!Yes, you get the Magic Pass for the room, not the package! You'll have access to EMT with a third party booking and separate tickets
Yeah, we had a really good time!He looks like he is having a blast with you! Love it!
Sounded like a great dis-meet!
Thanks! We got along really well!How nice to meet up with a Diser in Paris!
Thanks! Yeah, it's always fun when you get to meet people you only know online!I’ve enjoyed reading along and looking at all of your pictures. It’s so neat to see how many details are in everything at DLP, but the rude guests seem to be getting very annoying. How cool you had a DISmeet with Alicia, I follow along with her family too. I’m looking forward to reading about the rest of the trip!
My friends kids had those water books and it just seemed like a good option for something lightweight, fun, and not messy! I'm glad the kids liked them so much!I know I wrote about our meetup and already got to remember how fun it was, but I still became excited reading about everything in your update. (I guess I just think it's really cool that a DISmeet happened in an international park.)
Landon and Evie loved those water pens and books! I remember we got them ready for bed in lightning speed that night with the enticement that they could color in their books when they were done.
I couldn't remember exactly what happened in the carousel line, just that we ran in to some rude girls. Sorry my husband had to passive aggressively shut their antics down. The older he gets the less patience he has with rude people.
You were so kind when you described the milk at dinner as a minor incident. Being polite enough to not to mention that BOTH of my silly kids sent their milk all over the table over the course of a meal.
I'm glad you suggested we go see the dragon because that was the only time we did it on that trip!
Skipping Illuminations and resting was probably the wiser move. You had to be wiped after weeks of traveling around France.
Yeah, I guess it was sort of like Hollywoodland. It was interesting how the walls all looked like movie set props.This looks like quite the efficient day. Two rides in a row on Crush's Coaster! What an efficient morning with that one!
To answer your question if Paris' Lights! Motors! Action! is the same as DHS's, it does look that way (including the whole remote control fake out). I don't see Lightning McQueen or Herbie though which were both in DHS's show at certain points in its history before closing. That was a fun segment.
Studio 1 looks like an indoor Hollywood Land at DCA or what it looks like at night. Giving me major nostalgia of walking through that area to get back to costuming after my shifts. Ah, the mems *sobs*
I agree with you, that is an odd place to put the Magic Carpets. It looks like they needed another attraction and just put that one in for the heck of it. *shrugs*
I think I didn't like the fillings so that's why I didn't get any!Sounds like a successful morning! And lots of nice pictures!
I'm not into Marvel but those treats look so cool! Especially the Groots!
Yeah, they are investing $2 Billion in a large expansion. It will include Marvel Land, Frozen Land, and Star Wars Galaxy's Edge, plus a big lake in the center. Marvel land will include retheming Rock n Roller Coaster to Iron Man. I think though SWGE will just get the Falcon ride and Frozenland will get a ride similar to Frozen Ever After (but purposefully designed for it, not Malestorm rethemed). It should be interesting, but they really just started the land clearing, so we have some time to wait!I was not a big fan of Lights, Motors, Action at DHS, so I think that is definitely one attraction that I’ll be able to skip at the Studios. I didn’t know that they were going to be getting Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge! That’s cool!
Yeah - Crush's coaster would have been so much fun at Epcot! Really develop the Seas area, and it could help divide people between it and the Guardians coaster!Glad you were able to get in two rides on Crush's Coaster. Such a fun ride! I wish they had brought that attraction to Epcot rather than Ratatouille.
Mickey the Magician is such an awesome show. Pretty awesome that you were able to get in to this and then the Marvel show later.
It's Mickey!! A pretty sad one, but there you have it...I ended up just getting a kids pizza. Which they did this weird bunny ear thing to, but I actually didn’t mind because it meant I got some chunks of lots of fresh dough (which I like a lot). And it actually was very very yummy (not weird 4-cheese pizza with goat’s cheese or anything).
For the train, there are 2 options. The RER is cheaper and the one that goes into Paris, where you transfer and get on another train over to DLP. It also takes longer and isn’t as easy with luggage since it’s the normal commuter train. The TGV is the one I did, which goes directly from the airport to DLP. It’s more money but faster and more set up for luggage since people are going further distances. It’s still not super convenient if you have bags because you have to lift them on and off train, plus find a place to store them (I don’t remember if there was a luggage spot by the doors). I only had a carry-on so it wasn’t an issue for me. The bus would probably not be a bad idea since the bags are underneath and it’s direct to the resort. I think the express bag option is also good so you don’t have to trudge around with them!Looks like a pretty good final day in the parks! I just booked our stay and decided on the Newport Bay Club hotel since it was significantly less money and was renovated in 2016. I decided to add the express option as well where they transport your luggage for you from the train station. I also got the bus transportation option for our departure day (basically like Magical Express, maybe that's even what they call it, I can't remember now)... I was thinking the airport was more like an hour away and had read that it can be a little stressful with luggage because it's also a commuter train as you get closer into Paris. I guess I must have confused this somehow...
Thanks for the tip also on the airport hotel! I was definitely thinking we should stay close to the airport if possible since my sister has a 10am flight the following morning.
Oh, and that's awesome that your were able to get the Starbucks mugs!
