    Oh I hope you get snow, that would be cool. We had snow when we went for NYE 2006/2007 but it was 'Disney' snow :lol:, although it definitely felt cold enough to be real snow. I hope you have a great time too, have you any plans yet?

    We went between Xmas and NYE a few years ago and it was -10, it was a teeny bit cold and frosty!

    Glad you joined my report over here too... I'm definitely keeping up with yours.

    I don't think that its so much about my career as to how I can afford the trips, its more about my home/lifestyle. My boyfriend and I have a house, we don't pay rent or bills (apart from phone and internet), we don't have any kids to pay out for, and we don't go out that often but rather save our money for great holidays. There will come a time soon that this will change and we will have to grow up and start spending our money on more sensible things like mortgages, bills etc, but for now whilst were still quite young were just enjoying what we love best... traveling and Disney :p015::p015:

    No its fine, you don't sound nosey at all. And yes the cabin was amazing, I really wasn't sure about that one as there were 3 and I had to choose and didn't want to get it wrong. But by my Mum's tearful reaction, and my sister and Dad refusing to leave, I think it was a good choice.

    My older sister is the complete opposite of me and is so bad with money, she obviously takes after my dad (the real one). Whereas my Mum has always been very sensible and careful with money, only spending what she has and what she knows she can afford, and I guess that has rubbed off on me somewhat. I just hope my baby sister gets the sensible gene as her Dad isn't that sensible with money either.

    Oh hunni! I'm soo glad you are posting your trippies over here as well!

    What a great read ( as always) DLRP looks great fun! I've never been but my Mum has been for a Day when she was at her best friends wedding in France 4yrs ago. She said it was great fun -but don't think she knows what she letting herself in for with Orlando - as I'm guessing its not even maybe on the same scale!!!:shocked025:

    Anyhow just want to echo what Claire has already said you really are such a lovely person and so good to your family!

    They are very lucky folks to have someone as sweet as you in their lives.

    Can't wait to here all about it when you get back!

    Have a great time! Oh and Congratulations on your 5yr Anniversary!:champers3:

    Hey guys, hope your all still with me :hug2:

    Well were off tomorrow lunchtime, we're traveling to Folkestone to stay in a hotel overnight so we don't have to be up so early on Friday. We are stopping at Bluewater en-route to see HSM3 as a surprise for Sophie and then tea at TGI's, wahoo.

    Anyway I hope you all have a fabulous Halloween. I will be back Tuesday with a new trip report and loads of photos :p015:.

    Take care and have fun :hug2:

    Hey guys were back :wave:

    We got back home about 10.30 last night and then Mum, Dad and Sophie left about 9am this morning... I am sooooo tired, and very sad to be home again.

    We had an amazing time, it has definitely made me want to go back again soon, unlike our last visit.
    Halloween was brilliant, as was the Paris tour, and Nick brought me lots of nice gifts and surprises.
    On the downside it was a bit rainy the first few days and also pretty chilly, it was very, very crowded (which we obviously expected), and of course the usual pushy, arrogant people who can't understand queue's.

    Anyway I have got loads of photo's and will start my trip report soon, hopefully tonight if I can upload the photo's :p015:

    Hope everyone is ok :hug2:
