So all has been quiet of late in the Crazy Pug life, no proper blog updates apart from reviews for a while, the reason being – My laptop died 😦 All my photos and videos from our honeymoon trip and past trips are on there so I have no pictures or anything to do any food reviews or make any sort of interesting content.
I’m finally having all my files taken off this week so that means – NEW BLOGS!
Not only that we have a little trip booked, exciting stuff.
It’s not Orlando, we’re saving that one for a few years to be able to do a longer trip, but we are going to Disneyland Paris over the summer so we can experience The Lion King and Jungle Festival.
I’ve never really been to Paris for any of the special events they have on, I was there twice over the 25th Anniversary celebrations but never to one of the festivals that they have so I’m really looking forward to this one.
There’s a few things I’ve read about it so I sort of know what to expect in terms of the incredible shows that are planned. And those are what I’m most excited to experience. There is one Lion King show and also one based on Jungle Book so I’m really looking forward to seeing what they are like.
There’s not a great deal of info coming out at the moment as to what other things will be happening, I know there is some sort of Lion King dining experience at Hakuna Matata – which has never been open on my previous visits. It came up as an add-on when I booked my package but I can’t seem to find anything about that online at the moment. It was about £80 from what I can recall so it was quite expensive. I think it gave priority seating for the shows as well as the dining.
I’ll be doing a lot of planning in the coming weeks as this trip we are going with friends who have a 4 year old so this trip is going to be quite different to previous ones.
I’ll be pre-booking dining over the phone so when the time comes I will let you know how that went and I’m already sorting a bit of an itinerary – although with the times for the festival offerings not being available yet that could all change.
What I can tell you is we’re on site at Sequoia Lodge – my favourite hotel in Disneyland Paris – we’re flying over this time and we have the half board dining plan.
I will be taking my own mobility scooter as Disneyland Paris don’t have them to hire so I will be going through the process of booking that onto the plane and also seeing how the Magical Shuttle is booked with it – as you’re not able to book it as part of your package if you have access requirements you have to book it direct. Something that isn’t made clear when you book online, I only found this out when I called to ask about how to book the scooter in.
I’ve also recently got my hands on a VERY handy little Orlando planning guide so I’ll be doing a little review on that shortly too.
