So, heading to DLP this week ....

Having just unpacked this last weekend after our trip to WDW, I then had to repack for our visit to DLPR at the end of this week!

Taking extra sweaters and socks though, as well as a pair of gloves - I think the weather looks to be dry but cold for our 5 day trip.

Looking forward to dinner at Walt's American Restaurant one evening (dined there last year and really liked it), seeing all the holiday decorations and parade, and riding the new Ratatouille ride, which opened shortly after we left last year! Plus doing some last-minute Christmas shopping for family (as we didn't buy enough stuff at WDW!).

I think I need a vacation to get over my Disney vacations ......

Smile Have a great time

I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time.
We have a love/hate relationship with DLP.
We always enjoy a visit but it is so not like a trip to WDW.
The Ratatouille ride is first class as is the themeing and food at Chez Remy next door.

Enjoy :-)

Silvercat, I know this is an older thread, but you had some great suggestions for me before so I thought I'd ask, what DLP hotel did you stay at? On-site or off-site? Gearing up for our first visit to DLP now that we are in Europe, so I'm expecting to go back on several occasions.

Well, I'm going to jump in here as I think it might be a while before Carolyn can come back to you.

We love the Disneyland Hotel, it's the best, but it's also exceptionally expensive. We only do it through our DVC points. Outside of that, we've really enjoyed our stay at the Vienna House Dream Castle and more recently, we stayed at Relais Spa Val d'Europe and loved that. If it's just adults and you like spas, this is the place for you!

Oh, no, thanks for jumping in! That's great, Vienna House Dream Castle is the very one I was considering. Not sure if a stay at the Disneyland Hotel will ever happen, but for when we do go with on-site, I'm leaning towards Newport or Sequoia. But, I think I'm going to save it (and some money) for a special occasion, particularly since this trip is coming around last minute.

Hi there from Walt Disney World!

We had previously stayed in Sequoia Lodge, but during this particular trip we were a bit disappointed with the location of our room - for the first time ever we were put in one of the outer wings, which was quite a long way from the main building with the store and restaurants in. It was a huge hike to breakfast every day! We didn't visit DLP in 2016, and for our visit in March this year, we opted for the newly refurbished, and new to us, Newport Bay. We LOVED this resort, it was so pretty and the rooms were light and airy. We will definitely stay there again!

If you are thinking of Sequoia, just ensure you request a room in the main building if possible, unless you enjoy a long walk before breakfast each day!

I'm glad I have been of some help in the past!

Right, off to Hollywood Studios we go ..........

Well colour me wrong - that's why I thought you wouldn't be checking in, as I assumed you'd be having far too much fun in the Disney bubble! Enjoy the rest of your time out there!
