Euro Disney - November 2008

Thomas has been to Euro Disney!

We had a great time albeit absolutely FREEZING brrrrr.... we arrived on the Thursday and each day got colder and colder until the Sunday afternoon when we actually had a blizzard. We were well prepared for it though, Thomas was kitted out in a thermal vest, super hero tights under his trousers (well, we couldn't let on they were just 'girls' tights could we) and several layers, so he was pretty snug.

He LOVED all the characters but Mickey was definitely his favourite, he kept kissing him on the nose ahhhhh....

We went to all the family Disney shows, Winnie the Pooh and friends, The Lion King, Animagic, Mickey's Winter Wonderland etc etc and they were just the right length of time for Thomas to be mesmerised with them. The Disney parades were great and the Christmas lights were so well done. He really enjoyed the rides, particulary the Flying Elephants and the Disney Cars ride although once on them he wasn't quite so keen on having to get off them!

It was really busy at the weekend but thankfully we took one of his hospital outpatient letters with us and his blue badge and they presented us with a pass that meant we bypassed the queues. It was brilliant, we would have never have thought about it but some of our Little Hearts friends have been and passed on the tip. We were so grateful for it, at first it felt a bit weird using it but we soon got over ourselves and got into the swing of it.

All in all we had a great time.

We're off to Birmingham on Thursday for a check up so I'll let you know how he gets on. I always get a little anxious when we have to go back but he seems to be doing so well.... we just hope they agree.
