"To all who come to this happy place; welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past...and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future"
We were specially welcomed with open arms, cookies and bright smiley faces.
The disney arrivals team had been up since 4am getting their red carpet ready
just for me - just kidding.
They made sure we had everthing we needed and we just had a chat and gossip
before heading to our new apartments - Vista Way!

"This old town can slow you down
People taking the easy way
But I know exactly where I'm going
Getting closer and closer every day"
My Disney journey began with having flights cancelled due to a random ash cloud that just happened to cover only Scotland over the exact time I was flying and parking its fat ass there long enough to miss my next flight.
However, never one to do anything without a smile, I met Nikki. We frantically searched about 106 hours for alternate flights/ busses/ trains to London.
Within an hour of having the next flight delayed we were on the train to London.
We met various characters along the way including 2 guys on the train to London who told us of their travels to Lisbon,
a cheery Londoner ( very uncommon ) who carried our cases - 30 kilos in each hand!- up the stairs at the tube in Victoria,
one extremely tired passenger on the Gatwick Express going to see her daughter in Tenerife who was filming Clash of The Titans 2 & lots of holiday makers heading to WDW.
After our travels we treated ourselfes to a mimosa and a long sleep to the U-S-A.
“Fairytales can come true
You gotta make 'em happen, it all depends on you"
