Somehow it seems like we're taking more home with us...oh yes, half of the Disney store. We do Crush as single riders first then Rock ...

Full trip report index here: [URL]https://www.thedibb.co.uk/forums/reporter-index.php?userid=332[/URL] Late nights, early mornings. I'll need to go back to work for a rest after all of this. This morning it's early entry to Disney Studios. Single riders for Crush's Coaster (we're on and off in 15 minutes, as we come out the wait time is 85 minutes at 8.45am! ) Then o...

Full trip report index here: [URL]https://www.thedibb.co.uk/forums/reporter-index.php?userid=332[/URL] After a hectic day, and helped by a cheeky cocktail, we all went off to sleep quickly. I'm not going to lie, the beds in Davy Crockett Ranch aren't the best (the bed at Compiegne holds that record) but they are adequate enough. Then around 5am this morning... B O O...

Full trip report index here: [URL]https://www.thedibb.co.uk/forums/reporter-index.php?userid=332[/URL] One thing Davy Crockett Ranch has in common with Center Parcs is The March of the Dads* This time however, the march is not to collect your car (as you park outside your cabin) but to collect breakfast. For some reason best known to Mickey DCR's breakfast is a takeawa...

Full trip report index here: [URL]https://www.thedibb.co.uk/forums/reporter-index.php?userid=332[/URL] After a fitful night's sleep courtesy of the world's most uncomfortable bed (it felt like a bale of straw wrapped in potatoes) it was time to say goodbye to Compiegne. It's a beautiful little town and so close to Disney that I would recommend a stop if you can. The j...

Full trip report index here: [URL]https://www.thedibb.co.uk/forums/reporter-index.php?userid=332[/URL] It's our last day at Center Parcs and it's the time honoured tradition of "The March of the Dads" - virtually all the men of the households get up early to fetch the car! This explains my somewhat grumpy mugshot at 6.30 this morning!

Good morning from the Big Blue Hotel at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. It's a beautiful, sunny morning (and verrrrrry windy).

I'll be blogging my journey up from the south coast to Blackpool on Friday 6th, in readiness for our Grand Day Out at Blackpool Pleasure Beach with 100 wonderful DIBBers.

It's about 5 hours on my own on the train, so it would be great to have some DIBB co...
