Buggy wrote: Oooh, I forgot to mention something special about French guests. "No smoking" is less a rule than a suggestion to be completely ignored. The quaint "no smoking in line" signs must have amused the French as they constantly lit up around us. And I'm sure they found the Cast Member's announcements amusing.
Sounds like Shanghai, except there, many people smoke inside restaurants or other buildings, even the owners!
Buggy wrote: So let me tell you this. Discoveryland is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. I am a big fan of the Steampunk Aesthetic and as I watched in awe as Space Mountain literally loaded a train as if it were a gun to shoot the passengers into space, I finally wished for something from France to actually be in Orlando.
I am looking forward to experiencing that Tomorrowland one day. They way you described Space Mountain like being shot into space sounds very cool. I still love our quaint 70s SM though ;) plus we have the Peoplemover!
Buggy wrote: PoTC was cool. It was a blast of nostalgia to watch the pirates chase the women and to not see even one instance of Jack Sparrow.
This is something I'm jealous of. I guess the French aren't offended like the non existent crowd of offended Americans that it took to change the American versions. And no Jack Sparrow - must be nice.

:thumbsup: Nor since I was there four years ago.

Our Bad Show Hotel had an in-room safe... that wasn't bolted down. Turned out to be a good thing, as we used it to climb up into our tub, which we couldn't have reached otherwise.

OK, I have pictures of the Bad Show Hotel. Let's see if this works.

Also one of Space Mountain 2.0

All the CMs we dealt with were nice and polite and spoke at least enough English to do their jobs. The French guests, well, perhaps not so much.

:cool:

That's excellent, thank you. It also reminds me that we need an "empty pockets" smilie (if there is such a thing). After years of apparent immunity (even most of the Disney books I've read were from the library), Disney finally snagged me with those stupid pins. :rolleyes:

Wow, that is in sad, sorry state. I wonder if a guest stole the picture from the wall?

I love your report. I hope to make a trip there one day. For now I will suffer at WDW
