Thank you so much @beentoall for the new Shanghai Disneyland Guidemap!!! My sister and I are very excited about our trip to China, even though it's been delayed to 2018. We WILL get there, though, as those are the last two parks on our Disney bucket list!!

#DL Paris pin RAK results. Congrats @tina7321! You were the closest without going over. We walked a lot during our week in Paris. The first day we got there, we were only able to spend half the day in the parks. Our first full day, we walked 17,111 steps! What we didn't know was that we would keep on walking quite so many. My sister converted all our steps to miles - 65.4! What's the most   More...

Throw Back Thursday to last week - Space Mountain #DL Paris style! This ride was ...out of this world! An outside launch, a revolution, and a couple corkscrews! I literally had a smile on my face but bruises on the shoulders!

I am not a big Space Mountain person, but I rode this 3 times when I was there.  So fun!! - DisneyManders  26.7 #6665 6:47PM

#RAK from DL Paris - Part two. I have three English and three French version park guides to give away. The first three MWers who want one of each language will win. So, there will be a total of six winners, one guide per person. Must have at least 25pts, ability to DM, and US mail only. See the photo of my souvenir haul for pics of the guides. Bon chance!

If you really want these gone fast, along with your other rak you'll want to move these posts to Disneyland talk. If you want to do that click the little clock in the upper right & select MP which stands for move post, then select Disneyland talk. You can also leave it here but not as many people visit the hub so the choice is yours - UTDISNEYFAMILY  2055.1 #87 8:08PM
Good idea!  Thanks! - poppinspenguin  299.7 #989 3:53AM
Please add me for @pikarich for the park maps since I know he collects them - UTDISNEYFAMILY  2055.1 #87 5:08PM
In English please.  - UTDISNEYFAMILY  2055.1 #87 5:11PM
Will do - one English chosen, two to go! - poppinspenguin  299.7 #989 5:20PM
Thank you so much - pikarich  6550.8 #21 7:35PM
Do you have anything left to RAK from DL Paris? I will even pay for shipping. Sorry late to this post. - CoachDisney  433.7 #547 6:56PM
I actually do have another DL Paris RAK going for the French version of the Inside Out pin! - poppinspenguin  299.7 #989 7:02PM
Please add me for the Alice pin. - djmickeymouse  10.3 #0 8:56PM
Sorry for any confusion but this RAK was just for the park guides.  This RAK has been closed.  I am doing a separate RAK for an Inside Out pin but one of the rules is having a minimum of 25 MW pts.  Keep posting or inputting wait times! - poppinspenguin  299.7 #989 3:06AM

#RAK from DL Paris! I'd like to RAK this "Vice Versa" aka Inside Out pin from DL Paris. Rules - US mail only, must have at least 25 pts, and ability to DM. Now for the fun part - to win, please guess the number of steps I took during my first full day at DLParis, without going over. I'll draw a name if there is a tie. RAK will close Saturday, Nov 21st at noon Disney CA time. Bon chance!

What a fun RAK. Please add me. I will say you had 20,000 steps. I bet it was an awesome trip. Thanks!  - keepmovingforward  264.9 #1291 5:13AM

Cute name to call the movie. Thanks for doing this rak. No need to add - misschurro  7865.5 #14 6:16AM
I like the Spanish translation too- Intensamente.  It means intensely but also with a play on words with the spanish word for mind. ;) - PixiePrincessPolly  217.5 #1857 3:38PM
Oh thanks for that tidbit! - misschurro  7865.5 #14 3:40PM
You got me curious about different versions, so I did a search on IMDB.  Funnily enough it said, in some countries, the sport game the father is thinking about at the dinner table is soccer instead of hockey.   - poppinspenguin  299.7 #989 8:54PM
Yes, but I think it should be left at hockey- they are from Minnesota after all. - PixiePrincessPolly  217.5 #1857 9:11AM

Thanks again, all!! We are flying non-rev/standby, so travel will be a little challenging.  Our original flight was cancelled but looks like all others are scheduled.  Lots of security here at CDG, so I feel very safe.  Strangely enough, my last international DL trip was to Tokyo, when they had the earthquake.  I may have some bad ju ju going on!  Keep those prayer for those hurt coming.  So sad to read stories of events.   - poppinspenguin  299.7 #989 10:32PM

In #DLParis, there are two parks - DL and Walt Disney Studios. WDS is on the smaller side but had the Hollywood area with ToT, the Toyland area, Ratatouille area, Crush Coaster ride, itty bitty Carsland, and lots of shows. Notice the opening day speech in French!

Are you enjoying it?  Disneyland Paris is one of my favourite parks:-) - beentoall  1304.7 #0 7:52AM
Yes, thanks, we had a great time!  Crush's Coaster was open, and we road it each morning during our early entry! Really could have done without all the smokers tho, no offense, but don't like breathing second hand smoke while walking around.  Looking forward to HK and Shanghai next! - poppinspenguin  299.7 #989 11:55AM

Hi, beentoall!  Yes, we did Tokyo parks - DisneySea.  Loved it and loved traveling in Japan.  China trip is planned for 2017 - hoping the Shanghai park bugs will be worked out by then!  Are you going to the Shanghai park when it opens? - poppinspenguin  299.7 #989 10:40PM

The Tower of Terror at #DLParis is just like the one in Anaheim vs the one in Florida. I'm not quite sure, but the doll on the couch looks a little diff. Lastly, maybe a die hard fan could tell me what Vivian West has to do with Tower of Terror? Her name was on a card in the book case. Hmmm.
