Hi, All! My name is Linda. I'm married to a fellow Disney fan & have two boys in college. My life's goal is to go to all the Disney parks. The planned trip to the last two (Hong Kong & Shanghai) has been put on hold while I beat breast cancer!

#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...

#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  3416.9 #54 8:08PM
Good idea!  Thanks! - poppinspenguin  344.0 #803 3:53AM
Please add me for pikarich for the park maps since I know he collects them - UTDISNEYFAMILY  3416.9 #54 5:08PM
In English please.  - UTDISNEYFAMILY  3416.9 #54 5:11PM
Will do - one English chosen, two to go! - poppinspenguin  344.0 #803 5:20PM

Do you have anything left to RAK from DL Paris? I will even pay for shipping. Sorry late to this post. - CoachDisney  564.6 #427 6:56PM

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  344.0 #803 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  276.3 #1249 5:13AM

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  344.0 #803 8:54PM
Yes, but I think it should be left at hockey- they are from Minnesota after all. - PixiePrincessPolly  350.2 #785 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  344.0 #803 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!

Yes, thanks, we had a great time!  Crush's Coaster was open, and we road it each morning during our early entry!

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.
