A & J’s Big Adventure – Part 3

Since it was looking like this outside and our train was supposed to leave in a couple of hours we were getting nervous.

We kept checking the Eurostar twitter and they were canceling trains left and right but ours was still scheduled to leave Disney at 7:30pm.  We got to the train station a little early and waited in line.  We waited and waited and waited until 9:30pm and they said the train was coming soon.  Eventually around 10:30pm they announced the train was canceled.  It turned into chaos!  700 people stranded at the very very cold train station.  Parents were screaming because their children were cold, hungry and tired. No one knew what was going on.  They couldn’t even tell us when the next train was scheduled to go to London.  Eventually they put us up in hotels and told us to come back to the train station tomorrow.  The room they gave us had bunkbeds (and a full sized bed).

This is when we realized that we were going to miss our flight from London to NY on Monday.  Plan B was devised (after me freaking out for a good hour) and it turns out Delta had already canceled our flight to NY because there was a blizzard in London as well.

Up Next: Plan B (not the birth control).

A & J’s Big Adventure – Part 2

Days 2 & 3 were spent in Disneyland Park. I never thought I’d be at Disney in the cold or snow but I guess this proves you can never say never.

The first ride we went on was It’s A Small World!

We took the train around the park.

Saw cute Mickey shaped bread.

Again we went on all of the rides (even the little kiddie rides) and we never had to wait more than 30 minutes which was great! The park is smaller than Disney World and they didn’t have the turkey legs that Jon was so excited for.

How pretty is the castle at night?

Up Next: It all starts going downhill from here….

Words Cannot Explain

Well we finally made it to the US.  Euro Disney looked like this.

So we were stuck there for an extra day.  Then London looked like this:

So we couldn’t go back to London so we went to Paris instead.

We made it to NYC via Charles de Gualle airport instead of Heathrow. Stayed in NY/NJ for a couple of days and then headed to Florida to visit more family and it’s freezing here.  Well we are in Florida but there is a huge blizzard in NY so our plans have changed again and we are headed back to NYC earlier than expected.

Snow has followed us around the world at this point and is out to get us!

2010 was not my year for flights.  I’m hoping 2011 will be a much better year for me in that aspect because we have a lot of traveling planned.

Off to the movies because what else do you do in cold Florida?!?!
