A Travel Agent's Work is Never Done.

I'm getting ready to head out to the airport for a week's conference in South Florida, and am busily trying to finalize some fabulous trip quotes for some great people before I leave. So many wonderful adventures to be enjoyed, and destinations to discover and explore! I love being busy, and I love helping people explore our great big beautiful world! Where can I help you discover something new?

Tuesday Trivia - A Primary Change for Phantom Manor

Unlike her predecessors in Anaheim, Orlando and Japan, the story of Phantom Manor begins the moment guests enter its' foyer as a faint image of the ill-fated bride appears in an ornately framed mirror and the Ghost Host begins to tell her tale of lost love.

Today in Disney Parks and Resorts History - Disneyland Paris

Euro Disneyland  (today known as Disneyland Paris)
Marne-La-Vallee, France 

Euro Disneyland officially opens in Paris' eastern suburb of Marne-La-Vallee and inaugural ceremonies are broadcast to the entire European continent by five national television networks.  Preparations and initial estimates indicated up to 500,000 visitors would arrive, but only y 50,000 are admitted due to protests from French people who fear their culture will be hijacked and damaged by the Disney park and its Americanized products and experiences.  Blacking out road signs to the resort on surrounding roads, power cables are vandalized by some citizens among other disruptive behavior. The fourth Magic Kingdom style park is only part of the new resort, which also includes Festival Disney, a shopping and dining area, as well as five hotels:  Hotel Cheyenne, Santa Fe, Newport Bay Club, Hotel New York and Disneyland Hotel as well as Davy Crockett Ranch, a campground resort located several miles away from the main resort area.  Disneyland Hotel is situated directly in front of the main entrance to the newest Disneyland theme park, with many resort rooms directly overlooking the theme park itself.
