    THE BACKSTORY BEHIND WHY THE DREAM LIVES ON.................popcorn::

    (love this song - always puts me n a vacation mood).....FYI - a better version of it is on ITUNES.



    .......Can be explained in a few steps.....
    With me having fun redecorating the House recently and...




    you know.....buying things for my Dec 30th Birthday / Christmas :santa:when
    just something about collecting all things Disney just all of a sudden grabbed a hold of me and it all started with a map I bought off of E bay the other you see in the above video -


    and also what jumped out at me were some pretty neat pictures of DISneyana:
    [​IMG]

    and
    [​IMG]
    (got 5 more of these kind of pictures)


    just to give you an idea. Now the framed map is now located over the fireplace and the other pictures (even got some of the HM stretching Room:woohoo:) are up in the living room , hallway and in the upstairs spare bedroom.


    But that map......
    It always brings a smile to my heart every time I see for a wide variety of reasons.:goodvibes


    it always brings a smile to my face as it brings back all the fun memories I have had visiting both DISney parks in the United States........


    But.....
    something has always eluded me these past two years......:confused3


    ** A VACATION TO A DISNEY PARK OVERSEAS**



    and you combine that with
    I'm working with a Guest of ours a few months back who is from of all places Paris -
    she visits DISney Paris often.....

    I give her my one and only DISney Paris lanyard pin ....
    thinking she would have better use for it than me -

    (A Cheshire Cat Eiffel Tower pin I also got off of EBAY)
    [​IMG]
    I mean hey, I thought if I couldn't go nor use it, why not pay it forward and give it to someone who can....:smickey:



    Then,
    very recently - DISney buys Disneyland Paris.......................:thumbsup2:thumbsup2


    Few months go by.........
    BUT THEN.........
    About a week ago -


    and on a whim,
    I decided to look up an approx 8 month old email I got from a
    Michael Renfrow from http://www.conciears.com/

    because when he and I last spoke 8 months ago ish, he let me in on a "secret" of sorts that I didnt know which IMO is the causal of all these starts/stops starts stops with trying to go to a DISney Park overseas::teleport:


    ** THAT ALL DISNEY PARKS OVERSEAS ARE OWNED & OPERATED NOT FRANCHISED**


    and he seemed .....like me - very frustrated that I am the "umpeenth" request he has been getting to go overseas but that its next to impossible to book a trip overseas due to the Parks being O & Oed. Example: He calls n2 the TA que and makes a request and its like rolling the dice in seeing whether or not the request would even be answered or even answered in a reasonably timely fashion.:confused3:confused:



    BUT....
    to go back to that map -


    just put me in a DISney mood:goofy:



    So I
    emailed Michael.......

    called him about three days ago to follow up and what he said TOTALLY FLOORED ME and I will admit crying with tears of happiness once I got off the phone with him.:sad:





    DETAILS COMING UP -popcorn::
