The Happiest Place on Earth - no brass knuckles allowed

We are preparing for a trip to you know where.  It is a surprise to our boys.  We are leaving in two days and we are only going to tell them the morning of...with monogrammed "ear" hats that we ordered for them.

Anyhoo, as we took a look at their website (which is poorly designed) we came upon the list of prohibited items...I thought I would share it with you as many of them are hysterical.  I think my favorite might be "no cremated remains"...without further ado...

Items not permitted include, but are not limited to:

  1. ha. the rules are very diff (i'm sure) at Disney Paris. If there are rules. No alcohol? HA. No smoking? HA Brass knuckles? Perhaps.

  2. I LOVE THIS! And what I love even more is that you KNOW the reason that many of these are on there is because someone did try to bring their dead Granddad into the park and scatter his remains in the Its a small world water. You just KNOW IT!

    Have so much fun. We can't wait until peanut is older so we can go!

  3. You've just put me off for life! (Although I have been to Disney Hong Kong, but that's a whole other story ...)

  4. What? No pots & pans?!?!? I mean, reallly. Who goes to a theme park without their pots & pans?
