“Monsieur Paul restaurant introduces the culture and the authentic taste of French cuisine that Chef Paul Bocuse introduced to the world,” says Jerome Bocuse, son of the famous French chef and president and owner of the company that runs the new restaurant re-opening December 11 in the France Pavilion at Epcot World Showcase.
Upscale but less formal than the former Bistro de Paris, the new decor captures classic French architecture with fresh colors and a touch of modernism. “The newly renovated restaurant inherits the air of hospitality of my father’s restaurant as each staff member goes above and beyond to offer the warmest, most inviting service possible,” says Jerome.
Epic Mickey 2 – The Power of Two came out last month and My Daughter and I have not put this game down since. It is so much fun and is easy to pick up and play for just a few minutes or a few hours. There is so much to do and explore we just love it!
Here is some info about the game:
In “Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two,” gamers will play as Mickey Mouse and for the first time ever, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney’s first cartoon star, in an all-new adventure of creativity and discovery. Created by industry luminary Warren Spector and Disney Interactive’s Junction Point game development studio, “Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two” returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit toWasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners – Mickey with his magical paintbrush that wields paint and thinner, and Oswald with his powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity.
We want to share with you (thanks to our friends at Disney) your very own copy of Epic Mickey 2! This week we are giving away 5 copies of Epic Mickey 2 – The Power of Two on any game console (even the WiiU) and we are even throwing in a pair of Oswald Ears too!

Taking an infant to Disney World is very difficult.
Now, I know that a lot of you are going to comment and say that you took a young child and it went just fine and to you I say “Bravo, my friend.” But for the rest of us, it can be a lot of work. But it’s also not impossible, not if you plan well and lower your expectations just a little bit. With just a few adjustments to your usual vacation strategy, you can make traveling with an infant a lot easier.
Sleeping arrangements are probably the most important decision you’ll make when traveling with an infant. Ideally, you’ll get as much space you can afford. Even babies who normally sleep through the night may change their sleep patterns in an unfamiliar place. If its just you and your partner, it’s not that big of an issue; you’re probably not getting much sleep anyway. But if there are other children in the room or if you’re travelling with extended family, you’re going to want some space so that those who aren’t getting up at night with the baby can actually sleep. I usually prefer to stay on site, but you pay a premium for extra space on Disney property. Consider getting two connecting value rooms or stay in a Disney Vacation Club property. If that’s outside of your budget, now is the time to try an off site rental home or condo.
By the time your baby was just a few weeks old, you probably discovered that babies don’t travel light: You need diapers, wipes, food, and an extra change of clothes just to drive to the grocery store. Babies simply don’t vacation without a lot of ”stuff.” The great thing about Orlando is that its super kid friendly, so you’ll find everything you need fairly easily, if not cheaply. Most hotels provide cribs free of charge. Disney provides Pack N Plays at all resorts. They also have a limited number of cribs at some resorts. Both Pack N Plays and cribs at Disney resorts are sturdy and in good condition. Most rental homes will have a crib and a highchair for you to use, although it’s a good idea to check in advance, particularly if you’re renting from an individual owner rather than a rental agency. You can rent baby equipment, including strollers, cribs, and highchairs, from several companies in Orlando; most will deliver right to your resort and set up for you.
