KT does look really good in glasses
The fourth person is a family friend from Florida; she has been in quite a few trip reports.

Today we took a wonderful private group tour of the Paris Catacombs with a very informative Italian tour guide. He was awesome!
However, this small 18 person tour reminded me of exactly why I can never be a tour guide again and had to stop doing our public tours before I would go legit insane from my pure hatred of most people.
Many years ago, my twin sister and my mother did a tour of the Paris Catacombs, and they arrived so early that they were the only two people on the tour. They had a wonderful opportunity to see this eerie attraction in such an atmospheric 'silence.' I remember them saying that the chilling 'quiet' of the historic tombs totally enhanced their experience. So...I totally empathize with how a rowdy crowd could detract from your enjoyment of your tour there. By the way, one thing they ALSO experienced was the fun of a tour guide who was enjoying his favorite 'tipple' when they arrived. (And it wasn't a Starbucks!) He was in a GREAT mood and gave them a tour 'extraordinaire!") Enjoy the rest of your trip!
I liked DLP when I went last year, but I have to say, it really left me underwhelmed. When I went with my school trip in June, we couldn't go to the Studios park, which already was a bummer due to the missed credits on ToT, Rock n' Roller Coaster and Crush's Coaster, and when we first got to the park, both BTM and Space Mountain were shut down. BTM reopened later, but apparently, SM wasn't going to open until late July. It was fine, but it left me wanting more. The parade at the end totally made up for it all, though.
Can't wait for the rest of the TR! Are you guys gonna go to Italy too? I might be there!
Oh well, I guess I won't be riding any coasters any time soon... Within the next 10 minutes anyways. Best: Katun & iSpeed - Mirabilandia, Formula Rossa - Ferrari World, Oblivion - The Black Hole - Gardaland, Stealth - Thorpe Park

I laughed so hard at this after just experiencing something similar at Holiwood Nights last weekend. Walking up to the Saturday night dinner there was some kid standing there and I walk by wearing a Magnum XL-200 shirt hear him say in one of the most annoying voices I've ever heard "I know Magnum XL-200; the world's first hyper coaster." I just gave him a thumbs up and continued walking thinking "what enthusiast doesn't know what Magnum is?". Then he blurts out "Also worst restraints on a roller coaster ever." That's the point I got really annoyed. No one cares dude. But I just gave him another thumbs up, kept my mouth shut and kept walking.

At some point I need to get around to posting the last few years of trips; hopefully I can add a couple more photos to the great ones that Robb and Elissa have taken here.
The pic of the 3 girls in front of Le Louvre is one to frame, as is the selfie of the 4 of you with La Tour Eiffel in the background. Big smiles all around! I wrote down the name of the pizza place you went to as it looks amazing. Do you happen to know what arrondissement it was in?
