Disneyland Paris

Stinky hops from paw to paw as he awaits Periwinkle’s arrival. He has asked her to get to his house early, as they have a full day of adventure ahead of them. Right on time, he hears that familiar whoosh, and Periwinkle comes tumbling out of the teleportation tunnel into his waiting paws. After a few paw hugs and whisker kisses, Stinky grabs her paw and pulls her back into the tunnel.

When they emerge, Periwinkle’s head is spinning. As she tries to catch her breath, Stinky says, “Welcome to Disneyland Paris! This day 30 years ago, Disneyland Paris opened as Euro Disney, and I thought it would be fun to celebrate that anniversary.”

Periwinkle doesn’t really hear everything he says, as she gets stuck on the word Paris, and she replies with a question, “Paris, we are in Paris? My angel sisfur, Allie, told me about her trip to Paris with Mau and how wonderful it was!”

”I hope you won’t be disappointed, but we are actually about 23 miles from Paris, and we won’t be going there today,” Stinky tells her.

Periwinkle looks disappointed but tells Stinky, “You know, I am happy as long as I am with you.”

Stinky takes her paw again and tells her he’s always happy when they are together. He also tells her they need to get going as they have lots to see. But first they need to make a quick stop and get in character for the day.

Donning Mouse Ears

“These ears are really cool, but they sure are huge. I hope I don’t fall over,” says Periwinkle.

“Don’t worry I’m right here to catch you if you start to wobble,” Stinky tells her.

“Don’t you think it’s silly that cats are wearing mouse ears?” asks Periwinkle.

“It is pretty funny,” says Stinky. “Do you remember when I dressed up as a mouse?” Stinky asks Periwinkle.

“Oh I do. You were adorable! But if anybody missed it, they can see your photo on the post, ‘Simply Irresistible.’ And they can take it from me that you were.” Stinky blushes, but Periwinkle doesn’t notice and continues, “Wow, Stinky, this place is huge. We’ll never be able to see everything, so can we please start at the castle? That’s always the centerpiece of the Disney Parks.”

Sleeping Beauty Castle

Stinky agrees and tells Periwinkle a little about the castle as they walk there. “This is the French Sleeping Beauty Castle, or Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant, as it’s officially called. It is 167 feet tall. It’s been recently restored and is home to a large sleeping dragon that occasionally awakens, puffs smoke and roars.”

“I sure hope that doesn’t happen while we are here,” Periwinkle tells him.

“This is gorgeous. It sure would be fun to live here,” Periwinkle gushes. She continues, “I could be Sleeping Beauty and you could wake me with a whisker kiss.”

Stinky giggles, blushes again and gives her a whisker kiss. 


Then the tabbies scamper off to look around and try out some rides. There is way too much for them to see in one visit, so they pick a few things to do.

They decide to start at The Land of Fairy Tales (Le Pays des Contes de Fées) and hop on one of the boats. Mid-way through the ride, they hop off.

“Stinky, this is so cute and just our size.” After wandering around, the tabbies hop back on a boat and finish the ride. From there they continue to several others.

They ride the Orbitron®, a Leonardo Da Vinci attraction. Next the tabbies visit the haunted house, Phantom Manor, but Periwinkle claims it too scary to go in. Next they head to the Indiana Jones Temple of Peril. Instead of getting on the ride, Stinky suggests they climb around the sight. Periwinkle knows how much Stinky enjoys climbing on things and agrees.

Stinky and Periwinkle continue on to Alice’s Curious Labyrinth where they spy a huge Cheshire Cat on the hillside.

The tabbies spend a little time wandering through the Labyrinth. As they are departing it, Stinky tells Periwinkle it is also time for the parade and show, “Dream… and Shine Brighter!” He explains that it’s a new show featuring more than 30 Disney characters clothed in new anniversary costumes, and they don’t want to miss it. Periwinkle tells Stinky that it sounds like fun, but she is starving. Stinky says that he’s hungry too, and they can stop at a snack bar and pick up something to eat as they walk.

They stop at the Cookie Kitchen on Main Street. Each select a different cookie and eat them as they find a good place to watch the parade. When the parade starts, the tabbies are excited to see so many Disney characters, hear 17 great Disney songs and watch all the dancers perform.

Meeting Minnie & Mickey

At the end of the stage performances, Micky and Minnie notice the tabbies in the crowd and invite them on stage for a photo op.

Periwinkle and Stinky are so surprised and excited, they are both speechless. After the photo Mickey helps them down from the stage. The tabbies are tired and realize it is about time to head home even though they have only seen a very small number of the attractions. But they both agree before heading back to their tunnel. they would like to take a few more photos. The first is with the large 30th anniversary sign.

Before heading to their teleportation tunnel for the trip home, they take time for a final photo op with Disney characters.

Saying Good-Bye

“I am going to set the coordinates in the teleportation tunnel to drop you off at your house, Periwinkle, and then reset for my house. It has been such a long day, and I don’t want to make it longer for you.”

“Thanks, Stinky, I really am exhausted. I wish we could have seen more of the Park, but maybe we can come back in the future.” Stinky assures her that they can. Before entering the teleportation tunnel Periwinkle & Stinky share lots of whisker kisses and paw hugs, and Periwinkle thanks Stinky for a fun adventure.

Periwinkle and Stinky join paws, enter the teleportation tunnel, and in a whoosh they are on their way home.
