Sitting looking out at a blizzard and thinking back to 1st March 2005 when we were definitely having our coldest ever visit to the parks. The cast members did a brilliant job to keep everything going, the characters gathered in the arcades hugging freezing kids and then the urns of soup appeared, never has powdered tomato soup tasted so good !! Our little one was wrapped up in a Thumper suit, her dad's jumper on top, a fleece blanket and 2 hotel towels on top of that and she was still shivering in her buggy. I remember we left the park early that day, after more soup, and enjoyed a not so cosy evening in the hotel with the 4 of us huddled in bed watching Tuck Everlasting. The upside, apart from the free soup, was that we had to delay leaving for an extra 2 nights as the roads up to Belgium for the ferry were blocked with snow. Ah, the good old days.
