Well I thought it was about time I got my act together & get on with my Pre Trip Report.....so make yourself comfy & let the planning begin!!! :cool1:


The Cast:

Me = Claire (will be 34 at time of trip :eek:)
DH = Lee (will be 35 at time of trip)

http://i701.photobucket.com/albums/ww11/pinky_276/Dec%2008%20trippie/IMG_8887.jpg


This will be our 6th Trip to the "Place where the Magic happens", our last one being in December 2008 when we had a fantastic 17 nights & our first experience at Christmastime in WDW. :santa:

I should point out that December was supposed to be our last trip to WDW for a while as we both want to travel to other countries. However last August when they announced Free Dining & 40% off I decided to just have a little look at the pricing. Lee was lying on our sofa having broken a bone in his hand the day before & was dosed up to the eyeballs on strong pain killers when I discovered the amazing prices! :worship: So what is a girl to do? She should get her unconcious husband to agree to another trip of course! :rotfl2: Lee really isn't a big Disney fan & just goes along with it to please me :lovestruc but he managed to murmur a "thats a good price" & I had it booked within seconds before he had time to come to his senses. :lmao: :cool1: :woohoo:

I booked 14 nights at Old Key West with Free Dining & a 14 day park hopper but within a few days I had managed to persuade hubby that we should do a short cruise whilst we are there to see if we like it. :rolleyes1 With that in mind I changed our Disney UK booking to 13 nights at Old Key West with Free Dining & a 21 day park hopper followed by a 4 night Cruise on the "Wonder" & how rude would it be if we came back off the cruise & just came home? :teeth: A little bit more persuading got me 4 more nights staying at SSR (AHEM - :rolleyes1 ;) - more on that later!) when we disembark....so in total we have an amazing 21 nights in Disney Heaven!!! :cloud9:

Fast forward to 2009 as I didn't do any other planning last year (other than booking our flights & paying in full for the cruise when the $ was 2 for 1! :yay:) as I wanted to have something to look forward to when we got back from our December trip to help combat those Post Disney Blues. Once Christmas & New Year were behind us I started to plan, there were one or two things we missed in December due to us both being ill, me the first half of the trip & Lee the second half. :headache: The main one being a trip to the Kennedy Space Center, we have never been before & although I could take it or leave it I think Lee would enjoy it so that is a definate for September.

Other things that I have booked so far are the Hilton Gatwick Hotel for the night before the flight, I got a great deal using Tesco Club Card Vouchers thanks to a thread from Joh (Wilma-bride) :thumbsup2. I also booked the car park at Gatwick when BCP had an early booking offer on, 23 days parking for 109!! I've also rented a car for 10 days with Alamo (at the Swan/Dolphin). So everything is booked & paid for in full, most of the spending money is loaded onto our FairFx Cards, I just want to get a few $$$ in cash. Now I am sitting back waiting for the September hours & the ADR window to open up. :rolleyes:

I'll leave it there for now & will post my plans & adr's in the next day or so...

Sounds great so far Claire. Love the thought of you taking advantage of your 'high' husband to book it in the first place, and then thinking it would be 'rude' to fly straight home after the cruise. :lmao:

I'm sure you will love SSR, it's a lovely resort and we had a great time there last month. :thumbsup2

Are us blokes really that easy to take advantage of :scared1:

Remind me to never get dosed up on pain killers if my DW is ever planning anything. Sounds like us fellas need our wits about us at all times.

Great trip in the making. Hope it all goes to plan.

Can't wait to hear if DH breaks his foot between now and then and you end up staying on an extra couple of weeks to do Disneyland Calafornia, followed by a short hop over to Hong Kong

No not yet, Claire! I really need to sit down and discuss a whole host of holiday things with DH but life just seems to keep getting in the way... :sad2: He's away at the mo and won't be able to take anything I say onboard as he's distracted by work issues. I will let you know as soon as I get to speak with him properly... :hug: FWIW I'm leaning towards the MNSSHP as it'll be on our doorstep... :thumbsup2

No, but my DH can always embarrass everyone by asking a CM (any CM) for the wine list!!! ;) :rotfl: :thumbsup2

Years ago, we were having lunch in Tony's and he asked for the wine list. The server gave him such a look - like a cross between pitying and dirty - before saying "There will be no alcohol in the Magic Kingdom! Sir!!!" It's now family legend and every so often DH likes to have had a boozy beverage before making his way to MK and shouting "There's alcohol in here now, Walt!!!" :rolleyes1

Thank you all for reading along.

Here are the plans I have made so far, all though I should say they have changed many times already & I am sure they will change again once the park hours are released! :laughing: Anyway for now they are as follows:

Sun 6th Sept: Overnight stay at the Hilton Gatwick.

Mon 7th Sept: Flight (Virgin PE), Magical express to OKW, unpack & either counter service or Olivias?

Tue 8th Sept: I am sure as usual we will be wide awake by 4 am :eek: so we will head to Hollywood Studios for opening & stay until mid afternoon. The plan is to head over to the boardwalk & grab some lunch, we may try ESPN as we haven't eaten there before. After lunch we will pop over to the Dolphin to collect our hire car then drive to Walmart/Publix to pick up some essentials....Alcohol! ;) Not sure where we will eat this evening yet?

Weds 9th Sept: The plan is to head to Kennedy Space Center today, then in the evening pop to DTD for dinner at Raglan Road & probably a bit of shopping. :yay:

Thurs 10th Sept: Epcot today! Hoping to book Chefs de France for lunch & were thinking of trying Teppan Edo for dinner....but I am not convinced.

Fri 11th Sept: After drooling over some pics on here we are going to go to IHOP for breakfast this morning & then to either Prime Outlets or Mall at Millenia for a little shopping. :woohoo: Afterwards we will relax for a while at OKW before heading to Magic Kingdom for our first ever MNSSHP!!!! :dance3:

Sat 12th Sept: Animal Kingdom is the choice for today, we will have a counter service lunch then I am not sure where we will go for dinner tonight. :confused3 I am having so much difficulty choosing from all the yummy menu's.

Sun 13th Sept: Today will be Seaworld!! Dinner at the Yachtsmen Steakhouse tonight....we had a bad experience here in December (bad service & Lee had bad food) but I am going to give it another go as it gets great reviews.

Mon 14th Sept: Shop, Shop & more shopping!!!! We will probably go to the Florida Mall & either Prime outlets or Mall at Millenia today.

Tues 15th Sept: I want to book the Backstage Magic tour for today. Then I am hoping to get an ADR for Le Cellier tonight followed by either Illuminations or hop over to DHS for Fantasmic.

Weds 16th Sept: I have left a spare day here so we may head over to Typhoon Lagoon or just relax in the resort. Late afternoon we will head to DTD for some shopping & dinner at Raglan Road again (we are limited with choice as not that many restaurants at DTD are on the DDP) or we may just go to Wolfgang Puck Express & use up some CS credits.

Thurs 17th Sept: Off to Busch Gardens today! :yay: Hopefully I won't get stopped for speeding again this time though. :laughing: We will stop off on the way back for dinner offsite. I am currently thinking of trying Ruby Tuesdays but once again I keep changing my mind on this one?

Claire, I don't know what you were thinking but you left one or two things out!!!

Weds 9th Sept: The plan is to head to Kennedy Space Center today, then in the evening pop to DTD for dinner at Raglan Road & probably a bit of shopping. Ensure red carpet in situ at BLT for arrival of Dick& Kaz...

Fri 11th Sept: After drooling over some pics on here we are going to go to IHOP for breakfast this morning & then to either Prime Outlets or Mall at Millenia for a little shopping. :woohoo: Afterwards we will relax for a while at OKW before heading to Magic Kingdom for our first ever MNSSHP. We will be chaperoned by Dick & Kaz in full Cap'n Jack/Liz Swann regalia!!!

Sat 12th Sept: Animal Kingdom is the choice for today, we will have a counter service lunch then I am not sure where we will go for dinner tonight. :confused3 I am having so much difficulty choosing from all the yummy menu's. See Dick & Kaz off on their journey to Port Canaveral. Drive to the Port and re-lay red carpet...

Sat 19th Sept: Get the bus to DHS again, have lunch at Sci Fi & stay at park until after Block Party Bash, head back to the resort to pack our cases. May go over to DTD to grab some dinner not sure yet. Head to VWL with red carpet and get everything ready for the arrival of Kaz & Sophie.

Sounds good Claire.

I can remember reading about you getting pulled over by the police in December. I would have been scared stiff.:scared1:


:lmao: I was! I think thats why he let me off as I was shaking so much!


:rotfl2::lmao::rotfl2: TBH I'm used to it by now but I'm willing to offer incentives that may ensure good behaviour... ;) How about any embarrassing shenanigans and we will have to be treated to new Pandora bracelets - and I'm talking about the 14kt gold one!!! :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl: Bet we wouldn't hear a peep!!! :rolleyes1

That's a fab idea! Lee will zip his mouth totally shut!

You will see I have made the necessary amendments... ;) :rolleyes1 :thumbsup2

:lmao: :lmao: :lmao: That's hilarious!!!!

I thought you were going to be arranging the red carpet & champagne for us at the Poly???? :confused3 As for propping you & Sophie up around The world? I was relying on you to do that for me? ;) I have a feeling Lee would leave us to it! :laughing:

I'll tell Lee he is going to be a hunky bell service for the day! I probably won;t be able to post his response on the family board though. :teeth:

Are you & Richard really going to dress up? We don't know whether to or not?

Ohhhhh I was hoping we could do Sunday twice! :rotfl: Thanks for pointing that out when I got to the end I was confused as I thought we left on Monday not Tuesday. DOH!

Thanks hun, we can't wait to spend the day there. I may try & book the restaurant where we had our wedding meal with the family, it would be lovely to have lunch there.

Once it's your time to board, Claire you walk through the Mickey Ears-shaped doorway in the terminal, have your KTTW card swiped, get your pic taken by the photographers and then walk onto the Wonder...

As you step aboard, a cast member asks your name and announces you with a microphone!!! And all the cast members (and other cruisers if they're like me) stand around clapping!!! It's so cool!!! And it gets me ever time... :cloud9:

It crossed my mind ages ago but I didn't even think about doing it whilst docked in Nassau. :upsidedow How did you go about arranging yours? Do Disney have a website with options & pricing?

Another thing that I stopped me is we've only been married 8 years....isn't it just the celebs that renew their vows after a week. :lmao: Mind you saying that we have been together for 17 years....which just dawned on me is more of my lifetime with him than without! :eek:

Here's a link! (http://www.disneyweddings.go.com/site/vow/cru/start/index.jsp) The cost of an onboard VR is $1500 OR you can do it at Castaway Cay for $2500 - that wasn't an option when we did ours. :rolleyes: If I remember rightly, I rang them up to see if there was availability for the sailing - I think they only have two slots for VRs... :goodvibes

I wish we'd done it earlier as it was just so much beeping fun and it would have been nice when the kiddiwinks were little!!! I loved it so much... :cloud9:

Sorry, Claire - me again! Seems I can't leave you alone at the moment!!! :goodvibes Not only that BUT it's completely 100% :offtopic:...

Moments ago I received an email from Kuoni featuring a hotel called Atlantis, the Palm. So it looks just like the Atlantis...

...and has all the features (leap of faith, the enormous aquarium) but it's in Dubai!!!

Did you know anything about this?? Anyway, it seemed to me that would be a perfect vow renewal venue for guys that had married at the Bahamas one so I just had to share... :rolleyes1

Yes I did hun. I knew about it a few years ago when they decided to build it, I found out as one of my friends owned a property on the Palm.

I would love to stay there if & when we go back to Dubai. :thumbsup2 It looks gorgeous, I saw a programme on tv a while back when it opened. LUSH!!!!

I have been looking at the vow renewals & although I would love to do it (as a surprise) I think maybe in a few years on our next cruise.....fingers crossed.

Your trip sounds like so much fun! 21 days!! The longest I've ever been to WDW was 7 days and it definitely was not enough. I'm quite envious of your itinerary and to have 2 nights of MNSSHP. Love it. We went last year and had the best time. We ran out of time to do everything we wanted and DS was exhausted by 10:15. The parade was great! We're planning on going the 18th this time.

You are really going to enjoy the Wonder. When we first got on for the first time this May, it was the most amazing feeling. See you on the boat!

Ok it's time for an update!

Yesterday I managed to book dinner & brunch at Palo for our cruise! :yay: :yay: :yay: I am so happy about that after hearing so many wonderful things about it!!!! :cool1: I also booked a Spa treatment for both of us. :thumbsup2


Today after a very stressful start I have managed to book the first 10 days of my ADR's this morning!!! It was a nightmare as I got straight through this morning to be told that the system had been upgraded overnight but it wasn't working so to call back in a few hours. :headache: At which point I wanted to cry. Why does things like this always happen to me? :rolleyes:

Anyhow after feeling sick for the next 90 mins & trying calling back two or three times (ish) :rolleyes1 to no avail. Finally I managed to get through & was able to start making them. Phew!!! We got all the way through them & at the end when she processed them & gave me all the reservation numbers there were two missing. :scared: I then spent the next 35 mins on hold whilst she tried everything she could & had help from others to secure the last two....thankfully she managed it! :worship: :cheer2: I am so lucky to have got everything I wanted for the first 10 days & now feel I can relax a bit as I only need to call for one per day. (Fingers crossed still)

Anyway I have booked the following so far:
Le Cellier
Narcoosee's
Yachtsmen Steakhouse
Chefs de France (lunch)
Teppan Edo
Olivias x 2
Sci Fi
Planet Hollywood

I have already booked T-Rex & Raglan Road too.

Still to book:
Ohana brekkie
Kona Brekkie & lunch
California Grill
Le Cellier

I also booked the Backstage Magic Tour aswell this morning & a few surprises along the way for Lee! ;)

I am so excited today! I can't wait for Lee to get back from Turkey tonight so I can tell him all about it - well most of it! :dance3:

Monarch didn't have a spare so had to fly the part over from Luton (5 hour flight). At 4am this morning they finally got put in to a hotel, I have just had a text from him to say they are sat on the plane again awaiting take off - so fingers crossed it will be ok this time.

So glad Lee is home safe+sound :thumbsup2,but that will teach him to go away+leave you on your own again ;) :goodvibes.Did you get something nice-not a golf ball saying Turkey on it i hope :lmao:.x.

Hmmm funny you should say that ~ he always gets a golf ball with the name of the course on it when he plays somewhere overseas....but knows better than to give it to me (he knows where i'd put it! :teeth: ;) )

I got 3 lovely new charms for my Pandora bracelet. :yay: :love:

Wow, your trip sounds amazing! I'll be reading along with special interest on your cruise since we will be cruising for the first time in December. Your TR should be amazing. Sounds like you did get a great deal.

Thanks everyone for reading along. :thumbsup2

:scared1:

Look at that, even when I'm away I get abuse!!!

Love your ADRs Claire - Pretty much exactly what I will be booking for next year :)

Sounds like you had a mare sorting them out though! Hope the next round is a little easier!

Hope Lee is home safe and sound now :)


It's fun giving you abuse about your TR.....you can take it. ;)

I can't book my other adr's until next friday, due to the cruise & change of resort so it's 90 days from the date of check in at the Poly. :headache:

I thought I would give an update on my adr's for the last part of our stay.

24th Sept - we have a 1pm ressie at T-Rex! YUM! I can't wait to eat here again as I really enjoyed it last December.

25th Sept - We will be having brekkie in Kona Cafe - I am desperate to try Tonga Toast! Tonight is our second round of MNSSHP & I have made an adr for The Plaza.

26th Sept - I am pleased to have secured a table for California Grill this evening! I did want it for the 27th (our last night) but oh well, I am just pleased to have got it at all. :goodvibes

27th Sept - Today is breakfast with Lilo & Stitch at Ohana, then in the evening Coral Reef (I did want Le Cellier but couldn't get it but we have it in the first week so not that worried).

28th Sept - Our last morning :sad1: I have got a lunch ressie at Kona Cafe as we will be getting the Magical Express bus back to the airport from the Poly. However I may cancel that if we decide to spend longer in MK & eat at the airport instead.


I think that's all of them now - unless I can get a dinner slot at Ohana but it seems unlikely at the moment. :headache:

The only other updates are that I have started to buy a few fish Extender gifts but we only have a few taking part so far, 8 adults & 3 kids (excluding us). I have also ordered some magnetic sheets as I want to make some magnets for our cabin door.

I have been topping up my fairfx card when the rate has been over 1.62, I also forgot that we didn't use hubby's fairfx card in December & that was loaded with $1000 at $2 for 1!!!! :cool1: :cheer2: :yay: Just need to get a bit of cash & were sorted. :thumbsup2

I have also renewed our passports (don't know where those 10 years have gone! :confused3), filled in our ESTA, Virgin API info & DCL online check in & pre paid for our photopass. :dance3:

Not much else left to do really apart from wait! :headache:

Just over 7 weeks to go now!!!! :woohoo:

Don't worry - I don't need any encouragement on the shopping front, that's why I am taking 2 empty cases. :lmao:

I can't believe I missed reading your pre trip report up to now - your plans sound great.:thumbsup2

We loved the Wonder last year - I'm sure you'll have a great time. It's a shame you will be sunning yourself at Castaway Cay instead of being at the DIS meet on 22 September - we'll raise a glass for you!

Looks like we're both heading for DHS on 19th September - it's our first morning and it's early entry but will keep an eye out for you as we get swept along towards TSM when the rope drops!

Look forward to reading about your adventures when you return.

Thanks hun. I got your message earlier & will choose something nice for you. ;) I doubt I will get chance to reply as we are leaving midday tomorrow to take the dogs to my parents then onto the airport.

I will probably pop on at some point as we are taking the netbook with us.

:rotfl2: I can't make any promises about being good & driving slowly. :rolleyes1

I have spent what seems like the entire day packing & tidying up, just had a long soak in the bath but don't think I'll get much sleep tonight.....I am :hyper:!!!!

Take care all & i'll catch up soon. xxx

Don't worry about replying to my PM-your message above is fine :hug:.
I was thinking,why be a good girl just because your on holiday :rolleyes1 :laughing:,your not any other time :laughing: :goodvibes.
I am the same,the day before i go through the house top 2 toe,at least you will come back to a gleaming house :thumbsup2.
Looking forward to what you choose :idea:.
Once again take care friend+speak soon :hug:.x.
