Can you keep a secret - I'm going on Saturday!!

Can't quite believe it but we have just booked a late deal going Saturday 5th May!

I'll blame it on DH. We were supposed to be going away for a night or two for our 10th anniversary in May.

Yesterday he spotted the great prices on Cosmos and started saying why not? So we got the leave approved at work 'just in case' (4 days it's a bank hol)

After uhmming and arrging last night have now booked for the 3 of us for 7 nights at bahama bay in a 2 bed condo flying Monarch from Manchester.

Grand total for flights and accomodation was £903.30 less 4% quidco.

Still need to sort car hire and tickets.

Any car hire deals around Wayne? Need 7 nights one driver from Sanford - prefer full size or SUV.

Also haven't told DD - hoping we can keep it a secret until the airport.

Bahama bay - 2 bed apartment.

Never been before but looks ok on trip advisor.

They did have some cheaper hotels but the reviews were pretty scary.

We used one of Wayne's link's for an Intermediate SUV through Holiday Auto's which was an Alamo rental.

A week I think at the moment will be about £124 and Wayne's link we used was at http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/other...worldwide.html, look at thread #3 for link via Quicdco for extra discount.

http://www.holidayautos.co.uk/cgi-bi...ff=xoneaccount

Have a great week planning and a magical holiday and 10th anniversary.

Lol, they always are. I've never once seen them to be accurate, though.

Congrats on your trip!

Went for the dodge charger through netflights (dollar) - anyone know how dollar express works at sanford?

Also booked airport parking.

Just need to sort some tickets. Going to do legoland again as DD enjoyed it and we had a spare child's ticket from last time.

Probably going to do one day MK and one day Epcot (have never seen flower and garden festival) Is gate price only option at this late stage for a 2 day ticket?

DD also wants to go and see Winter the dolphin at clearwater aquarium so will do that aswell (she is currently watching Dolphin tale film again)

She doesn't suspect a thing - just thinks i'm planning October trip like usual. Made my last October adr today aswell.

.
We saw the displays in Epcot at Easter - you have to take DD to the butterfly garden and pixie hollow garden . they are lovely.

our DD did a treasure hunt sheet to find the various displays which was fun to do alongside her Epcot passport . there is a separate park map you can pick up too that has all the displays listed.

I loved Lotso bear he even smells of strawberries

Thanks for the tips - i'm so looking forward to flower festival.

DD loves Epcot - did a passport last time along with colouring duffy bear.

DH has just made this for DD. Think we are going to put it in an envelope with a big gold invitation saying come and see me today or similar.
