Edinburgh to Orlando - our holiday was "awesome!!" (did I say it right??)!!! (+pics)
Well I started with a pretrip report and couldn't figure out how to move it to the trip report board so I have started again!!!! (sorry - quite new to the boards!).
First of all a wee catch up on who we all are:
I am 32 and live in Stirlingshire in Scotland. I have been a Disney fanatic since birth I think and always loved the sense of make believe and wonder which the films and stories give you. I have been to WDW many times and DL once (and DLRP once on a conference and it is officially the worst place. Does not even start to compare with WDW and I will never be back.)
DH is 33 and was not a Disney fan until I made him go just after we got married and now he loves it. i don't think he totally "gets" it but he loves going on holiday (vacation!) here.
DD Emma is 6 and loves all things Disney. This will be her 3rd trip to WDW and she is exceptionally excited about this upcoming trip. I'll call her DE!
DD Katieis just truned 2 and does not yet know what a holiday is!!!! Even so she is very excited about her "oidays" and loves everything about Aurora. I'll call her DK!
Mum and Dad are also having 2 weeks at WDW - they are leaving 4 days before us so we will have about 10 days with them. Mum is as Disney daft as me and is always the one wiping tears away during the opening ceremony (I hide mine behind sunglasses!). Dad is going to spend time with the girls - he is not too bothered about Disney at all. But it is rule of the trip - you must be excited so he is doing his best! I'll call them Granny and Grandad in the report!
Both Mum and Dad dote on my girls so we are going to have a lot of fun experiencing it all together.
We have bought a 21 day ticket for WDW which gives us unlimited access for 21 days to all parks and water parks for DH and DD6. DD2 does not need a ticket and I have bought an annual pass to save money on the car parking and to get the discounts at the World of Disney store. This is a good saving for us.
We also have tickets for SeaWorld and a one day 2 park pass for Universal.
So it is going to be a busy 18 days and we plan to fill them up.
Our travel day.........................
