The 'Dont know who is coming on this trip' Report
Well as the title says we are a bit unsure who is actually going on this trip
We booked several months ago to go to Newport Bay from 31st July until 5th Aug
We being the usual:
DD - Charys - 9
Although we have dream APs it was cheaper to book it as a package because of the 40% off
which meant we would end up with 3 passes we didnt need.
As time went by I started to get annoyed about this - DLP didnt seem to care about their AP holders anymore - they had changed the sponsorship system giving us virtually no chance to renew our passes for free so decided we might as well try and use the spare passes we had.
Enter 2 new additions to the trip
DS - Joel - 23 (came with us last Easter)
Joels girlfriend Steph (been once before soon after the park first opened)
Steph is an MSC student and Joel has been doing voluntary work tis year after graduating last June so we thought why not treat them to the passes.
We decided if we drove and went by Eurotunnel it wouldnt cost anything to get there, they could have our passes and we would feed them so all they needed to do was find cheap accomodation in the area. We pointed them in the right direction of the Premier Classe hotel in Bussy St George, spent an evening discussing the trip - Steph was getting really excited about it and was planning that we all buy different ears and rotate them every day and wanted to do every thing and be there for the crack of dawn much to Joels disgust.
We left for a 2 week holiday in France and while we were there got an Email from Joel saying they had booked the hotel so it seemed as though they would be joining us.
However while we were in France they left for Africa to do some MSC research and Emailed us last week to say Steph might not be able to come as she is so bogged down with trying to get her project finished.
We Emailed Joel to see if he was still coming even if she didnt and he said he might but would share our room - after his last trip with us he said he'd never do that again as someone () was snoring. However he says he now has ear plugs so it will be OK.
We phoned Disney to see how much it would cost to add him to our room as an extra adult with no park ticket and were told its much cheaper (£90) to add him as part of the package. So we will still have the tickets we dont need.
So as things stand we still dont know if he is definitely coming with us or if Steph will decide she can come after all so we cant add him to the room.
They are not home from Africa until 24th and we go on 31st.
We will also either need to stay in Ashford the night before or in Cambridge where Joel lives as if hes coming we need to go via there to collect him.
We cant book meal vouchers either as we dont know how many for so the whole trip is a bit of an uncertainty at the moment
