Soarin' from Scotland to Mickey - our June 09 adventure! *updated 12/20 - the end!

For anyone who has follow my pretrippie - Hi!

Anyone new -

A catch up on who we all are!!!!

Me, Laura 33 who has just given up her job as a rep for a Drugs company to start a course at Uni to become a Primary School Teacher. Complete Disney-aholic since early childhood. I have been visiting WDW since I was a child and have had a short visit to DL aswell. There is something about a holiday in Disney which nothing compares to. Magic Kingdom is my heaven!

DH, 34 – converted Disney lover! Loves the thrill rides and gets a real kick out of seeing our girls enjoy their time there. Loves Goofy and is also quite fond of Ariel but I think that it is more to do with her bikini top than her movie!!!

DD7 (E) – my eldest princess. Growing old too fast but already a Disney addict. This will be her 4th trip to WDW and she loves it there. Last time became a pin trading fan and this year has plans to search out Hidden Mickeys! Santa brought her some assorted pins to trade so she is excited about that. She is a typical 7 year old. Loves HSM, Hannah and Wizards, make up, music, riding her bike and has a passion for reading and drawing. She has huge personality and a great sense of humour but is also very sensitive and soft centred. A wee love.

DD3 (K) – my littlest pincess. This will be my baby’s 2nd visit to WDW and is already planning to ride the Carousel and It’s a Small World continuously for 2 weeks! She is a complete character who even at 3 has the 3 of us rolling with laughter round the dinner table. Different from her sister though she is shy and not confident with people she doesn’t know and holds back from doing new things. Is Princess mad and loves dressing up as “cinderelly”, wearing her dress up princess shoes and generally being very girly. She is very loving and gives great cuddles.

Granny – 59 (not allowed to mention the number 60 in her company!). My Mum is my bestest pal and also loves Disney. She is the person who is responsible for taking me there as a child and instilling a love of stories, make believe and wishes in me that I am very thankful for. She loves her Grand daughters and she cannot imagine missing out on sharing a Disney trip with them. They have a very close relationship and love their Granny to bits. She is a very fit and young 59 year old and is the one often in the lead as we tour the parks!

Grandad - 58. Big softie, supplier of endless amounts of gummi bears from an almost magical pocket. Main partner in crime for my girls cheeky antics and can play imaginary games with them both for hours. They also adore their Grandad. Not so much into the Magic!!!

We all live in Central Scotland so trips to WDW are a serious trek for us. We are flying to Gatwick London on the 23rd of June staying overnight then flying BA to Orlando on the 24th. We then have 15 days in WDW before we fly home on the evening of the 9th July arriving in London in the morning of the 10th then straight back up to Edinburgh.

So our dates for our trip are really the 24th June to the 9th July.

We have booked to stay offsite at Windsor Hills resort in a 3 bedroom townhouse. We did consider for this trip staying onsite as we have not done that before but the cost difference was so much as we are staying for 15 days. The house looks lovely so I am really looking forward to it. We have a little splash pool at the back and there is a huge swimming pool onsite to enjoy. It will take us about 10 mins to get to the MK car park so its nice and close.

So thats the team this year! Overall we had a great holiday and I am getting withdrawal symptoms already! If someone offered me a plane seat for tomorrow I would certainly take it! So any offers will be considered!
