Aw thankyou
I do love Harry Potter, but we're not hiring a car and I'm a little uneasy using public transport in Bristol, let alone in Florida! I know we're going back in December 2013 (my Grandad is a crazy and amazing man, taking 12 of us for Christmas! ), so I know I'll be able to go back again. But I may have saved enough money to buy one-day tickets! So watch this space!

I am soooo glad you like them!! I watched Phil, Emma and Ben first, and then found Steph and Jeff (I love Youtube! ) It was nice to see a family and then a young couple doing the same, and yet different videos. Steph and Jeff are sometimes so similar to Tom and I!

Update :)

Well, after seeing on the boards that the Photopass prices are being hiked up, I sat down on Facebook and made Tom look through some of my friends pictures, with the borders and the magic touches (ie, Stitch, Tinkerbell, balloons etc...)

He eventually said "It's upto you," which I hate, because if it goes wrong, it's all my fault... but I did it and ordered it

I'm just hoping we use it now!

We've been looking at peoples holiday videos on Youtube, and Tom's decided he wants to buy/ borrow a camcorder and make our own video! Very excited at this prospect!

If anyone gets a chance, search 'Phil, Emma and Bens Disney Videos' and 'Steph n Jeff videos'

I'm planing a trip to on Sept/OCtober, me and my boyfriend are about the same age as you guys are!
I love Phil Emma and Ben videos they are so clever, I'll check out Steph and Jeff.
If you want to go to US and IoA I know there's Mears transportation, it offers a shuttle service from the Disney Resorts to Sea World and Universal Studios. If you go to their website you'll be able to book seats whenever you have your park tickets, that's what we'll be doing.

Aw cool, it will be good to compare plans and tips!

I'll definately look into Mears, although US and IoA are still a question mark at the moment!

Depends on whether we can save enough pennies!

Hello! Have enjoyed reading your pre-trip report. Looks like we'll be at WDW almost the same time as boyfriend and I are going 6-13th Oct for my birthday! I wish they'd release the park hours soon so I can decide where to go

I did Keys to the Kingdom a couple of years ago and it was really good!! It took about 5 hours but we got to spend a long time learning about the details of Main Street and went on Haunted Mansion and Jungle Cruise. A tip is to get the first tour of the day becuase it usually means you can get into Magic Kingdom early and take photos of empty Main Street and castle

We're also toying with photopass. Last year I got a card with the intention of buying one or two picture but to be honest I didn't really like them. Instead I asked the photopass man to take photos with my camera (which is a DSLR so similar quality to the ones they use).

Aw thankyou Lucy I know what you mean about park hours - although I'm more concerned about food

Still weighing up the tour and the possibility of US/ IoA *and* MNSSHP!! Especially as we can only really afford to do one!

With regards to Photopass, I paid $99.95, so I'd only need to "buy" 5 park photos to make it worth it, so I'm determined to ask them to take loads of pictures and try and get lots of magic ones too!

Looking forward to hearing your plans! xx

Pick-A-Pearl

Uh-oh... just spent far too much time searching the boards for tips and hints on character experiences and Kidcots (see my post on trip planning board if you can help!) and stumbled across the Pick-A-Pearl experience.

Now I need to try and convince DBF that this is also a must-do! It looks amazing! Anyone done this and got any tips or pictures?

Yay! Park hours have finally been released for the beginning of October! So tonight, I shall spend my evening planning parks and our restaurants... We are going commando and planning everything, because we're there for the food! If it wasn't for free dining, we wouldn't be going - so we're making the most of ADRs!

I've only just discovered this section of the board and I'm so glad i did, I've loved reading through your thread!

I can't wait to see what your meal plans are because food is a big part of our trips too

I think I want to write a pre-trip report now as well!
