Pop looks fab!! I know loads of people who book it because they are on a budget, but have come home and swear they will never stay anywhere else. Do you think you will decorate your room window??

Haha thank you we love making our plans. But I'm sure there will be lots of changes to be made nearer the time. September will be here before you know it!! You'll have to make your TR as soon as you come back so we can read it before we go haha

Pop does look like there is alot of fun to be had :P Ians never stayed on site before so we're both super excited for even seeing our room normal and hoping to come back to little surprises :P

My DBF and I have also never stayed on site - I'm so excited!

17th October, we're touring the Food and Wine Festival I think for the evening, if you fancy drinking around the world with us (Ah, the joys of staying onsite!)

Hi there

Like you, I've been saving like crazy to afford my trip, flights villa tickets etc all add up, I've even been selling old mobile phones and stuff to afford it

I'm so jealous that you're going in October I'd live to be there for Haloween!

Can't wait to read more

Hi That itenerary sounds perfect. AK is worth the two days, just to get the rides done is half a day, the animals can take up hours too if you like watching them (I do )

Take careful note of the seaworld shows though, I'd advise Clyde and Seymour (Very funny) and horizons be on the list to do, you'll need to schedule carefully to get more done in a day though.

Hope you have a fab trip, and don't go stir crazy waiting.

Good idea selling old phones, I never thought of that!! We still have a fair bit to go for paying it all off.

I'm jealous that you are going to soon! I can't wait till October :P but I guess I'll have to!

Thank you Really looking forward to Animal Kingdom as we are both HUGE animal lovers. So we can't wait for it.

I think we just wrote down what we wanted to see for Seaworld as we could find times for the shows

Thank you! Going crazy already with excitement!



Today I will be phoning to book our last nights meal as we couldn't do it before, so it's my turn to phone the US California Grill time!!

I'll try selling anything to get to the world

I'm hoping to get some more paid off tomorrow and then I'll only have one payment left

I suppose however long the wait is it'll be worth it when we get there

Mickey's Chocolate Mints

I also have a must buy Mickey treat. A box of Mickey's chocolate mints! They are a must. They are in a green box with a dollar bill on the front with Mickey as the president of the United States.

October is one of my favourite months to go to WDW. The weather is great and it's not crowded! Have a great time!

Oh no, I knew I shouldn't have looked at PTR's! I've managed to steer clear of looking at snacks, but you've made me re-think this! I'm gonna have to just copy and paste your list Haha!

Long time!

I'm SO sorry its been a long time since I have last been on here. I haven't had much time to sit down for the past few months. Been working, going to the gym getting hair cuts and colours with occasionally sleeping :P

GUESS WHAT?!!?!

TOMORROW is the BIG day!!

I can't believe this day is FINALLY here!

Tonight after a day at work we will drive down to Ian's parents and tomorrow morning we will board our plane from Manchester Airport!!!

SO excited, yet so nervous for the flight (longest flight ever for me).

Thank you all for your help that you have given me and I will be sure to share our trip when we are back home.


Vicky and Ian
