Thanks dabecs! It took some time putting it all together but we're very excited about it!

We have almost decided on a trip to the UK (to see friends and rellies) late next year with a side trip to DLP and around 2 weeks in southern Spain and Barcelona so will be following TR with even more care-noting what to do and not to do and where to eat at DLP. At this stage in my reading I share reservations about the negatives (also the comments on the amount of breakdowns, dilapidated nature of attractions inside, animatronics not working etc) but also looking forward to exploring all the walk-throughs and detail as seems lots of differences in this regard and the castle looks stunning - to actually stay at DH -in my dreams! I am trying to decide which hotel sounds the best as lots of negative press on the Paris Boards on many and the close, off site ones seem to get better reviews...but on-site is so much better! The cruise sounds amazing too and such a treat for the children to travel with both sets of grandparents. Did I say I was jealous (and I know, I am lucky I am still planning another amazing OS trip for ourselves for next year but there is always so many more destinations I would love to see!)
No need to be jealous! Spain and the UK will be awesome. We loved Barcelona and have been yearning to go back to see the rest of the country. I am following Ms Shuttergirls trip planning to the UK very closely and will be doing the same with yours. My MIL is from England and she has been pestering us to go back with her for years. We thought about doing it this year but had difficulty squeezing it in. Its high on our wishlist. And I still clearly remember when I was reading your TR how I WISHED I was back in NY! I think that's half the problem being on these boards, there's always someone going somewhere special! It makes it even harder when you personally don't have a trip in the near future. As hard as most of us try not to, its difficult to avoid "trip envy"! And yes I do agree with the part about so many destinations to see...sigh

I have no time to be thinking about my Italy Spain Greece Turkey trip of 2014 but I just can't keep looking to the future .

It will be great that you are blazing a trail for us all Shushh and Wendy, you can blaze the Spain trail for me late next year. Nice.
Hehehe, it sounds like me planning my Dec 2013 USA roadtrip with this current trip not fully organised yet...

Yeah, cruises always suck me in without fail! So MANY cruises I want to go on!!!!

My husband loves all the new york teams so if possible wants to see his sporting events here so we've bought NY Knicks tickets for December 23, about to buy NY Rangers tickets for December 22, unfortunately or fortunately, I can't decide, we miss the Grin Iron season.

We have tickets to see Grinch on December 24 and tickets to see the Christmas spectacular on December 25. And I still would like to see a broadway show. Ouch. We might be on bread and water for the remainder of the trip hahaha.

And god help me if a singer or band my husband likes gets announced for while we are in the US, he won't be able to resist.

Good to get these things booked and we aren't planning on doing anything like this in any of the other cities at this time, but hey, never say never.
That's a full on schedule! Good for you, I expected nothing less! It sounds like a lot of fun. If you're not going to treat yourself while in NY at Christmas then when are you going to do it
