So far we've done EPCOT (briefly), Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studio's.
EPCOT, it was quite dark when we got to walk around and the fireworks were on so we took advantage and hit Soarin'
Magic Kingdom WOW words can not describe how unprepared we were for it, different to Disneyland, I don't have a favourite though (does that make me a Disney tragic?).
Today we hit Hollywood Studio's, started badly
Got there about 10:30, my DH now understands that you need to get there early after DS missed out on JEDI training academy, then we hit Star Tours, so hot in there and DS came out and proceeded to vomit (no magic there), then DH felt off and my tummy was a little queasy.
I actually asked them if they wanted to leave, but they both said no.
We then headed for lunch at Hollywood and Vine for the character lunch with Handy Manny and Jake the Neverland Pirate.
I really dislike their system of the customer making an ADR, giving a credit card to hold the "reservation" turning up on time then waiting behind the masses, why bother with a reservation system when the customers are being made to wait 45 minutes past their "reservation" time
DH also has been suffering gout since the cruise
And left his medication at home (no rocket scientist here )
So tonight we headed off to a Dr for an appointment, $89 then medication (which he has at home) $130 for that
Unbelievable...

Bugger about the vomiting and the gout. Yay for $130 quick fix and being able to get back on track.

Glad you are mostly having a blast. I'm so glad you loved Magic Kingdom. It really is like picking a favourite child when trying to pick a favourite

When we first got into Magic Kingdom we stood just inside the park and took it in for about 10 minutes.
I love the Halloween overlay! Everything looks amazing!

We got so much done yesterday, splash mountain 3 times, space mountain, BTMRR...we did do more but it now escapes me
MNSSHP tomorrow night!

Can you see why the DL veteran that I am is now a WDW convert?! It's Disney on steroids isn't it?!!

Hey, with MNSSHP, I suggest you take a back pack in with you. Accept the little trick or treat bags they give you and, when they fill up, find a discrete spot and empty them into your back pack. Then continue trick or treating with empty bags. Repeat the process as necessary and you end up with a big loot of candy that will last for weeks!

Animal Kingdom today!

So, it's 7:37am and I'm sitting here with my phone working on a budget to make a trip next year a reality
I have become a tragic.

Crunching the numbers if we knuckle down again it is totally doable

DH will skip the parks most of the time, he wants to golf instead, but I am obsessed and DS is along for the ride

We want to cruise again, stay at Hilton Bonnet Creek (unless they do a free dining plan again) then I say Disneyland on the way home...but that's just me

Good move to sew the seeds now. Glad you are having a great time ( despite the slight hitch)!

Glad to hear you ate having such a good time! My sympathies re DH leaving his medicate at home. My DH did the same thing last year with his arthritis meds and suffered badly just at the end of the trip.

Glad you're having a great time Bec. Looking forward to the detailed TR when you return.

And the new PTR....complete with DH packing his medication before you leave.
