Hi, just thought I would answer your question. Yes - Virgin will price match. We benefited from this for our booking next August.

I have really enjoyed reading your trip report. It was very good of you to take time out each day to post. Thanks for all the details. Hope you get over your jet lag soon....

You simply find the price that you want them to match eg website or brochure and give them the details. As long as they can find it they will match it (some have to go through a review first so it may take 24 hours for them to confirm back to you that they will match it). We had a new invoice emailed out to us next day.

Cinderella - it's a small world!! You must go to the Cheesecake Factory it's fab! Have an amazing trip!

Disney - we have tried to get Virgin to match our Thomas Cook quote but apparently you have to match with Virgin flights? Not sure how else you can achieve this....might have to consider Thomas Cook for £800 less....

Thanks to everyone for their kind welcome home. Managed to survive first week back in work - just..... Really need to book next years to cheer me up

We stayed until lunchtime and then went out of the park to the Olive Garden to fill up before the plane.

All uneventful - security fine, plane boarded on time. Girls fell asleep straight after food which was good, both DH and I struggled this year - I had a noisy person in front of me who kept ordering duty free and so on which made it hard to fall asleep but never mind. Landed and met the meet and greet Maple Parking who were prompt as usual. Started on our journey home - got home around 1ish which wasn't too bad.

Weirdly we are struggling with jet lag at the moment - waking up in the middle of the night, struggling to stay awake in the middle of the day....the joys of coming home......

Already pricing up next year

Yes i believe they do, but it must be on an identical package holiday. Sounds like a great trip. Thanks for the TR.
