Just back - Highs and lows

We landed back in gloomy Newcastle yesterday morning around 5.20am to the freezing cold and rain

We didn't want to come home after such an amazing holiday. Just a few highs and lows before I start my trip report.

Highs

Those who are my friend on Facebook will know that DBF proposed to me It was in front of Cinderella's Castle in MK and was the perfect end to a perfect day after the Wishes Dessert Party

Epcot Food and Wine festival was amazing although it rained both times we were there. The rain thinned the crowds out though

The parks weren't busy, mostly 10 minute waits or walk on's, although I did overhear a man saying that this is the busiest it's been this time of the year

MNSSHP - fab parade (despite a man dressed as Pongo pushing his way in front of me at the last minute) and the fireworks were great too. We'll definately do this again

Wishes Dessert Party, fantastic! Even though I didn't eat a lot of the desserts, the view and not having to get a place on Main Street amongst the crowds made it worth the money

Our room at POR was lovely, we had a corner room in Acadian House. The pool nearby was never busy when we were there. We usually went between 2pm and 4pm or around 7pm depending on what we had been doing during the day

Mears Transfer bus to Universal Studios, on time and a lovely driver

Boat to DTD was very convenient and a nice change to getting buses everywhere

Lows

The buses at POR became quite annoying. If we did stay at POR again we would rent a car but I don't think we'll be staying there again, it is a lovely resort however we want to try somewhere different next time

The queue at immigration on arriving at Sanford Airport was very long, however once we did get through our suitcases were waiting for us and our transfer was ready and waiting

I can't think of any more lows, it was the best holiday ever. I need to get started on my trip report!

Now I just have to try and get DBF to agree to a WDW wedding!!!
