The 2nd time round I didn't think we'd make it! Stopped at Dover South services to fill up before boarding the ferry. Paid and returned to Luna (the Mini) only for her not to start! No matter how hard I tried I couldn't get her going (I'm pretty mechanically minded!) We called the AA and the poor guy got it going and then it wouldn't start again, this went on and on. He did eventually sort us out though. We missed the ferry by an hour and a half, but they sorted us out no worries.
We spent the whole ferry journey hoping she would start and we cried when she did! That wasn't the end of it though as we hit torrential rain, flooded roads, crashed lorries! It was crazy, we aquaplaned several times, I've never been so scared! It took us about 6 hours to get to Disney from the ferry port!

It was all worth it though!

You must have been pretty keen to get there! Hope you make it to Disney World soon.

I'm Trude, I'm from Norway, but I live in the UK with my DFI. I've been to WDW several times, both on vacation and as an International CM. I'm hooked, and I've managed to get my DFI hooked as well Right now we're planning our wedding in Norway for June 2014 and Disneymoon for November 2014. So we're saving like crazy so we can afford it
