Your favorite picture makes me really excited for our trip. Where was that again? I can't wait to try to capture that same picture during my trip.

I hope your pain goes away soon and you can continue to build wonderful memories with your beautiful daughters. You will blink your eyes and they will be grown.

Again thank you VERY much for sharing all of your trip. It sure helps me with my planning!!

Thank you so much for your well wishes! I had my consultation yesterday and the surgeon said that recovery from the mesh removal would be 2 months of bed rest. I'm trying to figure out whether I can do that as a practical matter with my kids, and honestly whether I'm emotionally up to it again.

The surgeon is in Florida, an hour from WDW. The DIS mom in me thought, oh well maybe a combo WDW trip and surgery. Ok really, only half kidding.

Can you imagine that trip report?

I'll update this post if we decide to really do it. WDW + Mesh Removal Surgery.

The picture was from a hilltop in Portofino. Feel free to let me know if you have any planning questions. I saw your questions in your main thread on the forums, and I had suggested perhaps doing Rome separately (as a non DCL excursion). Let me know if you need any help!!

Ooh, I think that is a fantastic idea! Will your insurance pay for that?

What site did you use to get your tickets for the Underground Tour for the Colosseum?

I have 3 things I want to do and my DH is just coming along. I really want to do this on our own, but he is really hesitant. 1) Underground Tour, 2) Vatican tour(s), and 3) Trevi Fountain. I see that you used Walks of Italy for transfering as well as the in person tour for the Vatican. I think that is the way I am leaning.

On a more serious note, I hope it all goes well, whatever your decision

I see that you used Walks of Italy for transfering as well as the in person tour for the Vatican. I think that is the way I am leaning.
The Colosseum uses this website for its Underground Tour and online ticket sales. They add a surcharge but its well worth it to skip the insanely long lines when you get there:

http://www.ticketclic.it/database/B2c/Order01.cfm?LN=1

Choose your date, then choose the tour that says in English "Underground Tour", which means that the tour is conducted in English.

If you choose the 12pm tour like us, you will have to cut it short by leaving at around 1pm to cab to the Vatican. Walks of Italy's Vatican Highlights tour meets at 1:45pm near the Vatican. The tour ends around 4:30pm, we left St Peters at 4:45pm, back on the ship before 6pm.

If you book roundtrip transfers with them, the company will help you coordinate with the guide after the tour to return you to the ship. Our guide actually walked us over from St. Peter's to the minivan. It was great.

Email them for more info. I worked with Linda from Walks of Italy. She's the one that coordinated the day for us. I'm sure if you ask Linda to copy my itinerary and that you're on the Disney Ship she'll know exactly what to do. I'll PM you my name.

Thanks for the well wishes. Hopefully I'll be all better by the EBTA. If we're both on the ship, let's have a drink

You're on. (But my drink will have to be as I don't drink alcohol.)

A great trip report. I am so glad that you enjoyed London. Our train into town goes into Charring Cross and my children love to see Big Ben.

Can I just ask whether Tea with Alice was offerred on your cruise.


Many thanks


Lisa
