I know they can't just one family all the seats but this caused me a lot of stress and worry leading up to our last holiday. The say DH across the aisle from me not a bulkhead and I had a bulk head seat. The next 3 seats next to me were empty. Of course DH moves next to me after but can you imagine if there were a lot o infants in the flight having four separate mums (or dads) with an infant each on their lap.

I do PRE book our seats like you but were offered the bulkhead and took them.

Hope your flight is quiet so you could all sit together with bulkhead seats. But you have plenty of you to keep little Charlie happy and plenty of laps for him to sit on.

It is a nightmare. We were lucky the first time we took Megan as they said having me and DH together in the bulkhead seat wouldnt be a problem - we were even given our seat numbers. This was a few years ago (2010) and before all the aircraft changes and when you could book seats 300 odd days out. I didnt realise it had all changed as each trip after that we bought Megan a seat.

We cant check in online as we have a lap infant but we plan on getting to Twilight check in as soon as it opens at 5pm so crossing lots of fingers

Woooohoooo! 9 more sleeps until we head for Gatwick!

Done my online Check in for AKV and SSR.

Now just the small matter of packing, we have just purchased an owners locker so we can leave some bits for the kids out there (and a wine glass for me!)

Packing for myself, husband, 3 year old and 10 month old. Guaranteed it will be DH that causes most problems

Someone remind me to never fly on Friday 13th again - it must be bad luck!

First Charlie was poorly. Ended up on a nebuliser and steroids. He has a set of steroids, an inhaler and course of antibiotics in hand luggage 'just incase'.

Next my mum woke up Monday morning feeling really unwell - sinus infection and on antibiotics.

Finally yesterday morning my dad was in a car accident. He got hit by a lorry on the motorway, car spun around and got stuck on the front of the lorry and was carried 100yards before getting wedged between lorry and crash barrier. He was amazingly lucky and walked away unhurt. Foreign lorry driver who didnt speak English and a potentially written off car 2 days before the holiday. Luckily a British lorry driver saw it all so he has a witness so will all get sorted.

Fair to say we need this holiday now!

Thanks all, it was definitely a nightmare week but of course the holiday more rhan made up for it

I'll hopefully start my report in a few days but to start off here are a few highs and lows -

Highs:

Virgins PE - lush lush lush! Wish i could afford to fly this way every time.

AKV - first stay at rhis resort and we were only there for 2 nights but i loved it.

Disney Cruise - once again it didnt disappoint. An amazing 4 days.

Charlie and Megan - Charlies first visit and Megans 4th but both kids had a great time and seeing them so excited all the time made my holiday perfect.

Lows:

Flight out - despite the luxury of PE the flight was a nightmare. DH got food poisoning and was really ill all flight. Luckily my parents were there to help otherwise i dont know what i would have done.

Flight home - Virgin split us up and sat my 3yo on her own. Had to spend ages tryig to sort something out. Virgins suggestion was i sit on my own with both kids for the flight whilst he sits a few rows away.Nightmare!

Saratoga Springs - My last trip here i loved it. But this time not so much. My first experience of a rude cast member, and issues with housekeeping (or lack of). And the first time ive complained about a Disney resort.

Oh no sounds like you had a nightmare with Virgin Laura

I've been wondering how your holiday went.

Look forward to hearing more about it

Our cousin had the same problem with VA seating their two year old separately and then expecting parents to sit separately thus leaving one poor parent to deal with the stress alone. They need to seriously rethink the way they arrange seats for families with littlies!!Looking forward to hearing all about the trip though
