3 holidays in 1 Part One** NewYork**

*****Pre trip Oct 2008*****



Part 2 Pop Centry and the Disney Wonder

I am going to try my first trip report
CAST 22nd Oct - 25th Oct 2006

Me
DH
DS 15
DS 8
New York
DS 19
DB

Leave my mother in charge of a house full of B&B'ers and leave at 5am whispering as not to wake any of them up,
3 hours later we are checking in at Belfast done it all the night before on the net so no waiting about great
DS8 still thinks that we are just going to WDW at this stage , little does he know , whats ahead of him
DS 8 has the whole plane excited about seeing NY from the window ( He has always wanted to go to NY and knows all about the place )
My DB is there to meet us and we all jump in to his car and away we go
DS 8 is not saying too much at this stage , we were not meant to be leaving the airport at all , only meeting my DB for dinner at the airport , DS 19 is not even mean to be with us either, he got on the wrong plane
On the way in to NY we tell DS 8 that we are staying for 3 days , he is not pleased that everyone was in on the secert only him but delighted
so part 1 of our holiday has started
we stayed in the Radiocity apartments just off time square ,great location they were basic ,but clean and warm ,
It was great to see my DB and he had all our evenings planned for us
we went on the World yatch Dinner Cruise up the Hauston , which was just wonderfull and a great way to see the city skyline
My DS 15 loves his food so my DB took us to Gallaghers Stask house just off times square another night ,best meal of the whole trip
We done all the sites and had a great time
we used the bus tours to get about during the day , and learth lots DS 8 took it all in and was able to tell my DB about different things he heard








all too so it was time to leave and head on the 2nd part of our trip
sad to say goodbye to my DB and DS 19 had to head back to work , he is at the stage he has out grown Disney ,

Part 2 Pop Centry and the Disney Wonder

I especially love to hear stories of vacation surprises and sounds like you really pulled this one off. How fortunate to have a local guide in your brother. I'm sure you got the most out of your days in NYC that way. Thanks for taking the time to tell us about the fun you had.
