Mummy, Daddy, Nanny, Anna and Poppy go to WDW!


Just thought I'd say Hi before we have the off, just a little bit of background for now, then I'll follow up with the trip report upon our return.

Cast:
Me (35) the planner, organiser and DW to
DH (39) Thrill ride lover
DD4 Ariel lover
DD19mo Piglet and Lella (Cinderella) lover
My Mum (57)
My Mum and DD's haven't been to WDW before, eldest DD has been to DLRP.

We leave on the VS027 from LGW hopefully at 1045, but we're going to online checkin and bag drop tomorrow as we're not far from Gatwick.

We are staying south i-drive at the Sheraton Vistana Villages. Not stayed there before.

All reports conclude that weather is mighty fine for the near future

Sunday it's hit the ground running with the Akershus Princess Lunch at Epcot, DH and I aren't the biggest fans of Epcot so we'll take it easy on the first day.

We have plenty of rest days planned and aren't going commando stylee, it'll still be there next year, right?
Other adr's we have are Crystal Palace for lunch, Rainforest Cafe at AK for lunch, Sci-fi dine-in, Bibbidi Bobbidi for DD4 and Fantasmic dinner at Mama Melroses. Pretty standard stuff!
We will try and book some adr's when we get there, we're pretty flexible people and didn't want to over plan the trip.

Tonight is pamper night - you know what I mean, girls!

"Speak" to you all in three weeks.

Don't work too hard!

Trip report teaser.....

We arrived home Sunday, we survived, we had tears (most of joy), tantrums, tiredness and Tonsilitis! Yes, we paid a visit to Orlando's Centra care.

Trip highlights were - The weather, Our accom & the pool! , Princess storybook lunch, Crystal Palace Pooh and Friends Lunch, Sci-fi, Turtle talk with crush, Beauty and The beast, Playhouse Disney, Fantasmic!, *** Philharmagic *** we all loved. Typhoon Lagoon, Kali RR, Tower of Terror, Bibbidi Bobbidi, Ariel's grotto, Small world (little 'un loved it) Wishes, and Photopass!

Trip low lights - Tonsilitis for my DD4, Bubba Gumps, Brush fires & air quality, delay coming home, coming home.

I took 1100 photos and video, when I've sorted it all out, I'll do a proper trip report.
Until then
