T&T and Two First Timers Pre trip report

You will probably know me and Theresa by now but the two first timers will need an introduction.
My dear mum, Peggy and my aunt Zena are coming along this trip and we have plans to do just about everything there is to do all in the one trip.
They keep going on about needing to pack the Tena Lady for the scary coasters.
I can see Iím going to have my hands full with three women to keep under control this trip. I think Iíd better PM Kev and see if he has any tips on keeping them in check.
We are travelling with TCD and they have moved the goal posts on us a couple of times this trip; firstly they changed the plane so we couldnít go Sunshine Upper Deck which we were really looking forward to and then they introduced a refuelling stop at Gander which rubbed salt into the wound.
The plans are made and include 7 parks, 2 waters Parks, Discovery Cove, a day on the beach, horse riding, an airboat ride and, last but not least, shopping.
We have ADRís for Artist Point, Le Cellier, & 50ís Prime Time to name just a few.
Weíre staying at our time share on The Sheraton Vistana Resort and we love it there; we are so looking forward to going back.
We fly on the 3rd of May from Gatwick so I hope there isnít too much Bank Holiday traffic on the M25 at 7.00a.m.
I canít think of anything else to add at the moment, I'm sure there will be plenty to say when we get back.

No, Tony, you have that wrong. Kevin doesn't keep the women he travels with (family or extended family) "in check." He treats the women he travels with like queens, as should you! I've been there when Kevin was surrounded by a 7 woman entourage, moving from ride to ride, park to park--an amazing sight. You probably shouldn't try this just yet. Start off as you are, with 3 women and work your way up to Kevin status. Too bad you aren't going a month later--I might have given you the opportunity to deal with 4 women!

Sounds like a fun trip. You and Theresa will have as much fun showing the first timers the sights as they'll have seeing them. Best to everyone.

I've always found a large whip to be handy Tony. Failing that, threaten to remove their shopping privileges.

I knew this was here! Anyone who says I didn't is a big fibber!

Sounds as though you have an action-packed trip in store, Tone. I hope you manage to squeeze Tim McGraw in there somewhere.
