p.s is Lee back yet .x.
I am looking forward to reading more of your TR - please tell me you aren't going to do a Craig on us & keep us waiting for one a month.

Lee is not back yet. They boarded the plane yesterday & they were just about to take off when a warning light came on, a part (can't remember what he said) needed replacing so they had to get off & wait in the airport. Monarch didn't have a spare so had to fly the part over from Luton (5 hour flight). At 4am this morning they finally got put in to a hotel, I have just had a text from him to say they are sat on the plane again awaiting take off - so fingers crossed it will be ok this time. ( I am waiting to see it update on the website & will go to the airport to pick him up tonight) They are so tired as they got hardly any sleep, talk about ruin the buzz of your holiday.

Look at that, even when I'm away I get abuse!!!

Love your ADRs Claire - Pretty much exactly what I will be booking for next year

Sounds like you had a mare sorting them out though! Hope the next round is a little easier!

Hope Lee is home safe and sound now

They do take a while to write & uploading all the photos takes ages too. I look forward to reading day 2.

Lee is home now. He landed at 7pm last night & was shattered as he had only had 3 hours sleep.

Hmmm funny you should say that ~ he always gets a golf ball with the name of the course on it when he plays somewhere overseas....but knows better than to give it to me (he knows where i'd put it! )

I got 3 lovely new charms for my Pandora bracelet.

Wow, your trip sounds amazing! I'll be reading along with special interest on your cruise since we will be cruising for the first time in December. Your TR should be amazing. Sounds like you did get a great deal.

It's fun giving you abuse about your TR.....you can take it.

I can't book my other adr's until next friday, due to the cruise & change of resort so it's 90 days from the date of check in at the Poly.

I thought I would give an update on my adr's for the last part of our stay.

24th Sept - we have a 1pm ressie at T-Rex! YUM! I can't wait to eat here again as I really enjoyed it last December.

25th Sept - We will be having brekkie in Kona Cafe - I am desperate to try Tonga Toast! Tonight is our second round of MNSSHP & I have made an adr for The Plaza.

26th Sept - I am pleased to have secured a table for California Grill this evening! I did want it for the 27th (our last night) but oh well, I am just pleased to have got it at all.

27th Sept - Today is breakfast with Lilo & Stitch at Ohana, then in the evening Coral Reef (I did want Le Cellier but couldn't get it but we have it in the first week so not that worried).

28th Sept - Our last morning I have got a lunch ressie at Kona Cafe as we will be getting the Magical Express bus back to the airport from the Poly. However I may cancel that if we decide to spend longer in MK & eat at the airport instead.


I think that's all of them now - unless I can get a dinner slot at Ohana but it seems unlikely at the moment.

The only other updates are that I have started to buy a few fish Extender gifts but we only have a few taking part so far, 8 adults & 3 kids (excluding us). I have also ordered some magnetic sheets as I want to make some magnets for our cabin door.

I have been topping up my fairfx card when the rate has been over 1.62, I also forgot that we didn't use hubby's fairfx card in December & that was loaded with $1000 at $2 for £1!!!! Just need to get a bit of cash & were sorted.

I have also renewed our passports (don't know where those 10 years have gone! ), filled in our ESTA, Virgin API info & DCL online check in & pre paid for our photopass.

Not much else left to do really apart from wait!

Just over 7 weeks to go now!!!!
