Ev-Uns productions present October 2009 and much Windsor Hills lovleyness.

Time for a pre trippie me thinks now I have pretty much everything in order.

Cast Members:

Rob (myself) 38 Chief Planner and all round Orlando geek (according to everyone we know)

Sarah-DW-37 Worlds best money manager to get us here this time

Beth –DD-10 Turning into a clothes horse

Victoria-DD-8 Still young at heart and possesses great wittyness

Pauline-70-Mum. World’s foremost authority on everything

Billy-68-Dad Will finally admit he is on holiday when he buckles his seatbelt on the aircraft

Les-43 Sister Can’t wait to sit in the Jacuzzi with a beer never mind the parks!!
Dave- 46 B-I-L Quiet fella apart from his laugh
Les and Dave on the left

Dan- 14- Nephew Mr Sporty and a shrewd business man

Rob-12- Mr even more Sporty but a riot going on in his head


Myself and our family along with my mum and Dad travel on the 9th October, my Sister and her’s on the 16th. We all return on the same flight on the 30th October

The Plan

Tickets: 14 day Ultimate Disney and Orlando Flex Plus apart from my sister family who have just the Flex Plus tickets.
8th October Lifts to the Travelodge Manchester Airport @ £32 a room..sweeet
9th October (FRI) Virgin Flight VS075 @ 10:25 to Orlando
10th October (SAT) Food Shopping, a stroll round Celebration then onto Old Town for Vett fest 4
11th October (SUN) Hollywood Studios including Fantasmic
12th October (MON) EPCOT – Columbus day. Out before Reflections
13th October (TUE)Breakfast out then Typhoon Lagoon
14th October (WED) Magic Kingdom out before evening
15th October (THU) Animal Kingdom and onto EPCOT for Reflections
16th October (FRI)EPCOT late start and early leaving for Sisters arrival
17th October (SAT) Day off
18th October (SUN) Day split between Hollywood Studios and Islands of Adventure
19th October (MON) Breakfast out then Blizzard Beach
20th October (TUE) Busch Gdns
21st October (WED) Magic Kingdom incl Wishes
22nd October (THU) Sea World
23rd October (FRI) Either split between Universal/Islands of Adventure or Disney H.S.
24th October (SAT) Day off
25th October (SUN) Busch Gdns
26th October (Mon) Wet n Wild
27th October (TUE) Sea World
28th October (WED) Aquatica
29th October (THU) Split between Universal and Islands of Adventure
30th October (FRI) Travel Home via VS076

Seems busy but we don’t trudge out for restaurants reservations at night much, my Mother and Father will only do 1 day in each park apart from EPCOT i would think so it isn’t as busy as it first seems.

We are staying on this Villa or the VR360 page. The owner Jayne has been a joy to deal with from start to finish, a compliment to the industry.
Car- 7 seater with Dollar (Express member) Booked via Car Hire Florida, Elle has been brilliant.
My mother has hired a scooter via Randy’s mobility, she is not registered disabled but has had numerous foot operations to straighten bones and has a replacement knee from about 7 years back. Hip will be replaced after this trip too!!

Likely eating habits, we love to BBQ and there is a great contraption at the villa. For breakfast we do IHOP/Bob Evans/Perkins (I am Bob Evans too strangley enough) we pack lunches during the day and on the times we go out at night it will be Tony Romas, Cracker Barrell and Outback. Others are noted such as Orlando Ale House in LBV area.
ESTA and API are done, seat requests complete etc and we plan to book in online it they can be bothered to have it working.

Phew. Roll on Holiday Time!!

Sounds like you're taking the party (and your own cast of characters) with you, so no matter what you do, it'll be fun.

Not bad report mate for an amateur

Have a great time, but please don't spoil our friendship by doing any banana dancing or anything, I would suggest some minor excitement with perhaps the odd balloon as an alternative?

Hope you have a splendid holiday, villa looks great by the way.
