Just had to let you know that I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your latest trip report. I laughed out loud more than a few times, I just love your dry British wit.

I had read one of your trip reports a few years ago so knew I had struck gold when I stumbled upon this one. Then I followed the link to your website and read about your California trip. After reading that report about the beauty of Yosemite and your visit to Disneyland, I am now itching to go there! I've gotten some books out of the library on California and am trying to work out our DVC points, the cost of airfare for five across the country, and most importantly, convincing my husband to go! I must get him to read your report on it, the beer references alone should get him to look favorably on it!!

Thank you for sharing your escapades with us, you have a beautiful family and I'm glad you had such a wonderful vacation together.

Thanks very much for the great report. I never was really into reading trip reports until I started reading this one. Now I am looking for others but few have your eye for comic detail.

Well done Kev, another wonderful tale. An immeasurable sadness that we couldn't make it, however reading your reports has all but transported me to the scene - minus the hangover though!

As the song goes we'll meet again, and I am sure that some time we'll reprise our holidaying

Hope you had as much fun in glastonbury as i did!! Great holiday report and pictures, best i have read on here.

Just wandering why you decided to just do disney parks across the two weeks, i could nt imagine a orlando holiday without universal or seaworld! Was anyone in your group tempted to jump into a taxi to ride dueling dragons or say hi shamu?

Well, the original plan was for the first 3 nights to be spent in a Universal hotel. Unfortunately things at work have been a bit touch and go and so we couldn't justify the additional £600 it would have cost the 4 of us for rooms and tickets.
We haven't actually spent two weeks on site for many years, so we thought we would give it a try.

Hi Kev,

Haven't had chance to comment on your reports but have enjoyed reading them.

You say something that really rings true for many at the moment, regarding future trips and when we will get the chance to go again 'money' etc
It's become more and more expensive, I suppose many of us have been very lucky to go so often and that's something to be grateful for.

Glad you had a good time.
