The Best New Year's Eve Ever ~ The Return **SDD Boogie Time**

Castmembers

Mandy (40-and a big bit), Paul (40-something or other) & Becky (16)



Holiday Dates

26th December '09/9th January '10

Flying

Virgin VS075 10.25am

Accomodation

Pop Century Resort, WDW

Plan of Action

25th - Stay over at the Radisson, Manchester Airport
Today is going to be a day of mixed emotions. First there will be the excitement of opening our Christmas pressies, then there will be the madness of taking all the decorations down and getting the house back to normality, and finally there will be the sadness of saying goodbye to Kerry, who thankfully will be heading to WDW the following weekend with Bex (who came with us last New Year) and her family. All being well, we’ll head up to Manchester after the Dr. Who Christmas special. We’ve never stayed at the Radisson before, but I am looking forward to that short walk over to Terminal 2 the next morning

26th - Fly with Virgin (VS075) 10.25am (arrive 2.50pm)
- Check-in at Pop Century
- DTD for park tickets & Wal-Mart for supplies
It’ll be nice to be back at our ‘Home Resort’ and hopefully we’ll have a room near the Computer Pool

27th - Epcot for a.m emh – 8am (or MK for 7am if up early)
If we’re awake at stupid o’clock, then we’ll head to the Magic Kingdom for 7am, if not, then hopefully I’ll spend my first day in my fave park ~ Epcot

28th - DHS for a.m emh – 8am

29th - MK for a.m emh – 7am

30th - AK for a.m emh – 8am

31st - Lie in to prepare for tonight
- Meet Jules & Ian for the New Years Eve celebrations
- Dinner at Tutto Italia
I am soooooooo looking forward to tonight. Last New Year was the Best New Year’s Eve ever, as we had a fantastic time in Epcot with Jules & Ian. We decided that if we went again this year, we would break the drinking up a little bit by having a meal, so we have an ADR at 5.10pm at Tutto Italia. I can’t wait for this delish meal, especially the Tiramisu and hopefully lots of wine and cocktails too. After dinner we should have enough time to pick up our hats and blowers and head to the UK pavilion for 7pm and much merriment. As I type this, I have to feel sorry for poor Becky who will be babysitting 4 adolescent-acting oldies (bless her), no doubt there will be lots of bribery and treats needed to get her through this evening.





Note to self, get Jules a Cadbury’s Dairy Milk, coz even though she was able to get herself lost last year, she didn’t lose her choccie bar (Last year's New Year's Eve Report http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2062972)


1st - Lie in to recover
Self explanatory

2nd - MK or AK for a.m emh – 8am (Kerry arrives tonight )
I will be so happy and relieved when Kerry arrives at the Pop Century. She has got a busy 2 weeks planned with Bex’s family, so we won’t see much of her, but it will be lovely for Becky to spend some time in the evenings with the girls


Bex & Kerry

3rd - No a.m emh, Park ? – Jules & Ian’s last evening, Epcot
Paul & I will probably pop to Epcot for a final drinkypoo with Jules and Ian before they head off to the Rose & Crown for their final evening in WDW

4th - AK for a.m emh – 8am

5th - No a.m emh, Park ?

6th - Epcot for a.m emh – 8am ? My birthday, breakfast at O’Hanas 10.30am
Yay, "It’s my birthday, I’m gonna party like it’s my birthday, I’m gonna drink Bacardi like it’s my birthday" .. yeah, I think you get the picture. The only plans for today are brekkie with Lilo & Stitch, then hopefully in the evening there will be lots of cocktails, maybe even a super-strong Lapu Lapu or two





7th - MK for a.m emh – 8am

8th - No a.m emh, Park ?

9th - DTD Virgin check-in
- Park ?
- Fly home (VS076) 6.30pm

10th - Land 7.25am

**All plans are subject to change due to weather or hangovers**And at certain times of the day there will be the need for sunbathing, shopping and perhaps more drinkypoos**

Just read up on your last New Year trip and you all looked as though you had a fab time and a girl after my own heart, feel obliged to try out all drinks possible.

Looking forward to reading about this New Year too. Have a good one.

Your trip sounds great fun and how nice that Kerry will be coming out later ~ you won't miss her quite so much knowing that you will soon be seeing her.

We are spending New Year's Eve at Epcot so I will keep an eye out for you.
