It has definitely come around quick. We've only been counting down with the kids for 80 days so it's been very quick. Not sure what the next trip will be but am already thinking, researching, thinking some more .

Can't wait to tackle WDW. It seems a little daunting after DL, but I'm sure all of the reading and planning will pay off.

Have a great trip Ms.Shuttergirl. Looking foward to hear what you think of NY the second time around, and about your adventures at WDW.

We flew out 170 days ago - to do the same trip. We were loking at all the photos last night wishing we were going back this school holidays.

It's funny I was wondering myself just today whether it will feel different the second time. I think it will be even better. I will definitely let you know what I thought.

I know Travel Mum, aren't a lucky girl. Of course now I don't know when I will get back again but I'm hoping for some pixie dust to be sprinkled over my husband

You'd be in Sydney right about now...woo hoo! One flight down!

(It's ridiculous how happy and excited I am about all of you who are travelling now! Don't go deserting me in January, when it's my turn!).

we have arrived

hey everyone. Well we've arrived in New York after an epic journey. 27 hours roughly from door to door. We're exhausted but glad to be here. The peak hour traffic on the way to our hotel was something to behold. I would hate to drive here and am glad we had a car and driver with a fixed price and did not have to pay for a cab.

Checked into Hilton New York at around 6.30, room is really lovely and we were given Central Park views, heaven!!!! Showered and changed and headed out to Times Square. We needed 3 things, food, phones and wireless internet. Found Best Buys (thanks aussietravellers) and got the phone and internet sorted although the guy took ages and DH and the kids were fading fast. Liv and I begged to go to Ellen's Stardust Diner and finally DH agreed. We all had burgers in some form, I had the chicken grilled sandwich which was yum and enjoyed the entertainment as always. When our server sang she sat beside my DS and he got all shy. Got some cute photos but am too tired to even contemplate looking through them yet. Ellen's was the perfect start to the trip. Its 10pm here at the moment and everyone is asleep. I'm a bit wired but after getting no sleep on the plane I need to try to get some zzzzzz's.

Ciao for now.

Luggage - this pile grew alot through the trip


Ready to spread our wings


A welcome site


Dinner at Ellen's - so many more photos of this to share but that will come later. We don't look too awful here right after no sleep for days



Walking back to hotel first night
