Hey Everyone, Update for the night I finally booked Las Vegas accommodation we are going to be staying at Flamingos Hotel and Casino.We are staying in a Go Deluxe room. Its not too expensive and the rooms don't look too bad so that's a plus. While we are in Vegas I think I might surprise Ricky with a Flight to the Grand canyon.
and we are going to see Katy Perry I am so excited because I didn't get to see her when she was in Australia.
As I said before I have been to Vegas before but its Ricky's First time so it will be good for us to experience things we both never have.
I don't have too much more to update tonight cause its late at night and my brain isn't working very well so I will update you all again tomorrow.

Ok after Vegas we are on a red eye flight to new york. We leave at 11.45pm from Las Vegas and arrive in New york at 5.10 am or something like that.
We are in new york for 7 days 6 nights.

We are there for Thanksgiving I am so excited for this holiday as we dont have it in Australia. I am also really excited for the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade.
If anyone has any suggestions of where we can eat that day it would be good because i have been told its really hard to find food lol.

We are looking also to do a day trip to Niagra falls i think there is only overnight trips though so we may not be able to do that.

I booked a day trip to Atlantic city and the woodbury common outlets for black Friday. apparently they are mad sales after thanksgiving on Black Friday it think its called so hopefully i can get some bargains.

We will also do all the regular touristy things but im not sure if I should book those now or if I should wait to im in new york. are they cheaper if you just go and see the sites for entry or should I book before?

YOur help is greatly appreciated.

Well Thats about all I know tonight other than I wish the Aussie dollar would go back up again cause I want to pay for a few more things.

Next up The first WDW stay and our plans for that so far.

OK so now onto the fun stuff.

We fly into Orlando from New york on the 29th November we got a great deal on a flight from southwest for $82 each but we get in at 10.30 at night so late check in.

We will get magical express to POP where we are booked in a preferred room with free dining. I was so excited this came out. And it was for our dates so that's a plus.

I Just hope we get a king bed.

I just paid the final payment on our booking today so its all confirmed so happy I don't have to worry about that anymore.

The only thing I have to do is look at some dining reservations. I know we only have quick service dining but we want to do a couple of sit down meals while we are there any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

We have 11 nights at POP we are there until the 10th December while we are there we are going to the Mickey very merry Christmas party. On the 8th of December I think will have to look at my tickets again. lol

I still have to work out what days and what parks i am going too.

Oh I feel so unorganized.

Next up is the Cruise!

OK Im back so on the december we will be heading off on a Disney Magic Western Caribbean Cruise our First Disney cruise, well actually our first cruise ever.

I am very very excited about the cruise actually I might even be more excited about that than Walt Disney world.

So Im not sure if we will do a Palo dinner for fear we will miss out on something else. I think we might do Palo High Tea.

I am looking forward to the FE for our trip I already have some exciting things planned for this.

There are a couple of other Aussies on our cruise too so thats exciting!!.

We havent decided on any of the port adventures yet. But we cant book them until the 26th of September so we will work it our then.

I dont know too much else other than its only 73 days!!

I am getting excited now I just want it to be here its taking way too long!!!

OK so Im a little excited today!! In the post I just got a Disney Cruise line letter that has my name on it and welcome Dykes Party!! I know its only little but it kinda makes me happy that i got something sent to me that i will actually receive before I leave. It also has a western Caribbean brochure in it so now I have to go and search to see if we need Visa's for Cozumel and Grand Cayman I don't think we do because we are a Visa Waiver country but i better Check!!

Anyways Next up I will update you all on our second stay at WDW

What a fantastic trip!! I'm a fellow Aussie and very jealous.

I just wanted to say that you need to book to go to the Statue of Liberty if you want to go onto the island(I am going next month and booked too late to go up the Crown and I think it will be closed when you are there..the Crown not the whole thing).
