Thanks. We've been planning (and saving) for this for nearly two years. The only problem with being away for such a long time is I really miss our dog, who we leave with my in-laws.

The only one I don't see is Bistro de Paris located in the France pavilion at EPCOT. It has been voted the best theme park restaurant in FL for 3 years in a row. But you have a FULL ADR schedule and it looks fantastic. Here's hoping you have as great a trip as your pre-TR sounds!
I know, I really wanted to try Bistro this year, and we considered trying it instead of V&A. However DH wanted to give the Queen Victoria Room a try, so I ended up dropping it. Next time though definitely.

Thank you. I've honestly spent weeks changing this ADR line up. Every time I made an ADR I've saved the confirmation mail to my disney dining folder. By the time I'd finished cancelling, rebooking, cancelling again etc I think I'd made something like 140 different ADRs throughout the course of the past 6 months!

Thank you. We're really looking forward to trying the Beach Club and Contemporary. Beach club was my pick, and DH wanted to try the CR so we're both happy!

Thank you. I definitely don't want it to be time to come home. I'm hoping to write up the report while we're there, and hoping to get the first instalment done this weekend!

We're now finished work and ready to go! We're heading to Newcastle Airport tomorrow for our flight to Amsterdam at 1:20PM. Can't believe it's finally here

Oh my gosh! I am so jealous! We did Universal on our trip last year and we had a blast. I highly recommend the Pear Cider at the Three Broomsticks. It's delish! Can't wait to read your reviews. Have a fabulous trip

Thank you. I'm really looking forward to the Three Broomsticks and I love Pear cider we get in the UK so if it's similar to that , I may give it a try.

And we're off!!

Ok, so we're finally heading to Orlando.

We spent Wednesday in Amsterdam which was an amazing city, and we definitely need to go back for a longer trip there. We toured the Anne Frank House which was amazing, it was even smaller than I imagined, then took a canal tour.

Couple of pics from Amsterdam.

The amount of canals and bicycles is mind-blowing!


Stunning Architecture:


We then flew back to London last night, although to the wrong airport as British Airways cancelled our Gatwick flight, so we had to get there from Heathrow on our own expense. Not happy about that as it cost £50 for the bus to Gatwick for our connecting flight to Orlando today.

I'm now sitting in the Virgin Clubhouse waiting for boarding to start. And I finally have some food porn to share, although from the Clubhouse not Disney.

My bellini (very good)


My Eggs Benedict and DH's smoked Haddock crepe in the background. Both were really tasty!


Flight is on time currently so we should be at the Beach Club for around 7pm, if all goes well.

I hope to get online this weekend and provide an update with some Disney food pics!

Loving the start! Glad you really enjoyed Amsterdam but sorry to hear about the airport confusion.

Yay on relaxing in the Virgin Clubhouse and getting some food and drinks in before your plane journey
