Dabecs I rang them as our reservation was for Christmas day and I had to reassure myself that everything was in place.

Of course, I forgot you went on Christmas day. I will ring when we are in Florida - always a good idea to double check anyway

My new Croc Cleos arrived today and new runners for both girls, and croc keely sandals for one daughter (I'm guessing the other pair for daughter 2 will arrive Monday). Now just waiting on delivery of new runners for hubby and I and our feet are sorted!

sigh...I feel really disorganised. I have not done any trip planning in what feels like months, have just been focused on saving money really which is oh so boring
A few weeks ago I did book our LA accommodation though so at least we have somewhere to sleep every night now. I guess that is something, still need to organise new passports for the Mr and I though so really need to get a wriggle on

It's hard when you're busy saving all those important dollars and you feel you're not getting anywhere with the planning as the trip comes closer. Hurrah for getting accommodation sorted!

Maybe just make a list of important 'to-do's like passports! Lol. Thanks for reminding me that I have to renew my sons passport!

It's hard when you're surrounded by OCD planners! Things will work out in the long run

Well I bought our tickets to Buffalo Bills Wild West show today. And apparently...also put down a deposit for a cruise on the Allure of the seas for Jan 2014. That's what happens when hubby leaves me alone with all 3 children for the whole day...

Endless. They have a huge range, good prices, free shipping on orders over $100 and they are really fast

So far I've got my accommodation in NY, Philadelphia & Anaheim booked and paid and my WDW package almost paid off. Internal flights done. I've booked the 9/11 memorial and USS Intrepid as well as got myself a matinee ticket for the Radio City Christmas show so NY is organised pretty much. The only thing in Philadelphia I need to pre book is the Liberty Bell centre. Still lots to organise though - shuttle transfers, Amtrak NY to Philly, EPCOT Segway tour, DLR tickets and World of Colour picnic as I only have one might in Anaheim and won't get to CA until lunchtime - don't want to miss a fast pass! Pretty happy with how the plans are coming along so far- still seems such a long time away though.

Well I learned that booking Amtrak is better done sooner rather than later

Your trip sounds fantastic, I hope you will do a trip report - I would love to hear more about Philly

No bother I'll have a look early next week and post what I think

Luckily that route had a lot of runs during the day and they still have seats on the cheap ones- worst case scenario I'll take the Bolt Bus as it doesn't take much longer.

As for a trip report, I'm not the most interesting writer but intend on making more of an effort to complete a travel diary so I'll attempt one!

November 2nd - I got the "big days lite" app (free) which has a count down going for me

It's exciting reading about the September travellers - should keep me busy keeping up with their trip reports and hopefully will remind me of what I have left to organise
