I was thinking the very same thing Dabecs. I'm sure it will all be much more settled but we should be counting our blessings that we missed it. Can you imagine how scary it would be to be in a strange city, in a hotel, with no family/friends/resources when this is happening. Far out.

So to answer your question, no we aren't checking into AKL on 9 Dec, sob sob. We are checking into POFQ.

What about yourself?
Oh that is a bit sad - BUT you could use all that free dining in the AKL restaurants and pretend you are staying there!

I asked cause 9 Dec is my last night at AKL

Oh ok, well we fly into Orlando at around 9.30pm and likely won't hit WDW until 11ish at least.

I hope you have a wonderful time, we really need to organise a Canberra Dismeet.

OH wow PIO, that has come around quickly. You must be so excited. And such a different adventure without DS. I hope you are planning on doing a TR as I always enjoy your witty take on - well everything.

Dabecs, have a safe flight. Hopeing everything clears up in NYC for you, and that it doesn't affect your trip too much.

Can't wait to read about your trip!
