Yay for being there baf65!

Have a wonderful time dabecs!

One more week for us!!!!! Soooo excited. I finish my job tomorrow (permanently, we relocate back to Melbourne from NSW straight after New Year) and we head down to Melbourne on Saturday morning so I feel like I'm practically on holidays already.
Thanks mindy32.

dabecs, very excited for you. The day before we left for our trip last year I remember feeling very excited, nervous etc etc. So many emotions. Enjoy WDW. The first time is always amazing. Actually every time is amazing. Also NYC

Glad you have arrived baf65!!

We have arrived in LA! Only one more flight to go

Flight over took a bit longer than expected, fuelling issues in Melbourne meant we sat on the run way for close to an hour and then a lady got really sick on the flight so on arrival in LAX we had to wait for paramedics before we could disembark. So all up our 14 hour flight took about 15.5 hours. (wouldn't that be your worst nightmare to get sick on such a long flight )

We have checked through the delta lounge and are having some Maccas - 9:30am here, 3:30am Melbourne time. We got up at 5am so it's been nearly 24 hours. I slept for less than an hour on the flight and I'm feeling it!

When we were coming into land the girls were both clapping and cheering, and going through customs the official said the girls were so polite that American children could learn from them. I'm a happy mum

I was clapping and cheering for you too when I read the line "only one more flight to go".

Have a safe flight and good luck getting some sleep.

Oh Dabecs, , that is great that you are nearly there. Sounds like your little princesses are winning friends and impressing people right from the start. Have an amazing day, get some decent sleep and hit the ground running.

Hope your flight over to the East Coast goes well. And that you get some much needed sleep soon. How wonderful that your girls are being so well behaved.

I've put a quick update on the blog

It's after 10am here and everyone is still asleep! We finally got to bed about 10pm so we should all feel good today after such a solid night's sleep

I got my 4 parcels (3 Disney 1 Target) and everything is great! Only problem was Target sent a dark green polo instead of a Leopard print dress in the parcel?! I will shoot off an email but it's a pity because I bought matching ones (the other arrived) and the girls were going to wear them tomorrow for AK. It's not a big thing though and certainly won't spoil my day!

Going to spend today looking around the resort, will go to Artists Palette for brunch and maybe have a swim this afternoon. We have dinner at 1900 Park Fare tonight which I am really looking forward too
