I loved taking pics outside but there were so many bees and bugs flying around, not to mention it was already so hot and humid that day (a recurring theme).

So my news.....I have worked for the same guy for 9.5 years now and this has been my only job ever, I started when I was 16. The company is a lot smaller now and there has been a possible chance of redundancy looming over my head, so in December I had a job interview, my first actually as I walked right into my current job. It went great and on Wednesday I was told they didn't want to see me for a second interview, but they wanted to offer me a job, which I have accepted and will start on the 30th January! I am a mixture of excited and scared at this point but it's more money which means we can move quicker and start saving for mortgage deposit and future Disney trips.
Completely missed this, but congratulations! How exciting!

Stefy, I love the updates. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay at the AKL (it has become our new favorite resort, over CSR and the Polynesian and we can't wait to stay there again in 2013 for our 30th wedding anniversary).

Dave looks so cute looking through the fence waiting for the animals to come out.

So glad you guys enjoyed Boma. It's one of our favs!

Great updates! Love all the surprises! I wish I could surprise Brandon with an upgrade of a resort, but he probably wouldn't care, so it's kind of pointless!

The AKL room is beautiful, but what's with the bathroom? Where was the shower? Love the pictures of the resort, it's so pretty there!

Boma is probably my favorite breakfast at WDW right now, it's so good!

Concierge at AKL, what a wonderful, double, surprise! We stayed at AKL for the first time in Oct, and fell in love! I'd really like to do concierge someday!

Yum, Boma breakfast! That is where DH and I ate the morning after we got engaged, so it will always hold a special place in in my heart!

Just caught up and loved all the updates so far! Your wedding was just beautiful! You look so pretty, and that location is lovely. I especially love the floating lanterns and the awesome pic of you on the balcony overlooking the sea. So pretty!

An AKL CL room is such a great surprise! I'd love to stay there with a balcony overlooking the savannah. The CL lounge looks so cool overlooking that amazing lobby. Loved all of Dave's pics from that morning, too!

Can't wait to hear about your cruise. We're (sort of) considering a cruise, but we don't think we'd be able to handle it haha, so I'm very interested in hearing what you guys thought!

Thanks I am sure if you surprised him with the Poly or GF he would be well chuffed

Dave was standing in the shower for that shot of the bathroom.

It was nice to do CL, although we didn't get to enjoy the lounge as much as we arrived late, but we made use of it before we left for the cruise Defo want to stay CL again as we want to do the exclusive safaris they offer which sound awesome

Hey you made it over Thanks for joining in and for the lovely comments I wish we could get married again as it was such an amazing day, but we got the next best thing, celebrating our 1yr Anniversary there in September

You guys should defo do a cruise, its so much fun totally different to the parks. Hopefully I will be doing an update soon, we're hooked on Supernatural at the moment so that is keeping me away from the laptop in the evenings

What a lovely surprise for Dave with the car service. What a welcome site after your flight delay.

And CONGRATS Dave on the new job! It must be so exciting for you. Good Luck!

And cruising is the best, ain't it?! We love to cruise. I think that is my most favorite way to vacation any more. Glad you had a good time and I can't wait to hear about it.

I was so glad we had the car service because at that time of night and travelling on the ME would have just done me in

Cruising is awesome and a totally different experience to the parks as well

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your last two updates. I read them yesterday so I forget some of the details. All I know is there were wonderful pictures involved and the surprise upgrade to AKL was a huge hit. Looking forward to reading about the cruise.

Congrats to Dave on the new job!

Also, what a lovely idea with the car and the AKL upgrades! We're now completely spoiled and will never do anything other than a car when we travel to Disney. It's worth the money not to stress.

Looking forward to hearing more!

Stefy, I just came here to wish you safe travels to Disneyland Paris and a wonderful and stressfree stay there.
Enjoy the visit (keep in mind this is good old Europe and people shove and jump lines )
Have a sandwich at EoS for me! (and maybe an adult drink too )

Enjoy yourselves!
