I really MUST do more planning!!! I haven't even been able to pre-book our seats with Virgin though as they have a block on seat reservation system as they are updating it We fly 5th to 19th November. We are really looking forward to the food and wine festival. Loving reading your planning though, it gets me in the mood for it.

Hey Emma! I was wondering why I haven't seen your TR in a while.....didn't realize you started another PTR! I'm subbing now but I can't wait to go back and read all about your future trips later!

Hopefully you can get all of the ADR's you want! That is always what makes me the most nervous about staying onsite. Although I have to say, I have never had much of a problem booking things 180 days out. I think more and more people are booking WDW vacations more spontaneously than before, only a couple of months ahead of time. Good luck getting the rest!

Thank you all - yes booking the flights really makes it 'official' doesn't it! The next exciting step for our October vacation will be ADR booking - that will be Easter Monday I think

Thank you for the suggestions I usually watch NMBC nearer Christmas but I will make sure to watch it earlier this year! I'm so looking forward to MNSSHP, especially the Boo to You parade & Hallo-wishes, I've heard such great things about them.
I thought about Three Caballeros for the list - I do have it on dvd, but found it a bit surreal when I watched it - not sure what DH's family would think of it!

Hi Cath.. thanks for coming across to my PTR! That's odd about your VA flights.. maybe nearer the time you'll be able to pick your seats. We're also very much looking forward to the F&W festival - it's something that will make our October holiday very different to the one in August - especially as we're staying at the Boardwalk - I think we'll spend many afternoons grazing our way around the 'world'!

Thank you it is something I'm a little nervous about, booking the ADRs .. although I'm making sure to book each one exactly 180 days out, and due to the time difference here I can be online at 11am each day to make the bookings! As we're not booking anywhere like Cinderella's Royal Table or Le Cellier, I'm hopeful that we'll get all the ADRs the family asked for

Can't believe you get to go on three upcoming trips. So jealous. But...after reading your trip report about your June cruise, we have decided to go on a cruise this summer to the Bahamas. Thanks for giving such a great account of the cruise. It really swayed my decision in a good way.

Hi! Thank you - I can't believe I have three trips coming up in the next 18 months, I feel so very lucky.. I keep day-dreaming about all three of them! Really pleased you've decided to do a cruise too - I hope you love it! Are you sailing on the Dream?

Hi Lesha! Thank you - I'm really enjoying creating the newsletters and so pleased that DH's family have liked them.. for the February edition, they had all emailed me back their answers to the quiz questions within an hour of me sending it! I wasn't sure whether to do it or not.. they're not really 'Disney people' and knew that they'd think I was a little crazy, but I just find with going to WDW - the more you know and research before you go, the better the trip can be!





Hope everyone has had a great weekend - I have been studying for most of mine but this afternoon we went out for lunch, and then went to see....









The Muppets movie!!

It only came out in England last weekend, I was so pleased to finally see it - love the story & the songs.. plus all the celebrity cameos! As soon as we got home I downloaded the album from Amazon.. so I'm sure I will have "Am I a Man or a Muppet?" in my head all week now


ADRs for the August trip are all going well.. few more days and I should have a complete list so I'll share it then

Very cool that the family participated in the quiz! Hopefully the participation continues!

I never did get out to see the movie! I think its actually been close to a year since I saw any movie in the theatre! We just don't get a chance very much!

Great updates! Planning for two hours around the kitchen table sounds amazing!

I am glad you liked The Muppets! We did too! I especially love that "Man or Muppet" is nominated for an Oscar. I think that is so awesome!

The person who did the music for the movie was on an HBO show a few years back, called "Flight of the Conchords" it was a half hour comedy show with funny songs sprinkled throughout. We loved it! Don't know if you can find it in England, but it was so funny... It is probably worth a try!

We are going on the 4 night Dream in July. I am starting to get really nervous about it as I have never cruised before, but I am sure it will be fine once I feel more planned.

Hi Emma!

How are you doing? I'm so jealous that you got to see The Muppets! I want to go and watch the movie - might do two for one Wednesday and go tomorrow hehe.

Hope the studying is going well and looking forward to finding out what ADRs you made

I loved the Muppets! Everytime I'm home alone, I start singing 'Me Party.'
