Thank you all for the Birthday wishes. We had a great day today.
Matt woke to find the room decorated with banners & balloons on his bed, he then had to try focus to open cards. Lots of money, both Dollars & Pounds. We gave him a cheque along with a savings account from his Grandma, they will help him thru University.

We also got a few Vinylmations incl Happy Birthday.




He then opened an envelope with this inside


This took him 600ft above Bay Lake, he looked down on MK and over to Epcot.












Lucy & Lily made a Cookie & Lolly arrangement


After parasailing we went into MK til mid afternoon, lunch at Harbour House then swim for a couple of hours.
Whatever Matt does Lilly copies.

This evening Matt chose Grand Floridian Cafe for his Birthday meal. He couldn't have chosen anywhere better. From having one of our worst dining experiences yesterday we had one of our best today. Our server, Ben was as good as it gets, nothing was too much trouble, when he gave us the menu we voiced our disaproval of the parmasan fries being removed from the menu. He said he would go talk to chef and see what he could do, thankfully someone in the kitchen had worked there 10 years and knew how they made them.
Ben interacted well with Lily, playing animal noises with each other.
Dessert time, we had arranged for a Mickey cake, Ben also added a candle and we all sang Happy Birthday, the whole restaurant joined in with the singing and clapping.
We opted not to have dessert but we ended up bringing home a boxed fondue for Matt and the rest of us brought home a chocolate Mickey each.
At the end of the meal Matt asked if he could have his 21st Birthday there.
Book for sale in GF shop

What a wonderful way to spend Matt's 18th Birthday

I was in a dodgy nightclub in Derby for my 18th, not quite the same thing

Looks like Matt had an amazing time. The food, the parasailing and that cake!!

And how funny that all your pictures of Matt's 18th appear on the 18th page of this thread!

Look forward to more updates - cannot quite believe we'll be there in just over 3 weeks - I can feel the magic!

What beautiful photo's

Will drop some hints when our LO's are nearer that age (only a decade to go), it would be a good excuse for another trip (not that we need one!!).....
