Thanks. Yes that's right Cruising with CCL, sorry! It's the Backstreet Boys - my friend and I are huge fans of theirs and I have been since I was 11, we usually just stick to their Australian tours every 2 years but this year is their 20th anniversary celebration and Kevin is now back in the group (he left in 06 to pursue family and broadway) so its going to be a great cruise. I know BSB aren't everybody's cup of tea but they're my favourite group/artist and have seen me through quite a lot of hardship in my life, they're music and voices are just magical to me so I am happy and excited to be on the boat especially since the boat is sold out so should be a fun time. I am way more excited for Disney though but only because I have seen and met BSB 14 times before and 0 for Mickey & friends lol.

No need to apologise or justify your love of the BSB. It sounds like you are booked on something you are going to love.

I know the feeling, Alicia! I said to DH last night that I only had 7 months to organize everything, not enough time! It sounds ridiculous I know

i know, it's crazy. just over 7 months to get everything done...and this year is going by so quickly... i mean, it's mid feb already!!!

i have most of my trip organised,it's just the saving for and paying for all of it that is stressing me out. i know where we will be going, when, for how long, where we are staying, what we are doing etc.... it's just literally getting the money together (and losing the weight i want to lose) that will be the biggest challenge (made more so by the fact that i am a stress-eater )

we are all in this together though, which helps me on those dark days when i despair of pulling it all off

I am starting to think about ADR's as our booking window will open late March.

Car hire is also proving difficult. Cars/vans that hold 7 people do not have enough luggage space for 7 people. I did have this wild idea that I could put one suitcase inside the other, then put all the packing cubes out of the larger suitcase under the kids feet.

Congrats on your booking Andonna.

OK, got plane booked (Sydney - WashingtonDC) and the Vegas-Syd legs, got accom paid for at Disney's Grand Californian, and WashingtonDC, New York, LA, Chicago all paid for with credit card points Seattle paid for, San Fran booked, Vegas all paid for. I've got 2 weeks I've got to figure out what to do yet, depending on internal flights it may be either back to Disneyland or WDW. I haven't done Disneyland and WDW in the one trip for a long time.

I am just full of beans and excitement for this trip, there's quite a few firsts for me; it's my first trip to the US, first trip to Disney, first trip to Universal, first Halloween experience, first cruise..first everything it seems lol! I was born with kidney failure and had been on Dialysis for almost 3 years and I never thought I'd get the chance to visit the US so it's been bitter sweet to plan this trip, now though I just wish it was October already because I am SO ready to board that A380!! Any way I'm sorry for the long post, I am happy to see there's an Aussie board here!
Welcome Lisa!

Congratulations on booking your first US trip. You are going to have a fantastic time with everything you've got planned. It's great you can travel given your past health issues. Best wishes.

Jade I feel your pain. We ended up getting the Chevrolet suburban which fit all 7 of us and the suitcases fine. I was nervous because coming to LA our car was the much smaller Toyota Siena and we managed to squeeze everyone in! Alright so there were small carryons on laps et its Ok if just for a transfer say from airport to hotel but not too good if luggage has to in car for most of the time eg road trip
