welcome

i have updated your details on the main check in -- we will also be over there similar time, but i think we will miss being in the same place at the same time

i too am on bread & water rations.. just found out my job may only have a shelf life of 6 months, so it's save as much as possible in those 6 months to ensure that we go on this trip.. our flights are already prepaid thanks to our cancellation this year, so there is no way i am losing that money by having to cancel next year

Oh no Alicia! Good idea to save as much as you can while the getting is good.

Does anybody know how flexible HoJos are with their bookings! I really am desperate to book but I'm not sure of dates yet. They wont be confirmed until mid - late January. Holiday-planning hell for me

Hi. Can I join in.

Our plans are not definite yet as I keep changing my mind. But at this stage they look like this.
18th Sep: 3 nights at a Universal Orlando hotel
21st Sep: 7 night Fantasy cruise
28th Oct - 9th Oct: WDW and a few other Orlando attractions. I've got my fingers firmly crossed for free dining being offered during this time next year.

I plan on booking the Auckland to LAX flights next weekend so will be a bit more secure in my plans by then.

Of course you can! Are you booking through ANZ? Are you getting a Skycouch? Sorry, I'm just nosey! We are thinking about getting one next year and want to hear what people think about them. Not that it will really help me if you ARE getting one since we will most likely be going before you! Haha! I'm rambling now. Too arly in the morning. Need coffee.

We will be booking ANZ and I'm a bit torn on the whole skycouch thing. My husband and I are quite big, tall people so with or without the skycouch we'll feel cramped. Plus those skycouches look quite flat and hard to me in the pictures.

It's $200 extra each way and I'm thinking I might try it for the return leg but not the trip there.

On the way there we will be so excited I think we can forgo a bit of comfort. Plus, we won't know what we're missing at that stage.
Also, it'll be a mid week flight, a few weeks before NZ school holidays, so I'm quietly hoping the plane will have empty seats that we can spread out to.

On the way back it'll be school holidays so I'm guessing the flight will be pretty full and we'll enjoy some slightly nicer seats.

Of course that is all guess work and my plans could be completely flawed. I tend to overthink things sometimes

No firm dates yet, late Sepember is likely though...

DH has been back at work for approximately 1.5 hours and he's sending me messages asking when our next vacation is

Has anybody checked out the 'Limited Tim Magic' stuff for next year? I'm a bit torn because it looks like we will be there for Villians week. Would be awesome if we were sans kids, but at 2,4 and 6 methinks they will be rather scared of them. And it will be über-popular ie.crowded. Still, we don't know our dates yet, so we might miss it after all.
