but here goes:

fri oct 18 - vaustralia flight bne - lax
fri oct 18 - thurs oct 24 - disneyland resort, probably a side trip to san diego or hollywood/LA area, and will be going to mnsshp at least once
thurs oct 24 - virgin america flight lax - mco
fri oct 25 - sat oct 26 - wdw, focussing mostly on MK in the morning and then epcot & illuminations at night.
sat oct 26 - sat nov 2 - dcl western fantasy cruise, port adventures in costa maya, grand cayman and possibly doing stingray feeding at castaway cay
sat nov 2 - mon nov 4 - universal orlando including harry potter world, maybe KSC side adventure
mon nov 4 - virgin america flight mco - lax, then virgin australia flight lax - bne
wed nov 6 - arrive home
mon nov 11 - return to work

still lots to book and pay for (eek, just over 6 mths and lots of savings still to be achieved ) and organise, but those are the concrete plans at this stage
Just like my planning Gotta wait for the cash to start coming in for it to start flowing out again

That's awful Alicia. It's good to hear though that you are looking at the bright side and are happy to go back to work.

Welcome back Karen. Your plans look great.

Wow Alicia-what rotten luck. Are any of the medical and related ongoing costs covered by the taxi's insurance? Take care.

Thought things have been a bit quiet on the Karen front? Plans sound good. Be interesting to hear how the two villas compare.

so plotting and scheming continues

trying to juggle the intricate planning for wdw and the 2 cruises is working out to be a bit of a brain freeze type process at the moment..i keep jumping back and forth and are getting a slightly bit muddled...

so have booked dh into open water padi course cruise #1..so thats shore excursions taken care of.....so just shore excursions and dining left to organise for cruise #2..

wdw..i keep cancelling and rebooking dining..cant make up my mind, and have bought UST/IOA forward a day so that throws out my AK tour and dive at epcot, therefore changing dining accordingly....oh well could be worse..

still stressing over the 2hr 34 min time i have between delta and qantas flight coming home....fingers crossed its enough time, both delta and QF say it is but I hate being rushed. Interline baggage (if they do it) should make it so much easier...bags checked in MCO thru to syd...no need to get them at lax and re check them.

DH needs a new passport, we both need ESTA, visa card screaming at me to be fed.....so business as usual!

Sounds a lot like my trip planning, although we haven't had to resort to VISA just yet. Only a matter of time though...

We all need ESTAs here too (as well as DH & DS needing new passports). Won't do until August though, so that we get the most life out of them.

The dollar hit 1.05 today.

That was the threshold I was waiting for, so I have bought my Annual Pass and Photopass+
