Mum from Oz, another great update thanks. My current WDW dream is to stay at an EPCOT resort, have park hoppers and be on the dining plan so that we could just pop into EPCOT each night for dinner By the way, I think the Illuminations photos you posted are great and waaaay better than mine!!

I just adore the boating academy pic ( lopsided one) as it a replica of the one I have from the California LL in 2010. I had 2 kids in the boat too and boy were we all glad to get off that one....

I really did enjoy LL , our kids were just the right age at the time.despite having an almost 6yo the others are too big and doubt they would enjoy now. Did they have a water park at this LL?

They didn't have one when we went, it opened this summer (US) so we're planning a trip there next year and will probably do the water parks as it is only about $10 more. The kids loved Legoland and are still in the right age bracket, they will be 7 and 5 when we go next time.

Perfect age for LL !

they had just opened the waterpark section in California and we used it for a few hours at days end to cool down after a hot july day. It was ideally themed for the 5-9 age group.

I can lend you 3 but you should be cautious what you wish for sometimes.

Lovely pics of Peyton dressed up-so pretty! My DD was a tomboy and princesses was the LAST thing in her sights at that age so I would never been able to interest her in getting all prettied up. Her grade 1 school fancy dress dance that all her friends went to as fairies and princesses-she wanted to go as a unicorn-tested my not very clever/creative abilities!

LOL! Peyton wants a pet unicorn or a dolphin. Because as you know it is perfectly possible for a unicorn to live in a backyard and dolphin to live in a backyard swimming pool.
