We've finally booked!!!

Yay I need to celebrate After weeks of deliberation I booked our flights this evening! 9 adults, a two year old and a 14 month old flying with Virgin DUB - LGW - MCO from May 4th to 21st! Got it for €516 (£411 approx) per adult with great times! Let the planning begin in earnest

Thank you Delighted with the price! Have a bit of a layover going out (3 hrs in LGW) but with 2 kids I'd prefer have too much time than too little I'm going crazy all day making lists for possible ADRs and offsite eats and suitable rides for DS etc I'm SO excited!

3 hours will fly by. I once had a 9 hour wait in Philly airport. If the price is right it doesn't bother me at all.

Well we had the option of having a 75 min layover but with two small kids things are definitely not going to go to plan so best safe than sorry The only thing I'm worried about is immigration in Orlando. We get there at 5pm-ish and I know theres quite a few flights arriving around then and earlier. It'll probably be packed and with us having to wait to get the buggies off the plane we'll be even more delayed than I'd like. But for that price I don't mind Now just to get the villa and car and park tickets that cheap!!

I can't wait for the real planning to begin! Except of course I woke up this morning with a really awful sore throat so spent today feeling all sorry for myself! I'll catch up with the planning tomorrow

Thank you I think I may end up going OTT with plans My parents are much more comfortable with eating in the villa every day but DH and I have agreed that we'll do at least one CM with DS and we're *thinking* of Ohana for our wedding anniversary night - and my mom has promised to mind DS at least one other night as we don't get date nights here anymore so we'll be taking full advantage of the babysitter over there Only 35ish more days til I can make ADRs so I'm sure to be on here asking advice between now and then! The only time we've had an ADR before was when our TA did it for us so I'm a tad unsure about it! Looking forward to getting stuck in though And hoping to keep a trip diary while I'm away so I can do a TR when I get back! I enjoy reading everyone elses so it'd be nice to 'pay it forward'

You're going the same time as us ^_^ I can't wait to be able to book ADRs. Only 7 and a bit months left! Christmas can't come soon enough, after that the time will fly by
