Thanks Me too, although I'm sure it will as we have so much planned! It's always the way isn't it But the gazillions of photos that I'm sure to take should help when I get back

I wish I had known about the Disney College Programme when I was a student 24 years ago. Would have broken up 5 years at Uni very nicely! I'm going to encourage the kids though
I definitely agree that the A&E docs are crazy - they're a different breed haha I'd love to become one, one day :D

And yes, definitely encourage your kids! It will also then be a great excuse for you to go and visit whilst they are working out there Seriously though, it's a great experience, you learn so much and it doesn't matter at all if it's not related to what you want to do in the long run for example with me working in the HISK playground in DHS but studying medicine in the UK. It's hard work the ICP, but incredibly fun and rewarding if you put the work in and take it for what it is: definitely not a holiday

Thank you both!

Reality is really setting in now - can't actually believe that this time next week we'll be there!! And this will be our MK day - aaaaaaaaaahhhhh

Have finally got travel insurance sorted today - went with protectyourbubble.com. I really didn't have a clue who to go with, as pretty much every company I looked into had mixed reviews, but it's done now. Let's just hope that I won't need to use it

Also ventured into 'Home Bargains' today.... wow, that place is heaven for last minute toiletry shopping! And I think I'll leave it there actually, before I get to engrossed in shopping stuff and go all girly

Sounds like your plans have all come together perfectly Beth.

Looking forward to a mixture of live and trip report updates

So... can't believe we're a week in already!!! It has just flown!!
Apologies for the like of live updates - I've been keeping detailed notes though, and have decided I would rather do this all as a TR!
We've had a few tiny mishaps so far due to my scatty brain (I seriously don't know what is wrong with me; it must be the Orlando air) but I'll let you know all about those during the TR

So far we've visited all the parks at least once, have eaten in a few resorts including doing the Spirit of Aloha show last night (cannot recommend enough!), have done Discovery Cove, and have had a blow out shopping day!

The weather has not been ideal, but we're working through it! No way are we letting it spoil the second week! What has tainted it slightly are the huge blisters that have developed on the soles and sides of my feet. They're getting really red and sore and have been to first aid in two different parks today - I've been told that I need to visit the doctor but we'll see how it goes. My friends keep laughing at the way I now have to walk, so I'm glad somebody's amused Disney is the best natural painkiller!!

We've had some cracking laughs during this holiday which I can't wait to let you all know about! There have been lots of great pictures too, and we are making full use out of the Photopass Plus that we purchased when we got here!! I promise to share them

Two of our party have just headed off to AK to do the Run Disney Expedition Everest 5K. The original plan for the other two of us was to head to Applebee's but the state we are both in with our feet/blisters/sunburn etc etc, well, it just seems too much of an effort! Instead we've decided to drink the night away at DTD!!

Will check back in soon - thanks for reading along!!!

Sounds like you're all having a great time.
Looking forward to reading the trippie. I too in the past have gone with the intention of doing live updates but I feel it is time that can be spent doing other things. Also, it's great to re-live the memories when you are back in the U.K.
Enjoy the rest of your trio and post a few more 'snippets' if you get chance

Sounds like you're having a ball. Intrigued by your mishaps but I'm sure you'll let us know in time.

Why not pop into Walgreens and see if they can recommend something for your feet. One of the boys had a reaction to the water in the hotel pool years ago and the pharmacist was brilliant. Or you could have a few of these to forget the pain

Enjoy the rest of your holiday Beth.
