MUST DOS:

There’s too many to write about, so I have broken down the next section into parks...






Ahh when you can see the castle and you know you’re in Disney! We love to just hang out on Main Street and take it all in. The parades and shows are fab, can’t wait to get there for rope drop and watch the opening show!


MUST DO ATTRACTIONS:


Haunted Mansion:



Dying to get back on this ride (sorry I couldn’t help it ) Always been my favourite themed attraction, but has now been made extra special by our engagement. Looking forward to reliving some very happy memories!


Splash Mountain:



Can’t wait to take mum back on this one - we got absolutely soaked last time!!


Big Thunder Mountain:



We just love this one, especially in the dark - that’s a tradition of ours


Space Mountain:



I always get the giggles on this one, so much fun!


Teacups:



Another tradition to take silly pics of eachother while spinning has to be done! Super Alice in Wonderland fan too


Wishes:



True Disney magic that brings tears to my eyes when I just hear the music. Can’t wait for this so much.


MUST EATS:

Dole Whip Float / Iced Coffee Floats:



Andy got super addicted to Dole Whip Floats on our last trip, he has decided he is saving up his snack credits for these


Cinammon rolls:



Not sure if Main Street Bakery will be re-open when we go, but I hear Gastons has these so have to get us one of these! Nom nom nom

SOME QUICK UPDATES:

We did our ESTAs on saturday and they have all come back approved already

Travel insurance is now sorted, so that's another tick on the list!

I bought myself a swimming costume from debenhams for the water parks! I'm not very adventurous with my wardrobe (tis mainly black) so this ones a bit girly and quite flattering...



And I made myself a notebook ready for me to stick in my itinerary / menus /TR etc. Being a graphic designer has it's perks - I was able to illustrate this lil guy for the front...



The print quality from vistaprint was really good so I'm pretty chuffed with it

Still got a few things left to sort out like mouskeeping envelopes and more holiday shopping but feel like it's coming together nicely

Aww thanks everyone, I'm really pleased with how well it came out, and I just love that green dinosaur! I bought a christmas decoration of him like this on our last trip, so knew he would make a great diary cover for our next trip!

I can't wait to see the rest of your plans!!! I completely echo your MK must-dos/eats. I also cannot wait to see new fantasyland - though the oldies are always the goodies !

I'm really looking forward to O'hana - I've heard great things and I do LOVE a bit of tiki-themie

I hope to take this one at a slower pace this time, and just stroll around the World Showcase taking it all in as we kinda rushed through them all a bit last time.


MUST DO ATTRACTIONS:


Soarin’:



I can’t wait to take my mum on this one as I know she’ll love it as it wasn’t there when we went the first time


Test Track:



Another one my mum didn’t get to do last time, and I’m looking forward to the updated version. My fav bit is the speed section where you can feel the wind rush through your hair!


The Seas with Nemo and Friends / Living Seas:



I’m a huge Nemo / sharks fan and I love to watch all the sea life, so this one is where we’ll spend a lotta time looking at it all.


Illuminations:



I remember seeing this when I was a child, but we skipped this one last trip as we were all kinda tired so am excited to see it again this time.


Spaceship Earth:



an EPCOT legacy that just has to be done! Remember to smile for the picture!!


MUST EATS:


Doofenslurper:



Huuuge Phineas and Ferb fan so really want to try one of these!!


France:



I love all things french patisserie so am sure to head over these to use up some snack credits!


Mexico:





Hoping to get some counter service here as I love Mexican food or maybe try all the different types of Tequila!


Norway / Germany:





Wanna get me some school bread and other sweet goodies at Karamell-Kuche around here nom nom!

IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I UPDATED...

Well I haven't updated here in a while! Lots of things happening lately, some good, and some bad. Work has been mental, we sadly lost Andrew's Grandma a few weeks back, we crazily booked a few days away in Disneyland Paris 3 weeks before WDW are just a few of them. It's been all go in one way or another.

But I'm back in the holiday planning mood today! And todays current countdown is...



It's coming around so quickly all of a sudden, I'm not sure I'm prepared! You spend all this time looking forward to it and wishing it to hurry up, and suddenly it's crept up on you and you still have so much to do!! I want it to slow down a bit now, or I need to ramp up the planning as I will miss it so much when it's gone need to take it all in and enjoy every last bit.

One thing I managed to get done today are my mousekeeping envelopes to match my notebook...



I've been collecting and printing things off that I need to stick in it and the pile is growing! Better get moving!

This is my fav park to visit in the evening - love all the glitz and glamour, neon signs etc. This park turns on some kinda magic after dark! I also just love all the animation side of it, being a designer / illustrator so could spend a long time here just taking it all in.

MUST DO ATTRACTIONS:


Star Tours



Can’t wait to take my mum on this one, this is one of our favs! We have a great memory from our first trip when we went on it and I loved it so much, we decided to leave the others in the group and go on it again just us 2. And then, we went on it again!! I was addicted. Mum said we can just tell the others we were gone so long because the queues were long hahaha.


Rock’n’Roller Coaster:



Coaster junkie heaven! Mum loves this one too and hasn’t been on this version yet (I think it had just been built when we went first time) so she’ll be excited for this one.


Toy Story Mania:



This is Andy’s fav Disney ride! Must rush for FPs when we get there otherwise I don’t think he would forgive me. We had such a great laugh on it when the rockets fly past your face haha.


Fantasmic!:



This show is truly amazing pure Disney magic! Can’t wait for this one, gonna try and see it at least twice on this trip. Another one mum will love!


MUST EATS:

Apart from our Sci-Fi Dine in meal, there’s not too much here that really takes my fancy for counter service. Probabaly head to Fairfax Fare or Starring Rolls from the reviews I’ve read, Mac and cheese gourmet hot dog anyone??
