Hi all this is our Nov/Dec 2013 PTR. As you may have guessed based on the title we are flying from down under, Melbourne to be exact. For those who don't now Melbourne is at the bottom of the east coast of Australia. We are the 2nd largest Australian city (Population approx 4 million people) and for the past few years we have been rated the most livable city in the world in a number of various global surveys. Some introductions: Me a 47 year old accountant and disney lover. I love watching disney documentaries and have about 40 of them now on our media box. I especially love the planning side of our trips having developed a pretty intense spreadsheet which includes budgeting tool and DDP calculators. The DDP calculators calculate the credits used for ADRs as well as average and maximum price of each restaurant to work out the best value for our credits. DW is a 44 teacher who likes and tolerates our disney adventures. She is the calming influence when things get hectic and the on the ground general and organiser. She hates fast rides and drops but is happy to hold onto the bags and wait for us to ride. A big contradiction is her favourite ride, Dinosaur??? Go figure? DW also acts as my agent hiring me out to friends and family, anyone going to WDW or DL who need some help or advise planning their trips. Eldest DD is 14 and still lives disney. I love the fact while most of her school frineds were getting tickets to Justin Beiber and One Direction concerts her friends were going to Disney on Ice. She is like her mum but funny thing with her is she loves splash mountain. Our youngest DD is 11 and lives Disney. She is the only one who will snuggle up on the couch and watch a Disney World documentary. She loves all the rides even the ones I hate (ToT). This is our third trip to both DL and WDW as a family. I have been a few other times whilst in the USA on business. Out plan this trip is to fly out of Melbourne on 30 Nov at 11.30am on Qantas. We arrive at LAX on 30 Nov at 6.30am US time. We have 4 nights at Grand Californian before flying out to Orlando. In Orlando we are doing a split stay 6 days at the Yacht Club and 6 Days at WL. After Orlando we have 4 nights in New York staying at the Muse just off Times Square. From there we head back to LA before flying back to Melbourne in time for Christmas. Coming soon all our ADR's, touring plans as well as some of the dramas along the way.
