    Great to meet you too Deb... Oops I mean Bec. Hope DS is feeling a little better.

    DH says I've taken my disboards addiction to a whole new level now. He thinks disboards is a conspiracy and that we all book and travel en masse.

    So, back today from The Fantasy, such an appropriate name :lovestruc
    We didn't do any shore excursions, didn't need to :)
    Loved the service, the facilities, the staff, the spaces, just loved, loved, LOVED!
    DH also loved it and we did line up in the queue to book another but there was just too many people but we're definately going again :goodvibes

    Have checked into Coronado Springs tonight, had dinner at Biergarten, sat with a couple of newlyweds from Long Island, really nice people!
    Hotel is old but clean, having previously stayed at Hilton Bonnet Creek and on the Fantasy i'm feeling extremely spoilt and precious though :lmao:

    Off to Magic Kingdom tomorrow, need to be awake in 7.5 hours to get ready to make it for rope drop ;)

    Amazing trip so far!

    So far we've done EPCOT (briefly), Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studio's.
    EPCOT, it was quite dark when we got to walk around and the fireworks were on so we took advantage and hit Soarin' :goodvibes
    Magic Kingdom WOW words can not describe how unprepared we were for it, different to Disneyland, I don't have a favourite though (does that make me a Disney tragic?).
    Today we hit Hollywood Studio's, started badly :worried:
    Got there about 10:30, my DH now understands that you need to get there early after DS missed out on JEDI training academy, then we hit Star Tours, so hot in there and DS came out and proceeded to vomit (no magic there), then DH felt off and my tummy was a little queasy.
    I actually asked them if they wanted to leave, but they both said no.
    We then headed for lunch at Hollywood and Vine for the character lunch with Handy Manny and Jake the Neverland Pirate.
    I really dislike their system of the customer making an ADR, giving a credit card to hold the "reservation" turning up on time then waiting behind the masses, why bother with a reservation system when the customers are being made to wait 45 minutes past their "reservation" time :mad:
    DH also has been suffering gout since the cruise :headache:
    And left his medication at home (no rocket scientist here :rolleyes1)
    So tonight we headed off to a Dr for an appointment, $89 then medication (which he has at home) $130 for that :scratchin
    Unbelievable...

    :faint:

    Bugger about the vomiting and the gout. Yay for $130 quick fix and being able to get back on track.

    Glad you are mostly having a blast. I'm so glad you loved Magic Kingdom. It really is like picking a favourite child when trying to pick a favourite :rotfl:

    ::yes::

    When we first got into Magic Kingdom we stood just inside the park and took it in for about 10 minutes.
    I love the Halloween overlay! Everything looks amazing!

    We got so much done yesterday, splash mountain 3 times, space mountain, BTMRR...we did do more but it now escapes me :laughing:
    MNSSHP tomorrow night! :goodvibes

    Can you see why the DL veteran that I am is now a WDW convert?! It's Disney on steroids isn't it?!! :thumbsup2

    Hey, with MNSSHP, I suggest you take a back pack in with you. Accept the little trick or treat bags they give you and, when they fill up, find a discrete spot and empty them into your back pack. Then continue trick or treating with empty bags. Repeat the process as necessary and you end up with a big loot of candy that will last for weeks! :rotfl2:

    Animal Kingdom today!

    So, it's 7:37am and I'm sitting here with my phone working on a budget to make a trip next year a reality :scratchin
    I have become a tragic.

    Crunching the numbers if we knuckle down again it is totally doable :goodvibes

    DH will skip the parks most of the time, he wants to golf instead, but I am obsessed and DS is along for the ride :lmao:

    We want to cruise again, stay at Hilton Bonnet Creek (unless they do a free dining plan again) then I say Disneyland on the way home...but that's just me :p

    Glad to hear you ate having such a good time! My sympathies re DH leaving his medicate at home. My DH did the same thing last year with his arthritis meds and suffered badly just at the end of the trip.

    Glad you're having a great time Bec. Looking forward to the detailed TR when you return. ;)

    And the new PTR....complete with DH packing his medication before you leave.
