    Yes I did! :goodvibes You can read it here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2852408

    We did cram a lot into our short half term week trip as my other half is a college lecturer so we are restricted to school holidays - I see you're a teacher yourself so I'm sure you know the feeling ;) (this is the spanner in our DFTW planning works as we speak!) - glad you can take it much easier than we did if you're going for 3 weeks!

    The weather was perfect for us - it was mid 20s during the day and then cooler at night (some nights we needed a jumper or something to cover up). I'm not a huge fan of the heat (our August trip should be fun! :laughing:) so this was great.

    You must do the MNSSHP, such a great experience! :thumbsup2

    Hey! We have had the worst broadband lately!

    I love your TR!! I am so enjoying it (still reading), thanks!

    August wasn't as bad as I thought it would be (it was pretty hot getting married outside in that dress, but it was worth it, LOL) and I am not a fan of sweltering heat either.

    The reason I can get to go when we are is that I helped out and did extra days when Ofsted came,so they owe me ;)

    Aww thanks for your kind comments, glad you're enjoying it :goodvibes

    Yeah we are still deciding whether to go ahead with August for our DFTW or half term week in October (providing OH can get some extended leave) - we enjoyed October that much, that I would prefer to have it in October over August! ::yes::

    I've been reading your wedding TR and it all sounds amazing, and you all looked so beautiful and happy :lovestruc

    Aw, thanks! One day (probably when I retire) I'll finish the TR!

    I spok to my BIL last night who was at our wedding and then in WDW last October, and he found it much more humid in October ~ now I'm wondering whether to stock up on shorts or jeans for the boys... :confused3

    It was alot hotter last year than the year before, we flew two weeks later last year and we prepared for colder weather like we had in 2011 and it was warm, i even got a sun tan :-)

    I would prepare for all weather

    Great news on the flights. :)

    I think that is the most ADRs I've ever seen! One every other day is too much for us! Will you have any park time left? Lol.

    Definitely worth you getting a free DDP deal and probably upgrading to DxDDP.

    I'm glad you never saw our ADRs for our DFTW ;)

    These are just our first ideas, but we're getting at TIW card with my AP again, that worked so well last time. ::yes::

    Well, we went for the cheapest flight days since the difference in flight price was pretty equal to the cost ot staying the extra days at AoA. So sad we leave as you arrive :(
