I have never done a pre-trip report before but with just 3 months to go until our first ever visit I thought it was about time I got my finger out and started one. Cast Me, 37 Disney mad, completely obsessed with looking at holidays even though I cant afford to book any of them. DD 18 Has been to DLP once, very sensible, (no idea where she gets that from) has her head well and truly screwed on. Now just cant wait to get there after her first year at Uni. DD 14... (will be 15 whilst we are there) Mmmm, complete fruit loop springs to mind, can be a bit of a scatter brain and very easily led. Been to DLP 3 times soon to be 4, will not go anywhere without her sack of make-up and hair straightners. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to go to WDW, when I was a child I only ever got as far as Pontins. Anyone who went abroad was super rich as far as I was concerned. I used to beg my parents to take me and my Sister to Butlins, people who went there were seen as really cool, but it was all in vain. The first time my girls ever went abroad was when they were 8 and 12, quite late really. They never moaned though even when all their friends were heading off to exotic places and they had to make do with Clacton-On-Sea (not that there is anything wrong with Clacton i would like to add) In fact my youngest used to think the term "abroad" was an actual country and wouldn't hear otherwise. I never ever thought I would be able to afford to go to WDW on my pittance of a wage, i remember looking at pictures when they were building Expedition Everest thinking i would never get to see it, but here we are going in just 3 months. To cut a long story short my Dad died a few years ago and the money he left me I invested, last year I had the choice to re-invest or do something with it. I choose to put the money towards this holiday, I am sure he would have approved. We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside and have the free dining so I have spent weeks and weeks finalising where we are going to eat. I can book my ADRs this coming Thursday although without park hours my plans could amount to nothing. I still have to buy park tickets to Universal and SeaWorld and hope to do that within the next few weeks. Here is our itinerary so far, if anyone has any comments or advice I would appreciate it. Day 1 Depart Gatwick at 11.55am Arrive MCO 15.25pm Transfer by Magical Express to Port Orleans Hopefully grab some dinner at the Rainforest Café in Downtown Disney. I was going to book an ADR for around 8pm but I am not too sure if that is wise. Day 2 Animal Kingdom Lunch at Yak and Yeti, watch the parade and then probably head back to the hotel. Day 3 Magic Kingdom for the whole day (hopefully) Lunch or dinner at either the Liberty Tree tavern or Plaza restaurant. Watch the parade and wishes if it is on.
