    We are back after 10 days WDW, 1 day Universal and 4 days Miami. And we had the two best weeks of our life.

    Here are a few highlights of the endless highlights of this trip:

    Wishes (I have never seen this before, not in 18 DLRP visits)
    Our short visit and our dinner at the Grand Floridian (I had tears in my eyes when I walked in to the lobby. I never thought there could be a hotel more beautiful than my beloved DLH. Next time we will stay there and if I will only eat bread afterwards.)
    My rendezvous with Ariel and Belle.
    Philharmagic (If I could have one attraction of WDW in DLRP it would be this one. 101% perfect, 101% Disney. I had once again tears in my eyes.)

    But there are also four “downlights”.

    The heat, the heat, the heat and The heat. We have choosen October because it should not have been so hot. But then we had record temperatures. It has never been before so hot in October. The last record was set in 1961. It is not easy to spend the days in the parks only thinking about where to escape the heat and where to go next. And we always had keep in mind if this is something outside or inside. Worst was AK because almost everything there is outside.
    We once had a similar experience in DLRP when it was so cold in January. But from now on I will never complain again about cold days at DLRP.

    We were a little dissapointed with the Port Orleans Riverside. Both our rooms (Magnolia Section) looked as if no one has been in there for month. We had several spiderwebs on the walls, dust everywere, M&M’s on the carpet for days. We were more satisfied with the All Star Music were we stayed the first two nights.

    But this is the only thing in 10 days WDW that comes to my mind when I thing about negative experiences. Beside this everything was perfect. This was a 100% perfect vacation.

    I will do a trip report and show more pictures soon.

    I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself. :goodvibes

    I was there in September so I know what you mean about the heat, it was often unbearable. Very different to DLRP eh?! :rotfl: I agree with what you said about Philharmagic, I absolutely love it and I feel quite emotional every time I see it. Don't even get me started on Wishes, you should have seen DBF and I after watching it on our last night: :sad1::sad1::sad1: :laughing:

    It's a shame about the state of your rooms in POR. Did you not complain?

    Sounds like you had a fab trip! Were you on the Lufthansa flight last night? If so I was probably sat near you in departures?!

    Yes we were on the Lufthasa flight but on Monday evening 7:55.


    And yes we did complain regarding the dust in the room and the promised they would take special care of our two rooms the next day but everything was still the same. And so we dusted the room ourself. :rolleyes:

    Where did you stay in Miami?

    I would have complained about the room at Port Orleans, that's not good enough for the prices they charge.

    Welcome back. Pleased that the highs outweighed the lows.
    We are here now and although the heat is high I am finding that it is the humidity that is the worse. I am having to try and choose tops that won't show up any wet patches on photos :rotfl2:

    spray yourself with water before you take a photo, that way you won't see the wet patches. I like to help ;-) :thumbsup2

    In Miami we stayed at the Best Western Atlantic Beach Resort.

    And yes the trip was more than perfect.

    I am going right now through my 1400 pictures and then I will show 1000 to the DIS. :rotfl2:
