    As some of you know,we have had a rather tough year for one reason or another, so we had earlier in the year cancelled a trip to florida and had firmly set our sights on returning next year.

    Well hubby and I set about pricing different holidays around the uk and we couldnt belive the price for our family of 5 to various uk holiday homes etc.
    So we hatched a plan, we took on extra Jobs and saved every penny we could find for the last 6 months. We had nothing to loose, as if we couldnt
    manage it this year the money would go to next years holiday.

    Well the great news is we have done it we are all booked and Paid and ready to go and all within budget :dance3::dance3::dance3:

    (as a side note, I would just like to say a huge thankyou to all my Dis friends for you have all truly helped me keep my sanity this year :hug:)


    Here is our rough plan so far, as for this holiday has not had much time for planning. I am really thrilled with the adrs we have the cast member I spoke to was so very helpful :goodvibes

    22nd August flying with virgin to Miami arrive around 3.15 we haved decide wether we will stay here tonight or drive to orlando tonight we have a hotel booked for each and will decide on the day depending on how tired we are etc

    23rd August not sure what we are doing today but we will be staying at holiday inn orange lake resort this night is free as hubby collects a lot of loyalty points with his job every week:)

    24th August we are checking into Saratoga springs with free dining :dance3:
    have an adr for Dinner Chef De France

    25th Aug Dinner Liberty tree tavern

    26th August Lunch yak and yetti

    27th Aug Lunch Coral Reef

    28th Aug Breakfast Ohanas

    29th Aug Dinner San Angel

    30th Aug Dinner Raglan Road

    31st Aug dinner chef Mickeys

    1 Septr Drive back to miami flight 19.05

    2 septarrive back heathrow 08.45

    I cant wait to make more memories like this

    Oh sounds like a great trip planned :)

    The only thing is the first night if you do not cancel within a reasonable time do you not lose the money?

    Claire ;)

    Hi, Last year 5 days before our holiday my eldest Son broke his arm in two places so holiday had to be rearranged, my son ended up with a few ops and a metal plate inserted in his arm and we are still taking him to the hospital 1 year later :headache:

    I am really hoping none of my boys put in a repeat performance :upsidedow
