    I don't know about all of you, but at some point each Saturday Jack and I plan our holiday for if we win the lottery. :lmao:

    How would yours unfold?

    We'd wait until October (quiet season, and we could then be close enough to our wedding to do the cake/menu tasting). I'm sure I'd fit in a few days a DLRP (Castle Club) to get a Disney fix though.

    VA UC flight to MCO.

    1 week at Poly Club Level MK View ( we want to save GF for the wedding - why I'm realistic about it I don't know! :laughing:)

    First Class flight to Vegas for 3 nights, staying at the Bellagio (Lake View suite)

    Flight to LAX, 4 nights at the Grand Californian so I could see World of Color :lovestruc in real life.

    Flight to Tokyo, 4 days in the city and 4 at TDL, 2 nights in the DLH and 2 in the Miracosta.

    Flight to Hong Kong, 3 nights in the city and 2 nights at the DLH.

    Home again via Dubai for 4 nights at Al Qasr.

    UC direct flights

    1 week at POP (I know it's a value, but it looks fun and I would love to try it)
    10 days Club Level at the Poly
    4 days at the Contemporary

    A day at Sea World
    A trip to KSC
    La Nouba
    A SERIOUS shopping trip (1 day will do - I dont fiddle around :rotfl2:)

    And I would LOVE it if every evening/day at a TS meal I could glance around the room, pick a couple/group/family and when we leave, point them out and pay their bill and tip .... and then disappear before they ever know who did it.

    I know it is simple but no matter how much money you have, it's often the simple things that mean the most, usually becasue I have dreamed about them for so long. :)

    So would I, lol, but if I had done it before DD was born it would have been a blast so I think, Torsie, if your lottery nos come up, go for it while you can. :thumbsup2 ;)

    We would be on the next plane to MCO - highest class possible of course - and would spend the maximum we were allowed to in the country looking for our perfect villa, preferably with a second one nearby for friends and family.
    Obviously we would be spending a lot of time doing the parks, shopping for the villas and generally just chilling out.
    And I would bet that when the day comes to catch a flight back to the UK it's still too soon to go home - and we still haven't done everything we planned to :thumbsup2

    Maybe I'm odd, but I would hate for someone to do that for me - far too embarressing.

    Anyway, I think I'd like my holiday to be a month visiting all the major European capital cities followed by a fortnight at the Beach Club.

    :rotfl2: I love it. I always have the round the world Disney trip on standby for if I ever win.

    Mine would add a few extras.

    Firstly I would purchased about 600 DVC points for BLT and AKL for future trips. Then I would fly (Business Class of course) to NYC for a quick shopping trip & do the *** and City tour that I missed, then WDW 7 nights AKL, 7 nights BC and 7 nights GF, onto to SFO for a few days in the Fairmont and a trip up to the Napa Valley followed by 7 nights at Disneyland Grand Californian, onto Hawaii (Lost fan), liking your Tokyo and Hong Kong Choices, then onto Singapore for a few days, come back via Paris for a stay at the Disneyland Hotel and a few nights in the city then back home, hopefully with some change to buy my prefect little Georgian double fronted county home with a walled garden!

    I'd buy myself a villa that was big enough for all my family and close friends, we would fly business first and then do what ever we wanted for as long as we were allowed to stay. I would also like to go and stay in every Disney hotel for just one night to see what they are like.

    :) Awesome plans everyone.

    Reid - I think it would be pretty tiring, but the 4 days at Dubai would jsut be relaxing, and TBH I'd probably only pop home for a couple of weeks, (wouldn't need to work) and then might fly out for a Disney Cruise and a Carribbean relax! ;)

    I'd get the first avaiable flight out of Manchester, even if it meant going in cattle class.

    Once there book myself into the Boardwalk with a water view, and then take myself off over to Reuion to see if they had any of those fab villas for sale.

    Then once said villa purchased book myself in a really nice cabin on a cruise ship and go off around the Caribean, whilst my new villa was being re-styled.

    Also make sure that the ship goes to Antigua so I can call in at Emerald City and purchase myself a big fat diamond ring, that I have always wanted.

    I'd buy as many DVC points as I was allowed and keep enough money in reserve to do the next 10 pod cast cruises!! :thumbsup2
