    well we've been back a few days from disney and im missing it already. its even worse as weve no plans to go again for a long time. As it was we plan to go every 5years but the next time will be just before sons GCSE years so we would delay to avoid him missing school.
    mind you im going to visit my brother in OZ next year, may stop off at a Disney along the way. just not sure yet.
    its taking me a while to get back to normal. got ill while away, so taken me longer than expected.
    We stayed at the Contemporary Resort :cloud9:

    we had a fab time and only came home with $8 (cutting it a bit close) :lmao:

    my highs=
    1.Cirque de soleil...fab fab fab!
    2.Coral reef meal...was delishious
    3.using Dis tips to try new Do'h bar, yum yum

    sure theres loads more :)

    my lows=
    1.dont really want to mention this as it didnt spoil the holiday but the rain, didnt really stop us doing anything but got wet a lot and i got ill.
    2. monorail system- kept breaking down or having to wait at stations for ages due to 'traffic'. it wasnt as easy as itd been before, journeys were taking over 3 times as long as they did when working.
    3. universal transfers- last time we went we brought transfers to universal from Virgin with Mears. did the same again, got our own cab in the morning. in the evening it was a bus,wasnt expecting that as had cabs before. after it stopped at all the other hotels took about 1hour 30, time loss from our holiday.
    4. Kennedy transfer- just noticed the lows are mainly transport related lol
    we paid for transfers with our Kennedy trip, but when we rang the day before our trip to confirm. we were told to be at Downtown at 6.45, they wouldnt pick us up from had to pay for cab as no buses running. what made it worse was that they picked up loads others after we'd got on at Downtown.

    Despite everything it was a fab holiday and i may just think about hiding some money away and hoping to book something earlier. may just go at a different time of year to fit in around school. just had a thought of around Christmas! is it any good? will have to do some research.........

    ive uploaded pics on Facebook, took forever as it kept failing on me.
    will prob do a trip report and write about some of the yummy food.
    i did gain 8lbs but already lost 3lbs. :woohoo:

    thank you to everyone on here as although i knew a lot already, i found out a few extra hints and tips that helped

    thanks everyone, the travel wasnt too bad but meant we wasted a lot of time sitting on a coach or monorail. id rather be sitting on Splash mountain, mind you at one point i wasnt thinking that ;) it broke down on us, sat there for 30 mins till they closed it and took us off. :rotfl2:
