I've spent the last year planning our next trip to the land of The Mouse; as last year was the 1st in ages we didn't holiday in Florida. Now I'm at the 'nothing left to plan' stage I was wondering what to do with my spare time, so I thought I'd write a Pre Trip Report as I'm determined to write a live trip report this year. I always enjoy reading others so I hope you'll enjoy mine . Anyway in October this year we are going on holiday with the dear friends who have holidayed in Florida for over 20 years, and gave us loads of advise and introduced us to 'The Brit Guide' etc for our 'Once in a Lifetime' trip back in 2001. You know the rest; like a lot of other people we enjoyed it so much we just kept going back. It'll probably be our last big family holiday for a while as DS is now 19 & DD will be 17 when we go, so not sure how much longer they'll want to holiday with Mum & Dad, or for that matter when we'll next afford at, as by next year we'll have them both at Uni (if exams go well etc). I'll introduce you to the crew; Myself, Shazzie B Forty something! DH, Gaz Forty something too -and it has to be stressed older than me DS, Alex 19 & DD, Tori 16 (17 when we go) Our dear friends Baz, he wouldn't like me to disclose his age Jacq, younger than Baz!!! And their children Alex, Rachael, Carl & James. Rachel's BF Tiz & Carl's GF Alex (yes 3 Alexs) All in their 20s/early 30s. So quite a crowd, but 12s a good number, splits nicely into pairs, threes & fours for sitting on rides So after we decided that October 2012 would be the date, the planning commenced.
