So pleased you have an extra week. We did 3 weeks once and loved it, found it more relaxing as we had quieter days.
Gutted and shocked for you Louise, no other wordsWow I cant believe I was so excited just a few hours ago.
We have some hard decisions to make now as the company we have ordered our travel money from looks to have gone bankrupt and with it turns out there is no way we can get our money back. I sent them everything we had saved for spending money and after paying all our balances just yesterday my bank account is running on empty. I am in shock I cant believe this is happening to us.
We are putting kids to bed now and tehn we will try to work out how much money we need o get by and also if its even feasible for us to getthat money in the 7 weeks before we go
This trip was suppose to be so special and now it looks like we may have to cancel everything extra or that we have not paid for !!
Im especially gutted as it looks like I have to cancel my surprise for wayne and the kids as we can no longer afford to do it - really could sit and cry my eyes out
Weve eaten @ the grand floridian buffet a few times and love it there, cinderella and the prince do a dance and theres the fairy godmother and the mice, i actually prefer this to the castle better character interaction. xOk so my last post was quite fankly depressing and we are after all planning a trip to the happiest place on earth so that cant be right can it ??
After the intial shock and some fantastic friends have helped us out we are now looking to make the most of a bad situation !! After peaking to the kids it was clear that there are just a couple of things they have set their hearts on
1) Harry Potter wands
2) Breakfast with Stitch
3) See cinderellas castle (Keira is obssessed )
Once in Florida Im sure my kids will not not care less if we eat in or out of the villa and I think I can hardly call it cooking if we are playing by the pool waiting for it to cook can I??
Changes to our plans have obviously happened we have cancelled Cinderellas royal table and the wishes dessert party both of which I dont feel will make a difference to our holiday !
I have booked the Grand Floridian cinderella dinner for our last week so if we still have money we can go and find cinders still for keira but if we are sailing close to the wind we can cancel and by then we will hopfully have found cinders in the parks for her hence easing my guilt!!
I have also changed the playhouse disney breakfast to just me and Keira as the boys are so not going to be interested - I did toy with the idea of cancelling it but Keira loves playhouse disney and Im sure by our next trip she will have outgrown it so its a now or never !!
I still have not cancelled HRH as im waiting to see if I can still get away with going through with my plan. My reluctance is due to the kids definatly wanting to see Harry Potter area ! As part of our booking for Hrh we have breakfast at the 3 broomsticks booked and I do believe that if we dont do this we will regret it !!
I have 2 weeks left to either cancel or pay the remaining balance so will make my decison at the last minute when i know if it is realistic or not !
So we are off to the happiest place on earth and we are going to be smiling for 3 weeks. We have been through far worse and like I say we have learnt this week that we have the most amazing friends and that is far more important than any amount of money x xx
