Im stil trying to understand the rules
If I read the CDC page, it mentions 7 day quarantine on arrival
As clear as mud !!
The only reference that I can see on the CDC website for 7 day quarantine is if you are not fully vaccinated but are allowed to travel to USA by air through an exception.
For fully vaccinated it's proof of vaccination and the pre-departure test, no quarantine required.
Don't know which web page you're looking on but this one clearly displays the requirements.
Yeah not clear for children. Think the wording is "recommended" rather than required. Doesn't put much confidence in parents flying over with kids this month though.But this sounds like it would apply to children under 18 as they're travelling as an exception. Does this really mean that children need to quarantine a week after arrival? If so it's going to be pretty unlikely people will travel to Disney only to lose a week.
Sort of.I know the CDC is the king pin in all of this
Not really a surprise, but at least it's official:

I agree, but I am always hesitant about adding another flight and extra chance of delay or cancellation into the equation.best way to go to USA and avoid the chaos is through Dublin and the US Preclearance. Everything sorted in Dublin airport and arrive in USA as a domestic passenger and just go straight to bag carousels.
I'm thinking about going via Dublin next year. But as these flights are usually in the morning, and you are supposed to arrive 3 hours before, I always stay at a local hotel the night before anyway, so any pre-trans-Atlantic transport delays have a big buffer.I agree, but I am always hesitant about adding another flight and extra chance of delay or cancellation into the equation.
Im hoping that booking for 16 nights rather than 14 makes the Holiday smoother for us the extra 2 days are travel daysI'm thinking about going via Dublin next year.

It's extra cost, but more or less eliminates the worry of losing a day or more of the holiday, or even having to hurry, if things don't go smoothly.
Of course, since I've been doing this everything has gone like clockwork
There's been loads of talk about the app showing your full name on a few forums I'm on and although people say their middle name shows, you'll normally find it's because they are not viewing it on the main NHS vaccine "page". If you click "More" (top right once logged into the app) - "manage NHS login account" - it displays your full name there.I got the GP surgery to add my middle name to my records a couple of weeks ago now. She said it actually had my middle initial there already, but filled it out. As the NHS app and my covid certificate had not shown my middle initial either I was not convinced they would now show the name.
Having given it a couple of weeks I checked yesterday and ... no middle name.
So it looks like the system simply doesn't display middle names, in which case it will apply to everyone in England (the other countries' in the UK may be different). It'll be interesting to see how this works tomorrow.
