PDA

View Full Version : My pre-trippie

There is 6 of us flying from England, which includes my:
Dad, Paul- 50 something:d:, this will be his 3rd trip to Florida.
Mum, Kerry-Nearly 50 something:pgig:, this will be her 3rd trip to Florida.
Lil bruv, Sam- 19 going on 6? This will be his 3rd trip to Florida.
Lil sis, Elizabeth- 7 going on 16? This will be her 2nd trip to Florida.
Son, Aston- 8.5 months at the mo but will be 1 while in Florida:spin:, this will be his 1st trip to Florida.
And me, Laura- 21 the age i will stay forever (although I have been wishing that at the ages 16,17,18,19 and 20). This will be my 3rd trip to Florida

We are flying on the 21st of October from Bristol airport to New York, New York then onto Orlando, Should arrive at Florida 8-8.30pm all going well :thumbs-up then off in search of our villa.

We "DON'T DO PLANNING!" (as my dad would say) so we have no itinerary. A lot of you will probably find this scary as I have seen from various trip reports that many (if not most) people do plan, but the not planning way works for us as we find part of the fun is deciding what to do the day before or even that morning. The only plans we have made is ADR's which include:
Dinner at Crystal Palace
Dinner at Akershus
And we are hoping to have breakfast with Cat in the Hat, Spiderman and Thing 1&2.
The only other plans we have are to meet my mums cousin Claire and her mob, which we have had to plan as you all probably know Claire is the opposite to us and is a hyper planner :pgig:.

3 days after we arrive we have another party of 5 joining us which include my:
Uncle, Keith- age ?? (but he's young at heart:pgig:). This will be his 2nd trip to Florida.
Auntie, Angie- age??. This will be her 2nd trip to Florida.
Triplet Cousins- 4 (i think) Allison, Luke and Blake. This will be there 1st trip to Florida.

I better explain that this part of our clan live in Indianapolis, USA. We all met in Florida (with Aston and the triplets obviously not being born then) at christmas, my Auntie and Uncle were then trying for a baby. Not long after we got back from Florida we had a phone call explaining that they were not only expecting A baby but 3 all at once!! :spin:

So thats it all about us.

The only other thing that I actually have been planning is doing my sister and son a pack for on the plane to keep them entertained which include: Toys, books, colouring in things, card making kit, tinkerbell flask, winnie the pooh cup, masks etc. And a welcome pack for when they get there which will include, disney towel, disney wash mit, disney pjs, welcome cards from the mouse/princesses a personalised disney t-shirt and whatever else I can think of.

I am also printing a little card for each morning to put out for the kids that say 'have a good day' or something along them lines and signed by different characters.

Also for each character meal the kids are going to each have a personolised invitation and a personolised t-shirt to get the characters to sign so they have nice keepsakes at the end of the trip.

Thankyou for reading.

Hopefully when i get chance I will post some pics and keep you updated with what I find.

:hello1: So now I have all the T-shirts designed and invitations personalised and am just waiting on a very kind lady who is helping me out with som invitations for the character breakfast with Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 & 2 and Spiderman then off to print everything :thumbs_up:
My best friend has just come back of her suprise 21st holiday where her boyfriend whisked her off 2 Florida for 1 week and New York for a week (jelous, me??:diablo:). She bought me and Aston loads back. She bought a 'Pal Mickey' back for Aston (well thats what she thinks :t1408:), A Thing 1 bib and romper suit for Aston. A thing 3 T-shirt, Sponge Bob keyring and loads of sweets, and then a load of things from New York. She does tend to spoil me (I must deserve it,:p015:)
So now that shes back I can stop being jelous of her and start rubbing it in that its soon my turn to go to the place that seems to make an extremely mature person like me act like a big kid!!!
I am now officially excited!!!!:sigs-tv-010::smiley4::smiley3::sigs-cartoon-005:

So now Mum, being the worrier that she is has phoned the passport office to see what is going on with them and they said they were printed this morning and we will recieve them tomorrow or thursday so then i can get Astons done as we need to put my new passport number on his. Woo Hoo, we can actually get into the country!! :thumbs-up I'm hoping my passport picture isn't to bad this time as the 'chav' look isnt a good look anymore :pgig: Not that passport pics are ever very flattering. I bought Aston 2 pairs of shorts from Sainsburys for Florida, dont think i need anything else for him as i only want to take minimal luggage so I can fit in loads of clothes, toys, trainers and whatever else i purchase while there. Just need to sort clothes out for myself. :spin: Also i am loving my, i mean Astons Pal Mickey, it is soooo cute!!!! :smile:

So I have finally got my passport through. http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/Picture200.jpg Now just to sort Astons out. Me and Mum (aka nannav) have looked at all the things we got for Elizabeth and Aston. Near enough all of Elizabeths bits are sorted. This is what we have got her for the journey. http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/Picture190.jpg This is what we got her for her welcome pack with the passport all thanks to Claire. http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/Picture192.jpg Just got to sort her personalised T-shirt printed and add some more bits that me and Mum need to get some bits from Wallmart as soon as we get there. Also these are the clothes she has for the holiday. http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/Picture197.jpgAnd this is what we got Aston for the journey, need to add more stuff. http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/Picture194.jpg And some bits we have got for Astons welcome back, with Pal Mickey and some bits also needing added. http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/Picture195.jpg And Astons holiday clothes http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/Picture196.jpg And a couple of bits for me :pgig: http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/Picture199.jpg Oh yeh, our countdown is going well http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/Picture193.jpg I think Elizabeth is excited. http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/Picture016-1.jpg And Aston!! http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/Picture001.jpg

So now mum has definately booked the car and some dollars are on the way, the villa balance has been sent. Astons passport form has been sent with 2 copies of 2 different pics in the hope that one of them will be Ok for the passport.(do you realise how hard it is to take a pic of a 9 and a half month old for a passport??:erm:)One of my friends (if she can be called that, we dont seem to get on) Is going on hol soon and keeps trying to show off to me, but with the chance of sounding a tad childish: I dont care coz im going to Florida so there:pgig: I have a feeling that I am doing everyones head in talking about Florida, my boss has told me to shut up on numerous occasions now(RUDE:d:) And my best friend who has come back from her florida/new york trip a few weeks ago keeps saying how jelous she is, although i was jelous when she went so it is her turn. I went to an Ann Summers party last night and spent the hole time talking Disney to anyone who would listen(or even anyone who wouldnt), Disney and Ann Summers doesnt exactly mix!! :pgig: Hopefully me and mum will be going to Staples on Friday to print some of the things i got off and will post pics. Speak soon. xxx

21-08-2008, 12:31 PM
So me and mum went to sainsburys the other day and it was 25% off all clothes, who are we to miss a bargain like that?? We bought a pair of joggers each, mum in army green and me in black and aston 2 pairs of joggers, navy blue and pale blue. So we have our bottoms sorted for the journey as joggers will be a lot more comfy than wearing jeans, is that sad that we have planned our outfits for the journey?? Oh well. Tomorrow i am hoping that we will be going to staples to print of a load of our invitations etc. Fingers crossed i will be able to post pics of them aswell. xx

Now mum has booked the park tickets. I have been looking through all mine and Astons things for Florida and all we need is a sleeping bag for Aston and some new PJs for me. Then just to book Photopass closer to the time and thats it. Mum phoned continental the other day and we found out I acn take Astons car seat and pushchair, also Aston gets a allowance for 1 suitcase so between us we can take 3 so i will be taking 1 inside the other on the way there and if we need extra for all of our stuff i can buy a holdall while we are there. 7 WEEKS TODAY!!!!!!!!!

We've don our t-shirts!!!! Well minus 2 anyway.
We got the Mickey Mouse and gang ones done for the 'Welcome to Disney' packs. Just havent done Luke and Blakes as theres are going on red t-shirts so need to be done in the dark transfer paper.
http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/DSCF1495.jpg

The ones for the breakfast with Cat in the Hat, Thing 1& 2 and Spiderman but only for Aston and Elizabeth as the others wont be with us then. http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/DSCF1497.jpg The ones for the meal at Crystal Palace with Pooh Bear and friends which will be on the table in the morning with the kids invites to the meal. http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/DSCF1496.jpg The ones for the meal at Akershus with the Princesses although we did Lightening Mcqueen and Buzz Lightyear on Blake and Lukes as we didnt think they would appreciate having princesses on there t-shirts, and i didnt fancy walking around Epcot with 2 nancys with princesses on there t-shirts. :pgig: http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/DSCF1498.jpg And Astons birthday t-shirt which he will be wearing to the princess meal as its his birthday that day. Front http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/DSCF1499.jpg Back http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd340/lauraemmav21/DSCF1500.jpg All the t-shirts for the character meals will be signed by the characters so the t-shirts can be keepsakes for the kids. :spin:

There is so much that i would have loved to do for this trip but i want to take the absolute minimum with me so i can buy loads while i am there. :grin:

I had work last night so didnt get to bed till gone 12, as i was lying in bed i almost dozed off then all of a sudden i just thought, i got 1 week and 6 days till the day i go to florida, its actually under 2 weeks till we go! it was like a bolt of lightening, its been 5 years since we last went and now its less than 2 weeks before we go, its come round so quickly. :mickeybou That was it though, i couldnt get back to sleep till 3am and Aston is up at 7am every morning on the dot. :zzz:
All i was thinking about was is Aston gunna be scared of the characters? :confused2 Will i be to scared to go on the tower of terror? :erm: I mean i love this ride, i love all rides but i went to alton towers a few months back and while waiting in the queue for oblivion i was almost crying where i was so scared, although i loved it when i was on it, its just the getting on thats the scary part. Will aston be a nightmare on the 12 hour flight? :cry: Will we make our connecting flight? :erm: At least if we dont we can look around all the shops at Newark and i can say we have been shopping in New York. :pgig:Will i have enough spending money?
Oh well, it 13 days till we go so theres no turning back now. :thumbs-up

OMG, In one week today, I will be at the airport probably feeling sooooo excited, I will be close to being sick (not that I'm far off that now!!) :omg: . I was hoping this week will just be a week of relaxing and getting a load of early nights in, as I only have a shift tonight and thursday night left at work, but Aston has a really nasty cough so although I am getting an early night I am up twice with him so I am absolutely cream crackered :zzz: with a bit of luck he will be getting better by the end of the week!! So this week we have to get ourselves backpacks for our hand luggage on the plane, finish the last two t-shirts we have to make and pack!!!!! :grin:

Being that in a weeks time WE WILL BE IN FLORIDA!!! We thought we better start getting organised so today we got our backpacks for our hand luggage in the airport.
This is Mums, she got a boring one as had to be sensible and get one which dad would actually carry round the parks.

And this is mine.

LOVE THEM!!!!! I got the Black tigger one to use for all Aaron's bits and pieces for the flight -but will use it as a nappy bag as well for the parks!

If I had got away with it I would have bought the Piglet or Eeyore one!!:p015:

Thankyou all for Astons birthday wishes it was a good party and Aston really enjoyed it, although me and Barry were up untill 3.30am the next morning, not sure whether it was the angel delight that made him hyper or just all the excitement.


So tomorrow is the day we are off to florida, I have wrote my 'To-Do' list which is actually quite long so I have a busy day!! Its getting so close now I am really starting to feel sick!!!!
