    Hi all

    Well we are back after a most magical trip to Florida and i thought you might like a few of our highs and lows. I will do a trippy at some point in the near future and add some piccys for those that might be interested.

    Highs

    Virgin Atlantic from LGW to MCO and back again! left bang on time both flights and got us into LGW this morning 1/2 an hour early Fantastic service from the cabin crew both ways decent food (By airline standards)
    can't praise them enough.

    Disney's Beach Club Wow! what a resort, it has fantastic pool (Stormalong Bay) A great beach overlooking Disney's boardwalk (5mins walk) 10 mins stroll to Epcot 5 mins stroll to boat to Disney's Hollywood studios which takes 25 mins.

    Disney movies on the beach every evening great for kids (and adults too!)

    Getting a free upgrade to concierge level at Disney's Beach club with a water/Spaceship Earth view because it was our 12th wedding anniversary.
    the free food and drinks in the Stone Harbour Club were really good. (More on that in the trippie)

    There are lots of other things about the Beach club that are fantastic but i will add those to my trippy.

    The Disney dining plan is so worth the money it is more food than we could eat and the snack portion can be used in the shops for certain items up to the value of $4 (eg. Pez dispensers or boxes of character cookies)

    Expedition Everest Just WOW

    Lots of other things too many to mention here

    Lows

    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party! It poured with rain all day and Disney should have cancelled it an gave us a refund or a credit note for another night of our choice but no we all had to stand around waiting for stage shows that never happend and parades and fireworks that were 1/2 an hour late trying to fit them in between the rain storms. We left the park at 10 past 10 soaked to the skin and at $56 each it was a little hard to swallow. To be honest i am not sure it is good value for money rain or no rain i don't think we would do it again.

    The prices have gone up so much since we were last there i know it it the same everywhere but we did notice a real hike this time.


    Not much else really. Can't wait to get back

    Thanks for reading

    I agree with all you said about Beach Club. It's hard to beat isn't it. Did you happen to partake in the "Kitchen Sink" at Beaches 'n Cream??

    I hate your Xmas party experience was so bad because honestly if you hadn't had the rain I think you would have loved it. We've done the Xmas party a few times & always left feeling very happy. I do admit, the admission to these are getting a little steep sadly.
