    It sounds really good Julie

    We're flying into Miami this time as well, a little worried but I'm sure it will be fine









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Wendy we did it about 10 years ago and it was fine. We usually have to drive for a few hours when we get to a US airport so no difference really and gives me a chance for a couple of nights by the sea

    Lol Bev, there will be lots of chilling I promise!


    Right....I've been fiddling

    Firstly upgraded the SUV to a full size one as we're 4 adults really and want to be comfy on our travels.

    Cancelled costa d'este at vero beach and used some loyalty points to just stay over night at a country inn and suites at vero beach, we'll just want to go to walmart get some stuff, eat and go to bed. Then the next morning we'll leave about 6am for Orlando where I've added another night at the Royal Pacific Hotel.

    Dining: due to Caitlin crying when we saw a video trip report of Cinderellas castle I have booked us both in for breakfast one morning. (shhh it's a secret)
    Also booked for us two to go to chef mickeys for breakfast
    And just now booked the dessert party in Magic Kingdom (no one knows about that!)

    Phew
