    Thanks for the heads up on the hotel parking. I always think that's REALLY cheeky to charge people who are staying there but still

    Citywalk is lots of fun. Definitely go to the dueling pianos at Pat O'Brians!
    yep, one of our favourite places especially 2 for 1 hurricanes

    Sadly, the hotel parking charge is commonplace in larger cities :-( Don't go to DC and try to park!

    I remember years ago going to Atlanta and the hotel charged parking. The lady checking in in front of us was shocked! She kept saying, "oh lawdy" in a very Southern accent. It was only $10 a night which I thought was pretty cheap lol.

    I like not just being in a hotel room, own bedroom, washing machine, being able to cook if you want

    After all the busy days at the parks it may be best to do your villa stay at the end of your trip, that's what we tend to advise our guests to do (but they are not a seasoned Florida visitor as you are :-) )

    I would have a few days in the middle, you only need to take a small amount with you and if you forget something g you can go back to the villa and get it. What about having your anniversary at Disney and then going back to the villa afterwards. You could stay at the Wilderness Lodge and it would be close to MK and V & A and it would also be romantic for your anniversary

    I wouldn't go at the end, I like the lazy day at the villa before we go to the airport

    I would definitely do it at the end, a bit of Disney magic to leave you on a high before returning home.

    So what are you going to do

    I mean you used to be indecisive but now you can't make your mind up

    I dont know if it's maybe that I could possibly be indecisive, but it could just be that I can't make my mind up. Perhaps.

    I think I'm going to do a few nights at the contemporary in the middle so I can go out on the balcony overnight and watch the castle. I can walk over to the mk to do the party night then

    Sounds like a good idea and you will enjoy sitting on the balcony. Will you make the reservation now so that you have got the extra 10 days for Be Our Guest?

    yeah everyone I've spoken to has said that reservations are already limited for that time for special ones like MK Views, so I'm going to grab a reservation now and try for BoG
