    We're going again. :D

    First time since 2003 for a couple of reasons, 1. money, 2. we wanted Steven to see a bit of our own country so we've been down to Devon and Cornwall and done some day trips around the area. :thumbs_up:

    Anyway we're going back. After careful consideration we decided not to go during term time. If we took Steven out of school he would disown us - he likes school. So it's the school holidays for us. :)

    Which is why we still have to wait until 2010. If we're going in August we need loads of time to save up. :(

    So we have a date. August 14 2010 for 2 weeks. :D

    And now, we have a location. Here...

    www.disneypalmsvilla.com

    And we have a travelling party: Me, Adrian, Steven and Nanny Lesley.

    What no Big Steve, Lisa, Ellie and Harry???

    Well they are on the villa booking but they have currently decided that they do not want to go in August as it will be crowded. We said it's Disney and it's always crowded and there's way to deal with that. But right now they are saying they don't want to go in August. They may change their mind next week. Or we may ask Uncle Roy and Auntie Anne if they'd like to come with us. So there's 4 of us - in a 5 bedroom villa. Can you say paaaarrrrrrrttttyyyyyyy. :207:

    There are quite a few coincidences! We last went in 2003. We are going again in 2010. We're staying in a villa and that's all I can thing of at the moment.

    That villa looks lovely and that is a great area, the villa we stayed in the first two times we went was at the other end of Old Lake Wilson Rd and it is an easy drive to disney without lots of traffic :thumbs_up:

    Ya know if you made it a little later in the month then you'd probably have free dining too. OR you could still change it to when it's not so flipping hot in Florida!!

    Cool! That's what the villa owner told me when she sold the area to me.

    Nah, you know we like to get offsite and check out the (much cheaper) restaurants in the area. :D

    If you can persuade our government to change school term dates then we'll change our holiday dates. ;)

    Off site is good, but free is better

    Okay, so who in your government do I need to contact

    Free is good but we don't like to spend a lot of park time eating. And we already have a villa booked and if you look in the gallery for the villa you'll see we get our very own night time Shamu show in our private pool.

    OK this may get ***'d out but the Secretary of State for Education is one Ed Balls. :rofl:
