    What do I need to do now?

    I've got villa, flights, car.
    Park tickets will come in due course. We've decided no Universal this time. So it's Disney, a day at Sea World and a day at KSC.

    Passports are in the process of being renewed. None of us need visas.

    Travel insurance I'm about to buy.

    What else is there? It's all changed since 2003.

    There's all ESTAs and APIs and OLCIs and all sorts of other acronyms that I've never had to do before.

    I need to know what to put on my main list.

    make a rough guide of park days, rest days and other days. So when you come to buying tickets , booking meals you know what you need.

    A Disney Guide for Christmas is a wonderful gift. Years ago when Max was but a wee boy and came to us for the first time, for his first visit we bought him a Kid's Guide (among other things) for Christmas that year. It was a wonderful aid in helping him understand what WDW was all about and the many choices he had when visiting the parks.

    What else do you need? Well, in addition to decoding all those acronyms (which I can't help you with) you'll need to refresh your maps of the area, if you use maps, decide which non-Disney things you will be doing; those sorts of things.

    Dining offsite is more viable now than ever before, so you may want to research the places around the area (changes over the years you know). Perkins (didn't you like Perkins?) has been bought out by Bob Evans (the place with the divine sausage gravy and biscuits for breakfast ) so I'd imagine it would improve?

    There are several new places for dining near Millenia Mall, so you may want to explore there. Ceviche is now in downtown Orlando on Church St. Not sure if it's the best idea with children, but if Steven likes to try new things it may work for you.

    You have a wealth of research and exploring to do!!!!






    Welcome to our new home! It's a lovely and friendly place. If you haven't joined yet, do register. It's a great place to make friends and share all those Disney secrets!!

    I need places that do proper food for children - he loves sushi remember. The boy is weird.

    I need a serious quote for Nanny Lesley's travel insurance because she will be 65 and apparently that makes her a higher risk.

    I need to find the nearest Walmart to the villa. Though apparently Publix is nearer which will do for first night snacks and drinks.

    I need a Mapman map.

    I need to decide what to wear for having my passport photo done - it's going to be on public view for 10 years.

    I NEED A LIE DOWN!!!!
