    This is a first, me doing a pre-trippie :)

    OK, as usual there will be me ......... Wendy and DH .......... Chris.

    All I have done is finally booked the flights. I am amazed that there were still some flying club seats left at this late stage. I managed to use miles and upgrade vouchers and I got 2 premium economy seats for £477.52 :207: :207: If they hadn't been available we wouldn't have been going anywhere this year so as you can imagine I am really really happy :wiggle: :wiggle:

    We are going on the 21st September and won't be home until 12th October :happybounce:

    The things I need to do asap are:

    Book the Hilton for the night before.

    Book flights from Gatwick to Plymouth on the 12th October.

    Find somewhere to stay - I'm not 100% sure what we will do yet, Chris would really like to go down to the Keys for a while, so I'm thinking maybe stay at a villa or possibly onsite for a week, go down to Keys and Everglades for a while and then back to a villa.

    Book the rental car.

    Already got annual insurance.

    We have annual passes so we don't need Disney tickets.

    I can't think of anything else - any ideas :D

    Oooooooh! What fun--planning another trip! :D

    What about a split stay? Part of the time on site (think free dining), then switch to a villa and visit other areas.

    I was thinking about a split stay Taja, it would depend on the cost though, but I will look into it.

    I want to make this one different and a bit special, Chris is 50 in a few weeks and we weren't able to do what he wanted for his birthday :sigh:

    Hmmmmm, you could drive to Ft. Myers and take the high speed catamaran to the Keys. :yes: :D :D That would save a bit of the drive (and whoooooeeee, it's a long drive). Not sure how you'd feel about that, and if you wanted to stay a bit more than overnight, it might not be the best option. :unsure:

    Sounds like your holiday is off to a good start though. :yes:
