    I am in disney trip planning mode today so I thought it be nice to share my thoughts and ideas with you all guys!

    Just a reminder that we going to WDW in Sept for two weeks and staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge flying from Gatwick on PE.

    We will be travelling first class to Gatwick and staying at Hilton once again. Will book airport lounge so can have a drink or two. (What I usually do is tell Stephen oops look what I have done, I thought I made double Jack Daniel with coke but somehow I must have poured too quickly so it triple not double silly me(!))

    There is one shop at Gatwick Airport that we will be making bee line to is Jo Malone we are huge fan of their products!

    Hopefully we will be at DTD at our first night which is a bit of traditional for us.

    We will be doing discovery cove once again as I fell in love with DC two years ago also will be going to Halloween do too. Yes will even dress up :wiggle:

    We will give Universal a miss but will pop over to the Florida Mall. Gutted that Yankee Candles have now gone to much of Stephen delight! I could spend hours there! One holiday I managed to bring back at least 20 tarts! Any new shops there?

    Looking forward seeing the test drive as not been on it since its opened. Will try out the dwarfs train and looking forward to TOT too!

    I am really looking forward to Starbucks! I am hoping to upgrade our dining plan to deluxe so we should have two snacks each. This will allow me to have a coffee every time I am there! So looking forward having a coffee and watching wishes!

    Have booked BOG which I am quite excited about. We are thinking of going to California Grill. This would replace Brown Derby. I was not overly impressed and the waiter was right snotty too!

    I am hoping to complete our ADR today :wiggle:

    Jeff if you love AKL half as much as we did, then I guess we will love it twice as much as you:rotfl:!

    Brilliant choice! AKL is awesome!

    I see you pack almost the exact same way Jon and I do :)

    Have had a bit of a google, since I wasn't familiar with Jo Malone...looks fab!

    :mental: :mental: Can't wait to hear what you have in mind!

    Well no wonder Stephen is glad it's gone!! He must have been quite jealous!!!!

    Ohhhhhh Jeff!!! We booked CG for our trip last September and it was quite lovely!! The view of the fireworks alone was worth it! You can read about it here.
