    We're booked - 9 nights next August at the Comfort Inn, Manhatten :bounce:

    Half paid for in Tesco Vouchers so feels quite sweet :D

    Now the mad planner in me is thinking this is the shortest time I have ever planned a trip - let alone somewhere I haven't been before :mental:

    So suggestions on must sees very welcome :hug2:

    OK I have seen Wicked and hope to go again and am about to see The Lion King for the third time :lol: I was thinking The Little Mermaid :unsure: not heard much about it though.

    Would I be able to get tickets when we are there or would I have to buy in advance?

    I thought I heard that the Little Mermaid was closing this past Aug??

    You can buy tickets the day of the show at the ticket booth in Times Square.

    However, if there is something you REALLY want to see, buy in advance.

    WOW! 9 nights in New york! That is so exciting, the good thing about your length of stay is that you should be able to do everything you want without rushing. I reckon 306 days is easily enough to plan New York, everything is so convinient so getting to and from places takes little to no planning, especially as most things you don't even have to book in advanced.

    Definatley ear-mark a day for eating lunch or dinner at a deli and a diner!
