    Wow, looks great! Can I come along!

    I really like your plan of eating early and then late. Gives everyone enough time to be ready for the big dinner. With a snack or something light in between.

    :wave: Wow, what a trip!How does being away from school for that long work out? Do you have a break around then? I always wondered if the Uk was on more of a trimester schedule? I know your summer break starts later than ours. We're usually out at the end of June til the first Wednesday in September.

    The term starts the beginning of September through till Christmas, with 1 week off in October (Half Term). Our trip is one week either side of the half term so we are taking him out of school for a total of 10 days, which is allowed with prior consent from the school.

    Thats fantastic!! All your ressies look great, will this be DS's first trip? We will take our DS out of school for 4 days this Sept. as well to go down. He is entering 7th grade here and will probably be one of the last times we will be able to do so. High School will start in two more years. Our schools would have a fit for 10 days but I think family trips are almost as important!! So much to learn and the memories these trips yield are priceless!!!:yes:

    This is both our kids first trip. DS has been to Disneyland Paris 4 times & DD who will be 3 when we go has been to Disneyland Paris once.

    My wife and I have both been twice before only once together though but our last trip was 9 years ago, so we all can't wait :yes:

    I think kids learn and lot through experiencing different places, and it is important to spend quality time as a family. We are going to get him to keep a diary whilst we are there, a trip report of sorts, so he will have something to show his school when he gets back. I might even publish it on here :thumbsup:

    I paid the balance on the cruise today!

    I also managed to change our dinner from 2nd to 1st sitting due to a cancellation, which is great news. I'm not sure how our kids would have coped not eating untill late but it was all that was available at the time of booking.

    Today I have paid the final balance with Virgin!!

    Yesterday we decided to blow the budget further & (after a text from Lisaw confirming how good it was) we have booked the Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage for November 1st.

    I have updated the itinery on the first page to show the current activities!!

    So, all that is left is:

    Buy our 21 day Disney passes (still getting best prices)
    Space Centre passes (currently childrenn go free :thumbsup:)
    Book the Photoshoot at the Grand Floridian for November 3rd (Hopefully)

    I am officially very very excited. We are going back to Disney World after 9 years away!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, you do have such a fantastic itinerary but after 9 years, you deserve it :yes: So much will have changed! It will be like looking at it through a newbies eyes :thumbsup:
    Simon, do you know if you pay for your photoshoot at the time of booking or on the actual day? Also, does the price include the actual photographer or just the photos?

    I just posted this on the other thread, but here it is as well:

    As far as I can tell the $99.95 is for the photoshoot a set of photos (from the options available) + all the photos taken on a cd.

    I would think you pay at time of booking with the usual 48 hour cancellation window.

    The bit that confuses me is the discounts if you have pre-ordered a photopass cd for the parks!

    I was thinking maybe the poly for the beach. I'm not familiar with the resorts so it's hard to choose.
