    So I am sitting at work, in all honesty bored out of my tree. I break up today today you see (ohh that rhymed, purhaps I should write this out as a poem?).

    So I thought I'd write another pre trippy and create a thread as a place to keep a log of my trip all in one place, assuming of course that is ok with the mods on here?

    So firstly, the name of our trip.

    These are the characters in which we shall be dressing up as on our MNSSHP night. I'll leave you to guess who I shall be going as ;)

    We are due to leave for the airport at around 11:30am tomorrow and we still haven't packed a thing. Not my choice as i've been given an order not to get within 5ft of the spare room.

    My job is simply to 'keep out of the way'.

    We plan to arrive around 3pm at Gatwick, park the car and check in to the hotel and also make use of the twilight check-in for Virgin.

    Our flight is 1pm the following day, so we can have a real lazy get up and roll to the gate for our flight.

    We should arrive around 5pm local time Saturday evening where we plan to go to the hotel check-in and go for a drive for something to eat (choice of eatery is between poderosa & the outback steakhouse).

    I'm hoping to update with pictures over the few weeks however it will all be dependant on the wifi as we won't be using our mobile's once we're there.

    Things I am looking forward to:

    - trying magic bands for the first time
    - seeing the resort
    - the new harry potter stuff
    - to try a dole whip for the first time
    - enjoy a relaxing day with Jess at the spa

    Things I'm not so looking forward to:

    - fastpass plus
    - the long flight in economy

    Hopefully the next time I post on this thread we will be on our way to Gatwick Airport :)

    So I'm up pacing around the room waiting to go.

    Just heard the 11am flight is delayed by two hours. Hopefully it won't affect our 1pm flight too much.

    Anyway a few photos from yesterday...

    Hope all is well. The weather today isn't the best, but you'll be arriving late, so hopefully tomorrow will be better for you and our DJ and CK!

    So we arrived on time yesterday.

    Flight was smelly as one of the toilets was out of order. We had quite bad terbulance over the Atlantic.

    Other than that no issues.

    We checked in around 7pm and had a lovely lady who was very helpful.

    We are in block 64 just around the corner from hospitality house. Which is great.

    From what I've seen of the resort it could well be my favourite yet. Big yes but very beautiful.

    We went for Denny's for a quick bite to eat, quick swim and then bed.

    Today we went to magic kingdom and used fastpass plus.

    I must say I was very negative but it worked very well and we even added extras during the day.

    A tip we learnt. You are allowed to be five mins early or up to 15 mins late on fastpass. So useful if you are running a bit late.

    Came back to the resort for a swim and now we're off to downtown disney.

    I will try and upload some photos later if my phone allows.
