    Pre trip report
    It all started last week when once again i sat pricing holidays to florida up on the internet. Knowing my good friend Sharon was going and my wonderful Disney friend Teresa would be there was really setting me off. So once i got a price from first choice on the internet i rang the shop to see if they could match it. Got the phone call back saying yes they could match it, all i had to do was wait till craig got back in so i could run my mad idea to him and see what he thought. At first he didn’t know wether his mum would be away in august as we were going to get her to have the girls so he promised me he would ring the next day and ask her.

    Up bright and early the next morning there was nooooooooooo way i was waiting for craig to make the phone call so i made the call myself. Fantastic news no she wasn’t going away and yes she would have the girls for the week woooooooooo hoooooooooooooooo. So off i jump into the car to first choice to finally confirm my booking. Whilst there she said i could upgrade to premium for 150 quid each “ what the heck i thought why not” . so the booking was made.

    Details are :airplane: to florida on the 21st august 2009 from Birmingham, stopping at disney’s pop century for the week

    I'm going to try and book this if we do go at the end of the year.....something to mark our silver wedding anniversary with. I'd like to get the photos done without other guests in the background though so not sure which resort to book it at....also, it will be the xmas week so it will be crowded :unsure:

    Can you have two locations?
    If so, does the travel time take up photo taking time?

    pushing the boat out pre trippie part two

    PUSHING THE BOAT OUT PRE TRIP REPORT PART TWO
    3RD MAY 2009
    Well today its the 3rd may and im still sat here waiting for august park hours to come up so i can finalise my plans. Yesterday i got craig to treat me to a new camera for my holiday and i absolutely love it i had the canon ixus 95 IS (see picture below)

    Also sat and made my mousekeeping envelopes after the wonderful careen sent me some links(thanks careen).
    Today i took the kids to the pictures to watch Hannah Montana the movie craig managed to get out of going. it cost us a whopping £17 just for popcorn drinks sweets and ice cream. The holiday is nearly paid so next on the list is my Disney park tickets which i will get at the end of the month.
