    Wendy we did it about 10 years ago and it was fine. We usually have to drive for a few hours when we get to a US airport so no difference really and gives me a chance for a couple of nights by the sea

    Lol Bev, there will be lots of chilling I promise!


    Right....I've been fiddling :yes:

    Firstly upgraded the SUV to a full size one as we're 4 adults really and want to be comfy on our travels.

    Cancelled costa d'este at vero beach and used some loyalty points to just stay over night at a country inn and suites at vero beach, we'll just want to go to walmart get some stuff, eat and go to bed. Then the next morning we'll leave about 6am for Orlando where I've added another night at the Royal Pacific Hotel.

    Dining: due to Caitlin crying when we saw a video trip report of Cinderellas castle I have booked us both in for breakfast one morning. (shhh it's a secret)
    Also booked for us two to go to chef mickeys for breakfast
    And just now booked the dessert party in Magic Kingdom (no one knows about that!)

    Phew

    we used to watch fireworks from there, I especially remember at our first MVMCP and Rudolph flew over instead of Tink, lovely memory of the kids being excited
