    DD - Lauren - 22........................5th Trip
    DS - Mikey - 19 when leave..........4th Trip
    Kelly - My Niece [brothers DD].......Disney Virgin
    Jamie - Nephew [sisters DS].........2nd Trip with us

    Booked in a B&B on the 16th Oct close to Gatwick

    Leaving on Flight VS015, Take Off 12.45 17th October 2008 :fingers:

    Accommodation - 5 Bed Villa in the Sunset Ridge gated community

    Planning started on the same day i got the go ahead to fly again, around June last year. I came home from the hospital and was searching right away to book a long awaited trip, god it seems a lifetime ago since the last trip, just under 3yrs to be exact, we did have a trip booked in 2006 but you all know the reasons why that was cancelled :(

    Eventually found a good price for flights with virgin and an 8 seater minivan, and what looks like a superb villa courtesy of our own Malcolm, who kindly offered it to me at a very good rate ;) cheers malc, bit of free advertising there ;) :lol:

    Planning on visiting the following parks

    Magic Kingdom
    Epcot
    Hollywood Studios
    Animal Kingdom, was going to give this a miss tbh, but seeing as Kelly hasn't been we decided to do it just for her
    Blizzard Beach
    Typhoon Lagoon - just love these parks
    Islands of Adventure
    Sea world

    Still looking at booking a Couple of ADR's - i know I'm dragging my heels
    We are doing MNSSHP on the 28th October

    1st time going with the 400D, so planning on lots of photos, may even do a live report each night, notice the may do, i don't think that will go down too well, but when the mice are away the cat will play ;) :lol:

    this trip cant come quick enough i can tell you......well thats this trip as planned so far......hope Ive not bored you too much and you are still awake ;) :lol:

    Well, after I'd picked myself up off the floor at seeing a pre trippy from you, I had a read of it.
    Looks good.....take lots of photos of MNSSHP pretty please....I am tempted to go that time of year just for this, Howl o Scream at BG and the US Halloween party.

    HEY! Whaddaya' mean you were going to skip the AK! :eek: That's my second favorite park after EPCOT! :eek:

    :lol: Sounds like you are long deserving of this holiday Mick. I sure hope all goes well for you and the flights over are uneventful and as easy as they can be. :yes:

    Nice of you to bring the niece and nephew!

    Of course, you know I'll be looking for the photos. :D Well, all but the ones at US Horror Nights. :eek: Not too keen on that sort of stuff, so I'll just close my eyes when you post those, ok? :wink:

    yeah we loved MNSSHP. We had a competition to see who could get the most sweets :lol: DW was winning by a mile until the exit of the park when a CM must have been leaving for the night or something because he came over and just poured his whole stash into my trick/treat bag :lol:

    Great night though and I agree with Wendy, although I love MVMCP too, I think the halloween party was even better

    I'm honoured oh great leader that you think so ;) :lol:

    you will i promise Claire :)

    we were going to give it a miss, only Denise really likes the park i can take it or leave it tbh. don't get me wrong i don't dislike it, I'm just not a huge fan of looking at animals, seen em once they don't change, a tiger is still a tiger ;) :lol:

    we took my nephew last time and he liked it soooooo much he said he was going to ask me if he could come even if i didn't ask him :lol:

    i thought it would be nice for Lauren to have someone to have there as Mikey had Jamie and she soooooo loves Disney too, so does her mum and brother but my brother said he don't want to spend a holiday trudging around a theme parks :eek:

    we are not doing US horror nights tink i dont think my ticker could stand that :lol:

    well for what Ive been thru the last two years next week i think its fitting even if i say do myself....this thing i have is pretty rare and still has a poor prognosis....but you have to carry on and try not to think of that

    i know we are wen we did it last trip too and i loved it :D

    thats the understatement of the year helly :lol:
