Well after a little persuasion I have got hubbie to agree to an extra special holiday next year!
The idea of a holiday to Italy, as lovely as it was, is now on the back burner. Instead I have booked us a trip to…
Wait for it
SQUEALS of excitement here as I have wanted to go back in like forever. I turn 40 next year and I really hoped we would have the holiday of a lifetime to celebrate but hubbie had initially said a big fat no, I had even written it on our 5-year travel plan rather optimistically but it looks like we are back on target as its all sorted!
2018 is the year I get to wear Minnie ears and drink wine slushies – yes in MK (now I have done so much research I get to write abbreviations) you can buy wine slushies! #Disneygoals for the grownups must now include trying the strawberry Shiraz slushie and the mango Muscat slushie. Hubbie on the other hand is craving a giant steak, one of those if you finish it you eat for free kind of deals! I don’t think he quite realises just how big the portions are in Florida yet.
I have been spending most evenings writing itineraries, doing lots of research about the best times to visit each theme park, the dibb website has a fantastic forum if you need any tips about crowds, where to buy tickets, what attractions you must visit etc etc.
My schedule is ambitious, I want to do unlimited Disney and Universal, book a manatee swim (such wonderful creatures), squeeze in Gatorland and if possible the newer attractions on International Drive!
Rest days are for the weak – right??? Although I will probably hit a wall of exhaustion! But hoping to power through it.
If you have been to Florida and have any tips please feel free to leave them in the comments, I am soaking up everything to do with Orlando at the moment, I am even dreaming about it. Hubbie doesn’t mind as he can play computer games in peace because I am so focused on project Orlando (here I come!).
Expect to see more Florida posts in the run up to the holiday. I need to share all my new-found information with someone, I am sure hubbie only listens with half an ear! I need the true Florida fanatics to keep giving me advice.
