    Rich & Ann's PRE-TRIP Report 2010!!

    Well we are back off to WDW at the end of October for another 3 week vacation at WDW!!

    I know it's a little early to start a thread, but since I've been MIA for far too long, I thought I would - LOL!!

    Re: Rich & Ann's PRE-TRIP Report 2010!!

    Like most other Brits with living so far away across The Pond, we don't get to visit as often as we would like. But when we do visit, we try to do it in style!

    I can't believe how the time flies and how we were getting this excited for our October trip back in 2008. Just like that trip, it'll just be Ann and I... But we are hoping [and planning] on meeting other members & friends while we are there.

    We fly out to Orlando from Manchester Airport on Friday 29th October but our holiday will start the day before as we make our way to Manchester Airport for a nights stay at the Radisson there:




    The reason for this is firstly to get in the holiday spirit - not that we'll need it and secondly, our flight is at 10.25am with a 3hour check-in. It'll save us getting up soooo early allowing us to get up around 7am, get the bags checked in, back to the Radisson for breakfast and then onwards through Passport Control and onto our plane.

    We booked the holiday through Virgin Holidays. Working for one of Sir Richard's sister companies (Virgin Trains) we get great perks and discounts on all his brands! Needless to say we'll be flying on a Virgin Atlantic Boeing 747-400 and have upgraded to Premium Economy sitting in the 'pod' of the aircraft:




    We have not hired a car as we'll be spending all our time in one park or another. Therefore once we get to Orlando International, we'll be transported to our hotel by Mears Transportation. (All part of the holiday package).

    Plans are coming together great:

    We will be able to go to both MNSSHP and MVMCP and have free dining for the whole of our trip!!

    Yesterday, I finished off our ADRs - A whole 20 days worth plus a few extra ones!

    Is it OK to book more ADRs than you need?...

    I wouldn,t think it,d matter if you overbooked................you never know if you may not make one or two ..................just don,t ......or try not to miss the ones where you need to pay a deposit which you lose if you don,t turn up.....................or if you can just let guest relations know that you won,t be able to make it on the morning of the booked ADR

    Oh my goodness they're starting their pre-trip excitement. Who am I kidding. It probably started the day they arrived back home from the last trip. Can't wait to see you both.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?

    Adult daycare for the kid inside you.

    Yeah, the idea is to cancel the ones we don't actually want nearer the time or when we are there!!

    Don't confuse people. I recently had non-Disney friends visit WDW, and they each took turns asking where the HP park was located. I think they now understand that there are four separate theme parks on property. We didn't get into water parks.

    I am glad to see your pre-trip report. I, too, have been gone for a while and don't get to travel to Disney this year. I am going to live through your eyes! Thanks for taking the time!
