Will read with interest.

I too was unable to complete my trippie from last years visit. I was doing them daily and on the 6th day I got the news that my Friend and Mentor of 30 years had died suddenly. Managed to keep the holiday going but the trippie paled into insignificance.

This year however will be a whole new story.

Update
 
Since my last update I have bought a couple of groupons ready for the holiday

BareBurger NYC $14 for $26 worth of food
CICI pizza Orland $14 for buffet for 4 people
Flight of fantasy-downtown disney balloon ride $36 for 4 of us

I have also booked our Outward journey from Cardiff to Feltham (near Heathrow) for 31.40 this is do all 4 of us! The friends and family railcard is amazing,
We then stay overnight at Feltham travelodge and will get a taxi to Heathrow.
Just need to wait for our return train journey to be released, which will need to be Gatwick to Cardiff

Update

Return train journey now purchased for 38.40, the one small problem is grandma and grandad just bought a new car and not sure we will fit our luggage in, when they collect us from the train station! Doh!
Getting excited now, but also fearful, as I hate flying!
