Our 2nd trip - Er, where's the rain? Aug 2014 - COMPLETE

Hi - so this is the trip report of our 2nd trip to WDW.



You may remember us from the following pre-trippy:

Who is this Gino from the Yemen?

And our highs and (not many) lows.

Highs, not so highs and a few disappointments

The name "Er, where's the rain" is due to the heatwave Orlando was experiencing whilst we were there. We almost got to the point where we were disappointed when clouds disappeared, as a bit of rain would actually have been quite welcome - I know, what are we like?

Hope you enjoy.

Day 0 (17/8/14) - the one with the train
Day 1 (18/8) - the one with the plane
Day 2 (19/8) - the one where we escaped from Gringotts
Day 3 (20/8) - the one with the killer heat (and whale)
Day 4 (21/8) - the one where we nearly didn't escape from Gringotts
Day 5 (22/8) - the one with the mighty Busch
Day 6 (23/8) - the one where HRH ended and POFQ started
Day 7 (24/8) - the one where we didn't like FP+ (HS)
Day 8 (25/8) - the one where we grew to love FP+ (AK & DTD)
Day 9 (26/8) - the one with the spider meltdown (Epcot & DisneyQuest)
Day 10 (27/8) - the one where we created a "people mover" monster
Day 11 (28/8) - the one with the lost hat
Day 12 (29/8) - the one where it actually rained
Day 13 (30/8) - the one with Dr Who
Day 14 (31/8) - the one where I broke my toe
Day 15/16 (1-2/9) - the one where we went home
Final thoughts and future plans

I'm gradually deleting and updating my photobucket pictures

Thankyou I wasn't sure if it was a bit rambling, but thought it would be good to look back on, even if no-one reads it
