A Whole New World, July 2016! ~ Pretravel day

Pre-trip report Here
Introductions...
Hello I'm Marie, 39yrs old and a Dibb addict! I've had two trips to DLP before finding the Dibb and getting hooked. Not long after the inevitable happened and a holiday to America was booked giving me 2 years to book, plan and obsess about all thing Disney World!


Next up is Nigel, 37yrs old and my DH of 14 years. He lets me batter away with whatever keeps me happy and works hard to fund it!


Joseph DS1 12yrs old, playstation nut, loves chilling in his room watching movies and TV shows. He's very laid back and has a fantastic sense of humor!


Lastly it's Liam my DS2, he's 9yrs old. Liam is a hugh fan of everything! He's the most enthusiastic, happy, chatty boy with a big heart.


Pre-travel day Friday 1st July 2016
Is there anything more exciting than starting your holibobs?
We started the day with getting all the suitcases sorted and packed into the car before setting off for Dublin and our night in the Premier Inn.


The drive took just over 3hours and we stopped off for some food at Applegreen Service Station. We all had something from BurgerKing, yum!


Soon we were checking in to Premier Inn Swords, we've stayed here before and it's in a fab retail park with places to eat and shops.

We decided to go into Swords town and have a look about to pass the time. There was a huge shopping center called Pavillions and it had lots of great shops including Pennys (Irelands Primark). We all eneded up getting a little pretrip present for ourselves!
Nigel got some speakers, Joseph got a Deadpool hat which he wore all holiday, Liam got a massive Freddy teddy from Five Nights of Freddys!
I treated myself to these...


We got back to the hotel and I tried to check in online for our flights the next day, I checked the boys in without problem but it wouldn't let me check in
I gave up and went to bed, not much sleep was had!
