***COMPLETE*** August 2016: An Impromptu Adventure

Hi All,

Well, 9 months since our trip and our report is pretty much ready to go. Just as a brief introduction (there is a more detailed one in our pre-trippie) the cast are:

John (35) chief planner and fabulous husband. 11th trip to Florida after I suggested we visit the magic back in 2002. Since then he's fallen in love with the place and we are now proud DVC owners at BLT after buying in in 2009.

Me, Niki, (32) It's my 15th trip to Florida and the memories and magic it holds makes it an addiction.



It really is our happy place and this year we have really needed some Disney medicine, hence our impromptu adventure to the house of mouse and world of wizards.

Hope you enjoy reading...

I do, although I'm sure there's a few typos and grammatical errors slipping through as I'm not proof reading very well 😆 x

I say to mine no one is perfect, but try to get as close as you can it 😆 Mine would be really critical, but we play 'beat the teacher' and they have to spot the "purposeful" I make, so I teach them to be critical, they get rewards for it 😂

thank you for sharing your holiday! i really have my fingers and toes crossed for you both - wanting a baby and not getting it is just horrible, we had a bumpy start to our family too, just not quite as bumpy as yours.

looks like we will be at WDW about the same time...

Thank you, I'm glad you have reached the end of your bumpy road, you just think having a baby is a given, but when it doesn't happen it takes up your life.

Look out for us and say hi if you see us, it'd be great to meet other dibbers. We're at portofino bay for the first 5 nights then moving over to Saratoga for last 13...can't wait. We booked late this year and it was the only one left for our whole stay. AKL is lovely, are you in Jambo or Kidani x
