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!

Great pre-trip so far. Your countdown is tiny now! You must be getting so excited :-)
I went to NYC eleven years ago now and loved it! I found the entire place fascinating. Do your girls like the theatre? We got really cheap tickets from the TKTS booth in time square.

I'm interested to read this section of your report as I really want to take my kids when they are a bit older and can appreciate it. It looks like you have great things planned.

Can't wait to hear about the Orlando part of your holiday.
I hope you manage to complete your trip report when you get back. I've started a pre-trip report this time and am determined to see it through. But who knows! Lol

Oh my, I didn't realise your countdown had gotten so small! Exciting!

Great price on the trains, hope the luggage will fit in the car!

Orlando part

Here goes with the Orlando part...

So, after 3 days in the Big Apple we will depart Newark Airport for Orlando international in one of these


We paid around 220 for 2 adults and 2 children, including luggage, we depart just after 5pm and expect to arrive in Orlando around 8pm, as we won't have to clear immigration it should be a quick trip to baggage claim then off we go...

I managed to do Alamo, skip the counter, despite having prepaid, thanks to Yorkshire Dan for all his help with this! We will collect our Premium car, which we will have for 12 days



We paid just over 300 through alamo brits, could have had a cheaper car but this is what DH wanted.

We will then drive towards our home for the next 12 days... Fantasy World Resort

[IMG]

This resort looks awesome, I am surprised I don't read more trip reports with people staying here, the watermark looks amazing, there is indoor surf, fab location and only 606 for 12 nights!

We then have the following plans
Tue 26th May
Food shopping, swimming and a little surprise

Wed 27th May
Seaworld

Thu 28th May
Early rise to check in to Hard Rock Hotel for a one night stay for those front of the line passes

then head off to the Islands of Adventure



for fun and games, after time in the park we will head back to the hotel for some pool time before grabbing dinner at Bubba Gumps. I have applied for the Landry's card, so hoping it comes in time, so will have $25 credit plus the $25 for my birthday month

Fri 29th May
More fun, this time at Universal Studios

Sat 30th and Sun 31st May
Chilled out days to include visits to my favourite stores at the Altamonte Mall


and also visits to other favourites...

and


Mon 1st June
This is our 13th Wedding Anniversary and we plan to spend the day at Discovery Cove


We have 4 Dolphin Swims booked and are very excited about this as the kids have never done this before.

Tue 2nd June

A trip to Legoland


We have never been to the lone in Orlando before, so it will be interesting. We got the tickets free from Attraction Tickets Direct when we booked our Universal tickets last year.

Wed 3rd June
A fun packed wet day at Aquatica..another first for us


Thu 4th June and Fri 5th June
No specific plans as yet but time if needed to revisit any of the Seaworld or Universal parks.

Sat 6th June
Fly home at 18:15pm with Virgin Atlantic, direct into Gatwick.

I will update later with food info etc...
