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...
Looking good

Looking forward to nabbing some tips about New York

Aha - I'm in! We are booked at Fantasy World in August...375 for 7 days, with the waterpark - seems too good to be true!

Next year, we are thinking of Canada (have family there), New York then Orlando for 7 nights... not sure whether to drive to NYC or fly...or skip it and have more time in Canada... maybe your NY trip will help me decide!

UPDATE

So my countdown is getting smaller, and my nerves are getting worse lol!
It was DH's birthday last week so revealed his birthday surprise...
A TOP GUN shooting experience with Topgun Orlando! Woohoo, he will get to shoot 10 different guns on our first full day in Orlando!

I have started to pack the cases, loving the packing cubes, I even managed to get a new swimming costume which isn't awful!
We changed a few more dollars in the local Thomsons travel agent at 1.47 (post Office offering 1.4?)
This week I want to sign up for all the restaurant offers, also getting a little worried as my Landry's card still hasn't arrived eek! I hope that money wasn't spent in vain!

Great sounding Orlando plans. Your hotel looks great, I would love that pool/water park area.

It's always exciting once you start packing. Hope the Landry card comes soon.
