Special Family Holiday Aug 16-30 09

This is the trip report of what turned out to be our 'special' family holiday to Orlando. It was a trip of three related families in one villa, but with the all important 3 separate cars.

The Cast

The Colchester Family, Orlando Virgins, healthy living, 'cool', not so sure they have booked the right holiday. Think all internet forum users are sad nerds, but happy to make use of the tips others have picked up.

DB 48 (Masters Degree in sarcasm)
DSis-in-law 40ish (likes to eat and live healthy)
DNeice 12 (getting cooler by the hour)
DNephew 15 (far too cool for fun)

The Happy Bunny Family

DSis, Happy Bunny of Dibb fame, a young 50 this week and veteran of many a US visit.
HB's (ex)Step-Son 25, last visited 6 years back as part of a HB family holiday

The Spencem Family, on 3rd visit, would rather run a clapped out car and have house falling apart around them than give up Orlando.

Me (Spencem) 38, Theme Park Comando, everything else is just wasted ride time.
DW (AngelMouse5) 38, goes to Orlando to be a kid again
DS 13, still a kid and loving every second of it, yet to discover cool.

Day 1 Travelling
Day 2 Epcot
Day 3 Seaworld and Sharks Deep Dive
Day 4 Magic Kingdom
Day 5 Hollywood Studios
Day 6 IOA and overnight in the Royal Pacific
Day 7 Universal Stuidios and IOA
Day 8 Discovery Cove and Seaworld
Day 9 Magic Kingdom and Keys to the Kingdom tour
Day 10 Animal Kingdom and Boma
Day 11 DTD, Typhoon Lagoon and California Grill
Day 12 KSC
Day 13 Busch Gardens and Shuttle Launch
Day 14 Universal and MK
Day 15 Hollywood Studios and Home
