Charlotte's 10th visit, Jack's first! - Pre-trip 2019 - UPDATED 23/6/19

Hello!
I have never done a pre-trip or a trip report before! However I love reading everybody else's so thought I'd get involved.

So this trip will involve me (Charlotte) and my boyfriend (Jack):


I'm 27 (29 by the time of the trip ) and Jack is 25 (27 by the time of the trip) - he's my toyboy heh. We have been together 10 months and we have just moved in together in the West Midlands <3 So enough about us!

I have been to Orlando 9 times so I like to consider myself an expert , Jack has never even been to the USA never mind Orlando and I am just so SO excited to show him what all the hype is about. It took me a little while to convince him that it will be worth it but he's agreed!

SO! Rough plan is first two weeks of November 2019 so we can see Christmas but also catch the last of the food & wine festival (if they follow the same dates as this year).

I am (im)patiently waiting for free DDP to come out so I can do a comparison but otherwise looking at staying off site either on International Drive or Kissemmee to keep costs down. We'll use uber to get around because I don't like driving there and I used uber last time with my mum no problems.

Looking to get 2 week combo tickets for WDW and Universal 3 parks and then will probably just pay for seaworld 1 day pass because every time I get a 2 week pass for seaworld and still only go for one day!


Sorry this is a lot of text! Thanks for reading!

We are officially booked!

I did some shopping around and everywhere was coming up ridiculous prices for November next year but I was sure I could get the price down. I finally found a company called Florida Masters which gave me a great price! So!

2nd November 2019 we will be flying direct from Manchester with Virgin to Orlando International and then stopping for 2 weeks at Maingate Lakeside Resort in Kissemmee which is 1.8 miles from WDW!

All for the bargain price of 677 each! Last year me and my mum paid 650 each for indirect flights and 2 weeks in kissemmee so I am chuffed with this price.

The countdown begins!

I literally haven't spoken to them since I booked it but no issues so far! They're ATOL protected and had good online reviews so I just went with it.
