Oh wow, what a lucky girl! I was just like your daughter and was a childhood dream, but I had to wait until I was 30 to go! We've been to NY twice now with no kids and must admit to feeling a bit guilty, but we had an absolute ball! Can't wait to take them all there one day. We managed to get crown tickets for statue of liberty last time which was fantastic, highly recommend if you can bag them...they go early though. The views from Ellis island were amazing too. Good luck on getting tickets for Wicked, we saw Lion King (booked in advance) but hubby almost fell to sleep as he was so tired from walking all day! On a different note, I read lots of NY chick-lit before going if your daughters into that? I heart new york was a good one. Whatever you decide, have fun, it'll be incredible!

Hi, your trip sounds fab and very similar to our own. We travel later this month also with our 15 yr old DD. First time for all of us, we're so excited. Counting the days

Ps if you walk over Brooklyn bridge you must go to dumbo street in the left. That's the street where you see the Empire State Building through the bridge - it's iconic and a fab photo opportunity - totally stumbled on it by accident last time and not at all far from the bridge

Still to do a 2017 one
Thanks a lot Mrs Dee, i had heard of the Dumbo area but wasnt sure what was there so will definately make sure we go - noticed the link to your report so spending a sunny afternoon in the garden reading that 😀😀

Its brilliant to realise a childhood dream and especially when it meets expectations! I know my daughter will be thrilled... but is already talking about a next time 🙈🙈!
We have crown tickets I booked them as soon as they were available... got 9am on our first morning so hopefully wont be too busy or hot at that time.
My daughter is not a reader but its watching lots of you tube videos!
Thanks so
Much for your comments 😀

Yay, so excited to read this and relive our own NYC memories and get new ideas for our next visit

That's the same route from Aberdeen that we flew. I hope you get a lucky upgrade! (We didn't )

Love that your DD is so excited to have her wish come true, I hope you all have an amazing time.

Hi Lynda,

Great that youre planning to return Ive enjoyed all your trip reports and always handy to compare flights with another aberdeen flyer! How was your flight its been a long time since we flew long haul with BA... we only have an hour in Heathrow between flights which makes me a little nervous!

Hi Julie, we will definitely be returning at some point, it's a great place. Our flights were good, we like BA. I think we had to change terminals at Heathrow, but I can't remember how long we had to connect. I don't think it was a long connection though, I seem to remember going straight through, no hanging about. I'm sure you'll be fine.
