Triple Cheers, Beers & Minnie Ears 2019 - Pre Trip Report

Hello and welcome to my first ever pre-trip report (how exciting!)

So, the trip report title...
We are celebrating Nicky's Birthday, Nicky & Paul's anniversary & Katie's upcoming graduation = Triple Cheers!
And well Beers & Minnie Ears is pretty self-explanatory.

So, let me introduce us!

The Cast

Katie
Trip reporter. Eldest daughter of Nicky & Paul. Girlfriend of Ben. Just qualified as a Nurse. Foodie. Cocktail & prosecco lover. Loves everything about WDW/Orlando. 13th visit.

Ben
Boyfriend of Katie. 2nd visit. Fussy eater. Loves bud-light, cars & big rides. Best sense of humour. Big kid at heart.

Nicky
The Boss of our family. Wife of Paul. Mom to Katie & Lucy. Disney mad. Chief organiser and planner (should really be the trip reporter). Ice cream enthusiast. 16th visit.

Paul
Husband of Nicky. Dad to Katie & Lucy. Beer lover. Bank & Taxi service. Golfer. Epcot is his favourite park. 15th visit.

Lucy
Youngest daughter of Nicky & Paul. Sister of Katie. Has Cerebral Palsy. Disney/Harry Potter obsessed. Loves character meets, parades & pool time. 14th visit.

Jess
Best friend of Katie. Fiancee of Ross. Multiple visits but has never done a 'planned' disney trip before. Vegetarian. Has a sweet tooth.

Ross
Fiance of Jess. 2nd Trip. Pizza lover. Rollercoaster fan. The most laid back person you will ever meet.


Dates
24th October - 10th November including an overnight airport stay and an overnight flight back home.

Flights
Flying direct LGW-MCO with BA World Traveller Plus on 25th October.
£760pp for BA Flydrive.
Pre-booked seats free of charge due to Lucy's additional needs.

Accommodation
After a mixture of onsite and offsite visits, we decided on a Villa for this trip due to extra space, private pool, choice of offsite restaurants. With there being 7 of us it was important that we didn't feel on top of each other and have booked a beautiful villa on Highlands Reserve in Davenport
£2500 for 15 nights with pool heating.

Dining/Food
As a family, we have dined in nearly every restaurant in WDW and are looking forward to trying some different offsite restaurants with more flexibility. Nicky has a list of around 30 potential restaurants/places to eat (which needs narrowing down haha!). Some include; Millers, Ford's Garage, Cheesecake Factory, Teak Neighbourhood Grill, Manny's Chophouse, Chilli's, Outback, Steak & Shake, Five Guys, Hard Rock, Egg City, First Watch, Cracker Barrell (you get the gist).

Parks & Plans
We have bought 2 week disney & universal tickets.
Staying at universal's Portifino Bay on 4th November, so have express passes for 4th and 5th November. We are planning to do the Old Town Kissimmee Car show on the saturday night (mainly for ben!). We also have booked MVMCP for our last evening (which Jess is ecstatic about as she LOVES christmas!). We are also planning to have a couple of days/afternoons shopping at florida mall, mall at millennia and the outlets.

Hope you all enjoy following along
