Three Return to the Magic - October 2019

Hey guys

I wasn't going to write a pre-trip report but thought just do it or you will regret it so here we are.

We have been to WDW three times as a family and I went with my parents when I was 13. Previous three trip reports can be found under my ex-partners account (TheBeast).

Introductions first

Me:- Nicola - just turned 40 admin/accounts manager, full time single Mum, Disney mad. So looking forward to our return to Disney following our last trip in February 2015. We have been to Universal for a week in 2016 and Disneyland 2017.



Alex:- 14 (will be 15 when we travel). Amazing young man, mad in to football, Portsmouth FC season ticket holder and all round good egg.



Izzy:- 11. Really looking forward to the rides this time as she's brave now. Insta mad, drama queen, hard work but worth it Had 7 inches chopped off her hair twice last year and donated to Little Princess Trust!




One last introduction as I can't resist. Our 5 month old Cockapoo puppy Jasmine - Obviously won't be coming on the trip and will be missed.



How this trip came about We were all booked for October half term 2018 for 9 nights but I had to rearrange this following my separation due to lack of funds!

All booked for 8 nights from 25th October 2019 returning 2nd November 2019 staying at Port Orleans Riverside with Quick Service Dining Plan. Booked with Virgin Holidays on the 1pm flight from Gatwick. Will probably travel up the night before and stay at Premier Inn North Terminal - need to book this.


I booked our seats on the plane just before Christmas - we are the row of three second row from the exit door and plan a quick escape

Still to book - ADR's - although I will only be booking a couple as we are on the QSDP. I am going to book a breakfast and lunch at BOG and will definitely be booking breakfast at Garden Grille and paying out of pocket for brekkie with Chip and Dale.

Looking forward to the QSDP and not being tied to ADR's - equals more park time.

I will leave it there for now and be back for updates as things happen.

Feel free to add me on Instagram as holiday pics will be posted on here:- nicnaknic1

See ya real soon

Nicola

I hope you get back to Disney soon. I didn't feel too bad at postponing and now have an amazing holiday to look forward to that I can plan.

Seriously considering booking MNSSHP for actual Halloween! Expensive tho but how amazing would that be - should I / shouldn't I?

Customised our magic bands:-



Need to apply for a credit card which I will only be using for making bookings etc. Hope to use magic band and pay off balance with cash every few days once at WDW.

Will apply for our ESTAs in April to allow plenty of time.

Hi Nicola

I'm so glad you decided to record and share your trip with us.

I'm guessing, given their previous visits and their ages (I can't believe Alex is 14!), that the kids can be a big part of the planning with you?

Lots to look forward to!
