Thanks for sharing you had a great time. Those 8 nights are going to fly by but hopefully we can make the most of it.

Ours actually did not feel too short. We were quite picky about what we wanted to do and made sure we also had lots of pool time as we love riverside. Felt like the best of both worlds. Would do again in a flash.

Little update with change of ADR for Garden Grill. When I was looking at planning what FP+ to book at the end of August I realised how crazy the tiering system is at Epcot. Ideally we want to rope drop Soarin before breakfast so have cancelled our 8.45am breakfast at Garden Grill and have now booked breakfast at GG for 9.55am hoping to do Soarin and anything else we can fit in on park opening at 9am.

ADR's now look like this:-
26th October 8.20am BOG
30th October 9.55am Garden Grill
30th October 6.25pm Ohana
2nd November 12.30pm BOG

In other news we are all booked in to Premier Inn at Gatwick North Terminal the night before we fly so will do Twilight checkin with Virgin before dinner at the Premier Inn where I am sure we will all be massively excited! Also got breakfast booked the next morning - yum!

No update on Alex's MNSSHP costume although he still says he is going as Thanos.

Alex took an actual real GCSE in Year 10 - they took RE so will get the results of that in August before he starts Year 11 in September and things get really real! He also has a few weeks of mock exams now. Izzy will also be starting Year 7 in September so they will be at the same school for one year. She just sat her SATS.

And a little post groom Jasmine spam as she's so cute!

Hey there we are all good - the kids are very settled and happy and apart from Izzy's almost teenage moods (she is really only 11 - help ) life is rosy.


How exciting you are going just before us - and GF too I love that hotel. Off to check if you have a pretrip report.

Happy planning to you too - I really want to get the FP booked now. xx

Hi, great news on booking GG, Ive never had the breakfast but heard good things we have a lunch booked this year.
We are splitting our stay 5 nights in wilderness cabins then 10 nights old key west my home resort.
I was I was initially stressing as my youngest was due to start secondary school this sept but as it happens at present he has no place and is on the waiting list so this time I may not get the fine, well every penny saved is a penny more to spend in Florida right? 😆.
Still so much to do we need to hire the car, esta and get our insurance renewed.
I did find a cheap deal for seaworld, aquatica and busche though with all day dining so we couldnt say no really as it worked out 30 each per day and I intend to eat my way through their menus 😆🥤
Not long til fast pass day!

So I just booked a late ADR for Oga's Cantina Dinner at 9.10pm on 28th October (one of our HS days). We had no other plans for dinner so guess just find somewhere in HS for dinner before a drink at Oga's. I'm such a sheep haha!

Now I'm thinking of cancelling our Restaurantosaurus dinner reservation for the 27th. I don't want too many in park dinner plans and be tied down.

Decisions - will check with the kids later.

ADR's now look like this:-
26th October 8.20am BOG
27th October 4.45pm Restaurantosaurus
28th October 9.10pm Oga's Cantina Dinner (just drinks I believe)
30th October 9.55am Garden Grill
30th October 6.25pm Ohana
2nd November 12.30pm BOG
