This trip sounds great, we have just come back from doing NYC, St Pete Beach (stayed at Grand Plaza) & a Villa just doing Disney parks.
In hindsight I think the Universal parks would of been better for us but we wanted to do Avatar in AK.
St Pete Beach was lovely & have a look at having your breakfast at Skidders (doesn't sound great but it was by far the best breakfast we had during all of our holiday).
Me & DS also did the Star Wars VR @ Disney Springs & would highly recommend this as you would go together as a family of 4 I reckon.
AMI is on our list to do & I was actually looking at swapping our few days in St Pete to AMI a few months before we went so great that you are doing both
Have a fantastic holiday
Here's the sunset @... see if you can guess:



Cheers
Les

Sounds like a great trip you have planned!

Sorry to hear about your redundancy but it sounds as if it could be for the best, to be mortgage free and have a better work life balance is living the dream!

How do you get on taking Hannah out of school, my eldest starts secondary this year and I find myself thinking I cant take him out of school, but I have booked for next year crossing a week with the October holidays and I am in the process of looking at Turkey for this September as well so that's another week out of school (your fault , I read your live report and knew I needed a chill out sunshine holiday)

What a lovely trip you have planned. I did chuckle at the Mums solo day bit!
Not too busy a time but also not just mooching about. The right mix in my view.
Redundancy. Mmm.
Along with nearly 75 of my colleagues I got pensioned off out of the blue when the financial crisis hit. What a shock! Best thing that ever happened to me, I would have killed myself with the hours I was working and the stress I was under if I had stayed.

Darn me 2 years later at 53 years of age my Wife got offered a package from the Civil Service. She was running up the road!
We are loving our retirement albeit the old age pension is a long way off - well for my Wife it is. I can just about see mine looming in 3+ years.

Love the sound of all your plans. I don't think you'll regret the redundancy, more time with the kids especially through exam times and teenage woes is always going to be a positive. Time for you to enjoy yourself as well xx

All sounds fantastic, we are hoping to be there at the same time ish as you this year if we can grab a bargain so will look out for you and the "eyebrows en flic"!

And it sounds as if it's meant to be, Helen. You simply never know what's round the corner and I honestly don't think you'll look back. Sometimes we do things because that's what we've always done, without questioning whether it's right for us and our family: good on you for being brave and taking the plunge, I really hope that you will love the freedom and liberation that comes with your choices. Pixiedust for a mid June exit!
