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
