Mobile Pre-Trip report for our 2nd 'once in a lifetime' holiday haha

WE'RE OFF TO SEE THE MOUSE (again)

yup, so we got back from staying a fortnight at Disney's Saratoga Springs resort in 2017 and we had already decided that we'd definitely be going back (yay! no need to try and do some convincing, haha!)



so this year we are heading to the Animal Kingdom Lodge! yippee!
We were tempted to upgrade to this resort on our last trip but by the time i'd actually made up my mind the price had gone up more than i was willing to pay so we stayed put (and glad we did as we really did love SSR, shame it wasn't available for this year )

Follow my pre-trip resort and i'll make you seem super unorganised as i like to organise EVERYTHING



Just a little run down if you didn't catch my last pre-trip; we're a family of 4; the winkles (P and X) and the adults; mum and dad we also have a dog who pretty much things he's a child called Ichigo (he was only a pupper when we went on holiday last time!) and our recent family addition is a wee fuzz ball hamster called Hamtaro. For obvious reasons, the fur babies will have to stay at home with the less exciting humans that are the grandparents

Good start. What about Teppen Edo or Raglan Road as your last ADR? We love both of them.

we done Raglan Road in '17 and my OH wasn't too fond of it. I'd love to do Teppen Edo but being a super fuss pot i don't think i'd eat anything (which is a shame) we're thinking of somewhere in Disney Springs possibly as there's sooo much to choose from :O

Another thing i'd like to get for going this year is a nice little compact digital camera. I found my phone was ok, but didn't like the hot weather and was always kinda fogged up

We are going to try Chef art smith homecoming this year for a change after doing RR on our two previous trips. Maybe worth checking out, as it gets great reviews.

we've decided to try out Wolfgang Pucks bar and grill at least we know there will be something for everyone

looking into maybe getting this camera for holidays; i'd like a camera instead of using my phone every time



does anyone have any good reccomendations for a camera preferably under 200 or around the 200 mark?

so, we said we weren't going to do MNSSHP this time around...



well my finger just slipped and now we're doing the 1st October, haha! oops!


that means i can get my sewing on as this year the kids actually know we're going. DD wants to go as finding dory, DS wants to go as Jack Sparrow, OH hasn't decided his attire yet but i'm tempted to go us Ursula. not full bells and whistles mind you, just maybe a black dress with purple under, make some Ursula ears and black flatties. simple, comfortable and i won't be sweating my baps off either lol!
