so, this has been a fairly uneventful pre-trip report thus far, haha!

cannot believe that we are almost in the double figures. it's gone by so quickly. it's going to be september before we know it ... cannot wait!

been looking at a few vids on youtube of the upgrades Animal Kingdom lodge rooms and they look fab. the bathroom looks so much brighter! i'm liking the wooden flooring instead of carpet too. so much easier to keep clean i'd say. The new and improved safe size is fab too. the other safes are so tiny!

nothing exciting to report really, just thought i'd check in.

Oh! and about the camera situation; just upgraded my phone to one that has an awesome camera so problem solved, yay!

so; choices of upgraded magicbands.

I'd chosen the ones our party wanted, go to have a look today and the ones me and DD want have been removed (or they're out of stock or whatever it is that's going on)

come back Vanellope and snacky magicband

*cries*

so the upgraded magicband situation seems to be a bit up in the air at the moment so we're not going to count on them being available for us before we go (although it would be nice)

we're on double digits now too! argh! that's come around so quickly! better get some holiday clothes shopping done soon!

so, i managed to get the snack magicband!

but silly me got a bit too carried away and headed to check-out and paid for it then realized "oh poop, i've not ordered everyone elses!" hah! i've emailed Disney Merch and they've said i can phone and add magicbands to my order before we arrive so that makes me feel a little better...



I fired another email off to disney to see if there was anything my daughter could do/see involving otters (she's a massive fan of them and she has a cuddle party otter that goes everywhere with us) Disney being the magical place that it is emailed me back saying they've contacted the otter keeper at Animal kingdom and are going to sort out a little meeting for my daughter! the experience will take around 60 minutes and they're going to email me back with all the information on what time of the day etc... i wasn't expecting anything like this from them at all!




almost time to say:

WE GO TO DISNEY NEXT MONTH!

man it's come around fast but i cannot wait!


next stop, organising fastpasses on wednesday

so, fastpasses are sorted. managed to get flight of passage on 2 seperate days so i'm looking forward to that after managing to accidentally deleting my fastpass in'17 >_<

I'm also wondering if we're going to manage to get into Galaxies edge when it opens... i think it's going to be hoaching with it being just open a month but we shall see. DS really wants a wee shoulder Porg, haha. He's a little obsessed with those puffin/penguin beasties. I have to admit, they're kinda cute.


i've been notified that we're getting to meet at 11am with the otter keeper. I'm thinking of making my daughter some otter ears... hehe how cute would that be?!


Another thing i've been looking at is trying to catch illuminations and the new epcot forever fireworks. I'll miss illuminations but sometimes a freshen up is good

ARGH! DISNEY NEXT MONTH!

ok so the countdown just hit me and how close we are to going. I cannot wait!

I think we have everything sorted out now... just have to get a hold of the kids premium magic bands. Otter experience is all sorted (we're meeting at AK 11am outside the otter enclosure )

just feel my anxiety starting to build up though. Damn mental health >_<
