Eden loves Moana. Although we have an ongoing joke where she shouts "I AM BANAAAAAANAAAAA" instead of Moana...

I'm hoping Moana is at the Halloween party this year so Eden can finally meet her hero. She was there in 2017 when we went to the Christmas party but Eden zonked out during the parade and didn't wake up until the next morning

Cute Moana dress!

We got to meet Moana at the Halloween party in 2017. We queued for ages, over two hours. It was worth it, but definitely get in that queue early if you want to meet her.

I'm hoping to squeeze her in after the late parade. That's when we were going to go before and she only had a fe3w people waiting. It was just unfortunate that Eden was dead to the world

We cancelled our Universal tickets. I'm a little gutted that I won't see Seuss Landings this trip, but there was so little for Eden to do that it was almost silly to spend 200 on a ticket for her. And Aiden and I wouldn't have been able to ride anything together because somebody would need to stay with Eden.

We'll be back, so we will save it for a future trip.

We've decided to use one of those days for a trip out to LEGOLAND. Eden is OBSESSED with the Lego Movies , so she will be living her best life there and there is very little that she can't do at LEGOLAND as opposed to Universal.

I've just read your elequent blog post about the change to Papa, Eden and Me as had wondered when I read the title and I applaud you both for being so open about the changes.

Your trip sounds fantastic and I'm sure Eden will enjoy Legoland much more than Universal as she is at just the right age for all the rides there. I'm the opposite as my DD will be 13 and hasn't been for 5 years so will now be tall enough (in fact she's almost taller than me now) and hopefully brave enough to do the bigger rides and we are mainly doing Universal as she is a HP fan.

Look forward to reading your report as the time will soon fly in.

48 days to go!

48 days to go!


And I am SUPER excited!

Call this ridiculous, but I actually cannot believe that we are staying at the Beach Club. Its a real bucket list resort for me and I could not be more excited about it.

We went to a festival (more like a village fete!) the other day and Eden got her hair done while we were there. She was telling the lady all about how she was going to go to Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique and get a princess makeover.



She also got her face painted as Spider Gwen, which Aiden reliably tells me is a real character...



Oh! And Eden has also reached the dizzy heights of 40 inches! This is with shoes on but I will take it!



As for me, Ive lost almost 13kg so far in my quest for a decent holiday bod 😂 Its a general health thing for me, but obviously my holiday photos looking awesome is a pretty good incentive to have.

Managed to snag a couple of Star Wars related reservations.

We have a Oga's Cantina Breakfast reservation on our Hollywood Studios day on the 25th. Then we have a reservation for Aiden and Eden to build a droid after. On the 4th October we have a late Oga's Cantina "dinner" reservation. Aiden's as happy as a pig in mud
