Third time even luckier - My Pre-Trip

One of the main things I love about The Dibb is the reports that people complete about their trips. Specifically the food reports. I have been lurking here asking a few questions here and there about various parts of our trips, advice and guidance.

I thought this time, I would try my hand at writing report. So here is the Pre-Trip, and then I will do my best to create a food report, and save all the receipts etc.

53 Days (at time of writing) and it cannot come quick enough.

Where to start...
I first went to Florida in 2010 with a friend and her family (it was an ok trip, still great to see everything)
I took my now wife and our daughter in 2015 (Daughter was 7 at the time) Best trip ive ever had, her wee face lighting up all the time.
2019 - Here we go again, Third Time for me, second for my little family.

CAST: Me (Jayne, 37), My Wife (Laura,36) our Daughter (Abbie, 11) plus a few Extras, My wifes mum (Ann, 63) My wifes Aunt (Christine 58) and Unlce (John, 61) and also then My Wife's Cousin (Ian, 31) who will join us for the second two weeks.

We are going from 30th June until 21st July (When going so far, might as well make use of it).

I booked it all with Virgin Holidays, apart from Car Hire, which I took off after a few months, which resulted in a 1400 saving, which wasnt the case when I removed the car hire to check prices when I was booking (it only changed the booking by 100 i think at the time. Bonus savings. I then booked a 7 Seat SUV and a Small Car with Andy over at DFCH. Thanks Andy, you have been a gem and I will recommend you and never go anywhere else for car hire again.

So we are flying Direct from Belfast to MCO and also direct flight back, Virgin 4 Bed Standard Villa Allocated on Arrival. We will also spend the 4th July in Clearwater, and have a one night stay in the Hard Rock Hotel.
The Small car is booked via Alamo
The SUV 7 Seat is booked via Avis

I will add a new post with our full Itinerary Plan.

Also apologies if I am not doing this right. its my first time!
The Excitement is real!

Read my First pre-trip here

I will be doing a food report... hopefully.
