Looking forward to following along with your plans xx
The waterpark definitely was a selling point, I can't wait to be floating around that lazy river!

She's going on her 4th trip to Florida in a few weeks, I think we need to start taking her to other places

We've actually bought a kids Fire for the plane to hopefully keep her occupied. I'm not normally one for encouraging kids to sit with their face in a screen but if it gets us through the flight then so be it! We tried taking new toys when we went in September and she just wasn't interested so I'm hoping the Fire works for us.

We found that doing the parks late afternoon to evening worked better due to how hot it was. We spent time in the pools and water parks and then got showered and went to a park or dinner. That worked well for us and we we mainly just went with the flow. We didn't really plan an itinerary so I would say to just see how you all feel and see how Charlie is each day and go from there. If you get a stroller fan get one that has an enclosure, Ava ripped off one of the foam propellers within 2 seconds

I am so excited to see this! Very much enjoyed the little stroll down memory lane - can't believe 2016 is such a dim and distant place in the past now.

Loving John and Joan's cowboy hats. And that villa - serious interior design goals. And what a pool area - almost tempting me to an off site stay.

Hope it's near a McDonalds for your milkshake fix xx

I love the look of your villa, it's refreshing to see one looking so fresh and modern. The water park looks great too, it will be nice to chill out there in the evenings.

Glad to hear Charlie has his own seat on the plane, I don't have kids but I always feel sorry for families who are so short of space on the plane.

Looking forward to hearing about your plans for Charlie's first trip, it's fab you have some babysitters along for the ride.

Haha I can't believe that in her short little life Ava has been to Florida more times than I have!

We generally don't allow Charlie near the iPad but needs must when it comes to a long haul flight... I will be doing anything to keep him entertained!

And good news, our stroller fan is in a enclosed case!

Ah 2016... the year we became friends, it will always hold a special place in my heart

And fear not there is a McDonalds close by (this is top criteria when booking a villa of course!)

Yes we loved how fresh and modern it was, most unusual for villas in Orlando. Definitely a major selling point, particularly as I think we will be having much more villa time this trip than in previous years!

PS getting him his own seat is worth every penny

Ah, you must be so excited to be taking Charlie on his first trip to Florida!
We also don’t let our DS on the iPad, unless it’s on a flight and then he can fill his boots - not much else for them to do really! We flew to the Middle East a few times when he was small and he wouldn’t sleep, but would just zone out in front of a film which kept him quiet - fingers crossed it goes smoothly for you.

We’ll be arriving shortly after you leave, so will be reading along for lots of tips and ideas!
