Charlie has grown so much since DLP! Cant wait to read about his first WDW experience! I bet he will adore it!

Your villa looks amazing and that pool looks so lush too!

Excited to follow your plans!

Xxx
I can't believe how much he has changed looking back at the photos from DLP! He is going to be so different come us actually going on this trip!

Thank you for joining me... you of course had no choice! xxx

Having the grandparents on hand will definitely be helpful too
We booked the villa through HomeAway, it was a complete random find whilst searching complexes in Kissimmee and the reviews all seem good!

Storey Lakes looks amazing, brand spanking new villa and that water park. Wow!
Can't wait to read more
Aww thank you so much, he is rather yummy (which is lucky as he is also a very cheeky little monkey too!)

I'm so excited to stay at Story Lake, the photos are just stunning!

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.
