How nice to Jon to get you the tickets on the military deal, I am very pleased you are going to be doing Disney again!
We were lucky with dates as we had both booked the first 2 weeks of October off well in advance to coincide with Edith's birthday. When we started looking for flights, I was amazed at how reasonable they were

Car hire shocked me a bit! I'm not sure why that's so cheap. The only thing we couldn't get a bargain price for was the Premier Inn, I think you have to book a few months in advance to get their 35 rooms now, it stung to pay 75!

Yes definitely come and say hi

Have you tried Alamo Brits or have you got a non cancelable booking?

Yeah we booked through Alamo Brits I've seen it drop by 10 since I booked in March, so I cancelled and rebooked. Still cost 349 for a full size for 14 nights! I've just checked again and it's 356 now, or 389 for a standard SUV. Not sure if if it's worth the upgrade for 40? We drive a ford focus at home, and have to drive to the airport, so if everything fits in there then I'm sure it will fit in the full size when we are at MCO!

An SUV would be nice though for the luxury ...

I think we paid about 389 for an intermediate SUV back in April for 14 nights so that price for a standard is pretty good still. Id pay the 40 tbh, but I like being in a big car over there as the roads terrify me!

I know! A childhood obsession lasting well into his 30's
