No driving, no Dd, no Disney, no worries. January 2020

Now we are paid off (well the flights and hotel) I thought I would start a pre trip report.
We are myself, Julie and Matt

Its a belated 40th celebration for Matt. His birthday is in July but its also Dds 18th 3 days before him so she has stole his thunder this year. We dont want to visit in the summer and are dropping Dd off at uni in Sept and want to make sure shes settled so thats why we decided on January 2020.
We fly from Gatwick on 10th with BA and travel home 20th. We are staying at The Enclave Suites with one night at RPR.
I hate driving, Matt drives but he just fancies a break from it as he drives to work everyday. So no hire car, it will be Uber/I Trolley/walking.
We are getting to Gatwick by National Express, did look at the train but dont fancy the underground with big cases.
This may be some peoples idea of hell but its perfect for me. Plus it was 41 return for both of us, it would be double that just for petrol.
We are staying at Travelodge Central 9th, 28 for the night. We will get a shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel and back again in the morning.
Not doing Disney parks but have a monorail pub crawl (thanks to a stace&tink trip report) and Disney Springs/Boardwalk planned.
Tickets have been the biggest headache. We have changed our minds so many times.
We have finally gone for the Universal explorer 3 park.
I put a deposit on these with ATD as it the same price as the 2 park tickets.
Im waiting for an Expedia deal for one day Seaworld tickets that will be valid for our dates.
