It sounds like a great trip! We flew into Tampa just over two weeks ago and immigration was pretty quick to get through, much better than Orlando

What an amazing pre trip report, good to hear about the upgrade to The Beech Club after the issues at SSR.😎

I'm glad it went smoothly for you. I'm hoping for the same as I'm sure the kids will have us feeling a bit fragile after the flight

Thank you. It was a stressful couple of days but ended well... I still check MDE regularly in case there are any more surprises lurking!

I know the feeling! We were travelling with 9, 6 and nearly 2 year olds, we were waved very quickly through customs I think because we had two children crying by that point! Hopefully immigration will go smoothly for you, we were the only international flight there at that time so much easier than orlando

It looks like you're going to have an absolutely awesome once in a lifetime holiday...or is it the start of an obsession as it is for so many of us? I guess technically it's not your first Orlando holiday, but it is your first as a family.

I know what you mean about the temptations of the Dibb. I love it but I dread to think how much money I could have saved if I hadn't booked up bargains I discovered from dibb research! It seems like you have discovered the brilliant savings that can be made!

I'm so jealous about the beach club move! You lucky things, I'm sure this will be brilliant. You can walk to 2 parks and you have the lovely boardwalk on your doorstep and that amazing pool. The only problem is you only have a week, but I guess you will be grateful of the space in the villa after being crammed into one room.

Have fun making your ADR plans. I look forward to reading all about it.

Yes the dibb has a lot of answer for! I have to say though some of the tips I have picked up from it will, I think, really help us get the most out of the holiday.
I dont think it will be a one off but I certainly wont be able to afford to do it like this every year. I have no doubt I will want to take Benjamin back I a few years so already thinking 2021 or 2022 if we love it. Having said that I do feel I need to introduce them to cruising at some stage and not sure DCL would be able to tempt me away from royal Caribbean.
I really think we will be glad of the extra space after the first week although I dont think I will be chomping at the bit to get away as much as we would have been at SSR. It will probably spoil us for future trips!
Can we swap countdowns? Im slowly working my way through your pre trip report. Im still trying to pick up more tips from the experts.
