I remember going when the castle looked like that - I too have photos in my archives somewhere! I also remember staying at the Econolodge Hawaiian Maingate I agree nothing Hawaiian about it! I feel I may be of a similar age having just had my last 40s birthday. I also had my 13th trip there in August... Sounds like you have a great trip to look forward to. Mmmmm wonder if it will be your last

Just subscribed to your pre trippie. I've started planning our next trip for September 2020, and it's definitely our last one! Although as Dd reminds us the last 3 or 4 have been 'the last time' and yes she still comes with us, along with her partner. Dh wouldn't have it any other way, she's certainly a Daddy's girl.

Yes, about the same age. My last birthday in my 40's is fast approaching

Update

So, things have progressed since my first post.

We decided to book flights with BA, from Glasgow via Gatwick. Got a great price for PE, but the dates were slightly different in that we now had an extra 3 days So, we're now going to 10 days, not a week as originally planned.
The Virgin flights were way more than I had intended paying anyway, so think I made the right choice.

Weeks went by after booking the flights, and I kept thinking I really must phone Disney and change our hotel dates... and when I did, as you can imagine near the end of the free dining offer, the Beach Club wasn't available for our extra 3 days. PANIC! I must say at this point how patient and helpful the cast members are that work in the call centre... they really do take their time and try and help you. The only options open to us in Deluxe hotels were Grand Floridian, Beach Club Club Level, or Animal Kingdom Lodge. I even asked about OKW and SSR, but there was no availability. So, after much discussion, and another 2 calls, just to make sure they were not making a mistake, we decided on the Grand Floridian. I am excited about staying at a monorail resort, but we really wanted the Beach Club because its so close to Epcot, and Food and Wine will be on... but hey ho, I'm sure the GF will be just fab!
We still have Deluxe Dining... so we can eat at the GF Cafe every morning for breakfast (one of my favs) We also love Narcossee's.

Just counting down now to ADR day
