Disney World | plan with me

Friday, 29 January 2016


To say I'm excited about this year is a spectacular understatement. After a couple of years of hinting begging, my husband has finally given in and agreed to a holiday in Florida.

It's our tenth wedding anniversary this year, so we'd always intended to go on a special holiday in 2016. I think Dan was leaning more towards a fortnight all inclusive in the Maldives... which, don't get me wrong, would be incredible... hmmm is it too late to change my mind!?

We got married in America and haven't been back since, so it'll be lovely to go this year to celebrate our anniversary. Plus, Dylan and Meryn are the perfect age now to really get the most out of a holiday to Orlando. Ayden will be three, which is a little young to remember everything and go on all the rides, but I know he'll have the most wonderful time too.

So, I'm milking this for all it's worth to get every last second of excitement and build-up before we go. Any excuse to research, plan and work myself up into an over-excited mess! I've read blogs, subscribed to YouTube channels, made lists, bought myself a notebook. It's on!

If you're planning a trip to Disney World, I hope you'll enjoy my videos and find them useful for your own trip. If you've been before and have some tips to share, please do leave them in the comments section below. I really would love to hear them. 

I hope you enjoy the first of my Disney World plan with me videos. If there are any particular subjects you would like me to look into, please let me know.

  8. We love Disney and went last year and already trying to save for the next holiday. I found the following really useful. There is a site called undercover tourist that gives you an idea of how busy the parks are on each day, so you can plan your trip going to the quieter parks. Then make the use of the prebookable fast passes you can book 60 days in advance as you're in a Disney resort. You'll have an amazing time. x

  9. Oh my gosh, this is so exciting. Disney World... woo hoo! I am very envious. Enjoy your planning. That is always part of the fun. And a trip to Disney World is always so much better when you have done lots of planning. I went there as a teen with my parents and I would love to take Little Miss H. It is my tenth wedding anniversary in 2018. Maybe I need to start campaigning now. Hugs Lucy xxxx

  10. I'm a big holiday planner and I've been to Orlando a number of times. We love Universal and IOA, as my son is 19 he's too old for Disney. Some great sites for planning are The Dibb, Visit Orlando, Orlando Informer website and the Orlando Time Facebook page. Looking forward to seeing your videos!

  18. How exciting! I do love Florida though have never been to Disney but I've read other posts and there seems so much to do even for littler ones. Mini Travellers and Five Adventurers have both blogged about it, I think.

  19. Hope you enjoy the build up and trip. You should check out Michelle's posts over at Purple Pumpkin Blog. She has a wealth of information from her various visits.

    Disney isn't me at all, and apart from the rides, it's not somewhere I aspire to visit. Thankfully N isn't into Disney either and the OH never wants to go on holiday, so there's little chance of being asked to go.

  20. Sounds like its going to be a brilliant trip especially with all the planning you are putting in. We will like to take ours when they are old enough although i am not sure of the best age as such! Look forward to hearing more about your discoveries. x
