Orlando 2017 – Day 10

Day 10 - Islands of Adventure We all woke relatively early this morning, showered and packed all our stuff and took our cases down to the concierge to keep for the day.


Orlando 2017 – Day 9

Day 9 - Universal Studios As part of my research before we left, I found out that if you book a one night stay in selected Universal hotels, you get Express Passes to BOTH Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure for BOTH days either side of your stay.


Orlando 2017 – Day 8

Day 8 - Discovery Cove Today was our long awaited Discovery Cove day. We had visited the park once before in 2005 when Hurricane Wilma hit which meant the park didn't open until 2pm and the conditions were horrific.


Orlando 2017 – Day 7

Day 7 - A mad day of park hopping! So, today was scheduled as a rest day but for various reasons, instead we decided to do a park hop to fit in some extras.


Orlando 2017 – Day 6

Day 6 - Magic Kingdom I'm not going to lie. Magic Kingdom has never been my favourite park and after seeing a lot of reviews on the It's Orlando Time Facebook page slating the crowds, I was kind of dreading our visit.


Orlando 2017 – Day 5

Day 5 - Aquatica None of us woke up until 8:45am and so didn't get to Aquatica until 10:15am but it was empty and so we parked right by the entrance.


Orlando 2017 – Day 4

Day 4 - Animal Kingdom - 31/10/17 I first set foot in Animal Kingdom in 2005 and I fell in love with the place. Since then, it has been my favourite Disney park and I couldn't wait to get back!


Orlando 2017 – Day 3

Day 3 - Sea World As Sea World didn't open until 10am, we had a later start and arrived as the park opened.

Our Holiday of a Lifetime – Orlando 2017

In October 2017, after counting down the days for over a year, we set off on our holiday of lifetime to Orlando. My motto on Disney holidays is "Go hard or go home!" and our type of holiday may not be for everyone but when it costs in excess of £10k, I want to squeeze out every last drop as who knows when we will be lucky enough to go again.
