Today the Hollywood studios were on the program. After a quiet start in our house, we went on the road. Once again the car was just the easiest. And so we walked around ten o’clock the park. When checking bags still laughed. Samantha the man’s bag was checked to search her purse and seeking. I thought, where he is now looking to do. But that question was quickly answered when he asked Samantha where she had hidden it well pixie dust! Samantha on her cheeks flushed it. Especially when he told his colleagues that he had a girl who had a bag of Pixie Dust!

And then you’re on vacation and wake up at half past six … But if your alarm clock for charity, today we have a ‘Storybook Princess Breakfast’ in Epcot in Akershus in Norway! The children would really like dressing up as Cinderella and Prince Charming. So we consciously made an early appointment, so it is not so hot in the park.

By what getut and procrastination of the children, you will have your own thinking and tackle things together … much easier when mom does … we left a little on the late side towards Epcot. Because we resort guests are we saved $ 14, – for parking costs. that’s easy money! We were really close to the entrance of the park parking, so totally super!

Day 10: Back to the Magic!

August 2nd, 2010 · 3 Comments

We’re not going to contemplate all the bad things (bed, rest, a breakfast buffet not worth the name).

No, today we’re going to focus on fun things. Not because it hasn’t been fun so far, on the contrary. But starting today we’re adding some magic to the mix: We’re going ‘home’ to Orlando (or rather, Lake Buena Vista)!

We’re staying at the Old Key West Resort on Walt Disney World property. And all four of us are psyched!

Overdue for an update

February 25th, 2010 · Comments Off on Overdue for an update

It’s been a while since the last update, but not much is happening right now…

The Disney villa has been booked, all Table Service ADRs are made, car is rented (mid-size SUV from National through USA-reisen.de) en now we wait until hotel prices drop on Hotwire and/or Priceline…

Given the changed in the Flying Blue program (they now give level and award miles based on ticket class… Some give the normal 100% miles, others 75, 50, 25 or even 0% (!!!) of miles flown!) I am assuming this will be our last trip for a while… The chance of me gathering enough miles to be able to go again in 2 years seems very small to me at this time!

But anyway, we’ll ponder that later, for now we’ll focus on our upcoming trip!  🙂

Oh… There is one shadow cast over that: Yesterday Orca Tilikum  attacked one of the trainers in Seaworld and she died. It now seems like the victim is  Dawn Brancheau…
