Orlando must do preparations and planning !

I am off to Orlando ,Florida soon  well August in fact though I have been there three times before  * seem a bit of a show off don't ! Anyway even though I have been there three times before and done the parks and several times and other attractions these were done at various parts of our family life. I do believe that each time you go it is magical.

 It been five years since we were last there so this has allowed Orlando, Florida to get bigger and better as that what Orlando,Florida does.

Florida theme parks get bigger and better.

One of the first things is finding my American Currency as we find it fun is tracking good old George Washington , I suspect you are a little puzzled at this stage in proceedings.Where's George? is a website that tracks the natural geographic circulation of American paper money. I know there will be though who scream you don't deface money but quite frankly the American Secret Service have better things to do .

I shall always be brushing up on the visa regulations which again have changed since I have gone when I last went you filled out the visa waver form on the plane

Looking around for the best travel policy

Checking out the prices on light weight suitcase I don't want to get stung like I did last times when we seemed to bring back the entire contents of the Disney toy shop.

I will also make sure that my big big handbag is clear and this doesn't count with the hand luggage allowance and you'll be amazed what you can shove fit in there untidily neatly.  I will be packing a set of clothes in every ones hand luggage as havens forbid the plane is delayed and I'll have nothing to wear excepting a grinning Mickey Mouse T-shirt circa 2008.

Start buying clothes and packing them I am a stickler for getting my case organised.

Order the photo service from Disney I picked this tip up from as most of my previous Disney pictures went  up in a puff of smoke and this made me very sad as they won't backed up in any way and least this time I will have our memories backed up on a CD and on my separate storage device.

Having fun in Orlando Florida

I also must start my Theme park planning  as so much as changed such I was there 5 years ago .. We really want to go to Universal Studies and see the New Harry Potter World.

I have friends who are going with young children this year as my child is not so little now you can pick up some great tips on how to cope with Disney with little kids here 

It's always best to plan what you'd like to do in Orlando, so I find its so helpful to look at these tips for help it makes my time in Orlando so much more time worthy.


  1. make sure your use the official ESTA website $14 pp

  2. Oooh we are going to Florida in November. Like you we have been before, I have been 4 times but this will be the first time with the kiddiwinks! So excited!!

  3. I hope that you have a brilliant time, and thank you for including the links to my posts! I'd really recommend Harry Potter World and I hope that you get to visit. Yes, as Lisa says, definitely make sure that you use the official ESTA website, there are lots of dodgy ones out there that will charge you a lot more money.

  4. Check the weight of your case the day before you are due to leave Florida. If you are over weight POST items back, maybe clothes you don't wear often but nothing valuable. Thats likely to cost you much less than excess baggage fees.
