Great job Karen, I love your photos, and reading this is much more entertaining than watching "Greatest Goals of the Premier League"!! I need a holiday!

Took you long enough to get started!


I sense that you did NOT like Mickey's Fun Wheel of Death.....that can only mean that you went Silly Swinging on the Fun Wheel instead of just limiting yourself to the Silly Swings.


Looks like you are having an AWESOME time.

Glad you finally started your TR. Keeping the lynch mob at bay (read PIO) has been difficult.

Loving your witty obs and pics as usual.

22 hours!? Lucky, we only managed about 5 the first night waking up at 2 in the morning lol. The wheel of doom is the only ride I didn't completely enjoy, Bec however didn't have an issue. Can't wait to read more & see your final suitcase photo

Late to the party, but I'm here too . Can't wait to read more, even though I am disappointed with the lack of clown cars...
