Elsie looks so adorable in all the photos, I love the ones of her posing on her own!! What a shame that Chef Mickeys didn't live up to expectations. Sounds like you had a brilliant trip overall though, can't wait to see your photopass photos xx

Shame that you had such a bad chef mickeys experience. Out of all our ADR's this is the one that Emily is looking forward to the most and I have also booked it for our last night. I really hope that was a one off??

Boo to Disney trips having to end!

I know why do good things have to come to an end.

I think the evening leading up to it didn't help. Waiting for buses after having the ease of the car and getting wet. We are going to go back so it's not completely put us off

February 14th - Departure day.

The day we had been dreading! It was still raining and it was cold. We didn't find out how cold until we checked all our clothes in with Virgin at Down Town Disney though!!!!

We were heading for Hollywood Studios today. Disney Junior live on stage was scheduled to re open the next day with a new show so we went to try our luck and see if they had any soft openings.

Our luck was in we were the first show of that day. I don't know if it was the first show ever but it was busy. The queue was huge and we were very lucky to get in.

Now I know a lot of you won't know who these characters are Princess Sofia, Doc McStuffin and Jake and the Neverland Pirates. These characters are a big deal in our family.







It was hard to get a good picture as you have to sit on the ground like the kids do. There is some standing but not a lot.

Elsie loved it though. She got to help pop bubbles, play in the snow, collect her gold doubloons and dance around. This was a huge hit with her and it was lovely to see her enjoy her self. A must do for us that is for sure.

After the show it was still very cold and wet. We were both hungry but wanted to eat in different places so I had a burger at ABC it was ok this plave is so hit and miss and Dave had Pizza at Pizza Planet. Pizza really doesn't bother me I go to Pizza hut and have pasta Yeah I am one of those lol!

Virgin had to text to say our flight was delayed an hour so when we went back to SSR we asked if they would change us. No because they might bring the flight time back. Though we were delayed because the air plane wont be here in time!

We walked over to Down Town Disney for one last time. No cookes of Dublin though. Bought our last few bits I got a jumper as it was so cold. Elsie fell asleep in her push chair for the last time (Probably ever) and we made our way back to wait for ME.

Back at SSR we used our last snack credits on some cheesy mickey biscuits and pez dispensers Elsie loves these.

We collected our hand luggage and I remembered I put trousers in there with Elsie's PJs yay we dont have to freeze any more.

ME was uneventful just fighting back the tears didn't want to go home.

Through security and we had a Burger King between us as our flight was now delayed 2 hours. Elsie found 2 new friends at the airport they played nicely together and wore each other out.

Finally on the flight. We warned that we would experience a lot of turbulence due to the bad weather. After take off the plane dropped a bit and it scared the .... out of me. Most people on the plane screamed and the air host/hostess shouted if every one was ok. This frightened Elsie as you can imagine a small 2 year old who doesnt know what is going on and doesnt understand when you explain it to her. She started crying and the man the other side of the aisle started shouting and swearing at me to shut Elsie up. I was so shocked that I started crying. He got out of his seat started shouting and swearing at the air hostess who was still sat with her lap belt on as the turbulence was that bad telling her to move him and his family. They were already in different seats to what they were allocated. It got so bad that the air hostess came and stood between us so he couldn't see me as he was trying to lean over shouting at me. Dave was so angry but knew not to say anything as he didn't want to make it worse.

The manager come over and said they shouldn't do this whilst the seat belt signs were on but they were frightened for us and moved us to three empty seats. Literally as soon as we got up Elsie stopped crying and we hadn't been sat for a even a few minutes and Elsie fell asleep.

Some of you may remember that I posted on the Community board just before we went that I wasn't copping with Terrible 2's and was worried about our holiday. Well after 2 weeks of seeing plenty of tantrums much worse then Elsie has ever had I felt so much better and a lot more confident as a mum again! After that I felt awful and cried pretty much the whole flight home! I am even tearing up now thinking about it.

The staff were amazing though and couldn't do enough for us. Some of the passengers that were sat around us come over and apologized for what we experienced. We had to right an incident report and some one phoned me a few days later to check we were ok. Really Virgin couldn't of been better we were really pleased with them.

After all the drama and we had all our bags we waited for the shuttle to collect us to take us back to the hotel where the car was parked. We also saw Karma at her best. Oh yes the man that made our journey so horrific his bag had got lost Thanks Karma.

We got the car filled it up with bags, got petrol and made our way home. I slept the entire trip as did Elsie. Dave slept on the flight so was ok to drive home even though he did moan he was lonely.

Back home an unpacked and now almost 6 weeks later I have finished my report

What a wonderful trip report! Sorry I have been out of town and had to rush to catch up - so many great photos - and again I LOVE the outfits. So glad Elsie wasn't ill for long and things ended on a healthy note for you. I've been baby sitting my baby niece who had a stomach bug and had to stay home from day care - so not fun for little one's to be ill.

Glad you enjoyed some fun shopping at Mall of Millenia and Carter's - LOL I am OFTEN in there stocking up on gifts for my niece. One of the things I enjoy about Orlando are the outlet shops.

What a stressful flight back (aack)!!! That is NO fun.

Thanks for writing and have fun dreaming your next adventure.
