      Yep mate there for 5 days for the kids but I want to go to the ESPN store and The Space Shuttle joint.

      I used to go every year when the kids were young. Fantastic place for the kids (and adults that still like to act like kids). Nearly always went in the winter though as I hate it when it's too hot. Home from home for you I suppose... heat, crocs and snakes :)

      Don't forget the Kangaroos, S@int!  ;D


      Epcot Center and Cape Canaveral?

      I went there almost 3 decades ago + Disney World, Sea World and Bush Gardens.

      Great fun for the kids.

      Never seen since a super-dooper size portion of McDonald's fries so f**king big, along with a bucket of coke. No wonder they're all fat!   :D





      Yeah I think their the names of the shuttle places, will know for sure when I get there.  :D

      Can't f**king wait mate.

      Marvelous. Can you hook him up with some green then? :)

      He should fly through Denver, then he could buy it legally for himself. ;D

      Going for a weekend break to London, later today. We have tickets for the Epsom Derby tomorrow. Having a boat trip along the Thames later on & obviously a few beers, should be fun !

      Hope the weather is decent for you - heard it's been 'grim down south' this past week.

      Hope you back some winners at the races!

      4 days left till me and the family head off to Hawaii for 10 days, Calgary for 2 weeks then Orlando for 6 days. Can't f**king wait, the weather here in Melbourne is f**king miserable. Looking forward to working on my tan.  ;D

      Will try to get on here to see if there's any news but if I don't, have a good rest of the off season all and I'll be back in time for the first week of the new Season.

      I am looking forward to going on my holiday. In 3 days I will drive to Columbus, OH to see Real Madrid vs PSG. After that I am going to spend a couple of days exploring the city of Columbus. Then Saturday I drive to St. Louis, MO to hang out with the Reds family there and see LFC vs AS Roma. Day after the game, I will drive home.

      It's great mate - you'll love it.

      Really diverse and - I thought - very reasonable. Try 'Mian' for good Chinese / Oriental Food and Los Toreros just off La's Ramblas for quality, reasonable Tapas.

      Have always wanted to go to Mauritius more for the fishing than anything else .

      Yea that's Disney's booking site, probably your best bet for places to stay that are affiliated with Disney. I've been wanting to stay at the Bay Lake Towers, it's right beside Magic Kingdom, right on a monorail stop so you can get to any of the parks pretty easily I believe. It's just been a bit out of my preferred price range. It looks fantastic though. Truth be told, because I travel a good deal for work and stay exclusively in Hilton properties, I usually stay at a Hilton resort or hotel when I'm up there because I can use points. We stay either at the DoubleTree by Downtown Disney, the Lake Buena Vista Hilton (near Downtown Disney) or the Hilton Bonnet Creek (http://www.hiltonbonnetcreek.com/).

      The Bonnet Creek doesn't have villas that I know of, standard hotel rooms for the most part, they may have suites...but they have a nice pool with a water slide and a lazy river. Also a nice golf course right there (shared with the Waldorf Astoria). I've played it...it's tough but a nice course all the same). The Bonnet creek has a complimentary shuttle to the parks but it's kind of secluded about a 10 minute drive from Downtown Disney area.

      Now across the street is the Wyndham Bonnet Creek Resort (http://www.wyndhambonnetcreek.com/). They have condo type amenities for familes, at least a couple resort type pools with water features for the kids (a big pirate ship at one), it sits around a big lake, I stayed there once, it was nice, it's fairly new (last 4 or 5 years it was built) so that's another option.

      I'll tell you, the Disney properties are nice but they are EXPENSIVE. Similar accomodations are usually much cheaper off property. It just depends on how much time you are going to be spending at the parks as to whether it's worth it to stay on property in my opinion. In fact I don't think I've ever stayed a a Disney property to be honest. Usually the folks that stay on property are going to be hitting the parks everyday all day long. If you don't think that's going to be you and your group, you may want to also look at some of the off property resorts.

      I wouldn't count out Epcot based on what I said, it's fine for the most part during the day, it just gets crowded at night during the food and wine festival. I thought I remembered you having smaller kids...my boys (12 and 10) would do ok but man with the crowds at night, it's a pain to keep track of tiny ones.


      I'd love to be able to pop up and meet up, I'll have to see how my work schedule is panning out...that yime of year starts my busy travel season. My boy has a cross country race at Disney sometime in Oct...there's a chance that would overlap with when you are going to be there. When you know your dates I can see if it overlaps. As you can probably tell we spend enough time up there that I could go on and on. ;D

      I guess the bottom line is...if you are going to be doing Disney parks every day, it probably makes sense to consider Disney Resorts, but if you think you'll be spending as much or more time NOT at the Disney parks then you may want to consider other locations.

      Really you probably want to be in the Downtown Disney/Lake Buena Vista area (near parks) or you may want to be nearer International Drive which is a larger area, not as near the parks but near all kinds of other tourist areas including SeaWorld and to an extent, Universal Studios (Harry Potter world).

      There are so many hotel rooms in that city, I'd be surprised if there aren't more rooms there than any other city in the world...it's seriously scary how many places there are to stay.

       




      Glad I swerved this. I would have flew out last Wednesday.

      Our friends got married today. Well, at least they were meant to have done.

      Gutted for them. What's it like there mate?

      Down my way not too bad, but I'm on the West coast. East coast is going to get hammered later tonight. Orlando could see Hurricane force winds. Likely there will be huge power outages....they are saying 2.5 million people without power out of a state of 20 million.

      Disneyworld closes in 15 minutes and will be closed tomorrow, only 4th time in their history they have shut down.

      Good thing you didn't make the trip bud.

      No sh*t mate. Feeling for my friends and their families who are there though. I worry about the groom's brother if I'm being honest. He's mad. I've got absolutely no doubt he will want to see more of the hurricane than is healthy.

      To put it into context he has gone up and down balconies, room to room, on holiday in Benidorm and wanted to feed a lion a Wotsit through the window of my car at Knowsley Safari Park once. I was glad our two kids were in the back as me reminding him of that is the only thing that stopped him.

      I could write a book on him. Let's hope he is feeling like he wants to listen.

      Haiti looks like it took the brunt of that storm. 

      It puts it into context when our own country grinds to a halt when we get more than an inch of snow.
