Florida 2015: 1 Day To Go

30 August 2015

After almost eleven months of planning, my Florida holiday is just around the corner. Tomorrow I'll be getting ready to head up to Manchester Airport, before my flight departs on Tuesday morning. My bags are (almost) packed, my documents are organised, and I can't wait to spend ten nights in the happiest place on earth. There were a couple of last minute dramas (my sister was no longer able to join me, but my other sister has stepped in to her place), but on September 1st I'm off to spend 3 nights at the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal followed by seven nights at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, and I can't wait. 

Here's the recap of everything that we've done to prepare, in case you're looking to book an Orlando holiday:

What's Done So Far:
  • Booked and paid for the holiday.
  • Checked in to our Disney hotel online and personalised our magic bands.
  • Progressed with my holiday diet - over five stone down.
  • Finished my holiday shopping and packed my luggage.
  • Booked and paid for airport parking/security fast track etc.
  • Selected seats on our flights.
  • Booked our ADR's and FP+ for Disney.
  • Purchased Memory Maker.
  • Updated our ESTA's.
  • Purchased travel insurance.
  • Printed and organised our documents.
What's Left To Do:
  • Online check-in for our flight (tomorrow morning).
  • Relax and enjoy every second of it.
I've managed to schedule some blog posts for while I'm away, sticking to my normal Wednesday and Sunday posting schedule, but for the whole of September my blog will be fairly Florida themed, so if that's not your thing then I can only apologise now. If you want to keep up with my travels as they happen then make sure to follow me on Instagram or Twitter (@josieowenx). It's holiday time!


  1. The big pre-travel to do list is something I just worked through and it can be so, so stressful! It's good to see you've gotten most of it done already. x


  2. Have an amazing time and I'll be stalking you on Twitter and Instagram!!
