Countdown: 13 weeks to go – 13 tools I use for planning

I’m so glad I decided to write these countdown posts because it’s making the weeks fly by – I can’t believe we’re half way through June already. For this week’s post I thought it might be useful to tell you about some of the things I use when planning our trips. Some of these things are really obvious, but others you might not have tried so, without further ado, here goes…

Countdown: 14 weeks to go – 14 things I love about the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

14 weeks to go – that means we’re under the 100 day mark! I’d show you my double digit dance, but I want you to keep reading so thought it best to keep that scary image to myself.

In honour of Hagrid’s new ride officially opening at Islands of Adventure later this week, I thought I’d dedicate this countdown post to all things Harry Potter – like I needed an excuse to write a whole post about the Wizarding World!!

Countdown: 15 weeks to go – 15 restaurants we’re looking forward to eating at

15 weeks might still seem like a long way off, but it’s going so quickly now – I just hope it doesn’t start to slow down! If you’ve followed our blog you might know that we tend not to eat at expensive restaurants whilst we’re in Florida – we’re happy with cheap and cheerful as long as the food’s tasty. The 15 places on this list might not strictly be classed as restaurants, but we’re looking forward to paying them a visit anyway. In no particular order…

Countdown: 16 weeks to go – 16 characters we’re looking forward to seeing

These weeks seem to be flying by now, but there’s still a lot to organise (yay – you know how I love planning and organising!). For this week’s countdown I thought we’d look at the characters we’re most looking forward to seeing. If you’ve read some of our other posts you might know that we haven’t really done many meet and greets with characters – I often feel a bit awkward and as if maybe I should just leave it to the children, but this trip I’m hoping to forget about all that and just enjoy the magic! Once again, in no particular order, here goes…

Countdown: 17 weeks to go – 17 things we can’t wait to do again

Writing these countdown posts is definitely helping to make the time go quicker – I can’t believe I’m four posts in already! This week we’re looking at 17 things that we’re really looking forward to doing again, even though we’ve already experienced them. This was a really difficult list to create because we’re basically looking forward to everything! I’ve tried to narrow it down to some specific things though, so here goes…

Countdown: 18 weeks to go – 18 films that help get us in the Florida mood!

It’s getting closer! Now we’re properly in the countdown I thought I’d list some of the films we’ve watched or are planning to watch to get us into that Disney/Universal vibe. A lot of these we’ve seen before and are firm favourites, but others are all new to us. In no particular order…

Countdown: 19 weeks to go – 19 rides we’re most looking forward to

May the 4th be with you. Sorry, couldn’t resist! We’re another week closer to our big trip and getting more and more excited to get back and experience some of our favourite rides. This week’s countdown list is all about the rides we’re most excited for (believe me, it was VERY difficult to narrow this down). Some we’ve ridden before, others are going to be completely new to us. So without further ado, here we go…
