Can't see a thread for this yet.

Who's coming then?

I'm fully booked up as of last night.

I got the 4 Days pass for Celebration Orlando.
Hotel Booked. No flight yet.
I also want to go a couple of days to 2 of the 4 Disney parks, and another 2 days for Universal Resort.

I'm looking to go.....would be good if we could try and get booked into the same hotel where possible.

Jason, can you post your hotel details?

I'll probably go for a week as I'll want to visit the outlets and at least Epcot while i'm there (I'm addicted to the Mission Space ride!!!)
Put Captain Solo in the cargo hold!

Ive booked through skyscanner.com for flights. Cost me £377 for a direct flight from Gatwick on Tuesday 11th, returning via Detroit to Heathrow on Monday 17th.

Planning on hitting Disneyland or similar on Wednesday 12th.

Am staying at the Orlando Metropolitan resort. Think Rich has booked there too. That was £377/$492 for 6 nights with approx $90 of additional tax and surcharge for a twin room with Queen beds through booking.com. WIll be half that if you share. No money needed up front for the hotel and can be cancelled up until the day before arrival without incurring costs. Has a shuttle bus to Disney/Universal/Sea World. airportshuttles.com can be booked for a return from MCO Orlando Airport to orlando Met for $40. Haven't booked that yet.

A 4 day pass to celebration is $160 with tax payable up front. I also bought 2 lanyards and a guide so paid $200.

cheers Jason

We were already going the following weekend for the RunDisney Star Wars Dark Side Challenge (a Half Marathon & 10k over 2 days) and managed to get Celebration VIP tickets again but starting to dread it a bit after how knackered we were after this one!

All the advice says we should rest the weekend before :lol: At least I will have a bit of an idea of what to expect this time

I doubt that Star Wars land will be completed by then, just look at Avatar Land they started construction in 2014 and they are hoping to open that in 2017.

Flights sorted as well, great deals at the moment, got return flights, direct from Gatwick to Orlando with Virgin Atlantic for £374 via netflights.com.
Cheaper than getting the train to Newcastle and back !!!!! :-)

What dates did you use Andy?
Looking for: A fair priced ungraded trilogo Yak Face MOC (Condition is not so important - no cracked bubbles or broken seals though)

Flying out on the 11th and back on the 18th, Tuesday to Tuesday. Expedia had the same flights but they were around 50 quid dearer. I think it fluctuates as the cheapest direct flights I'd seen before were around the 600 qiid mark. Probably worthwhile plugging it in evey day and when a deal pops up, book it.
