Today the money was paid.
Thanks to Amelia's Project we are going on a family holiday that will create memories forever.
During the month of October we will be staying at the best places we could find and doing the most amazing things.
Many of you have been very interested in WHERE we have chosen to stay, so I will now give you some idea of our Itinery (with direct links to the accomodation sites !!!).
Personally I had a very firm idea of what I wanted from the hotels and overall we are very excited by our final choices........
1. Anaheim (Los Angeles, America)
9 nights at The Hyatt Regency in Orange County.
It has a separate bedroom to the living area (1 bedroom suite) and a shuttle bus to Disneyland every 30 minutes that is wheelchair accessible.

From here we plan to go to Disneyland, Downtown Disney, Universal Studio's and shop. Hopefully there will also be a day trip to San Diego for Sea World and/or the Zoo.
2. Las Vegas (America)
4 nights at The MGM Grand SIGNATURE Hotel.
This is not on "The Strip" but is one of the only hotels which has no casino or x-rated venue. The rooms are massive (twice the size of Anaheim) and there is a monrail directly outside to take us the 3 minutes to the strip. Our room is all in one and called a "balcony room".

I have also been researching activities for the kids while there. It is now not only a place for adults but a HUGE place for kids !!!!!

And finally Waikiki, Hawaii.
All the hotels I enquired about were already booked out.....except this one.
I think we definately saved the best till last.
The main picture on the first page of the website will be OUR room........
See what you think.

As I walked out of the Travel Agency today I felt a massive wave of relief and excitement.
It is done.
You wanted us to do this and we are doing it.
Thank you so very much.
