Small Updates

Just thought I'd let you all know where I'm up to when it comes to my next big holiday in Feb/March of next year.

For those who don't know, we're having a Destination wedding at Walt Disney World in Florida, followed by our Honeymoon in Puerto Morelos, Mexico.

Last night I booked our accommodation at the Port Orleans Riverside Resort from Feb 23rd to March 5th. Because of the wedding we get a slight discount on our rooms, but I'm hoping for a better rate to come out some time in November, this at least secures our room for us.

I've contacted 3 separate travel agents to see what they can do for me when it comes to booking the Honeymoon, so far only Escape Travel has been able to get back to me... I've been waiting a couple of weeks now for a response and I don't think any more are coming...

I'm going to do a bit more research before booking the honeymoon, as we wanted 10 days in Mexico and direct flights there, however Delta only do direct flights on Saturdays, which would only give us 7 days, JetBlue also do direct flights, but they haven't released them for March yet, which is a real pain!

Also, on a slight side note, we went dress shopping in Newcaslte over the weekend. We shopped for my wedding dress at Belles & Beaux, I was told that they were quite pushy here, but I didn't find that at all, they were helpful and attentive. We went bridesmaid dress shopping and Mother of the bride shopping at a shop called Shazzam By The Lake over in Toronto, they were also very friendly and helpful.

We had lunch on Honeysuckle Drive at a restaurant called Twist. The service was a little slow, but the food was great and well priced. Usually when I eat on Honeysuckle Drive I eat at a Japanese restaurant called Nagisa, which is an awesome place! However we had some people with us who don't like Sushi, so Twist was safer.
