Day 16: All Change / WDW-40, 2016

Day 16 of WDW-40, the latest of my Disney Trip Reports, is here!

I bet you thought I’d forgotten all about it hadn’t you? This particular trip report has taken me so long to write that we’ve actaully had another Walt Disney World holiday! A lot was going on in my personal life, and writing about our Disney trip in 2016 fell to the bottom of the pile.

But I do not like to have my trip reports left unfinished, so I am going to power through and get the final 15 days written. As for my 2017 report that will follow as soon as humanly possible!

If you haven’t read my pre-trip planning report yet, why not have a quick read now to bring you up to speed about who we are, and why this trip report is called WDW-40! You might also want to start reading from the beginning of the report!


There is nothing worse than feeling poorly when on holiday. I was losing my voice last night, which wasn’t a good sign, and woke up so groggy this morning. We were due to go to Universal Studios today with my brother and his girlfriend (who is now his wife, since I’ve taken forever to write this!) but I had to drop them a text to say I wasn’t up for it, and would catch up with them later, or potentially in a couple of days.

We had been picking them up in our car from their resort – All-Stars Movies – and they didn’t have a car. However, it kicked my bro up the backside and he went and hired one for a few days. This was good for us as it meant I didn’t have to feel pressured into driving them around when I was sick, and it meant we could all spend some time doing our own thing!

After lying in bed for the morning, feeling sorry for myself, hubby suggested that maybe being out in the sunshine would do me some good. I was inclined to agree with him. The rooms in Poly (and in general at the Walt Disney World Resorts we have stayed at before) are quite dark and being cooped up in a hotel room is not much fun.

Sadly, at this time I am unable to keep up with two blogs… but I didn’t want to let Disney Tips & Trip Reports go completely.

I do have plans going forward for this website, which includes bringing some of my Disney blogger friends on-board with their particular set of Disney knowledge! Once I have the plans all mapped out, I will fill you in on all the details!
