Aaaaand another. :D

The holiday balance is down to £1300 now, with the remaining balance on the tickets at £530.

£1830 left to pay in total, £1147 paid so far. :)

I'm going to start sorting out ADR's again soon. There are so many fantastic places to eat I'm having trouble trying to decide which ones to get rid of. :(

I also need to be clever about when I eat where, as I will be able to book 10 days of ADR's on the first day (another bonus of staying in a Disney Resort) so I may try to book the CRT first on day 5 or something, book the hardest ones first at whatever days they are available, and then book the ones that are not so hard to book, working around the difficult ones.

38.6% of the way there now! With over 11 months to go! :D

Little bit more off.

Another £20 off the tickets today, making the remaining £530, and £1350 for the holiday, totalling £1880 left to pay! £1097 paid to date. :D

One more down...

I wanted to round it up today, so paid £69 towards the holiday!

I now owe £1900 in total, £1350 for the holiday and £550 for the tickets. I've so far paid £1077!

So just over 36% paid for now! I must say I'm very proud of myself.

I've passed the 1k mark!! I have paid £1008 now. Yes!

It's surprised me that I'm still so excited about going. It'll only get worse the closer we are to leaving. :D

A third of the way there!

I now have £1992 left to pay, £573 for the tickets, and £1419 for the holiday!

If, by some miracle, I can pay £50 for the holiday, and £20 for the tickets, I can be paid by my birthday! What a gift that would be, knowing everything is paid for!

Not that I'll be able to, but hey, I can dream!

Another payment. :D

I've paid off some money towards the holiday and tickets today. I now owe £2067!

So far, I've paid off £910!!!!!

Which is over 30%!

I should be getting a little extra money every week from the ex, so should be a third of the way there in no time. And I still have a year left until we go!

A few more tickers!

Got to add...

My ticker, to follow how much I've paid so far, and how much is left.

With 52 weeks to go exactly today, 40 weeks until the holiday payment deadline, and 46 weeks until the tickets have to be paid, I am nearly a third of the way there! 28.55% to be exact!

That's the total cost, not including spending money and ADR's (which will be paid for with spending money).

Not bad considering I only booked at the end of August! Only 7 weeks ago.

If I keep this up, I will still be fully paid up by the end of April! Leaving 23 weeks to go until we're in Orlando.

I just hope I can get the ADR's I want. On the 9th of April (180 till we leave) I will have to ring at exactly 12pm (7am their time when they open) and try to book all ADR's in the first 10 days asap. Apparently, by 12:05pm. all booking for 180 days in advance will be taken. :S

If I don't get what I want then, I should ring back at quarter past, in case some people have had a few people ring for the same booking and cancelled the double bookings they no longer need.

If I still don't get the one I want, I should just keep trying, hoping for a cancellation.

One good thing is, because I'm staying in a Disney Resort, I can not only book 180 days in advance, but also for the next 10 days. So if I go with a restuarant that's not too difficult to get into on the first day, I should be able to book the ones that are really hard to get (Cinderella's castle for example) for a few days later.

Things may change by then though, and there is talk of being able to book online. I'm not sure how that would work, what with thousands of people trying to book for the same day.

One year to go!!!!!

364 days to go!!!!! This time next year, I will (hopefully without delays) have just landed in Orlando. Probably on the airport transfer, getting ready to step foot into POP Century for the first time!

I can't wait!!!!!
