I know I usually go on about books (and I promise in this series of posts books will play a part book lovers!) but I need to scream from the highest heights of my virtual mountain - I'M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!!!!!
In my house we love Disney, me and the other half first visited back in 2003 on our honeymoon. We had never properly been to America before (I don't think a couple of hour layover at LAX counted) and instantly loved Orlando. We didn't do Disney but went to Sea World, Universal and Busch Gardens. We shopped, we ate, oh boy did we eat and we promised that we would come back.

Never thinking we would, I was happy when we were able to go back in 2005, again revisiting our old haunts. We loved the Disney films but just thought going to Disney World would be a waste on us twenty-somethings. Boy where we wrong!
We didn't go on holiday for 5 years, two babies, a new house and life got in the way but in 2010 we went back. This time we did Disney, we had our kids and my in-laws in tow and we loved it. Honestly why had we not been before?
The parks are huge, the whole place was just magical, my kids where in heaven and I was speechless with happiness.
That was the death knell for any other holiday spots, so far we have been 6 times to Orlando, 2003, 2005, 2010 then 2012, 2013 and 2014. We took a break this year to do some crazy saving but next year we are going back with a vengeance.
So Duff's Do Disney is going to follow my planning and basically I'll talk about everything. As we are in Scotland we have quite the journey to get to Orlando so I'll discuss how we do it, where we stay, where we like to eat, where we like to play and anything else I can think off. Plus there may be lots of silly hats, we love silly hats!

As a mainly book blog I also will be looking at some great Orlando planning books and books about Disney so my fellow book nerds won't be left out. But I understand Orlando isn't for everyone.
Anyway I love Orland and I hope you enjoy these posts and I'd love to hear from anybody who has tips and tricks for the happiest place on Earth!
