Since discovering The Gallery at the Odeon cinema, I find it hard to watch a long film (2 hours or longer) without sitting up there. It’s not the cheapest option, so we only sit up there when there’s a good film out such as the new Star Wars films or Avengers or a film we have been wanting to see for a while.

This has to be my favourite way to watch any film, our most recent visit wasn’t the best however there wasn’t anything that would stop me from going up there again.

So this is not our first time to Alton Towers (as you can imagine), however it was our first time seeing the all new Wicker Man ride that they had to offer.

It has been a good 2 or 3 years since we last stepped foot into Alton Towers, though not a lot has changed. Alton Towers has a lot to offer, if you don’t like rides but still want to go when all of your friends do then don’t worry. Alton Towers has wonderful gardens that you can go walking through! The gardens are stunning and are located in the middle of the park.

It’s annoying when you have a free weekend and want to go out but you’re not sure where to go. We get this sometimes, where we try our hardest to think of new places to go to, or things to do and we resort to Google. But sometimes even Google doesn’t really help us.

So we’ve created a list of places in the Northwest of England where we enjoy going, or resort to when we have no-where else to go. So if you’re bored or want to go somewhere new, try out these places. We have visited all of the places on this list so if there are any questions feel free to ask us!

This day should be packing, checking out of the hotel, feeling like you’ve forgotten something and heading for the airport.

Well we did our packing 2 days before, because we knew the night before we would be to tired. So it was just a case of putting in the last bits like clothes we’d worn, make up, brushes, toiletries etc. Then do a scan of the place to make sure we have everything, and leave a final tip for housekeeping (we put all the drinks and stuff we had left that hadn’t been opened in a pile on the dining room table along with a cash tip).

The Sheraton Vistana Villages – International Drive, (not to be confused with the Sheraton Vistana Resort) is where we decided to stay for our 2 week trip to Orlando. This is a large villa complex located on international drive, midway between both the Disney and Universal theme parks.

The drive from Orlando International Airport (MCO) took about 30 minutes, and the route is fairly straight forward. You will most likely go via a toll road, but this wasn’t a problem as our Alamo car rental included the Sunpass facility.

Better late than never with a blog post? Due to it being at the end of the holiday this post comes a couple of days late. Currently I don’t know what day or time my body clock is on, but I do know this was an amazing and super fun day!!

The only park we didn’t make it to on day 13 was Epcot, but we also didn’t actually plan to go to so many parks. It just sort of happened, but it was a great way to bring this holiday to a close.

This was supposed to be a relaxing day where we did nothing. Also our bodies are starting to get tired now, and our feet are getting achy from all this constant walking and running around. Nevertheless we booked a couple of fast passes for Magic Kingdom just in case.

We got up, but we woke up later than normal, as we needed this lie-in! We got ready as usual and went to Magic Kingdom for the final time. Since we had fast passes booked we went for those rides, but started towards the end of our first fast pass.
