Florida By Numbers

16 hours collectively spent on a plane.

1.5 hours waiting in a queue to get through customs at Orlando airport.

5 times that I almost burst into tears of happiness because I was in Disney World.

10 - the number of minutes between us arriving in Magic Kingdom and me buying a pair of Minnie Mouse ears.

7.00 - the time we got in a taxi for our first visit to Universal. Got to make the most of those early admission passes (thank you Virgin Holidays!)

2 visits to IHOP.

0 - the amount of garlic and herb dipping sauce that comes with a Dominos pizza in America. Heartbreaking.

1 - the number of days before I got sunburn.

3 attempts to finally catch the Main Street Electrical Parade at Disney. The first two times, it got rained off!

40 dollars approximately spent in total at Honeydukes. I just love Fizzing Whizbees!

9 postcards sent home.

5 rides on the Dragon Challenge rollercoaster at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. My favourite ride of the holiday, I think!

2 servings of frozen butterbeer each (yummy!)

30 minutes spent with the dolphins at Discovery Cove.

35 minutes - the longest time we queued for any ride at any park.

565 photos taken - and that's not counting the ones from Paul's camera!

And countless happy memories made. Best holiday ever!



  1. I love these sorts of posts! It sounds like you had an epic time and I'm only a tiny bit jealous *massive lie alert*. And of course you had to get Minnie ears, duh!

  2. I've never seen a post like this before but its really cool :D
    This makes me miss Florida so bad!


  3. Oh my goodness, I'm itching to go back to Orlando! I don't know why it's hit me so hard this month but I can't stop thinking about how fun it was and how badly I want to go back! I don't think I'll be able to afford it again so soon, but a 2016 trip might be on the cards...


    p.s. frozen Butterbeer truly is one of life's greatest pleasures.

  4. I'm dying to go back too! I don't know about you but it seemed the minute we got back, every other TV advert was one for Florida or Virgin Holidays. Definitely the best holiday I think I'll ever go on! x

  5. Yes! I kept seeing the adverts everywhere - and Universal Studios kept emailing me to let me know 'what I'm missing out on'! I've never had withdrawal symptoms from a holiday before, but Orlando got under my skin.



Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I read and appreciate every single one!
