N.Y.C- gotta love the Big Apple!

An “off the cuff” suggestion about making a detour when planning our Disney/ Orlando trip for 2017 to New York City wasn´t actually as crazy an idea as you would think.

4 Nights AFTER 2 weeks Staying at Walt Disney World, Florida, flying from MCO to JFK, and the kids didn´t realise what we were upto.

EVERYTHING was planned. And most, booked.
