Short of getting the projector out to sit you down in front of 100’s of slides with an informative oral description for each, I thought I should post some of our honeymoon snaps for you to oogle over…
Richard and Kitten von Mew in their honeymoon outfits at Orlando Airport!
We left the wedding Blitz Ball in sheets of rain, bound for London to an airport hotel. After a few hours sleep we headed for the airport and found ourselves practising for the theme park queues as we checked our luggage in. Good old Virgin tried to sit us in completely different parts of the plane, but after a lot of persistence we managed to get a seat next to each other in economy without having to pay for an upgrade.
We got a great reaction from passengers about our Honeymoon outfits and cases, but I think the airport staff thought we were just trying to get a free upgrade and had come in fancy dress! The Orlando airport crew were completely different and people at the desk were even taking pictures on their phones!
Kitten by the Hogwarts Express at Island Of Adventure, Universal Studios
The Harry Potter world was the main thing I had been looking forward to in the theme parks and I literally shook with excitement as soon as I saw the gate leading into a replica of Hogsmeade. Complete with snow capped roofs, Owl Post and all the shops associated with the books and movies, I was in my element!!!

The snow was so realistic it was surreal to see everyone walking around in t-shirts and not jumpers!

Kitten next to the Back to the Future Delorean. Oh how I wish I was in a 1950’s prom dress for this photo!

Kitten and ‘Tyrannosaurus-Pex’ outside the Jurassic Park ride after getting soaked!
As well as Universal we went to Epcot, which hasn’t changed since I first went at age 11 and watched the fireworks over the lake. It rained rather a lot whilst we were away, but it would have been too hot without it!
Troll Hunter extraordinaire!
The Reef Restaurant at Epcot where we had a meal. It has a wall of glass so that you can see the huge aquarium, which is full of sharks, fish and sea turtles!

Mr and Mrs Mew at their Polynesian Resort honeymoon hotel for the 1st week of their stay!
Lazing in a hammock on the Polynesian Resort beach
The tropical landscaping of the hotel was stunning! We love Tiki!
The gorgeous foyer of the hotel. Could have spent all day in there alone!
Mr Mew at Downtown Disney….yup, raining again!
In the 100 Acre Wood, we stumbled on an all you can eat buffet… Crazily enough everyone kept asking whether I was a Lucille Ball lookalike…
“Mr De-Mille, I’m ready for my closeup…and bring that balloon lady back, she promised me a poodle damn it!”
Despicable Mew…”He’s so fluffy!!!”
We were lucky enough to be some of the testers for the new Despicable Me 3D ride, which opens in a month. It was amaaaaazing!
Richard was determined to test every weird dessert in the buffet. I said he would be Winnie the Poohing like a Teletubby, but it didn’t listen.
Richard and I met up with our close friends Stephanie and Don in the 2nd week, who took us to some amazing places!!!
Kitten, Don and Stephanie Pitchers!
Fantasy of Flight is well worth a visit! Created by Kermit, they collect and restore propeller planes. We got a tour of the areas that they restore different pieces, their collection of original WWII engines still in the crates and got to meet Kermit himself after he demonstrated his flying abilities in one of his favourite planes.

Mickey Mouse Pylon, just the one, but thought it was a great idea. Imagine the bubbles you could make with this if you had enough washing up liquid!!!
