As Dan has said above, BA117 arriving on the Saturday and BA174 departing on the following Saturday (arriving back to London on the Sunday).

We aim to be leaving JFK around 1100 on the Saturday.

Dan - In relation to the parks, it has to be done this way due to the opening times of them and to be able to fit the all in. Was a challenge getting this one together and this is why it will have the normal disclosure that this will be an intense trip without much break!!

Ahh - I should have known a transport planner wouldn't devise an itinerary like that unless he had to!

Would I be right in thinking that the reason for compounce and quassy on two separate days is for after park ert on boulderdash and wooden warrior?

That'll be tricky when the flight lands at 11:05 and we'll all have an airport to clear! ;)

My bad, the flight returns back to the UK on the Sunday!!!

I have a thing called baby brain at the moment which causes simple things to not make sense!

Also the time is a guesstimate but ensures all the rest of the group are there in advance of our arrival ;-) We can then roll straight away!

Oh and regarding payment - I was thinking I could do it in 3 installments- 1 about now, 1 after my next pay date (2 weeks), and 1 after the subsequent pay date (20th may) - but from the invite it looks like the final deadline is 15th may - can you confirm whether this is the case, or if the final payment on 20th may would be acceptible?

Many thanks

Oh - and how many have signed up so far?

Hello Paul,

Dianne from Aussieland here. When do we find out about the hotels we will be staying at ? I especially need to know:-

1. The hotel when we arrive at JFK airport
2. The last hotel at the end of our trip.?

I am coming on my own, I'll stay a few days earlier and leave a few days later, so I'd like to book before the hotel is full.

Ok, so I've been beavering away at my plans for the week after the trip.

So far I've got:

Saturday, after coney island and being dropped off at the airport (I'm guessing we'll finish at coney at about 2-3ish for the 7pm flight) I'm checking into a hotel for 1 night, and finding a spa somewhere to recharge.

Sunday, travel to ocean city for Pirates castaway and Gillians, on to wildwood for moreys piers (can all be done on public transport), then on to philadelphia for a few hours sleep.

Monday - nice and early to go on to hershey, back to New york in the evening (using amtrak-harisburg)

One day at sfga, one day doing keansburg and jenkinsons,

3 days sightseeing in new york - Statue of liberty, ESB, rockerfeller, central park / museums maybe some sort of cruise.

Fly back late on saturday.

Anyone like to join?
