    Massive congratulations.

    I did the CRP program back in 2009-2010 and was life changing for me. Loved every minut of it and while your there for a year, the time goes way too quickly

    Hi, everyone! :wave:

    Quick update! So today I hit 19 days until I fly :earseek:

    It is becoming very real for me now. Yesterday I did the last thing I needed to do, which was to choose my preferences for my Disney housing!

    My mum is also moving while I'm away, so not only am I packing for Orlando, but I'm also trying to pack up all of my belongings in my room ready for that!

    I've started my Bucket List too, which is exciting!

    :tinker:

    Congatulations, me and Mrs. Tony111 will be there during the back end of November, there will be no point bringing you any Cadbury's chocolate as you won't have been there long enough to eat your own supply...........am I right?
