TOP TIPS

Llanelli Star - - GET AWAY -

■ STAY SOME­WHERE HANDY: The Walt Dis­ney World Swan & Dol­phin is sit­u­ated in the heart of the Walt Dis­ney World Re­sort, with both Ep­cot and Hol­ly­wood Studios a 10-minute walk away. Fol­low­ing a $159 mil­lion ren­o­va­tion, it boasts top fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing five swim­ming pools, 17 places to dine, a karaoke bar, luxurious spa, gym, games room, gift shops, sports ac­tiv­i­ties and con­fer­ence spa­ces. What’s more, staying here en­ti­tles guests to Ex­tra Magic Hours in all Dis­ney parks, as well as on-site char­ac­ter din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences, free trans­port to all Dis­ney parks via boat or bus, and ad­vance tee times on the Dis­ney golf cour­ses.

■ IN­VEST IN FASTPASSES: You’re pushed for time and you don’t want to spend any of it queu­ing end­lessly at busy at­trac­tions. It’ll cost you more up­front but it’ll seem like the best idea you ever had amid the hus­tle and bus­tle of the busy theme parks.

■ AVOID THE RUSH: Becky’s trip be­gan with an overnight’s stay at the BLOC Hotel in the South Ter­mi­nal at Gatwick air­port. Just a short walk from the train sta­tion, BLOC has ev­ery­thing you need to re­lax be­fore jump­ing on your flight. Plus, when you book a room here, you also get a pass for the Pre­mium Se­cu­rity route at the busy air­port.
