The Ultimate Holiday Wishlist*

With the dark, chilly nights starting to make an appearance here in the U.K. I can't help but find myself wistfully daydreaming of sunny holidays in a desperate attempt at clutching onto summer. From thoughts of tropical beaches to cocktails by the pool, it's safe to say I'm not quite ready for the autumn weather.

When the wish of jetting off on holiday gets a little too much, I often find myself browsing various travel sites to have a little peek at just how much that dream trip would cost & whether my bank account will allow it. As - unfortunately - it's usually a solid "no" from my bank account, when Earnest* challenged me to create the ultimate "holiday wishlist" with a budget of $10,000 (around £7,000 for us Brits) I thought this could be the perfect way to help take the edge off my current wanderlust.

As a huge Disney/Universal fan, I obviously couldn't resist planning for a trip back to Orlando Florida (somewhere I haven't visited since I was around eleven) and immediately starting checking out the park hotels.

After a lot of searching I finally settled on the Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge. For those who don't know the Animal Kingdom Lodge is a four star hotel inspired by the traditional African Kraal & is home to over thirty exotic animal species including; Giraffes, Zebras & Gazelles (imagine sitting on the balcony whilst watching Giraffes wander around?!).

As someone who's a little scared of flying (little being an understatement) I'd also be sure to allocate a chunk of my "wishlist" budget to making the nine hours flight from the U.K. to Orlando as comfortable as possible. To do this I'd have to treat myself to an upgrade to First Class & finally test out the seats that convert into a bed (no more awkward sleeping in a tiny seat for me!).

With around half of my budget spent on flights, park tickets (including Disney & Universal Studios of course) along with my hotel, I'd probably use the remaining budget to use a spending money. From buying a tonne of Disney Merchandise (why can we not get Disney Pandora in the U.K.?) to spending an afternoon or two in Sephora, I'm sure there wouldn't be much left over at the end!

If planning a dream vacation is something you love the idea of, be sure to check out Earnest's personal loans for ideas on how to make the dream a reality.

Where would you go for a dream holiday?
I'd love to know in the comments.
