    hi guys, just hoping to get some advice on how this tour went – my girlfriend and I have this tour booked for june 24, had it booked since november last year. What do you suggest we do with the optionals? thinking of doing the helicopter flyover of the grand canyon, and maybe the airboat swamp ride, but I dont really know what I should be expecting from each destination. probably want to do a theme park in orlando, and whether anyone knew if disney world differs much from disneyland (girlfriend has already booked 3 days in disneyland, even though i am willing to do it, i had no choice lol). And any must see sites and good bars to go to?
