    I am taking both jeans and shorts, as others have said, the best advice is just to be prepared for both! I will be wearing shorts even if the weather is crap though... But that's just me ;)

    I am really looking forward to this now though, really very excited for it! I'm pretty much all set, just need to properly decide what I want to take with me and buy a few last bits :D

    I'm almost set for this. I just need to pack, call my bank to let them know I'm going abroad and how long for, and also call Sainsbury's in Stoke to try and sort out currency. Yeah, I kinda forgot about money until the middle of last week... :p

    I must be the only person who hadn't done their packing, got their Euro's sorted or done anything to prepare for this trip.

    Waaaah! I need to sort myself out!

    Simplify the packing process by giving your younger sister £10 to iron and pack for me whist I have a beer

    Nope, Lottie! I am moving house on Wednesday (as most of you know ;) ), at a wedding on Thursday, then travelling to EP on Friday. I haven't packed for EP, got Euros or printed documents! Argh!

    I'll never forget applying emergency suncream in the queue for blue fire at 9am back in April 2009. Can't guarantee the weather but it's usually good

    Basically, the weather in EP is exactly the same as it is here. Just think English weather - take both. :)

    The weather was lovely for most of the Easter 2012 trip, but went a fair bit cooler the week after when I went around some other parks. Last year the weather was absolutely pants, but then it was even worse here! Go prepared for either circumstance.

    It'll be warmer than last April.

    I'd estimate around 18C max. With lows at night of 5C.

    And that's the Astro forecast, which is hopefully more accurate than my opening meet forecast. :/

    Just leaving work now, and I won't be back until the 30th.

    I guess this is really happening! :D

    Although most of EP's water rides deliver acceptable wetness, anything denim is a bad idea for Tiroler Wildwasserbahn (and possibly Fjord Rafting if you're unlucky).
