Flights are booked! We fly with American Airlines out of Heathrow on the 23rd Aug flying into Chicago. Short stop-over of 1.5 hrs then it's on to Orlando! We actually brought it forward by a day as initially we were looking at the 24th. Now we just need confirmation that the villa is available for the extra day and then we book that!

What I would like to caution you about is the size of O'Hare airport and the distance between the terminals if you are going to be going to MCO with a domestic flight. With only 1 hours between flights make sure that you know where you're going if you need to go from terminal to terminal.

Here is a link to the map of the airport page


19-07-2008, 02:51 PM
Thank you for the link Dorothy. We fly into terminal 5 and fly out of 4 (I think).

That'll explain where my figure went then!

19-07-2008, 07:18 PM
Either they've changed the recipe or they've lied! There's 260 calories in a Magnum. Are they similar in size? (Can you tell I've never had a Mickey Bar?)

19-07-2008, 07:25 PM
There's a Mickey candy bar out there somewhere. Maybe that's what your numbers are for.

A Mickey ice cream bar weighs about 300lbs. Well, more than a couple of ounces anyway. :lol:

300lb? That's a little on the large side! I don't eat ice cream anyway so. Yucky stuff!

19-07-2008, 09:48 PM
Oh that's great news, I'm jealous!!!! x

19-07-2008, 09:56 PM
The Mickey Bars are actually smaller (thinner) than they used to be. :( You'll notice it right off when you get one. :( Price is the same though. :rolleyes:
