    Mine starts as soon as I lock the front door behind me. I'm singing Disney songs before I get in the car and all the way to the airport

    I know I've arrived when I step out of Orlando International and the Orlando air hits me.....the greenhouse effect.

    The second my bum hits the seat on the aeroplane... then I have a glass of wine ( in the day) and I know I'm on holiday

    The smell when you walk out of the airport doors into the hot Florida air, just makes me feel I'm home - love it, love it, love it

    I'm such a worrier, I don't really feel like I'm on holiday until I'm on that little train to the main part of Orlando airport :D

    Disney Magical Express is so great value for money that we've done that the last few times, but I used to REALLY feel "there" when I got into the towncar and we stopped off at some Orlando supermarket :D

    Well, I'll actually feel that I'm headed out on a proper holiday this time, as I'll be flying in from Arizona.

    My holiday will start when we've checked in and are in Tip Top Lounge (Top of the World) having a nice drink. That's how we kick off all our Disney holidays... a fancy drink. Make mine champagne please, brut thanks. :D

    When we are at OKW our tradition is to have a Bud with Lime (the only time you'll catch me drinking Bud! ) once we've checked in. It started with a wonderful bartender, Robbie. He's not there any more. :( He gave us Buds with Lime one early time and that's be the tradition ever since.

    Funny how those little things get started isn't it?

    Tip Top Lounge is the nick given to the Lounge at the top of Bay Lake Towers. You have to be staying on points (a member) to get in. We know the barkeep so are looking forward to having a nice drink once we've checked in.

    OOOO ok! I knew it was there, didn't realise it was called that though :)

    I really loved Bay Lake Towers although my preference is still the main contemporary building MK view just because of the size of rooms. (of course that changes if you have a 1/2 bedroom at BLT I guess, we just had a studio)
