    However, anything that will make it better, such as the on demand entertainment will be great, especially with a 2 and 6 year old to entertain. It's a shame they don't got from Manchester, but if they work out cheaper, I don't mind that much really.
    I wonder if Virgin still stop doing man->orlando direct anyway now they're starting to offer their own shuttle down from manchester to heathrow. I could imagine it being much easier for them to can the man->orl route and just connect passengers down to heathrow.

    In truth, although I prefer direct of course, the BA manchester terminal -> london and out is nowhere near as bad as it used to be. It's actually pretty efficient so if there's a decent cost saving involved, I'd do it.

    i loved going from terminal 5 to Miami and it's a bonus for us northerners as it's Heathrow and not Gatwick!

    I did see that 'inside Gatwick' program and the BA area did look pretty good. We have considered doing an indirect flight to save a few , butility I'm not too keen. It'd have to be massively cheaper to justify that

    it's a really easy drive if that makes a difference and if you don't do the parks on your last day then it's fine. I actually really like driving (being driven lol) in the US, the road kill is amazing LOL

    By indirect I meant 2 flight, like going to Chicago or Atlanta first. Hadn't even thought of driving from Miami...

    3 1/2 hours but it's very easy driving, what we tend to do is fly in then drive an hour in the direction of our location and stay in a hotel, get an early night then up early next day, you can be checking in by 9am

    Anthony's just had a look at it seems to cost more going to Miami anyway.

    It's a really boring drive from Miami though









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
