    We drive to Florida and normally stay at an off-site hotel for a night or two prior to checking in at WDW. The fact that we are already in Orlando allows us to get to our WDW resort nice and early to pick up our tickets and then we head to MK. Looking forward to repeating this pattern next month.

    It depends on when we get there. It's always hotel check in first.

    If we arrive on the morning or early afternoon then we head to a park. If we do a late evening flight it's go to the room to crash.

    We normally drive. We check in no matter what time it is. If the room is ready then we'll take luggage to the room. If not we'd probably drop the luggage with bell services. Normally we then head to DTD and the Margarita stand

    yeah. On occasions we've had something else booked and in some ways, the holiday doesn't feel like it's started until I've had my glass of champagne and watched illuminations

    I'm the odd one out









    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.

    We usually leave the house around 5am, stop at Starbucks for human fuel and begin driving north. We generally arrive around 8am, check in, and then head to the Polynesian (if not staying there) for breakfast and a ride and visit to the monorail resorts. Our room is usually ready by the time we return.
