    Hope you both have a truly fabulous time :D
    Safe journey :hug2:

    Thanks so much :hug2: we're very glad to be here!

    Well we arrived after a long long day. Interesting, well moderately :lol:, to see that immigration had changed from the "choose your queue" style to a disney like snaked queue where they take each family individually from the front and send you to a free desk. Felt fairer really.

    The ESTA process has finally done away with filling in the green forms YAY only the one customs declaration to fill in now which is definitely an improvement.

    It's pretty cold here at Disney which of course I love and DW well, doesn't :lol:

    Absolutely no idea what we're going to do today, whatever we stumble into I guess :yes: how's that for impulsive :)

    Hope all is well back at home for you all

    Glad to hear that you arrived safe and sound Keith.
    That "snake type" queue at Immigration does seem to speed up the process doesn`t it?

    Enjoy your holiday and have fun. :wave:

    Still in the 60s temperature wise

    We went to EPCOT on our first night, nice meal at the nine dragons followed by a walk round to france for some champagne whilst watching the fireworks. Special christmas illuminations are already on which extends it by a good few minutes and is even more spectacular.

    Charleys steakhouse for last night's dinner. I'm still full and likely to be for another couple of weeks which is a bit of a problem since we're off to the sci-fi diner in a couple of minutes :lol: then it'll be the great movie ride and the art of animation "draw a character" academy which is always fun :)

    Later we have the Hoop Dee Doo :D

    Still can't believe I'm missing the snow back home though :( can someone post some? or hey, perhaps it'll get low enough out here to snow :D

    Get all that cold weather out of the way now, so it is miraculously tropical for my arrival on 26th January :D

    Sounds great so far Keith. Has your DH requested a new handbag to make up for having to put up with the cold weather yet? :unsure: :D I would!!

    There are a couple of Charley`s in the Orlando area but the one that Keith and I frequent is on US192 West close to the Celebration entrance road.
