    Hello :wave:

    It's 4.30am and everyone except Adrian is up.

    The villa is awesome - can't go back to one single hotel room now. We were in the pool at 4am! :lol:

    Steven was fantastic on the plane. He just sat there all the way, and was impeccable. Lines at immigration horrific - 2 hours from plane to car but again Steven brilliant. Really did us proud. He fell asleep in the huge Dodge caravan we chose but as soon as we got to the villa he was awake and in the pool. He kept going for 23 hours yesterday and did better than a lot of the grown ups.

    Oh and the thermometer outside said that at 4am it was 88 degrees. :mental:

    Off for breakfast and then Walmart. :D

    Will check in now and then. :wave:

    Hot, hot, hot!!! Yes indeedy. It is August in Florida... get ready for some sweltering, but you'll still have fun.

    Steven is a champ!!! We thought of you last night at 10:00 pm when we were watching Nightastic, wondering if you were in yet, and if you could have possibly made it to MK for the show!

    Enjoy your stay!!! (Watch out for Walmart)! :eek:

    Welcome to sunny Florida.

    Glad you like the villa, most people love them after having just 1 room in a hotel, enjoy the space - it will be like a home from home

    You can never go back to one room once you have had a taste of villa. To have a full kitchen and your own pool is unbeatable.

    Walmart was awesome. :awesome:

    Stocked up with drinks and snacks and $100. Then we went round again :lol: and spent another $120 on tourist tat. We went to the one on Turkey Lake Road.

    Off to Downtown Disney is a bit to get some real overpriced tourist tat :thumbsup:

    Magic Kingdom tomorrow. :mental:

    Dawn....are you going to MK for the opening ceremony? I had never been before when I went in January, and I blubbed like baby, it was so nostalgic and a great way to start the holiday!!! Of course, that was after being in the carpark at IHOP at 5:45 waiting for them to open cos it was too early, then being so early at MK we got lost as we were automatically directed to the CMs carpark!!!
