    Usually for us it's a case of grab a bite to eat somewhere like McDonalds and an early night. We're good for nothing after the journey and you have to remember that although we are in bed by about 9.30 - 10.00pm, our body clocks are telling us that it's really 2.30am!

    Haul the kids into bed - go for a quick rummage in the shop and pass out - only to wake up at 4 am

    Then ( everytime) ring guest services to ask what time breakfast is served from :lol:

    actually I'm FINE when we get there.... I can choose whether to go to sleep after the hoop dee doo at midnightish florida time or stay up longer! Not tired in the slightest and fine the next morning :)

    ...but at the other end, coming back to the UK I'm absolutely useless for a good two weeks. That's whatever I do.... if I have naps, if I stay awake, whatever I do :(

    The UK is 5 hours ahead of Florida so when we wake up at 4am our body clock thinks it's 9am and can't believe there's no caffeinated beverage for another 2 hours.

    Have a wander around the resort, eat, unpack, bed.
    I usually wake up by 4am and eat snacks to keep me going until I can get breakfast.
