Hi all, just thought I would let you all know that we are sitting in the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at Gatwick awaiting the departure of our flight
The VS27 has just been called, just leaving us all on the vS15

We have had a full English breakfast, with Bucks Fizz, followed by haircuts in the beauty salon, the little 'un is sitting down watching Nick Jr on the Tv drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows in it.
I don't know if I should have another drink and some more food, the scrambled eggs and salmon lokks divine, or maybe the Ben & jerrys ice cream?

Well, will post from sunny Florida once we arrive

Life eh? :teeth:

I love the clubhouse too, but since it's no longer open to PE and Economy passengers (for a fee), I'm probably going to have to satisfy myself with happy memories. Unless I won the lottery last night... :teeth: We did consider UC for our next trip and nearly went through with it, but then I worked out how many cold beers I could get instead!

Have good trip, Obi.

Hi all,
just a quick post,
Sitting in our villa 09:55, sun is shining and temps are expected to be 80oF today
Going to Animal kingdom today.
Yesterday, picked up a couple of cellular phones from Wal mart for $20 each pay as you go, with TRACFONE wireless service, so we now have 407 mobile phones! all you do is get a top up card, load it onto you phone and away you go!

sounds great.....
as for weather...it was about 87 here today...beautiful cloudless blue sky.......as always.......since it's 'winter' i'm wearing full length trousers with my sandals and short sleeve shirt (in the summer i wear 3/4 length trousers with my sandals and short sleeve shirt)....life's tough.....
i always say, we have much nicer weather than orlando...maybe they could move WDW.......then life would be truly perfect.......

wow Obi....i was just looking at Orlando weather for the next week....it's going to be a wee bit on the chilly side there.....supposedly 78 tomorrow, 72 on wednesday and 68 on thursday....
i guess the US is going to have a hard winter this year....i know the midwest is being battered by snow right now.......
i wonder what was predicted for the year in the Farmer's almanac....i think i'll go check it out....

on our last trip in september we spent most of our time there....DD's choice...we must have seen Tarzan 10 times......

we must have seen Tarzan 10 times......

We didn't like Tarzan that much. A little to loud and the one of the guitarists (looked like Bill Wyman) was a little creepy. Also, that Jany was a bit of a tart; she came on fully clothed and within a minute was undressing and running off with Tarzan. We prefered the Festival of the Lion King.

:) Chris.

there are several different bands and several different performers (e.g., there are 3 different lead male singers and about 6 women who trade off the 2 female singing roles)...
and there are 2 Tarzans...

yes it's loud, but we love it...

Festival of the Lion King is also great and used to be our favorite....unfortunately this past summer they had some very bad singers which sort of ruined it for us.....we went again in september and were pleased to see the quality of the singers had returned to that of the original performers.....
