4:05am and we're all awake, just so excited!

Our flights were really good Virgin Aust MEL-LAX the staff onboard were fantastic, they did not sit down the whole time.
Not like the old days of the flying Kangaroo where they give you a drink and you don't see them
They cleaned the toilets onboard constantly by them, and they were wiping down surfaces with cleaning solution throughout the flight

Lunch/dinner we had chicken Penang, nice food, breakfast was scrambled eggs, I didn't eat it

Tight connecting flight LAX-ATL but we got picked out by Delta because of our connecting flight.
Customs were just customs no problems, they're pretty good.
Delta staff onboard LAX-ATL and ATL-MCO were good too.
Very funny my DS said to the head steward on our LAX-ATL "oh, we're always up the back of the plane". She laughed and said "sounds like a warning if I ever heard one, would you like a cookie?" And she gave him some pretzels and a cookie

ATL airport is massive! Such an eye opener.

And our hotel in the airport terminal here is brilliant, location can't be beat, staff are lovely, I was a little worried about checking in as we used LMT on a cheapie booking but I needn't have worried, staff were lovely and checkin was quick.

How could I forget???

We saw Minniemum on the plane

We walked past her boarding LAX-ATL and she said "you're Deb" and I said "Bec" and she's replied "yeah, that's right" LOL

Disers are real!

Then we sat in front of them ATL-MCO


DH is wide awake, he's just gone to the gym

I may go there...or not

My DH got approached by a guy at Melbourne Airport and the guy said "does your son go to ____school?" and DH says "yeah", he guy replied "yeah, mine too".

They're coming to Orlando but did a longer layover in L.A.
People can't get enough Disney LOL

Bec, we're doing MEL- LAX in just over a week with Virgin. What was the timing of meals? She we do a early lunch for the kids before we board?

Have an awesome time!

Hi

We did this flight 3weeks ago tommorow :-( time flies ... Expect dinner ( lunch) about 2 hrs after take off , snack box 6 hrs later and breakfast 1.5-2hrs before landing. There is a snack bar about half way down the economy cabin mostly with water and chips stocked. Try and make sure you have asked for kids meals as they are quite good.

Great to meet you too Deb... Oops I mean Bec. Hope DS is feeling a little better.

DH says I've taken my disboards addiction to a whole new level now. He thinks disboards is a conspiracy and that we all book and travel en masse.

So, back today from The Fantasy, such an appropriate name
We didn't do any shore excursions, didn't need to
Loved the service, the facilities, the staff, the spaces, just loved, loved, LOVED!
DH also loved it and we did line up in the queue to book another but there was just too many people but we're definately going again

Have checked into Coronado Springs tonight, had dinner at Biergarten, sat with a couple of newlyweds from Long Island, really nice people!
Hotel is old but clean, having previously stayed at Hilton Bonnet Creek and on the Fantasy i'm feeling extremely spoilt and precious though

Off to Magic Kingdom tomorrow, need to be awake in 7.5 hours to get ready to make it for rope drop

Amazing trip so far!
