We're at The Wilderness Lodge!

We arrived here about 8 o'clock on Friday night after a few flights.
Aberdeen to Heathrow went really quickly and we had groundstaff waiting for us in LHR to take us straight to the gate for the next flight, perfect.
The BA flight from LHR to JFK was probably the best flight I've had, the food, movies, comfy seat and staff were great. Upon arrival at JFK, we got a priority ticket to fly through security and we were through in no time at all.
We had a delay in the JFK - MCO flight due to problems with the plane, but a couple of gratis Corona's helped that pass.
Getting thru MCO as a native is a doddle but the hike back to B1 from A1 for DME is a bit of a pain.
As I'd already checked in online, we were in our room within 5 minutes of arriving.
We spent the next few hours exploring the hotel and unpacking.......

Glad you arrived safely. We are on an amber warning for flooding in Aberdeenshire so hopefully you have escaped the rain.

Look forward to further updates

I did write a report of our day at MK yesterday but lost wireless connection when posting!
As it took me so long, I won't be doing that again!
Suffice to say, we had a great day at the Magic Kingdom.... Photopass Plus is definitely worth the wee bit more.

Today was at DTD for the morning and early afternoon and then across to Fort Wilderness to see the horses for a bit in the afternoon. Boma at 6 was really busy and although it was good, there's no way I would have paid the price for it if I wasn't on the DDP. The jalapeño lime tequila were good too.

Tomorrow is Animal Kingdom.....

Yep, you're better off in Florida - there was almost flooding again on Friday evening (the River Cowie almost burst its banks again - some gardens were flooded on Cameron Street, and we had the TV cameras waiting like vultures - think they were disappointed that they all got soaked for nothing!).

Glad the connections worked OK - I might try that next time.
