No, it was a 70 min line, I have a 20 min limit for any ride.

Yes, Apple store in the Florida Mall, its the 32gb wifi version, $599 + tax = £637, converts to just over £400, UK price is £479 so about £75 saving.

Today we relaxed, bit of shopping (Matt wanted some Polo shirts, see pic) I got a couple of OKW baseball hats & picked up a few things ready for Lily arriving on Tuesday, Bucket, ball, Noodle & squirting fish.
Swim this afternoon then Blue Man Group this evening (thanks Mart) Anew routine this year and still as good, great show.
After the show we ate at the Orlando Ale House LBV, ate far too much yet again.
Tomorrow we move to OKW after lunch with CM friends.





Loaded fries


Chicken Parmesan


Fish & chips


Tuna Melt open sandwich

Looking forward to your updates at OKW.

by the way, DD and DSIL made it to Alaska after traveling for 39 hours (and that was after being awake all day before the flight )

they're now 11 hours behind me (so 9 hours behind the UK)...
talk about upside down time zones!!.....

she did manage to rent a car.....and for anyone going to fairbanks, go ahead and order the mini....she ordered the super mini and ended up with a ford focus - since that's the smallest car they have in fairbanks!!!! so she's paying for a mini mini and driving a focus...

she did manage to drive to the hotel and then called to have me explain all the crazy driving rules in the US!!!

they already were at their first touristy thing on friday morning at 10 am (after checking into the hotel at 10:00 pm the night before)..
they managed to pan for $54 in gold .....
i think from there it was off to meet some dog sled dogs and then a meal of very very fresh salmon (it's peak salmon running time in alaska)...

Superb, 30+mbps every time I have checked and its everywhere, rooms, lobby, breakfast and out by the pool.
I would have liked to stay here again in Nov but couldn't get a good rate, always paid about £30/nt before but now its part of the Fairfield brand(previously Country Inn & suites) its around £70/nt.
I booked the other Fairfield Inn(Marriott Village) instead for Nov @ £36/nt, nicer pool there if the weather is good enough for a swim and you can use the facilities of the other 2 hotels in the "Village" (Courtyard & Springhill Suites)

All good upto now, just a little bored today, I know many love changing hotels but for us its about as low as a holiday gets. All showered, packed, had breakfast, all done for 9am, now waiting for time to pass and go for lunch, then check into OKW, always feels like a wasted day changing hotels.

A new feature this year, I got an email yesterday reminding us of our dining reservation at Bongos tonight, I recieved another this morning reminding us of our reservation tomorrow at Paradiso 37. Maybe others have had these before but first year for us.

Almost time to pack the car, off to twiddle my thumbs a little longer.
