Just boarding :) will try my 1st live trip report

Hey all just boarded now! Boys surprise went amazing could not have wished for a better response
Marriott Courtyard, everything was lovely, only a five minute walk from the terminal.
Check in with Virgin was fab, the lady at the desk was very helpful and friendly. She put premier on all the luggage for quick service! Including access the the Gatwick lounge!

Will write again soon.

Ok well.....we are finally here!
Virgin flight was fantastic we could not have wanted for a better flight! flying on the Airbus,
We had a drink service at least 0nce every hour,lunch is now served in 2 parts starter main & then dessert,we also had ice-cream and sweets given to us during the flight.Few turbulance that seemed to hapen every time i needed the loo
Our only problems was that we was stuck on the plane for an extra hour after landing as there was a fierce lightning storm,The view of it from the plane was great! "It did scare the boys though"

Once off the plane immigration was pretty smooth,we all was a little worried as we was pretty backed up at this point as 4 planes had landed.
By the time we collected our baggage decided to pop it on the other belt it took at least an hour and alot of walking (Sanford is definatly easier)

Magic express got us all in the mood!! checked into the Springs section at SSR after trying to find the room for at least 20 mins everybody was thrilled with the room,Its HUGE boys think its brilliant that nanny and them have their own room and bathroom.
This is the point where I must mention that on the table was a beautiful Mickey cooler filled with lots of treats that was a surprise for us from Suzanne Ian and Ryan (M1CKEY MOUSE) we are so thankful for Disboards as we truely have made the most wonderful friends in these people as we found they only lived a mile or so up the rd!!

We grabbed our mugs and a QS meal which the boys took 1 bite of and then said they was too tired to eat which is not surprising since they have at theis point been up for 18 hours!!

So now we are back to the room and the boys are fast alseep...Im too excited to sleep (ill be feeling it tomorrow )

Tomorrow we will be going to Magic Kingdom we have Crystal palace for lunch then Chef Mickeys for dinner if we make it that long!
