I'd like to say roll on the next 2 weeks but we've still got to do half our ADR's. Then again after the cruise we'll probably be all fooded out.

On our last trip it was quite busy, but there was a guy walking round and pulling families with small babies straight to the front. (Not sure if this is something they do frequently or not). We were lucky to be included in this as I was pregnant and had a tired 2year old in my arms lol.

I really don't like the sound of all these immigration delays at MCO but I assume this isn't a problem that's affecting Florida alone and I expect there will be additional delays wherever the first point of entry happens to be.

Maybe I have had bad luck but my past experiences of travelling indirect via Newark have been no better than going through MCO and the longest wait time for luggage that I have ever had in the US was after my last connecting flight from there so any advantage there might have been was wiped out.

I think I will just stick with going direct from London or Manchester to Orlando and take my chances with immigration. I already have one connection anyway as travelling from Aberdeen so the journey is long enough without another leg. Although the Aer Lingus option sounds interesting and I will be interested in any reports as to how that works out

Two years ago, we were on the BA flight from LGW that pretty much arrives the exact same time as the VA one! So we waited in that mammoth queue, only to be then held by immigration (was on a work visa as was about to start the college program at WDW) after handing over my documents at the desk. We were held in this tiny room, crammed in like sardines, no information, just told to wait and not to talk. Not a great experience - I think we were held for around 4 hours in total....

After that, I think I'll be able to deal with an hour or two in the queue if that's what it takes now! I'll soon get over it once I'm on the ME on the other side

Ooh hope this happens. We'll have 14 month old DS who just wants to walk everywhere and climb on everything and everyone and 2 year old cousins DS who is completely hyper - I mean scary hyper!! Cant imagine the queue with both our kids! Would be so grateful if we were pulled from the queue, just hate the thought of really annoying other tired travellers with our in-your-face kiddies!

think I might pinch a couple of the aircraft pillows and stick them up my top so I look VERY pregnant and see if that works..they will prob just look at me and think 'NO...she's too old to be pregnant she must just be extremely fat'

You'd need more than a couple of those skinny pathetic pillows to try look pregnant, lol. If I wanted to create that impression I'd be inclined to raid the whole PE cabin of pillows before disembarking

They did call over one family last year, or one that I noticed, with an infant. Most airports are fairly reasonable with infants and the disabled. It's just a question of whether they notice them or not.

We have also been pulled with our twins when they was babies/toddlers normally they are crying or trying to escape in different directions lmao!

We know get assisted passage so we can bypass the long lines
