After hearing horror stories I was expecting the worst but was pleasantly surprised.

From landing to getting through immigration took about 40 mins.
Now we were first off the plane and got to the hall before lots of people (a few planes had just landed) but I wouldn't say there was more than an hour wait max? All stations were manned by immigration officials and they were pretty quick and efficient

Enjoy the cruise. Not sure we will make Cheesecake factory but will try our best and text you with our progress. Epcot if not.

40 mins is not great in PE for immigration, last year we had done immigration, collected luggage, collected car and on the road in 40 mins, but if all stations were manned it was just volume rather than staffing problems.

Yeah let us know safe travels

Was about an hour and a twenty from landing to driving off, which we didn't mind too much, especially as we used the second bag drop for the first time in years (infants really don't travel light ).

Wide awake now though at 5 am, need to try and get at least another hours rest before thinking of getting up then a trip to my favourite place - Walmart!
Maybe will pop into the DISboards.com Welcome Center too
