Morning!

We were up a little before 5am and the taxi arrived at 6. Even at that time the roads to the airport were busy. The desks were preparing to open and we spotted the line for Web checkin. We were first in the line. And ended up first to put our bags through.

I have a corporate credit card which gives me access to the exec lounges so we are now sitting in the Styal lounge having breakfast and reading the papers. It's only 8 am but already people are drinking the free beer, wine and spirits!

I'm sticking with the coffee and free wifi!

There were upgrades available to Envoy class but they were $500 plus £65 tax - each. We didn't bother.

I'll try to keep a note of the timings when we land in Philly and how long it takes to get through immigration and customs etc.

We've arrived!

Landed at MCO at 6.20 pm local time last night. Were out collecting the car by 7.

The transfer at Philly was fairly tight. Made it to the gate about 5 mins before boarding started.

Will give all the timings later for those who are doing that same route.

Got a nice silver Chevrolet Camaro.

Went to bed just after 9 after a quick Wendys burger and unpacking.

Breakfast this morning at Cracker Barrel. Done a quick shop at Public and now getting ready to go to SeaWorld.

More detailed update tonight!
