I promised some fellow DIS'rs that I would make a note of and report back on the timings as we progressed through Philadelphia airport, so here goes.......

This relates to US735

11.03 Taxied from gate at Manchester, taking off at 11.10
1.45 pm local time Landed in Philadelphia
2.00 pm Arrived in Immigration
2.45 pm Cleared Immigration
Walked straight through customs and then bag drop
3.05 pm Cleared Security
3.15 pm Arrived at gate (after walking swiftly! )
3.20 pm Flight started boarding
4.05 pm Took off (10 mins late)
6.20 pm Landed in Orlando (early)
7.00 pm Arrived at Hertz Gold Club to collect the car

I was quite impressed with the way that US Airways have upped their game since we last flew with them 2 years ago. The planes were new or refurbished and the IFE on the transatlantic flight was excellent - with a huge choice of films, music, tv and games on a decent sized screen. You can pause, rewind, ff etc. Headsets were $5 but not great quality. You can use your own though.
The food was better than the last time too. All edible!

Had Momma's Pancake Breakfast in Cracker Barrel for breakfast and ate at Tony Roma's on I drive this evening.
Fairly relaxed day at Sea World doing the shows rather than the rides today.
Hot day with mostly sunny skies.
Car has lots of gadgets which I love - reversing camera, Sirius radio infotainment system, head up driver's display etc but DH not a big gadget geek like me.

Uploaded some photos. Think we'll go shopping and to DTD tomorrow.

Hey Julie, glad you made it safely. Sounds like a nice, relaxing first day. We always found Sea World a great park to visit on the first day.

And I see you wasted no time in getting your delicious food fix. We love Tony Romas but hardly ever make it there since there are so many other places we like too. Still, we will get our TRs fix here in the UK at the end of May.

Looking forward to more, you are probably still snoozing now so have a great day when you get up

Thanks for the timings, we are on that flight in October.

Your picture of EI took me back to our December holiday as we stayed there in a Th for half of our stay and really enjoyed it.

Love the food photos, thanks for posting

We were up at 7am today and went to Bob Evans for breakfast. The service was excellent, as it usually is there, but our regular waitress Sandra has transferred to another branch.

Spent the morning at Premium outlets and bought a DKNY dress for myself and a few baby clothes for my new great niece. I'd been hoping to find some Kiehl's products at good prices as in previous years but there were no real bargains this time.

This afternoon we went to DTD and rode on Characters in Flight after a 'light snack' in Ghirardelli. After wandering around for a while we left and went to the Boardwalk for another wander around.

Dinner tonight was at Texas Roadhouse and we were able to get a table within ten minutes of arrival. The staff are all very enthusiastic and service was excellent.

Tomorrow we are going to Lake Dora for 'Planes, Trains And BBQs'!

The weather is good. Pretty hot.. Mid 90s F.

Those Potatoes with cheese & bacon look delicious. Still not made it to the new Teaxas Roadhouse I keep getting vouchers for $5, $10 or Bogof at Logans. Hope we will get there in August.

Texas Roadhouse was one of our favourites last year. We will definitely be going back at least once in November.

Those 'light snacks' at Ghirardellis look delicious
