    :cool1:

    4:05am and we're all awake, just so excited!

    Our flights were really good Virgin Aust MEL-LAX the staff onboard were fantastic, they did not sit down the whole time.
    Not like the old days of the flying Kangaroo where they give you a drink and you don't see them ;)
    They cleaned the toilets onboard constantly by them, and they were wiping down surfaces with cleaning solution throughout the flight :thumbsup2

    Lunch/dinner we had chicken Penang, nice food, breakfast was scrambled eggs, I didn't eat it :rolleyes1

    Tight connecting flight LAX-ATL but we got picked out by Delta because of our connecting flight.
    Customs were just customs :goodvibes no problems, they're pretty good.
    Delta staff onboard LAX-ATL and ATL-MCO were good too.
    Very funny my DS said to the head steward on our LAX-ATL "oh, we're always up the back of the plane". She laughed and said "sounds like a warning if I ever heard one, would you like a cookie?" And she gave him some pretzels and a cookie:rotfl2:

    ATL airport is massive! Such an eye opener.

    And our hotel in the airport terminal here is brilliant, location can't be beat, staff are lovely, I was a little worried about checking in as we used LMT on a cheapie booking but I needn't have worried, staff were lovely and checkin was quick.

    How could I forget???

    We saw Minniemum on the plane :happytv:

    We walked past her boarding LAX-ATL and she said "you're Deb" and I said "Bec" and she's replied "yeah, that's right" LOL

    Disers are real! :thumbsup2

    Then we sat in front of them ATL-MCO :p


    DH is wide awake, he's just gone to the gym :laughing:

    I may go there...or not :rotfl2:

    My DH got approached by a guy at Melbourne Airport and the guy said "does your son go to ____school?" and DH says "yeah", he guy replied "yeah, mine too".

    They're coming to Orlando but did a longer layover in L.A.
    People can't get enough Disney LOL

    Bec, we're doing MEL- LAX in just over a week with Virgin. What was the timing of meals? She we do a early lunch for the kids before we board?

    Have an awesome time!

    Hi

    We did this flight 3weeks ago tommorow :-( time flies ... Expect dinner ( lunch) about 2 hrs after take off , snack box 6 hrs later and breakfast 1.5-2hrs before landing. There is a snack bar about half way down the economy cabin mostly with water and chips stocked. Try and make sure you have asked for kids meals as they are quite good.
