Here is the first of my posts on our Greek trip. Day 1 –Day of Departure and Arrival in Athens The car service actually showed up 25 minutes early so we decided to go ahead a leave early. The driver told us ahead of time he knew the fare and the tip had already been handled by Disney. We arrived at the airport and the US Airways agent seemed very confused checking us in because we upgraded to Envoy Business Class from Philadelphia to Athens and she did not understand that the first leg of our flight did not have Envoy Business Class. After 20 minutes she finally got us checked in. As we are waiting for our flight from Reagan National to Philadelphia they are asking for volunteers on every flight to travel later as the all the flights have been overbooked by at least 2 people. Our flight boarded late and then sat on the tarmac for 20 minutes. What was supposed to be a 2 ½ hour layover in Philadelphia turned into a mad dash from terminal F to terminal A. The flight was very smooth and we were able to get some sleep. When we arrived at the airport in Athens a porter was holding the Adventures by Disney sign and a tour guide welcomed us. He told us we were the first guests ever to arrive for this trip and he was excited. The trip to the hotel takes about 30 minutes and there is nothing to see along the way. You go through some industrial parts of the city to get to the hotel. The location of the hotel is not that great, but it is beautiful. Our room is on the second floor and we have a view of the pool and a road with a lot of graffiti. We are in one of the renovated rooms, that is very nice and looks like it is two rooms made into one. It has long hallways on both sides of the room with a sitting area and a king bed. The hotel has complimentary internet, which we were not expecting. The TV only has news stations in English. After we freshen up, we are going to take the hotel shuttle to the center of town and explore a bit. Will post again after we explore.
