    So lets get going now.....When ariving in orlando what are the things that make you realise you are actually there .....for me its that warm air as you leave the airport...........The well manicured road sides in wdw, the large overhead signs that say "welcome to Epcot" ect. Having 50 different types of milk to choose from and that feeling of utter exhaustion on the first night when you want to eat but are so tired you just need to sleep.



    I think we may have done this thread before, so sorry if we are repeating

    Has to be the first US voices we hear, then the warm air and the different smells (has anyone else noticed the US smells different from home?);)

    the sports bag belonging to the person in front of you on the plane who leaps out of their seat in a desperate attempt to get off first!!!! :D



    ok....it's probably the humidity then the size of the airport - but then the realisation that queues are looming.

    The BEST bit just arriving is the monorail from air to land sides (McCoy airport that is) - I love that - a ride so soon and it's free!
    :cool:

    ......... it hits me when I leave the airport - I'm always relieved to exit an aiport away from all the hassle and the flight, and just take in the different temperature, the sun, the blue sky, the plants ........... and the difference in the roads - not least driving on the other side!!
    ......... but I love driving into the WDW area! The arch over the road welcoming you to WDW with the characters on it, and the thick forest of trees on either side.
    Mmmmmmmmmmmm........... roll on May!

    I always offer up a little prayer and shed a tear as the wheels of the plane touchdown at MCO (I'm a tad scared of flying!) - we are really here! Next it's the sub-tropical climate - that humidity that hits you and what we call 'The Florida Smell'. Then the drive from the airport - that somewhere 4500 miles from home can be so familiar never fails to overwhelm me.

    And I always cry at the sight of my first WDW landmark each trip (Spaceship Earth, etc). The first time it happened dds thought I'd stubbed my toe - now they just laugh at me!

    But most of all it has got to be my first glimpse of the castle at Magic Kingdom.

    Can't wait until October.:)
