    Last trip to WDW was last December when we came for two weeks and bought APs for that trip. This trip was added in when we found airfares too good to pass up, especially since our APs were still good.</font>

    We got up at 6am and showered and finished packing and walked to El Centro with our luggage (it has wheels). We were there by 650am and at 7am our same towncar driver (Mr. Quiet) showed up. We were at the airport by 730am and checked in. We couldn't get anything better than an aisle seat for Roger’s long legs as the flights were full.

    We had initially booked an 1115am flight out of MCO but about a month ago they changed it to an 855am flight but did not adjust our connecting flight so we had a 3-hour layover in Denver. It seems like when you have a very short layover you have to run to your next gate. Well we had a 3-hour layover and were initially scheduled to leave from the same gate we had arrived at. Later they changed it to one gate over.

    Our flight left late and it was pretty crowded and the seats were close together but fortunately the flight was under two and a half-hours. We landed at 407pm PST and were home by 5pm by taxi.
