We then had to go to check in, and we were served by Kathryn who was in training, or as Disney put it "earning her ears". She floundered around on her computer screen ...

We had caught a bug in Belize (possibly from the rice) which left us feeling pretty grotty most of the week. Although we were grateful that we could still visit the theme parks, Shane in particular was gutted that he couldn't make the most of the huge American sized portions of artery blocking food! ...
