Happy New Year! Up and kids left in room while Caragh and Jason went to breakfast invite with our "personal hotel hotel" - really a timeshare sales pitch. No such thing as a free breakfast. Salesperson terribly disappointed when we rushed of to car transfer to change hotels without signing up. Car to Disney's Animal Kingdom. Beautiful hotel, giraffes, zebras, antelopes running free in grounds outside room. but...realise we'd left back pack with gear and three iPads in car (hence, all blogs late). Tried all day to work out with car company whether they had it. Late in evening success. Arranged to pick up next day. Some relief. Meanwhile, off the Disney Studios. But...wristband tickets didn't work. Hadn't been linked electronically properly to our booking. More palaver (Caragh's word of the week). Guest service guide eventually sorted. Disney, out of this world. All rides breathtaking, each world more jaw dropping than the next, and Christmas light show made us giggle like school kids. Really liking the you get kids rides like Toy Story as much as big kid sensory overload stuff. Laughed at Disney crossed with Star Wars memorabilia. R2D2 with mouse ears is an "Only in America" moment. Sore feet and tired made it onto bus back to hotel.
