Ahhhh, made it. Now this is one sizeable airport. Grabbed our rental vehicle (volkswagon jetta), then popped up to grab our bags. We wanted to get ahead of the lines at the car rental desk - turned out to be a great decision cause we headed to grab our bags and they were putting them aside - no waiting. Love it.
So, the ride (we forgot our GPS at home - so I'm sure you can see where this is going) was a bit of an adventure. We made one wrong turn and that cost us about 30 minutes in make up time. Frustrating at first, but then we were able to get back on track with the assistance of some directions (yes, we stopped for them) from a fella from 7-Eleven. Grabbed some coke zero cause we bought a bottle of Crown Royal for a whopping $27.00 at duty free!!!
When we arrived at the hotel we were very pleased to say the least. It was a nice hotel. Can't believe we are only paying $57/night for this place. Managed to get a 40% discount when I booked it online. It's right around the corner from Downtown Disney and on the Disney property. Awesome location and they have free shuttle to the various Disney properties - which is about $30 cab ride otherwise (each way). We got settled and had a couple drinks each, then crashed cause we were pretty tired from lack of sleep the night before. Zonkola...gone, out like a light!!!!
