So ten hours in a car and now I'm here! Funny thing is was that I wasn't hysterical in the car at all when I was coming to Disney. I was quiet and calm. But I'm elated now that I'm here! I've been feelin' a bit bad recently and have been coughing. But by tomorrow I shall be rested and ready for my first full day at Disney! I'll be a blogging! ...
The weather wasn't too bad really. Well, it was. We saw some of the biggest electrical storms I've ever seen. But they didn't really affect us too much - we just sat in the hotel and watched the lightning.
Our next destination is Miami, and instead of getting a bus, we have decided to hire a car and drive ourselves. Should be interesting!
Wish you were here!
P.S. I forgot to mention that Gareth Bale was at Busch Gardens!
Your mission, should you accept it is to join us on a short journey through Disneyworld.
Sunday we spent avoiding the wind chill to 43 degrees, threw on nearly all the clothes that we brought and wandered Disneyworld free areas for the evening. Monorail rides, micro brew pub, Irish pub...all good.

We arrived about 1 AM, and could not get in past the gate as the directions for the keypad to open the gate would not work. We were tired from a long flight and I was starting to wonder what we would do when a vehicle pulled up behind us and a young man came up and entered his own number, which gave us entry. Driving in we soon found the main building and the night staff were very friendly and helpful. After signing us in, we followed the one staff member to our condo where he showed me how the keypad worked for the door. On entering, we were very impressed. The place was very clean, big and surpassed our expectations.
During our week long stay we enjoyed the pools (2) and I even used the exercise room once. The location is excellent, as it is only 2 miles from Disneyworld's Animal Kingdom. The facilities, as I said, were very nice and we enjoyed our stay a lot and would definitely go again. The place were were in had a hot tub (which had to be topped up once, and this was done quickly), 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, fully stocked kitchen, laundry, living room and 2 TV's.
The only problem we might have had was to find the place the first time. Thank goodness for GPS, as it took us right there, or we would never have found it.
