First time in Orlando for our family of 4, kids aged 7 & 9. Wifi is completely erratic, but I will do my best to do a live trip report. Bit of catching up to do first though as it's already the end of day 2 before I worked out the wifi.
Left 11am and arrived 3pm local time. Worst ever flight as it was really windy at MCO. I was still clutching my sick bag looking green once we had got through customs!
Picked up the Alamo car after declining an upgrade (our cases just fitted into our chosen car - who says kids need leg room and to be able to put their feet in the foot wells....) and the upgrade was nearly the same price again. And declining road side assistance insurance for just 4.99 per day! Annoyingly they have added $60 for a full tank of petrol without asking us. We were expecting to take it back empty but we didn't spot this until reading the paperwork once at the house.
Sat nav was great and got us straight to the property. Which is lucky as we don't seem to be able to understand the road signs.
First impressions is how huge everything is, roads, parking lots, beds, rooms, everything is spacious.
Checked out the house, free upgrade to 4 bed from 3 bed so tons of space. Then walmart for essential supplies. Managed to do groceries only then left without seeing the next 2/3 of the shop. Kids were about to drop down, it was 1am home time after a really late night the previous night and sadly no sleep on the plane.
We were all in bed by 9pm, felt like 2am, and we all slept until 5am although the adults did wake up a few times through the night.
