Finally here

So, after booking in September last year we are finally here.

We were supposed to be on the Dreamliner flying from East Midlands, obviously that didn't happen but can't complain about the 767, it was an old First Choice plane but I found it comfortable enough.

The flight was fairly routine, time passed pretty quickly, it got a bit exciting has we approached Sanford as there was thunder and lightning all about. To compound that, once we landed we were just behind a Thomas Cook flight so there was a lengthy delay in customs but its just one of those things.

Got to the hotel, booked in then went for a walk around and a quick beer, tried to stay up as long as possible, made it to 11:30pm US time so did ok, but was still up pretty early.

Went for breakfast at Denny's then the welcome meeting at the Hotel.

Went to the pool for a dip because its gorgeous weather, DW is now having a quick power nap then we are going to do a spot of shopping.

Universal Studios tomorrow, I'm looking forward to that.

It's great to see all the places mentioned on the forum over the last 10 months, still can't believe I'm here... More reports to follow

A welcome meeting?! Years of working in a hotel in a management capacity, i have never held any "Welcome Meetings".

As for the 787, with all the problems that Boeing are having, I bet you're glad now that you could not get it.
