We have arrived......

Flight was on time, 11am out of Manchester. Fairly smooth and arrived ahead of schedule. However, they only had pasta and curry left by the time they got to the back of the plane (we were in row 64). Hubby is a fussy eater so ended up with 2 bread rolls and a bag of crisps we had put in the hand luggage. I had the pasta but it was all dryed up and the 'sauce' was non existent. Was told if hubby didn't like the food he should have packed his own!!

Anyway landed at 3.15pm and started queuing for immigration at 3.35pm which took roughly an hour. Luggage collected and then went to pick up the car from Alamo, I had done Save Time so it all went smoothly but hubby couldn't resist when they said they would upgrade us to a brand new Chevy Impala for the price of a standard, cost approx £160 and its great.

Collected code for the villa from rental company at Formosa Gardens and went to Winn Dixie's for a few essentials. Found the villa easily and its beautiful with a view over a lake, we unpacked followed by a trip to Dominos for pizza washed down with an ice cold Coors light. Writing this and trying to stay awake a while longer but my body is telling me its 2.30 in the morning and I've been up since 5.30, won't be long till I'm asleep. Will report again in a few days.

Another fussy eater here. I always take food with me, it's surprising how hungry you get on a long haul flight.

traditionally, our last meal in Orlando before we fly home is usually spent at the cheese cake factory - I stuff my face there and have a turkey and bacon sandwich (can't remember what it's called) to go. Then when these crappy plane meals come around, I tuck into my lovely sandwich.

Ah cheeky airlines telling DH he should've brought his own food!! Problem is you never know what you're going to get so how would one know whether one likes it or not. Stupid!!!

Anyway glad you've had a good start. Let the fun times roll :-)
