The villa is nice. Broadband is broken but the management company was right on the case.
Paid Vodafone £5 for access to 4G today to get by.
Benny gets right into the sunshine.
He spied on Mel in the pool.
He's already nerded out at the local Radio Shack.
Hydration is important when you have a heavy space suit.
Not his usual understanding of a screwdriver.
Benny ensures he gets his 5 a day. He loves the fruit out here.
Benny very much approves of the sign on the villa microwave.
Ah. How I missed these.
Benny was impressed with the snacks his mum found.
As Sherlock said when he tipped curd down Watson's back, lemonentry my good Doctor.
We booked a night at the Hard Rock hotel for the Halloween horror night
but the RIP tour which guarantees you straight into all the haunted
houses was full, we figured we could easily upgrade our fast passes but
But all was good in the end. We got the RIP tour for tomorrow. They
refunded all our tickets and reissued for just $50 which is a no queue
steal and deal. Hotel.com also were happy to move our reservation too.
So steak in the villa, a laugh at Ian Ushers picture and a film. Result.
So with heavy heart we stroked good bye to the cat and headed off to that place we all frequent.
14 days, comprising of 9 days of Villa, an Animal Kingdom savannah view
night, a Hard Rock Night to get early access to Harry Potter, and 3 days
in the Hilton so we can hop over the street to the DTD bus station.
Normally when you get near the M25, which I swear is owned by NCP, it's a nightmare.
Today, not so bad!
The sign has been pressed so many times in the lift, it's been worn out.
People clearly don't see the buttons four times it's size to the left of it.
Premium Economy upgrade for £67 each and 12k air miles!
Reeeeesult. I thought such things were tales told by drunken Virgin Atlnatic flyers of yesterday.
But seriously, this is the first time we've scored it in over 7 years.
Bulkhead seats too, for the cherry on the cake. Makes up for this
morning business issues I really didn't need to be woken up for.
Both good, bad and sometimes amusing.
Just enough leg room for me :-)
It should be noted both Mel and I are posting on these trip reports
Normally we plan our trips like a military operation but this time very
little has been set in stone, and if it has it's because we had too.
The main reason for heading back this year at this time is to see the
Christmas stuff, such as the Osborne lights and Mickeys party, whilst
still catching the Halloween events and the food and wine festival.
Based in a villa in Orlando we are also doing a night in Sarasota as Mel
wants to visit The Salty Dog restaurant; one of the Man Vs Food places
Mel likes to frequent.
A night at the hard rock hotel for the Iniversal Horror nights and that's it for hotels this year.
