Thanks Abby. Adam isnít a big drinker but he does love a Kentucky mule! Cooper is satisfied now he has had his chick fil a, he hasnít had one since our last trip in 2019, so that was an easy one to check off the list. Xx

A fairly swift Uber ride later ($50 including tip) they made it to the hotel. The Hilton at Lake Buena Vista is actually an Official Disney Partner Hotel, so there is some lovely Disney touches throughout.




They even wrapped the elevator doors!



The view of Disney Springs from their room. Itís about a 10 minute walk.


Dinner was an 8pm reservation at City Works. Cooper wasnít particularly hungry but Adam was doing his best to make sure they stayed awake for as long as possible, to avoid jet lag.

A Kentucky Mule for Adam and water for Cooper. You might be noticing a theme here 😉






They really enjoyed their meal and it was a perfect size to share.

Now Iím not sure if anyone is interested but Adam took loads of pics of spirit jerseyís in World of Disney ( he must have heard me mention it before he left 😉






And just a couple of nighttime Disney Springs pics.



We had a really good chat last night, they both are still slightly shocked that they are there. The plan for today is Cracker Barrel for breakfast and a spot of outlet shopping and then dinner at House of Blues at Disney Springs. 😁

Adam made himself a Kentucky Mule, Cooper had water and they both had the jerk chicken. Adam enjoyed it, Cooper wasnít a fan and just ate his pret roll.





They were off the plane quickly and Immigration was super swift. First ride of the holiday - the Monorail!



Hello Orlando!

A quick trip to Chick fil a at the airport. This has been on Cooperís Ďmust go backí list and he has been dreaming about it for 2 years. 😆





It was a good as they remembered and they are now in an Uber on their way to The Hilton. The plan is still to go to Disney Springs with a later dinner at Cityworks. 😁
Whoop whoop
Glad theyíre there ok
Photo of the airport gives me goosebumps 🙊
Canít wait to see their first full day 🇺🇸❤️

Abby, Adam said getting those spirit jersey pics were tricky 😳 apparently it was crazy in WOD and he feared for his life. 😱 He said Disney Mumís are scary 😂

I react the same way Claire, there is just something about the Hall at Orlando Airport that makes you tingly. 😆 I think there are pancakes on the menu this morning 😍😋

After a good sleep for Cooper (nearly 10 hours!) and a slightly shorter one for Adam (6.5 hours) they were up and out. They really like the Hotel and apparently you get given a welcome pack with a variety of vouchers in it. Adam was pleased with his free Starbucks filter coffee with half and half from the Marketplace in the Hotel Lobby. He said there is loads of choice for food and drinks if you wanted a quick breakfast. I believe they also do shuttles to Disney as well.






They caught an Uber to Cracker Barrel for Breakfast 🥞 which is their most favourite place for pancakes!






They loved it (I knew they would!) and then FaceTimed me from the shop to see if there was anything I wanted. It was fun to look at everything but nothing really took my fancy other than a huge Christmas sign which wouldnít fit in the luggage. 😬

They made their way to Vineland Premium Outlets and got straight into the queue at the Disney Store for me. They found this spirit jersey for $45 but as I havenít been to Disneyland and I donít have plans to go there anytime soon I thought it would be weird if I got it. I will just have to get a full priced Christmas one instead 😉

They did try to find something for me but didnít have any luck and are now off to look at every pair of trainers they can find! 😆

The plan is to shop, have a quick lunch and then head back for some pool time before their reservation tonight at House of Blues. The weather looks amazing. 🤩
