Well we are here at Animal Kingdom Lodge in the Kilimanjaro Club with a room on 4th floor looking over the Savannah. We will have to take their word that we have a Savannah View as it was dark when we got here. Tonight’s Orlando Live 2016 will be pretty short as I am shattered. Photographs etc. will come tomorrow.
Well the Kilimajaro Club looks excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is one of the best themed of the Disney World hotels I have visited. I will publish photos in next few days of the hotel.
The journey itself wasn’t so good. Virgin Atlantic as with previous trips continues to disappoint. If only they invested as much in their service as they do their adverts saying how sexy they are. No food choice for yet another trip and what we got was fairly inedible plus a mediocre entertainment system. Compared to BA at Christmas the experience was poor. However; we got their safe and that is the main thing. We are in premium economy back and I understand Virgin provide a good experience here. Although last time we travelled Virgin Premium economy I did say I would never travel with them again.
US immigration was horrendous as Virgin was the last of several flights arriving in quick succession. We did have some success though as for the first time all 4 of us managed to succeed with the electronic immigration machines……highlight of the day as it avoided another 1 hour wait.
Disney Magical Express got us to the hotel. The magical aspect of it this time was the wasn’t any coaches! They did eventually arrive and we were taken too the hotel by someone called Kenneth Williams. Mr Williams was a jovial chap but the wasn’t any Carry On or Willo the Wisp impressions(apologies for anyone who isn’t British or under 40 as this probably means nothing to you).
That is pretty much my first day…I am shattered and off to bed. Hopefully some of this blog made sense as I am falling asleep writing it. EPCOT tomorrow refreshed and ready to tackle the parks.
See you tomorrow on Orlando Live 2016
