We stayed at the Art of Animation....
OK, why?
Well, there was myself and Mark, our 20 year old daughter and 12 year old son.... sleeping arrangements would not have been simple. So we chose to go for an AoA suite.
They have one double room with en suite, then there is a sofa bed and the dining table turns into a bed. (sounds odd I know but....)
Youtube Lion King suites at Art of Animation-It will give you a better idea.
But we loved it.
Only downside was the buses as we were in a value resort and furthest out. They were a bit of a pain but we got used to their timings :)

I havent given much background have I?
We booked with Thomson (but will book through Virgin for flights and WDW direct and Universal direct if and when we go again)
As I said, we flew with Virgin-Got bubble seats (There are economy seats to be had upstairs in the Bubble-some people feel its  clostraphobicbut we loved it)

Because we were in the Bubble, only first class got off the plane first.

Hire car-Anyone else have this?
we got to the car hire place where they said the car we had chosed wouldnt fit our luggage.
We were told we would have to upgrade for $700!
I said no and said I would get a taxi to the hotel and the family could go in the car......
The woman behind the desk wasnt impressed! She handed over our paperwork....
When we got to the garage we found that they were all out of our size car and we had to have a chevvy caravan-which is what they wanted to pay an extra $700 for the two weeks.
It was Marks pride and joy for the week!

Ah, the USA, where consumer protection is a bit of a myth...

The front desk probably knew you'd be getting the larger car because the other was not in stock, getting you to pay for the upgrade would have been pure profit on their part. Rather devious to be honest.

Very glad I don't have to deal with that on my upcoming trip. :)

Lovely photos by the way.
