It’s been 4 and a half years since we last went to Orlando, Florida. In fact, it’s been that long since we went abroad (thanks, COVID!)

On Friday, 11th August, we’ll be flying out for a 2 week break to Orlando (and Disney, obviously.)

I’ll be live-blogging on this page at key points during the day with updates and photos of our journey.


We started the day at 6:30am, arrived at Gatwick’s south terminal around 7:30am.

We had a long wait at check-in as they’d had problems with another flight so we’re focused on checking people in for that one first.
