New Year in Orlando
An excellent place to stay. The view from the lounge over the pool to the lake on the first morning really set us up for a greta holiday - the red sky and the steam rising over the lake was truly lovely. We even photographed an eagle on an adjacent roof one day.
The house has everything you need and more besides. Having wifi was great as we were able to decide our routes in a morning and to keep in touch. The house has cooker, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer as well as tv/dvd and ipod dock although we only actually used the cooker to make tea in a morning and the tv/dvd to watch a movie one night.
We went to Epcot for New Years Eve – we were told to be there by 9.00am because they close the parks when they are at capacity so we did. In fact I think people were still coming in after 11.00. We watched the fireworks at 6.30 so that we could decide the best place to stand for the midnight fireworks. They were absolutely spectacular !
However, the other 75,000+ people in the park also wanted to leave as soon as it was over and their organisation was so bad that only one exit from the carparks was open – we sat in our space without moving for 2 hours by which time tempers in the carpark were distinctly frayed. We finally drove into the drive (and into the garage through the electric door!) at exactly 3.00am !!! And the 40 minute queues for the loos was extraordinary – how a place like Epcot can have so few loos was beyond me. Despite that and the exiting debacle, it was a fantastic night and to be recommended!
Harry Potter World at Universal is superb – magical – even better than I anticipated.
Jill gave excellent customer service before we left and I would highly recommend anyone to stay in her house.
