Story so far...we have made it from the UK to Orlando...we have checked in at Coronado Springs Resort only to be told we have been upgraded to the Wilderness Lodge...
The staff at Coronado Springs were lovely, especially Devon & Toni who helped organise a taxi to take us and our luggage to the Wilderness Lodge and who stayed with us until we were safely on our way.
The taxi ride gave us all chance to breathe and reaffirm that what we thought was happening was actually happening. Even the kids knew this was a big deal.

The fantastic service continued with the lady at check-in who sorted everything for us in a blink of an eye, and also commented 'oh you've got an upgrade to a courtyard room'. What? Another upgrade? What's a courtyard room? Everything was happening so fast!
|Checking in, still pinching ourselves!|
We then headed off to our fifth floor courtyard room...well how lovely was our room!! We had the traditional towels in the shape of a tri-circle Mickey on one of the beds, a beautifully decorated room, stunning bathroom/vanity area and to top it all we had our own balcony that looked out over the stunning courtyard. We were all once again speechless...but very, very happy.

But when we got to our room there was another surprise in store for us...some music...which Simon and I instantly recognised as the Electrical Water Pageant. I went out onto our balcony and looked to my right and sure enough I could see out onto Bay Lake and catch sight of most of the pageant. The water pageant was on our list of 'must do's' for this trip as it had been a fair few years since we had last seen it so it was amazing to see it on our first night and know that we would be able to see it as many nights as we liked.
A perfect ending to an amazing first day :)
