    We're the same as - by 9pm US time we're struggling as its 2am UK time and we've already done a full day's travelling. If I can get an hour or two's sleep on the way over, I find I can stay up a bit later on the first night - though I don't think we've ever made it past 10pm.

    I do love the first morning though - there's something about POR at 5am that I love. It's a really peaceful time to sit outside round a pool sipping coffee as the sun comes up. That's when I love jetlag!
    That's my favourite time of the whole holiday. Waking up at around 5am and taking a fresh stroll around the resort. Watching the whole place come to life as the sun rises always makes me feel like I have arrived in Florida.

    I want to stay up as late as I can first night there well till I get all the adrenalin rush out of my system, then it will be a new day with lots of excitement. Can't believe I am there in 3 months time

    The return flight is a completely different story. It's a night flight so you get a few hours sleep on the plane but as you are travelling East you basically miss a full night. We leave Florida at 7pm and arrive in the UK at 6am!

    Good luck
    We're exactly the same, we try to stay up till 9 but always wake up at 4/5 the next morning and wide awake too! Used that to our advantage last year as we had the early entry to Harry potter! Always feel like death coming back and again force ourselves to stay up till 9 o'clock ish! Fist time I went to Disney I slept for nearly 24 hours when we got back to uk!

    Coming back, i rarely sleep on the plane - not through lack of trying, it just doesn't happen!

    We always land at 7am(ish) and by the time we've got our cases, cleared customs etc, picked up the car, got home (via my parents' to pick up our dog and have a cuppa) it's normally around midday.

    I'll unpack, put a wash on then go to bed. If u don't, I feel terrible all day.

    I always set the alarm to just give myself 2 or 3 hours sleep and that just takes the edge off my tiredness for the rest of the day.

    I'll then stay up until 11 - 11.30pm and then set the alarm for 8am the next morning. I find that gets me back into UK sleep patterns pretty quickly - although I can still feel some tiredness for up to a week after we get home!

    I'm back at work the Monday after I come back I think so I cant be shattered as I operate machinery all day and take care of people. So think I might spend the weekend back sleeping

    We've tried all different methods of keeping the jet lag at bay upon our return to the UK but combining it with the holiday blues, nothing seems to work.

    Battered for at least a week and spend the majority of that time looking at my watch saying 'Epcot will be opening in an hour!' lol

    Arrived in Florida and at hotel (SSR) after flying from Manchester this morning and it's 11pm here - 4am UK time - and I'm still awake?!?! Shattered now though so I'm off to bed!

    Ps - hotel lovely and my first time in a Disney hotel so overwhelmed by 'Welcome home' comment.

    We will be at SSR in two weeks time, it's our third time there, it's a great resort. And can't wait.

    Has anyone ever stayed at the Hawthorn suits? We're booked in late September and just wondering if anyone had any feed back.

    Hi all UK members, I need a little help please.

    Our trip is all fully paid for including all of the tickets for every park (21 day Disney pass and 14 days Flexi Ticket).

    We have now managed to get the mother in law to come along for the first 6 days of the holiday (yes I know but it's a baby sitter and someone to help us with the 2 kids on the 9 hours flight, so worth it!).

    Anyway, we will be doing Disney for 5 days and Sea World for one day. What ticket should I get her?

    The 5 day hopper Disney ticket is only 20 cheaper than a 14 day Disney ticket so doesn't really represent value for money for me. I was thinking of getting the 14 day ticket as when she leaves we can keep the ticket for the remaining 9 days and use it to get fast passes. As we travel in Sept the queues are quite small but never the less it may save 10 minutes here and there.

    The other alternative is to pay on the day at Disney but this would work out more expensive!

    We may park hop but I don't think a non park hop ticket is a deal breaker.

    For Sea World we will just pay on the gate for her.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    In order todo fast pass with a ticket it has to go through the entry gate with finger scan. So sadly, no, you can't do the fp idea.
