Ritz-Carlton staff were very helpful. Thanks to Gina on reception who arranged a lovely birthday cake for my son who was celebrating his 12th birthday between Christmas and New Year.
Did all the Universal Studio, Walt Disney, Kennedy Space Centre etc, all good fun.
Book your tickets prior to going to Orlando they are much cheaper, We booked our week with the Expedia representative at the hotel, who was constantly busy and never answered the phone, so be prepared.
My one gripe was the bus trip to Kennedy Space Centre which was one hour away, we had to get a taxi to a restaurant 10 minutes away to be collected from there by the organisers, then on the way back it took a total of 3 hours to drop us back at the restaurant! because other people on the bus were getting dropped off at their arranged pick ups, the journey seemed to take forever and no videos or lighting was available to even be able to read ! It was such a long and boring trip back - the event managers could at least have laid on some entertainment or allowed the lights to be on in the bus so we could at least kill time by reading. That was the only disappointment on this trip and needs to be reviewed by Expedia on a better organised trip to Kennedy Space Centre - to be collected and dropped back at the hotel would be advisable!
