Day 1: From Zurich to the "World"

We kicked off our holiday by paying Starbucks Coffeehouse at Zurich Airport a visit. Susanne's parents treat us to a delicious Java Chip Frappucino.

Our US Airways flight first takes us to Philadelphia. From there we catch a flight to Orlando. At Orlando International Airport, we board a Disney's Magical Express bus which takes us to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Our luggage is being taken care of by Disney - it'll be delivered to our room some three hours later.

We get a nice room at the really far end of Animal Kingdom Lodge. The balcony is facing Sunset Savannah, home to different kind of african wildlife like Reticulated Giraffe, Ankole (Watusi) Cattle, Ostriches, Antelopes and many more.
