Day one is a rap!


Well, our day had a very magical beginning. Our flight got an early start, resulting in a very early arrival in Orlando. Found Disney’s Magical Express, and were wisked away to Port Orleans Resort – Riverside in just about an hour. A quick bite, and we were headed to the Magic Kingdom.

We rode It’s a Small World first, followed by THE Haunted Mansion, the Hall of Presidents, Mickey.’ Philharmagic, Peter Pan with a fastpass, Pirates of the Caribbean, Tiki Room,  and Jungle Cruise.

Dinner was at the Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh and Friends. While the meal was short of spectacular, our waiter, Kip, was entertaining and efficient. Character interaction was a definite highlight of the evening. Pictures all come at the end of the journey.

One final note…make use of all the PhotoPass people you can find. They are everywhere and quite good at creating some extra magic.

Tomorrow, Magic Kingdom, Part Deux.



Vacation begins, sort of

Well, this is the last day at work until February 13. Tomorrow begins the task of packing for 2 adults and three kids. DS is pretty much packed, but the rest of us haven’t started. Not bad considering he is not the most enthusiastic about the trip. I am still contemplating taking the computer to put pics on the blog. I’ll decide tomorrow.

It is my prayer that our travels go smoothly and without much incident.  Stay tuned!
