On Tuesday the 14th we got to the airport in plenty of time. We actually got ALL our packing done the night before (and we only had to stay up until 3am). Now on previous vacations we have always taken very early morning flights because 1 - they're the cheapest and 2 - we get another day of actual vacation. However, it normally just sets the whole week up for being overtired. So, with 2 kids in tow this time we figured it would probably NOT be best to grab that 7:30am flight and we settled on a leisurely 1:30pm flight. We would get in around 4pm. I figured we'd check in to the hotel, have dinner in the food court and be at the Magic Kingdom for a few rides by 7pm...so, back to being on time at the airport...it was so stress free - we loved it. There was absolutely no line at security and we waltzed through. We checked the departures and were thrilled to see that our plane was actually on-time.
"Yay, we're on our way to Disneyworld!!!"
We grabbed a bite to eat at Chickie and Pete's and did all our last bathroom breaks. As I was walking back from the bathroom I noticed the departures had been updated and we were now about 30 min delayed...so we waited....and waited. I think we took off some time around 3pm.
Torturing your sister is always good for a laugh, too. Don't feel too bad for her though - she was moving her head TO him so that he COULD pull her hair...way to take one for the team Katie!
After we checked into our room, we walked around a bit on our way over to the very awesome food court. We got to see this gorgeous sunset - not Cinderella's castle..but still very pretty.
Max & Ruby!!!
Day 1 - over and done. Stay tuned for Day 2....family photo shoot and Epcot.
These definately aren't the greatest pics from our vacation...but it is PHRIDAY...so this will just have to do for our Friday Foto Finish Fiesta sponsored by Candid Carrie. Check out her site to play along or see who else is playing along.
