Day 249: Disney World!

We opened the day at EPCOT. The girls' jaws dropped when they saw Spaceship Earth looming in front of them! They went berserk! As soon as we walked in, we saw a few characters out for photographs, and the girls were seriously beside themselves! The lines to greet the characters were short, so we saw them all!

Our first ride was Soarin', a simulated hanglider ride over the major parts of California. The girls loved it and so we rode it again. We spent some time in the aquarium with Nemo, and indulged in my favorite ride, Journey Into Imagination with Figment.

We played in the super fun fountains that squirt water from spot to spot, even leaping 10 feet over the sidewalk. Dad got a little vacation silly and tried slapping the stream of water. And shockingly, he got wet. The girls loved the fountains, so we were there for a while. We headed back for naps at the hotel (Port Orleans, Riverside) in preparation for the next big event: dinner with Cinderella at Cinderella's Castle!

Stitch was the first character the girls saw, and they rushed up to see him. I've never seen Brooklyn so excited (until the next day)!

The girls in front of Journey into Imagination. A cool, all-glass building that houses my favorite character: Figment (of the Imagination).

What do you get when a vacation-silly-Granddad slaps at a stream of water? Yup…a wet vacation-silly-Granddad.

As hot as it was that day, the "shower" I received slapping that big squirt felt pretty good!!!
