disney! day one

My Mother's Day consisted of being up at 4:30 a.m. for a 7 a.m. flight to Orlando. Not only do I hate getting up early (and that is way too early), but anyone who knows me knows that I just love to fly! NOT. But, the boys did great and it was a non-stop flight, so it all worked out. It was a good day and a good vacation (and a good distraction for me so that I didn't think too much about how my Mom isn't here for Mother's Day) That means we got to Disney early and had the whole day ahead of us. But of course we all were tired and we were just going to do what we could. We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, which was closest to the Animal Kingdom park, so we decided to check it out. We stayed there for a few hours, and then all went back to the hotel and napped. After that, we got up and went back to Animal Kingdom park to have dinner at The Rainforest Cafe. We decided to take it easy after dinner and go swimming at the hotel pool. Only when we got there, it was closed due to “unscheduled maintenance”. Yeah, we all know what that means! So they had a small playground that we played at while we waited for it to re-open. After about an hour, we got to swim for a bit and then back in for the night! Magic Kingdom ahead for tomorrow!

Waiting at the airport.

View from our room. We could have had the animal savanna view for a few hundred dollars more a night, but really I think the boys were just as happy if not happier to have a pool view.

Our room. Complete with a Mickey towel set up on our bed.

Bus ride to the park. One of many!

Too bright for May May. HOT too!

This is a roller coaster ride called Expedition Everest. Owen rode it and kind of liked it, but after said, “I don't want to ride it again.”

Tricera-tops ride.

I rode that ride in the background with Owen a few days later.
