Day Eight: Saying Goodbye

So today was my last day at the world of magic. I managed to get up early enough and got to Animal Kingdom before they opened. The park opened at 9 but they let us in almost 30 minutes early! I was able to see gorillas, bats, birds, elephants, rhinos, and dinosaurs! All by noon. […]

Day Six: Port Orleans Riverside

So today was a full day of visiting two of the three venues for our event site. Because the two hotels were in such close proximity to Downtown Disney we were able to eat lunch there and return afterwards so that we could use Disney’s transportation back to our resort. I spent the early part […]

Day Four: MGM

So MGM was awesome! We saw Dinosaur Gertie but she had closed by the time I swung by. So no ice cream bar for me. We had a great time watching the Indiana Jones show, which I heard is closing soon. And we played Toy Story Mania. And we had our famous burger at the […]

Just a few more days and we’ll finally be in DisneyWorld! Our daughter decided to surprise us by coming home for the weekend, so last night all we did was chat it up about our upcoming vacation. We’re already looking forward to some of our favorite rides like Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, and […]

Reservations Finalized!

So we finally heard back from Disney on Monday afternoon with our hotel reservations. Although we’re not staying where the event will take place next year, Disney was more than accommodating by placing us at a moderate resort with a very, very, reasonable rate. One not offered to the general public online. How could we […]

And the countdown begins

I recently found out that my workplace decided to conduct a site visit in beautiful Orlando for an upcoming event. Which means we will be THIS close to DisneyWorld! In less than 2 weeks! It worked out that I was able to take off a few extra days before our meeting so that my family and I […]
