View Full Version : Family of Four Canadians First Trip to Disney - Day 11

01-09-2001, 11:03 AM
The date is December 28. We leave.


Tom - husband
Sherrie - wife
Heidi - daughter
Raymond - son

Mickey wakes us up for the last time. We look out the window and it is pouring down rain. This was the only rain day that we had on our whole 10 day vacation. Tom races to the gift shop because we realize that we have to buy another suitcase to get all our treasures home. Those refillable mugs took up way too much space. Our flight is at noon so back on the 18th we asked Tiffany Towncar to pick us up at 10. Sure enough when we got out front the resort, someone (I cannot remember his name) from Tiffany was waiting for us. On the way to the airport the driver and Tom talk all about Disney and Orlando and area. Very friendly driver.

At the airport we do the airport thing. Ate lunch at Pizza Hut. We leave on time, get to Toronto on time and then get to Ottawa on time. The temperature in Ottawa when we landed was 15 below zero celcius (sorry do not know fahrenheit). But there is about at 30 degree difference between Ottawa and Orlando. We were wearing our winter coats but not boots. Our shoes ended up totally soaked from the slush and snow. All I could think about was staying at the airport and getting on the next flight to Orlando. I still want to go back to Florida everytime I have to bundle up myself in my winter gear to go outside.

My mom met us at the airport and Heidi talked her ear off and then grandpa and her aunts ears off for the rest of the evening. It was definately our family trip of a lifetime

Going home is so depressing, especially when you know our cold Canadian weather is waiting! It sounds like you had a wonderful vacation. Thank you for the fun reports.
