Can't wait to hear about MK!
We really like that hotel! I was actually surprised that we got that view, because they charge more for the "Disney Views", but the view we had was just as good as the more expensive one would be!

I loved the rental car, and I've decided I want one now! (It's a 2012 Kia Forte)

After about 20 min we decided to call and ask someone to look at it, normally we wouldn't care and would just have gone to bed but with DS's asthma, if the room was the slightest bit too cold he would wake up coughing and wheezing..((Which would lead to a not so fun B2B cruise)) Anywho, someone came up and told us they normally dont have the heat activated because people dont usually use it..He had to open a large vent in the ceiling to turn it on, all of a sudden we heard a gush of water! There was a build up in the vent and the water went everywhere!!! Can you even imagine having to switch rooms at 1am when you are trying to finish packing for a cruise and having to be up at 7am! I was not a happy camper!
That's not good!! I know what you mean about the asthma situation. I think I mentioned that DD has asthma, too. This was our 2nd stay there, and we didn't have any problems, but with a large hotel such as this one (18 floors I think I remember that right), I imagine they do have glitches here & there. Even as hot as FL is, I wonder why they wouldn't have the heat activated, especially in November!

Thursday, June 14


We made it to MK about 9:30am. We seem to never get to the parks at opening time!



We checked the wait times for pics with Mickey, but it was too long, so we got a pic with Statue Goofy:




We went into a few stores, and we came out of a store to see the band playing (What's the name of it??). You've probably all seen them, but have you seen them from behind?? I thought the backside of their outfits were too cute!!








We then came across the Mayor and this lady (??). DD met the same lady last year on our trip.





And there's the lovely blue building, obstructing views of the castle!









And the construction crane in the backgrounds:





We headed off for Adventureland!




I really wanted a Dole Whip for breakfast , but they weren't open yet!




We rode the Jungle Cruise, with a 25 minute wait:





We caught the last few minutes of this show:






Then rode Pirates of the Caribbean with a 10 minute wait:






As we came out, we seen Pirate Goofy!






(Continued...)

We then headed to Haunted Mansion, and there was a 15 minute wait.





This guy was really into character, and had some fun with DD, and as she wanted a pic, he just stood there, looking crazy :





Pics of Fantasyland & construction:












We got in line for Philharmagic, with a 15 minute wait:



We then made our way back to Main St, for lunch at Casey's Corner!!






More MK coming up:

She's a suffragette. Think of Winifred Banks from Mary Poppins.

What a great trip you are having already! The room at Best Western looks really nice and has a great view! I loved the pic of your lunch at Caseys - what kind of hot dog was that? It looked yummy

It was a BBQ slaw dog. It was a standard hot dog, with BBQ (pulled pork kind, I think) and slaw on top, then topped with BBQ sauce. DD ordered that, but probably only ate about half of it. (It's huge!) I had a few bites of it, and it was really good!!
