Cruisin for a bruisin: Our Fantasy Vacation 9/29-10/6

We had an amazing time on our very first cruise on the fantasy this past week! But somehow, my son ended up with a black eye and I had bruises all over my arms and legs I guess we were just having too much fun

Day 1
We left our home in Cordova, TN (just outside of Memphis) around 9:30 pm on 9/26 for the 13 hour drive (plus and extra hour due to changing time zones) to Orlando. My husband was such a trooper and drove the whole way. My son slept through the whole night and was such a great little traveler. I slept for maybe about 2 hours, but was too uncomfortable to sleep the rest of the way. We decided that we will no longer drive in the middle of the night! We stopped in Gainesville for breakfast and to drive by our alma mater (Go Gators!). We arrived to Orlando around 11:30 and were able to get an early check-in at the Hilton Parc Soleil . Wow this place was beautiful. I will post some pictures later if I can figure out how to do it. We shared a two bedroom suite with my mother and stepfather who drove up from s. fla to see us for the weekend. It looked brand new with hardwood floors and beautiful furnishings. We put down our luggage and changed into our swimsuits to head to the pool. The pool area was huge and had an awesome water slide that my son probably rode about 30 times! We had a really yummy lunch poolside and just relaxed by the pool for a while. After my family arrived we went to dinner at T-REX in Downtown Disney. This place is great for young boys. The food is a little pricey, but IMHO is much better than Rainforest's food. We walked around downtown disney for a while until my son fell asleep in our arms and then headed back to the hotel for bed.
