Here now...with the in-laws!
I am hoping to give some brief updates as our trip goes along.
Cast: Hubby, me, and our two daughters (Tink and Goofy) are DVC members and have a few trips to WDW under our belts. Along with us this time are my husbands parents, his brother and sister-in law, and their son (age 7) and daughter (age 4). They are all pretty much Disney virgins, so I feel a bit of pressure to make sure everything goes smoothly and everyone has a good time. This trip is special because it is my MIL's 60th birthday on Thursday, and the trip is a gift for all of us from her (I know, crazy MIL, it should be the other way around)!
We are staying in 3 studios in Jambo House. My MIL rented the points through David's. We usually stay at Kidani, so Jambo is a nice change for us. We're on the 5th floor, down the Zebra Trail. Even though the rooms aren't classified as Savannah view, we do have one. We had a picnic on the balcony for dinner tonight and enjoyed watching the giraffes, an ostrich, and a wildebeast.
Yesterday we woke up at 2:30am in order to be at Pearson Airport for 3:15am because our flight was at 6:00am. Well, I don't think anyone really slept the night before (we stayed at the Sheraton attached to the airport for convenience). It took forever to get through customs etc. We always fly out of Buffalo and it seems so much faster! Anyhow, the flight was fine, got a bit of sleep at least. We arrived at Jambo House at about 10:30am.
We spent some time having breakfast/lunch at Mara and looking aroung before our rooms were ready (which was by about 12:30). The kids were all anxious to go swimming, so we all headed over to Kidani because the Jambo pool was closed (not just the slide). Everyone enjoyed relaxing for awhile, spent a bit of time in the room getting organized.
We headed out to Epcot at 4:00 because we had a dinner reservation at Via Napoli. We had to exchange our PAP vouchers when we got there, which went smoothly (you do it right at the regular ticket window). We SLOWLY made our way over to Via Napoli for a terrific dinner. We made our way SLOWLY out and were back at the resort at 8:00pm. Needless to say we were all exhausted, and now that I think about it I can't believe nobody had a meltdown! Straight to bed when we got back.
