I got my 4 parcels (3 Disney 1 Target) and everything is great! Only problem was Target sent a dark green polo instead of a Leopard print dress in the parcel?! I will shoot off an email but it's a pity because I bought matching ones (the other arrived) and the girls were going to wear them tomorrow for AK. It's not a big thing though and certainly won't spoil my day!

Going to spend today looking around the resort, will go to Artists Palette for brunch and maybe have a swim this afternoon. We have dinner at 1900 Park Fare tonight which I am really looking forward too
That is an amazing first nights sleep Dabecs. I feel sure this will stand you in good stead for avoiding a heavy dose of jetlag.

Sounds like you've got a beautifully relaxing first day ahead of you.

Dabecs, that sounds like an awesome way to spend your first day. Shame about the second leopard print dress.

Remember to try the strawberry soup at 1900 Park Fare.

I had enough time to get off the United flight from MLB to SYD walk/run round from one gate to the one next door via the toilets and to grab a bottle of water and board on my flight. They had already boarded all the Sydney travellers and were waiting on the Melbourne connection.

Hey Princess. How's your trip going? Hope you are having a blast. I'm sure it is flying past all too quick though

Quick update - I thought I would have more time/energy to write on here and the blog but I haven't! I have kept some quick notes for a proper TR when I get back (have taken about 350 photos since we left home).

Went to AK today - had so much fun Breakfast at Tusker House was a highlight. The girls were amazed by the characters and when Goofy held his ears behind him pretending to be my daughter with her ponytail she was over the moon!

Hope everyone who is on holidays are having as good a time as us!

Oh Dabecs, thanks for updating us. Sounds like the girls are having so much fun. I love Goofy, he's so funny.

That World of Disney store is huge! I remember what DTD was like when it there wasn't much more than Pleasure Island, it's changed a lot since then.

Sounds like you had a magical evening, thanks for sharing

By the time tomorrow comes round, my trip will be half over. It is going real fast.

Been having a great time.

Chasing nature and wildlife tomorrow. Temperatures are in the mid to high 70's with beautiful blue skies in NorCal. But Tuesday is another matter. Looks like rainy weather on the way.

Having the most amazing time so far! Yesterday was EPCOT - what a place! I think I could spend a month in the World Showcase alone And Soarin' - wow.

Lunch at Akershus was fabulous and Illuminations was the perfect end to another perfect day!

And what ride at EPCOT did we ride 3 times yesterday? You'll have to wait for the TR

Off to MK today but the crowd level has jumped from 3.something to 8.something because of FantasyLand previews! We won't get there till late afternoon - we all needed a sleep in and go slow morning today. Not aiming for anything in particular today, just soaking in the atmosphere.
