Our First Poly Vacation! April 14-21, 2012 - Live Report

Here's my first attempt at a live report for our trip which begins tomorrow! (Well, actually sort of starts tonight as we will be heading to check in at a hotel near the airport we're flying out of)

I'll do my best to put frequent updates on here! Also, as we will be touring Epcot on the 16th, and MK on the 17th, I hope to give you some live updates on the state of Test Track and Rapunzel's new meeting place and time.

My PTR link is in my signature if you would like to see what our general itinerary will be.

Disney, here we come!!

Just got SOAKED by Shamu! DD loved it. Had ponchos on but did nothing to protect the seat of my pants!

Turtle Trek still not open -was hoping for a soft opening but guess not.

Moderate crowds. Cloudy but perfect temp in the high 70s.
