just arrived

Arrived about 6:30 pm. Staying offsite tonight, and checking in at Pop tomorrow morning for 6 magical days. Had a wonderful dinner at rainforest cafe in dtd. Great start to the trip. Quite crowded with what appeared like cheerleaders and locals. Will update tomorrow. Exhausted after 12 hours on the road.

I know the cheerleaders from my son's school are there now - I believe there is a big cheerleading competition going on this weekend.

There are always cheer competitions, dance competitions, etc. in Orlando. This weekend is the Florida State Fair in Tampa with a huge Florida wide cheer competition. I wouldn't think they would be staying 45 minutes away at Disney but you never know. Also it could be a different cheer competition going on.

We just got back yesterday and the cheerleaders were EVERYWHERE. Also a few large groups of girls who were Brazilian. They were all VERY well behaved and polite wherever we saw them--there were just a lot of them!
