Finally in our room at AKV

We rented points for a Deluxe standard view villa, but we did get a savanna view in Uzima. It is a pretty good walk ,but that is ok...

Let me introduce our cast now that I am on my laptop.

Me-Michelle (The Mom)
Josie- DD(15)
Barb-(Grandma) My Mother

Girl trip!!!


So after we checked in our room was not ready so we headed to Epcot. The flowers are gorgeous!


The park was pretty crowded today for sure. We got a FP Soarin at 12:30pm and it was for 6:20 and so was Via Napoli so I used My Disney Experience APP to change our dining reservation to 4:30 and it worked great!

I had the rose petal infused Margarita at the Mexican Kiosk and it was wonderful, but very strong.

We were so glad we moved up dinner at Via Napoli. We were seated right away and we had a large pizza as I said earlier and the salad and it was all wonderful.


Then after dinner we made sure we got a Dole whip for dessert. The Spiced rum Dole whip was so good!!! Mom and I really liked it.


So everything went smooth today, but we are all beat!! After the Dole Whip we ended our day riding Soarin and then headed to AKV.

We are all showered and ready for a good night sleep!! Tomorrow is Animal Kingdom!!

So far all cast members have been so wonderful everywhere we have went.

I have to share one more thing. The topiaries at the F&G are pretty amazing!


See you all tomorrow!!!
