Day 1! Well we made it. I've been with my MIL for over 15 hours straight and haven't wanted to strangle her or anything. This trip might be okay. Maybe. Well, I'm not going to get my hopes up just yet. Our travel was smooth. The only hiccup we currently have is a rather ill Tigger. I knew something was up when I gave him the ipad on the plane and he watched half an episode of Doc McStuffins and then said he was done. Then he proceeded to lie on me and stare off into space the remainder of the flight. I gave him some tylenol as soon as I got access to my check through, and when I took his temp back at the hotel it was 99.8, so there is definitely a little bug there. How big is yet to be determined but there are some good signs. 1. He had enough energy this afternoon to request to go swimming (we went swimming in the giant tub together) 2. He is still eating, albeit a little, he is still eating so that's a good sign. Hopefully he'll wake up tomorrow and be a new man. So on our way to AKL we made it to Disney property and ran into construction cones and then were forced to turn left or right when we really wanted straight. Hmmm....seems we had forgotten it was marathon weekend and the marathoners were still marathoning around 12:00. So we chose right, immediately got lost, but decided instead of trying to find our way back to the hotel we would just head to downtown disney for an Earl of Sandwich Sandwich. I think everybody else in all of Disney had this same plan. We arrived at downtown at 12:04, drove for quite some time before finding a spot. I opted to stay in the car because Tigger had fallen asleep, while MIL and Grizzly went and got sandwiches. Grizzly reports that the line was actually outside and around the corner of EOS. What is even more crazy is that Grizzly stood in this humungous line twice!! Once for his sandwich and then once again for mine because he wanted mine to be hot. What a crazy sweetie. He totally would have gotten a cold sandwich if I had been the one to go. MIL earned bonus points by claiming that it was the best sandwich she had ever had. We didn't even really say much about it before hand, only that we liked them. So we'll give MIL 20 points for liking EOS, I'll take them away as she gets on my nerves. Now at this point MIL is already totally impressed with everything she has seen. She is in awe of how well the grounds are maintained, and can't believe the size of the place. She also thinks our hotel room is amazing (she's smitten with the marble counters), and she also liked the Safari Amber beer so now she's up to 25 points. Tigger and I lounged in the room, took a bath and watched the Duffy channel (a never ending loop of classic Mickey cartoons). He's feeling lousy and didn't even want to play the hide the pillow game. At 5:10 we all left, even Tigger and went over to Jiko for dinner. MIL's treat. That place was fabulous. I thought the food was delicious (sorry no pictures), but my favorite favorite part was the seagull lights all over the ceiling and walls. I wanted to take all of them. They were so cool. Tigger lasted through the appetizer course, then I pulled his chair next to mine and he laid down and fell asleep with his head on my lap. This marks the first time he has EVER fallen asleep anywhere other than his bed, his car seat or his stroller. This kid has never fallen asleep with his head in my lap before. Oh wait, there was about 20 minutes on the plane this morning. I feel bad for him, hope he gets better soon. So tomorrow we have EPCOT if Tigger is good. If not I will send MIL and Grizzly to HS since there is not much there for Tigger anyways. One more note about Jiko, we got the peppermint Creme Brulee and it was delicious, except we each got one, and we had enough for 6 people. I'm quite full at the moment! I know there were quite a few of you who said you were following along, so if there is something that you care about let me know and I'll be sure to add that in with more details. Oh, our room was ready when we arrived around 1:30. I'll also be adding more pictures, and I apologize for their large size, but I can't shrink them until I get to a computer, my phone and ipad just can't seem to do it. They don't look bad on the DIS ap though, but for those on a computer...so sorry!
