Back from our first family WDW trip! Had generally great weather, lots of fun, but the trip ended waaaaay too soon! We really needed 2 weeks to have time to see other things, like Kennedy, the coast, the outlets , and more time to just relax around the pool. One week just didn't cut it! Border crossings were uneventful, but the airport in Seattle was crazy busy! Nice flights, all on time. Arrived in Orlando really late on Friday the 12th, rented a car from National. Drove to our hotel--Sheraton Vistana--and settled in around 12:30 am. Saturday was a day to pick up a few snacks, head over to Downtown Disney, have a nap, check out the resort. We spent the evening at the Hoop De Doo. It was quite fun, even though we were seated up top (last-minute reservation) the actors still paid attention to us. On Sunday we went to Epcot (avoiding EE at MK), weather was beautiful. We went on Test Track and loved it! DH went on Mission Space using the single rider line, and was on within 5 minutes. He thought it was excellent. We did a quick tour of the WS, starting in Mexico. The film in Canada was disappointing--very 70's, very dated. Many people left half way through. I'm sure I saw that same film somewhere before--hopefully not when I was first in WDW 25 years ago! Then the beaver tail stand was closed! We had lunch at Teppanyaki's, and enjoyed it. Glad for the opportunity to get some veggies into DD! Monday was a hectic day at MK! Very busy, and the weather deteriorated throughout the day. That night, they closed some rides due to lightning in the area, then as we were walking to the Haunted Mansion, there was a HUGE crack of thunder and lightning right over us. Everyone in the area hit the deck! The CM there said "Welcome to the Haunted Mansion, folks!" Very creepy. Never heard thunder that loud before! Tuesday for MGM day, in the pouring rain! We were soaked to our socks! It eased off by the afternoon, and we saw the Beauty & the Beast show (4 for a dollar were super!), Ariel, went on TOT, and hit all our highlights. Wednesday & Thursday were MK days for us, with fireworks on Wednesday night. Friday was the long travel day. Some highlights of the trip: --DD got to wake up Tinkerbell in the shop on Wednesday, and is quite proud of her certificate. --we WALKED UP to CRT on the off chance there was a cancellation, and WE GOT IN!! So we had breakfast with the princesses!! Very lucky day! --LTT for dinner was excellent--good food, lots of character interaction. --DD brought a picture of Peter Pan that she'd drawn, hoping to give it to him. We saw Wendy, and asked the handler if Peter would be by, but she said he was done for the day. Wendy asked DD to sign the picture, and promised to deliver it to Peter for her! DD was so pleased! The weather was around 75-80 each day, even the rainy days. We really wished the trip didn't end so soon--next time it has to be 2 weeks!
