I met Asp8tis and her family at the airport but due to Amanda being sick my intention was to not put them at risk of being sick so the greeting was limited.
We finally touched down in Orlando and hit Magical Express without a hitch we were on our way to Port Orleans. Delaney was in good spirits thus far after the flight and hustle through the airport. How could she not be in a good mood when ME was showing Chicken Little on board! She entertained the driver and others around us as she happily sang all the songs she heard and knew from the movie. We arrived at POR and checked in.
About 3 weeks prior I called to get names straightened out on our reservation about who was staying in what room. We had 2 rooms which we wanted adjoining but they had Amanda and my Dad in a room while I shared with Delaney and my Mom. Not a big deal until you realize the room charging challenges. It took a few minutes and a supervisor to straighten things out and we were on our way to 9212 Oak Manor!
Not a bad hike from Check in but we were on the backside of a rather large building but no biggie. The rooms were nice but SCREW THE ROOMS LETS GET TO MK!
HUH!? WHAT!? Dinner!? Awe Dang . . .
We grabbed Counter Service at POR on our way out and the food wasn’t bad at all. We had our first experience with the dining plan here and it went off without a hitch.
MY parents have never been to Disney and thus far are overwhelmed with all there is to see and do. The sensory overload was going to hit them just as much as Delaney in the coming days.
WE hustled out to get to MK and got there around 7:30ish. Delaneys first ride . . . IASW. We were hoping for Dumbo but the supressing heat and humidity of the seasons first Tropical Storm made the wait a bit out of the question. We then headed over to Peter Pans Flight before moving down Main St to take in Wishes.
Wow is Wishes cool. Shorter than I expected but Delaney loved it. She was trying to literally catch the fireworks but only after I realized she may have been chasing “Hidden Mickey” Fireworks . . . … We exited MK after Wishes to go break in the new rooms after a long travel day.
The luggage was waiting for us as promised per ME.
