Alrighty then. Where was I? Ah yes, the view.
It’s taken with a zoom lens from the third floor of the backside of the 80’s building. I can’t remember the actual room number but it was 73something-something (54, I think). It’s THE longest walk from the lobby. And at 12:30 in the morning, all we wanted to do was get some sleep. But I did notice the lit up WDW sign off in the not-too-far distance so took a picture the next day. A nice zoomed in picture, actually taken from a few doors down. But I’m getting ahead of myself, aren’t I?
Day 1, Sunday April 5
To say we were excited is an understatement! To say we were nervous about the weather forecast of the day is also an understatement. Our good friend, Loretta (yes, that’s WDWRules) kept me updated on the weather in Milwaukee where we were flying out of. Forecast . . . 5-8" of wet snow. Yee hah. We gave ourselves plenty of additional time to make the hour drive to the airport, and wah-lah, the weather forecast was waaayyyyy wrong. There was nothing! No snow, no rain, no nothing. Sometimes it[B] is[/B] okay when the meteorologist is WRONG! :happy:
We experience a very on-time and uneventful flight to Orlando, which is always a good thing. Luggage rolls out on the conveyer belt in a relatively short period of time. Another good thing. And off to Magical Express for our first time ever. We’re on the bus in no time at all, along with maybe five other families and the driver makes an announcement that was music to our ears. . . Pop Century is the first stop. Ah. Perfection so far. (And we’d definitely do ME again!)
We arrived at Pop around midnight, I guess. Maybe a little after. Checked in, only to discover that we’re taking a hike. A long hike. To the backside of the 80’s building. I asked the CM if there was another room available and was told that we’d be put on the list for a room change in the morning. Eh, the long hike won’t kill us. :pinch: We didn’t bother to unpack much and put our weary heads to rest. We were at WDW. All was good. :happy:
Short but sweet and the end of day 1.
(This was a good thing to start tonight. It was rainy and snowy and windy today. I needed a fun reminder of how and where I really did get this tan!)
