Ok so my wifes cousin (DC) is in town and we have been going to WDW with him and his mom since he was 5 I think (he is 13 now). This is his first trip anywhere by himself so it was kind of a big deal to come all the way down here from Phily.
We got a late start out of the house due to some unforeseen issues (good stuff but it is not really Disney related so…). Instead of getting to MK at 8:30 we got there at 10:30. Parking was FREEEEE! All I had was my CC and the CC reader was down.
Took the ferry across which is always fun. Because we always stayed on property when we went with our cousins this was the first time for him to ride the ferry…as a 13 year old he was as you can imagine…impressed let us know that the ferry was ok but we had to ride the monorail on the way back to TT.
Ok so we get into the MK. The new RFID passes are great. The entry is much ummmm airer. Lots of room. It seems they were still working out kinks with them as most of the people in front of us had problems. Me…I was golden of course.
At this point I was by myself because the DW and DC both had to pee. I took the bags through bag check and told them I would meet up with them by the bathrooms.
(Boy why is he telling us…is it because he is a great guy or something else?)
Since you are wondering…it is because I am a great guy that started force everyone to drink water when they got up. In fact I made them drink a lot of water the day before. It was a very hot and humid day perfect for me to experiment…bwahaha. We all drank a normal sized bottle of water every hour (until 3 when it rain) minimum the day of. We drank two bottles of water between dinner and bed time the night before. Had a big glass of water with dinner. We had light breakfast, light lunch (bigger dinner the night before), and our splurge was dinner at Tony’s. Our energy level was excellent. None of us felt sick from the heat, no head aches, no sore muscles. I think the high temp yesterday was 94 and the sun and humidity was pretty high. They early hydration really was the key. And really once we got going in MK we didn’t really have to pee that much…
Talking about water…I have to go turn off my sprinklers. DC helped me put in our new hedge and now I have to keep that hydrated as well. While I am away everyone drink some water!
