Disney Trip Report - Day 1 and Day 2

Day 1 - got up EARLY to head the Panama City Beach Airport from Destin. We finally told Sarah that she was going to Disney World once we arrived at the airport! I think she was almost more excited about going on the airplane!!

Panama City Beach Airport (brand-spanking new) is very nice and super easy to navigate! We were up and away and in Orlando by 11:00. A quick ride on the Magical Express and we arrived at Wilderness Lodge, checked in, headed to the room, put away the Garden Grocery items and then headed back down to eat lunch and then we were off to Magic Kingdom!!

Crowds were LOW LOW this day, so we were able to catch the tail end of the stage show at the castle, do lots of rides in FantasyLand, TomorrowLand and AdventureLand (Beth and SK's first ride on the Haunted Mansion and Big Thunder Mountain). We hopped back on the boat and had a super yummy dinner at Whispering Canyon Cafe at Wilderness Lodge- a must do again!! Downtime in the room and bedtime by 9:30!

Tuesday - up and out the door by 9:30...I think, but not before enjoying coffee and breakfast on our balcony overlooking the Courtyard at Wilderness Lodge.

We finished up Magic Kingdom and did everything we wanted to do - included Jungle Cruise, meeting a few characters, Pirates, Big Thunder Mountain and Haunted Mansion AGAIN and a few other things. I also finally got my pineapple float from the Dole Pineapple stand! YUM!!!!

Tuesday night -we headed to The Spirit of Aloha dinner show. I was low expectations going in, but it was really fabulous! We all enjoyed the show and the food! See next post for pictures!

Leia- EBAY and clearance for all our clothing! I don't think I paid more than $8 for any clothing item and that was the Belle shirt I bought Sarah on Ebay! I bought the Hawaiian leis at Big Lots at end of summer clearance for $.15 each! :-)
Days 3-5 to come later!
