Hannah and I were excited when Nana, Tor, Josh and Daniel arrived yesterday! Tor had been to Disney one other time when Nana and I brought she and Rebecca back in January of 2008. She’d wanted to come ever since and she and Bec still say they’re going to do a grad trip in 2017. I hope it works for them to do this! This trip is a first for both Daniel and Josh and they’re excited. Unfortunately so excited that Josh started his trip with a tummy upset but we’re pretty confident is was just a combination of nerves and excitement. Once he had had a little breakfast this morning he was ready to go.
We started the day splitting up for a bit so that Tor and I could tackle Rockin’ Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror. Can I tell you that this sounded like a much better idea when we were way up in Canada than it did when we were standing in front of the Tower of Terror? I love RRC but wasn’t sure about ToT. in the end it was all great and we loved both rides! The quieter part of our group enjoyed, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ across the street.
We had a ton of fun this day and in fact so much fun that I totally forgot to pull out my camera. You know this is rare for me! We introduced the kids to Toy Story Mania (a hit for all), The Backlot Tour where Walt’s plane was decorated for the movie, ‘Planes’
The Great Movie Ride, Lights, Motors, Action; Voyage of the Little Mermaid and more. While the others dined at Mama Melrose’s for lunch Hannah and I took time to meet her old pals Mater and Lightening McQueen once again.
(The white thing around my neck is called a Frog Togg and it’s proving to be invaluable in managing the Florida heat. They really are a neat invention and work wonderfully!)
Tomorrow: Touring separately at the Magic Kingdom then meeting up at Kona Cafe for supper. Mmmm! Kona Cafe!!
