DISNEY WORLD 2009 - arrival day & Parks Day 1

I am so ready to go back. I had a blast and even though it was alot of walking, humid, sweating, It was a magical vacation.
We left late on Friday Sept 11, about 8:30pm. Paul was still on his night schedule so he drove all night, and the whole way. It rained pretty much the whole drive there. We arrived at the resort about 12:30 noon on Saturday the 12th, which was good time, we stopped a couple of times of course for gas and bathroom breaks, and food once, since we had sandwiches snacks and drinks in a cooler in the van. We checked into our hotel, which we stayed on Disney property at the Pop Century resort. After we checked in, we didn't do much. We left Paul in the room to catch a much needed nap, and the girls and I took the van to Down Town Disney, and took a stroll around there to check it out.
Valerie sleeping on the drive to Florida.We got closer to our destination, and we saw this bad wreck. a Truck had flipped over the guardrail. Lots of people were stopped to render aid.Don't laugh, but I started to tear up when I saw the sign and told the girls "look we are at Disney World!" they shouted and screamed in joy, lol!! our hotel Down Town DisneySunday went to the Magic Kingdom park. It pretty much rained everyday, at least a little, nothing we had to run to get out of though, well except when we got in line to ride the Haunted Mansion, it poured as soon as we got under the covered sidewalk, then it was gone by the time we got out.The first thing we rode was the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, which was one of the girls favorites. Us on the ride, of course dark. After that we rode the Haunted Mansion, then headed over to Its a Small World. Daddy with the girls going to the ride.Riding Dumbo ride.. my first time even though I have been 2 times to DW and 1 time to DL
Merry go round. There was enough ponies to go around so Paul and I rode too, lol!
race track, Veronica got to "drive"Swiss Family Robinson Tree house. We had watched the movie about 2 weeks before so they knew what it was all about.
After the park we had reservations to have dinner at Chef Mickey's inside the Contemporary Resort hotel right down from Magic Kingdom. On the looooong walk there, the girls took a snoozer lol. We had walked ALOT!
At first Veronica did not want to get up with the characters, but after we bribed her with ice cream, she got up and was excited to see the characters.ahh what a day... Day 2 coming soon
