Traveling to Disney
I was never a big fan of Disney growing up - it never really tickled my fancy. However now that I have kids I figured they'd enjoy it.
Disney is now the owner of both Star Wars and Marvel, so their offerings extend well beyond the mind numbing Mickey and Friends, and their unhealthy princess fetish.
So we contacted a friend of my wife's, Missy, who is a travel agent for Disney, and started making plans.
Last Sunday we headed out to the airport on our way to Orlando, and the Disney World resorts contained therein.
It was the first time either of my kids flew on an airplane, or really even seen any part of an airport aside from baggage claim, so it was a new experience for them.
Zeke found the moving walkways fascinating.
Both kids handled it wonderfully.
Disney handled all our checked bags, so once we checked in to our flight in Charlotte, we didn't see our bags again until they were delivered to our resort room in the hotel.
We stayed at the Port Orleans Riverside resort, which is a Disney property located on their land, but not directly connected to the parks.
This was the building we stayed in.
Tomorrow we hit our first park - should be exciting!
