Disney Day 1

Give Away: I bought a few items to give away while I was at Disney and I will do a drawing of everyone who leaves a comment by next Saturday.

We are back!! We had a great time and we are exhausted!! Our flight last night was delayed so we didn't arrive home until after 10pm and I had to teach Sunday school this morning.

Here is the first day of our seven day trip report. Hope you enjoy, oh and don't forget to leave those comments.

Last Friday we arrived in Tampa at 12am and by the time we found a hotel room and got in bed it was 1:30 am.

We got up Saturday at 6am and showered packed our cars and headed an hour down the road to Disney. We checked in to Port Orleans Riverside and met the Cotherans at the bus stop to make our way to Animal Kingdom.

By the time we made it to the front gate it was 9:30am. This is not my way of doing Disney, but we did the best we could because we couldn't get there any earlier. Our first stop was Dino Land to ride Triceratops Spin and the Dinosaur Ride.

We all took turns riding Expedition Everest before we headed to lunch. Please click on the picture to see larger!! Summer Laney is in the pink and it is the funniest thing I have ever seen:)

After lunch we watched the Lion King and Finding Nemo.

The day was very hot and long so we left a little early and headed to the Wilderness Lodge to eat dinner at Whispering Canyons. This restaurant was so funny. When Stacy asked for more napkins and straws the waiter threw them over the wall to her, when I asked for a water I got the biggest glass you ever saw, and when Jamie asked for ketchup they brought us every bottle in the place. Later Summer Laney asked for butter for her potato and they brought her a bowl and the whole bucket of butter and they scooped it out like ice cream for her. We returned to our hotel around 10pm, unpacked and fell into bed.

Can't wait to see the rest of your pictures!! I can't believe you didn't get there until 1:30!!! I bet the kids were all out of sorts - and getting back up at 6! Wow :) But I'm sure arriving at Disney later made up for the lack of sleep! I'm glad you had a good time but very glad to have you back!! Sptbg wasn't quite as exciting with you guys gone. ;)

I love that pic of SL I think y'all should have it blown up and give to her for a Christmas gift... I think Cory expression is funny too... With that water glass I am sure you saw every bathroom after that. Looks like y'all had a great time.

Do you really call that a glass of water??? A jar of water, no??
