Is your room ready?

The one they originally assigned (based on my TP Room Request) wasn’t ready, but they found us another one.

Unloading the car and SHOWERING!!! Then lunch at the food court before heading to MK.

Ds LOVED Monster’s Inc Laugh Floor. I’m sure we’ll be doing that a few more times this week.

He didn’t remember how much he enjoyed Mickey’s Philharmagic as a little person…and apparently still enjoys it at 12yo.

We may call it a night after the Jungle Cruise. I don’t want to burn child #2 out on the first day. :wink:

All in all a good day.

Waiting up for dd to arrive on DME.

So far Pop seems great. This is my first time staying here. The bus to and from MK today was fine, the room has all kinds of places to put stuff (and we have too much stuff), and the CM’s I’ve interacted with so far were really nice.

We had a few encounters with the 15s. There seems to be two groups staying here… either in the 50s section or the decided to meet here. One was doing a unison jump into the pool and the other met for hours at the feet of Tramp…and had their own sound system/microphone. It seemed like they were taking turns talking about something.

Ds had a good day too. He isn’t a thrill ride kid and would honestly prefer to stay home. We did the slower stuff today on purpose and I think it sets the tone for the week for him.

Tomorrow morning is a slow morning letting dd sleep in after her late arrival. Maybe some pool time in the morning before we hit EPCOT in the afternoon, followed by an evening at AK.


Dinner looks yummy!! Sounds like a good day over all. Glad your trip has started on a positive note!!
