Day 1 of Disney Vacation

We had to get up at 5am to be on the road by 6am to make it to Burlington air port by 7:30am for our flight at 9:10am. Craig, Gillian and I aren't morning people so you can imagine how pleasant this was....we made it through and our flight took off without any issues. Craig and I weren't sure how Gillian would do on the plane but flying Jet Blue is awesome because they have TV. Gillian watched TV until about a half hour before landing.

Craig had predicted that Gillian and I would sleep and he would not and the exact opposite happened.

We landed in sunny was beautiful weather....75 to be exact. The Disney vacation package was a breeze and we found our way to the shuttle to the resort and off we went. Gillian didn't make it through the shuttle ride without a nap.

Before we knew it we were off the bus, checked in and on another bus headed for Magic Kingdom. No rest on vacation for us.

Upon entering the park we were purchased Gillian some mouse ears.

And we went and met the "real" Daisy Duck.

We timed it perfectly and hit the Celebrations Parade. While watching the parade we had lunch of ice cream which we explained to Gillian was only something that happens on vacation.

As soon as the parade was done we headed to Fantasyland but ended up in Tomorrowland. Gillian got to drive a car, we all rode on a spaceship, ride the people mover (felt like I was in the Jetsons), fight aliens with Buzz Lightyear and Gillian now has a complete fear of the character Stitch.

We watched the Wishes light show and fireworks one does it like Disney. It was truly amazing. Best Valentine's Day Ever!!!!
