Well, I'm finally caught up to the beginning of our trip down to Disneyworld. Phew.
Day 1: Arrival, humidity and Magic Kingdom
After arriving in Orlando we were hit smack in the face with a brick wall of humidity. Coming from Colorado, any amount of water suspended in the air is a bit shocking. We boarded the bus that took us to our resort and we were just a little bit excited.
From the resort we went straight to Magic Kingdom.
Right in front of the castle they were performing a live singing and dancing show and, I'll admit, my little heart melted and I decided that it was indeed the happiest place on earth where all my dreams really could come true.
The whole afternoon was filled with noting the differences between Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom, running through empty lines and watching fireworks.
All day the park had seemed nearly vacant. After the fireworks? That's another story. Check out all these people crowded onto main street! Yikes!
