Fall Disney Trip Day One

No one is really surprised by that title are they?  Yes, we are back from yet another trip to Disney (3rd this year!)  No, we are not made of money lol.  We buy season tickets so for the cost of one trip we can take multiple trips.  Plus we use dh’s hotel points to score free nights.  And these trips are our only vacations…seriously, anyone will tell you we only ever go to Disney World.  :)

We didn’t stay on property this time, but at our favorite non-Disney hotel, the Embassy Suites.  We had a pool-view room.

IMG_3932 The front desk had a cute Mickey ghost decoration.  Yes, Disney celebrates fall/Halloween very early.

IMG_3933 IMG_3937 IMG_3938 The boys almost immediately hit the pool.  The days were nice and sunny and not overwhelmingly hot.  But still hot.  :)

IMG_3949 We weren’t really planning on going to any parks that first day, but after the pool time we all felt pretty refreshed and decided to go to Epcot.

IMG_3950 IMG_3952 IMG_3953 Right when we walked up to Spaceship Earth we were greeted by an RC Mickey, with stickers to share with ds4.

IMG_3961 IMG_3964 Next up was the Living Seas.  The place was practically empty, we just walked right in with no wait.

IMG_3977 IMG_3978 IMG_3990 We spent a good while watching the sea life, including rays and really big fish.  The dolphins were also pretty playful that day, and I snapped this possibly indecent pic of one up close.

IMG_4001 IMG_4002 IMG_4005 We got to sit up front on Living With The Land so I got some pretty good pics.

IMG_4033 IMG_4041 IMG_4049 Ds4 didn’t want to go on Imagination, so we played with the jumping water outside the attraction.

IMG_4082 IMG_4085 Now get this.  We actually parked our car in the MK parking lot, not at Epcot.  Here’s why.  Dh loves the long monorail ride from Ticket and Transportation to Epcot.  So we parked at MK, rode the monorail to Epcot, rode it back, hopped over on the resort monorail and went to the Polynesian.  Why?  Because I am a resort mug freak, and I had to have one lol!

  1. Fun for all! I think the adults enjoy Disneyland as much as the kids do.

  2. My husband grew up in California, so he went to Disneyland all the time. Last summer he told me he wanted to take our kids, but we live in Washington, so it's a lot more expensive now!

  3. Have a wonderful, merry and blessed Christmas!


Thanks for stopping by!
