So, it’s 4.50am and I am wide awake. It’s my own fault, I went to bed too early after flying to Disney World and going to bed at 9pm! The thing is I was sooooo tired, as were the Man and Boy.
We had a good flight “yesterday” and landed 10 minutes early. We got through passport control really quickly – we no longer have to fill in immigration forms and some visitors to the US can now go through an automated channel and I think that has made it quicker. We then got our bag, went through security and made our way to Disney’s Magical Express for our bus to the resort.
When we got to the resort, the Man had a chat with a fellow bus driver, until I reminded them both that the driver had a job to do and really needed to get out of the, now, heavy rain.
We checked in and after the Man asked what the view was from our room and me saying “the car park” (I had booked a standard view room) the cast member had a look on her computer and upgraded us to a “part Savannah view”! She already knew that we were here to celebrate our 25th anniversary.
After we had unpacked, we had planned to go and get the first bus out of the resort to whichever park it was going to. Unfortunately, it was chucking with rain and I really didn’t want to get soaked to the skin while wearing jeans. So, we decided to stay at the resort and get something to eat and drink before going back to the room. Now, this is where it all came unstuck. We had our showers and got ready for bed so I could put a wash load on, at 7-ish. I waited until the wash had finished and put it in the dryer at 8pm. The Boy had left a tissue in his jeans pocket! So, after vacuuming up the tissue which I shook off the wet clothes, I couldn’t stay awake any longer so went to bed. Yes we have a washing machine, dryer and vacuum cleaner in our room. Well, it’s what Disney call a 1 bedroom villa so we have a kitchen too.
You may have noticed that I put yesterday in quotation marks earlier. That is because although I am writing this in real time, in the hope that I don’t forget anything (and to fill time), I’m not planning on posting this until after we get home.
