We Love Walt Disney World!

Here we are at Epcot this afternoon! We have already done SO much in two days! Luke liked flying and everything went so smoothly changing planes in Atlanta. He even got to sit in the cockpit with the pilot and they let us take pictures (I'm sure I will be posting those later! Ha!).

The weather here is great. It's warm, but so nice and breezy in the shade. The lines aren't nearly as bad as what we had feared. We walked right up to the front for most of the ones today and yesterday, and utilized FAST PASS for the really popular ones that had lines.

We are getting acclimated to the whole Disney way of life. It's crazy how big everything is and how they have everything down to a science. The rides have been incredible (Sunshine, you would be so proud of me. We rode Soarin' today and I LOVED It! No anxiety attacks at all).

Luke is LOVING the characters! We bought him an autograph book and so far he's gotten seven autographs. This kinda surprised us...that he would be so into it.

Tonight we ate at Whispering Canyon restaurant in the Wilderness Lodge resort. That place was beautiful! We took a boat ride over to the resort-that was Luke's first boat ride ever! Isn't that strange?!? Ha!

Well, gotta run! We have an early morning. Tomorrow we are going to Animal Kingdom! Very excited about that!

I just love doing things that aren't on my regularly scheduled day! Staying in hotels, swimming, boat rides, etc. What is your favorite thing about traveling?

Awesome!! I'm glad you rode it...and enjoyed it!! : ) I'm glad you hear you guys are having a great time. I told Luke I could fit in a suitcase so I could go with you guys, but I guess he didn't believe me ; )
What do I love about traveling? I love being able to just do "whatever." Keith and I do like to have things planned out, but it's very nice when we can just 'fly by the seat of our pants' and do whatever sounds like fun at the time.
We'll miss seeing you at church, but look forward to hearing all about your trip!

Glad you'll are having lots of fun. I thought about you yesterday b/c I heard the "paper" sale started (thur-sat). It has nothing on Disney World though. Have fun. Kelly

I saw this from Google today and thought of you all. See Disney World in 3D via Google Earth.
