Disney, the adventure begins! (days 1 and 2)

Ok, now that the Spousal Equivalent (the photographer in the family) has his pictures done.. I can start with my recap!

Let me be honest.  Disney starts your vacation at the airport!
The magic Bands were put on while we were still in the air!  Why???

So we could get on the Magic Express!!

A scan of the band and we were ready to go!

The bus brought us right to the resort!  The bags were actually waiting in our room when we checked in!

Disney was rather efficient with getting everyone to the right bus and off to their resorts!  We took advantage of checking our luggage all the way to the room... which was rather awesome!

Soon, we were on our way, and saw this sight..
We are here!  I totally cried!!
Thanks to a coworker, we got to stay at a Disney Vacation Club resort!  We were at Old Key West!
The Hospitality House, where we got the bus

Our room was on the second floor

the gift shop
After getting to the resort and having them take our carryons, it was time to hit the Run Disney expo!

The Expo... I've never seen that many people in one place ever!  Holy crap!!  But I got my bib and my shirt.  I drooled over the Dooney bags.  We ended up going to bed early!  (Well the SE went to Disney Quest...)

Day 2 We started at the Kona Cafe, so I could try Tonga Toast.  then SE and I were off to Epcot!
the Lobby of the Polynesian Resort

We took the Monorail from the resort to Epcot!

We got to Epcot, and went right to meet Mulan!

We talked about the race I was going to run

The SE and she talked about our kitten, Mulan!

Then to Morocco for Lunch!

After I got some food in me, we hit some rides!
Universe of Energy
Test Track.  I'm a roller coaster weenie, but I enjoyed this!
And finally, dinner (and a drink) in Mexico!
Mission: Space.  I did the Orange side.  It's intense, they weren't kidding!

Next up:  Hollywood Studios, The race, Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom!
