Our Trip to Disney - Day 1

Last Thursday, Andrew and I headed down to Orlando, FL to spend the weekend at Disney World with his family. His parents decided to take the whole family down for an early Christmas celebration. I have never been to Disney at Christmas time, so I was really looking forward to seeing everything decorated for Christmas. We left at about 9:30 am and drove straight through to Orlando, only stopping once for lunch. We arrived at our Resort at 5:30 pm. We made great time! We checked into Saratoga Springs Resort and then went straight to our room. After unloading the car, we got on a bus and went to Downtown Disney to buy our Annual Passes. We will be going back to Disney next summer, so it is a better deal to buy an annual pass rather then buy tickets for each day. We looked around at some shops and then it was time for dinner. We decided we would have dinner at Ohana's at the Polynesian Resort. The restaurant has a great view of the Castle, and at 9:30 we had great seats to see the fireworks. It was a very long day, so after dinner we went back to our room and went to bed.
Up Next - Day 2 - Magic Kingdom and the rest of the family arrives.
