Our first day in the Park!!
SO, we stayed up pretty lat that night.. went to bed around 2a.m. I love McKenzie! She's such a sweet girl! I woke up around 8:30 and was pumped to get in the park. The rest of my party, on the other hand, was a wee bit sluggish. Had to drag Dustin outta bed. I gave him the shake-him-till-you-wake-him treatment AND I stole all of the covers off of his sleepy body. Kenzie was out in the living room part of out little mini-suite with the t.v. on the History chanel. It turns out that she woke up around 4 and couldn't go back to bed. She only got about four o sleep. A good Starbucks got her off to a good start though! Ok, here is my first gripe. There was a Starbucks in the lobby and the women who were working it were aweful! They didn't understand the concept of putting coffe and ice in a blender and blending it. Yeah. Oh, and htey wouldn't let me order a hot chocolate with shot of coffee... they said that it was called a mocha and that was what they'd charge me for! Geesh! What creeps! Anyways, we had to stop at Target to get poor, dear Kenzie some cold medicine and look for a sort of inhaler type thing. No luck.. She did get some dayquil and some homeopathic cold stuff. It was about 11a.m. by that time and we wanted to check into our hotel, The Grand Californian *dawwwwling*. We pulled into the lot (after passing it twice!) and we were greated by these cute, 1920sish costumed guys. I don't have a picture, but they were great! We parked, unloaded and waited at the front desk to be called forward. [The looooong front desk. This was only half way down!] [I love this snail!]
We were called over by a really sweet man (can't remember his name though) and he helped us with our reservation. It turned out that our room didn't have any bars in the shower and I really need those to make sure that I am as safe in possible while in the shower. Try balancing on one leg in the shower with your eyes closed... it's a little hard! HA!
Anyways, after waiting for about ten minutes while the nice man talked to his boss about switching us to a handicapped accessable room, we were informed that our new room wasn't ready yet. He gave us the keys to our room (take home souvineers after we checked out!) and told us that someone would call us before 3p.m. with our info.
Then, we were off *jet noise* to our first ever MiceChat Noon Meet!
We approached the front gates and there really wasn't too much of a wait! Yea! I was rushing, trying to get my dear husband to push me super fast so that we wouldn't be late! We rushed down Main Street *silent tear* and arrived at the hub to see.... no one! We were the first ones there, so we plopped down on a bench and waited. After a few minutes we saw..... Fishey! Mr Fishbulb himself! I actually have a picture of him and it's at a really bad angle and it's not a very good picture, so I'll keep it to myself! Love you Mr. Fishy!
I then met (not in the right order) MaxandBellesMom, DustySage, GeminiCricket, FRECKY(!), JustJohn, DarkBeer (I think!!), RedRoseAngel, AKFanDisney, BFJen, Melonballer and others whose names are not popping into my head at this moment!
