    22.09.08-06.10.08 Here we goooo...

    Well we had an early start to a long day, leaving at 4am from Aberdeen to London Gatwick, and then from Gatwick to Orlando, finally arriveing at around 4 o'clock Orlando time so 9pm our time!


    We arrived and caught the Magical Express to our hotel,



    Where we were welcomed with a red carpet (which of course we should have been ;-) )



    We were stying at All Star Music and here's some pictures of our simple room, that we found more than adequate.









    Lovely. It was off to get something to eat then early to bed for an early start the next day - at Magic Kingdom!!







    After watching the openign which always gets me excited, we headed in for our first glimpse of the castle in 2008 ...



    MAGNIFICENT!





    It has be done ...



    I think this was made just for him...



    Then off to Peter Pan's flight - which i adore!



    Then Haunted Mansion and Splash Mountain ...





    On leaving splash mountain we met Goofy, Kevin's favourite!



    then a quick ride on the railroad



    A tour of Mickey's,



    What do you get if you cross Mickey's Toon Town with a Fair, why Mickey's Toon Town Fair of course!!



    Then it was off to Tomorrowland for a ride on TTA, something else I love!





    Then Adventureland ...



    for a world famous ...



    Then It rained ...



    Kevin came over all Mexican, there must of been somehting in that Dole whip float...



    We then headed over to the Jungle cruise and then took a quick turn on the Magic Carpets of Agrabah!



    Then off on a sail on the rivers of America...



    It's a small world after all, it's a small world after all ...



    Onwards to the Carousel...



    HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP!!! HE'S AFTER ME!!!!!!!!!



    Then we went and got a spot for the parade, where there was a gentleman called Tony (I think) who got everyone going, was playing with kids, singing to people who were celebrating birthdays, dancing with little princesses, had a Disney Pop Quiz... he really was great, hope I find him again another year!






    See the guy with the Red waistcoat - that's Tony!!




    Poor grumpy...



    We had dinner at Olivia's cafe and it was absolutely beautiful, I would definately recommend it. Anyway thats the end of Day one, DAy two coming soon...

    Day 2 could only begin with a visit to EPCOT.



    And off to Spaceship Earth, I love this ride, and this was the first time I'd riden since it was refurbished when we visited in 2007 it was closed he whole time! And i must say I really love the new version, everything just seems a lot more crisp (? Is that the right word) and brighter. And i loved the bit at the end about my future!











    off to club cool and even though we now we dont particuarly like any of htem we still taste each of them and we still feel sick after Beverley! I'm a glutton for punishment!



    Then lwe went to Living with the Land, another ride I thought I would not like but do! I love the Earning my Ears!



    Then DISASTER STRUCK! lol, kevin got locked in the Hummer and had to get somebody to let him out! he was very embarrassed, especially as I stood in hysterics pointing at him!







    Then we headed over to Polynesian where we had reservations at Kona Kafe, but first a visit to the beach!







    Kona Kafe, was delicious! And I will definately be returning on outr next visit! Just look at my Kona Kone, and Kevins Banana Creme Brulee! YUM!





    Day Three SOON!
