For our first wedding anniversary, sunnygirl and I decided to take a trip to Walt Disney World. We thought about it for our honeymoon, but we knew we needed to go to WDW with the Jr. Miss.
From there, we invited our familes, my mom, stepdad and sister and her mom and stepdad. It also turned into an even larger group event as several of our MC friends decided to take family vacations all during that same week.
We left Orange County, June 20th and flew to Houston and then to Orlando. It was my first trip back to WDW since 2000, SG's first trip in 20 years and the first ever for the Jr. Miss.
After hopping aboard Disney's Magical Express we made the trip down the freeway and arrived at our home for the next week, the Boardwalk Inn.
We had a concierge suite, but more than that, we had a garden suite.

We ended up meeting up with a small group that first night, we had a late meal at the ESPN Club and then met up with some MCers for a latenight drink at the hotel bar.
The next morning was the day of our anniversary, we headed first to Epcot and did almost all of Future World, including Mission: Space twice before heading back to our hotel in the late afternoon. Sunnygirl and I had dinner reservations at the California Grill for our anniversary. We had a great meal and then headed out to the balcony to watch the fireworks from atop the Contemporary. We then headed to the Magic Kingdom to meet up with my sister and a few MCers and hit a few rides. Heading back to our room, we found Disney had left us a anniversary present.
as well as some chocolates and it was very nice.
