Whew! I had my first WDW trip June 15th to 23rd. It was a blast and being from So.cal, it was just amazingly huge! Disneyland will probably never be the same for me again.
Well thats not what you care about Here's the report
june 15th/16th: we got to LAX at around 8 PM to catch the 10:30 flight to Atlanta. There we had a layover and got on a flight to Orlando. It was pretty uneventful, except the fact that you can't get any sleep on an airplane. We arrived in Orlando at about 10 AM local time and went downstairs to pick up our luggage and the rental car. We rented from Budget, and they had not gotten any of their cars back from the car wash yet. So we sat around in those nice tables across from the counter for about a 1/2 hour until the car was finally here.
Rental car Ratings (including pickup, cleanliness, and other stuff): 7/10
We hopped in the car and tried to follow mapquest directions to the I-4, which took forever with my mom trying to interpret them. on the way to I-4 we stopped at this waffle house and had breakfast.
After filling our bodies, we finally made our way to the i -4 and eventualy to Disney. There we followed signs to the Port Orleans Riverside, and arrived at about 1 PM.
we dropped the bags at the luggage holding area and went inside, curious to know if we could get our rooms before the 3PM check in. They were ready, so we got adjoining rooms in building 26 (rooms 2647 and 2648)
My mom and grandma volunterred to head over to Walmart down the I-4 (it had opened a couple days before) and me, my sister, and my dad went to Blizzard Beach.

We saved a bunch of money by all splitting one of these, and when we ended up coming back, we used it again. It was 2:30 or 3 when we got there, so summet plummet and slush gusher had a 60 minute wait each (it was saturday, so i didn't expect anything less) We did Teamboat springs, all of the mat slides (i forget the names), the tube ones in the back, i think runoff rapids is whats its called, and the Downhill double dipper, which was my favorite. The park closed at 6, so we stayed until then. After that, we changed clothes and headed over to Downtown Disney. My cousin had came on an afternoon flight so she joined us at DD.

We got to downtown disney hungery, so half the time we searched for food. I could not believe how crowded it was! The little DD in California is so peaceful but this was afull. We finally found Earl of Sandwitch tucked away in the corner. The sandwitches were pretty good though. After that we decided it was too crowded so we took a bus back to the hotel.
Overall Ratings of the day
Blizzard Beach: 9/10
mat slides 7/10
runoff rapids 7.5/10
Teamboat springs 8.5/10
Downhill Double Dipper 10/10
Downtown Disney: 3/10
Earl of sandwitch: 8/10
After having only about 4 hours of sleep, i say we did pretty good on day 1.
Coming soon: Day 2 Sunday June 17th (fathers day) at Epcot
