We started out our trip on Saturday, Dec. 27 to get down to Orlando the day before the cruise. I just wanted to make sure that there weren't any problems getting out of DC and that all of our luggage got there okay.
We picked up our luggage and rental car and our spoiled children were sad that we weren't getting a limo.
We had originally planned to stay at a Residence Inn in Cape Canaveral but I couldn't be that near Disney World and not stay on Disney property. So we stayed just one night at the Beach Club. The kids had a ball swimming in Stormalong Bay and, after we settled them in with resort TV, Dave and I went over to the Big River Grille to get a drink and some dinner. I was really happy just being on Disney property!
