Dis*ney Happenings

Here we are at Dis*ney's Old Key West. It is my favorite place to stay when we are bunking at Dis*ney World. It is one of the older resorts built here which was before they started cramming each resort into as small a space as possible. This unit is big and airy with three bedrooms, four bathrooms, kitchen, dining area, living room area and a nice balcony overlooking the golf course. You get the most for your money here and when I get home I will post some pictures and you will see what I mean. Now you are not within walking distance of ant of the parks, you have to take the bus, but it's close to Downtown Disney where all the shops are which is a major draw for me.......ahem.......

This morning we got up to pouring rain but by 10 o'clock it had stopped and although not sunny was pleasant and not too hot. It had been in the 90's so we liked this weather much better. We went to MGM Studio and hit the high spots, had lunch and then came back to the condo so the kids could rest......I did manage to catch a few winks myself.........Some of our crowd went to the pool and then we all met here and headed out to dinner. DIL's family is here with us only 10 minutes away at their time share.

The trip down was a bit long as we left our airport at 8 0'clock then on to Philly for a three hour layover. They finally loaded us on and we taxied out when the pilot came on and said we had to go back to the gate as the luggage was loaded unevenly and had to be fixed! Even the pilot was miffed and said so which surprised me. It took some time to get the luggage straightened out so we were an hour or so late leaving Philly. To say that some people were grumpy would be an understatement. I had my Ipod on so dozed contentedly amidst the crying babies and complaining adults. I purchased some new headphones in the Philly airport that filters out background noise that was well worth the price! These things are amazing, wish I'd had them before.

Dis*ney is great. It's clean, wholesome, entertaining and there is always something new here to see and do. AND I LOVE this resort. I think I said that before didn't I? The landscaping is lush and tropical as it's been here for almost 20 years. There are bird of paradise plants right outside our door.

I called the stable tonight to check on my boys. The owner wasn't home so I will try again later. I continually look out towards the barn and pasture when I am home and even after they left I kept doing so out of habit. Sniff, sniff....

Tomorrow night we are going to the Dixie Stampede. We love that show, HELLO, there are horses there!!

Poor T. She talked about The Tower Of Terror ALL the way down. Couldn't wait to get on that ride. It's not for the faint at heart as it goes up 13 stories and drops like a rock! I gave it up years ago as I don't like heights and free falling in the dark. Anywho, she got on the ride and did okay until the total darkness and then decided it wasn't so much fun after all..........guess that's the end of that.....Her highlight of the day was pulling a baby tooth that was hanging by a thread. Her other grandfather Bampy told her that the tooth fairy leaves $50.00 here at D W! Yikes!

I don't know what happened to the rest of this, guess Blogger ate it as it's not here this morning as I came on to edit a couple of things. I forgot to put the * in Dis*ney and didn't want to get Googled for everyone wanting information! Anyway the crowd has left for the Mag*ic Kindom so now Grampy and I will catch up after I dry my hair. It's not raining so far! Yippee!
