Disneyworld: Day One

When we moved away from Ohio, we were talking with our cousins, actually Jason's cousins, about doing a trip to Disney together. They go to Disney all the time so we knew that we wanted to go with a 'professional' for our first trip.
We spent the night in a hotel by the airport on Saturday evening, so we wouldn't have to wake up so early and then we flew out bright and early on Sunday.
Aunt Holly made the kids some cute Disney shirts for the flight there. They were so excited to get to Disney!
We landed at 10:30am and we met up with our cousins and were in the pool by noon. Matt and Heather (Jason's cousins) didn't tell their little boys that we were meeting them so when they saw us they were speechless, literally.
So much fun seeing them together again after being apart for 9 months!
We stayed at the Wilderness Lodge Resort, which is a wooden and rustic resort. It felt like Missouri and it was perfect!
We headed to Disney Springs for dinner. We didn't venture to the parks on our first day, instead we explored the area. My friend, Lacey, from Hershey lives nearby so she met up with us for a little bit that evening.
Our dinner reservations were for the Rainforest Cafe. We've never been to one before so it was the perfect intro dinner to our trip. The kids loved seeing all the animals and the food was so yummy!
We were in bed as soon as we finished dinner--the traveling, plus the excitement for Magic Kingdom, were enough to wear out our crew.
