Disney Trip '11 {Day 1}

Did you know we love Disney?
Well we do!!
We waited all summer to go there.
It was worth the wait. 
We almost didn't get there.
Thanks, Irene.
But after a hurricane, no power or internet, cancelled flights and major anxiety...
rebooked flights....and finally getting out....we got there.
We were staying at the Grand Floridian.
It exceeded my expectations. (Wasn't sure if we'd love it as much as our favorite, Polynesian). 
Our balcony.
View from the balcony (Hello Poly!)
The rooms were cold and the air was hot so this is what happened until my camera adjusted to the temperature.

On our first night, we had dinner booked with my sister's family at Jiko at Animal Kingdom Lodge.
We arrived a little early so we looked around and saw this.
You can stay in rooms overlooking the Savannah. 
Dinner at Jiko-The Cooking Place-was Fabulous with a capital F.
It was lovely to get back to our room and crash after a long day.

What fun! We live in Florida, and do you know we've only been to Disney World once? I love the giraffe - how cool. And that happens to my camera ALL the time. Very frustrating.

Nothing like a little Disney to bring out the kid in everyone; and it's such a great place for a family to spend time together. Lucky you!!! Glad you finally got there!

We also had a Disney World vacation affected by Irene. Howver we were in WDW and couldn't head home since our flight was cancelled so we had to stay an extra 4 days - at Boardwalk. Terrible, I know.
