Once we left Tampa, we only had a short drive to get to Disney World. As you'd expect, the excitement ramped up the closer we got and the more Disney signs we saw, until we finally hit the main entrance
At check-in, we discovered rooms were ready and waiting, so we could get in immediately. We also found out we could switch to a Nemo room after all, so we were excited about that. Aside from the decorations, the main difference about the Nemo area is that it's really close to the main building, where the restaurant and gift shops are, close to the bus stops and close to the drink machines.
Some how, through out the entire planning process, we missed the fact that this room would have TWO bathrooms. Yes, two. Two bathrooms in a hotel room is a major luxury. We can share for a week, but two bathrooms makes morning getting ready and evening showers go SO much faster. We were thrilled with this discovery.
Once we were all checked in and unloaded the car, we picked up our refillable mugs. We were there for free dining and as part of the dining plan, we each got a refillable mug that could be used for never ending coke/powerade at the resort. Then, we ate a quick lunch at our resort before heading out to visit Epcot.
This is where Sierra realized that as an "adult" (as far as Disney tickets go), she was going to get adult meals. And being on the dining plan, the meal was paid for, regardless of the cost. This meant she could order herself a big ol' steak at this dinner. She wasn't so sure she could be trusted with the knife they brought her
Thankfully, he was feeling better when we arrived, so we decided to venture out a bit and check out the sights around the hotel.
And around the corner, we explored the Cars section:
the next morning, so we decided to hit the hay and get some sleep!
