I decided to take the Hubs to Disney for his birthday (I know...really generous of me since it didn't cost us anything...it's the thought that counts, not the price tag). It was a last minute idea and when I say last minute I mean we booked our hotel on Tuesday. I don't know if I've shared this with ya'll yet but I don't do spontaneous. It stresses me out. It's just not in my personality. So this was a big deal for me. We said goodnight to the kids, packed our stuff, grabbed a few hours sleep, and headed out bright and early Saturday morning for a weekend of magic.
We got to Magic Kingdom just after it opened and took advantage of the lack of children by our sides and rode the "grown up" rides. We did all our favorites, enjoyed "us" time (ie holding hands not strollers), and busted through everything by 1030. That should tell you how not crowded it was. We hopped on the monorail over to Epcot, walked around, grabbed some lunch and headed to the hotel around 2 to check in, unpack, and relax. Magic Kingdom was open til 1am so we decided to relax and rest up so we could last til closing time. We opted for the outlet mall (aka the new Vera Bradley outlet...heaven in a shop. I really want to move in there) and dinner then headed back to Magic Kingdom. Rode the rides again, caught the fireworks (no one does a fireworks display like Disney), and called it a night around 11. There was no way we were making it to closing time. All in all, great first day.
Cue the millions of pictures of the Hubs and me (sorry....we pretty much only take self pictures)
