Hit the road at 9:30 a.m. Cloudy and foggy. Heavy downpour when we hit Interstate 75 south. Very slow going, could hardly see. It was still quite warm though, 75 degrees. Beautiful scenery, lots of green trees, and lots of Spanish Moss. Went through Gainesville and Ocala. When we got to Lakeland, the sun was out and we were starving. Spotted a …
... was amazing! We saw a number of films and shows, including Walt Disney's dream (his story and history was revealing and fascinating) and the live show Beauty and The Beast was classic, costumes, music and all. The great movie ride took us back through some of the classics while 3D Muppet Vision show was a hoot! All the grandkids signed up for the Jedi Training experience which was presented on a small outdoor stage. Here they strutted their Jedi stuff ...
... to the condo late afternoon in order to get an earlier bedtime.
Rebekah and Joey were the stars of the day. Rebekah wanted to do the Animation Academy (essentially an animation class where you learn how to draw a Disney character) twice, and both times she was given the animator's drawing! We drew Pluto and Tigger. As for Joey, he had been looking forward to the Star Tours ride for months. We all went on it (even me, although I know virtual rides make me queasy), and ...
OK, so those of you who claim to be cultured or may have worked in the service industry understand the term "soft open". For those of you who don't, well, it is a way of testing the waters or 'easing into' things. If you need more explanation than that, you need to find a new blog to read cause like, damn.
So, for our Soft Open into our trip Rae and I decided we would get a last taste of Home, NOLa style. Our first taste was ...
... and ange, who didn't like it much I don't think.... Matty reckons he was bored. The park photo was interesting, with ange and bens heads down, Matty looking bored and john and I laughing. End of the day was approaching, but ange wanted to go to the petting farm, so we caught s train to Rafikis planet watch, which is the conservation and behind the scenes part of the park.

Orlando is a tough town to stay in. It books up fast and it's expensive because of the mouse. Disney doesn't interest me. I was just there to see Harry Potter's house. We rented a car in Orlando and drove to our hotel which ended up being 45 minutes away in Winter Haven. That was kind of a bummer and we got a little bit lost. But once we found it, we were happy. They gave us an insanely large room with all the amenities. The woman at the front desk was very helpful and kind. And, in the morning, the buffet line of eggs, bacon and flap jacks was plentiful. Holiday Inn Winter Haven is a pain in the ass is you're heading to the theme parks but it's a nice little place at a decent price.
