We arrived in Orlando at 4:15 pm made our way through the airport to the Disney Magical Express Welcome Center and were soon on our bus heading to the All Star Movies Resort. The weather on the trip to the resort was repeated throughout the week.
Sometime between 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm each day but the last there was a 30 - 40 minute downpour. Everytime we lucked out and were either on the bus or in a building when it hit. Here is another standard for the trip, Tiff and Craig with their iphones. This helped them pass the time in line or on the bus.
We got to the resort, checked in, and dropped our stuff off at our rooms. Fun Mickey towels on the bed welcomed us.
By now the rain had stopped and we were all hungry so it was time to hop a bus and head to Downtown Disney for some dinner and shopping.
There were so many fun stores, we spent some time at the Lego store looking at all the great displays.
Prince Philip and Maleficent
They even had a life sized Nessie in the lake.
We ate at Paradiso 37, the food was very good. The service was slow as they were busy, but we enjoyed the ambience.
Picture taking antics
Watching the Hot Air Balloon ride was interesting, though no one was anxious to go on it as we could see how much the wind was blowing it about. It went up on a tether and stayed aloft a bit then came down.
After dinner we wandered around seeing more shops and then headed to the bus stop to catch a ride back to the resort for some sleep. I will tell you about the rest of the trip in sperts as there was so much to see and I took quite a lot of photos. When I was uploading them to my iphotos there were 1087, don't worry I won't post them all here. LOL
Thanks for stopping by ~
See you soon,
