Going With The Flow - Day One - 21st July 2009

Morning

I have woken up early this morning (5.30 am) and not too bothered because I am excited about the day to come. The beds are really comfortable at the RPR so I had a good nightś sleep.

Supposed to be 88 today with 20 per cent chance of rain, dry air over us at the moment but I think a tropical wave is coming on Wednesday, well it can just wave and go as far as I am concerned.

Plans for today, I don't have any , please don't disown me. We will be in a park of some description, I need to dig out the parks to avoid list I have with me. As I have just mentioned in my 20th July report we are doing a first and going to the Virgin Welcome meeting, primarily to enquire about the free parking I am sure I read somewhere. Parking charges are $15 a day so if we can save that cost it will be handy. It is only at the Hard Rock Cafe and is only about 5 minutes are so away at 8 am. I think Ian and Craig fancied the free breakfast and meal. First time I have seen the breakfast mentioned most be struggling with selling tickets, it is only supposed to be 10 minutes. I will just get up and go if it runs any longer.

Security had rang us yesterday, I had saw our phone was flashing when we got back into the room but thought it was probably the Virgin Rep. Anyway they said they will only work on the safe if we are in the room and to give them a ring. They are coming up now. Some idiot had left the safe open with the bolt out so we couldn't put a new code in. We have used the lads' safe for the valuables but need 2.

Just seen a Subway advert a foot long for 5 dollars, this is about 3 pounds, we are charged this amount for a 6 inch one.

Wow what a great first day!

I love your description of the families reaction to your lime green mickey head with name! I have secretly made one ready for my trip & I know that I will get the exact same reaction from my hubby. I've even hatched a plan as he always carries the rucksack & I dip in & out of it for whatever we need whilst it's on his back so I will sneak it on & off once we are in the parks.

Did you buy the Lime Green Mickey ears? I agree all dissers should wear them, it's should be law. You could even get your screen name sewn on it.

I am so going to miss all the rides at IOA in September, I am regretting our decision to skip it this trip, (first time ever ) our faves are Spiderman, hulk & Duelling Dragons.

Where was the shop that sold the Chamilia charms? In Epcot??? Did they stock many? Details Bev! I need details.

Glad you mentioned the Magicool - I have just bought some for our trip, they do a version which is supposed to help with prickly heat too. I always suffer with that so I hope it works.

Looking forward to reading Wednesdays adventures.

Thanks guys your comments made me and Ian

Claire, the charms were in the big shop in Epcot in a display cabinet, they had a lot of them but didn't notice the one with the crystal Mickey ears on which I was after. May get the script Mickey one like you have.

I am pleased a lot of you liked the moose ear photo. Loved your plans to get the lgmh on your bag Claire. I didn't see anyone else with one. I didn't buy the lgmh hat, I was tempted, but I think I would have spent the rest of the holidays by myself.

Shame they didn't have the charm you were after. I think they sell them in the jewellers on Main Street so you could look in there for it.

I would be abandoned too, especially if I have Pinky166 sewn on it!
