Day 1: The day in which we travel to the house of mouse

We left Texas on June 28th, 2012 with my Nephew (groomsman) in tow. We arrived at the airport at about 1:15pm. Our flight was at 3:45pm but my mom had to go get her hair cut for the wedding so we were at her mercy on when we could get there. It was actually ok with a later flight because it gave us time to get everything packed and ready to go.

The first thing that happened that is of HUGE significance is the card that I got in the mail. My mom gave me a wedding card from Ashley Eckstein. She is a voice talent on the Star Wars Clone Wars cartoon that airs on cartoon network. I have met her several times and she has always been very supportive of the wedding. She also owns a company called Her Universe which creates and sells clothing for sci-fi geek girls. Clothing that it is perfect for girls it is comfortable and fits us and reflects the female fan. She has started a huge movement for fangirls everywhere and she sent ME a wedding card. She congratulated us and informed me she is also a Disney Bride. She even thanked me for everything that I do for the fan community. It made me cry and she was so proud that I would wear her star wars jewelry for my wedding. You can bet I wore it proudly for her. Here is an image of the card.



As I said we got to the airport about 1:15 here is a picture of all of us at the airport before we got through security (we are in height order lol!)



As we waited we got some food and I started taking pictures of my vinyls which i meant to take pictures of on the whole trip but that kind of did not happen.... anyway here is stitch




And bride and groom vinyls!


Nathan....smiling awkwardly I love my nephew


Bride


Groom


Together!




Our Plane on Jet Blue departing at 3:45pm

The flight was pretty non eventful we played iPad games and just were very anxious to get to our destination. I however did discover Popcorners. If you have not had these pop corn chips you need to eat them. I want to buy them in bulk from their website!! Thank you Jet Blue for introducing me to pop corners. When we arrived we went straight to Disney's Magical Express and we were on our way to Old Key West the 1st of our 5 DVC resorts for the trip.





When we got there I took pictures of the towel animals that Disney always does and the room. The animals are above and the room is below.









The room is actually very very big and was quite spacious. I really liked the spaciousness of the room and bathroom area.



After getting there the next step was to head to downtown disney to meet up with Greg's family for dinner. One of the awesome things about Old Key West is that they have a launch that takes you directly to downtown disney. This made it very easy. The picture below you all have seen before I just love this guy



We ate at T-Rex cafe and had a really good time. I do like that restaurant mainly because I love all the dinosaurs. I feel like maybe it was a little too loud for a first meeting with all of Greg's family seeing as how I had never met most of them before. It was great to meet everyone and we had a good time.





I love this hot air balloon. Luckily I got a picture of it because after the wedding it disappeared I asked where it had gone and it was taken away for safety inspections.

When we got back to the resort my nephew really wanted to go swimming but by that time it was midnight and we were all pretty exhausted from the travel. When we got to old key west we were trying to figure out the bus schedule and when the inner resort bus would come by. We decided not to wait so we walked which seemed like a mile all the way back to the turtle pond area.



Also if you don't know I like to do photography mostly macro. When we were walking I stopped to take this because I thought it looked cool.



Once we got back to the room we went to sleep because we had to wake up early in the morning. We were going to rope drop hollywood studios with my nephew.

Fantastic start on the PJ!

That letter from Ashley Eckstein is so awesome! I love clone wars! I had no idea she was a Disney bride, that makes it even more fabulous.

Looking forward to reading more!

•Love the card! What a nice keepsake!
•I love flying JetBlue. Haven't tried pop corners yet, must find some!
•OKW looks pretty nice...I'll have to stay there at some point. I would love being close to DTD by boat.

Great start! It looks like a lot of fun. I really enjoyed T-Rex too, because the atmosphere is so cool! But you're probably right that it's not the best for meeting and talking to people for the first time. Also, your pictures look great - you have some really good night shots!

I'm here!! Looks like you had a nice and relaxing first day/travel day! I really like the blue inside the OKW room, they used to be a beige or coral that I remember. I also like the roman shades.

Glad you liked OKW! Did you put in a request for a certain building, then did you get it and were you happy with it? Did you also get ground floor? Isn't the boat so convenient? I'm ready for more!!
