I’m home from my vacation now, wishing I’d taken another day or two off work to recuperate. It was a long and wonderful vacation, but I’m sore and exhausted, and in dire need of a deep tissue massage. On my flight home I was thinking back over my vacation and realized that I learned some things on my trip, not just about myself but about others as well. Looking back now, having learned these things makes me even more glad I took the time and expense to make the trip to Florida.

After taking a not-long-enough nap, I got back up and got ready once more to head out for the afternoon/evening. We got to Magic Kingdom just after 6 o’clock and got through the ticket lines and provided a special wristband that would allow us to remain the park after the 7 o’clock closing time. We then roamed around a little while to kill time until the park emptied of general admissions guests, and then the real fun of the evening began.

Last year when Dan and I went to Animal Kingdom we took it slow and slept in a little, but this year we all decided to go early because Josh wanted to see the park’s opening show. Upon arriving, it didn’t live up to expectations, and I’d wished that I had slept in instead. Luckily the rest of the morning turned out quite nicely.

Woke up extra early this morning for a return trip to EPCOT. This time around it would without Dan or Josh since Dan had to work and Josh would be staying home. Instead, I’d be meeting up with my friend Karen who came in from Tampa just to see me, and she brought a friend with her who just needed to get out and have some fun (a sentiment I easily understood and sympathized with). I was a little worried that it might be awkward, but boy was I wrong.
Started off the day at a slightly slower pace this morning since Hollywood Studios didn’t have anything we were in any particular rush to get to right away. Dan and Josh and I had breakfast at the apartment and then headed into the park to begin a day of rain dodging fun.
