My alarm went off at 3:00am. It didn’t take us long to get our stuff together, and we were checking out by 3:30.
Checking out mainly consisted of us turning in our key because their systems were still down from the blackout. We had paid for our room in advance, so it wasn’t a problem for us.
We only needed to drive 6 hours today. I drove first and by the time the sun came up, it was already time to switch.
For some reason Carl (our gps...we named him) took us to Disney some weird back way. We did finally get there, but I was a little upset that I didn’t get to see the big sign welcoming us to Disney World. It wasn’t a good start to the day, but then as we started getting closer to our resort, I saw this:
That helped my mood a little bit. Who cares about not seeing a sign? I was at Disney World and that was all that mattered.
We found our resort. We stayed at Port Orleans French Quarter.
We went inside to check-in. I had done the online check-in before we left home, so our packet of paperwork was already put together. We got pins that said we were celebrating our anniversary and we got our tickets/room key.
Our room wasn’t ready, but they would text us the room number when it was. The guy did tell us we would be in building 5, so we went ahead and found a parking spot near that building. We made sure that we put anything valuable in the trunk, I grabbed my bag, and we headed to the bus stop. Our first park of the day would be Epcot.
