Checked out of the crappy Ramada as soon as possible and caught a taxi to the RV pickup.
The RV is only months old and has all the bells and whistles we could want, it's a big rig though and only just fits on the road, I keep getting told i am too close to the left - most likely has something to do with driving on the other side of the road. Anyway we got the RV and decided that it was just too rushed now to get to the Kennedy Centre so we will do that on day 7.
Only took 45 minutes to get to Disney World Fort Wilderness, drove up and our RV was pretty much the smallest, there were some huge RV's with cars being towed behind, i wouldn't like to be driving them
Got checked in and all went nicely - first time there were no hiccups. We are staying in an area of the park called "Jack Rabbit Run", getting the RV hooked up was interesting, there is so much to consider, but we got there.
The kids had some fun at the pool play area before we decided to head over to Magic Kingdom for the evening. It bought back so many memories and was such an awesome moment when we arrived at the gates by boat. Yep that right, the place we are staying is a Disney Resort and as such they have direct access to the parks, to get to the Magic Kingdom you need to catch a boat and it was so awesome seeing the kids faces light up when we arrived at the entrance.
Low and behold it turned out that the reception did make a booboo and gave us someone else's entry card to Disneyworld, so off to customer relations to sort it out, oh well nothing is meant to be that easy anyway is it?
We got inside after a short while and headed straight for Cinderella's castle, Lilia was in her element and had to have a Cinderella costume, so she did, she spent some of her money and bought the dress and gloves to match but unfortunately the shoes were not in her size. Jack got a Mickey mouse shirt also.
We tried to watch the magical parade but the crowds were just overwhelming and it wasn't really possible, to top it off I got separated from Wendy and the kids and had to wait until after the parade to try to find them, it was 30 minutes of anxiousness. After the parade we finally found each other and headed over to some more shops, upon exiting the last shop they announced the fireworks at the castle were going to start, so we enjoyed them and headed back home on the boat.
The best wildlife spotting was when Jack spotted what we think is an Amridillo - in fact it has since been confirmed, pretty cool. You can see the pictures i got, as well there are heaps of little squirrels around which are just lovely to look at.
Well tomorrow we are off to Epcot at 7am as we have a couple of hours to get into the park before it opens, this is a benefit of staying at a Disney resort, called early hours, they also have them at night up until 3am sometimes - not that we would stay out that late.
Tonight i was finally able to call home - got to speak to Mum and Ross just briefly but it was nice to touch base.
Over and Out.
