Day 327, The Drive to Disney World

We did 6 days of school this week – hard labor each day – so that we could have the next week off and play at Disney World! The drive from the beach to the Orlando area wasn’t too crazy, and we just kept getting more excited as the miles flew by.


The Happiest Place on Earth – here we come!

The check in at the Fort Wilderness Campground was easy because we stayed in the rig and talked to a lady at an outdoor booth. Leave it to Disney to make it easy from the start. They have such amazing customer service standards.

Our campsite was nice – mostly paved and Dan easily backed in. We quickly got everything hooked up and set up and hopped on our bikes to go explore. It was 75, sunny, and low humidity. We headed to the Settlement area first, and tried to figure out where to take the boat in the morning to the Magic Kingdom across the lake.   There was a tiny sign way out on the dock that we had to stand nearby to read, and it wouldn’t be the last time I was wishing for bigger signs at Disney World!

We went to the big swimming pool next, but it was packed full and there were tons of kids in diapers, so we kept riding to the other smaller pool in the woods. It was perfect! Long enough to lap swim, a hot tub, and not too crowded. We rode back to the rig and got our suits on and then rode back and swam for awhile. We were ready to celebrate Eliza’s birthday week!
