Disney recap -- Saturday, Day 1:

We took an extremely early flight to FL the Sat morning after Halloween. G had taken the girls trick-or-treating the night before, while I finished packing, and we got up and left the house at 5:45am for the airport. When we got to the parking garage, J was very excited to ride the shuttle bus to the terminal. She doesn't get to ride the bus yet, although she goes along to the bus stop to put M on, so riding the bus was super fun. Once at the airport we checked our luggage and headed through security. Security with young kids and tie shoes is kind-of a pain, but it was early and the lines weren't too bad so we didn't really have big issues.

This was the girls first flight so that was super exciting. M was a wonderful big sis and let J sit by the window. Once we got to the hotel we checked in and ate lunch. J managed to spill pizza sauce all over her cloths. Our luggage hadn't arrived yet, so we went to the gift shop for a Mickey T and made a quick switch before heading off to Epcot for the afternoon and evening.

The first thing we did at the park, after getting a stroller, was head to the character spot to see Mickey and the gang. Then we rode some rides before dinner with Mickey and friends at the Garden Grill. Dinner was fun. The restaurant revolved around the top of the "Living with the Land" ride, which was a little unexpected. While we sat and ate Farmer Mickey, Pluto, Chip and Dale came by the table to greet us. The girls also got to decorate their own cupcakes for dessert. It was a fun way to start our trip.

Side notes:
* I didn't think the girls would be as excited by Chip and Dale (I didn't think they would know who they were) but they were thrilled.
* On the way out of the park, there is a spot where there are fiber-optic lights in the concrete. M told me that Tinkerbell made the ground light up -- soo cute!
