Disney 2011 - Getting There

While I miss being so very far from the warmth of the Sunshine State, I have to admit that a 2 1/2 hour plane ride down was a whole lot more enjoyable than an 8-hour road trip. The airplane is still a bit of a novelty to the kids; the car, well, it is not. Needless to say, they were excited to head to the airport last Saturday to board the jet.

We didn't leave until mid-afternoon, but we got there early enough to have a little time to hang out at the airport.

We did not go to Disney straight from the airport. Since we didn't arrive until evening, we decided not to use any of our Disney Vacation Club points for a few hours' sleep. So we used our Marriott points instead and stayed a a Courtyard. Honestly, I didn't care where we stayed; I was just happy to be in tropical paradise again!

Sounds like fun!!

My girls are begging to go on an airplane again. Our last couple of vacations have been places where we could easily drive to in a few hours.

We are due for Disney again soon!

Glad you had such a great time at Disney, what a blessing to go there with your littles, I'll be on back for some more photos!

Wow you've got cute kids! And it sounds like you made good use of your blog hiatus (I read the post below, too). It can be so refreshing and rejuvinating (and creatively inspiring) to take some time off.

Gorgeous flower photos in your Easter post, too -- wow!

I've been to Disney a couple of times (LA)- we go for the kids but honestly I could skip it!

I seem to be taking a break from blogging -I just read your previous post that you sort of did too. :)

I'll get back to it soon. But I thought I'd pop around to my blogger friends and say HI!!

I see my comment disappeared from here too! All my stuff from yesterday... gone! LOL!

My blog remake disappeared so I thought I'd hop around and see if all my comments "took" - they were gone too. If I were paranoid.....

But I forgot what I said yesterday other than I was hopping by to say "hi" because I've been missing in action for a bit.

Sorry I rambled... :)
