Our first day was mostly travel. The flight was super easy. The kids relaxed. I watched a soccer game. The first picture is in the Orlando Airport. Claire asked to have her picture taken so she could show her friends at school.
We stayed at Port Orleans – The French Quarter. Since we were staying on the Disney property, we rode the Magical Express. They had massive lines set up for all the different routes. And Disney is all about line management. Even still. It was a short wait.
Christmas decorations and themes went up during our stay as we crossed in to December. The kids were suitably impressed with the trees at every turn.
Upon arrival, the primary event was dinner at 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian, another hotel on the Disney property. When we got there, a choir was singing Christmas carols in front of a nearly three story Christmas tree. While we were waiting for our table, the kids were invited to come up and hold some bells to jingle while they sang Jingle Bells.
This segued into a couple of songs. Claire was slightly bewildered, but enjoyed herself nine the less.
