Michael met me in the Orlando airport this morning and we were off to start our week-long vacation celebrating his 30th birthday. We’re staying at the Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort tonight and carousing through Disney World tomorrow. I don’t know if I’ll be able to sleep because I’m so excited.
The Wyndham is gorgeous and enormous. I think there are six hotels, all with their own pools, surrounding a large lake. We checked out all the pools and the water slides before cabbing to Downtown Disney.I may be 25, but Disney’s still got the magic. I know it’s going to be even more magical tomorrow at Disney World. Michael and I browsed through the stores with Disney characters everywhere and I couldn’t help but feel that same sense of wonder I felt when I was young. I loved seeing all the kids around gasp in awe at a lot of the displays. Orlando is warm and humid and smells like vacation. It’s the first time I’ve been to Florida and it seems like it’s thunderstorm season right now because the skies are overcast and pregnant with rain. Very much like Dallas. It’s no big deal though because even if we get rained on, it’s so warm out that we’ll dry quickly.We both got in touch with our inner child today. Looking forward to more of that tomorrow. Only a couple of days before Michael is officially 30.
