First a non-solicited shout out to our Disney trip planner, Jodi Linton, from Pixie Vacations. If you are planning a trip to Disney... I highly recommend hooking up with Pixie or one of the other official Disney vacation planners. They know their Disney, and can help with all the details. I know it really helped us, and made our vacation easy to plan, gave us "inside tips," and helped us with all the reservations and such.
Now... back to the trip!
We arrived a week ago Thursday, flying into Orlando. It was the second time either kid had flown, but the first time my son remembers flying (the first time he was a baby). He took the window seat, and loved the flight.
We stayed on the Disney property at Port Orleans Riverside (a "moderate resort" for those who know Disney), and ate on the Disney Dining Plan (I highly recommend both!). We already started our "Disney experience" at the airport, when the Disney Magical Express picked up our luggage from the plane, and drove us to the resort. After arriving at Port Orleans, our room wasn't quite ready (we arrived around lunchtime), so we grabbed lunch at the "Quick Service" (AKA fast food) restaurant at the resort, then checked out the resort.

Then, we played some games at the arcade, and my daughter got a hair wrap (isn't that a requirement for a warm weather vacation?).
