Yesterday, I hopped in the car at 6:45 AM and exactly two hours later, pulled into Unicorn Parking, Row 28 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World! There, I met with my pal Jillian and we explored the park working on earning badges with the new Wilderness Explorers interactive game – so of course, we had to do the call with Russell! Oh, and yes, we did plan on matching rogas – what can we say, we’re full of #flystyle! (on that note: here’s the update from Oiselle about the team!)
After a morning full of fun, we took the party to Magic Kingdom and by magical circumstance, ran into Morgan and friends and had a great lunch at Be Our Guest restaurant! The park was very crowded, but we got in quite a few fun shows, including Philharmagic, The Hall of Presidents and The Country Bear Jamboree. Ohhhh, and of course, we HAD to stop in the new Main Street Bakery, featuring Starbucks!
J and I split before the fireworks, so after monorail-ing it back to the lot and walking to the car, I was on the road by 10 PM and back at home by midnight. It was pretty darn exciting…and I look forward to more quick trips like that, as I’ll be popping up when I can…because as of TODAY, I’ve had my first post published on the popular Touring Plans Blog!

Other fun news: I got my new laptop in the mail today: the MacBook Air! So far, it is amazing! So much faster than my last computer and holy cow, it’s the first laptop I have ever owned that you can actually work with it on your lap! 😉
Now, it’s time to peel myself off the comfy couch and log a few easy miles. Hubs headed out to tennis for the evening, so I am thinking treadmill + Arrested Development time!
What’s your favorite day trip from where you live?
