Because we were leaving on a non-travel work day, Mandie took the helm and piloted the rig while I read a proposed EPA regulation. I do love having a wife who drives.
We found a spot back in the D section. We like it back there because it's a little more wooded than the other parts of the park. But, it's further away from most of the amenities. It was a pretty decent site.
Once there, I went to work looking for a slow leak in one of my tires. We lose about 10psi every 2-3 weeks. Turns out there was a little bubbling around the valve stem. I tightened it with a couple of 1/8-1/4 turns. The bubbling stopped and the air pressure held. #win
We met up lake side with the Churches one afternoon. The boys played and the girls talked.
Along the idea of "it's always something", my grill finally stopped lighting the whole way around the burner tube and one of the door struts for a hatch broke.
Because TTO is so close to Disney, we spent a very rainy day at Animal Kingdom with the Cropps. Unfortunate for them but fortunate for us, they took the rain with them when they left and the remainder of the day was pretty nice!
We rode Kali River Rapids for the first time and actually ended up riding it 3 times back to back right before the park closed:
The next day, we headed into Magic Kingdom. There were literally more people than I've ever seen at the parks. The line for the Ferry at the Ticket and Transportation Center was crazy; getting through security was nutty; the line for the People Mover almost went back to Space Mountain; and so on. We still had a good time. Until dinner- we had the absolutely worst food I've ever experienced at Disney at Pinocchio's Haus. Downright gross. But, that aside- we had a fun time.
As usual, we hung out later than the Cropps (cough) lightweights (cough). We hit a few more rides and watched a parade.
The food was so bad that we had to make it up with a trip back to Mellow Mushroom. I really do love that place!
Leaving Orlando, we headed northward to Mrytle Beach. On the way, we stopped off at a Harvest Hosts Farm for a night. But, of course- that's a blog for another day.
