The day before we left for Florida, it snowed here in Kansas. The morning we left? It was approximately 3 degrees outside! We had an early flight and we left extra early to allow for the not-so-great road conditions, but we made it to the airport just fine! Before I recap our trip, I have to share these first snow pictures!
So, we were very happy that it was a high temperature in Orlando – perfect for swimming! We stayed at the Swan hotel – we have stayed in the Dolphin a few times, but this was our first time at the Swan. These hotels are technically on Disney property, but they aren’t fully Disney hotels, so while there is transportation to the Disney Parks, there is not included transportation from the airport, and you don’t get Magic Bands, so you still have regular Disney tickets. However, you can still book your fast passes 60 days out, so I liked having that benefit!
Later that evening, we headed over to Disney Springs, formerly known as Downtown Disney. We looked around in some stores, watched the Drone Show, and did some pin trading!
So that was Day 1! Next time I’ll start sharing our time in the actual parks!
