It’s been three years since our last Labor Day Weekend trip to Disney so we were excited to hit the road this evening after work and school and get over to Orlando to start our vacation.
We weren’t as lucky as in years past, however, and were delayed on I-4 due to an accident. Our attempt to take the back/side roads to circumvent the jam ended up in just more traffic so even with our early (before 5pm start) we weren’t checked into our hotel (Disney’s Boardwalk Villas) until around 7pm.
After getting settled, we walked over to Epcot and grabbed a light dinner in France. It was raining when we were done, so we fast-walked back to the Boardwalk, avoiding the raindrops as best we could. The weather eventually tapered off so we grabbed some warm drinks from the bakery and a funnel cake and watched what we could see of the Epcot (and Hollywood Studios) fireworks from the Boardwalk before turning in for the night. Extra Magic early morning hours at Hollywood Studios tomorrow morning!
