Default Birthday Trip

We leave tomorrow for a quick trip to celebrate my birthday. We are staying at OKW. The only plans are a birthday lunch at the Hollywood Brown Derby and a breakfast at Oliviaís. Otherwise we will simply enjoy the Food and Wine festival. Hopefully I will be able to post some daily updates.

Travel Day

We were up again before the crack of dawn. Finished packing and we were out of the house by 5:30. Everything went fine at the airport and soon we were on the plane. For the first time we did carry on and it was nice not having to stop at baggage claim. Pleasantly surprised to discover the rental cars location was open on the terminal B side. We rented from Alamo and there was no line.

Very quickly we were on our way. Drove to OKW to pick up my wifeís wheelchair. Of course our room was not ready so off to Epcot we went. I was surprised that there was a lot of handicapped parking available. We parked and went in and enjoyed the festival. It was vert hot. We walked around the festival trying various things. Enjoyed the Appleseed Orchard especially the air conditioning. The frozen apple drink and apple tart were very good.

We hung around Epcot until 4 and our room was still not ready so we left and went back to the front desk at OKW. We were planning to go back to Epcot for the evening. The CM said our room wasnít ready yet but she found us another first floor which was fine with us. So we drove there and unpacked the car. We relaxed in the room and enjoyed being out of the heat. I guess we relaxed too much as we didnít get back to Epcot. We did get hungry so got something to eat at Goods. The food was better than expected. We sat in the shade at a picnic table enjoying a nice breeze. After a while we went back to the room. It was a long travel day so we went to bed.
