This morning we took off and headed to the Pop Century Hotel where we were able to check in despite our early arrival time of 10:00am. We threw our bags in our room and hopped on the bus to go over to Epcot. We thought this may be Rainah's favorite part - riding the bus. She loves buses!
The flower and garden show was going on, so there were a few extra things we got to see and do there, but we made sure to hit the Nemo ride first since that is really one of the few Disney movies she has really gotten into. She loved it and as soon as we got off, she wanted to go on another ride. There was a huge aquarium we walked around and looked at, as well as an interactive experience with Crush the turtle.
We did a lot of walking and at one point decided we'd better go ahead and rent a stroller so that I didn't have to keep carrying her. We put her in it and a few minutes later a cast member gave her a few stickers. She seemed to be staring very intently at them for quite awhile, and then I realized that she was actually sleeping. Poor thing was beat by the middle of the afternoon.
We had a reservation at the Italian restaurant, which was amazing! We walked around a bit more and then Rainah got to meet Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto. We weren't sure exactly how she would react, but after just a little prodding, she was giving hugs, blowing kisses, and tickling them. At that point, we were all ready to get back to the hotel and get some ZZZ's before tomorrow's day at the Magic Kingdom!
She went down the red slide, and then I lost sight of her for a second; when I saw her, she was on the "big kids" play area, half way up this thing!
