We drove to KOA in Kissimmee, FL, where we’ll stay for several days.
After I got off work we headed to Magic Kingdom, the first park we always go to!
We went to the Polynesian to eat at Captain Cook’s, and our plan was to take the monorail to Epcot from there. But…the Polynesian is under renovation and the monorail is not stopping there. So we walked from the Polynesian to the Transportation and Ticket Center to get on the monorail there, but Avin started feeling bad, so we headed back toward the Polynesian. Then, he started feeling better so we walked BACK to the Transportation and Ticket Center, went through the health screening, and then found the Epcot monorail was not operating! Are you kidding me?? So we went back to the Polynesian where we had parked and just drove to Epcot. We were tired of walking before we even entered the park!
We went to Animal Kingdom today. We were able to ride the Kilimanjaro Safari with only a 20 minute wait!
Just a work and school day. We didn’t do the parks today, since there were no available passes. We needed a break anyway.
Another work / school day, which was challenging. Kids didn’t want to do school, and cellular service was abysmal today, which made both work and school not fun. The campground WiFi has been horrible / non-existent, and both AT&T and Verizon show a few bars of service but are often unusable for some reason. The kids need the Internet in order to watch their school videos, and they get really frustrated when they can’t make it work (they have to finish school work before they can play). On top of that, we had some VPN issues at work. Made for a frustrating day.
We grilled some teriyaki chicken for dinner, which was really good!
Carla drove us to Daytona Beach this afternoon while I worked on our way there. Our plan was to drive on the beach and build sandcastles, but traffic made it take longer to get there so we ended up just eating dinner at Crabby’s Oceanside. It was nice to sit outside and listen to the waves while we ate dinner!
After work, Avin and I went to Epcot while Carla stayed at the RV with Tripp to get ready for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving lunch. Avin and I had fun riding a few rides! We rode Spaceship Earth, Figment, and Living with the Land (which had some neat Christmas decorations we didn’t expect!)
Happy Thanksgiving!! Carla made us an awesome Thanksgiving lunch! She even got some decorations to make our picnic table look nice.
We then headed to Magic Kingdom, which appeared to be pretty empty when we got there…
After work, we drove to an indoor skate park in Orlando. Tripp had a lot of fun! I was wishing I had brought my skateboard!
