It Was A Good Day

It didn’t begin that way.  I was awakened at 3:00 a.m. (yes, a.m.) by the loudspeakers and noise down on the Boardwalk as Disney’s half-marathon ran by the buildings on the way to EPCOT.  I mean, come on.  Really.  3:00 a.m.?!  In the past it was 4:00 or 4:30 a.m.  The lines were finishing up around 7:00 a.m.

At 9:00 a.m., a friend picked me up and we went together to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  Had a great morning and early afternoon there.  Did the usual: Harambe Safari and It’s a Bug’s Life.  We also went to their Finding Nemo musical.  It was fantastic.  I haven’t seen it since it returned post-pandemic.  Next Wednesday, we’re going to go to Gatorland.  Greg swears by it and I’ve checked it on line.  If the weather is nice, look for some gator pics.

Mid-afternoon, I came back to the Boardwalk and then, this evening, went on a “fireworks cruise” where we pick up a pontoon boat by the Yacht Club marina and queue up under the bridge at EPCOT’s International Gateway and watched their new fireworks show.  Here is a YouTube video of the new show if you’re interested:

Tomorrow is going to be an iffy day.  It’s supposed to be low to mid-70’s and thunderstorms all day.  It’s the same system that may bring snow to us back in the Chicagoland area.  It just might be an indoors, chill-and-do-nothing kind of day tomorrow. 🙂
