Boat to Magic KingdomWednesday was probably the only day we had with no real plans other than dining reservations. Given that our first reservation was for the Rose & Crown Pub in EPCOT—and that Gina and I had only been to that park briefly so far this visit—we decided that’d be the best place to start our day. So, fairly early in the a.m., we headed out to the boat dock to get to the Magic Kingdom area, where we’d pick up the first of two monorails that’d allow us to reach EPCOT.

Magic KingdomWe got back fairly late after Monday night’s EPCOT visit (transportation’s not always all that speedy), so we figured we’d take it a little easy on Tuesday (at least to start with). We had a lazy morning, slept in relatively late, then moseyed on out to Magic Kingdom (where it seems we started several of our mornings).

In addition to the Amish stuff that seems to be an attraction for out-of-towners, Lancaster is home to a couple of big outlet malls, which are great for holiday shopping.

We’ve made it a tradition, including a trip to the outlets and an overnight stay.

Unfortunately, my difficulties. Still more unfortunate is the fact that I may not be able to do anything about them… but it’s long past time to try.

There was one issue I did not bring up in my recent blog of our Walt Disney World trip. It was a problem, but one so small, so inconsequential, so meaningless, that it hardly seemed worth mentioning. So what did I do? I e-mailed Walt Disney World Guest Communications… and I actually heard back.

Gina has her medical boards tomorrow, with orientation today, in Omaha, Nebraska, of all places. For some reason, the fates have decided that the stress of the boards alone isn’t enough, so her flights have been an absolute nightmare from the beginning. And it may not be over yet.
