Marathon Weekend Report - Day 1 - I'M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!

For once, I had actually started packing several days ahead of my departure, instead of the night before!
The shoes went in first
This trip was my first time flying SouthWest and their flight doesn't take off as early as the AirTran flights do.  So I actually didn't have to be to the Indianapolis Airport at such an ungodly hour in the morning!  This year, I remembered to take a picture of the bus shelter, so I would know where I needed to get off at when I made my trip back home!

First time flying SouthWest!

My first flight with Southwest was definately a new learning experience.  I ended up sitting near the tail of the plane so I could get a window seat.  Once in my seat, I then opened the shade to then discover I was right next to the engine and couldn't see anything.  Oh well, I listened to some podcasts and attempted to read a little bit on the way down.  I may have dozed off for a little bit, but it wouldn't have been very long.

Once at MCO, I quickly made my way to the monorail.

Once into the main terminal, I hightailed it over to Magical Express to give them my bag ticket so they could pick it up for me and take it to Pop.  That went smoothly and I was soon on the Magical Express bus, on my way to WALT DISNEY WORLD!

I met up with Dad shortly after arriving at Pop, but before Dad arrived, I ran into Robbie from our Hakuna Matata running group!

Dad and I got in a little bit of park time before I headed over to Animal Kingdom Lodge to go to dinner at BOMA with some of our other Hakuna Matata running team members that were also into Disney a little bit early.
