Christi and Ryan on the Hulk. The first ride of the trip, and when we realized how sweet the passes turned out to be. Happy day.Christi, me and Horton Hears a Who
The ride I shouldn't have gone on...it looks tame, I know, but I didn't know it went backwards!
After riding Jaws, and being rained on by Tropical Storm BarryDay 2: We stayed at the Disney All Star Sports Resort. Here's a breakdown of the room: decor circa 1960, teeny bathroom, no hairdryer, worst bed I've ever slept on in my life. Sounds like a blast, eh? Well it turned out to be worth it when Lon, the manager, hooked us up with free Park Hoppers for our troubles. Thanks Lon! After checking out of the hotel, we hit up the south's finest dining (for Christi and Ryan's first time), where we saw some Orlando Magic players and enjoyed some more typical Waffle House patrons (ie crazy old man who was talking to himself). After breakfast, we did some shopping and drove over to Tampa. Chris and Ryan were headed to a Kenny Chesney concert that night, and I relaxed with a classic. Day 3: Christi couldn't go to Florida without seeing the beach, so we drove over to Clearwater Beach before heading back to the parks.
After the best meal of all time at the Rainforest Cafe. Things that made it the best meal? The air conditioning and being able to sit. Those together were priceless.
After lunch we headed over to Epcot, per Ryan's request. I'd never been, and it was pretty chill. Interesting, but definitely not somewhere I'd rush back to.
Winding down, with a view of the different countries behind us. My flight was at 9:30, so we headed out to the airport soon after this picture was taken. All in all, it was such a great weekend. I was so happy to see Christi...just like old times :) It would've been perfect if Mark had been there. Next time he will be. When we go to visit them. In Vegas.
