Leaving on a jet plane

Chris has to travel a lot for his job and normally I never get to go.  But when he told me in November that he was working a trade show in Orlando in January and asked me if I wanted to go I of course said yes.  It helped too that it was at a Disney resort and that we got to go to Disney World one night.  The only thing that I had to buy was my flight and food.  So we booked our flights which were pretty cheap out of Branson.  The Branson airport is really small and the only flight that left that day was ours.  We arrived two hours early for our flight and security wasn't even open yet!  We made a pit stop in Atlanta long enough for me to go to the bathroom before boarding our flight to Orlando.

Once we arrived in Orlando we took the Disney Magical Express tour bus to our Disney resort.  If you plan on traveling to Disney this is the best way to do it! Our resort was one of the closest ones to the airport but it was still a 20 minute bus ride.  Once we arrived and checked in we had to walk a mile to our room.  Thankfully the weather was beautiful and we got to see a beautiful sunset.  We had dinner that night with some of Chris's coworkers. Then we turned in for the night since we had to be up early to set up for the trade show.
I loved that everything had a Mickey Mouse design!
We woke up early to sneeze a run in. We couldn't pass up running in warm weather! We had breakfast at the resort and then went to set up for the show.  There wasn't much to set up so after lunch we got our tickets to Disney and headed to Magic Kingdom for the afternoon. We got to pick which park to go to and this is the one that we chose since we both have never been before.

Strange to see flowers building in January.
I loved these birds.  I'm not sure what they were called though.
