Disney - the beginning...

We've been here for three days now, and we've done our fair share of getting wet. Our first day was at Blizzard Beach, above. We played lots on the slides, the lazy river and in the waves. It was hot and despite the suncream lots of us have sun burnt shoulders.
On Monday it was Francis' birthday. We played in Beth's pool and had burgers and birthday cake, although not at the same time.
We also went to Universal Islands of Adventure where Harry Potter and the Wizarding World resides. It was fab. I rode the Forbidden Journey ride and managed not to throw up. The attention to detail in the whole area is unbelievable. Even the loo has Moaning Myrtle in! Of course we had to try some Butterbeer, it was very sweet, I'm not sure I could finish a whole one.

It was also one of the hottest April days on record in Florida. When we were driving home at about 2.00 the temperature display said 104 degrees. I don't know what that is in English, but it's blooming hot!

Today we went to Animal Kingdom. More getting wet. We rode Kali River Rapids quite early on. Ellie and I got soaked right through to our knickers. The others didn't so they went straight back on. Then we met up with Beth and Adrienne and Caitlin went on again. Later (when we were dry again) we rode with Mum and Dad too, and Ellie and I got soaked through again.

They also liked Expedition Everest. Its a rollercoaster. I didn't go on. Adrienne and Caitlin did it five times!
