Disney Fantasy Trip Report – Part 1

Leave a comment

We have just returned from an awesome week on the Disney Fantasy! Over the next few days I’m going to recap the trip here.

Saturday – Day One

Before we left on the trip, I was very fortunate to be able to get in a longish 10 mile run with my running group. The group met at 4am. Yep, you read the correctly. The estimated high for the day was well over 100 with about a million percent humidity. Since most of the group had 15-20 on their schedule a 4am start time was called for. Once I heard about the early start, I decided that even though our flight to Orlando left at 8:30, I could get in a few miles.

As you can see in the photo below, we actually had a large turn out for that early hour.

After my 10 miles were behind me, it was time to head out to the airport. While we have 5 kids, this trip was a last minute plan and three of our five were at grandparents houses. As such, we only took two. That was a mini- vacation in and of itself!

Tomorrow, I’ll be posting about our first few days on the ship!

Have you ever gotten up super early – either to beat the heat or to get one last run in before vacation?
