Florida 2018 - Promises made and promises delivered - Day 2 - Magic Bands, Magic Kingdom and Magic M

Anyone who has ever stayed in a Florida villa will probably understand the concept of a walk in wardrobe. Yup, its somewhere to put the junk and close the door. As we all up early on our first full day Caj and I unpacked and carefully stored our suitcases in the wardrobe whilst Niff enjoyed some more pool time.



In our house there is no doubt I am the early riser. When staying at the villa I would often be found sat under the lanai with a cup of coffee just loving the stillness of the morning before the pool pumps and filters kick in. Its a special time to think and plan for the day ahead.



For anyone who is wondering the rental villa is located on the Iandian Wells Subdivision near where the bottom of 535 joins 192. It may not be the most up to date villa in the area but it meets our needs and the location for shopping and theme parks is spot on.

Having a private pool outside the bedroom door is priceless.



So this is where BB has one of his random moments. How many of you ever watch TV when watching a game show or something and be shouting at the screen because you know the contestant has got the question wrong. Im a bit different because one of my pet hates (Mick, if you are reading you will get this!) is when T.V. presenters on A place in the sun Dont know what a lanai is..

So for the record Jonnie Irwin THIS is a lanai! Its the covered bit under the villa where you can sit and drink/eat/snooze even if the sun is at its highest or its lashing it down.



A quick peak through Niff's bedroom door in the villa shows it in what is probably one of its tidier moments 😊



Anyway, time to go back to Niff. This was his first full day in Florida and to be honest we didnt know if he was going to take to Disney at or or even (dare I say it!) who some of the characters were. Time to find out I guess.

We made it! I think from memory we took the monorail from the TTC to MK but it is a long time ago now



Our first character photo with the big cheese 😊



At this point I asked Niff the question I had been putting off for fear of the answer. Do you actually have a favourite Disney character?the answer was a resounding YES but I couldnt have foreseen which one! The answer was



Then we took Niff on what was his first proper ride splash mountain (we are in the 2 back rows here). He likes the more action rides which makes me think that IF we take him back (thats not a promise Niff) we may have to do Universal



Both Caj and I love our photos and some of the magic photos are extra special. So here are a couple taken with the castle in the background.





Anyway back to the villa for a chilled evening.

I reckon that Johnny Irwin has been reading the DIBB. Must be at least 12 months since I threw anything at the TV as a result of him calling the pool screen a lanai.
