Greetings from Disney World!

I made it!

I woke up very early to get to the airport for my 7:45 a.m. flight. I didn't sleep well last night, but I'm here, and I'm going to have a magical time.

I am staying at the Disney Beach Resort Hotel. When I got here, I went out on the beach and had a sandwich and rested and read for over an hour. It was wonderful.

I was lounging out there on that stretch of beach. This is the view from the balcony of my room.

Then I changed clothes and went to the fitness center, and used the elliptical machine and the treadmill for about 35 minutes or so. I figure that since my schedule and my children are my chief excuses for not working out that I should take advantage of it.

Now I'm going to clean up a bit and meet the other Mommy Bloggers and the Disney folks and the Blue Suit Media folks in the lobby at 4:30 for a reception. We'll all get to know each other (I think that people will be trickling in) before heading over to Italy in Epcot for dinner.

I haven't seen Mickey yet, but I'll keep you updated. We are slated to attend a character breakfast on Sunday.

It's the International Flower Garden Show and Expo this month.

How'd you score such a great view? We won't talk about mine but suffice it to say that it looked nothing like yours!
