|My sister, me, and my cousin - about to leave for the airport and very excited!|
This journey starts on August 14, 2011. We left my house late morning - my parents, my sister (Samantha), my cousin (Jessie), my at-the-time boyfriend (James), and me - and headed to the airport! After a nondescript flight, we were in Orlando International Airport before we knew it! We grabbed Starbucks in the airport and headed to rent a minivan (the most comfortable type of rental car that would fit all six of us). Soon we were in the minivan, listening to the Disney music CD my sister burned for us, pulling up to our hotel for the night: the Four Points Orlando Studio City.
The resort was fine, nothing special, and after checking in, we didn't stay for long. We left to head to my grandma's house for a short visit before we headed to the Beach Club for dinner! (Now we're getting to the good stuff!)
Beaches and Cream. But we (at least the Disney-obsessed ones of us) declared that this was worth it, so we sat around and chatted, watched a little bit of Gnomeo and Juliet on the Beach Club beach, and we were even able to see some of IllumiNations from where we were sitting on the beach! After an hour, our tables were ready, and we got down to eating. I had a cheeseburger, and it was good as usual. And since we were celebrating my sister's birthday, we decided that there was no other acceptable way to end the meal besides a Kitchen Sink.

Day two of the trip was relatively boring. We woke up from the Four Points Orlando, and after breakfast, we packed up all our belongings, got back in the minivan, and headed for another family visit. After an hour or two visiting my other grandma, uncle, and aunt, we were on our way to the shore! That night, we stayed at the Four Points Cocoa Beach, near the port. We were to be getting on the Dream the following day, so we wanted to stay in a hotel nearby.
