Disney Day 1: Rain, Rain, Go Away

So here we are in the hap, hap, happiest place on Earth and it's raining cats and dogs. Or mice and ducks. Or pixies and princesses. Whatever, it's raining. And it sucks.

And it's cold. It's like we never left North Carolina, only the prices of beer went up about 75 percent. It's no snowstorm-hitting-the-Northeast or anything, but it's not supposed to get warmer than 55 degrees today. Did I mention that it's raining, like, an inch a minute here, too?

The Disney bus driver told us some forecasters even talked about snow flurries north of Orlando. WTF?!?!?

So here was our day today: Get up at 6:30 a.m., hang up around the timeshare watching Playhouse Disney until everyone wakes up. Head to breakfast at Olivia's and decide to test the rain. Jump on bus and go to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Get to Hollywood Studios amidst heavier rains. Decide to change course. Jump back on bus and go shopping in Downtown Disney. Shop and eat sundaes at Ghirardelli. Head back on bus for timeshare. Watch The Little Mermaid. Keep eye on rain at 2:15 p.m.

What are we going to do for the next seven hours? Probably eat something, somewhere. Pray for the rain to stop sounds like a plan, considering there's more in the forecast for the next 12-plus hours.
