We said goodbye to Marjorie and drove down to Orlando to spend the next few
days in Disneyworld! Our friends Tammy and
Terry were there with Tammy's parents (Dennis and Sheila), Tammy's brother
Ryan, and his girlfriend Amy. We stayed with them at Disney's Boardwalk, a beautiful resort (with a fun waterslide).
We visited all four of the major parks at Disneyworld: MGM Studios, the Animal
Kingdom, Epcot Center, and the Magic Kingdom.

The Magic Kingdom is essentially a replica of Disneyland in California. We
spent our time there riding the classic roller coasters (Thunder Mountain)and goofing around with the characters.
