Leaving Disney, Traveling in the RV

Time to head back home in the RV, but wanted to take a few snapshots of our room and the little details...
We wanted to try to have Emma sleep in a bed by herself.  I still sleep in her room on a separate mattress, and when she wants to get out of her bed to come in mine...there's little sleep with the kicking and as much as I love to snuggle...I like space when I sleep.
So the hotel was able to put a rail on each side of the other queen size bed...but it didn't work with her sleeping in it by herself...so Dennis took a day or two and I took the other days so we could each take turns trying to get some sleep...
Mickey is everywhere...you don't see the colors or hear music in the lobby...nothing really seems Disney in this hotel...it's subtle...and always fun to try to find the Mickey ears...
Another angle of our room...on the very last day, we finally asked if we could have a microwave, so we could heat the milk for our lattes.  Which we would have asked sooner (lesson learned) because the tiny tiny latte I got in one of the restaurants downstairs cost more than a venti latte at Starbucks.  Thankfully, I only got one, but lesson learned...
More Mickey's can be spotted on the shower curtain...
Beautiful hotel and rooms...
So we hit the road in our new adventure of traveling in the rented RV...we're able to stop halfway (Tallahassee) this time since there is no football game going on and spots available at the RV park...so that really helped not driving so much in one day.  We usually stop at a Cracker Barrel when traveling, but this was our first...
Then Dennis spotted Krispy Kreme...so we stopped there to get some donuts...and we had to hurry...it was about to rain...and not too fun driving on unfamiliar city streets in a rented RV...and we did have some leaks...
I felt like we were not level the whole night...but got a little sleep...and up the next morning to finally take a look at our surroundings...it was beautiful with the huge trees and moss and a much bigger RV park than the one in Lake City.
Taking out the trash...had to get a few more pics of how beautiful this park was...

Next stop home...
We rented a Class C RV...here's some pics inside to give you an idea of how it looks...
zooming out so you can see the bigger picture of what it's like...Dennis slept up top there...
kitchen area
Little table to eat, play games, and do art...
the shower...
the bedroom where Emma and I slept...
and the all important bathroom...we definitely made fewer stops ;)
Dennis is a neat freak...so thankfully, he did sanitize the entire RV with bleach.  The only thing I really didn't like about the RV was how bumpy the ride was.  But we were told that a rental and one you buy are made differently and to not compare the ride.  A very fun trip, but we were all glad to be home...nothing like home sweet home...

Pin It!
