Fun times! [Apr. 11th, 2003|01:44 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Let me see - we got up today and walked to the Post Office and mailed some things (mostly great big giant checks to the the Internal Revenue Service and to the State Revenue Departments as well - how incredibly annoying). Then we walked to the Celebration Town Hall and officially registered as Celebration Residents. We got bike stickers (we want to get bikes) and our Pool Pass so we can use the pool at Lakeside Park (which is across the street from us - hehe). We then walked around the lake and the park, and went on the awesome nature trail that I can see from our window! We saw lizards and turtles and some of the most pre-historic looking birds. It's cooler today (maybe about 65 or 70 degrees) and very sunny and windy! We walked around another lake (Lake Evalyn) that the nature trail also went around and looked at some gorgeous houses. The neighborhoods around here in Celebration are all very posh and well-kept. Very beautiful architecture as well!

We're getting ready to go to Downtown Disney in a few minutes. Matt has a meeting to go to for Rainforest and I'm going to walk around the shops while he does that. Afterwards we are going to Epcot to get our annual passes! We called them and they told us that we could bring our Missouri driver's licenses along with a copy of our lease here in Celebration to prove that we are Florida residents (and get our discount). Lol, here we are on a strict budget and I'm going to drop $800 on some Disney World tickets, hehe.

So - we're off to have fun! I know I am supposed to be working right now, but after all the stress of moving I need at least this one night to blow off some steam!

Oh yes - I've taken a lot more photos - I am going to upload them soon. I think that my camera cables are in a box that says "Computer Stuff" - I'll find it soon!

Oh your so lucky! Of course take some time off to enjoy yourselves and get to know your new wonderful home! If you see any frogs anywhere around, take pictures!!!!! =)

And by the way, that is definitely a wise investment to purchase the pass. Disney World is too expensive to pay each time you go.

I definitely will be snapping lots of frog-photos! In the next couple of months this place will be littered with tree-frogs!

The pass is sooooo worth it! If I got just six or seven times in the next 365 days it is well worth the money. And knowing me, I'll probably be going a couple of times a week at least (I'm a Disney freak!).

Re:

I am too =) I LOVE Disney World. My fiance has never been and I am dying to take him! We'll probably end up going there for our honeymoon next year!

Tree frogs? Oh YAY!!! We have barely any frogies where I am in Southwest Virginia =(

you guys are so lucky that the weather has been nice.. it could've been super hot or rainy.. cause we get that a lot. i'm glad you guys are happy down here. Celebration seems to be pretty upscale but casual and relaxing too. Thats a mix i could definately use a whole lot more of, but then its almost time for finals and there is no such thing as relaxation during this time of year. enjoy everything and i can't wait to see pictures.

Definitely take time out to enjoy your new surroundings! All work and no play is no fun!

$800 on Disney World tickets??? Wow! How much does it cost to get into Disney for the day?

Hehe - it's about $50/day. We are getting the extra-fancy premium passes that let us go to the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, the Animal Kingdom, MGM Studios, all of the waterparks, DisneyQuest, etc. as many times as we like for the entire year. It's actually only going to be about $530 total though (for us both), since we found out Matt gets in for free at the four major parks since he works at Downtown Disney!

Oooh, extra-fancy premium passes! I didn't realize there was so many different things to do there - Magic Kingdom, Epcot, the Animal Kingdom, MGM Studios, waterparks, DisneyQuest - Wow! That's a lot of stuff! I have no idea what Disneyland is all about. I thought it was just rides. That's great that Matt gets a discount! $530 for the year sounds like a great deal!
