Alison and family took a "rest day" during their trip. They went resort hopping on the monorail line.

They also spent the morning at Disney Springs, enjoying it before the heat and crowds set in. And of course shopping for weapons that every 7 year old needs.

The rain was welcome, as it cooled everyone off. But Alison found herself running in a downpour (while her husband stayed dry and photographed).

The Peoplemover decided to breakdown as they rode. Unfortunately it happened in the portion of the ride that was in pitch black.

During the "blackout" someone handed our not-quite-two-year-old friend a granola bar. And most of it ended up smeared adorably on her face.

Meeting Mickey was a highlight of this day!
