June 13We spent the morning at Hollywood Studios, where we rode Tower of Terror, met Prince Caspian and took the studio backlot tour. Disney’s airport shuttle service picked us up shortly after 3:00, which got us to the airport in plenty of time for our 5:55 flight. We had pre-checked our luggage at the hotel, so all I had to do was verify our gate assignment before we passed through security. That’s when I discovered that dreaded red word on the departures screen next to our flight number: “Delayed.”

The plane that we were supposed to take to Houston had mechanical problems when it arrived in Orlando. As a result, we had to wait for them to send us another plane from Houston. Our departure time kept getting pushed back, and we finally left the gate around 9:35. By the time we retrieved our bags and got home, it was around midnight. Not an especially magical end to our trip, but everyone took it in stride. We miss Disney already, but we are so glad to be home!
