Disney Day 6 – Winding Down

The NASA tour we booked included an airboat ride and we met back at the bus for the 45 minute trip inland to a location that would make a great stereotype for “the south”. After a quick safety lesson (don’t stick your hand out over the water or you could lose it) we were herded …
