We began this adventure when I got a great discount code for a room only. Like always, I start fiddling with the dates and airfare, and to my surprise, found very cheap airfare (for April) for an early flight on a Monday, and late flight on a Wednesday. For whatever reason, all other options were almost double the price. I took it as a sign. Well, dh is part of the many people getting laid off and then starting a new job, so he didn’t have any vacation time. Kids were in school, so my natural response was to check with Mom, full well that I knew she would say no, because of being on a tight budget. WRONG! I had e-mailed her the idea and costs and within 5 minutes, she’s on the phone, calling me at work asking me if I was serious. My then response was “are you serious?!?” and 5 minutes later I booked the flight online, and was on the phone with Disney.
So it’s me and my Mom staying at Port Orleans French Quarter for three days. The flight was wonderful (Southwest) and arrived 10 minutes early. Only did carry on so I thought we were ahead of schedule, until I took the elevator to level 1 on the A side rather than the B. That began our new adventure, seeing the entire airport, as we walked around trying to find Magical Express. Now remember, Mom has severe arthritus so I was pushing her in a wheelchair, with two carry on bags. Then the laughing started. Boy, did I get a workout!
When we arrived, it just started raining as we were on Magical Express. From the picture below, you can see that it didn’t damper Mom’s mood at all!
