Well we’ve been back three weeks and I have yet to begin this trip report, so I figure now is as good of a time as any!
Cast of Characters:
DS almost 2
Andrea & Will
and Andrea’s Mom
Trip: October 17th - 24th
@ Boardwalk Villa’s
We began the morning at about 3:45. DH and I woke and dressed then woke the kids. The car was already packed and all we had to do was hop in. We headed to pick up my mom (25 minutes away) and then to the airport (another 25 minutes from there). Our flight was out at 7:10. We of course hit unbelievable traffic due to roads being paved and I began to stress. I needed to get the kids some breakfast before loading onto the plane for a 3 hour ride (we planned for plenty of time to stop at D&D for bagels and the such, but the traffic was throwing a wrench into our plans)!
Long story short… we made it to the plane (I think we were teh very last to board) and off we went.
We landed in Orlando and called for our car rental to pick us up and off we went. When we checked into the car rental agency they offered us a larger car and said we would save even more than we had thought!!! oooohhhh, now that is what we call beginning on a good note! Off to Disney!
We arrived, I played dumb on the whole DVC valet thing (not with the actual valet though, I was nice to them, not their fault!).
We checked in our room was not ready, but when they actually gave us our room we did not get our boarwalk view, but we were right next to our friends. That worked out!
We headed over to the Magic Kingdom and let the magic begin. I forgot my camera in the locked baggage that we had bell services check while we were waiting for our room! So I don’t have many photos of our first day. When we get our photopass cd there are some of that day!
As always we rode the teacups first, it is the girls favorite!!! Then we did the “cars” (Indy Speedway) DH always has thought that they should refurbish this ride to be representative of the cars from the actual movie “Cars”. I think it’s a GREAT idea! We did a couple of other things and then headed over to the Grand Floridian to have dinner at 1900 Park Fare. It was terrific! Great character interaction, and the kids had a great time!
We decided to go back to the room and settle in, (we got our first towel animal/character on this trip, the girls were so excited!) we had to make a trip to walmart for some necessities and get an early start at the fun in the AM!
Pictures to follow…
