Well, here is our trip report. We had a relaxing time, we tried a lot of things for the first time, we ate at a lot of new places, we saw Mr & Mrs Tigger, we meet the best CM in the World, someone was in our room, some news from an Imagineer and more. That’s the short version.
Here is the rest of the story…
Our first day started out very early, as in 1:30AM after going to bed at about 10:30pm and who can sleep when you are going to Disney. Brenda was so afraid that we would not make it on time, well at 3:00am in the morning there is no one on the roads and by driving at a high rate of speed we made the 2 1/2 hour drive in 1 1/2 hours.
We get some breakfast and wait to board the plane and Brenda says what are you going to do on the plane. I am going to sleep! In the row behind us is a mom, dad, baby boy, little girl and grandma. We take off and Brenda settles in with her travel blanket and pillow, I turn on my I pod, settle down and…bam…right in the head, I jump, the baby wants grandma. I try again…bam…bam…bam…off and on for two and a half hours little feet kicking the back of my chair, bam in the back of the head, he wants mom now, bam…back to grandma. Every time they pass this kid back and forth I get kicked in the head. Several times I look at the parents and nothing. By the time we land I am thinking they will apologize as we leave the plane. They do, but not to me, they apologize to the lady sitting in my row across the aisle and say I hope he wasn’t to loud. I was all ready to say that’s OK, it is hard keeping little ones occupied UNTIL they said nothing to me. (I sure hope this wasn’t any of you!) Well, all of this leads to our meeting what would turn out to be the best CM.
We arrive at the Beach Club Villas and we check in. It is 10:AM and we can not get in our room until 4:PM. We have our carry-on luggage with us and we are so tired we can not decide what to do. We take our luggage with us and decide to go look for something to eat, then we stop and decide to leave the luggage and go eat if we can get our luggage back easily. We go back to check in (we had not went very far) and Isabel greets us by name and asks what she can do for us. Brenda explains that we have been up and traveling since 1:30 am and we want to leave the luggage but will be back for it soon.
Isabel gets on the phone, starts making calls and in a few minutes she has housekeeping cleaning a room immediately and in about 10 to 15 minutes we had a room. She tells them that we have been traveling, are tired and need a room now. She tells us that Beaches and Cream is now opening so we went over and had our first lunch at Beaches and Cream and went back to our room and took naps!
At Beaches and Cream we split a double cheeseburger and some onion rings. It was very good. Just look at those onion rings.
