So this trip was orginally booked for me, my boyfriend, and my 2 kids…BUT somehow my boyfriend’s brother, sister, and my mother and 2 sisters invited themselves but that is fine the more the merrier!!!
Friday was a very hectic day! There was a lot of last minute things I had to get done and we also had to pick up DBIL and DSIL who were not ready when we got there. So after helping DBIL pack (who by the way only had 3 pair and shorts and 4 shirts packed for a 10 day trip) we were on our way to my DM’s house which was our meeting place since everyone lived in different states. We left from Corinth, MS at a little after 11 pm. (1st mistake) I drove the first 7 hours with NO SLEEP! I usally go to bed about 9 or 10 so I was extra sleepy by 2 or 3 am. I will never again drive to Orlando because for the first 2 days EVERYONE was really cranky from the long drive. We made stops about every 2 hours which made the actual trip about 14 hours. We arrived in Orlando at about 1:30 pm Sat. at the Days Inn in Downtown Orlando. Our plans were to freshen up and browse around City Walk…didn’t happen. We were all too pooped to do anything but get comfortable and rest. Good thing we didn’t make it to City Walk because a tornado was spotted in the area. By this time I’m thinking great everyone is in a bad mood, the weather is horrible…my first trip at WDW is not starting off so great.
After getting some rest DS Sheree and DB Derrick made our way downstairs to the hotel bar for a drink. Saturday night was Karoke night and i really enjoyed it. We didnt stay to long because we had to be get up at 630 Sun morning in order check-in to the All-Star Movies resort and head over to the Animal Kingdom.
