I am finally getting this done after being home a week. I am trying to cheer myself up as I have a tooth that had a root canal a couple of months ago but something went wrong and it keeps hurting and I’m going to have to go through another root canal or have it pulled. I am very afraid of dental work. :pinch:
Anyway!!! On to the trip report!
Cast: Me and DS6 for MK day and add DH and DstepD 18 for the cruise.
DS and I have an uneventful flight and get right on a ME bus. But, we had to wait about 15 minutes before it left. This made the difference for not being able to make our PS for Ohana, but I was doubtful anyway since our flight was pushed back by a couple of hours before we left.
On the bright side our bus stop was first - Contemporary. We checked in and got the garden wing room we were supposed to get. I did not really feel like asking for an upgrade. It is a bit of a long walk to our room in the north wing but at least we did not have our bags - they were with ME.
We watched Wishes from the parking lot there as our room did not have a view. It was strange watching them there and took away a little bit for me. I have always watched right in front of the castle and honestly did not realize the fireworks were not directly over the castle. Thinking about this I realized that for safety reasons they would not be but it was strange to see it off center.
About ME the driver said expect 1- 3 hours to get your bags but I was really hoping it was not to be 3. I thought ahead to pack PJs for us both and toothbrush for ds but I forgot to put my toothbrush and toothpaste in my bag. So, I got to find out what watermelon flavored toothpaste tastes like :blow: using your finger to brush with. I really tried to hold out for our bags. We got on the ME bus at 8:30 so 3 hours would be 11:30. At 11:00 I put DS to bed as I know we had a big day tomorrow and got in bed at 11:15. I did not like ME only because I was very uneasy going to bed without even knowing my luggage made it. In retrospect I would have picked up my bags at baggage claim and took them to my ME bus myself for a late flight.
I woke up in the night and saw the message light blinking so I figured the bags had made it. I did not sleep very well anyway. I called in the am and found the message was left a little after 11:30 so it really was 3 hours. I called to get the bags and we were all set.
