#1

The window finally opened to return to Disney World on June 25th for a trip to start July 9th. We had been saving but never found the right time until now.We knew where we wanted to stay and where we wanted to eat but because it was the last minute type trip we booked it though our travel agent Monday the 27th of June.

The cast - Two adults in their 50’s
To - The Wilderness Lodge
For - 7 nights

We started at 3 am July 9th got to the bus to Chicago at 5:00 am and boarded our plane at 9:45 am. After a good flight we got to the Lodge about 3pm.

Oh my goodness, 24 years is certainly a long time. Can’t wait to read your trip report, and see Disney through your eyes.

The last time we were at Disney World was 1987 , before AK or the Studios.:blink:
But back to the trip report. After getting settled in and cleaning up a bit. We were off to dinner at the Grand Floridian Cafe. We both had steaks and we had the sampler to share for dessert.The food and service was wonderful.

After looking around the shops and lobby at the Floridian we were off to the MK. What is interesting is that the last time we were at Disney World they were building the Grand Floridan.
Well after all the years the Castle stills makes you feel that warm magical feeling. We rode some of are old favorites, Pirates, HM and JC and then the Country Bear Jamboree.Then in was time for the ELP and Wishes. After Wishes we looked around Tomorrow land a bit then took a boat back to the resort.We were a little tired but when we got back to the resort we only found one of are bags made it in from the airport. I called Magic Express and they said they had a few problems and they would call when it came in. To make a long story short we did get the bag around 1:30pm the next day.
