We were up early, who can sleep when you are leaving for Walt Disney World? The car was packed and ready to go and so were we. We made the drive to Indianapolis in record time and found the hotel just fine. We checked in and filled out the paperwork to leave our car there and they took us right to the airport. The driver that took us (his name was Mike) was just hilarious. Once at the airport we checked our bags early got our boarding passes and now we wait. (We were early!) We walked around the airport and looked in the shops and then went to Friday’s for lunch. As we are sitting there I get out our boarding passes and discover that we are sitting in seats A and C, what is that? I leave Brenda there and go back to the desk only to feel really stupid. I say we just got our tickets and we are not sitting together. He looks at me like and says yes you are there are no B seats in the plane. OK – no B seats – what is that? I have heard of no floor 13 but no B? Oh well, our flight down was a little rough, a lot of turbulence.
We arrive and head right for the Magical Express, and get in line. Then it hits me, there are children everywhere and they are all wearing the same shirts! I lean over very calmly and say to Brenda – please tell me there is not something going on that we did not know about. They were all young children and parents in bright orange shirts, now I am a little worried. We get through Disney’s Magical Express and to our bus and we were off. Soon we were driving under that wonderful sign – Walt Disney World! We were HOME! I am feeling better now – we are home! Then as we arrive at the resort, OH MY GOODNESS – CHEERLEADERS – LOTS OF THEM! I am starting to hyperventilate - Brenda says “I’m sure they are checking out” – yeah right! We check in and head for our room. As we walked out the other door - they were everywhere, walking to and from the rooms, walking towards the busses, and practicing cheers in the grass. It’s going to be a long week! We go to our room drop off our bag and jackets and head for Donald’s Double Feature (ASM’s Shop). This is always our first stop; we get our autograph book and leave for EPCOT! Our first stop - Club Cool. They had 6 different flavors and only 4 of those were working but we did try the Beverly! YUK!
