Day 1 - November 1
Our flight is at 7 AM, leaving Vegas and landing at 3 PM in JFK, followed by a 50 minute layover before departing to Orlando and arriving there at 7:30. Needless to say, it was a very long traveling day. After getting off the plane, we head over to the Magical Express counter to check in and literally were on our seats on the bus 5 minutes later. It was the first time we ever took the ME and I was more than excited about the whole thing! We were finally in Orlando after 3 years and heading to WDW!!!
The bus leaves minutes later and the drivers tells us he was going to get us to WDW in 25 minutes. Cue the in-bus entertainment where we watched a video about the new attractions, shows, etc in WDW. The driver than announces our arrival to WDW, where my face lit up like a Christmas tree seeing the “Welcome to Walt Disney World” Sign. We were staying at PC, which I was also very excited about. It was our first stay there.
After arriving at PC and being greeted by CMs, we enter the lobby and check in. We stayed at the 80’s building, which I thought was very cool because I was born in the 80’s and was dying to see what they had in regards to decorations. We head to our building, which wasn’t too far from Classics Hall ( a mere 5 minute walk) and head towards a giant rubic’s cube. We stayed at building 9 right on the first floor. I got a kick out of seeing the computer disks and all the sayings and pictures on the buildings as we walked along the pool to get to our room.
Our room was small, two double beds, but it’ll do. It’s just the two of us. We only had a carry on bag with us, which I packed some spare PJ’s to lounge around in while we waited for ME to drop off our luggage. We were getting hungry so we headed over to Classic Hall to check out the food court. We picked up the refillable mugs and some grub for our dinner. Music was playing everywhere. The soundtrack for the PC grounds ranged from 50’s to 90’s music. I thought that was pretty awesome to say the least.
We decided to tool around the grounds for a bit, to check out what was around us. I LOVED seeing Roger Rabbit standing on the turpentine barrell that was not too far from our room. Every day that I saw Roger, I always remembered that scene where he was hiding in the bar and Judge Doom was knocking on the wall saying, “Shave and a hair cut” followed by Roger bursting through the wall and singing, “To bits!” He had that exact pose as he stood on the barrel. Rob called me a dork but I didn’t care.
We went back to our room to lounge around and wait for ME to drop off our luggage. It was too late for us to go to any park, we got to our hotel around 8:30. I immediately crashed around 10 because I had been up for about 36 hours!! I worked on Halloween, drove Rob to work that night, went to a halloween party at a friend’s house, picked rob up at 4 AM and left for WDW 3 hours later without going to bed at all. Rob joins me in bed a few minutes later. 2 hours later, a knock on the door wakes us up and it’s ME dropping off our bags. Once our bags were tossed on our spare bed, we went back to sleep.
