The time before I head to WDW drags like a bag of sand—but once you are there—whoosh–it goes by in a flash. It wouldn’t be so bad if you are lucky enough to know you will be heading back within the year. When you only go every 2-3 years—it’s too early to plan!! Plus—I like to get that “Pin” discount!!! lol
For this trip, I did not take as many photos—I didn’t even use my camera—only my iPhone so the ones I did take are not the greatest. My DD took better pictures. I am not sure how many I will even upload here—it seems so much harder to upload pictures to this site now.
We started off our trip at Reagan National early Sunday morning. East trek through security…nice flight down. I always love that first step out the plane into MCO and heading for that shuttle. It’s such a great feeling. But boy was that feeling hot!!!
ME was ready and waiting, and although there were more people loading on buses than we have ever seen before, we were in the room at POFQ within the hour. I consider that good!! They have changed the Welcome movie on the ME bus…thank goodness!!! lol
Our room was ready, and it was in an excellent location. I had requested an upper floor room in a building close to the food court and we got just that. It was very nice and quiet the whole week. ME has changed they way they deliver luggage. They use to say it would arrive within a few hours—and most of the time–our luggage would get to the hotel before we do. Now, they told us that by the end of the day, it would be in our room. We had packed our carryon with what we would need for the rest of the day, so we changed, slathered on the suntan lotion and off we went. Did I say how hot it was???
We had Fps for Afternoon Parade viewing so we headed straight for the designated site. it is right in front of the castle. You do need to get there at the 20 min before mark if you want to be right up at the rope/curb, but it was worth a FP to not have to sit there in the sun 2 hours waiting for it.
