Poor Unfortunate Souls ~ A Spooktacular Trip Back to the World! UPDATE Reality Check
 
Well we've been back for over two weeks and I've only just got started on our TR. There was love, laughter and maybe a few tears, but all in all a fantastic trip, for which we eagerly anticipate next years :teeth:

So...............where to begin, I guess introductions are in order.

Hi :wave: My name is Stephanie and I'm a Disneyholic. I first tasted the sweet nectar of Disney back in 2007 and can't seem to stop myself from going back.

My favourite character is Stitch and favourite movie is Beauty and the Beast. Favourite park is a toughy, but I would have to go with MK as my first and Epcot as my second. I don't really have a favourite ride, but I love all of Fantasy Land if that counts.

Next up is....

This is David, or Dave as he prefers, who is also a Disneyaholic. I think he was the one that first introduced me to Disney. What can I say I succumbed to peer pressure as he's just so darn cute :lovestruc

His favourite character is also Stitch, sorry Goofy you just haven't got anything on this little guy but you will always hold a special place in his heart. His favourite film is The Lion King. Magic Kingdom is also his favourite park with PhilharMagic being his favourite attraction.

Right, thats enough of the introductions, if you fancy reading our PTR you can do so here, but be warned its alot of pages :scared1: Doin' it in Style @ The Poly

I'm here, Stefy, and can't wait to read all about it and see all of your pictures.

Guess we'd better get this party started then.

Arrival Day - Wednesday September 29th
The day had finally come, after months of planning and posting on the Disboards we were finally on our way to Walt Disney World.

My dad had kindly offered to take us to the airport, which was fab, saved on the cab fare :teeth: Our plane didn't take off until 1pm, but we left around 8am so we could get there bright and early and get the bit and pieces we generally tend to get before flying.

Our first stop was Pret-a-Manger for one of these babies

Latte's, which are now my new favourite beverage, next to peppermint hot chocolates from Starbucks :teeth:

I remember me and Dave sat there discussing all things Disney and also trying to work out who else in the airport might be going to Florida.

After all the shopping was done and our gate opened up, we made our way over to the gate. Now this is something we don't normally see when we get to our gate as we usually have to wait in a long line and then get searched when we get to the front.

So there we sat waiting, until it was time to board. Once on board we received our complimentary drinks. Dave had champers, whilst I went for an apple juice.

Not bad legroom for Premium, so worth the extra money.

I'm stretched out to my fullest there.

We had a little hiccup before take off, but nothing too major. There were some seats down in Economy that appeared to be broken and the just as the pilot was leaving the dock he got the call and announced over the tannoy that we would have to redock and see if an engineer could fix or if we would have to leave the plane. Thankfully, the engineer fixed it and we were off on our merry way.

I don't think I watched any movies on this trip, apart from Eclipse, but they had a good selection such as Princess and the Frog, Toy Story 3 etc

We checked out our menu selection which was pretty good.

I went for the braised beef and mash, whilst Dave went for the chicken tikka

Dave of course had to have another beer.

Yay we're nearly there :teeth:

All in all not a bad flight, apart from the flatulent food intolerant man in front of me who did not stop farting!!! It was sooooooooooo disgusting I wanted to shove a cork up his bum and tell him to go to the bathroom as it smelt like he needed to do a No. 2 :sick:

Next up our Magical Express Transportation

Yay, thanks for coming over :teeth: Ignore my comment to yours on your PTR, I wasn't getting notifications for some reason :confused3

KatMark 10-31-2010 03:38 PM

Nice start, Stefy. How nice that you get a menu on your flight and can choose your food. That is just :sick::sick::sick: about the guy sitting in front of you. I don't think I could have stood that without saying something. :eek:

Thanks for stopping by :goodvibes:

The food was pretty good and dessert was a blackcurrant mousse which was nice, but a bit dry on the throat after a while. Most long haul flights from the UK get to choose from a menu, esp the prices we pay too.

Oh man he was so disgusting, I wish we had said something, but I think after a while his wife noticed how sick and green I looked (luckily I had my scarf to cover my face with) that she must have said something as towards the end of the flight it wasn't to bad.
