The DisneyGuy Clan Hits The World (and the beach later on)for a trip of celebrations!
Greetings fellow Disneyians.

This will be my first true trip report. I did one for our 2007 trip, but it was more of a live report, and I'd like this one to have more to it.

Of course I'll get the introductions underway.

Fisrt up is DS13. He's going into 8th grade this year, and had to take a summer school class this year...though he missed three days worth.

Here is DS7. He's a clone of his grandfather. Loves tractors, and working on the farm with Granpa.

And here we have DS2(ish). He's quite the little man. Always moving, Always into something. Did I mention he was always moving?
See...always moving...

DW. She just graduated from college this year, so we're kinda celebrating that as well as other things.
Hey look...DS2 is still...

And me. I've been to the World about eight times. The last time was in 2007. The times before were with my mother (who is as big of a Disney fan as I am), and once with my mother and father, where we stayed off site, and I don't remember much from the trip at all. I'm Irish. I like beer...a lot.

Our trip was from August 10 - 16, and then a few days at St. Pete beach afterwards to see some family. We stayed at the Art of Animation suites in the Cars section. Our last trip we had stayed in a regular All Star Sports room, but upgraded to a suite at Music. After that, I vowed to never stay in anything less than a Family Suite.

More coming....

Our day started about about 7am. We ate, and got ready to leave. We had the car packed the night before, so it was just a matter of getting everyone in it to go. We were flying out of our local airport (Plattsburgh, NY) so it was only a short drive. We were out of the house by 8am, and when we got to the airport, they weren't open. The doors were open and all, but security was closed and there was no one at the check in desk.

We waited in line behind some people from Canada, and at 9am, they started checking people through. When we got to the counter, we thought we would not be able to use the car seat on the plane for DS2. After a small conversation, we were allowed through with it. We did have to check DS7's booster seat though, but that wasn't a big deal. We made our way to the gate and sat.

Our flight wasn't scheduled to take off until 11am. We waited, and waited, and pottied, and waited and played some games, and waited. Finally it was time! We found our seats and finangled the car seat into place. Got everyone into place and were ready for take off. I was sitting between DS13 and DS7 (who had the window) and DW was sitting with DS2.
DS7 boned up on the safety procedures of the plane...just in case.

We had an entire row on the plane, so that was nice. I read. DSs played games. DW sat and tried to keep DS2 quiet. He got loud a few times, but over all was pretty good on the entire flight.

Finally, it was time to land.

I'm going to hold up here for now.
