I've arrived!

I guess I better keep this baby moving, seeing how I was the first to arrive!

As with most of my trips Iím actually going to start off the night before! DH and I have been to WDW without the kids twice over the past few years. Once in March of 2009 and again October of 2010! But this was the first time that Iíve been alone and only the second time in my 12 years of marriage and 10 years of motherhood that Iíve been away without any members of my family! The first time was only for 1 night!!!

I was worried how my kids were going to react! They knew where I was going and what I was doing! There were tears! Quite a few, in fact! But, in the end it wasnít as bad as I thought and I was actually able to get some sleep and get to bed at a decent time!

Good thing! My alarm clock went off way to early at 2:45 am! UGH! But, with a car service picking me up at 4 am it was necessary!

My worst fear was that the kids would wake up and Iíd never be able to get out the door! Luckily, that didnít happen! Even with my puppy Pluto freaking out when the driver knocked on my door at 4 am!

So, I was off to the airport at 4 am, for my 6:15 am flight, on a cold, drizzly morning!

Upon arriving at the airport a little past 4:30, I found our small, local airport nearly dead! Other then a family in front of me that seemed to include at least 10 people, 3 strollers and 45 pieces of luggage and an older couple behind me with 2 giant boxes full of Entenmanns baked goods they only other people were airport employees!

With my bags checked and everything in place I was off to security! I put my things in the bins and took my shoes off and I headed through the metal detector!


One problem! I set the stupid thing off!!! I went back, made sure I had nothing in my one pocket, took off all my jewelry and went back through!

I set the darn thing off again!!! REALLY?!

So, at 4:30 am I was in the airport getting patted up and down! Great way to start the day!!! I passed the pat down and the TSA lady who did it said it was probably the metal in my bra!!!

Really?! I'm not the first women to wear an underwire bra to the airport and I'm not going to be the last! Why did I set the stupid thing off? I've worn an underwire to the airport before! I've never set the stupid thing off before!! UGH!

Once cleared I was off to the gate!

The wait and the flight were uneventful! I slept for most of the flight and woke up around the time we started our decent!

With that my flight landed slightly ahead of schedule at 8:45 am and I was off to get my luggage and locate my Happy Limo driver!

Soon enough I found myself arriving at Boardwalk and checking in!!!

By some stroke of Disney Magic and luck my room was ready at 9:30 am!!! Woo hoo!!!

So, I had bell services take my luggage to my room and got settled for my one night stay in a fabulous room!






I loved this room! Loved, loved, LOVED it! I also loved this balcony!!!! It was HUGE!! I could have had a party out there!





The view was to die for!





I contemplated taking a nap! But I was afraid that I would sleep away the day and not be able to sleep that night! So I set off!

The lights near my room



First to the lobby for some pictures...











Next to the Boardwalk Bakery for a muffin and a soda! It was hot that day! Too hot for hot coffee!

Then I was off to Epcot via the fabulous back entrance! I must say, Iíve heard tales of this back entrance! Iíve heard of itís fabulousness! I had certain expectations of it!

It lived up to everything and MORE! It loved it!! How fabulous is it to have Epcot right at your doorstep!? WOW!

I entered Epcot shortly after 10 am. Of course, WS wasnít open yet. So I headed toward the front of the park!

Some beautiful topiaries along the way,









First sighting on SSE



Lightening McQueen Topiary,



Pooh and Friends!







My favorite fountain while I was played with shutter speed on my camera...



There seemed a lot of people in Future World! I believe it was morning EMH!

So I kind of wondered Future World a bit! I tried SSE but the wait was something like a 30 or 35 minute wait!

So admired the beauty of Epcot and when it was nearing 11 I headed into WS via Mexico!

I took a break from the ever increasing heat inside the pavilion! I looked around and window shopped a bit and then took my first ride! LOL!!











Interesting choice as a first ride, I know!

After my ride I had hoped that the Ditch would be open! Alas, it wasnít meant to be! So I headed out



and decided to get a frozen margarita at the stand!

While it was yummy, it made the already hot day that much hotter to me!

I made it to the Outpost and found a nice shady table to sit at for a bit! I sent my fabulous dis friends a drink picture!



After drinking a good amount of the strawberry rita I moved on! But it was so hot I had a hard time enjoying it! I kind of went from shade to shade! Iíve always said Iím not a hot weather person, this trip proved it! This day in particular!

Somehow I made it back to the International Gateway and took a nice little rest on a shady bench with a nice breezy! No longer feeling like I was melting I headed toward BWV!

I'm going to break now and go watch my Samantha Brown DVC webcast thing!! I'll be back soon with more!

Don't you just love the Epcot resorts? We get so spoiled with that private entry!!!

I think your balcony was superb! Did you have a boardwalk view?

So excited for October!!!

Hi Mek! So glad I found your report! We were at the Poly from May 1-5. Still thinking about perhaps doing a quick TR for that one.

We too have pictures of those awful love bugs. We were absoutely horified by the mess of the front end of the car. It sounded like it was raining on the drive from Naples to WDW....but it was bugs....thousands of them hitting the windshield. Blech!

Looking forward to reading your report!

Carol

I loved the relaxed atmosphere of this trip and I loved that I had the chance to try new restaurants!! I stayed at POR for the trip and my love for that resort was solidified. I did get a mansion room but I think the CM realized that at midnight there was going to be a scene if she didn't give me one and appeased me LOL

I do believe that your love affair with WS will continue as we will have such nice access on our next trip...
I only wish you were going to be with us for more of our Beach Club nights, I really think I would have a new favorite for you...

Excellent pictures! We're staying at the BC this summer and I'm so excited. I cannot believe we're going to be THAT close to EPCOT.

I know that lady was quite upset that her security video went viral, but what the heck did she think would happen? All in all a good sport and a lesson to all of us who walk and text!

That's how Denny is. He can't go more than once a year.

F&W and May 2012 - sounds like an AP is in order!

Good for you girl! I always say (hope my precious dd isn't reading this) I hope to one day go to WDW without kids, just to see what it is like and mine are much older than yours. I bet you had the most relaxing 'different' kind of time! Can't wait to read more!! And MEK love the pictures!! Keep them coming
Isn't is lovely? and YES, prom dresses have come a real long way. Imagine my son calling that dress "plain". WHAT?

Melissa's family called a lot. The age of technology is great, but I think it can make mom a little too accessible!

Great pics of POR! I'm very intrigued to stay there!
Good thing, huh? If I had sat there any longer I would have been taking pictures of spider webs and bugs and other creepy stuff. It was just strange to go that long with no one around. Weird.

POR is very, very pretty. It's definitely a good choice if you are going to stay mod.

So are YOU thinking F&W 2012? I think it could turn into a major DIS event!!!!!

How are those adorable girls of yours?

You know - Brian had known her for so long that I don't think he sees how gorgeous she really is. I guess they have more of a brother/sister relationship. I'm sure she must be breaking someone's heart by leaving.

I think its the perfect resort - its pretty, its well landscaped, the buildings have ton of variety, there is great Saturday night entertainment -yeehaw Bob, and there is a boat that goes to DTD. What could be better?

Thanks and thanks! Being at the bus stop alone was totally weird. I mean, how often are you alone, even for a few seconds, at Disneyworld? Almost never.

Isn't the cave great? Yum!!!!!!

I agree. He is adorable. Its the perfect communion picture. I always enjoy seeing the boys since the girls tend to get all the attention with their frilling, pretty dresses.

More Interest for F&W 2012! WOOT! It would be so fun to get a whole gang of people there and do a few BIG dis meets. I have always wanted to do a big DIS meet on ToT where DISers fill up the whole car.

I have to agree with you that a few days at BC might render Jen a new fav! 5 nights might have had that affect on me

Awesome update Melissa! 2:45am alarm. Ouch!

I still can't believe your bra set off the metal detector. That is crazy!

Your BWV view is really amazing and the balcony is so much bigger than the BCV studio balcony. I also like the tiling in the kitchenette.

Lovely pictures!!!!!

Wigd! Almost time for you to leave again for the world on your mega trip!

I personally loved staying in the Epcot area. It was great!

I got a card to do an online survey for BCV. I thought the customer service was superb!

You are going to LOVE the BC. Excellent location. Pretty resort and fabulous customer service. I hope you love it!

And - Yes - you will be that close to Epcot! It will make you giddy!

MickeysMyBoy - You are not the first to have issues with the underwire in the bra....super embarassing moment at LAX...

MEK - I was driving across town tonight and it was during rush hour so I decided to go a different route. I never go over to that side of town but did tonight to meet friends....anyhoo, I'm driving along and in a little plaza to my left was a gigantic sign announcing "MEK HAS ARRIVED! DENTAL OFFICE NOW OPEN!" I tried to grab a picture for you on my phone but it just looks like a rainy, grey & fluorescent blur.

I'm here, but I still have to read!! I will as soon as I possibly can....life has been particularly rude for the past 2 months and destroying my DIS time. I cannot wait to hear about this adventure!!!

The Beach Club really isn't all that great. Stormalong Bay is overrated. And Beaches 'n Cream- you can get a burger anywhere. And walk to EPCOT? Who wants to walk on vacation? There are plenty of better places to stay!!!


OK. Not really. I adore Beach Club. But I don't need any more competition to find a room there and don't want it too crowded!!! Luckily BCV is my home DVC resort so I have the "11 month" advantage. I do seriously think the Villa rooms need a refurb. I like the BWV rooms much better. And for standard view the points are "cheaper."

Ladies - how did we pick BC in the first place? Did I twist your arms?
