OMG MOM...is that Paris?? Our girls trip to Disney 9/17 PHOTOPASS PICS

Yes...FINALLY!! I have a title for my TR. Now, that means I can start it!! Woo hoo!!!

If you are new here, let me introduce myself!

Hi! This is me and my oldest daughter! My name is Heather and I loooovvvveeee Disney! I am lucky in that I have a husband who loves it almost as much as I do. I have a 7 year old sassy-lassy daughter and a 18 month old daughter who stayed home with daddy on this trip!

Oh wait, let me back up! This trip came about after my mom decided she wanted to head down to Disney for a girls trip! So, the trip includes me, DD Hollie, my mom, my sister, and my niece.

Here is a picture of my sweet mom, my dad, Hollie, and my youngest daughter, Hannah on her 1st birthday.

Here is a picture of my sister and niece.

The specifics!

We were in Disney from October 6th through the 11th. (Yay, we were there on my birthday the 8th)
We stayed at Pop Century..love that place!

This was an alright trip, not the best but definitely not the worst (heh...you should read past ones! lol) The weather was probably the worst I have ever seen it in Disney. Lots and lots of rain. Boo! But, all in all it was a good trip!

I will be back to get this trip started!!

Heather! I haven't seen you around the boards lately and I'm so happy to see you're starting a TR. I recall from one of your PTR's that you were doing an all girls trip, how fun! Looking forward to reading this. Oh, and that's a fabulous picture of you and sweet Hollie together too.

I'm here! So sorry you guys had bad weather. I remember rain was the reason we couldn't meet you guys at DTD when we were leaving on your first day. Not to rub it in but I think that's like the only rain we had the entire trip. Crazy! Can't wait to read all about it.

Sounds like a fun trip with all the girls! Bummer about all the rain-we got a lot on our trip in March and it puts a damper on everything (literally!). But, I am still jealous you got to go for your birthday.

Well, I think its about time I started this TR!! What about your guys??

My sister and I were planning on leaving around 2 or 3 am, but my mom planned for us to leave around 7 am that Thursday morning. I told her that if we were planning on going to the luau that night, we really needed to leave earlier so we could get checked in and rest a little. So....she took my advice and we were gonna get on the road at 4 am and NO EARLIER. Notice I said gonna!
I actually got up that morning and did my normal I-am-gonna-be-riding-a-good-ways routine which consisted of getting a bath and then packing up stuff I couldn't pack yet. Chad got Hollie up and in my car while I went and snuggled up with Hannah. Hollie and I were on the road around 3:30 am. My parents don't live very far from us so we got there around 3:40.
We had brought over all our big luggage the night before so all I really had to pack was my camera, purse, and Hollie's back pack.
In case your wondering, I had already packed up my makeup lol

We visited with my dad for a couple of minutes and then we were on the road!

I took this picture as we were coming close to Atlanta

This is actually where the trip name came into play. Hollie and Shelby were wide awake, and I mean awake!! As we were going past Atlanta, Hollie said..."OH MY GOSH!!!! Is that Paris???" I informed her that no, it was not Paris. She then said, "Well, is it Hollywood??? Um....no! Its Atlanta!!! She loves the Barbie movies and the new one she has just happens to take place in Paris. ha ha My silly girl!

We stopped for breakfast at IHOP and Hollie and Shelby thought it was really cool that the waitress brought them out this pancake!

We eventually made it to the Florida state line!! Yay!!!!

I took the girls to the restroom and to get some OJ. I have to admit, this next set of pictures are funny! In the age where we have cell phones, Hollie and Shelby thought these "phones that are outside with a blue cover over them" are really cool lol

We got back on the road and really had no problems at all on the drive down! My sister started out driving and then about a couple of hours later got tired so I switched with her and drove the rest of the way!

We saw this pretty soon!

Followed by this!!

Now, I had thrown my sister my camera and instructed her to start taking pictures of the sign. She gave me the strangest look!! haha

We finally made it!!

I pulled up to the front so we could go and check in. I told my sister to stay with the girls and I would go in and get the check in started! I snapped this of the sweet girls! They were already having a ball!

My mom and I went to check us in. We had asked for the 50's Lady building, (oh how I love it!) and also to have adjoining rooms. Well, there seemed to be a mix up. They said they could put is in rooms close together but we really needed an adjoining room. The guy checking us in looked through the computer and finally after we stood there about 10 minutes and he made several phone calls, we were put in the 70's Mickey Phone building directly facing mirror lake. It was a pretty good walk from the parking area to our room. I don't think I have ever parked that far in all the years we have stayed at Disney. It didn't bother me, I love to walk!! So we finally got to our rooms and believe it or not. I didn't take one picture as soon as we walked in. We wanted to get in, get unpacked and get ready for the luau. So my sister, Hollie, and my niece all got one room while my mom got the other. I unpacked all my stuff and then started on Hollie's. I ended up putting some of her stuff in my moms room because we knew they would end up in there at some point.

We finally got ready for the luau and off we went! We took these pictures walking to the car:

Luau, coming up next!!
