Mom/Daughter Birthday Celebration: Lots of Firsts and Laughs! (Update 3-18-13)

Join me for another one of our Mom/Daughter trips to WDW! We had some rainy days, but tons of fun! Here's the quick who, what, when, where, and how did we get there?



Who: Mom, who loves everything Disney.
Daughter, who also loves Disney, celebrates her 17th birthday on this trip!

What: Another Disney vacation, just the two of us!

When: June 13-21

Where: Split stay at Best Western LBV & Disney's Saratoga Springs

How did we get there? We flew Allegiant Airlines this time. I always have either drove by myself, or took the Amtrak. I have to say I love arriving in Fl. in 55 minutes vs. 10 hours!!!



Here we are having her an early birthday get-together before we left:



Hope you all join me while I share our memories, along with lots of reviews!!

I'll ready for another TR!!!

And I gotta tell you that my DD went on vacation last week with a friend and there was a Disney Outlet store in the town they went to...

I know... Who knew???

Anyway, she bought me a Disneyland sweatshirt and a Mickey bag to carry all my work papers to/from work... She's the BEST!!!

And the Disney outlet is only 3.5 hours away... I'm thinking ROADTRIP!!!

How neat! We always have to make it a road trip on our Disney store shopping visits! There's 2 malls in the Atlanta area that have Disney Stores, so we always go to both, especially since we have to drive almost 2 hours to get there!

Glad you joined me on another one of my TR!

I'm glad that you had a safe flight down--I loved seeing all the pics! I think I would have a little scared if the lightening was flashing!!! That makes me nervous on the ground, much less in a plane! I'm glad that the airports were easy to navigate.

Glad you're here!

It's a smaller size airport and I was glad it was pretty easy to navigate around. Did you find a good price?

It would have to be a very good deal for me to fly from there.

Sorry, ff topic:


To the OP - I am enjoying your trip report and photos. It's getting me excited for my December trip with my daughter....... leaving the boys at home.
Welcome to my TR! I LOVE our mom/daughter trips together.
I didn't have any problems with Sanford airport and didn't mind the extra hour driving time. It's better than the 10 hours I usually have to drive! Or all the hours on the Amtrak!

I know people say Sanford is too far away. but we never have made it from MCO any faster than we do from sanford, so it's not bad at all.
Yes, that was a long walk! And I agree, I didn't think the distance to WDW was bad at all from there.

We live about 40 miles from GSP, and only about 20 miles from the GA border, so we're not far to Augusta. So yeah, we're neighbors!

For those that have read some of my TR's or PTR's, know that I usually add in some "daily happenings" here & there, especially if it has anything to do with Disney. And to get in a little Disney fix, I'm so excited to say that in 5 days, we're going to see ..............................................

I am so excited. I have always wanted to see this, but would probably not ever get the chance to go to NYC, where they have the show. So when I heard it was coming to our area, I HAD to get tickets ASAP!

Sunday, June 17



Another day at MK!!










First stop, Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor, with a 10 minute wait:









Then to Space Mountain, with a 20 minute wait:





Snack time!!





As we finished our ice creams, we headed over for pics with Chip & Dale:



More Fantasyland construction pics:








We made our way over to PhilharMagic! (15 minute wait)




After that, we got fastpasses for the Pooh ride, and was surprised, by these "Surprise Fastpasses", that came out after the Pooh ones!!
(Have ya'll heard of those? This was new to me)




They were for PhilharMagic, but we had just finished that! So we didn't use them.

A little bit later, we went on Haunted Mansion, with a 15 minute wait:










More MK coming up!
