Yes, this trip is the trip we took to make up for our trip to Disneyland in March. We said it didn't count because we found it too cold! We loved Disneyland, and California, the people, the hotel, everything. We just were bad Canadians who didn't like the cold!


If you haven’t read my other trip reports, you’re welcome to do so to learn a little more about me and my sister and our friend. We go by the Golden Girls and call ourselves Blanche, Rose and Dorothy. In real life, we alternate by our attitudes/behaviors, but for the trip reports, I am always Dorothy, Rose is always my sister (who didn’t get to come on the last two trips!) and Rose’s sister in law is always Blanche.

I am Dorothy, long time, big time Disney fan and I’m currently a French Immersion kindergarten teacher. Between pre-service teaching, full time classrooms and short term contracts, I’ve taught every grade between K-12 (French Immersion or Core French) except for grades one and six, although I’ve covered both for a sub day here or there). I love taking pictures, traveling, reading, (and more) and I come from a huge family. I have 9 siblings and 16 nieces and nephews so far. I really wish the tag fairy would find me with something fun.

This is me in at Disneyland in March 2012. (The trip that we need to make up for the cold, right?)


Untitled by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

This is Blanche. She’s the oldest of the three of us (only two for this trip). She is a paediatric nurse and also has nine siblings. I’m sure she has tons of nieces and nephews, but I don’t know the exact number. We share 2 nieces and 2 nephews though. She loves to travel and to read, but she doesn’t take pictures. Unfortunately, about 2 years ago, she hurt her hip and it still hasn’t healed, so she can’t do as many rides as she’d like. About 2 weeks before the trip, she broke her foot. Yep. Disney with a sore hip, and then a broken foot. Sore right hip. Broken left foot. Think about it! But we still went, with plans for many breaks. We went to Disneyland in March (trip report is in my signature), but we found it really, really cold. So we said that the trip could not count! We like hot weather… We loved Disneyland, but we were freezing most of the time. (We can get that here! We don’t need it on vacation in March).

Here we both are, to show you just how cold it was:

You can read my TR if you want to read about the cold, but amazing trip, here is the link. I want to go back to DL, but I will do that in the summer, thank you very much!!!

On the way!

July 18, Part 1: On the way!

I always start my other trip reports writing really fun, but then slow down in the end and just post pictures. So this time, I’ll just start with a back story and mostly pictures and we’ll see what happens!

As is tradition, my nephew, who is now 17, but was 12 when I took him to Disney, spent the night at my place and came with us to the airport. Rose drove Dorothy to my house to pick us up, and we were at the airport. We went to the washroom before security and I met a Diser! She noticed my sweater, or my t-shirt, or my watch, or my earrings, or my ring, or my shoes! Hahaha. I can’t remember. I wrote down her Disname, but I can’t find where I wrote it! It was soos (and some numbers) or suze (and some numbers). So if you’re reading, it was lovely to meet you!

We went through security and Blanche had a Rose moment and realized she forgot her sunglasses in her car. The real Rose and my nephew had already gone, so she called them, and they would come back. I told one of the security people what happened when I saw my sister and they said to let her just put the glasses on the belt and I would pick them up on the other side. No need to go through security again! Small PEI airport has definite benefits! (besides being about 3 minutes from home!)


Oops! by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

So we really had an uneventful flight. I think we were a little delayed, because we were not the only ones worried about our connection. Blanche got a wheelchair and held my carryon bag on her lap, (I packed light and had a little tote as a carryon) and I kept my slingback camera bag on my back, pushed the wheelchair and rolled her carryon too. Thank goodness we were flying through Montreal and we didn’t need to get our checked bags. We had met a couple from PEI that were on the same flight, and they sped off ahead of us, but we somehow made it through customs before them. The gentleman ended up sitting beside me on the flight. We were talking about his job (fisheries and environment) and then somehow we ended up talking faith and that both Blanche and I were single… Not sure how that all happened, but he was friendly. He offered to pray for us that we’ll find our matches and said that sometimes it takes as little as three hours. The whole trip long we kept saying “our three hours have past!” I’m not belittling his Faith or anything else, I actually thought it was sweet that he was going to pray for us. It was the time frame that got us giggling. So we chatted through parts of the flight, I made Blanche watch the first episode of Once Upon a Time, and I watched the first two (again!).

Before we knew it, we saw this sign:


Magical Express 1 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I don’t think we waited 5 minutes to get on our bus, in fact, I think we just walked right on from the time we entered the line. We were also the first stop off the bus, and we were at our resort and checked in within an hour and 15 minutes of landing.

I love getting “real” DME buses!


DME 2 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

See Blanche’s boot? It was not easy for her to climb the stairs.


Broken foot by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DME 3 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I really have to buy me some Mickey hands next time!


Mickey hand by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Our driver, telling us which hotels were our drop off points.

*sigh* Palm trees.

Blanche was probably sore. I was extremely happy, and I can’t help but show it!


Happy to be in FL! by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DME 4 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Getting closer! (One day I’ll be able to get an awesome shot of this without the big line in the middle and the windshield wipers!)


Yay! by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Yay! 2 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Sorry… I photoshopped the bug guts out in the other ones, but these next few it was right in the way…


Yay! 3 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

And I know that is a lot of pictures for the sign, but we all know how much we love to see this sign! (If you don’t, you’re on the wrong discussion board and you may as well stop reading my Trip Report Right away because you’ll be seeing a lot of pictures you won’t like if this sign doesn’t make you happy!)


Yay! 4 (ew bug) by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Almost there! by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Port Orleans Riverside 1 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Someone on here once mentioned how much they loved the moss at POR because it made them feel like they were there in FL, so I took a picture for them.

Port Orleans Riverside

Part 2: Port Orleans Riverside

Our room was ready!

We were in a water view room in Acadian House, on the ground floor. Room 8071, which is ground floor, with a pool within hearing distance, but you can’t see it because of the shrubbery. No biggie though, that wasn’t too important, the ground floor and being in Magnolia Bend was the most important to us.

The walk to our room:

POR 4 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


POR 5 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Room 1 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

It took less than 8 minutes to walk to our room. (And find it. I think we went the long way around the first time, walking slowly and taking pictures too, right?) So I snapped some pictures as we dropped off our things. We then went to grab a bite to eat as we were hungry.

The couple ahead of us was really sweet. They had asked us questions about how many times we’d been here and what to do and things like that. It turns out that she used to be a cast member (she said a LONG time ago when she was a student or something) at Disneyland! I liked them! I think they got off at POFQ.

I love the pictures of the rocks, and the ropes and such. Those are the photos that I take for my phone back grounds and such. I really enjoy them.

Toy Story Midway Mania had too long of a wait for my liking. They really need single rider lines for it!

So instead, it was Star Tours!


DHS 64 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

The wait said about 10 minutes, but it was less than that for sure.


DHS 65 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I loved what the sign said when I got off! I should have gone on again!


DHS 68 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I decided I was too tired to wait for the second Fantasmic, so I headed out to the bus area. I had gone over at some point earlier, a few minutes before the first showing of Fantasmic, just to see if I could get a seat, and I started walking up the pathway. When they started announcing it was “Standing room only” I turned around. I was not about to stand. I was too tired! I heard them say they were full to capacity before I totally left the area anyways.


DHS 69 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DHS 70 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I’m sure I didn’t wait long for a bus and got back to the hotel in good time.

Part 7: The wait is on and some DHS wanderings

The plan was for Blanche to meet up with me at a certain time and we’d go for supper somewhere, so I started taking pictures of menus so we’d know where to go!


DHS 89 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DHS 90 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I need to spend more time watching the Streetmosphere cast members. I really do. The few times I’ve stopped and watched them or interacted with them, they’ve been absolutely hilarious.

I got a video, but it wasn’t of the funniest parts. I should have thought earlier…

Video link

This is my first ever video post on the Dis! Yay! Only I can't figure out how to do it right... LOL And yay for my Canon 60D that takes great pictures and video. It’s better directly on the computer than on flickr, but that’s okay, you’ll get the idea. And sorry about the snap of the picture in the middle of the video, I was trying to figure out if it was actually recording!

I decided to wait for Blanche near the entrance to the park. I sat on a bench on a side street for a bit, but then there was a big monster of a stinging insect nearby so I moved over closer to the entrance. I sat and leaned on a palm tree for a bit and then beside it when it started hurting my back and letting crawling insects all over me.

Blanche and I had both purchased an expensive, but useful long distance package on our cell phones that included texting, especially for moments like this, when we were trying to meet up at the parks!

Part 8: We see OURSELVES!

Remember how we call ourselves the Golden Girls? Well… here is Blanche and Rose!


DHS 113 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

And Blanche and Dorothy.


DHS 114 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

And here is Dorothy (me) with Dorothy! So of course, I’m doing something silly! Don’t you love my shoes though? They’re so comfy!!!


DHS 115 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

And here I am with Rose… Rose is my sister and she is a pain, always looking for something. I love her, and she’s one of the GGs, but I want to strangle her sometimes (not really!), so here I am!

We still hadn’t decided where to eat, so we wandered around looking at things and looking at restaurant menus.

It’s a library!!!

See the hidden Once Upon a Time ad? Okay, so it’s not hidden, it’s just small with the wide angle.

Blanche is in prison! I had to bail her out…


DHS 133 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Unfortunately, I forgot the cash, so I tried to break her out and got stuck in jail instead!

Part 9: Supper!

We decided on Backlot Express. I ate there with my nephew in 2007, so I try to eat there at least once a trip in memory of eating there with him. I wonder if we’ll eat there again when we go again?

We decided to share a sandwich. We got the grilled turkey and cheese. I think I bought my own dessert and drink and we shared the sandwich, she got the drink and the dessert on one meal credit.


DHS 139 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

We were happy for the carrots for once and a healthy sandwich, and we both loved our desserts. I was a good girl and got water to drink. It was a lovely meal.

We stayed in the unfinished area. I loved it. Here are some pictures of the room.
