Trip Report 1/2-1/10. Reviews & Critiques Pg 4 #57 *New*

Hi all!!! This is my first TR and I figured why not try to do it on each day of my trip. We decided to go with BC being walking distances from EP & HS. So I will start with introducing my family.


Me! Kenny, I'm 31 from Rochester NY. Navy Veteran and waiting to get in the reserves. My daughter Harper who will be 11 months on Jan 1st.


My wife, Cristina 31. She is the amazing person who keeps tracks of our three kids all day. A wonderful stay at home mother!

My daughter Emma. She will be visiting DW for the 2nd time. She will be 4 on 2/24 who shares a birthday with Cristina.


My son Nolan. Who is 2 with a birthday on 8/19.


We leave to drive to Buffalo about 4am on Jan 2nd. Flights cheaper and we get in at 1030. Flying SW for the first time.

I will try to answer questions and keep my updates coming everyday!

Have a wonderful trip! You're at the airport bright and early that's for sure!

I looked at that last picture and thought "Hey.. those toys look familiar". Yep.. we fly out of Buffalo too. Glad you were able to breeze through security. It can sometimes be a long wait for the first flights of the day. Even worse during the holidays I imagine.

Enjoy the Beach Club and we're all looking forward to seeing more live updates!

Epcot day

We got to our room and was happy to get a full balcony!




The view wasn't the best but we soon noticed that we could see the fireworks at night over the trees!



A second floor room with no one our left side.

We headed to see princesses at Epcot which was only a 10 min walk



We headed to our reservations at Garden Grille which was family style. We had a great meal and the characters were awesome!

We rode a few rides nemo, living with the land

We had an issue with our SLR camera which wouldn't take anymore than 64 pics. We had to buy another memory card at the BC marketplace. EP didn't have not one SD card. Very frustrating! BBB in the morning for Emma! Kids got really sleppy today lol!


I enjoyed an walk around boardwalk a had a beer at ESPN.

Off too bed!

DTD and MK

We did breakfast at the our hotel at the marketplace. Had some quick food (muffin, cin roll, eggs and bacon). Took off to DTD to do BBB for older DD. we ended up taking a taxi since we just missed the bus. Of course ANOTHER bus came as soon as we called for a taxi. The wife took her and I took the two others around DTD. Nolan got to open Once Upon a Toy. He turned on the train inside! He loved it!! The great CM gave him a special toy, pin, and tons of stickers. He rode the train after by himself (no parent for the 1st time). DW was with Emma for the BBB. Her fairy god mother in training was fantastic telling Emma that the gel was jelly Fish gel and that Ariel brings it in every morning and that Snow White brings the Gems in from the mine which are transformed into the face gems. She was just perfect!! Emma was beyond delighted with her makeover and was called a princess throughout the entire day. She wore Her belle dress that we brought from Home and I let her get a belle charm necklace as well. We headed to MK but decided to take the bus to Wilderness Lodge via boat ride. Great looking resort and the boat was waiting for us went to check the line for Be Our Guest but it was almost a 2 hour wait. No thanks!! Headed to Pinocchio Hous for our quick dinning instead and it only took about 15 mins. I got a meatball sub and fries, kids meal was mac & cheese, fries & grapes, DW got chicken Cesar salad and we got the chocolate cake (yum!). Lots of food! CMs were great and helpful.
