June 16 Headed to WDW!

It was easy to get up and finish the last few things before we pulled out in our minivan. We only had a stroller and 4 bags since we were not checking luggage. The rest was coming with my parents the next day. We had our bag ready to get on our suits and be at the Big Dig Site early afternoon.

My father in law jumped in and took us to the airport... which saved time and energy. We were supposed to depart at 11, but upon arriving at the airport... a twenty minute delay! Security was easy, I felt terrible about the large amounts of Luke food and formula I had brought with me, but I did not want to be without! They did take out every item but did not hassle me in regards to the Gerber Graduates, formula and snacks I had for him. In fact I took some juice boxes and water bottles through in Orlando on the way home to make the bottle making easier.

No worries, it actually allowed us to order some lunch and feed the kids some before we boarded. Luke and I sat on the single seat, the girls and DH on the other side. Pretty uneventful except for we were by the wing so it was louder--- hard for the girls to watch a movie and I had to change a poopy diaper on the plane-- yes they have changing tables! Hannah had some ear issues as we started to land. I did take Clorox wipes to wipe down everything... I did not want sick kids! Luke fell asleep in the aisle with a tad bit of a rock on my part, but he really did not make a peep... much better than the flight home

We arrived about 1:20, visited the ladies room and walked straight down to board the ME buses. We did not have to check in at the counter since we had our paperwork (this was new to us). We walked straight onto a bus and got no more than seated and we were off! YEAH!





Our first stop was Pop Century... I thought of you all MeMom- less than one month! It was busy there and we dropped off a few, and I also changed another stinky diaper (Luke is not a man who likes dirty pants) and ran it the trash at our next stop, Carribean Beach!

Finally it was our stop, Coronado Springs! I had not done online checkin since I was praying that we would not change rooms, get the 8A building we wanted and have adjoining rooms with my parents. DH sent me and the girls colored.

I snapped one picture before I reached the CM...


The CM looked at my ID and pulled our reservation... and then said the magical words-
  • I think we have a special deal for you!

I made DH change Ty's dirty diaper on the plane in Dec...he isn't a small guy either! I'm evil..I know. He couldn't believe there was room for changing tables in there!

So do you just call down and tell you them that you need a crib or do you request ahead of time? We will have 17 month old with us in December. I know the pack-n-play will be a no go for her too.

It was incredibly hot when we were there, and I think it was much hotter than it normally is this time of year. There were a couple of times that we were just absolutely miserable from the heat.
We had horrid storms last night, lightening and rain... wild weather. Plus I was WAY behind on the DIS!

It was hot, way hotter than any trip I could remember. I figure it can't ever be hotter, and I plan to never take an infant again (or at least one that is mine)

I know what you are saying about the Pack'n'Play. Last month when we went to Hershey, B. was not a fan. He was also not a fan of sleeping past 5 am or taking afternoon naps. Good thing we were having fun or all of us would have been bears.
Luke had the best nap a long one in his crib this morning. I am sure he is so happy to be free again!

I am down to probably two loads of laundry. Two laundry baskets of junk... and other misc stuff!

Our tour was not until Wednesday (yes three days ago).... so I could let you all wait....

Nope.... late late in the trip, maybe I will just wait until I get there

Your baby will come first probably!

I have a friend trying out the treehouses next late May/June. A good deal for the size!

I would say in the next few days... I am not good at secrets!

I'm glad you guys all survived and hopefully had a great time in spite of the heat!

If we had been anywhere but Disney I would have hated it, but how can you not be happy at Disney. We did have a clip on fan for Luke in the stroller. It helped, does Jill have one for Bella?

Photobucket will have to cooperate. I will reveal soon, probably without an update if you all can figure it out via a picture!

It was truly a magical moment when he said that to me... lump in throat excitment!

Kathy
I thought of you when I wrote it... cliffhanger and all. (actually while it was happening I thought it would be a great moment for stopping the report)

I actually called Disney to have them make a note of it on my reservation. I imagine it's a sure thing but then again could it be first come first serve
