HI Everyone! I am back and wanting to be at Disney. It hasn't even been a good 24 hours!
Let's start with the cast members of the MERBs (Mack Epps Ruffin Bruce)!
From youngest to oldest..
There is my Mom..DNana to everyone! Over 50 (we don't talk age, let's just say she is Mom to 7 and I am her youngest. You do the math) Spry, loving women who kept up with us!!! DAuntie (who was born from another mother but totally belongs to us) Christel. Lovingly Known as "Auntie" Fistel.
DH Shawn, Me, DS Seth, and DD Chayce. My best friend DBFF Bernadette, my adoptive DN Chauncey, and DN Kayla. Is that everyone.....yes!
It's great because our kids are around the same ages and they are each others BF too. So Just a great BFF Fest!
So I got off work early on Tuesday and did some last minute running around. My family and I cleaned house and went out to eat. The kids were excitedly talking about what they wanted to do first. This is our 2nd trip to Disney, DNana's 3rd and everyone else's first. On the way home I called my friend in Hilton Head to remind her to call me. She is away on vacation and called to wake me up. See I have a baaaaaaaaaaaaaaad memory! I am sometimes affectionately and sometimes not so affectionately Known as "Dory"! (And I planned the trip. Thanks to you all and these boards) So she thought that I would forget to set the alarm.... I told her no way I am going to Disney tomorrow how would I forget to set the alarm........ Um so....I um woke up to my girlfriend saying..."Girl, if you didn't answer this phone this time...I was calling Nana!!!" So up at 4:05 Am, dressed, washed, and ready to go! Loaded the car and got in it and .......RINGGGGGG cell phone. DBFF is running late. The original plan was that all of us would meet at the airport. Instead we all met at DNana's and left from there. We park our cars at the Airport parking which was great. They came to the car pick us and luggage up and we were off to the airport. It was nice because I had a 50% off coupon to park there...."Dory moment"....Later in the trip report. At the airport we check our bags curbside and DNana couldn't find her ID License Our Flight left at 7:00 AM and we were checking in bags t 6:15AM. Yes cutting it close. We grabbed something to eat and were boarding the plane. Oh and this is the first time my DBFF and DN flew! That was funny! On take off DBFF had her face covered and DN was positioned strategically at the window and kept saying, "What was that?!?"
She loved it after being in the air. The take off and landing...not so much...We got to the airport 20 minutes early and went to the magical express check in. Breezed through that (because we had our preprinted passes) and we were on the bus in 20 minutes. Watched a movie about Disney...and Arrived at Pop Century in 35 minutes.
My family and DNana and DA could not check in online due to some kind of blip with the online check in. DBFF did. But honestly we were done about the same time. We got our stuff and checked our carry ons with "Luggage" because our rooms weren't ready and hopped on the next bus to........drumrollll....little longer because I forgot....No just kidding. MAGIC KINGDOM!!!!
