Star Wars Nightastically Delicious! ~ Updated 10/24: Nov PTR Started...Link in Siggie

Alternate Title: "We Ate All the Food and We Broke All the Rides! (And Who Needs Sleep, Anyway?)" This sums up our trip well, but it's a bit long for a title...

Anyway, welcome to our third WDW trip in the last 9 months! The first was a commando-style 4.5 day trip last September. The second was a leisurely 10 day/3 resort vacation in January. This one was a 3.75 day marathon of Star Wars Weekends, ADRs, and late MK nights!

The cast of this trip consists of my husband, "Dug", and me, "Dugette":



Our dog Bailey (see background of pic) went to "camp" (kennel). Our cat Kitty guarded the house while we were gone:



Our trip was Thursday, June 3rd to Monday, June 7th, 2010 (Thursday being travel only). Our primary objective was Star Wars Weekends, as Dug is a big Star Wars fan. I'm not so much (I don't mind it, but it's just not my thing), but I got to go to WDW for it, so that was just fine!

We originally booked our resort as a bounceback during our January trip. We booked POFQ and intended to stay there. Until a couple weeks before our trip...

Since I work in accounting, naturally I was doing "fuzzy Disney math" during my spare moments at work. Some things you should know:

1.) We wanted to eat at all the places at AKL sometime, but didn't know when we'd be able to fit that in.
2.) We like animals. We were intrigued by AKL. And there are Zebra Domes there.
3.) With the Annual Passholder discount and an arrival night at Pop Century, it would be less than $250 total to upgrade POFQ to AKL Savanna View.
4.) I had some money saved up (my "fun money") that I was willing to use on Disney.
5.) I opened a Disney Visa card recently and got $200 to spend at Disney...for free!

Given the set of circumstances, you can see how foolish we'd be NOT to upgrade, right? So, we ended up switching around our resort and many ADRs to accommodate this last-minute change.

For more detail, feel free to check out our very short and very last-minute PTR here: "Lions and Tigers and Wookies... Oh My!"

I'm here!!!

Our puppy is Bailey too. He's a chocolate lab.

We got the $200 Disney Visa points to spend too! But that went fast without having the DDP this trip (my DH already had the Disney Visa so I decided to open a 2nd one to get the $200)

I have the same thoughts about SW...it's what I put up with to get a Disney vaca

We have a lot in common it seems! Our Bailey is a black-and-white Cocker Spaniel. We also were not on the DDP this trip, just Tables in Wonderland discounts. And if I have to wait in some long SW lines to go to WDW, so be it! And it was fun to see Dug as excited as a little boy!

I will say that this was by far the most and longest lines I've waited in at Disney so far. I can't blame your DH for wanting to sit it out!

Day 0 - Thursday, June 3, 2010 – “Punch it, Chewie!” (Our Travel Day)

Our jouney into hyperspace was fast approaching. It was the day before our trip (Wednesday, 6/2). Dug noticed a small spot near the corner of his lip. Normally, this would not be a cause for concern. But, if you read our last trip report (“The Magic and the Misery”), you know why this small spot caused a big freak out. For those not in the know, Dug was diagnosed with impetigo just hours before our January trip. And it did not get better until we returned home and got better medication for it. It was not fun. I will spare you pictures of it (they can be seen in the old TR if you’re a glutton for punishment). However, I will show you the small spot that caused panic before this trip:



Looks pretty innocent, right? Well, Dug wasn’t taking his chances. He called up the doctor’s office that gave him the antibiotic that worked when we got home from our last trip. Asked for a refill, just in case. And they approved it! He picked up the antibiotic after work that day and began taking it. The good news is that he had no problem this trip! We don’t know if it was impetigo or not (the odds of having it again can’t be very high), but Dug was healthy for this trip (and took the full course of medication, just in case). On a side note (to those who read about my illness during our last trip), I was healthy too! I put us both on an Airborne regimen both before and during this trip. I wasn’t taking any chances, either.

So, our health taken care of, we prepared for departure. Packed that night. The next day, Thursday 6/3, we got up early and loaded up the car with luggage, for us and for the dog. Said goodbye to Kitty. Gave her a big heap of food. Got the dog (Bailey) in the car. Dug drove me up to the park and ride, so that I could take the bus to work, as usual. On the way, I realized that I forgot to make sandwiches to bring to the airport with us for dinner. Oh, well.

After dropping me off, Dug brought Bailey to “camp” (since we had no relatives available to take her during this trip). We had forgotten to pack her leash, so he had to carry her inside. Once in the lobby, she ran around while he completed the paperwork. Normally, she likes going to camp and runs straight inside the kennel area when they open the door. But last time I brought her there, she wanted to stay with me instead and had to be led back there on her leash. Dug experienced the same kind of thing this time. Bailey just wanted to stay with him. When the person working there called her over, she did go over. But, when the lady tried to pick her up, Bailey crouched down and peed all over the floor! Good thing they know and love her there! So, the lady took her back and Dug headed to work.

We both worked all day. I had lunch at the cafeteria at work just so that I could pick up a couple of to-go sandwiches for our dinner at the airport. Who needs overpriced airport food? Plus, we wanted to make sure we’d have enough time to eat. Dug’s sister had again agreed to let Dug park in her driveway and then take him to the (nearby) airport. However, she had a meeting at work and didn’t think she’d be able to get home until 5:15pm or so. Our flight was at 7pm and this made Dug a bit nervous.

I had an all-company meeting at work that was supposed to end at 4pm. I was planning to leave right after that. Well, of course, it ran late. Around 4pm, there were 10-15 people that bailed (busses to catch). I tried to wait it out, though, as I didn’t want to be rude and leave while the guest speaker was still talking. I managed to stick it out about another 15-20 minutes, until the guest speaker was done. It was then announced that, although we were running late, we were still going to be doing our fun team-building activity with prizes. I scooted out of the room at that point, along with a couple others. I had a flight to catch!

Went back to my desk and grabbed my stuff. Almost forgot the sandwiches in the fridge, but I got them! I changed into jeans and headed for the light rail to the airport.

Meanwhile, Dug’s sister had changed up her plans. Instead of being in a meeting at work, she had to bring a work-related guest to the airport for a 5:15pm flight! Dug found out about this on his way out of work, as his sister wanted to take them at the same time. He ended up telling her to take the other person and come back for him, as the other person was cutting it ridiculously close to their flight time.

Due to this fun, I actually got to the airport before Dug (for the first time in our 3 trips)! I went down to the door that he wanted me to meet them at and sat outside to wait. The whole time I was waiting, there was an SUV parked right in front of me. There was no activity outside the car. I could see an infant in the backseat (little hand waving around). I could see there was someone else in the backseat, but couldn’t make out how old of a person. Seemed small, though, like at best a 12-year-old maybe? Anyway, 5-10 minutes go by with this baby and possible child sitting in the backseat of an unattended car. My first thought is that they sure don’t police the drop-off area like they used to…no police anywhere asking idle cars to move! Second thought was, “Do I report this to someone?” Finally, a man came out of the airport. He took the baby out of the car and played with it. Never could make out the age of the other person. Then, he put the baby back and went back into the airport again. Very strange. As I was pondering this, Dug and his sister arrived. By the time I’d finished helping to unload our luggage, the SUV was gone. Odd.

We said goodbye and thank you to Dug’s sister then headed into the check-in area. We grabbed some seats by the door and just decided to eat there. We were doing pretty good on time, the security lines weren’t too long, and we didn’t want our water confiscated.

The dinner I had gotten for us earlier was: a Roast Beef on Focaccia for Dug, an Italian on Ciabatta for me, a side of baby carrots and dip to share, and a bottle of water to share. My sandwich was super messy. Both were big, though, and filled us up.

Time to check our bags. We got one free checked bag each, since we were flying Delta and have the Delta AmEx cards. Good deal. We actually had a lot of room to spare in the luggage, since we each were able to take a big checked bag and a small carry-on for free.

Headed over to the security line. Noticed that there was a guy who was talking on his cell phone while he removed his shoes and filled up his bins. Seemed unwise, why not hang up the phone and call back after security?

We sailed smoothly through security. Although the guy working there shuffled around my things, which caused my quart-sized bag to rip open. Oh, well, no big deal.

We were through security before we knew it. This turned out to be the least rushed airport experience we’d had in a long time. We found our gate, grabbed some seats, used the restrooms (cool Dyson hand dryer in there!), and read. I only got through the Main Street section of the Hidden Magic book I was re-reading and it was time to board!

We were just in front of the wing. Dug had the window seat, I was in the middle, and another woman was seated next to me. Since the flight was not full, they made an announcement that people could change seats if they wanted to. A flight attendant informed the woman next to me that there was an open window seat a few rows back, if she wanted it. She considered it, but it was obvious that she preferred her aisle seat, so I told her it didn’t matter to me…I was just planning to sleep anyway. So, she stayed put. She said she’d worked hard for her aisle seat. She hates it when she has to jump over people to get out. I was thinking, “Good thing I don’t plan on getting up during this flight then!”

My plan to sleep during the flight was thwarted by lots of turbulence. Between the bumps and the dinging and the frequent announcements, I only got a little rest. But we did enjoy our Fresca and peanuts.

Dug wanted to watch the movie that was showing, "Invictus". They started it really late, though. So late, in fact, that they didn't have time to show the end of the movie. Now Dug will have to rent it sometime!

The woman next to me wasn’t a problem, for the most part. Until towards the end of the flight. She got up to use the restroom. When she returned, I was hit by a wave of scent. I think she must have doused herself in perfume! Uggggg! I had to bury my nose in Dug’s shoulder for awhile (pretending to sleep) because I could hardly breathe!

Luckily, we arrived at MCO shortly after. We had an interesting flight attendant/announcer on the plane. For instance, as we were pulling into the gate, we hear, “If you have any comments or feedback on this flight, please write it on a $20 bill and hand it to a flight attendant on your way out. If you have lost anything on the plane, just go to our website at 'www.ebay.com/delta/flightattendantretirementfund' and you can bid on your things to get them back…” Interesting and mildly amusing.

Although we were getting in at the same time as our last two trips (just after 11pm Florida time), it seemed like the airport was busier than we’d ever seen it at that time. Not crowded, just busy. We knew June would likely be busier than September or January, but this was our first sign of it.

We had arrived (I guess the airport doesn't look too busy in this pic):



Up next: We head to Pop for a few hours!

Day 0 - Thursday, June 3, 2010 – Four Hours of Pop Century

Once we had disembarked from our plane, we made the traditional restroom stop, took the mini-monorail, then headed down to find our luggage (we were coming in too late to have Disney handle the bags). Once we had retrieved our bags, we made our way to the Magical Express area. On the way, we saw these signs:





As is now tradition for us, there was no wait at the Magical Express counter. (Don’t worry, the people you see behind me in the picture were gone by the time we made it up to the counter):



After checking in, they sent us on our way down the corridor. Also empty:



We were on the Magical Express, waiting to leave, by about 11:30pm. We took our “traditional” seat in the front row. Behind the driver, just like last time. A number of other people loaded on. I heard another ME person tell our bus driver that he had a lot of people for Pop Century on his bus. After about 10 minutes, we were on the road. We forgot to take a picture of the famous WDW sign, but you’ll see us make up for that later.

Our first stop was Saratoga Springs. Ah, memories of our last trip…trying to get to Downtown Disney via Saratoga Springs. Anyway, one family got out there. Next, we headed over to Port Orleans Riverside. Ah, memories of our “home” last time! Several people got off the bus there. We passed French Quarter on our way out…the “home” that almost was for this trip! Next up was Pop Century!:





We thought this golf cart was cool:



I remembered reading somewhere that you can get stuck in a long line to check in because of all the people on the ME coming in at once. So, Dug and I hatched a plan! Dug would go retrieve all of our bags and I would zoom straight into the lobby to check us in. We were feeling quite clever! Well, turns out that the driver made an announcement that, because there were so many people getting off here, we were all to wait in the bus until he had removed all of our bags from the bus. After that, he would let us out. Because we were in the front seat, and therefore getting off the bus first, this worked out pretty well for us. Once he let us off, we were each able to quickly grab our own bags and head inside!

We did the online check-in, which actually had a slightly longer (1 minute or so) wait than the standard check-in. We asked the CM about transferring our luggage to AKL the next day. They said that all we needed to do was call before leaving, then leave our luggage in the room, next to the window. Nice, easy transfer!

We were in the ‘80’s section. The CM drew us a map of where to go. We had a different route in mind, though. On our September trip, we’d stayed at Pop, but were in the parks so much that we never had a chance to explore it…at all. We at least wanted to see the Generation Gap bridge. So, we dragged our luggage the long and scenic route around Pop. Here’s the bridge and the view from the bridge:





We could also see a bit of the future Animation Resort in the dark.

Me hanging out with giants on our walk:





We walked along the lake and enjoyed all the signs about ‘80’s milestones. We also caught sight of this at some point:



A stairway:



We made it to our room around 1am. Our towel animal was waiting for us in the window:



We were pleasantly surprised at how nice this room was. I’m assuming it had been recently remodeled. Not that there was anything wrong with the ‘50’s section we stayed at in September, but this was super nice and felt very new! For what it’s worth, we were in room 7439. And, if we had a car, it would have been very convenient to the parking lot. I’d definitely return to this room/building again!

Here are some photos:













We went to bed around 1:30am. We had to get our 3.5 hours of sleep before an early morning the next day! Early Magic Hours at the Studios and Star Wars Weekends autographs to line up for!

Up next: Would you believe that there were people waiting in line for Billy Dee Williams’ autograph before we even left Minnesota? Will we be able to “use the force” to get autographs? Stay tuned!

My stomach sank when I read this. So glad he was able to get the antibiotic and it didn't turn into something more!

Yep! We were in the 80's section in December, and the rooms looked a lot different. I really like the refurb!

Yes just for the day. We live about an hour and a half from THE WORLD! I really wanted to see MSEP & the new fireworks so I took DD with me. It was great! But we won't be going back until after summer is over! Too hot and crowded now!!

Looks like you are off to the great start! So glad no one was ill this time! I hope you got to make up for all the food you didn't get to eat last trip!

I just want to know did they bring there sleeping bags with them. That's crazy not sure if I will visit when Star Wars is there.
