Sounds like mutiny. That doesn't happen to Desperado's, no reason to jump from a leisure ship, and if the kids misbehave you can say:

"WE WILL LEAVE THIS PARK RIGHT NOW AND NOT COME BACK IF YOU KEEP THIS UP."

You can always come back later when they promise to behave, and you didn't have to worry about ruining your schedule.

Good luck on your journey, you're welcome to stop and smell the roses with us.

The moderators have decided this thread would be a better fit on the theme parks community board, so I'm going to move this there now.

Desperado friends, help! I need some support

I took a nap and had a DISNEY TRAVEL NIGHTMARE this afternoon. I dreamt I forgot the plane tickets, dreamt I forgot to make resort reservations and was forced to spend all my money on the most expensive suite in the highest tower at the Contemporary.

I woke up so stressed out. LOL. I need a margarita. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, right?

Hi Jaci-h and everyone else. The link will remain the same, it just on the theme parks community board instead of the main theme parks board.

Have fun

No problem. Most airlines e-ticket, Desperados calmly walk to the counter, hand over their ID and credit card and say "Find me, these travel pressures made me forget my printout."

This happened to us once and we stayed at the most expensive room (well not the most) available at the Dolphin. It was friggin awesome! Spoiled every other hotel out there for us, so we were forced to move to Florida or always be miserable in subpar hotels. Then we found a nice hotel in Key West, so we live in fantasyland and play in the Conch Republic.

Yes. I recommend mango margaritas in Florida. Alcohol and cigars just taste better in tropical weather. This is very Desperado.

You should re-schedule your flight for 2 hours from now.

Hey - if you're having margarita's it wasn't a nightmare then. Maybe it was just your brain tricking you into serving it a margarita.

It's just pre-trip jitters. You'll be good and having a blast in just a few days.

I'm kinda going to repeat what Pineapple Whip is saying - there's always a positive to something when you think its going wrong.

In fact I have a story where I had to stay at the Dolphin at the last min too ( we were going to stay in Tampa but the hotel was moldy), we became so spoiled by the Dolphin and we had an impromptu Disney visit. Talk about laid back planning - huh?

Recovering commando checking in!

Our last trip was our honeymoon, plus it was only DH's 2nd trip, so I admit to being very commando before we left. Once we were in WDW though, the trip became the bridge between my formerly commando self and my new desperado self. We had some great desperado days (partly due to the weather) and we're addicted now. We're foodies so we'll probably always have a handful of ADRs, but we're also looking forward to not even entering a park before 11am on our next trip, plus several non-park days.

Thanks for the cognitive reframe there! Needed a little breath of fresh air. No more dis before nap time.

Mmmmmmmmmm mango margaritas. I will be getting some form of alcohol at the Swolphin pool the moment we check in. I don't care if its only noon.

Thanks for the Desperado support. IDK what happened, but that was a very un-desperado dream!!

I am most definitely a desperado! We've toured so much that we now have no reason to rush to and from locations. I love just taking it all in. And we always manage to see our favorites, without planning like mad.

I felt very DESPERADO today when I answered the question "What park will you be in that day?" with "I don't know."

Well desperado friends.... the time has come! We fly to Orlando tomorrow at 7am This honeymoon is well deserved, as I have been cleaning all afternoon/evening to the sounds of the music that plays at Cinderella Castle and DH will have been working for 12 hours when we leave our flight. I'm officially ready. I've got my clothes packed, sunscreen, moleskin, shoes, snacks, boarding passes, and Disney ticket vouchers. Isn't that all I need?

We may stop at walmart in the morning before we go to the airport to get some ponchos because I don't like being wet But you know, that plan could change

See you on the other side!

Get a dart board, write the park names on it and throw a dart to see which one you'd like to do first.
