No Kids Trip to Disney (our early Christmas trip) update 1/1/11
This will be my attempt at another TR. I never did to my DL one and really do hope to do it. But enough there . . .
The cast, just me and hubby (Patty and Dale)! Left the kids at home (they are all adults) and prayed that our house would still be standing and our dogs still well!
We had an 8:25 am flight from Philly to Orlando. With all the talk about the new screening process, we thought we better get there the recommended two hours early. When we flew in January for the half marathon, there was NO ONE in the line at security. This time, all the lines were completely full and the line to get into the security area was WAY DOWN the hall. Thankfully, we allowed plenty of time and it move quickly. I will say they are efficient, yet quick there. There is no body scanner at this security check point (only one terminal has it, others are coming though).
So we get to the gate and sit and relax, waiting for time to board. Around 8am they announce that our 'crew' is delayed (Dale says overslept or enjoying their breakfast) and we'll be getting boarded as soon as they arrive. They arrive, but we then learn, one more is still at security, UGH!!! FINALLY it's time to board. We paid the extra for the emergency row as Dale has really long legs and likes this extra room. So we finally get boarded and are then told we have to go de-ice the plane. COME ON, it is 33 degrees out and it has not rained at all, we've flown in the winter and never had to do this (or maybe they just did not tell us, but this was interesting to see).
So, FINALLY, after we are de-iced we are off to Orlando. Thankfully, they made up some time so we only arrived about 15 minutes late. We quickly got to Budget where I had 'hotwired' a car. We were then on our way to our 'HOME'.
We arrived at AKV - Kidani Village and had used the online check in (which so many people had raved about). Well, our room was not ready. I was bummed. I had planned to change into something lighter since it was quite a bit warmer here in Florida than back home. Oh, well, not a big deal, off we went to DHS (still want to type MGM).
Arriving in the afternoon, there was no way we could do Toy Story, 100 minute wait and no fast passes. So, Dale and I shared a Chicken Ceasar wrap since we had a 4:25 ADR at Mama Melrose.
Then we walked around. We saw some favorites
I know we did the Great Movie Ride and Muppets, but at the moment, I do not remember what all we did.
Up next, dinner at Mama Melrose and the Osborne lights.
