Yo HO HO HO a Wonder We Will Go! Finally a TRIP REPORT! Dec 5-9th, 2010
I promise next trip report I will come up with a better title..but I went with Yo Ho Ho Ho (combo of Pirates/Santa Claus) for my pre trip report…so unfortunately I cannot come up with something more creative for the TR.
I am doing the TR on its own thread just because I don’t know how to change the title of my Pre-Trip. But if you get a chance read through the Pre-Trip…I did a lot of planning!!! It was a lot of fun and made my cruise even more special..
Here’s the link for my PTR.
So quickly here’s the crew:
Me (this was the 12/4 before heading to Downtown Disney.)
Miguelito (DS2) and Manuelito (DS8months)
Chloe (stepsister 14 going on 15 in couple days!)
Day 1 Will we make it?
I couldn't sleep Friday night. I had taken the day off to pack and I needed every minute of it..on top of packing I was cleaning the house so my day went by fast. I woke up early saturday morning to pack my car...we were so packed in there it was crazy...
and that's because we didn't have Chloe's bags yet!!
My plan was to leave at 11 and we had to wait for Chloes dad to get home from work so we hung out at their house until he did...as soon as he walked in, we walked out and headed to Orlando!
We left Tampa around Noon and made it to DTD around 2pm and we immediately went to the shops. I bought my mickey head bracelet (FINALLY)…I always wanted one. And my son’s wanted cooking spoons..yes you’ll probably see them in some of my pictures. I also bough my snowman Mickey antenna topper since my Santa Mickey was dirty and pink.
We took some pictures of course:
We went on the rides and waited till my mom and her husband (Chloe’s dad) arrived.
Surprisingly there wasn’t a long wait. Once again we sat in the Meteor Room. One of these days we will get to sit in the Ice Age room!!
Manuelito with the infamous mickey spoons.
Dinner was delish as always..I had the guacamole burger and Miguel had the shrimp dinner.
Chloe had the same burger I had.
We hung out a bit and went to the shops again, My mother bought Miguel the Lion King toy set and we lost Pumba within 10seconds of opening the box. So luckily one of the CM’s went and got us another one.
here's chloe doing the must do pic with captain jack sparrows hat:
We said our goodbyes and jumped on the road towards Cocoa Beach.
Now, this is probably the most stressful drive I’ve ever driven…I jumped on the 528 I believe, and I was needing gas, and I said well the first gas station I see I’ll pull off to fill up. So as I’m saying that I miss the gas station and thought no biggie, I’ll fill up at the next one…well, wow, the next stop was like 40minutes away. I started panicking. Not only was I on E, but my baby was crying and I was not going to pull over in some exit that was pitch black…I tried calling the FL Hwy Patrol..yes I did..no answer…when finally we saw some lights and got off, there was a gas station and publix! I was finally able to breath and laugh…I was really thinking we were going to be stuck out there by ourselves in the middle of nowhere!
We bought some food at publix for the night and jumped back on the road to head to Wakulla Suites.
When we were finally in Port Canaveral it was surreal!
Here’s a note: Stay at Country Inn & Suites, its right next to the port. Wakulla was a little far. But it was a nice stay if you have a big family.
Here's some pics:
It was a good stay..I didn't like the master bedroom..it felt spooky so we all stayed in the room with the two beds lol. Again...it was a good stay but it was too much room for just us..
We watched some movies and I think went to bed around 1am. Again, too many thoughts circling my head and it took me forever to fall asleep..I think I woke up on the hour and finally stayed up at 6am.
