It has been a little over a year since I was in WDW and I was dying to get back. A few weeks before our trip Pete and I were talking and we realized he was off work from December 31st to January 17th. We decided to start vacation early. We thought about driving to WDW, stopping in the Carolina's to visit some friends and getting to DIsney on our original check in date of January 5th. BUT a one way car rental was over a $1,000 so nope not happening. Then I switched our flight so we flew out of BWI on January 3rd. I made us a two night reservation at Port Orleans French quarter. I was excited to stay here! So two extra Disney Days! YAY! I was so excited.

I finally finished our Disney Tie Dye shirts. I had to make 9 of them. They took forever. I am so happy how awesome they turned out.
January 2, 2011
I finally finished packing. My dad bought me a luggage scale so I weighed my luggaged and them rearranged a few bags and was all set. I took my shower and headed to bed. My sister was picking me up at 5am!!!
January 3, 2011
5AM! We are awake, dressed and ready to head to the airport. Our flight was at 7am. The Airport was horrible! We waited in the check in line almost and hour, then atleast 30 minutes to get through security. It was NUTS! But we made it to the gate and boarded within 10 minutes. We got to sit in the very first set of seat. How awesome, we were first one and first off!
The flight was uneventful, I listened to my iPod until the darn earbuds were killing my ears! I hate them. They arn't even the cheap-o ones that come with the iPod, but $120 Bose ones! I wish I could find my on the ear headphones.
SO we got off the plane and Pete got a much needed cofee. I got out our documents and we made the long treck to the Magical Express.
Once on board we were onour way. I sat in the front seat next to a stranger. I love the front seat on the bus cause I need to get this picture:
We made a stop at Old Key West and then Saratoga Springs before we got to Post Orleans French Quarter. We pulled up around 10:30am. Check in was easy and we were putin Building 5, right next to Jenna! YAY! But our room was not ready. Boo! We needed to leave our carry on bag with the luggage department. This was tricky since we had two book bags, mine was 100% full or our electronics. Laptop, 2 Camera's 2 Lens, external flash, 5 chargers, power strip, etc. Petes had a bunch of other things that didn't quite fit anywhere else. I rearanged and got everything in to my bag or pockets. In Pete's bag (that we were taking to the parks with us) was the camera, the tripod, the travel folio, ponchos, advil and the speardsheet! I had a sneaky suspision this would happen since I knew we were checking in so early so I brought some zip ties to secure out bag. I got it all "locked up"!
I got in the guest services line while Pete went to check our luggage in. He came back and I was in the same spot, he went to the gift shop and came back and I was in the same spot, he went back to the gift shop. FINALLY after 35 minutes, I kid you not, I got to the desk. There was only 2 people in front of me but the CM was SLOW! I needed to upgrade our 10 day tickets (no expiration) to Park Hoppers. Well she couldn't do it here. What the Heck? So I got a print out of our dining just because I had stood in line so long and wanted to do something. LOL
Finally we headed to the MK bus. I was texting Jenna and Lisa M. to find out where my ladies were. We were at the Magic Kingdom in no time.
I was excited to see the Christmas decorations still up.
I sent Jenna a text and she said she was near the Castle making her way to her lunch reservations. I guess it was about 12:20pm. We headed down Main Street.
My future Dream Job is selling Balloons on Main Street.
We were almost to the end of Main Street near the partners statue. I looked acrossed the street and spotted Jenna's famous Mickey Ears. She has more then anyone I know. I darted acrossed the Street, right in front of the Move it Shake it show. Pet ewas trapped on the other side. We stood and talked a few minutes and watched a bit of the show.
As soon as Pete could cross the street he scooped Baby Riley up. He got to hold Riley before me!
We said goodbye and parted ways for lunch. Pete and I headed over the bridge to Liberty Square. We had reservations at the Liberty Tree Tavern.
We checked in early since it was 1:00pm and our reservation wasnt until 2pm. I knew it, but played dumb. I had not had breakfast and was famished. Lunch was really good. I do not like dinner her, but had heard lots about the fried cheese here so I wanted to try it for lunch. Pete had never been to LLT and you all know I love doing new stuff each trip.
Now for some Food Porn.
We had the fried cheese as an appitizer. I loved the little ones. Next time I will request all little ones since the other ones were just normal Cheese sticks.
We both got burgers, but decided we should have shared. We couldn't finish them.
During this part of the trip we had no dining plan. It was all out of pocket.
For desert we shared the Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake. It was yummy.
After lunch I was soo tired. We had been up since 5am and it was now 2:15ish. We found seats for the 3pm parade and parked it.
I am so glad my boy has long arms, it is so hard to take self portraits with a DSLR.
We were surprised with a performance by the Main Street Philharmonic.
The parade started not much longer. Now let me take this time to complain about rude people in Disney World. We got seats on the wall EARLY. No one was sitting yet. I set up the tripod in front of me. Not to use, but to deter people from sitting in front of me. I wanted pictures. We were sitting not too close to each other, a few inches inbetween. A loud family sat next to Pete and the older lady next to him kept getting closer and closer. finally he was all up on me. Move over Dude!! He mumbled about the lady and blah blah blah. She was totally all up on him! FInally he couldn't take it and stood up. HAHAHA! The Parade Started and I started taking pictures. The daughter asked Pete to sit down since her Mom couldn't see. He was directly in front of the Mom. The Mom spoke no english. So Pete told her no, there was no room. The lady said something to the mom who finally moved her butt over. She was still REALLy close to Pete. I would have been a witch about it, but he is the nice one. LOL
I think the Genie looks like my ex boyfriend and he creeps me out now. LOL Great something else the Ex has ruined for me. LOL
