DISmoms 3! If the Tiara fits... 5/13-5/17/11 Complete! 11/8!

Hell-ooooooo DISpeeps!! We are back with the story of our third...YES THIRD!!...trip to WDW without our husbands and without our kids! Not that we don't miss them terribly, and think of them often while we are away... but really, it is SOOO much fun that we just can't stop ourselves from doing it over and over again!

Our first year, we stayed at AKV, in a concierge level studio- just four of us, Lonnie, who was once upon a time my MOH and college roomate; Cammie, who I met on the DIS; and Kara, an axe murderer of unknown origins, also known as Karajeboo on the DISboards.

Year number two, we had all of our original members, plus two new lovely additions- Lovinlife, aka Pam who Kara & Cammie knew from here, and my dear friend from home, Joan, also called Wannabeadismom. We stayed in a 2 bdrm villa at BCV-

Well, this year, we lost two- Pam was unable to join us, and Cammie couldn't come either.... But then, we got two NEW ones!! Laura -CRdismom who we knew from guess where, and another dear friend of mine from home- Evie! We were all in for 4 nights in a 2 bdrm Boardwalk view villa at BWV!

I hope you'll join us for ANOTHER side-splitting, pants wetting adventure in the happiest place on earth!!

First Class, BABY!!!

We were all up and ready to go at the crack, heading to lovely Newark airport for our 7:45 am flight on Continental. Evie's hubby Tom was kind enough to wake up early with us, and schlep us all to the airport- gotta love a good husband!! Thanks, Tom! We got there a little early, because the month before my hubby had flown to Orlando on the same flight, and found out that now you can do the first class upgrade for $69 if you arrive early enough and there's availability (it used to be that you could upgrade online when you checked in, but no more). Anyway, we all hit that first row, and were happy to do the meet and greet for all the other oncoming pax....

Ok, well HER we knew from town (how crazy is that???) but we greeted all the rest too, I can promise you- we tend to lean on the friendly side... Joanie and I were ready to go!

Especially when the flight attendant INSISTED we try his bloody mary. Hey, who are we to argue? Even if it was 7:30 am!! We did, however, follow it up with a pretty yummy breakfast-

Evie, who is a nervous flyer, was thrilled to be seated next to an off-duty flight attendant- she was AMAZING, calmed Evie right down! We all enjoyed her company- she was a fantastic person.

Two and a half hours later, it was time for the first thrill ride of the trip- ORLANDO, BABY!!!

We made a beeline for the DME...which had a HUGE line!

That's ok- that can only mean one thing....time for ROPE DROP! For the stinky yellow Mears bus- BOO!

It was the strangest thing- they never showed "THE" movie- they just put on some Disney cartoons. What up wit dat???

And then the prettiest sight of all-

And as never before, we hit the DME jackpot- we were FIRST!!!

We checked right in, with a CM who had all the enthusiasm of my left largest toe, and Evie went over to pick up her 5 day park hopper-

Which would, of course, end up being upgraded to an AP later in our trip. (The husbands of Scotch Plains love me- their wives go on a little 5 day trip, and they all come back with an annual pass! ). Some BWV lobby pics-

This is supposed to be Lucy the Elephant from Margate, NJ-

Or, it could be the Coney Island elephant- but that would be very un-Disney, so we'll stick with Lucy.

I did take more than a few pics in there- but it's SO PRETTY!!! And....it was my first trip HOME since buying some BWV points this year....so you know I was in love!

Up next....hmmm...what should we do first at 11:55 am??????

NOOOOO!!!!!!! I'm so sad for you!!! Are you going to do another one? Next year we will be there May 4-6, before the cruise- not sure who will be at BCV other than Lonnie & me, but hoping for Kara & Joan- Kara, Joan & i are going on the 4 night Dream next year!

Loved your intro.
You must of been getting the first pictures up, while I posted.

This year's race with "Danskin" was Mother's Day Weekend.
"Trek's" race was suppose to be Labor Day weekend, but they cancelled with WDW and moved it over to Clear Water--FL. The whole point was doing the Triathlon at WDW. So now I am shooting for next May.

Comment-AirTran used to have upgrades for $39 online. We figured it was cheaper to upgrade than pay for luggage. Luggage is included with the upgrade. Anyways, AirTran changed the fee to $99.

You have to be a Dis'er to get this.

I've been waiting for this and I MUST remember to get the "fake" monorail shot on my next trip. It was kinda hard this time since I was traveling solo!

Love the BWV pictures. Love the theme. Its so Steele Pier 1960's and reminds me of visiting there with my grandmother. (Well - not in 1960 because even I am not THAT old, but you know what I mean) She lived in South Jersey and we drove down there every summer from the time I was about 7 to the time I became a surly teen.

I know you all probably had a wonderful time and I can't wait to read all about it.
