Snow Unexpectedly Turns 3 Nights Into How Many?? NEW TR UP!!

I have always wanted to try the Food & Wine Festival however with 2 sons (one in college & one in high school) we have always gone in April (school vacation) or May when college lets out. So this year my son Ryan graduated college & we went to Disney in May. I knew we would be going back next April because our son Cody would be graduating high school & we took a trip when Ryan graduated high school so we have to do the same for Cody right?? So on our May 2011 trip we updated our park passes to annual passes.

Well one night I said to DH "Gee I have always wanted to go to Disney in October for the Food & Wine Festival & we have annual passes so he said "Sure Let's Go". Woo Hoo!!! You don't have to tell me twice. I did not want to go for too long as I knew we would be planning a trip for next April...Now keep this in mind as the trip goes on.

So I booked for Oct. 26th through the 29th. Three nights & 4 days as I booked a late on Oct. 29th (5:30 pm). So we would have some morning time in the parks.

Let me introduce Jeff & I. I am the Disney addict in the family. I do all the planning & my husband Jeff is very easy going & will just about go along with anything I plan. Although I was going to book an earlier home & it was his idea to book a later so we could enjoy some more Disney time. He does have some great ideas once in a while.

Here is a pic of Jeff & I with a pal from our May 2011 trip



I will post our first day tomorrow..

Coming Up:

First flight on a different airline from a new airport
Do we get there early or late??
Where are we staying???

I will do an update tonight. We are headed to look at a college for Cody today. It is in NH and only about an hour away. It is a technical college (he wants to be a personal trainor) and he would be able to play soccer also which he wants to do badly. He has teammates that went there this year that will be introducing him to the soccer coach. I on the other hand want to see the housing units & hear about the classes.

Maybe this will be a good fit for him. I know he would like to keep playing soccer, plus this is close enough for you to go and see home games. Having buddies already there will be nice, too, to help him feel comfortable. Keep us posted on his decision.

I look forward to the report. We always try to get the latest flight out of MCO on departure day, too, so that we can soak up all of the last bit of magic we can before going back to face the real world. It would be really tough to wake up early on the last day and have to go straight to meet the Unmagical Express bus.

The visit went very well. The school is a 2 year school but the credits transfer easily to other NH colleges & we got to meet the soccer coach & have an extensive conversation with him. Where it is a smaller school the classes are small which I like so you get more of a 1 on 1 type of class & they have a learning center where professors & students will help other students if they are having issues. These professors & students do this on their own time & it is free. So different than big colleges. I think Cody would do well in this environment. There are some classes he has no problems with but then give him Math & forget it. He would not like me saying this but it's the truth.

Anyway yes I think it is great to get a flight later in the day. We had a good last morning before we left (the first time).

I am having a problem downloading my pictures with Photobucket. I don't know what their problem is. Is there another photo sharing site that others use?????

Let me tell you a little about the planning for this trip. We wanted to stay at POFQ as that was our favorite Moderate. When I called to make the reservation they did not have any rooms available with the AP rate but they did have POR Riverside. I was not happy as I have always felt that resort was so huge & so many bus stops that we would not like it but I booked there in the hopes that something would open up at POFQ. Well nothing opened up so POR it was.

So with the resort booked the next decision was if we were going to MNSSHP. I was not sure if we would be visiting Disney again in Oct for a while so I wanted to do it. So I ordered and printed our tickets online. My husband Jeff is NOT one to dress up but he did do a little of it.

When planning this trip little did I know I would end up in the hospital 2 1/2 weeks before our trip!!! I kept telling my doctor that I am leaving on Oct. 26th and I have to get better by then. Well I was better thank God even though I found out I was anemic the night before we left. I had to rush & get some iron pills that were prescribed & my primary care doctor panicked & said I should get an appt. with Hematology?? because I was bleeding inside. NOOO I was not bleeding still. My anemia was due to my Colitis not anything else.

So a little drama before my trip but no one was stopping me from getting on that plane Wednesday!!

Ok I need to see about Photobucket so I can get some pictures on here.
