My First Trip Report - May 2011

Wow I know this is incredibly late, but better late than never, eh? This trip took place in May of last year. It was to celebrate the end of my Disney College Program and then pack up my stuff and head home. Only three days were supposed to be at Disney... but will we end up abiding by that rule?

The Details: 5/11/11-5/16/11.
Day 1- Arrival Day.
Day 2- Clearing out my apartment - hopefully getting to Islands of Adventure if we still had time.
Day 3- Disney Day
Day 4- Disney Day
Day 5- Disney Day
Day 6- Heading to Tampa to catch a Yankees game, then heading home.

This was less of a Disney Trip and more of a moving trip, since the drive is 22 hours back to Iowa I didn't want to do it alone so my Mom joined me. And so we have our Cast:

Former CP and current Seasonal Cast Member at Walt Disney World. I live in New York City, but at the time I lived in Iowa with my family. I am the middle child, it was my Freshmen year of college and was ecstatic about getting College Credit at Disney World!!
Age: 19
Favorite Disney Park: Magic Kingdom

Favorite Disney Restaurant: California Grill
Favorite Quick-Service Restaurant: Tangierine Cafe

Sara (Mom)

My mother lives in Iowa, along with my Brother (University of Iowa) and Sister (High School). She wasn't the biggest Disney enthusiast until a trip over Spring Break when I managed to change that. She says seeing me so happy spreads the happiness to the rest of the group. If it were up to me it be Disney for four days and no Universal, but she really wanted to go back to Wizarding World of Harry Potter since she had a bad experience when she went over Spring Break. I hadn't taken advantage of my Universal Season tickets as much as I should so I was onboard.
Age: Not allowed to say.
Favorite Disney Park: Animal Kingdom
Favorite Disney Hotel: Animal Kingdom Lodge
Favorite Disney Restaurant: Boma (noticing a trend with these answers?)
Favorite Quick-Service Restaurant: Anywhere she can get a Turkey Leg.

So now you have an idea who will be on this journey. Many surprises await us. Lots of things are decided Spur of the moment.

Will we end up making all three Disney days or venture out to other Orlando Parks instead?

Will we pack my stuff up soon enough to make it to Islands of Adventure?

What spur of the moment plans will arise?

Once all of my photos are uploaded I shall start detailing the trip so you can find out
