Joining in!

Loving all the pictures! AoA looks so cute. I would like to try it out but can't really justify the cost of a suite for our family of 3. And my son has already told me he won't stay in a Little Mermaid room.

Can't wait to see more!

One question: everything looks so deserted! These are from June? Are the crowds way down this year?
The week following Memorial Day is historically lower in crowds than the next week. As the month goes along, it picks up more. Remember, many of the Southern schools get out sooner than other schools because they start in August.

Yeah, I see the issue there. My son would want to do the Little Mermaid, either.

YAY! I'm here!

We also ended up in the 70's building, room 0123 (bottom floor backside next to the elevators).

Subscribing in to your trip report as I really enjoyed reading your PTR!

I've got mine up and going as well.

Look forward to reading yours as I work through mine. Sorry we didn't get to cross paths with you guys any.

Easy room number to remember! Glad to have you! I noticed a couple of times you and I were in the same park because you had posted wait times in the Touringplans app. Sorry we missed each other!

Singing the Monorail Blues. . .

After dinner, we went over to the room for a few minutes, and then walked the short walk to the busstop. We were doing the monorail loop for a while, starting at Epcot and moving over towards the Magic Kingdom area. Yeah, we were planning on using the entire monorail. The monorail worked fine in the beginning, but after a while in the Grand Floridian, it went down, and we ended up taking the boat over for our cupcake dinner at the Contemporary.


Four!


Your chariot approaches. . .


What happened to the Tronorail? Avengersorail just doesn't quite roll off the tongue, now does it?


Okay, I could really move in here.


Dude playing piano in the lobby. Tux and tails and all.


To take care of the yucky smell.


I wonder how much this Disney Vacation Resort will cost. . .


My castle!


The dude's replacement. Not so bad.


Avengersorail doing the Express to the Magic Kingdom


A beautiful sunset.

All of this took about 2 hours to do. We thought we'd do the entire monorail loop that night, but we never made it to the Polynesian.

Coming up. . .I wanna stay in the toaster oven so I can walk to the Magic Kingdom.

Enjoyed your trip along the monorail line. Hate that you had to miss stopping at the Poly---maybe next time.
