Exclamation WARNING: YOLO 2012 Do NOT try this at Home!!! We’re Professionals Update: 3/18 Video

WARNING: YOLO 2012 Do NOT try this at Home!!! We’re Professionals (May TR)

To all who come to this place of Joy, Hope and Friendship (and YOLO)


Let me start off with a quick definition for those of you unfamiliar with the term:

YOLO: An acronym for 'you only live once'

“This motto is similar to the mottoes 'you've only got once chance to live' or 'enjoy it while you can'. People often use these phrases to persuade their friends to take risks or do something they normally wouldn't do…”

For example a Disney Trip that is planned 12 days out from the departure date.

WARNING: During this Trip Report you will encounter…
900+ Pictures from 3 different cameras and 2 iphones
6 Resorts, 4 Parks, 2 Pools and 1 bedroom
Every form of Disney Transportation: Magical Express, Bus, Monorail, Boats, Train, Sad Bus (aka Magical Express home)
Tons of Snacks/Food

Do not continue to read if you have any of the following:
A problem with happiness
If you have difficulty functioning on little sleep or watching people function on little sleep
An issue with extreme amounts of laughter and happiness
Are uncomfortable reading heartwarming stories of strangers
And last but not least have trouble finding room in your heart for Disney

If you are ok with all of the above then welcome aboard my third Disney Vacation Trip Report!!! If over the course of this report you find yourself hankering for more delightful reads please follow the links below down the rabbit hole to many more magical memories:

We loved it so much WE HAD TO GO BACK!!!
A Spontaneous Spring Break Trip Report

Crazy Eights take on the World: Spoiled Silly (Aug 2011 TR)

And the NEWEST addition to the Report Collection:

A Very BIG Move for One Little Girl: A Disney College Program Planning Diary.

Ok so a basic reasoning behind this trip (who really needs a reason to go to Disney?!) Obviously YOLO is the first and main reason. Spur of the moment trips are literally THE BEST. We planned the trip 12 days out and before we knew it we were off to the happiest place on earth to celebrate an onslaught of different accomplishments. If you wish to learn more about how the trip came about follow this link:


Now for a nice role call!!!

First up, incase you don’t know I’m Alicia.

22 years old and in love with all things Disney. Smells, music, atmosphere, food, characters and feelings you name it I probably love it. As I said before I just graduated college (CRAZY) with my BFA in Theatre Performance, now if you are like everyone else who I have come into contact with in my life you are going to ask me "What are you going to do with a degree like that?" Answer: I am moving to Florida in August for 6 months to do the Disney College Program and I cannot wait to see where life takes me from there.I am a "go with the flow" kind of person and my newly found modo since graduation is brought to you from Disney and Pixars UP: Adventure is out there!!! and I can't wait to find it. I grew up a Disney baby and although I just took a trip in March I couldn’t wait until August so I decided to throw in another tri, that makes this my this my 3rd trip in one calender year and I'm not even an annual passholder (now that's deication ) I realize that I am extremly fourtunate and lucky to be living the life I am.

Reason to YOLO: College Graduation, Pluto’s (my pillow pet) homesickness aka I needed to go back, riding Snow White’s Scary Adventure one last time and “STAR WARS WEEKEND” (we actually steered clear of MGM on the weekend)
Favorite Theme Park: MGM <3 (it will never be Hollywood Studios in my mind)
Favorite Meal of the Trip: San Angel Inn
Favorite Snacks of the Trip: Mickey Premium Bar
Favorite Ride: Tower of Terror
Favorite Disney Characters: Rapunzel/Pluto/Minnie Mouse
Favorite Disney Movies: Tangled//Little Mermiad
Favorite Disney Songs: Epcot area music loop, I sang it the entire trip because it's my alarm clock noise
Favorite Memory from the Trip: “The 14 hours of sleep and the 54 hours of being awake”


Andy is my fiancé(we got engaged in Disney on out August 2011 trip).He is 20 years old and he was forced into the love of Disney when we started dating 4 years ago. He has become accustom to the non-stop Disney chatter around my household and it’s starting to get to him. He use to sit back and listen but now he is becoming fluent in Disney and loves to get in on the conversation and the trips as well. This is our 4th trip together and in total he has been there only a measly 5 times. Gotta get that count up there, I volunteer myself as his vacation buddy!!!

Reasons to YOLO: Alicia needed a vacation partner, he actually hates the term YOLO haha
Favorite Theme Park: Hollywood Studios
Favorite Meal of the Trip: Peco’s Bills
Favorite Snack of the Trip: Goofy’s Candy Company Baseball Cookie
Favorite Ride: Toy Story Mania
Favorite Disney Characters: Donald Duck
Favorite Disney Movies: Aladdin
Favorite Memory from the Trip: “The birthday song at San Angel Inn”


She is my little sister and 20 years old (I guess isn’t so little anymore though). She is always planning imaginary Disney trips and thinking about the next restaurant she wants to eat at on her next vacation (we literally are always planning ahead, when’s my next trip?!). She shares a love of Disney obviously and she is probably my favorite family member to be in Disney with because we love to dance, sing and just be crazy.

Reason to YOLO: Star Wars Weekend, Staying in Country Bears (section in All Star Music)
Favorite Theme Park: Magic Kingdom
Favorite Meal of the Trip: Early of Sandwich
Favorite Snack of the Trip: School Bread
Favorite Ride: Space Mountain
Favorite Disney Characters: Tiana
Favorite Disney Movies: Princess and the Frog//Toy Story
Favorite Disney Songs: One Spark of Light
Favorite Memory from the Trip: “Poopin’ my pants seeing them ghosts”


Is Sam’s friend from school the baby of the trip 19 years old, going in to the trip I had met Brittany maybe twice in person. Let me tell you after maybe the first few hours in the airport I knew we were going to get along just fine. She was all about being a crazy YOLO(er) in Disney with us and was always willing to go with the flow even when running on literally no sleep. Her crazy antics were a GREAT addition to our trio.

Reasons to YOLO: Not having to wait until October and It was cheap
Favorite Theme Park: Magic Kingdom
Favorite Meal of the Trip: Pecos Bill
Favorite Snack of the Trip: Dole Whip
Favorite Ride: Expedition Everest
Favorite Disney Characters: Rapunzel
Favorite Disney Movies: Beauty and the Beast
Favorite Disney Songs: Fantastic (da du dun dun dunna na na with Mickey waving his hands over his head)
Favorite Memory from the Trip: “Planking Roy and Minnie at 3am”

And last but not least


The real reason for this trip!!! He is one of my best friends from college. When we first met two years ago I was on a rampage and he thought I was a crazy person but we quickly began to bond over our obsession or ummm… ehmmm LOVE of Disney. During our trip he was a DCPer working at Imgination/Captain EO. Due to his cast member status we were able to get a GREAT deal on this whole spur of the moment trip and we are all eternally grateful and forever in his debt<3

While we wait for this trip report to get underweight please feel free to watch this video of spontaneousness and crazy that are the YOLO(ers). I thank you all for reading along and we look forward to hearing from everyone and sharing our crazy amazing story with each and every one of you!!!
