Alligator Roadkill Was Just The Beginning!!! Updated 2nd May!!
Alligator Roadkill Was Just The Beginning!!- Four Friends And A Warrthawwwg =
No Sleep All Teeth!!
Hello there! My name is Sally and I am a long time listener first time caller and I am glued to the boards in an unhealthy way (as most of us are) but I have yet to attempt a trip report. Well that's all about to change as I lay down what happened to us on the most insane road trip that "sounded like a good idea at first".
We drove from Northern California to Orlando in one breath!
That's right kids no stops except gas (and trust falls)
When we reached the other side of this great land called America we saw and conquered the World YAY!
We also saw Universal WOO! Had the best week of our lives HOORAY!! And then drove back home (boo hiss!)
It doesnt sound too crazy- but when I throw in moth city, tornado alerts, snake attacks in the happy place, caffeine meltdowns on the side of the road and of course dead alligators& things start to get interesting!
I would also like to clarify that by non-stop we mean it!!
There is noooo sleeping in Disney, but there is also noooo sleeping on the way to Disney either apparently!
So let's start with intros.
This is me
I am a born and bred Aussie. I work at one of Australias largest childrens performing arts institutes for a living and I love my job in awkward amounts. I honestly get so much joy from day to day work its a little crazy. I even get to go to Disney as part of my job, which is such a drag
I also love rollerskating, markets, musical theatre and plastic flamingos...I do love other things including Disney (obviously) and the hubby Josh but that's a given. Josh is American so we lived in California for 3 years and now we are back in Australia- and in that time we went to Disneyland 10 times and disneyworld twice. We also adopted an obese show cat, got married in Vegas by Elvis, and drove across the whole country non stop=this trip report.
Favourite Park- Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios
Favourite Ride- Splash Mountain
Favourite Disney Food- Mexican Nachos
Favourite Disney Movies- Aladdin, Tangled and Pete's Dragon
Favourite Songs- 'Little Town'- Beauty and the Beast and 'It's Not Easy' from Pete's Dragon
Next is Josh
This is my husband Josh- he is the apple of my eye, but better...the chocolate of my eye? The mickey bar of my eye?
He loves Disney ,but not in an obsessive way like me (well all of us on here) he enjoys it when we go, he let's me talk about it non stop and even gives the obligatory nods and mmms when I tell him about new exciting facts and hidden mickeys etc. He even recently found and put on one DVD all the abc family specials when all the shows went to the world, you know like Full House and Boy Meets World and even Rosanne (ehh it was Disney, I watched but didn't love it)
Just so i could have a marathon night and watch them all at once. So he is pretty special in my book
He proposed to me at Disneyland (good work Josh) and we have been married for two years. He works as a bicycle mechanic and loves all things bicycle related-bicycles are his Disney you could say.
Favourite Disney park- Epcot
Favourite Ride- Thunder Mountain
Favourite Disney Food- Pizza from Pizza planet
Favourite disney movie- Toy Story Series
Fav disey character- Buzz Lightyear
Favourite Disney song Youve Got A Friend In Me
Next is Bek
Bek is one of my best friends in the whole world and she gets me in all my insanity. We met when we were in the musical Fame about 6 years ago and we clicked straight away! So when she rang and said she was coming to visit me in California I knew we would have the most amazing time. She is one of the most creative and talented people I know and she is a blast. She is just the kind of friend you can spend endless amounts of time together still have stuff to talk about. Plus she gets all gooey at nostalgic stuff so I knew she would be quickly converted to the ways of Walt.
Favourite Ride - Expedition Everest and Splash Mountain
Favourite Park - Magic Kingdom
Favourite Food - frozen choc bananas!
Favourite Movie - Alice in Wonderland
Favourite Songs - I'll Make A Man Out Of You and Kiss The Girl
Last but not least we have Tim
Last but not least is Tim. Tim is one of joshs old work friends and he is pretty amazing, he can laugh in any situation and he always makes people feel good about themselves. He is hilarious on so many levels! AND Tim loves Disney almost to an obsessive stage so you know he is a winner. He is the sweetest guy that you could never stay mad at (even when almost got us detained at Border Patrol in texas)He also knows all the words to all the Disney songs and a zillion musical songs which means he makes a freaking awesome car singing partner-which was essential for this trip!!
Favourite Disney Park- Animal Kingdom
Favourite Disney character-Alice
Favourite Disney Movie-Alice in Wonderland
Favourite Song- Thats How You Know- Enchanted
Favourite food- PICKLES! (Tim is obsessed with Disney pickles and its hilarious!
I swear I have about a million pictures of him with Disney pickles!)
So this trip came out of a joke and a few random conversations and I couldn't be happier that it did. It was the most spontaneous,caffeinated, glorious trip to WDW in the most hilarious fashion with 3 of my favourite people in the whole world!!
