what a great start to your trip! I just can't fly/leave that early. I'll miss the plane! Love all the perks of first class, it's probably been 5 years or more since I flew it but oh, I remember some of those little niceties.

I am so sorry (again) about Mark's mom. I hope in some way, knowing she had already passed let you not stress and dwell on that during the trip. lord knows you had enough stress in other areas.

Bummer that it wasn't a "real" bus.

I love the shirt you're wearing in the picture of you!

I totally forgot about the upgrade to first class, nice! I would love to fly first class someday, if I ever go to Hawaii or Alaska, it's gonna have to be first class! I better start saving now!

Yay, Magical Express! Too bad it was a Mears bus, but at least you got the video, right?

Can't wait to read more!

Awesome start!! Love that your boss upgraded you to first class - spectacular!!! ANd free luggage... I really should consider that next time - it would probably be cheaper than paying all those baggage fees...

Can't wait to hear how check in went and see your resort.

If you live to be a 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day. So I never have to live without you.

I would have yelled at Mark if he was at work that day too and I was his boss. I'm really sorry to hear about his Mom.

Talk about an early wake up time. Only going to WDW will we all get up that early.

Amazing boss upgrade to first class? Extra sweet!

My favorite thing about First Class is the basically private security lane!

Never say no to coffee, especially that early in the morning!

LOL, Mark looks just like my Dad does when he's trying to figure out something with his phone!

Boo, Mears coach! So un-Disney.

Would never happen my friend, even if Mark did stop taking hilarious, hat pics. Tell Mark he did a great job on the title!!

Wow! Early morning is right!! But! Tis better to be in the "Muthaland" early and beyond tired, than it would be to miss an entire day and get there late. That logic is kinda like fuzzy Disney math. Only other Dis brothers and sisters would understand.
