FINALLY!! I definitely found your TR earlier and started reading it to get caught up, then bookmarked it to read later and somehow completely missed it and never got back to it because Iím a horrible person!

NOW, Iím here and ready to roll, thank you work for having nothing to do! Lol.

Cliff and luna bars are definitely a favorite staple of mine! Theyíre usually what I bring with me down to Disney to eat in the morning! Saves money and precious rope drop time!

Dear god moth city sounds absolutely horrible! That is seriously impressive that the wallet and pillow were still there! Thatís insane! Your hitchhiker story reminds me of some looney toons movie I was terrified as a child thakns to them picking upa hitchhiker that had a chainsaw and I think it was Daffy that was all ďheís gonna kill usĒ. That is quite the ordeal!!

Wow, you guys had quite the adventure just getting to Disney, I mean, I understand why security precautions are in place, but really, thatís insane!! Glad everything worked out in the end!
Ahaha road trip shenanigans, gotta love the over tired hyper crazyness! The trust falls seriously sound hilarious, I may have to instigate that next road trip!

Your drawings are awesome, just sayin! Also the awesome gas station looks awesome! Showers?! How cool!

Yay for finally being DISNEY DAY! After such a long road trip Iím sure it was very appreciated! Ahahahaah the amount of times that Paige and I cried over our last trip is seriously insane, like, we actually cried at least once a day, thereís just so much magic happening everywhere itís awesome! Thank god for sunnies otherwise everyone would see our make up streaked faces! Ah! The amount of times Iíve elbowed a kid in the head completely by accident because theyíre way too close is astounding, like, back up!

Ahahaha, how funny about Disnep, I mean, I always thought the D was some weird G thing going on there, but thatís just awesome! That looks like a pretty good first day in MK, I gotta say itís the best place for people watching!!

I have to say, Epcot is always the hottest day of the trip, I donít know why, but when youíre in WS, itís just DEATH BY SUN every dang time.

BAHA! The ridiculous amounts of round abouts, thatís a pretty good summary of Australia right there! I did go to seaworld up in the gold coast, that was pretty awesome!

Lol, no oneís good at counting and math in the morning, itís okay! Haha. I have yet to do KRR, and donít think I do, I know Iíd somehow be the one that gets soaked, boourns to the crabby pants on the ride! I am, by far, one of those people that starts the trend of ringing the bells, I do it every ride, and thereís usually a bunch of kids that realize itís okay and then want to do it thanks to me, baha! Your ride on dinosaur sounds like pretty much every time I go on it! I hate that thing!

Ahahah, single rider line adventures galore! These stories are great! Wow that sucks about having to walk from the employee entrance! Ugh! Lol!! Hilarious fliriting story! Thatís awesomely funny!

Welp, Iíve certainly had my fair share of things to say, but Iím al caught up now, looking forward to more!

Loving the trip report! The drawings are hilarious!! The road trip was a riot. I once drove from SoCal to New Orleans and Texas steals the feeling from you that you might be getting anywhere. And a tumbleweed bigger than my car almost took us out. Also I lived in northern Arizona for a while and have witnessed the moth storms. So very weird and creepy. The insects took turns being plauge-like. One year everywhere we drove we squashed grasshoppers.

Can't wait for the rest. Really one of the funniest I have read.

EDIT: As some of you have questioned what a mongoose is I am now doubting that it was one. If anyone knows what else it could have been please feel free to chime in!
It definitely wasn't a mongoose unless it had escaped from AK, as the mongoose is not native to the US.

Based on the pic that you posted (even though it was not an actual pic of the animal you saw) it most likely would have been a river otter.

I'M BACK AND NOT DEAD!!!!

I'm so sorry everyone!! Just had a crazy crazy crazy amazing month and NO INTERNET until today due to us moving. But now I'm all wired up again and ready to rock!!! A real update will be up tomorrow but in the meantime here is some real life fun!!

So basically this last month we moved into my sister's house as they're off to London, I got in a car crash, We were harassed non stop by our crazy (ex) landlord until we were forced to take legal action, I had wedding singer rehearsals almost every week night until 11...oh and WE BOOKED OUR TRIP!!! YAYYYY!!! All paid for and good to go!!!!!


(we are flying via new zealand to save some cash )

YAYYYYYYY!!!!!!

So the plan is (if anyone is interested) to land in LA on the 19th with Josh and have 4 days there and some fun at Disneyland (EEK), then drive up to Walnut Creek to spend Christmas with his family THEN drive to VEGAS for a week for New Years (ARGHHH) and THEN on the 4th of January I fly to Florida and meet Bek, her sister Ash and our friend Caitlin there for a week (ARGGGHHHHH) and THEN we all fly to New York City to have a week there (ARGGGGGHHHHH) before flying home to Sydney on the 19th of January!!!!!

That's right! A whole month of amazingness!! And I'm still visiting my sister in September and seeing EURODISNEY!!!!
That's 3 castles in 4ish months!! WHAT??

I am so excited I feel sick!
You know that feeling????
Gahhhh it's such a great feeling!!

Bek and I have had several planning sessions already and she is so excited to see WDW when it's not super crowded and a million degrees! Oh and it will be nice to fly there this time rather than drive nonstop however I'm sure there will still be crazy adventures a plenty!



(Sometimes we plan as bunnies)

I've also been scoping out a suitcase because the last 3 I have owned were super cheap and have all somehow broken and had their wheels and legs falling off in awkward places.
These are the beauties I've settled on!



OOh I almost forgot!! We are staying at AOA this time and after exploring it last time I CAN'T WAIT!!

Also in Vegas we are staying at The Monte Carlo which is the same place we stayed when we got married there



If anyone has any accom recommendations for NYC we are wide open! We just want to be close to the action and not spend the earth

So I hope I am forgiven for my lack of dis-boarding! I find it really challenging on my iphone for some reason so I'm very happy that our net is back on!
I hope everyone is doing fabulously and I'm excited to spend all tonight (well.. after rehearsal) catching up on all the updates I've missed!

Ahhhhh I hate things like that!!! Seems like they happen in bars a lot! That was a nice save though!! Haha it would be a lot easier if we didn't turn bright red and get even more awkward

Wedding Singer is so much fun!! Opens on the 12th of March so it's creeping up! AHHHHH TICKETS IN HAND I FEEL SICK!!!!!!


I remember that Twister attraction from back in the day. I thought it was cool too! I will now refer to that movie as "Helz and her windy crew" so thanks for that.

Yes please do! Clearly that should have been the real name for the movie!!Much catchier!

Wow, I didn't know they had a Mel's at Universal! Must be an homage to the famous one in Hollywood. It's the same 50's Americana theme which I LOVE. When I have a place of my own I really want a 50's kitchen!

Yeah we always eat there! I love the one in Hollywood!
Ahh I want a 50s kitchen too! With a checked black and white floor!
And when in the kitchen everyone has to wear poodle skirts and rollerskates... too far?


POOR BEK LOL. Oh man. She goes out of her comfort zone and look what happens. I quite enjoy your artistic rendering of her embarrassment though, I gotta say.

Oh Bek!! She recovered well but she went back to her comfort zone with her tail between her legs. Damn tourists

I know!!! She was so red after that! And we kept seeing them around the park. So awkward!!!

Just thought I should share...a large part of Twister was filmed near where I live. I used to pass by one of the houses frequently, I wonder if it's still there?? They needed extras while they were in the area and my brother got hired for a day. There was to be a scene at the beginning of Bill Paxton in the TV studio and my brother was a cameraman or something in that scene. Too bad for him it got cut!

That is so cool!!! I seriously love that movie! That would have been so exciting! You should go and see if the house is still there!
I always feel so bad for the extras, or even characters that end up being cut out. I would have been gutted

Hahah, your Twister obsession is perfect! I've never seen the movie (I'M SORRY) but I really do remember seeing commercials for it.

Omg, poor Bek. Hopefully soon she'll meet a cute non-foreign and very-English speaking guy.
Haha I just posted about it again I know BUT it's booked now so I needed to share excitement again!!! ARGH! You should just come in December and be our friends

ALMOST as sweaty as DTD...almost

What? ok ok put it on your list of movies to watch. It's a classic!!

We will try again this trip for Bek, but maybe we will focus our hunt more in World Showcase!!

Poor Bek!!! Oh my gosh, how embarrassing.

I love the mummy too! Shame that my mummy didn't (sorry couldn;t resist!) It really shoots off so unexpectedly though! Poor mum got quite the fright!!

I know!! Poor Bek!! She is so wonderful though, I'm sure that foreign boy is still kicking himself for not having the english skills to follow through.

To quote the Twister movie in our house is absoutely normal - COW! Another COW - same cow!! Great stuff!
ARGHH I KNOW!! haha so excited that is booked now that I had to post about it again but hey, who can contain this much excitement?? I'm excited to see 3 castles in 4 months. Think I can retire after that as it's pretty much the peak of my castle seeking career.

She is a quick thinker!! I would have just stood there awkwardly

YES YES best moment of the movie!!! I love your household!!

I will I will! She is quite the legend in my books for that quick thinking!


What excellent news about multiple Disney adventures on the horizon! Hopefully this means you also have more hilarious trip reports in your (and our) future?

ARGHHHHHHHH! YES! So after this one I'll do my Sept trip with Darcy, then it will be time for Eurodisney then the tripapalooza in December. Get ready for trip reports galore

Sorry about the drama such as car crashes and landlord legal action, but I'm glad you're back and not dead.

I think you read the NYC portion of my current trip report, when my wife and daughter spent a few days there. They stayed at the Manhattan Club using DVC points. I don't know what it would cost cash-wise (probably pricey), but it was definitely close to the action. Manhattan Club location The TR may also give you some ideas of things to do. (And mentioning it here gives me an opportunity for a shameless plug )

Great to 'hear' from you!

Your trip to the USA in December/January sounds amazing! I am very jealous... when DH and I went to NYC we stayed at the New Yorker hotel, on 34th Street opposite Madison Square Gardens - we got a pretty good deal on it (about $250 a night which seemed reasonable compared to a lot of the other hotels I looked at!), room was small but clean & hotel in a great location

And... I think our trips to WDW may overlap... as I might have signed up for the WDW half marathon in January !!

NOW, Iím here and ready to roll, thank you work for having nothing to do! Lol.

Cliff and luna bars are definitely a favorite staple of mine! Theyíre usually what I bring with me down to Disney to eat in the morning! Saves money and precious rope drop time!

Luna bars are seriously so wonderful!! I miss them so bad here! I'm always getting josh's mum to send me some...and cheetos...as a treat because we have NOTHING like that here!

Dear god moth city sounds absolutely horrible! That is seriously impressive that the wallet and pillow were still there! Thatís insane! Your hitchhiker story reminds me of some looney toons movie I was terrified as a child thakns to them picking upa hitchhiker that had a chainsaw and I think it was Daffy that was all ďheís gonna kill usĒ. That is quite the ordeal!!

Moth City was disgusting! I know! It was such a crazy movie moment! Still can't believe they didn't fly off!!! I still don't understand who picked him up! Who would pick up someone like that!?!?

Wow, you guys had quite the adventure just getting to Disney, I mean, I understand why security precautions are in place, but really, thatís insane!! Glad everything worked out in the end!
Ahaha road trip shenanigans, gotta love the over tired hyper crazyness! The trust falls seriously sound hilarious, I may have to instigate that next road trip!

Yeah I guess we look pretty suspicious?? Oh well it made for some good stories! YES please add trust falls to your next roadtrip and document it! Seriously makes everything better

Your drawings are awesome, just sayin! Also the awesome gas station looks awesome! Showers?! How cool!

Haha thanks!! That gas station really takes the cake. I feel like writing them a letter to voice my appreciation of their shower fast pass system!!

Yay for finally being DISNEY DAY! After such a long road trip Iím sure it was very appreciated! Ahahahaah the amount of times that Paige and I cried over our last trip is seriously insane, like, we actually cried at least once a day, thereís just so much magic happening everywhere itís awesome! Thank god for sunnies otherwise everyone would see our make up streaked faces! Ah! The amount of times Iíve elbowed a kid in the head completely by accident because theyíre way too close is astounding, like, back up!

DISNEY DAYYYYY! It felt SO good!!! Even if we were still tired and delusional from the trip. Crying is a MUST. All the happiness just needs to leak out of your face somehow.
Dang kids and their lack of personal space. Actually adults too... some people just need a swift elbow to the head.

Ahahaha, how funny about Disnep, I mean, I always thought the D was some weird G thing going on there, but thatís just awesome! That looks like a pretty good first day in MK, I gotta say itís the best place for people watching!!

We still call it Disnep... just not around Bek....as she is embarrassed

I have to say, Epcot is always the hottest day of the trip, I donít know why, but when youíre in WS, itís just DEATH BY SUN every dang time.

IT'S ALWAYS SO HOT THERE!!! Whyyyyy?? So confused

BAHA! The ridiculous amounts of round abouts, thatís a pretty good summary of Australia right there! I did go to seaworld up in the gold coast, that was pretty awesome!

Yeahhhh it's ok, but after you've been to the states it's a little lame in comparison. But hey....those roundabouts....watch out!

Lol, no oneís good at counting and math in the morning, itís okay! Haha. I have yet to do KRR, and donít think I do, I know Iíd somehow be the one that gets soaked, boourns to the crabby pants on the ride! I am, by far, one of those people that starts the trend of ringing the bells, I do it every ride, and thereís usually a bunch of kids that realize itís okay and then want to do it thanks to me, baha! Your ride on dinosaur sounds like pretty much every time I go on it! I hate that thing!

Booourns to her exactly! Silly cranky pants!
Noooooooo you start the bell ringing????
haha nah it's usually not too bad, it's just when you get stuck there furrrrever and the line isn't moving...
Dinosaur will probably always terrify me. It's ok, I'll deal.


Ahahah, single rider line adventures galore! These stories are great! Wow that sucks about having to walk from the employee entrance! Ugh! Lol!! Hilarious fliriting story! Thatís awesomely funny!

Single rider stories are the best! There are always so many crazy people for some reason! I love it though Bring on the crazies I say.
Yes. That was NOT fun first thing in the morning! Damn fake entrance!!
Ohhhhh flirting with the non english speakers is not her forte


Welp, Iíve certainly had my fair share of things to say, but Iím al caught up now, looking forward to more!



Hurrah!!! That was fun! Now I'll add more so we can do this again
