I have two trips planned to the World of Disney, one for Disneyland in July and one for Walt Disney World in August!

I decided that I needed to do something to help pass the time before I go... besides all the end of year stuff I will be doing in my classroom, like report cards!

So I've decided to write (mostly show in pictures) a trip report from my August 2009 solo trip! I hope no one minds!

Cast... ME

I was an early 30 ish woman at the time, teaching at the same school I'm at now, but I was teaching grade 4 French Immersion at the time. I'm now teaching French Immersion Kindergarten and it's a lot of fun to watch them grow and learn all year.

I am single, (and was at the time), but I have 9 brothers and sisters and 16 nieces and nephews, so I'm never bored! In 2009, I think I only had 13 though...

I love all things Disney, reading, photography, traveling and being involved in my church/with my faith. They are all tied in together! I do love the Harry Potter books, and I've recently started reading a series of books by a local author, Patti Larsen, called Hayle Coven, and I can't put them down!

I live about 3 minutes from the airport, but I can't remember who drove me that morning (It was almost 4 years ago!). It was likely my mother since she gets up early in the summer. Our airport is extremely small, pretty well only one gate to leave from.

The sun was rising while I was waiting to board the plane.

DSC01740 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Since the airport is so small, most of the planes are small. I had to 'skycheck' my carryon bag. I prepare for that and put the things I'll need for the flight in a separate bag in my carryon though, so I'm good! My bag is the red one.

Looks like some passengers are still walking up to the plane too.


DSC01744 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Charlottetown from the air.


DSC01745 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01747 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I love how accurate maps are. This totally looks like the shape of PEI on a map. How did cartographers do it so long ago?


DSC01751 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

After two uneventful flights, I had landed and was getting onto this:


DSC01752 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

These look so awesome from the outside, but I don't like that you can't see out as easily from the inside.


DSC01753 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Let's keep in mind it was only 11:43 am. I think my flight was supposed to have landed at about 11:30, so that's not bad timing at all!

I was sitting in the middle of the bus, so no sign pictures!

We stopped at All Star Sports first. See what I mean about the windows?


DSC01771 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Am I happy to be at Walt Disney World again?


DSC01775 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Look at the time! My flight was scheduled to land at 11:28 and It was 12:23, and I was already at my hotel! That made me really happy since the first Golden Girls trip in July we stopped and ate at the airport, then I lost my travel companions... (It's a LONG story!) and we didn't get to Port Orleans French Quarter until 2 or 3 (I can't remember if I'd changed the time on our cameras) and we were on the same flight. 1.5 or 2.5 hours later. Yucky!


DSC01777 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

That's enough for today I guess. I should get to sleep, big day tomorrow with a niece's 6th birthday party (including her party with friends... and they all go to my school.) and I have to get started on those report cards! I'll need to be awake for both of those!

After 3 very short trips, one of which didn't even involve any parks, I was ready for a big trip! And when I say short, I mean MICRO short. My first trip was supposed to be Sunday-Friday, but because of flight issues I landed at about noon on Monday and left very early Friday morning. 3.5 days. My second trip was supposed to be Saturday night-Friday, but because of flight delays it ended up Monday at noon until earlyish Friday. 4.5 days. My third trip was a shopping trip that was only 2 nights and no parks. This was going to be a big trip and it was lovely. The only problem was the fact that I couldn't stop buying Disney things! I loved shopping after that short shopping trip!

This was going to be longer, and I was all set to spend 8 glorious days at Walt Disney World!

I had done online check in and my room was ready. I had decided not to visit any parks since I'd gotten up so early, so I was going to eat, explore the resort and head to Downtown Disney.

Tim McGraw and Reba McEntire had done a concert in PEI that summer... With two Disney trips, I had decided against going, but I sure wish I had! I love both of their music.


DSC01786 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I got a king size accessible room. I did not request it at all and I was surprise to see it when I went to my room. I had thought about letting them know I was willing to change if someone needed the room, but I'm sorry to say that I never did that.


DSC01788 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I really should have used my big camera and not my point and shoot for the inside shots at least. They are a little blurry.


DSC01789 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

As you can see, I had an adjoining room again. I tend to get those a lot.


DSC01790 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I want hooks like these...


DSC01791 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Eugh.... funny how far I've come photography wise since 2009! These are bad pictures!


DSC01792 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01793 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Mickey towel!


DSC01794 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01797 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

More little towel animals!


DSC01798 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

The carpet.


DSC01799 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

More to come! I need to upload some more pictures to Flickr. Ooops!

I left off while touring my room.


DSC01800 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01802 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I want a table like this.


DSC01803 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01805 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Close up of the bed spread.


DSC01806 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

After taking all my pictures, I decided I wanted to eat. It had been a while since I'd had a real meal (probably cereal at 4:30 or 5am). So off I went to the food court. This was during the stay 4 nights get 3 free deal, so I splurged on the QSDP. It was my first time on the meal plan. So what do I do while walking to the food court? Take pictures of course!

My room number.

A good friend of mine is a firefighter, I took this picture to show him I knew where it was... right outside my room!


DSC01808 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01809 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Literally!

Disney details...


DSC01810 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

My view:


DSC01811 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

So pretty!


DSC01812 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01813 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01814 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I took this picture to show how big the bush is behind me. I don't think I did it justice because it was still a couple of feet taller than me.


DSC01815 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I was in building 10, quite close to the food court.


DSC01816 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01817 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01818 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01819 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

And my meal...


DSC01820 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I think this might have been my only burger of the whole trip. I could be wrong, but we'll find out when I'm done posting all my pictures! I buy the refillable mug each time I go, and I've even bought some used, so now I have about 11 or so. I think I gave some away too! I love getting them, but this time I'm not so sure it will be worth it because I don't drink pop (soda to a lot of you USA folks) very often anymore. I still might though because sometimes there are other things too. The food was good, and I know I got that brownie for dessert MANY times. I loved it. My friend has celiac and I tell her that the gluten free brownies are better than regular brownies, and easier to make!


DSC01821 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

The ceiling.


DSC01822 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01823 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I'm almost at the limit for pictures, so I will stop here for today.

Coming up next: More All Star Music pictures!

You're in luck. I decide to procrastinate some more and keep working on this. It's making me look at my pictures again and get excited about my upcoming trips!

After my filling lunch, I decided to browse the gift shop. On our shopping trip in July, I became a Disneyholic shopper. Totally. I struggle with NOT shopping at Disney. I know everything is so expensive, but it's all so darn cute with Mickey heads and princesses and fairies and everything! It's now hard to resist. My first trip, I bought a Mickey hat and a hat for my Dad. My second trip I spend a little more because I had my nephew with me, but still not much. Let's just say that since then, I've had to pay extra at the border on my way home on most of my trips!


DSC01824 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01825 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01826 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01827 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Now, when I am in Walt Disney World or Disneyland, I take pictures of things I am tempted to buy. This way I TRY not to buy everything I want, and I can come back and find it later if I still really, really, really want it. Because I'll always WANT it...


DSC01828 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I won't post all of my temptations here, but just click on one of my pictures to browse through the others on Flickr if you are feeling the need to look at Disney merchandise.


DSC01830 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01832 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I LOVE H2O products. Ever since staying at the Grand Floridian, I love the sea marine scent most. But, there are no real stores that sell H2O stuff here in PEI, so I have to order it on line and it is pricey to ship here. Oh well. I do sometimes find some at Winners though, but never my Disney smell!


DSC01839 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Back outside to wander around a little bit.


DSC01841 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

DSC01845 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01846 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

If I stay at ASMU again, I think I will ask for the Broadway section. I don't know what it is about it, but I really like it.

More hotel pictures!

DSC01863 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I don't think I've mentioned it yet on this TR, but I adore palm trees. I have a dream of buying a palm tree and keeping it at home in the house. I don't think it will survive though, as I live in Canada!


DSC01864 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Finally, a shot I actually like. (The others I like for the memories... this shot I actually like for the shot).


DSC01865 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Disney takes such good care of their landscaping.


DSC01867 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I went back to my room and decided that I would head to Downtown Disney to see how long it would take me to give in to my temptations!

Yes, I take pictures of everything.

I was happy to not be sitting over there!

On my way to Downtown Disney! I had fallen in love with it the month before during our shopping trip. I now make sure to go at least twice a trip. And eat there. You'll see which restaurant I loved at this point soon. I have since found another restaurant that I love just as much.

Passing by my old home. I can't wait to be back! Around 75 days.


DSC01882 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I love these little fountains.


DSC01883 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Disney and Christmas. Sigh... what else can I say?


DSC01888 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01889 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

It's a Small World anyone?

DSC01900 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01906 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Like what I did with the mugs?


DSC01910 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Again there are tons more merchandise pictures if you click on one of the pictures you can see the others.

Off to Mickey's Pantry! Another fave.


DSC01911 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I don't think I took too many pictures, because I mostly bought what I wanted!


DSC01912 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Then on to TrenD.

I love World of Disney! It's so huge with so many different things to buy!


DSC01937 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

A blurry skeleton. I think I'll try to get a better one next visit.


DSC01938 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Hee hee hee


DSC01939 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I had my sister take pictures of the Stitch (where he spits water out at you) about a month before this trip here... She kept stepping back when he'd spit, then move back to where he'd get her again! It was so funny. I had to actually tell her where the water was coming from. I also took her in through the skeleton doors, and she screamed when they moved. I laughed and laughed.... and laughed and laughed... A few olderish ladies were laughing at me laughing at her!


DSC01940 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01941 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I took these for my nephews... Not that I would buy it for them, but I'd show them a picture! For a few of them, they don't think Disney was cool, so they came over to my side a little more when they knew there were (toy) guns there!

One of my nephews really loved Stitch for a while... I took him in 2007 and he kept losing his Stitch Mickey ears hat and the CM at DQ even knew it was his the second time he lost it!

Oh my gosh! I want this now! I don't remember seeing it!

One day I will have a Mickey bathing suit.

On to Pooh Corner!


DSC01954 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

So cute!


DSC01955 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I really love Thomas Kinkade's Disney pictures! And obviously I'm at Art of Disney now... I love that store.

And Jim Shore... I love Jim Shore's Disney pieces too.


DSC01965 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I finally bought one, but in Quebec City! For March Break I went to Ste. Anne de Beaupre and Quebec City for a few days and found a Christmas Store... they had Disney Jim Shore items! I bought Snow White. She's been growing on me since Once Upon a Time.

Only two Kingdom Keeper books out!


DSC01967 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I bought the Stitch one... to bring home to my nephew. He's 18 now and doesn't use it!


DSC01969 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

See the pricing? I wonder how much they are now...


DSC01970 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


DSC01971 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I sat on a little bench back there by the boats to drink my slushie. I made a little video talking about what I was doing, but I was very deliberate in NOT showing my mug... Don't know why I thought my nephew would see the video before I gave him the cup!

I went back to my room to relax because I would be up for an early ADR the next morning!

I go up nice and early and probably had a little bite to eat. I am the kind of person that needs to eat first thing, including having a light breakfast before going out to breakfast!

I took a few pictures of the pool when I got up.

They really make me wish I'd taken more night shots of all my hotels. It's my goal this summer! Of at least Pop and Art of Animation.

Of course... these are through my window too, so I'll be outside this summer when I take them!


IMG_7624 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


IMG_7625 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


IMG_7626 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

And like a good little disboards reader as I am, I took a picture of the front and back of my ticket!


IMG_7633 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

When I left for the bus, it was starting to get light. And I do take pictures of garbage cans, but usually only at a Disney park.


DSC01985 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

DSC01987 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Here comes my bus!


DSC01990 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

It had rained on the way to the park, but MK was in a magic bubble and it was not raining when we reached the park!


DSC01992 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Oops... maybe the driver was just cleaning off his windshield!


DSC01993 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

(OT: Which reminds me... I teach kindergarten and one day one of my students told me we were going to be staying inside because of the windshield! When it's -20 or colder, we don't go outside for recess and that day the windchill was at least at -20. It still makes me chuckle!)

Nope, looks like rain!


DSC01995 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

But no rain here!


IMG_7634 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


IMG_7635 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I went over to the breakfast line and waited a few more minutes. I watched a CM get a few things set up for opening.


IMG_7636 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


IMG_7638 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

My first monorail sighting!


IMG_7639 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Adds for some cute things.


IMG_7640 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Look! I'm inside the park and it's not open yet! The people on the right were not allowed in because they didn't have any ADRs!


IMG_7641 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


IMG_7643 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Oh, but every time I enter a Disney park I get so excited and emotional. It's just too amazing to actually be there. And it happens even before I see the castle.


IMG_7644 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


IMG_7645 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I am guessing that I'm at my limit of pictures, so I'll stop here for now.

ETA: I was close! I was actually 2 pictures over my limit.

WARNING! You do NOT need to watch this. I debated and debated whether or not I should post this video, but I figure I may as well. I am not ashamed of my dorky ways. You will see my little expressions and things I do, I think I'm supposed to be a stage actress or something (or a kindergarten teacher full of expression!)


And a note on the houses: My sisters had started going (never when I could go though) and staying in houses, so I was very keen to show them that this is way better....

Ok... here we go!

And I'm not sure why I did my hair like that at all!

Thanks! If you like the photos, check out my other (newer!) trip reports. They are full of pictures, and some way better ones!

Reba is just awesome. I love her music (I love buying her best of CDs or the number one hits... I think I also have three Christmas CDs...) and the TV show Reba was a hit with me as well!

For some reason this is the only TR that showed up on your signature, but I am on my phone and I have noticed not everything on DIS always shows up. I will have to seek them out when I am on my computer.

It's funny, as big as Reba was once upon a time, you don't run into many fans these days. Of course it could be that I don't know a lot of people who listen to country. I still love me some Reba. I love her Christmas CDs. I can't listen to "The Greatest Man I Never Knew" without balling.
