Yaaaaaawn. Oh my. That was an epic journey (not my MOST epic but ranks right up there.)

Our flight was supposed to leave at 8:50. First delay was 10 minutes then pushed back to 9:30, then again. Then we were told we could go back and get our luggage at baggage claim and recheck if we needed to; 5 minutes later, they said we were cleared to leave! (All those people who left to get stuff from their luggage?!) We board the plane and sit around while they try to find the missing folks who went off for their luggage. Finally up in the air and get the monster to admit she's tired and get her to go to sleep -- after thoroughly reading the safety card. (She was never a "fall asleep at random" child.) The flight attendant said that was the first time a safety card's ever been read.

We were up in the air for what seemed like ages (yapping non-stop about Disney ) when hubbo checks the flight tracker. We were JUST passing Atlanta?! Then we had to circle St. Louis multiple times because the storms were close to our left and another storm moving through Chicago meant we weren't cleared to head into Chicago yet. Another half-hour of circling and the pilot came on and said they were heading toward Chicago but may have to return to St. Louis to refuel if the storm hadn't moved out. This time, we skirted the storms quite closely. (Back in my young and crazy days of being in love and our long-distance relationship, I was flying out from Baltimore to Chicago in a similar situation although that time we were a bit too close to the storms and lightning struck our wing. Guess I'm old-hat at this now? ) Our pilots were total ROCK STARS: Cat-and-mouse with the storms and probably traffic control, coupled with the smoothest landing we've ever had at Midway. We got in shortly before 1 a.m.

When we got off the plane, there were crowds of people waiting to welcome home Honor Flight (WWII Veterans) folks who had been delayed from a visit to D.C. Bands played, people cheered. It was very sweet.

All the havoc from the storms totally confused the ground staff at Midway so no one knew what was going on with the luggage. After waiting around for an hour, we got our bags and had an interesting cab ride home -- the guy was FALLING ASLEEP! Never again. We'll drive to the airport from now on.

Shew. Shame we didn't book an earlier flight yesterday, it would've been canceled and we could've gone BACK to Disney.

Gotta go get cleaned up and buy some food for this bachelor's pad of a house! Back later.

Miss: So glad you made it home safe and sound! Sounds like kind of a nerve wracking journey!! I get nervous flying, so I would not have been good in that situation! Will we get a mini TR??

Jeanette: Thanks for starting up this new meeting place for us all! So you are calling tomorrow to check on RPC?? Or did you do it already!! I am wondering about Amanda too.

DznyCrzy: I was apprehensive about going to BC too, as we also love the Poly, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved it there! Good luck with your decision!

Linda: Sounds like a nice 2 week trip in September! Yay!

Alysa: I love your logic in regards to more trips and AP's! I will be using similar logic on DH, minus the DVC though!

Janet: Thanks for all your hard work here too!

Kook: I love that orange bird pic, our new antenna topper is the Orange Bird too!!

Ginny: Where are you staying now??? I am lost!

Candace: Sorry you had some wacky dreams! So August is it? I understand the finances thing. We totally have blown our budget already for this month with some unexpected things too.

Well, hope everyone is having a lovely day....hi Septembergirl, Koh, Melissa, Iheart, SueM, Magic, Sheila, Willow, and all the other newcomers!!

Jen

Ugh! Poor thing - I just read her report while the baby had his nap. When you look forward to these trips so much to spend time with your favourite people it is so hard when things don't go the way you hoped.

And, we should book next year's trip before the Annual pass expires so we are going to do a week next year for the Tower of Terror run. Plus we had such an awful year last year and didn't go at all. But then that will be it for quite a while.
Alysa... pretty soon in this Disney Math they will be "paying" you too go! whatever works getting back to the Mouse quicker is good

Fingers crossed for a suite!

Nope... haven't... Agree with you though on the prices being outrageous... Philadelphia is ridiculous as well.

This was a surprise for my niece, but little ol me can't keep her big mouth shut.

A big warm hello to everyone else! I see a anniversary! WOW! Sue and MM! CONGRATS!


Someone mentioned trying to chose between the Poly and the BWI. No doubt, the POLY!!!!

The rooms are almost ALL REHABBED and they are very, very nice. I know, just stayed in them in April. Plus, Poly will start that DVC work next year, so it'll be a mess. So, I would grab the chance to stay there NOW! That's was one of the reasons we did. And I am so glad we did. We had a wonderful stay there.
LuLu'sMom, so happy you had a great trip in April!! I would love to stay at the Poly... it is Sam's favorite place... we love Ohana's (dinner and breakfast)...

That's exactly what we ended up doing. I changed the ADR for RR to 1:15. This way it'll give us a little wiggle room and we aren't stressing about not making it on time. Once we're done eating, we'll just head to the MK. If I'm thinking right, we'll have to go to a resort first, right? I didn't think they had buses at DtD that go to the parks, but I could be wrong.

I know, right? The DH set my alarm for 12:30 and I didn't wake up until it went off. As soon as I got up, I checked my Farmville, did a little school work. By the time I got here, it had gone from page 3 to 7 since I was on last.

HELLO!! Kids are tired from our pool playdate, so a perfect time to catch up on the Dis

First and foremost Jeanette for our new thread And thank you Janet for keeping up with all of our ever changing resort plans

Miss - glad you made it back safe and sound!!!! I like the change to BWV for F&W, makes sense

Linda - good thinking on the Sep trip instead of of Oct/Nov

Alysa - Oh I like the plans for the upcoming trips, totally makes sense if you have the DVC points, APs, and miles

DznyCrzy - if it werent for my kids, I would stay at YC every time! I really cant explain what the draw is for me at the Epcot resorts, I just love it! If you have the itch, go for it

Candace - I think the move to August makes sense given the circumstances. And as for DH and the Sept trip Happy early anniversary

TaraPA - I dont know of a car service for Sanford, but it is pretty far from WDW and the transp fee could be pretty high. I hope it all works out

LuLu'sMom - 2 days.....

SueM - Happy Anniversary (a day late)

Ginny - waiting to hear what you have done

Heather - loving the pics, especially all the drinks Glad to hear you are having a great time!!

Willows909 - I dozed in and out during the second and third OT, it was brutal, bummer loss

Jen - Hi my friend

I know I am missing so many, just having a hard time keeping my eyes open. So and to everyone I missed and a big to all the new comers!

Melissa

Oh and thank you to everyone for letting me know that it is not just my DH....so annoying He once ok'd the branch manager's vacation week and then totally forgot about it and freaked out when he didn't show up for work for a few days and kept calling him and his wife until they finally told him that he had ok'd the time

Okay off to close my eyes for a bit

You could always record these conversations with him, and just play it back.

Have a good nap.

Right now I'm waiting on a call back from the DH, so I can't take a quiz. I just know if I start taking it, he'll call. Since it's a timed quiz, I don't want to use any of the time talking to him.

DznyCrzy - Tough choice. I love both the Poly and the BC so I don't think you can lose. It might be a good idea to get one last Poly stay in before DVC moves in though.

Mousemommy - Happy Anniversary! Ewww to the bug dreams! I hate those so much. I hope you sleep better tonight. August will be awesome. And GF RPC will be worth the wait!

hstrickland - LOVE the pix

gwynne - So it's all BWI then? While I do love my splits, there is something to be said for unpacking and settling in. And you can't go wrong with BWI!

babyberger - Men! Hope you had fun at the pool play date!

Lulu'sMom - Enjoy WL CL. It's on my short list to try out in 2014! I do agree thay YC CL isn't quite on par with the others, but I still love the convenience with lots of kids.

pas - Crashing the system. It's what all the cool kids are doing these days. Love the new split for now What's this about a minitrip????

Sue - Happy Anniversary!

Alysa - I get it with burning up the AP's! Sorry you had a rotten year last year. That was my 2011.

Grumpy Grandma - Yay for moving up the fall trip! It must feel good to know you can go without stressing about wedding plans.

Miss - Glad you made it safe and sound. What a mess! I was thinking about you last night and hoping you got a bonus Disney night. Ah well, at least you made it home safe. Any damage at home to deal with today?


wookie - Good luck on the quiz. I think you made a good change with Raglan Rd. You will have to go to a resort first before MK. You could always boat to POR or walk to SSR and head out from there. Or else bus to CR and walk over.

Well, better head off and get dinner started. Happy Thursday Ladies. Weekend is almost here!

I'll be on vacation, so I have a more legitimate excuse for falling behind for a week. Play nice and BOLD those changes so I can see them more clearly after my vacation beverages.

One of my favorite spots for relaxation......




The weather has been perfect and the drinks have been plentiful!!! I have sampled them all.....



Getting ready to eat some breakfast then head over to Isla Mujeres to swim with the dolphins.

Hope everyone has a beautiful day!
Heather
Hola Chica! Four limes? Yum-O! But, your #1 looks hardly sampled. Was this just breakfast?

Had a split stay booked at the YC CL and the WL CL.

Well, with 2 DAYS before our vacation, I changed my reservations, again!

We're talking no YC CL at all! Going to the WL CL directly! LOL!
After reading all about the Murphy's fiasco plus my yearning to go back to WDW's best kept CL "secret" , I HAD to make the change. But then again, you all understand, right?
WOOHOO!

YC is a great resort, but their CL is not so great! Not horrible, just doesn't stack up to the others. Even BC CL fares much better to the YC CL!

Love, love, love the WL CL! Hope we can keep it a secret! LOL
I agree about the Regatta Club. Compared with WL, the lounge and seating area is tiny and has no view from the lounge. I also disliked looking at the dirty, pebbly roof every time we walked the hallways, when the window wasn't obstructing the view.

Then we were told we could go back and get our luggage at baggage claim and recheck if we needed to; 5 minutes later, they said we were cleared to leave! (All those people who left to get stuff from their luggage?!) We board the plane and sit around while they try to find the missing folks who went off for their luggage. Finally up in the air and get the monster to admit she's tired and get her to go to sleep -- after thoroughly reading the safety card. (She was never a "fall asleep at random" child.) The flight attendant said that was the first time a safety card's ever been read.

We were up in the air for what seemed like ages (yapping non-stop about Disney ) when hubbo checks the flight tracker. We were JUST passing Atlanta?! Then we had to circle St. Louis multiple times because the storms were close to our left and another storm moving through Chicago meant we weren't cleared to head into Chicago yet. Another half-hour of circling and the pilot came on and said they were heading toward Chicago but may have to return to St. Louis to refuel if the storm hadn't moved out. This time, we skirted the storms quite closely. (Back in my young and crazy days of being in love and our long-distance relationship, I was flying out from Baltimore to Chicago in a similar situation although that time we were a bit too close to the storms and lightning struck our wing. Guess I'm old-hat at this now? ) Our pilots were total ROCK STARS: Cat-and-mouse with the storms and probably traffic control, coupled with the smoothest landing we've ever had at Midway. We got in shortly before 1 a.m.

When we got off the plane, there were crowds of people waiting to welcome home Honor Flight (WWII Veterans) folks who had been delayed from a visit to D.C. Bands played, people cheered. It was very sweet.

All the havoc from the storms totally confused the ground staff at Midway so no one knew what was going on with the luggage. After waiting around for an hour, we got our bags and had an interesting cab ride home -- the guy was FALLING ASLEEP! Never again. We'll drive to the airport from now on.

Shew. Shame we didn't book an earlier flight yesterday, it would've been canceled and we could've gone BACK to Disney.

Gotta go get cleaned up and buy some food for this bachelor's pad of a house! Back later.
Epic as in almost epic fail. This is one reason we always drive. I just can't handle the unpredictable and tortuous nature of flying anymore and they never stop at Sonic. Did DH offer to drive the cab? Are you posting a TR or did I miss that?

I've often thought of that when DH is snoring
