I think Midway is cheaper than O'Hare. SW traditionally goes into the smaller, cheaper airport if there are multiple airports in a city. Like they fly into Love Field in Dallas instead of DFW.

Midway is definitely cheaper than O'Hare and I guess that make sense. I guess I'll be spending more time at Midway.

Hmmm, What I want to know is what magazine Em's hiding behind that Natural Health magazine, especially given her recent Disney statue experiences.

Haha, I bet your selfies was better than mine are. But I do feel your pain. I am always impressed by those who are able to accomplish this feat so spectacularly. But you two just never seem to fail at getting a photography volunteer on a moments notice, so it probably doesn't really matter.

You are quite the little shill for tablet technology I must say.

Honestly, how is it possible that your TR's just keep getting even better? But they do!!!!!!

Yes, I have heard this… but how does that work with my Airtran points? I'm so confused by them at this point. I wish they would just merge everything together!!

Hmm…. what is this about your seat in the back?? Yet nothing was mentioned???? Hmmmmm….. did SOMEONE leave something behind? Did someone see your hidden message and demand to use the coupon?

Fancy plane! Very spiffy indeed! I usually watch comedy tv on the way to Disney. It almost keeps me excited but without watching any Disney, that way when I get on the DME bus it's a whole immersive experience.

Red face vsacation nails! yeah!

I LOVE your shopping/ haircut ritual- it sounds exactly something my mom and I would do- but we get our nails done and call them "vacation nails" before a trip..haha. Anyway- looking forward to reading about this trip!

Ha ha! That darn working interfering with fun.

We'll eventually see us step foot in a park! Thus far we've made it to MCO!

Please tell me your ankle healed quickly! At least you have a good story behind breaking yours.

Also love the Disney snacks... Maybe I should pick some up in DL for my trip to WDW a few weeks later! We tend to ask for extra of the SWA snacks lol. I was thinking of actually trying to pack a dinner for us but as I will be working 7 days in a row before heading to WDW I'm not sure that will be possible!

And yes! Hoping you got put on the right bus this time!
Paula you are paying attention.... you'll have to hang on for a while. I didn't just throw that out there and forget - yet.

I like SW snacks but there's nothing like a genuine Disney snack for travel. I'm sure our seat mates were jealous! Pick some up at World of Disney or any park store.

The snacks look delicious - Hmmm... Which reminds me - I still have a Mickey Rice Krispie treat here somewhere - ... Or I did anyways???

And you girls are so cute when you travel... I am a hot mess - maybe it's because I need to travel more? Hahahaha...

Boy - I sure hope you get the right bus!

D~
Hi D~! I suppose I should be more excited about an on-time and fully functioning plane than it smelling nice and new.

My DD introduced me to Tangled... LOVE IT!

ha ha!! If you really have a Mickey Krispie treat that was forgotten until now that is awesome. I definitely don't lose track of my Disney treats. They are consumed post haste!

Awww thanks. Not our best looks but you are kind.

Stay tuned...

Southwest is the best with the bag situation! Who wants to pay for bags? Not this girl!

The coffee cake from Starbucks is great! Of course you would choose it.

I was just at your home airport in April! Love that it's such a small airport.

Ooohhh, that is a spiffy new plane! Purty.

Oh, and to answer your question, you can call me Dani or Danielle, whatever you prefer. Just don't call me late for dinner.
Hi Danielle! Exactly! Why pay for bags when you don't have to? The Mickey bag must have been made for looks and not functionality.

Was that your San Diego trip that you were at JW (OC) airport? I'm totally following your TR for that one.

Hi there Mr. MaxRebo! It was all right.

You are so funny! Oh my, the possibilities are endless for a Disney inspired ID Thief!

Hi there 25eels! Awesome that you know Tracy!!!! She was just here for the 1/2 marathon the day I broke my ankle! I was supposed to cheer her on but that didn't work out so well for me! I'm so glad that you are joining and reading! Welcome!!

Ugh to the holding pattern. So annoying when you know its time to land.

Very cool that you brought your own Disney snacks. I LOVE that! Nothing like really getting into the mood!

Yay for arriving!
Hi Mary Ellen! I would much rather have a short flight; however, if I have to be stuck on a plane as long as we are we may as well enjoy it.

I know! And to be that close and not be able to land. Don't they know I have plans???

Oh, and Tangled is 100% my "Flight-to-Disney" movie too!!
Hi ZehnJahren! Thank you so much for joining! I see that you've got a few TRs under your belt!

Midway must not be close to you. I fly American to/thru Chicago. We have family in the burbs.

Excellent in flight movie choice too!!

Hi Rachel! Argh! Sorry about your bag. That reminds me of ScottNY's bag that had a rip and it looked like the lining was a pair of boxer shorts hanging out.

I'm glad you are here.

I'm sad to hear your Mickey luggage didn't make it. We were close to buying it (at the airport gift shop, actually!) but decided against it. Now I'm kind of glad we did, we are definitely not delicate with our luggage.

Emily looks adorable in that pic in the plane!
See? Another SW fan and even better because you probably rack up free flights twice with the cc.

Oh yeahhh.... sorry to discourage anyone. I may just have had dumb luck with our bag.

Thanks!

I LOVE arriving at MCO - only problem for us is, we are then faced with the loooong line at immigration before we can finally get the party started
Looking forward to the next instalment
Yeah, I just wanted the movie to be over so I could watch Tangled! I figured Em would choose a Disney movie thus the options. Silly kid.

Once you get through immigration then you probably have a spring in your step!

Your DH probably has so much fun for two reasons: 1. he's with you, right? and 2. You probably plan things out and know all the fabulous places to dine! (I'll never forget your YSH review.)

Hi Rob! I can assure you it was only her pretty face behind the magazine. She was trying to avoid yet another photo that I was taking of her.

I think the key to good selfies is long arms! I'm not shy about asking for help in the absence of having my own personal photographer.

Oh you flatterer! I'm taking lessons from you. Just wait for my chapter called, "If this is a dream, I don't want to wake up but if I do, I better be standing in front of a castle!"

Someone jump in and help Christen.

Hi Hollyrose! Gotta love it! Those beauty rituals are important. Em used to get her nails done with me but now she won't go. I almost got some Minnie themed nails this time but backed out because I was in a hurry.

I'm very glad that you are joining. Thanks!

Oooh brand new plane! A very nice surprise!

That's a cute picture of both of you in your seats!

It made me smile reading about you drawing Mickey ears on everyone in the magazine while waiting to land!

Can't wait to find out if you got on the right bus! :-)

Wow, awesome new plane! And bonus that the flight attendant also doubles as trip photographer when needed, LOL. Great pic of the two of you!

I love Tangled, and it's loaded on my iPad for our upcoming trip. I watched it on the way last year too and agree it's a great "let's get fired up for Disney" movie.

Hope you were directed to the right bus this time!
