I have been lurking in your pre-trippie... but, had to speak up during your trippie! Welcome back, hope you had a GREAT time!

Oh, and my DH is in the printing business too... he is slowly getting reeled into Disneymania with the rest of us. We outnumber him!

Anxiously awaiting the next installment! Keep 'em coming!

Oh No Tracy, not a good way to start the trip.

As for the thought of Waldo wandering LAX, I am thinking what a great idea for a sitcom. Sort of like that Tom Hanks movie.

That plane ticket thing would have had me stressing out. I would have been a nervous wreck about until I had that ticket in my hand. I hope everything worked out eventually once you got to the airport.

Back to the day prior to our departure.

I had a few last minute things to pack and I was doing my final mental check list. I really had to squeeze things into my bag. Heck, I had the largest bag of them all and I still could just barely close it. I brought the scale over and BAM! The case was 4 pounds over the weight limit. Carp! I went back and did the whole suitcase shuffle, moving things here and moving things there. I ended up pulling another suitcase out and putting the really heavy things in it. Andy’s shoes weigh a ton and my make-up Caboodle, whilst fairly heavy still doesn’t compare to Lauralee’s, had to go into said suitcase. Everything was no longer squashed all together, but rather nice and happy with plenty of arm and leg room.



I decided to go ahead and print out all our boarding passes and get that out of the way and deliver those along with the lime FOCKER t-shirts to my brother. I printed their passes out just fine, but when I went to print ours it said, “Unable to access tickets, please check-in with an agent.” Hmmm…. ok, no big deal right. Maybe it was because we have small children? I dunno. I just let it roll off my back and continued on my merry way. We pulled the van into the garage and got all packed up, except for the last suitcase which held my morning essentials. It was getting late, the kids were in bed and thankfully asleep and I needed a shower and a happy dappy little pill to help me sleep. Off to sleep with Disney vacation dreams dancing in my head.

I woke up about 2:45am. I couldn’t sleep. Today was the day. I felt like Nemo waking Marlin for the first day of school! I was bouncy and shiny and happy as a clam. Or a clownfish. Anywho, I got ready and headed downstairs to try to print our tickets again. BINGO! It worked. Or so I thought. I noticed the printed said “Printing started. Page 1 of 5.” Excuse me, what? Page of 1 of 5? Uh, no. There should be 6 pages for 6 boarding passes for 6 people. I looked at the reservation and Andy was not listed. I tried to pull his name on flight list and he was no where to be found. I got that sick tummy feeling. What heck is going on? I went into panic mode and I could feel the hot tears welling up in my eyes. Please, please let this be a mistake. Waldo and Andy told me to calm down, everything would be fine. But what if it wasn’t? What was I supposed to do? Waldo said whatever happens, he & TE would stay behind and make sure the 4 of us got on the plane together. Now that scared me even more. Can you imagine Waldo wandering LAX?
I got on the phone with AA reservations and somehow and was given a different record locator. He was confirmed on the list, but we would have to print his boarding pass at the airport. Whew! First crisis averted!

Or was it?
We did the same thing with the scale the day before we left

Waldo + LAX = Good TR material

Hope you all wound up on the same plane.

Janet

Yup, it's peer pressure again. I thought that was over with when I finished High School, but apparently it starts again on the DIS!

Yeah, it was a little stressful. I don't fully relax until we're all sitting in the terminal.
OMG! I love that movie with Tom Hanks... wasn't it called Terminal or something like that?

Yup, I thought I was going to toss my cookies, until I realize I had no cookies to toss, so I just got that sinking tummy feeling. Yuck!

OMG, I go to bed, and then I'm up to find that you've started already AND on page two ?!? That's what a get for sleeping......SLEEP IS FOR THE WEAK!!

Its funny that you did the luggage shuffle BEFORE you left. After our Maui fiasco with the "Luggage Shuffle" (in the airport terminal, no less ), I swore that I was going to buy luggage with a BUILT IN scale. But to date, I still haven't and will probably be yellin for DH to lift this "darn bag" onto the scale the day before also....

Your boarding pass incident has me nervous.......please tell me everything worked out ok......

And, finally, please do NOT let Waldo wander ANYWHERE, especially the airport. He might wander into the mens bathroom and be accosted by a US senator. (i've always wanted to use that smilie, and here was my chance....... if I offended anyone, my sincerest apologies )

Waitin' for more.........
