Joining your TR! Oh I would not be able to keep the secret until the plane - I think I would have cracked when they asked about luggage!

Ok, the NEXT installment:

Arrival at the RESORT:
We land at Sanford Airport and I am HOPING that there is a car service there to pick us up....we get to luggage claim and there is Ed, with a big sign with Ethan and Aarons names on it....WHEW told ya I was skeptical!! We load everything into the car and head to that magical PLACE I LOVE SO DEARLY However as we get off at the excit, we get a speeding ticket Ok, he was NOT going that fast over the speedlimit, and there were several officers pulling over people left and right, so we were among many...anyway, I was hoping it would be fairly fast process as we were JUST OUTSIDE THE ENTRANCE TO DISNEY!! for pete's sakes We still made it to the resort by 6 pm on Sunday and check in was a breeze, as always. My DMIL's scooter was there...CHECK, our Garden Grocer order had arrived, CHECK and our Fridge was in tact, CHECK the CM for luggage took our fridge and everything else onto the cart up to our room, unloaded the luggage and unpacked the fridge, plugged it in and we were ready to head to the Magic Kingdom....Just a few pics of our arrival:

What they found in the room:



Our room decor


ayyy i had to throw in one of a bathroom...the women will understand


Goofin off on the way to the bus:








Arent the shirts FABULOUS???




Next up, heading to Magic Kingdom for Crystal Palace ressies...and my MIL has NEVER been to MK!!!! Is it REALLY a Buffet with CHARACTER?
and How will we like Animal Kingdom?

I can't believe your driver got a speeding ticket. Talk about starting the trip off with excitement. At least you all made it there safe and sound.

I am loving your trip report - and yes, I understand about taking pictures of the bathroom.

When I was a teenager, we visited the Hotel Del Coronado in California and I was amazed at the bathroom - it was fabulous! - I HAD to snap a picture!

Melissa,

Wow, the boys look so excited. What a cool resort. I don't remember seeing pictures of the basketball stuff before. Can't wait for more.
