The lazy TR, my 12 y/o is writing it LOL ~~~ Day 1 August 14th ~~~

I am DisneyJo’s eldest daughter I_luv_stitch I am 12 years old and this is my first TR, I'll be red writing

Mum (DisneyJo she'll be blue writing)

Dad (David.)

Sister (Ellie who is 10.)

Day 1 August 14th

Very simple. We got woken by my Dad at 6:00am !!! To leave at 6:30am. We got through security very quickly a lot of time to look at all the shops. During security Ellie told my to take my jumper off but I didn’t listen and I went through and it beeped and I was really worried and they had to check me. We all got boarded by 11:00 ready for take off. I watched made of honour followed by Drillbit Taylor then Kung fu Panda. I always hate the food so I took my own Sandwich. The flight was really bumpy and I was so glad I got off. We went through passport control and Mum forgot to fill in half the form even though she had done them 3 times before. The man told Mum off. Dad got the cases and we went through and mum checked in at ME.

Jess you were absolutely petrified when the alarms went off at security, your little face And you and your dislike for the plane food taking a sandwich with you The man at passport control was a bit weird wasn’t he, once he found out that Daddy was a golf pro he asked him did he know what GOLF stood for, we couldn’t remember so he proudly told us Gentlemen only, ladies forbidden There was absolutely no queue at ME and I even got a “Have a Magical Day”

Ellie and I

Mum and Dad

We were on the coach and we went to OKW then POFQ then our hotel POR. We went up for a swim a shattered swim before we went down to the Food court and got 2 double cheeseburgers and Ellie and I shared and Mum and Dad. We were in bed by 7pm and Mum asked if they can deliver the cases in the morning but instead they came at 8:30pm.

From landing at MCO to arriving at POR only took one and a quarter hours, fantastic! We so needed a swim as we’d been travelling for over 16 hours, we desperately tried to stay awake but only lasted till 7pm. I called bell services to ask them to deliver our cases the next day which they agreed to only to knock on the door at 8.30pm In my sleepy state I just opened the door in my pj’s with out checking who was there, thank goodness it really was our cases!!!!!

When we got in the room we found some towel animals in there.


Ellie said it was a stingray

Excellent report, ladies. It's add a bit of extra fun when a report is written from more than one point of view. Surely, Jess, this isn't your first report. You are doing such a good job. I'm looking forward to reading more.

Did you speak to a 'human being'?

This is a nice change to the usual trip reports. Really enjoying it and looking forward to more.

Girls, you really look like your parents! One of you like Dad, the other like Mum... I bet you get told that all the time.
