I can't wait to see how your trip plays out! I'll be back!
Thanks, I am very glad I ended up going.

You started your TR! So glad to put a face with a "dis" name! You and your family are gorgeous!! Your youngest daughter looks exactly like you!!

You are amazing! After breaking an arm and fracturing a wrist, you still ride 12 miles and run 5??? You are my hero!! I can hardly run a mile completely healthy!

Can't wait for more!

Do The Hustle

Do you all automatically start hearing that song in your head when you read my title? Or is it just me?

So we left off on the plane to Orlando. The nice lady next to me on the plane must have really thought I looked like a lost cause. Every time I'd try to read a magazine, get a drink, etc. She'd offer her assistance. I was glad to accept it.

The flight was a little bumpy. Hurricane Ike was still in the gulf. It had not yet hit Texas. The fasten seatbelt sign was on more often than not. It wasn't anything too scary. In fact the girls enjoy it.

Upon arrival (BTW what is with that airport? It was under construction 11 months ago for our last trip and still looks the same.) Here's MCO's mini monorail ride.


We found our way to Magical Express. There were pretty long lines. A lot of families had surrendered to sitting on the floor. Even though it was a long wait most everyone around us was in good spirits.

I mean, you're going to Disney. Finally some people came around to tell us that the roads were pretty bad from rain and that they were doing the best to get the buses back to pick us up. We waited for about an hour and visited with the people around us. We thought it was funny. There was an older couple behind us that was traveling to WDW for the first time for their son's 50th birthday. They were a nice couple. She commented on how she was unsure about their trip because there seemed to be a lot of kids in line for the buses. Who would have thunk there'd be kids at Disney?

Finally our bus arrived and our entire bus was filled with people going to Pop Century. It's so funny how excited you get to see the ME bus upon arrival but on the way home it's the grim reaper.


DH tried to get a picture of the Walt Disney World sign. This is the best he could get from the middle of the bus in the rain.


Since I knew the whole bus load was getting off at Pop I told my family to try to move quickly so we could check in infront of most of the crowd. Since we were not retrieving luggage from below we did end of in the front of the crowd.

And we were greated in the best way possible. As we walked in it was exactly 6 p.m. There was a D.J. and several staff members doing The Hustle in the lobby just as we walked in. What a great time for us to check in. It had been a long day of traveling and that was a treat. It was also the only time we got to see The Hustle during our 10 night stay at the Pop.

I am loving you trip report, your family is beautiful! Such cute kiddos!

I cannot believe you broke both arms, that is something that I would do! Hey if you are going to do something do it all the way right?

Wow, I'm impressed. Two broken arms and still going to WDW. I have a feeling I would have done the same thing. In fact, in disneyland I got run over and pushed down by a stoller one time and then the man pushing it stepped on one of my ankles. I didn't leave,I kept walking around for the next two days, drove home to northern CA and ended up in casts on both ankles...so I feel your pain.
Your girls are beautiful and I love the ideas of the 100 and 30 day parties!
Can't wait to read more!

Welcome to my TR. I've had a great time reading yours. It's fun to see what other people were doing the exact same time as you in the World.

I'm surprised I haven't come across anyone yet that saw or noticed me. I sure did get a lot of stares.

OMG. That's awful. You must have really been in pain for those two days. I can't believe he pushed it over you then proceeded to step on you.

What are you kidding me? and lose our place in the front of the line? Well the girls did their own version of shaking their booty to the music, I guess.

Love your TR so far. What a trooper! But I understand what we would do for our kids. I broke my ankle and was in a boot on crutches just before going to DL last summer. Almost cancelled, but knew how disappointed the kids would be. So I toughed it out on a scooter. But I cannot imagine not being able to use either of my arms. Cudos to you on that one!!

Great update. I haven't stayed at Pop, but it's on my list. So far I have been lucky to stay at 5 different resorts on property so far. Of course the luxury resorts are probably gonna have to wait 20 years or so, lol! Can't wait to hear more!

your family are gorgeous! I love the report ... and can sympathise with the injuries ....

last year we had a huge car smash getting to WDW and I was in a cast, sling (broken shoulder, dislocated elbow) and a wheelchair for the 1st few days.

Great benefit was that I did 10 days of WDW in a haze of medicated drugs - which is quite a trip!

nothing - apart from legally enforced hospital stay would keep us away

Glad to see your hubby took good care of you through it all - mine did too and its nice to see them step up to the plate sometimes
