Yes, the girls are going. We'll stop in Perry, GA going down and coming back, most likely. That's the halfway point for us, so that way nobody gets too cranky. It'll be fine, and it'll be cheaper than flying, since flights at the holiday time will be expensive.

Anywho I'm ready to read about Disney
Did you ever watch that show they did on t.v. about bums? They would hid and watch the bums all day and after the bums got a lot of money, they'd walk aways and get into brand new Escalades! The show followed them and they'd eventually drive to a house where the "bum" lived! So they were lying about being a bum!

It's a great idea to break up the driving!

I'm going in too.

We were there about the same time too, 6/21 - 6/29.

I'm really enjoying your report. We usually drive too, but for this trip we flew.

And

Happy Birthday!!

Day 3: Monday, June 22 *We’re FINALLY here!*

First of all..as I type this..It's officially my birthday now! ...okay back to TR...

As most of you who know me can guess, I could NOT sleep at all! I kept waking up every hour to see if it was time to get up yet, haha. Finally, we got up around 6 a.m. and headed to Ocala to eat breakfast at our usual Bob Evans.

Then…it was time to drive the last leg of our traveling! As we got closer and closer, I got more and more antsy and excited! Finally, we saw it-our first WDW billboard!



It wasn’t too long before we saw:



Ahh..we were back on WDW grounds again. What a great feeling.

First WDW bus!



We made our way to our turn:



And we pulled into OKW and heard those two great words, “Welcome Home” from the security guard. After getting the okay to proceed from the guard, we pulled into the Hospitality House parking lot to get checked in.



Our room wasn’t ready, but they told us what building we would be in so we parked our car by it and walked to the bus stop. As we looked at the OKW map, we realized that our bus stop is the same one from last year! Yay for South Point!

As we were walking to the bus stop, the bus for the MK was just leaving! But, the driver saw that we wanted his bus and kindly pulled over to let us get on! What a great way to start the trip with a bit of “magic”! Finally, we heard the MK arrival music come on the speakers and that’s when the butterflies really kicked in. We’re here! We’re here!

We got off the bus and found our stone on Walk Around the World right away. We took our usual picture by that, but I won’t be sharing that one for personal reasons. We went through bag checks and got in line to re-new our Annual Passes.

Finally, it was time to head in! Here’s the new banner for the new theme under the train station:



And as we walked under the train station, I started speed walking to make it around the corner and onto Main Street for my view of this:



And I let out a big sigh of relief. We were finally back to our second “home”. Back to where there’s no worries/problems from the real world back home. Back to where I re-live my childhood memories and make new memories. I’ll never get tired of this place.

We headed down Main Street as the ‘Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It’ parade was going by. We waited at the end of Main Street by the Plaza Restaurant for it to end and crossed over to head to Adventureland. I have to admit..I love the smell of the green peppers as you are in Adventureland. Am I the only one who’s noticed this?

We found a little stand and got some waters because it was H-O-T out! Then…we got on the first ride of the trip…PoC! It was great because we walked right on!

After our adventure with the Pirates and yummy Capt. Jack Sparrow, we headed to Liberty Square to get on the HM since B/F hasn’t seen the new changes yet. When we got there, we saw that it was broke down! Darn it! So we decided to walk past Peter Pan and see how ridiculous the wait time was already, but that was broke down too! We were starting to think that the MK was having a bad day and hopefully it wouldn’t be like this the whole trip!

~~Up next: Will any other rides be closed down too?!

Aw you're so sweet! I always have to wait until midnight to go to bed when it's the night before my birthday like this! haha. Well ever since I was younger, my grandma has always taken my sister and I out to eat and shopping on our b-days..so we'll be doing that and then tomorrow night, we're driving to Joe's Crab Shack!
