Hmmm...

You didn't exactly convert me. If anything you got that "Part Of Your World" song stuck in my head. Now I look like a fruitcake walking around singing that song. Thanks Disney for ruining my reputation as badass.
Best vacation ever. I miss it there with you.

You're great keep up the trip report with my help of course.

If you live to be a 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day. So I never have to live without you.

Are We There Yet?

Are We There Yet?

Ahh, the age old question! I'll make this post short and sweet. We got to the airport at 5ish and got through security with no problems. Craigs parents are so friggin cute and they watched us alll the way through security until we got to the other side .

So we already had a pretty bleh meal at some resturant beside the airport so we walked around some shops and sat down for a drink before we had to head to our gate.

Our plane left a bit after 7. It was kinda strange being with Craig on a plane, but I was more happy that we took off on time so we were able to catch our connecting flight on time! We did catch it on time and time went by pretty fast to Orlando once we got onto plane number 2. The best part of the flight was the fact that we were in the emerg exit row so we got LOTS of leg room. ahh

heres some pics of us on the plane!



ooooo clouds!

So we landed at MCO at 11:30ish (i think). The airport was pretty dead and we stopped to take this pic, which unfortunatly came our blurry.


and it was at the moment that i realize, holy moly im in disney world with Craig!!

So we went and grabbed our bags, which luckily landed with us and then practically ran down to level one to catch the magic express.

We were quickly seated on the ME for the first time and as soon as that video came on I started tearing up, which Craig then proceeded to make fun of me (hmph!)

And soon enough we saw...

We had finially officially arrived at Walt Disney World!


and the next stop? POP CENTURY!

which leads me to the response for your latest installment. Enjoy these new moments with him. Create the most magical memories in and out of disney while you can! One day you will look back and be so glad that you did all this fun stuff and better yet have pics to prove it!

I'm excited to read this TR b/c I'm attempting to do the same thing in a few weeks with my DH! He's never been and had / has no desire to go but agreed after years of begging b/c he knows our 4 year old will love it. I have that on my side, at least, but I'm hoping he'll love it for himself as well as for our kids. Looking forward to your updates!

Giant Moths, Frogs and Stained Floors. Oh My!!!

So as I left off, we had just driven under that magical wonderful sign! Oh, how i love that sign! There weren't many people on the bus and our stop was first. We pulled into PoP and saw all the silly little signs like colored TV and air conditioned rooms and we finially got to the front! it was surprising to me how far back the actual hotel was from the gate.

We were both so excited to see the big POP sign but we were so so tired by this point (about 1am) from traveling all day that we went right to check in. There was no one else there so we were taken care of right away. We were given Craigs first visit button and two Happy Anniversary buttons. We had requested a king sized bed but there were none available but we were okay with two double beds anyways. Then we were given a map and some very vague directions to our room. We were in the eighties building.

So off we skipped to our room... and we oooh'd and coo'd at all the cute little bunnies everywhere and approached the buildings. First building wasn't ours, second building wasnt ours.... at this point we were getting somewhat annoyed but we kept on treking. We stopped and looked at the map we were given again and it was then that Craig realized that his beloved bandana fell off his backpack. and this is where he got very annoyed! remember how he says he takes this backpack everywhere? we'll this bandana has been on his backpack for all that time too. its been everywhere with him, every show hes been to, every trip all around the world hes taken, everywhere, and truth be told Craigs a bit sentamental about those kinda things. So we thought we should find our room and then take a walk around again to find the backpack. So we kept walking... and walking...

I'm off in my own world of exhaustion from no sleep before and as we walk around one of the buildings all I see is this GIANGANTIC moth looking bug on the wall.... I'm not lying... this this was as big as my hand and i promise I'm not exaggerating. So i start screaming like the siss I am and run up to Craig who was too annoyed to even make fun of me. But we keep walking.... and walking... and then we stop again and I start complaining my back hurts and Craig just told me to stop whining which then caused me to give him the silent treatment!

At this point I was ready to just sleep on the sidewalk, but then the image of the giant moth entered my mind again and I was determined to find this room. So off we went... AGAIN... this time in silence because we were annoyed with each other! ugh so we were almost at what we thought was the right cluster of buildings when a huge frog jumps out and scares the crap out of Craig! he hates frogs as much as i hate bugs and he just started running lol this broke the silence very quickly and soon we were both laughing... and questioning our choice to stay at a value resort!!

And then there it was....the right building.... the furtherest possible building ever! So we quickly find our room and found this little guy was waiting for us in our room....

cute right??

well whats not so cute was what we found next...
not ONE but TWO stains!!! ugh.... so unimpressed!


Since we were going to look for Craigs bandana we decided to walk to the main building and tell them about the stains in our room as well.

So off we trekked, this time there was no wildlife to scare us and while we didnt find Craigs banada we did find the main building pretty easily. Go figure!


And this my friends... is where i leave you with the cliffhanger!... what will happen next? will we have to live with the yucky stains? will we get an upgrade to the castle suite? () Will a the giant moth reappear!? you'll find out soon!

Looking forward to reading more!
