Dazed, Crazed & Just a Little Confused Live Trip Report

WELCOME TO...


Dazed, Crazed & just a Little Confused Live Trip Report….

So finally the trip is upon us….and I am feeling “dazed, crazed and a little confused” I’m not sure why really…probably because I am trying to do things a little different this time…

Against my better judgment, the crew, a motley crew I may add, has informed me I need to be more laid back this trip…and go with the flow. What the heck are they implying??!! OK, so in the past I have made 60 matching t-shirts…so what??? OK…so I have had every little detail planned out….a happy traveler is a prepared traveler in my book….but I digress…I WILL BE MORE LAID BACK….or die trying!!

So who is the crew?

Me…Kristine, fearless leader, organized to the nth degree


Bill…As long as the weather is good and I lay out his clothes every day…anything else goes
Jonathan…college kid, joining us on the 24th. That is if he remembers to pack and get on the plane. Nothing would surprise me


Jackie…in high school now. May really be too cool for us. Wonder if she will walk behind us??


Chris…6th grade boy, need I say more


Kirsten…10 and the only one left that still humors me

So what are some of our plans?

11 day trip: 6 nights Animal Kingdom Concierge, 5 nights Boardwalk Villas
(In no particular order)
  • Universal Studios
  • Fishing Excursion
  • Illuminations Cruise
  • Wishes Cruise
  • Wishes Dessert Buffet
  • Photo Pass Resort Shoot
  • Blizzard Beach
  • DTD Balloon
  • Gaylord Palms ICE
  • Aqua Seas Tour
  • Carriage Ride
  • Couple of misc other things

A couple of months ago I bought myself a Blackberry....I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! I think Bill is a little jealous of it. So I plan on Tweeting pictures etc. If you are interested click the link in my siggie.

So grab a cup of coffee…a glass a wine…or for me a shot a vodka and off we go!!!!

COMING UP NEXT…

  • Checking in to Animal Kingdom Concierge
  • 50’s Prime Time
  • Osbourne Lights

Hi everyone....

Checking in quickly....been a crazy day


My laptop has decided it has some sort of strange disease...I can't post pictures without it crashing.....so for pictures....check out Twitter...I did post a bunch of them there. (Link in Signature) I will add some pics as soon as I figure this out.

So this is the kinda short condensed somewhat boring version...


Check in went very smoothly over at Animal Kingdom Concierge….we have a 2 bedroom Pool View. The room looks fabulous.

We also found a few unexpected gifts in our room. (pictures to come soon)


The kids went swimming while I unpacked. At 4:30 we headed over to Hollywood Studios, The crowds were amazingly light.

We ate dinner at 50’s Prime Time and had a ball!! Our server was amazing. Before the evening was over Bill was deemed naughty and had to stand with his nose against the wall. He then had to sing “I am a Little Teapot” We were laughing so hard we were almost crying!!

After dinner we headed over to see the Osbourne Lights which were spectacular as always. I was surprised at the lack of photopass people at DHS.

We then walked onto The Great Movie Ride, Toy Story Mania & Tower of Terror. AT this point it was 8 pm and the park was closing.

All in all a great first day!!

Coming up tomorrow

  • Animal Kingdom
  • MVMCP
  • Wishes Dessert Buffet
