Good EEEEEEEAAAAAARRRRLLLLLYYYY morning everyone! It's that time of year again. What time is that? It's time for my DH and me to ditch the kids with babysitters, strap on our favorite Disney clothes, and head to the most magical place on Earth... It's SOOZE's adults-only TR Time!!

I'm reporting to you live from the Indianapolis International Airport, where it is just about 5:30 am and I've already been up for 2 hours! Do I care, though? NO WAY!!

And the pixie dust is already flying.. check this out:

Our original flights had us flying AirTran with a STOP in Atlanta. We were to leave Indy at 6 am, stop for a plane change, then end up in Orlando by 10 am. Not bad.. not bad at all.

So we are getting comfy in our airport seats (seriously, the seats in our airport are sweet!), when the gate agent starts announcing that the flight is over-sold WHAT?! It is 6:00 in the morning and that plane is gi-normous. How could it be oversold?! OH! It is Sunday after Thanksgiving...

So Matt and I are already shaking our heads... like... uh uh... NO WAY are we giving up our seats. Free ticket or not... we are going to Disney World.

THEN... the gate agent proceeds to tell us that there is another flight leaving at 7am. It's a DIRECT flight to Orlando... and it gets into Orlando at 9:15. WHAT?!?! I pushed Matt out of the seat.. GET UP THERE AND GET US ON THAT FLIGHT!!

SO.. what a great start to the trip. Not only did we get vouchers for two free round trips on AirTran, but we are getting into Orlando 45 minutes sooner than we would, with a DIRECT FLIGHT!!


That's all for now! I'm going to try to get a teeny nap in before I get on the plane. (Totally can't sleep on planes, never have, never will!)

Hope to chat with you all later!

Hopped here after seeing your links on Lesley's TR. Read your PTR, loved it. The straight through flight is great. They offer that here in Dayton. Like the Indiana airport also, we will be flying out of there when we go to Vegas next Sept. I wish that it was WDW instead! Anyway, I'm here until it's over.
I'm hooked on TRs.

The Pixie Dust started before you even left the airport. May this truly be a magical trip.

I can't wait for pictures, of all the Disney Christmas magic.
