I can't wait to see where you go first.
Your smarter than me. I'm obviously a glutton for punishment and keep booking early morning flights.

Since most of the time it's just me, or alternatively me with my parents (who are morning people - I don't know how I ended up with them), it's not too bad. If I'm ever traveling by plane with the nieces, I'm booking later flights. Of course they are weird morning people too. I'm the oddball night owl in the family.

Stumbled across you TR by your title. I love it. We are big Phinn and Ferb fans in this house.

Can't wait to read more.

I hope you will feel better soon! Something similar happened to me last year: I was sick just before and after my WDW trip, actually had to stay in bed for quite a few days.

Great start to your TR! I wouldn't want to be on a 6:30 am flight either! Here in Germany many of the flights for package holidays to Spain/Italy/Greece for the beaches are leaving at horrible times. Friends of mine once had to get on a flight at 3:30 am! One of the reasons why I don't go on package holidays!

I love early flights, especially when traveling with my nephews. They just sleep the whole flight.

I'm thinking of trying the airport in White Plains. It's a lot cheaper than JFK. Hmmm might have to look into it now.

Love your room photos. I didn't realize the values are THAT small that the door hits the bed when opened. Does the sink area of the bathroom have a door?

Thanks for reminding me that I wanted to post something about the rooms as well: I really like the new All Stars design! I think it makes Music and Sport so much more desirable than Pop! I think it looks very modern and sleek! Pp rooms just look way to busy to me and have strange colors.

Hope you feel better soon, Crissy! Those antibiotics should start working their magic soon!

I am with you on getting up at the crack of dawn -- not a big fan of it at all!

Yick to all the turbulence -- I would have been a nervous wreck the whole time!!!

Yeay for reaching the resort -- the room looks nice, but I am rather anxious for you to get to the Boardwalk.

I was definitely the Phineas of this trip. My friend was constantly asking what we were doing each day. I love that show.

Get on a plan at 3:30 am! I'd never be able to make it.

I'm just happy that I was healthy for my week at Disney. My doctor told me that I should have stayed in Florida. Next time I'll know better. Usually I get sick while at Disney. This was a first for the before/after.

I wish I could sleep on a plane. I'm always wide awake the entire trip.

White Plains is wonderful for flying out of. I haven't flown from JFK, LaGuardia, or Hartford in ages. I love that it's so easy to get in and out of. My first time flying out of there I was off the plane and in the car in about 1/2 an hour.

The value room was small. It was fun dragging out our bags when it was time to switch resorts. The sink area didn't have any kind of door, or even a curtain like the moderates. Luckily we both got up at the same time the entire trip so it wasn't really an issue.

I was pleasantly surprised by the room decor. It was very clean and sleek looking, fitting for the size of the rooms.

Thanks! I can feel the antibiotics working already. I'm not coughing nearly as much overall. Now I'm mostly triggered by exercise so I'm trying to be careful.

The turbulence was awful. I was trying not to grip the hand rests too hard. Luckily the take off and landings went smoothly, and those are what make me the most nervous.

I was feeling a bit anxious about getting to the Boardwalk too! All I kept thinking about all week was getting there.

I hate plane turbulance. It freaks me out and I start to get panicky.

I am one of those weird morning people. I like to get where I'm going as early as possible. It kinda irked me to wait until a later flight in May when I was leaving Disney. I mean, I didn't want to leave but it killed me wait around all day to leave. Does that make sense?

So glad you've started; I was looking forward to hearing about how your travel and arrival went!

EArly morning flights- no early morning ANYTHING stinks! EXCEPT getting on your way to Disney! Yay!

Glad that baby didn't completely wreck your whole trip. Love that you got in and out of check-in in 5 minutes. Sweet!

So, where'd ya go first??

My BFF is usually one of those people, but this trip I was the one dragging her out of bed in the morning. Very odd.

Leaving Disney I like an early evening flight, but usually get stuck with the morning ones. Seriously I hate mornings anytime!

I've finally accepted the fact that I'll never be a morning person. Getting up and going for a run this summer was horribly painful for me. As far as I'm concerned the human body wasn't made to get up at that time.

The sad thing is that it's never a baby sitting behind me, but older kids in the 6-7 years old range. Old enough to behalf better than they do.

Getting my next installment up soon, I promise!

I'm actually a morning person (I didn't used to be, four year olds will do that to you) but I still would like a later flight so the non morning people can be...more...pleasant.

No door or curtain for the sink area Is that true of all the values?

Out of all of the mods, I love the set up of the new rooms at CSR. Queen beds, flat screen tvs, and sliding doors for the sink area.
