Michelle, I am super impressed that you already have your first update up! Can't believe that man was heating up his leftover Red Lobster -- ewww! First of all, who wants to eat that for breakfast and second of all, did he not think the other guests might not appreciate it!

Woo hoo for your room being ready so quickly. I always like unloading everything before heading to a park! Was this your first time staying at Riverside?

Can't believe how crazy busy it was at the MK! A long wait for IASW says it all! Your firework pictures turned out very pretty!

Shocker, I can't believe you don't like Dinosaur! We all love it at our house!

Hey Michelle! Sorry I'm a bit late to the party.

Looks like beautiful weather so far. And great pictures of Wishes!

EWW!!!!! About the seafood for breakfast! I would have had to leave the room. I can't STAND the smell of seafood. We very rarely eat at Red Lobster or any other seafood place because I just can't stomach the smell.

It sounds like you had a productive afternoon at the MK! I wouldn't have waited in that line for IASW. I would be glad to never ride it again. But I love Dinosaur!

I can't wait for more!

I'm here Michelle! And Im so excited to read all about your trip Great start! I imagine you guys were pretty tired after two days of traveling and a late night in the parks - I can't wait to hear what this "other idea" from one of your group members was!

LOL at that Dinosaur picture! I would be so scared if I had to ride it alone!

And I don't know how I didn't realize you were an Alabama fan too...I posted this on Becky's PTR because I thought she'd appreciate it. I just got this email from the Disney Store and they now have collegiate t-shirts! Sadly they don't have Michigan (where my dad went to law school). Thought you might like this!

I hope you don't mind that I'm joining in. I've seen you on other trip reports I have followed (soonergirl, that's nice, etc.).

Your fireworks pictures are stunning! Remind me of what camera you have (did you just get a new one? Everyones PTR's are blurring together in my mind )

Hoping the drama is short lived!

On some other thread I was reading, a mother was asking about her 5 year old daughter riding this. She wanted to know how scary the ride was. Some guy posted about his wife riding it----Wound up she was the last ride of the day, and ended up being the ONLY PERSON riding in her vehicle. Check out this photopass pic ---

I think this is how I would look if I had to ride that all by myself!
Oh MAN. MAN. That is both horrifying... and hysterical.

Thanks! to my trip report.

I really thought the red lobster thing was pretty gross. The guy seemed oblivious that he was stinking up the entire lobby.

I'm so glad you folks got the building you requested! That's in the Alligator Bayou?! We're staying at POR for 3 nights when we go and I requested a room in Magnolia Bend...is that a good choice? That's wonderful that your room was ready a couple mins. later!! lol!!

Can't wait to see MK!! Great pic of those balloons by the way!! Yay for HM's wait being only 10 mins. Boo for IASW being long!!

Wow! You got really great pics of Wishes. Looks like you had a great view! Yay for park hours being extended! must've been really busy! Can't wait to hear more!!
Thanks, Keala!

Yes---Red lobster and breakfast-----definitely an oxymoron!

I was glad we got one of the buildings I'd requested, too, and even happier that it was ready quickly after check-in.

We watched Wishes from right in the center of the hub. It was fairly crowded, but seems like we didn't stake out our spot until about 25 minutes before time.

I always love first installments of a trip, because I can sense that 'beginning of the trip' excitement. I aso try to think about what I was doing at the time when someone else was just starting an awesome Disney trip. I'm usually at school, but this time, for your trip start, I was hanging out with Brooklynn on spring break.

We're Dinosaur fans here. Even though that picture of the lady alone is cool, I'm not sure I'd want to ride alone. I got stuck on that ride once, and I know I wouldn't want to be sitting in there all by myself in the dark

...with dinosaurs.
I was shocked by getting on Peter Pan, too! It does seem like we had to wait in line for about 35 minutes, but I thought that was pretty good for that time of day.

I know you were having fun hanging out with Brooklynn. The only thing better could be hanging out with her and Bella at DisneyWorld!

I KNOW I wouldn't want to ride Dinosaur all alone!

Well, don't be too impressed, Jackie. As I told Wigd---I had a Saturday morning all to myself through the luck of sleepovers for two of my kids and DH and the 3rd kid leaving early to go spend the day with my MIL/FIL.

I have stayed at POR three previous times. Kevin and I stayed there in 2007 for an anniversary weekend trip, with no kids. We stayed there during a family trip in 2008, and then stayed there a couple of days in 2009, before moving over to the Poly. It was my sister's first time to stay there.

It was pretty crowded!
