The MCLOVINS Hit the World - HARD!!!!! *COMPLETED*

I am a changed woman.

No, really.

I knew we would have an amazing time. I knew I’d be back in my happy place. I knew I’d feel joy like I hadn’t in a long time. I had no idea I’d feel like this at the end of it though. I feel completely revitalized. I am seeing how important this trip was for me. It gave me the perspective I think I needed. The point is: BOY did I need to go to Disney World. I really really really did. And it ended up being a trip that defied my expectations times a thousand.

I was in a completely different place before we left than where I am now. Sometimes you just need to take a step back, look into the eyes of the Mouse, or whatever large rodent is the symbol of your favorite place, and get away for awhile.

But enough of the sappy stuff. WE WENT TO DISNEY WORLD! And it was possibly the best trip… dare I say… EVER?

If you are coming here from my Pre-Trip Report entitled "The Caprias Hit the World - HARD!!!!!!!" thanks for stickin' with me! You're probably wondering why we have changed from The Caprias to the McLovins. Well, Capria is really my nickname and has nothing to do with my fab travel companion aka my mom. I was hoping some hilarious thing would happen during the trip to make a great TR title and McLovin ended up being an unofficial mascot of this trip. More on THAT later!!!!

If you AREN'T here cause of my pre-trip, I forgive you, and WELCOME! So... who exactly went on this trip?!

Your jet-setting, glamorous cast includes moi: Lia, age 20 (this trip was for my birthday! Wahooo!), singer/dancer/actress/make-up artist, all around performer extraordinaire (I actually just got an email from one of the casting agencies I work with asking me if I’d like to come in to audition to be a street performer in the new live-action Smurfs movie, so there is a perfect example of my ridiculous life trying to make it in show biz!) and my mom, the selfless and fabulous woman who finally made this trip happen. We have a very close bond, but I wrote about all of this already! I will not get into all the details about us loonies and how we planned and got ready for this monumental vacation to the World, so I URGE you to check out the pre-trip! It’s not one of those 100 page ones. No offense to those of you who do those… I just can never get through them! Short attention span!

READ THE PRE-TRIP REPORT: The Caprias Hit the World - HARD!!!!!!!!!

Click now and receive the easy to navigate index for no additional charge!

Something I did not include in the pre-trip is what I posted on my blog (took that picture of the castle on our 2006 trip) just before we left, so I will include that here cause I think it kinda sums up how I feel about Walt Disney World:


I am almost free. I am almost completely gone from the real world and all it’s problems and complications. I am almost in a place where I feel the absolute innocence and wonder of being five years old and seeing the castle for the first time. Today I will be in a place that makes me truly understand that anything is possible. I will believe that magic is real. As I’ve said before, Walt Disney started out as a kid drawing pictures of mice and dogs. In a matter of hours I will be standing in what was once just a distant dream in his mind. Thank God he followed his passions. I will be sure to follow mine as well. Maybe one day you’ll be standing in my dream too.

I will not be posting for a very long time BECAUSE I AM GOING TO WALT DISNEY WORLD TODAY. Trying to describe how I am feeling is fruitless, so I really have no words. Except of course…

Suck it, nerds! Capria OUT.


Heh. 30 ROCK REFERENCE ALERT. If you caught that (Hi MarieTheCat24!!!!!!!), then you DEFINITELY belong here. If you didn't... you can catch up by purchasing Seasons 1-3 and then calling me.

Uh, moving on.... Want to know where we stayed? Ate? What parks on which days? Water parks? Dining plan? How long did we spend in the hotel room watching that luminous Stacey?!?! You will find out as we go along! This is how I roll. Welcome! Also I should say that I took over 1,000 pictures!!!!!! MANY of which will be shared in this report!

Before I even get into the thick of this, I must WARN you: This trip report is going to be LONG. LONG. LONG. Longer than you probably think it will be, even now, as you're reading that it will be long. We probably won't even GET to Disney until Chapter 21, Part 3, Subsection D, Point 2. I am detailed. I want to write EVERYTHING I remember down. So that I will remember it someday and read it to my children to hold them over until we leave to take THEM to Disney. SO, yep, LONG. But I think it's worth it cause I like how I write. I think you will too. And I WILL finish it. Hopefully in time for my next trip. LATE OCTOBER/EARLY NOVEMBER 2010 BAYBEEEEE!!!! Chant with me now: Food and Wine. Food and Wine. FOOOOOD!! WIIIINE!!!

And away we goooooooooooooo!

Day Zero: Too Excited To Sleep


Yep. Day zero. I TOLD YOU this was going to be long. I'll give you time to go get a snack. Personally I am eating some VOLLMILCH from the German pavilion. Ah… Germany. Germans. German guys. German guys telling me how nice I smell and giving me free….whoops! We are certainly getting ahead of ourselves here.

More on THAT later.

I enjoy the Germans. FYI.

OK OK hopefully you are back from getting your snack now. Here we go. I don't know about any of you but the day before vacation, to me, is ALWAYS part of the trip. Or, at least, it feels like it. The mood feels different. Your own house just FEELS different. Like it’s getting ready to be without you. You know?

I had to do my pre-Disney World ritual which is VERY important. So important in fact that I believe if I do not do it, we will not make it to Disney. Yep. I am crazy. Welcome! You will get used to it. This ritual involves watching two of the best movies ever created: Weekend At Bernie’s and Weekend At Bernie’s 2. BACK TO BACK, on the afternoon/evening before we leave.

I was introduced to these as a baby. You see, whatever my mom watched, she let me watch with her as long as there was no killing, cutting, drugs, or sex. Ish. Err... I'm pretty sure Weekend At Bernie’s has a few of these themes.

But... it’s HARMLESS. And I LOVED it.

Still do. Randomly watched part 2 one year right before we left for Disney cause it came on HBO. It has now become a RITUAL! I HAVE to leave the time open. For Bernie.

What are your pre-trip rituals? I want to hear them. If they include: dead guys, any members of the Brat Pack especially Andrew McCarthy who is still cute, voodoo, animated open credits, virgins, bad 90’s clothes, bad 90’s hair, awesome 90’s clothes, awesome 90’s hair, and necrophilia… like mine do... we might be soulmates. Cause I’ve never met anyone else as nuts as me. So LET ME KNOW!

So.. watched Bernie. Laughed. Cried. LAUGHED. Was sad when it ended. Because I ONLY watch these movies right before I go to Disney World and I get sad right before a trip. Because as EXCITED as I am that the trip is finally here… it means it’s almost over, too. Oh, Disney. Sigh. Tear. But then I get excited IN ADVANCE about planning the NEXT Disney trip. Which I start doing mid-trip because as the trip is ending, I start having cardiac arrests in anticipation of having to leave, so I need to have SOME IDEA of when I will be returning.

Is anyone as nuts as me? Send help.

Anyway... I snapped out of it. Got RE-excited. Big time. I JUMPED out of my seat so that I could shower and get everything, once and for all, FINALLY one hundred PERCENT PACKED. While showering I said "This is last shower I will take in MY shower for 9 days!!!!!!!!! Waaaaaaaaahoooooooooo!!!!!!!"

Fast forward to around 11:30, when I’m all packed and have my suitcase sitting by the door. One of the people I adore most in this world, Tina Fey, was hosting Saturday Night Live, so obviously I watched that instead of sleeping even though I had to get up at 3:45 AM. I knew that even if I did lay down, I would just stare at the ceiling thinking about Disney World for hours so I figured, why miss Tina?

I think I finally closed my eyes around 2am, but who knows? Tried sleeping to no avail. Tried counting sheep. Nope. Tried counting Mickey Mouses. Just got me MORE EXCITED!!!!!

I laid there and imagined the week ahead of me. The magic. The rides. The shows. The audio-animatronics. The dirty water smell. The monorail smell. The food. Wishes. The endless possibilities of an adventure about to begin. You’ve all done it.

I thought of walking down Main Street for the first time in 1.5 years. I felt my childhood innocence flooding back. I remembered, like it was yesterday, the first moments of my first Disney trip back when I was only four. We drove from New Jersey. I could literally feel my mom pick me up out of bed and lay me in the back seat of the car where she had laid out a blanket and pillow for me, like it was yesterday. I really can still feel being carried. Because I was so little and SO EXCITED that the memory is FOREVER embedded into my brain. I COULD NOT BELIEVE I was going to DISNEY. WORLD. The same exact feeling rushed over me that I had when I was four. That morning all those years ago, we left before the sun came up. Because of this memory, every time I’m up before the sun rises I get this FEELING. This amazing feeling that I’m on the brink of something INCREDIBLE. Magical. My mind just can’t stop going. Thinking. So soon, within HOURS! I would be back to my home. Walt Disney World was right around the corner. Once again, I was too excited to sleep.

Hey girl. You know I'm in! I loved your PTR, so I know I'm going to love your TR.

I completely am the same way as you. With all the pre-trip rituals..thinking things like "This is my last shower at home until we get home!" and then I get sad too..I'm already dreading the end of the trip and it hasn't even started yet!

Hey tinkgurlfriend. Glad you are enjoying. I love yours too. Just posted to it in fact!!

It's good to hear I am not alone in the rituals. But I do believe I am the only one who watches Weekend at Bernie's both parts 1 and 2 before each trip. Still waiting on someone to come forward and tell me there is a gigantic Bernie fan club here on the DIS who dress in the Mickey paint chips and have meetings in front of the Hall of Presidents. A girl can dream!

Thanks for reading guys. I appreciate you coming along for the ride.

My cousin is having a baby today, It's 4am, I still haven't slept, and we have to drive 2 hrs to the hospital... so... I do not know if I will be updating. She has two girls ages 6 and 1 and this is going to be a boy! I AM SO EXCITED! I love kids, kids love me, I am super close with all of them in my family (I actually hope to take them on WDW trips someday soon!!), and I want many of my own. I am so so SO excited! I am praying everything will go smoothly b/c the last birth was a scary one. I'm sure everyone will be happy and healthy. I can't wait to meet my new cousin!!

This is beautiful, and really sums up Disney to most of us on the DIS!

Looking forward to hearing some trip details, but please don't make me wait until chapter 21!!!

They're making a live-action Smurfs movie? Oh, snap! I've gotta see it! If you get the part, do you get to be painted blue? That's always been a dream of mine. Actually I'd want to be painted green a la Elphaba in Wicked. If I could do anything, I'd play Elphaba. Except I have zero vocal talent so that will never happen.

Oh my gosh! A shout out! I feel so special. And I am so ready for the TWO new episodes of 30 Rock tonight. The past few weeks have been just tragic without new episodes.

I know exactly what you mean, girl! I just thought I was the only one who ever felt that way. The house feels so weird the night before we leave. It's darker. Somtimes I think that my house is depressed that it's not coming on the trip with us.

I listen to cheesy 90's music while I pack. Does that count? I mean, the Spice Girls and NSYNC had some pretty awesome clothes. Fun Fact: The song C'est La Vie by B*Witched makes an excellent packing song. Dancing around my bedroom while packing makes the whole process a lot more fun.

I always make sure to savor my last shower at home. My hair and hotel showers do not mix well.

Tina Fey is way more important than sleep. Plus, it was a really funny episode. The only downside to watching was that I got that horrible Justin Bieber song stuck in my head. If we never had to see a 15 year old kid attempt to rap again, the world would be a better place.

Ok. Ridiculously long comment over. Hope everything goes well for your cousin and the baby! And I can't wait to hear more about your trip!

Thanks. I am actually kinda proud of what I said there because it is always really hard to articulate my feelings about WDW to other people. Especially those who have no idea what it's really about and think it's rides and character m&gs for kids. Sigh.

You will find out the details as we go along! Which will be soon. Thanks for stickin with me!!

MarietheCat24 ~ you are getting your very own VIP comment reply post b/c I appreciate all of what you said and also I am too lazy to like quote everything. Here we goooo!!

1. YES. I figured out a LOT. About my life. And have already taken some measures based on this decision making. And i'm much happier than before the trip. It was not just a vacation. I'm having trouble explaining it to people. But I think everything will be better now than it would have been had I not had this trip!

2. I have no idea what is going on with the Smurfs movie to be honest. It turns out they wanted street performers who could do like freaky special stuff like eating fire/fire breathing...whatever. I try and avoid contact with fire. At all costs. But now I kind of want to take it up so that I can be painted blue. I have worn some pretty AWESOME costumes for roles. Including authentic 1920's couture. BUT being painted blue would top everything.

3. You deserve the shout out b/c of your 30 Rock fandom. If someone wants to rob me on the street all they have to do is come up to me and start quoting 30 Rock. I will go limp with laughter and they can then take my belongings. So a shout out was nothing really. And I missed the two episodes b/c my stupid cousin had a stupid baby!!!!!!!!!!!! But I will be watching them immediately after getting offline!

4. YES YES YES about the house being depressed. Awesome personification. There.

5. OH MY GOD. I can not believe you have brought up B*WITCHED. Because my mom and I LOVE LOVE LOVE that song C'est La Vie. It is so DUMB. And yet great. "Hey Hey Hey i'm a wolf today. I'll huff i'll puff i'll blow you AWAY!" I still have their album. What fun. And I still listen to *NSYNC on occasion if i'm being totally honest. I am not over the pop music of the 90's in the same way I am not over that they did not turn Weekend at Bernies into a trilogy. Sigh.

6. I made the mistake of using the Disney fake hair shampoo/conditioner combo on this trip. It was a distastuh as Beyonce would put it. More on THAT later.

7. TINA was AMAZING on SNL. As usual. My favorite part was the Sarah Palin TV channel when they had her name all those fake shows like 30 Main Street starring Stephen Baldwin and then just left The Jay Leno Show alone? I was in stitches. and the brownie boyfriend thing was SO LIZ LEMON. I loved it.

Sorry I wrote you a novel btw. I apologize to the entire DIS for my rambling. Get used to it.

Just a general note to everyone about what I mentioned before:MY COUSIN DID HAVE HER BABY!!!!!!!! TODAY!!!!!!!!!!! Mom and baby are doing well. We have such a blessed family. I am SO SO SO happy. For her and MYSELF because I love babies and kids in general and I am so close with all my little cousins and now we have a boy! Girls run in our family. I am so excited to take him to WDW someday. I need to go to the store and get him his first Mickey Mouse plush.

Life is what happens in between trips to WDW
Those "flying cookies" flying through space can be seen
I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

"Say you will, say you won't. Say you'll do what I don't..." Another B*WITCHED and *NSYNC fan here. My Sis and I love to randomly listen to all those songs..*NSYNC, BSB, 98 degrees...And yet, we still know every single world to every single song. LOL

Aw, that is so exciting! Congrats on the baby!
