Which Way Is Splish Splash Mountian? UPDATE 11-3 July AKV TR

Hello all! Welcome to my trip report! I have to admit this is actually my frist trip report, I had planned on writing some for our other trips but there were circumstances that pervented me from doing so. But here we are and we are going to give this a shot! I did start a pre trip report but i didn't have any readers really so I will do a shor introduction for anyone joining in.

First off, the when. Our trip was July 8 to July 15 and we stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge Kidani Village. This was our frist time staying there (last year was Wilderness Lodge)

The Who. Our trip consisted of me and my boyfriend of two years, his parents, his older brother and his girlfriend and friend's of there's from england. I will post pictures of who everyone is once everything is loaded up.

Our trip was amazing, and full of turmoil, magial moments, some rude people (my traveling companions or toursists? stay tuned to find out.) some wonderful people and a varrying array of other adjectives and emotions. I really look foward to sharing everything with you and I hope this time at least i have someone to share it with. On the next part, i'll introduce everyone a bit more throurghly and start on our first day! Since I don't want to leave you with nothing here is at least a picture of me and my boyfriend...see if you can guess where we are!

Hubby is guessing that you're near the castle "somewhere."

Well, I figured if that wasn't the castle, the only other place I could think of with a brick and mortar wall would be the dividing wall around the lagoon in the WS I used to work at WDW and have some pretty random memories

Chapter 1: How Soon Can We Get A Margarita? (Introductions and Arrival)

I had typed all this out and then my computer shut down so here i am again! Welcome to Chapter one of my trip report. I just want to do breif introductions of everyone and then we will get right into it! First off ME!



I'm a 24 year old Professional Dog Trainer from CT. This is my second trip with my boyfriend's family, 16th trip over-all, and my first time staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge

Next up, my partner in crime, Boyfriend! I don't refer to him as his real name just because i don't ever call him by his name in real life so it would be weird to here! He is a 22yo full time student at CCSU. He is a huge Disney freak like me and we've been together two years. i should also mention we don't live together as this will become important later on



Next His brother and Girlfriend, Jameson and Jess. Make sure to stay tuned to find out all about how they drove us crazy the whole trip

Jess:


and Jameson:


Last but not least his mother and father (we will refer to them as Mr and Mrs. N and family friends of there's from the UK, Joe, Karen, and there two kids Nathan (18) and Melissa (15).

Here is Boyfriend and Nathan:


And Joe, Karen, Boyfriend, and Mr. N


Ok so those are your introductions, ready? Let's Go!!

Pre Day 1
Our flight was to leave Thursday morning July 8 at 7:55am. As such I had to be at my boyfriend's the night before to spend the night. I also had work Wednesday so everything had to be packed and ready to go on wednesday morning. After packing and repacking my suitcase multiple times I finally was ready



And so was Lady! i have a bad anxiety disorder and need to bring a stuffed animal with me when i fly or sleep in a new place.

I also almost had some stowaways who really wanted to come to disney!



Sorry pups not this time! Wednesday came and went and i finally made it to my boyfriend's house with minimal delay (he will tell you different) and we all settled in for an early night because tomorrow is Disney!

up next: Will my suitcase be overweight? Will our rooms be ready? Will we ever DO ANYTHING?

I love the picture of your dogs with the ears I have a picture of my dog wearing mine, but they fit her a little better than yours fit your dogs. Then again, my dog's also a boxer-mastiff mutt and weighs about 120 pounds
