Subbed!
Kim to my TR. Where did you drive from growing up?

I am thoroughly enjoying reading about your trip. It is a long drive for you & your ability to get up & moving is commendable We don't have as far to drive as you but only 1 state down it is still a loooong way down to Orlando. So reading about your driving it recalls to my memory how tiring (yet rewarding) that drive can be, that's what I meant & I do apologize my first post came off otherwise

Your dad's comments about how you should almost be to such & such a city had me laughing out loud ANd the goody bags for your daughter was a great way to break up the trip for her. I am looking forward to hearing more
Sorry for needing the clarification, I just could not really grasp what you where getting at in the previous post. It could be just me at the time I was reading it.

Hope you will be willing to stick around for the long haul.

I probably would have told him that he could go to the CS place at the resort while I checked in. Yup, I would have been thinking of only myself by that time.
Thanks Sophia for making me laugh. I'm glad I am not the only one who admits that they wanted to get to Disney NOW.

yay you finally made it. I was seriously cracking up picturing your MIL freaking out about the snakes. I was laughing even harder because I would probably be the same way. I live in the city where we never see snakes. So that would have been a culture shock for me.

Dont feel bad about being a B**** I threw a temper tantrum or two on our trip too. Everyone gets over it.

Thank-you and thanks for letting me clarify I'm glad to have it cleared up, I just learned the love of reading trip reports & I am looking forward to reading more!

My cousin always liked the road trip part of our family trips I like family time too but that long in a car is more family time than necessary in my book I just want to get there!

Last time we drove (1,000 miles for us) we tried getting book "cassettes" from the library thinking a good mystery would keep it interesting but we found it made us drowsy instead

You did good going along with the family wanting to stop for food & I'm sure it was cheaper than Pepper's Market but that would've been a test of patience for me too

All caught up! That sounds like a LONG drive, but it sounds like you handled it well. I would probably have been the one freaking out about snakes, but I know nothing about snakes! I read here on the dis that people have found them in their hotel rooms and I tried to convince DH not to stay on the ground floor (it didn't work. DH is in no way afraid of snakes.)

I completely understand not wanting to stop so close to Disney. Really, it's great that you let them stop and eat. I am not sure I would have been so kind!

I almost cried when I saw pictures of the hotel. SO wonderful to be there! I can't imagine what it felt like driving through the gates!!!

Hoping to take a trip this year, but also contemplating buying DVC, which would involve skipping this year and using that money for the downpayment. We'll see where the year takes us.

Yay, you're there! CSR looks absolutely beautiful. I love the colors!

I would've reacted the same way you did if we were that close to Disney and someone wanted to stop. No worries!

YAY, you made it!

I have to agree with many others that I would have had the exact same response to stopping 15min before WDW to eat.

DMIL was funny about the snakes, while snakes freak me out a little I'm very laid back and would have laughed thinking she was kidding.

Can't wait to hear about CSR, we stayed there once around 12yrs ago.

Whooo hooo, you made it! I had to LOL about the snakes. *** for the need for food 15 min before Disney, I'm with Sophia, I would have tossed him in the back with an uncrustable and said, "take outta tide you over till we get there" You get big kudos from me!! Great pics of the sign and CSR

I was not too fond of stopping but it worked out fine.

It was a long drive, but doable. I am not saying I really have any real desire to do it again on our upcoming trip though.

I got goosebumps when we finally arrived!!

It was a great resort Jenny. Thanks for being kind about my drama moment.

to my TR! You are not late, so don't worry about it. It will be slow moving TR because I have so much going on at the moment that I do not have as much time to DIS as I would like.
