I know, it was a bummer, but it wasn't meant to be, I guess. It would have been some super pixie dust if we got on!!

Yeah, I thought it was crazy too!! Funny is that the first time we went to WDW, we stayed at Dixie Landings! I am doing a TR, there is a link in my signature. It was funny about our wedding. The first time DH and I went to Disney was before we were married. When we were planning that trip, we found out about the weddings. I started planning a full blown wedding, and realized that my mom and I would not be speaking to each other after it was over. So....destination wedding it was. And there's no place more magical!

Can't wait to read more about your trip!

Still traveling....

We had an uneventful trip to MCO, thankfully Jetblue has the t.v's in each seat, so the boys could watch what they wanted and be entertained. I started off with Ethan & Lucas, Todd and Cole were across the aisle and had an empty seat. This later worked out nicely after all the boys switched seats at different times. It was about a 2 1/2 hour flight from Boston, arriving a bit early! YAY!! We landed a little after 11 p.m.- right when Magical Express luggage service closes, which we knew. So, we all made our way to the fake monorail towards baggage.

The airport was EMPTY!



Can you see the excitement?!!



On the "fake monorail"



We made it to baggage claim and in time we had our bags! Off to ME!! At this point, it was about 11:20 or so. Coley was getting super tired and ready to be cuddled, I don't blame him one bit! He really wanted Daddy to pick him up and carry him, but between the 5 suitcases, sit and stand stroller, diaper bag, carry ons and the other boys, there was no way....so he hitched a ride! This has to be one of my favorite pics from our trip! TOO CUTE!



We get our tickets checks at the ME counter, take a quick potty break and head to the "line" for Port Orleans Riverside..this is what we see!



We get to the end of the "line" (seriously, we were the ONLY ones there!) and a CM at the end waving a big Mickey hand tells us to get right out side, our bus was waiting! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! I was never so happy to see a bus before!!!



We give the nice bus driver our bags and jump on board, we're ready to be home!!!

Ethan and I in the front seat!



Todd & the other boys



We're beginning to sit too long, we're taking too many pics!



So we sit and wait and wait and wait......yes, we waited a LONG time, for a 1/2 hour! The boys were WILD, I was exhausted and needed to be "home" now.....and just when I thought I may start up the bus myself, our friendly Disney ME driver jumped aboard! YAY!!!!!!!!

He was great, he talked to us the entire way to PORS, there were only about 4 other people on the entire bus. I guess they just make the buses wait that long at night since not too many people come, I just wish they told us we may sit for that long....cuz my kids were nuts!! LOL!!

Continued in next post....

We finally make it to PORS about 12:30 p.m. We walk right in, up to the desk and check in with no issues! The boys were soooo good, they took a seat over in front of the t.v with Disney shows playing, they were so tired at this point.



A nice CM behind the counter offers to take a pic from the other side, from behind the counter to capture their faces. It didn't come out too great, but cute enough!



I take note of some of the details in our lobby.



At this point, the CM tells us that we got a room in the Alligator Bayou, building 15, adjoining rooms with Tracey and Adam, trundle beds, just as we requested!! She slides the map across the counter and shows us how to get to our room....we grab the boys and into the darkness we go......UGH!!!

We step out into the humidity, about 1 a.m with our 3 exhausted boys, 5 suitcases, sit and stand stroller, diaper bag and carry ons and with the map every direction, we still can't figure out where we were. I'm about to lose my mind. And now I find myself getting mad that no one offered to take us to our room, offer help with our bags, nothing! But it's late and I'm cranky.....so we go and get lost....and before too much longer, Todd finds the way to our room.

We open the door and see this.....all is right with my world again!!



I snap a few pics before we make a mess of it for the week....

The boys checking it out:



our t.v. and armoire:



sink and vanity area:



one of the beds:



hooks and fridge area:



At this point it was time to call it a night....we quickly changed and got right into bed! We had a busy morning ahead of us....Tracey and Adam would be there by 10:30ish, Garden Grocer between 9-11.

We were all asleep in no time with visions of Disney vacation in our heads!!

I'm here! I was looking at your first couple of pictures and thinking, "These people look really familiar!" Then I realized that I had stumbled on your PTR when I was reading some to find inspiration to write my own!
We have three kids, as well, and I can't wait to see how y'all dealt with your three, plus more!!
