Our first year, we stayed at AKV, in a concierge level studio- just four of us, Lonnie, who was once upon a time my MOH and college roomate; Cammie, who I met on the DIS; and Kara, an axe murderer of unknown origins, also known as Karajeboo on the DISboards.



I like to call this photo "Before"


Year number two, we had all of our original members, plus two new lovely additions- Lovinlife, aka Pam who Kara & Cammie knew from here, and my dear friend from home, Joan, also called Wannabeadismom. We stayed in a 2 bdrm villa at BCV-



I like to call this photo " Plus 10"


Well, this year, we lost two- Pam was unable to join us, and Cammie couldn't come either.... But then, we got two NEW ones!! Laura -CRSdismom who we knew from guess where, and another dear friend of mine from home- Evie! We were all in for 4 nights in a 2 bdrm Boardwalk view villa at BWV!

Kinda like the two teeth Ally lost.... then she got two new ones!!!!



I like to call this one "Plus 20"

I hope you'll join us for ANOTHER side-splitting, pants wetting adventure in the happiest place on earth!!

TABLE OF CONTENTS

First Class, BABY! http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...43&postcount=5



And yes, MY tiara fits just fine. Jeff and Ally comment on it quite often. After all, what is a tiara but half a halo? Right? And SOMEONE needs to stay strong to keep everyone in line on these trips. It's a tough job, but..... oh who am I kidding? I had a BLAST as usual and can't wait for next year's DISmoms Dream cruise! But first we need to get through this year's craziness huh?

OK, need to go upload my pics..... talk amongst yourselves.....

First class is the only way to travel! . Great start! that you inspired AP purchases. Disney should give you a commission.

Let's see...you're at the Boardwalk and it's 11:55...I vote for a quick walk over to World Showcase for a slushy/margarita/adult beverage of choice. . Oh, and I suppose some lunch.

yikes....already behind. I'm here.

First off, who knew 3 years ago I would get on a plane and go visit people I met on the internet! let alone the DisMoms. I giggle because I had my screen name before I even knew of the DISmoms.

I had met Kara twice, once on a family trip to WDW in '08 and then this spring when I was in Atlanta and I drove up to have dinner with her. The others--nope never met 'em. But now I am sooooo glad I did. Wonderful ladies. We all come from that magical place....New Minnflorialina.

Flying from Minneapolis I got in later than the upgrade queens. I had to leave here around 4 am and when you live half way to the north pole, it is really dark! But as I was pulling out of the cold garage in my nice cool Florida clothes I realized I don't have sun glasses. Where on earth does one get sun glasses at that time in the morning...why of course the gas station.

Got to the Mpls airport and it was still early. I was flying southwest so no upgrade mojo here but I didn't have to pay for bags. It was so early the bar hadn't even opened. I thought that's okay I can have a drink on the plane...ummm no. While on the flight from Msp to Chicago, there was HORRIBLE turbluance. It was to the point where the flight attendants were told to sit down and there would be no beverage service for the flight Yeah not a good thing. But got to Chicago safely. I wasn't switching planes so once the Chicago passenagers got off the plane I was able to move to the 2nd row. There was beverage service on this flight!.

Soon I was touching down in sunny Orlando. Kara was to fly into the gate next to mine about 5 min after me. So ran to the potty and on the way out but who to I see. ---uuuh lost that photo~

We by pass the fruity drink stand and head down to ME. Ummm why is the bus taking so long.

We waited for ever for that bus to let us on board. The line for the POP bus was huge and I think 3 came and left while we were still waiting. But soon we were on the bus, texting our counter parts.
Yes I nearly cried when we pulled in to BWV. Not like that didn't happen at any other point of the trip.

It was the strangest thing- they never showed "THE" movie- they just put on some Disney cartoons. What up wit dat???

We had one of those too


This is supposed to be Lucy the Elephant from Margate, NJ-



Or, it could be the Coney Island elephant- but that would be very un-Disney, so we'll stick with Lucy.

I say it is Lucy, too, That's what I said when I saw it on our trip and my Dad agreed, we are from Philly and my Mom used to live in/near Margate




I Love this!

Great Start! The Boardwalk is so pretty

You must of been getting the first pictures up, while I posted.

This year's race with "Danskin" was Mother's Day Weekend.
"Trek's" race was suppose to be Labor Day weekend, but they cancelled with WDW and moved it over to Clear Water--FL. The whole point was doing the Triathlon at WDW. So now I am shooting for next May.

I am so sorry- I have a lot of friends who do that tri here at Sandy Hook in Sept. I hope next year stays at WDW.

Comment-AirTran used to have upgrades for $39 online. We figured it was cheaper to upgrade than pay for luggage. Luggage is included with the upgrade. Anyways, AirTran changed the fee to $99.

I have flown AT once, to my MIL's in FLA- and took advantage of that at the gate. Bigger seat was nice.

You have to be a Dis'er to get this.
Yea, I guess so!!

Hey Sally!! I have been soooo busy lately (and will continue to be until school ends) so that accounts for the delay somewhat- also that it was making me sad that I won't be back for 6 months (well- 5 months now! See? Flying by!). Not that that is so terrible AT ALL, but this DVC thing has put me in a every few months mode- used to be every 2 years before. LOVE my DVC!!!!!

DIS up, MEK!!! Hand that camera to some businessman on the tram!! Usually, they are the ones laughing the hardest at this when we do it!

Love the BWV pictures. Love the theme. Its so Steele Pier 1960's and reminds me of visiting there with my grandmother. (Well - not in 1960 because even I am not THAT old, but you know what I mean) She lived in South Jersey and we drove down there every summer from the time I was about 7 to the time I became a surly teen.

I think BWV are gorgeous- i absolutely LOVE the decor, especially in the lobby (well....except for creepy Paul! ) That's a very sweet memory you have of your Grandma-

I know you all probably had a wonderful time and I can't wait to read all about it.
We had a blast, as usual! When you posted this, I had just finished catching up on all YOUR fun in YOUR TR, but was too tired to write a reply! I thought it was kind of funny that you were reading about my girlie trip while I was reading about yours. Anyway, I'll go post over there now-
