I miss my DISmoms!!!!!!

For the third year in a row, I laughed, laughed, and laughed...... We also cried, and we had a lot of "Me" time......

Let's just say, at least in my case, nerves (I'm a very nervous flyer!), alcohol, premenopausal stress, and maybe a little touch of something, caused us all to need a little private time here and there.......

And when I was texting Cammie during the trip, I told her we were "a bunch of hormonal, menopausal golden girls!"

Cammie quickly brought to my attention that we are "just a few years away from ECVs!"

Next TR may be titled "DISmoms on scooters.... Golden Girls mark 20th trip!"

My camera is all wonky and I have actually lost some pics. Really weird.

But let me do the honors here......

Princess Ellen.... our fearless leader and holder of the DVC points..... but that's not the ONLY reason we love her......



Princess Lonnie..... despite that fact that she is tall, thin and has a great rack (yes, I really went there!!!!), I love her anyway and feel like I've known her forever!!!! And she taught me about tea with mint to keep me regular.....



And of course, the original McSparkleson.... It's ME!!!! And just for the record ladies, I hold some I'm Too Sexy photos for every one of you so be careful what you post this year!!!!!



Princess Joan..... there is no mascara that she can't beat... at least not this trip!!! Love you girlie!!!!



Princess Evie.... So glad to have met you this year!!!!! Again, I feel like I've known you forever, you are sooooo funny and you added so much to our group!



And Princess Laura.... I guess I really have known you forever, at least in DIS land! We first officially met 3 years ago (almost to the day!) and then again a few months before this trip!



This was the first year for me flying in for our annual trip, having moved back to SC this time last year. I am NOT a good flyer, so thanx to my new friend, "Mr Blue Pill" I was able to get on a plane and make it safely to Orlando.

I stepped off the plane and Laura was waiting for me, luggage cart at the ready, just in case I over self medicated. Not to mention, those luggage carts would have helped a bit making our way back to BWV a couple nights!!!

My flight was smooth and I was sooooo happy to be so close to my happy place! After living in Jacksonville, FL, for 3 years, and going to WDW every 6-8 weeks, I was seriously jonesing for the World!!!!

Like Laura said, our wait for DME seemed to take forever, and then once on the bus, we sat there forever waiting to fill the bus so we could be on our way.

Before long we were pulling into Boardwalk, racing THRU the lobby and on to the International Gateway of Epcot.... after all, we had some DISmoms to meet!!!!!!

I will be back with my sister and her family, and my parents, to celebrate my parent's 50th anniversary, so I knew I would be upgrading to an annual pass (sorry, Ellen, you don't get credit for this one! ) so I got that all squared away and then Laura and I were on a beeline for........

The Ditch....... there were three DISmoms waiting for us there, and they had quite a head start!!!!!!

Kara -

I can totally relate to the Menopausal Golden Girl statement. Sometimes I think I am the poster child for menopause gone horribly wrong. OK - so maybe I am exaggerating just a little.

Loved your update and your pictures of all the moms. You guys are a such a fun group. We had a lot of solo time on all girl's trip, too. It was nice, because we all just naturally went different ways at different times.

Looking forward to more.

Can't wait to hear all about the trip. So... are you taking applications for any more DISMoms? I'd like to apply LOL! You girls all get the whole silly Disney thing and seem like alot of fun to hang out with. I started making trips to the world in 2004 when my brother moved to FL. From 2006 - 2009 or 10 DS and I had AP's (DH was not a big Disney fan but I did get him to make a couple of trips. We've since separted but he still bought us our passes until DS was going off to college and we gave them up. College boy isn't so interested in Disney with Mom anymore. Cant blame him.) I'm hoping to take my Dad in Oct. Mom just passed away a few weeks ago and would never get on a plane but Dad will so my next trip will be Columbus day weekend and the next couple of days to visit Disney and Universal (Dad is a big Harry Potter fan) but I would love to take a girls trip at some point. I have a few girlfriends who would love to make the trip but just can't for financial reasons so I would love to have some girls to hang out with.

So excited you started! Although our trips were at the same time, they were quite different! We did the Scavenger hunt & Destination D. They were really fun, BUT really hectic. We didn't spend much time having fun & relaxing in the parks which was difficult!

Your first pic is of my good friend Betsy!!!!

Can't wait to hear more!!!!!

OK, need to go upload my pics..... talk amongst yourselves.....
For me, I like to call the first one not good enough, the second is plus 10, I'm in big trouble, the last is back to not good enough.

And I don't know about you bein in anything resembling a HALO, Kara.....

Upgrade to 1st class for $69??? Which airlines?
Continental/United. Continental is the BIG carrier at Newark airport. But it used to be you upgraded online when you checked in- and for less. The first year I did it (when I went with just Loni) it was $49!!!!! Things change CONSTANTLY now because they merged with United, so who knows what's next? I will say that the breakfast was the BEST one I have had in first class- very yummy!

HI! The stick kids were a big hit- bartenders remembered us the next year with them!

LMAO I think there must be a seperate trip report for only those that were in world to see.. like what happens in the world stays in the world.. except for on a secure password protected photo sharing site.. not that I would know anything about that LMAO

This was the first year for me flying in for our annual trip, having moved back to SC this time last year. I am NOT a good flyer, so thanx to my new friend, "Mr Blue Pill" I was able to get on a plane and make it safely to Orlando.
You took viagra?

The Ditch....... there were three DISmoms waiting for us there, and they had quite a head start!!!!!!
on the chocolate milk right LOL

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.
I find all my designer gear at the local AM/PM lol


There was beverage service on this flight!.

Girl after my own heart!

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~
is that going to be the theme of this trip.. every good pics is "lost" lol

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

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.
See should have had the drink.. never pass us a drink!

I always think that's so funny!! Like you had a premonition when you were picking your name!

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.

New Minniflorilina...

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!.

Go Laura!

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~

What is with all the lost pics???

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


Yea- I'm with Drea- what do you mean you passed the fruity drink stand????

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.
UGH...the crying.....
