Lightbulb We'll sleep when we get home! A fun-filled mother/daughter vacation! (Updated 1/21)

HELLLLOOOOO HUMANS! (That's the part where you wave your arms in the air and scream!)

My mom and I just got home from our trip to the World at about 12am last night. I was planning on starting the trip report as soon as I got back - but I was way too tired. So here we go!

We MUST start with our introductions before we get too carried away! For those of you who haven't read my pre-trip report, hi, my name is Stephanie. I'm 14 years young and I have a extremely strong passion for all things Disney. My favorite movie is Beauty and the Beast and my favorite attraction is the TTA Peoplemover. I'm an only child and I live in New York with my two parents who I love very much. I love learning new things and I'm going to be a Sophomore next month. I'm sure you'll get to know me better by my writing in this TR, so I'll leave it at that. This is me:



Next up is my mom. She works in the media at a company in Manhattan. She's always my best friend, and my favorite person to go to Disney with (Well, the only person I have been with ) but my favorite nonetheless. Her favorite movie is Finding Nemo and her favorite attraction is the TTA Peoplemover. This is mommy:



This is my first trip report - so please bear with me! I'm excited for others to hear about our lovely trip! We're going to Disney again on Thanksgiving - so hopefully I'll finish this by then. So get excited for the next 102 days!!

Day 1 - Traveling to a very magical kingdom!

Today was the day. We had a very early flight and I was up out of bed by 5:15 in the morning. I made my bed and everything, which surprised my parents to say the least! But what can I say? I had been ready to go for the longest time! Our luggage had been packed about 2 weeks prior (we were that excited ) and it was all lined up and ready to go.



Daddy drove us to JFK at 6 on the dot and we made it there with really good timing. We were there before 6:30! We live in Brooklyn, so I guess Queens isnt too far away when theres no traffic. We have a marina near our mall and it looked BEAUTIFUL that morning with the sun rising over it. I wanted to take a picture, but my camera was packed in a bag in the very back of the car so I couldnt get a picture.

When we finally arrived at the Delta drop-off place, we were a little confused about if we were in the right place because everyone around us seemed to have a passport and we were just going to Orlando! We usually fly out of LGA, but that is a long drive so we decided to fly out of JFK this year. It was a little confusing at first (and when we arrived back home on the 13th - but well get to that later!) but we managed. Daddy helped us get our luggage out of the trunk and to the curb. We both hugged him goodbye and he was off. In case you were wondering, he doesnt come with us because he is a drummer in a band that plays for weddings and different events. He doesnt find out about his gigs far enough in advance to book a vacation - and if he misses a gig, hes out. But he is fine without going. He has lived all around the country, including California, so he's been to Disneyland a lot (And his friends got banned from going on Pirates of the Caribbean...but that's a whole other story! ) He gets the whole house to himself and we get a little break!

Scanning was a breeze. I was terrified of being selected as a random for a pat-down, but luckily we both made it through without any trouble. Unfortunately, an elderly lady in front of us in line did not have the same luck, and was pulled over for a very lengthy pat-down. We both felt so bad for her. We headed toward the Delta section but stopped at Dunkin Doughnuts to get some breakfast. I ordered a whole-wheat bagel with cream cheese and an apple juice and mommy ordered a blueberry muffin and a coffee. There must have been a lack of communication because we ended up with a plain bagel with cream cheese, apple juice, and a coffee. It was no big deal, I just took the plain bagel and mommy went through the line again to order ANOTHER blueberry muffin.

After that we went to the gate and just sat for a little while. Sooner than later, we were boarding! : I had my iPhone packed with tons of Disney music to keep me busy along the way.

We waited to take off



And we were finally up, up and away!

Great start! (: Glad to see you got through all the airport craziness smoothly. I feel so bad for the lady who had to get the pat-down. And I'm sorry about your Dunkin' Donuts order debacle, I think they give you a refund if they mess up your order... something to know for next time And a big to your iPhone of Disney Music, a great way to get into the mode (:

Can't wait to read more!

Thank you! There's not many pictures in this first update, but there will be eventually. I think I took about 1500, and that doesn't include the ones on my phone! It was very sad to see. I'm all about safety - but I think they're taking it to the extreme. I didn't know that about Dunkin' Donuts! Ha well thanks for the info. One of my favorites on my phone is the Magic Kingdom entrance loop. It's about an hour long so that kept me occupied for most of the flight!
