OK it has only been 3 months and I finally finished editing the pictures of the last day and I'm ready to finish off this report. But not tonight, Survivor is on.

August 26 - The Final Day




So for the first time we purposely scheduled a flight for late in the afternoon so that we could get in a little more park time. So one last check of the weather to make sure we would beat Irene up the coast. By this time, she moved further out to sea and wasn't going to impact Central Florida. We figured we were safe into Atlanta and hopefully beyond that. But before that, it was time to get moving.

We were up early and I headed to Resort Airline Check-in around 8 am. Fairly painless. Back to the room, grabbed the gang and headed to DHS arriving around 9:15. We wanted to do the big rides again so I grabbed FPs for RnR while pooksma and Declan hung out around ToT.



ToT had no wait so we walked right into the library.











Next up Declan wanted to do another drawing class so we headed back to Animation Studio and waited for the next class.







We then had our own Minnie sighting of the entire trip and then headed to the GMR.











It was then time to use our FPs for RnR before heading back to POFQ. We had managed to get a later checkout time of noon and we were going to be cutting it close.

Our last park picture of this trip.



We made it back right at noon and met up with a Mousekeeping supervisor at our room. The maid had asked her to check on us and apparently they weren't told we had a later check-out. All was straightened out and we grabbed our stuff and headed for the food court to grab some lunch and wait for ME.

I killed the time by taking some resort pictures that I will post in the next post.

A tour around POFQ































We had no problems getting back except a missing bag in Portland Maine. It was the only bag we checked and they seemed to have misplaced it. Luckily they did find it within 30 minutes and we were the last people to leave the airport.

We shopped our way back to the north side of the border and got ready to wait out what Irene would bring to us. Luckily for us, again, she missed us entirely.

So there you have it, our most recent trip. We haven't planned another for 2012 but we will be heading south. We are planning a surprise cruise for Declan so that will be our big trip for this coming year. I hope you have enjoyed our report and hopefully there will be more to come.

Nice pictures of the resort. It's a beautiful, smaller resort. Very peaceful feel to it.

You are surprising Declan with a cruise?
Aww, ignore the meanies comment.

If you happen to pass through Tennessee on your way to your port, we'll be ready for a meet.

Surprise cruise for his birthday in March and a trip to Montreal in early January to see the Canadians play the Winnipeg Jets. That will be one of his Christmas gifts.

I don't think Jet Blue will let us out of the plane on the way to Tampa. We'll see what we can do about that.

Last two weeks of August 2013. We will mark that one down. And just in case you didn't see my answer to MeMom just above, you are welcome to join us at the Bell Centre for the Habs-Jets game in January. Just don't expect us to cheer for the Jets, well Pooksma might.

Great job! Thanks for writing about your trip.

Looks like it was a good time. Going home is always hard, but getting another chance to do ToT and Rnr is always a good way to go out.

Thanks.

It was the first time we got to go to a park on the day of departure. It was a bit rushed by a nice way to finish the trip.

Thanks for reading along.

Thanks for reading.

We are doing a Carnival cruise out of Tampa. We did an eight day cruise last year with Carnival and really enjoyed it; this one will only be five days.

We have looked at Disney cruises a couple of times but they are a lot more expensive and on this upcoming trip, we couldn't make the dates work.

Glad you enjoyed it. Hopefully we will get a trip scheduled for 2013. Since we started going to WDW in 2004, we have only missed 2006 so this next year may go by slowly.

Great report! That was fun to read.... I just got back a week ago from DL, and now I'm looking at flights and dates to see when I can go back. I need a new job.... Teaching does not usually pay me enough to get two trips in a year!

Wow, didn't expect to see this report pop back up! Glad you enjoyed it.

We've never been to DL, do the two compare?
