The mini-monorail is amazing, it makes me feel like I'm really there in Orlando!
That's so awesome that you were moved to Casitas!! Luck seems to be on your side this trip.

Pulling up to the resort at the beginning of the vacation is one of the best parts. I love it!

Haha I totally get what you mean about the terminals! Every time I land at MCO in terminal A I get a little nervous trying to remember how to get to the ME counter! One time my sister and I walked all the way down of what I thought was the right level before I realized we were in the wrong terminal. My sister was like, didn't you just do this 4 months ago? Lol!
YAY lucky! 39 days seems like nothing compared to my 93!
I'm glad you understand! I'm pretty sure we did that exact same thing on this trip. It looks the same but it's the wrong terminal. Oh well. Fail. It's hard to remember.

What great pixie dust you got having your room changed to the building every one else was in. I can't wait to hear about the surprise.
Yay! I'm glad you understand lol
I was so happy that worked out! Only an update or two left until the surprise! WOOHOO!

I was freaking out i was so excited!

You guys were obviously excited because i noticed you both were making your deer face! It is definitely a good thing!

Lol at following the one family to the monorail. I would have done the same thing. Sometimes where the plane lands can throw me off because my sense of direction is thrown off.

glad you found your way around the airport.

I LOVE passing through the Disney Gates. Nothing like seeing signs saying your heading towards disney/Approaching Disney, and of course those awesome disney street signs (I get very child-like when i see those signs). I always begin to countdown as i'm approaching the magical disney gates as well.

Love how everyone fed off of how excited you were.

Nice that you managed to get a room near kristen.

can't wait for more
I know the plane never flies over Disney because we're coming from the opposite direction! I always used to look for Disney when I was little and then I figured out that you can't see it from the plane. oh well.
Haha Deer Face = VERY EXCITED
I completely understand. They're like the gates of heaven on earth!
And yay for Casitas! That worked out so nicely.

Ahh you made it!!

The feeling of getting on to Disney property and finally seeing those purple signs is indescribable! However, you do such a good job of conveying that feeling! I can feel the excitement in your words...if that makes any sense lol

Coronado looks like such a beautiful resort! Great that it was the first DME stop!

Whoa. I am insanely behind again. I really need to do a better job of keeping up.

The Pre-Trip Report:

I love that this trip was inspired by Disney pizza. It's so fitting.

Gosh, I miss devising elaborate plans with my friends to get something we want from our parents. It was always good times.

BRAVO on the whole 'sneaking Kristen's ADRs' thing. Your sneaking skills are truly impressive.

I love your t-shirts! It's so cool that you were all able to have them made. I also love your Disney nails. Especially Space Mountain. It's awesome.

I think I've said this a million times before, but you all have such fabulous hair. I'm having major hair envy.

Chapter 1:
AHHH! I love that 'I'm going to be at WDW TODAY!' feeling.

I love that you worked out before you left. That's dedication, girl. My lazy self would've been like 'Eh, I think I'll just go sit on my but and read the Disboards for a few hours.'

You guys looks so happy/excited! I'm getting happy/excited just from looking at the pictures! (Also, The Vampire Diaries is on soon and I'm kinda obsessed)

Coloring books are the best. As are cute boys and pita chips. OK, I guess a lot of things are the best...

Chapter 2:
HOORAY FOR ARRIVAL!!!

Following the family with Disney suitcases was an excellent plan.

Ah, the smell of Florida. It is divine.

Paul the Motor Coach Operator sounds awesome. I love fun CMs.

Sometimes when I need to smile/cry my eyes out, I watch videos of kids being surprised with trips to WDW on Youtube. I can't wait until I have children of my own to surprise.

YAY DISNEY SIGNS! YAY CSR!

I'm so glad there was a room available for y'all in Casitas 5. The Ranchos are lovely, but walking all the way to the Casitas to meet up with Kristen and Co. would have been a pain.

Yay for being in the same building! I love the rooms in Coronado Springs (so clean and pretty, especially the wooden doors and the runners on the bed) and really want to stay there some time.

I think the cruise buses look so cool - on the outside. The weird fabric on the seats is always so uncomfortable! I guess they don't want to encourage people to stay on too long?

I have been to disney so many times and i literally don't think i've ever been this excited to arrive. (and most of you have read my other trip reports... You know i'm always excited.) this time was just over-the-top, about to burst-at-the-seams excitement.

We were literally spazzing out. People were probably staring... And they probably thought we were insane... And that poor dad sitting next to us probably could not wait to get off of the plane.

Do you notice how it always smells like "florida" when you get off of that mini-monorail? I do.
It's got that "new Florida smell". Can you buy that in air freshener form?

No matter how many times I go to WDW, I always get more excited when I first arrive than I did last time. People probably think I'm nuts...And they would be right!

I've never been to Coronado Springs before, but the theme, decor, and the pool look incredible, judging from pictures I have seen. I'm looking forward to learning more about it through your trip report.
