Cut the Drama Stay with Mama...A Mother/Daughter Trip Report (Updated 2/15)

Come on!
.
.
.
.
Let me hear it!
.
.
.
.
I have only one question!
.
.
.
.
ARE YOU READY?????
.
.
.
.
It’s time for The Disney adventures of QuirkyBelle and MamaBelle!




Experience the excitement as we hunt down elusive vinylmations. Feel the suspense as we do battle with Zurg. Wait with anticipation as we attempt to meet the seven dwarves.

****************************

Warning!

For your safety, you should be in good health and free from high blood pressure, heart, back or neck problems, motion sickness, or other conditions that could be aggravated by this adventure. Expectant mothers should not ride.

*****************************

Okay…okay…so maybe our trip was more of a spin on Dumbo than a ride on Rock N Rollercoaster, a turn on Astro Orbiters instead of an expedition on Expedition Everest if you will. But hey, not every vacation can be as thrilling as Tower of Terror. Know what I’m saying? Regardless, even if this trip report doesn’t need a warning label, it was still a really awesome time and I can’t wait to share it with all of you.

So if you think you’re up for the ride, stick around. It should prove to be a pretty good time.

For your convenience
Day 1 Part 1- What do you do when your pilot has the flu???
Day 1 Part 2 - One poodle skirt, two sombreros, and three magic kings!

So who exactly are we???

So before the real fun starts, let’s get down to the nitty gritty details.

You see, back in July my mom had a bit of a health scare. Around this time I realized that because I live on my own now, I don’t get to see my mom all that often. This thought, combined with the health scare made me determined to do so something special with my mom because our time together is limited nowadays. You see, my mom has always wanted to visit Disney at Christmas, but because of my dad’s work schedule she’s never been able to go at that time. So, after wracking my brain for days and days, the light bulb finally lit up, and I decided to take her to Disney right before Christmas. If you’re dying to hear more about the decision making process, check out the PTR link in my signature, but I won’t blame you if you don’t.

Well now that I’ve sufficiently bored everyone…on to the official introductions!


QuirkyBelle…That’s me! I’m a 23 year grad student slaving away in Pennsylvania in order to earn my PhD in ecology. Let me tell you, I LOVE it, though maybe not quite as much as Disney. I’m pretty sure this was my 14th trip to Disney, but it was the first one I’ve paid for. Yep, that’s right, on my rinky-dinky grad school salary I paid for this entire trip! I think that covers the last 23 years of homemade birthday presents for mom…


MamaBelle…my awesome, sweet, absolutely perfect mother! She’s just about the best nursery school teacher on the planet and always puts herself last. I’m so glad we were able to take this trip together, and I’ve heard rumors that this might become an annual thing.


Pop Century! We stayed there from December 17th – December 20th and it’s now one of my top 5 favorite Disney hotels. I can’t believe how much fun we had staying there because sometimes we tend to be resort snobs. But worry not; this place far exceeded my expectations. I hope Pop Century and I have many more encounters in the future. By the way, I know this picture is horrible but it's the only one I have of this sign.

Now that all business has been taken care of, I do believe we can start the trip of this trip report. Look for an update within the next week.

I can have a tendency to be a resort snob too, but I'm with you, I love POP. It's such a great place to stay and such a great price point.
