Nice start - do you always fly Southwest? I'm heading out of O'Hare tomorrow and the AA rates were highly competitive with SW for the first time I've seen. Of course, that's because I'm only carrying on - I wish O'Hare had a SW terminal too.

That is hilarious about Farrell waking up so suddenly while you guys were landing!! That seems like something I would do! I can sleep like a baby on a plane; though I think they'd wake me up to tell me to put my seat up, since I always recline.

YAY you arrived! I can't imagine getting in that late! But I, like you ladies, would have had to unpack too.
Poly looks so amazing!

Awesome update!

Glad to be hearing from the famous Yeti. I'm gonna love hearing his perspective on traveling with two crazy girls!

Joining in! A girls trip sounds perfect. And at the Poly. Even better than perfect.

Ugh I'd be so annoyed if someone sat between Brandon and I...I can't stand when people sit in our row!

Yay, the Poly!! Your room is so beautiful! Did you make any room requests?

Sorry .... I couldn't resist !!
I know, 3am was pretty late. But the alternative was picking a flight that was about $75 more expensive and we both wanted our spending money.

You picked up on my reference. He's on lucky Yeti....

I normally try to fly Southwest or AirTran, because they fly out of Milwaukee and that airport is more convenient for me location wise. We chose Southwest this time because of the no baggage fees. I wish O'Hare had one too.

It was pretty funny when she woke up. Then she started looking around all cool like "oh, nothing really happened". I never sleep on planes, but I do the doze a little and then scare yourself awake thing.

It wasn't as bad as I thought arriving that late. I think we were both excited. I have to unpack right away, otherwise I'll never get around to doing it.

Liquid relaxation is the best kind of relaxation. I'm glad the story gets better with each book. I keep reading this one until I fall asleep at night. Can't wait to move on to the next one.

This trip was tons of fun. And we were very fortunate to be staying at the Poly thanks to my parents and DVC.

Amazingly enough, neither one of us had the grumps. I was amazed. We were very excited to go though, so I think that kept us going.

Yeti....he has a problem.

I'm sure that he's going to have a lot to say.

This is my third New Year's at WDW and it was busier longer than I expected. I knew that it would be busy the first few days of the holiday, but it stayed busy well into the week for sure.

Yeah, both Farrell and I felt like a classy place like the Poly definitely was not ready for us.

It was definitely the perfect trip for sure. I so wish we could have stayed longer.

Oh my goodness, I know! I was like . No way! To his credit, he was pretty aware of himself and didn't encroach upon our space.

The only room request that I had made at online checkin was that it be close to transportation. I wanted to be closer to the parking lot for the car and close to the buses. This was definitely the closest longhouse to the bus and parking lot.

There's some unwritten rule about airport restaurants - they're vaguely depressing with food that's mediocre but with nothing to actually complain about and way too many people are eating there. I don't understand! I've never flown Southwest, their whole setup seems really.. awkward? (we fly Frontier - free chocolate chip cookies!!) Was the weird baggage lady from the airport? Who even wants to hear directions at 1AM anyway? Any time past midnight and it's a free-for-all as far as I'm concerned!

The rooms at the Poly are so pretty! And massive! Are there lights inside the wardrobes/closets/mysterious grass-y doors?
