Oh my gosh, McGriddles are my guilty pleasure. Anytime I just feel the need to comfort myself with food I go get a sausage McGriddle with no egg. SO GOOD!

Boo to delayed flights! On our way home from our honeymoon John and I got stuck in the Atlanta airport for TWELVE hours. Ugh. That was awful!

I'm glad to see you guys kept yourselves so entertained, though! I have been cracking up at your pictures and your SkyMall discoveries!

AHHH I've got to get better about keeping up with these Weak Sauce points!

I was a bit flabbergasted to find that when I logged on and decided to try catching up on your TR, thinking it wouldn't be too bad since there was only 10 pages, I had no idea how many updates you had posted. Crazy.

Here comes the comments (again)

Love all the wedding photos. Perfection. Looks like it was still a wonderful day and a beautiful ceremony, even though you didn't want all the attention. Looks like it turned out fun.

Love, love, love the Luke & Lorelai shout out on the invitation. Speaking of GG, do you watch the new show Bunheads on ABC Family? Reminds me a lot of GG. And do you know that the show Hart of Dixie on the CW uses the Stars Hollow set?

Love the fuchsia flats. So cute and they look comfy. Love it.

You are amazingly talented with your crafty skills. I know who I am coming to if I need something cute like that.

Wedding woes - I sympathize. I know how hard it was to juggle having the things you want with the things the families wanted. I knew there were just certain things that I couldn't avoid with his family. They are very traditional.

Homemade Egg Mcmuffins are yummy. As a matter of fact, I think I now need to get some English muffins for breakfast to make that soon.

your airplane story is why I like to travel Jet Blue. Built in TVs and snacks galore.
Aww, that stinks! I hate when that happens and I lose a post. Since it's the summer for me, I can post a lot more often than I did with my previous trip reports. Plus, I finally figured out a better way to upload my photos and Howard's photos without having to sort through them when I want to post something.

I'm so glad that the wedding is over! There was so much going on that you know already, like the tea ceremony and all that. Oy, it caused a lot of stress!

I'm hoping to do more crafty things like that in the future! I love cards, but I think the 3-D things are so much fun too!

I hope to travel JetBlue next time! Howard felt bad that he didn't book that. They had flights around the same time for the same price, but he didn't realize it or something like that.

Haha, it's 12:07am, and now I'm craving a McGriddle. They really are the perfect definition of a guilty pleasure!

Oh man, I'm glad our delay was NOTHING like your 12 hours!

Weak Sauce Points will be up for grabs in just a moment!

Dipping My Way to Happiness

When we landed, I was beyond thrilled because I was so done with being on the plane despite it being less than 3-hour flight (oh man, how am I supposed to last on a flight to Disneyland?!?). I was also STARVING! Our first order of business was to get food, but that didn't mean we weren't enjoying the fact that we were ALREADY IN FLORIDA!



It looks so different than the airports in New York and New Jersey!



I was very excited to ride the fake monorail. I just couldn't quite understand how it looked when I saw it in other people's TRs. I was like, um, Tron? Is this the way into the game? Yes, I've seen the original and Tron: Legacy. I married a geek after all.



I decided that this was about the time to start taking video! During our April trip with my family and during the honeymoon, I was trying to get more video than pictures since I know that Howard has the picture part covered. That means you get the privilege of watching my videos and listening to my narration even though I'll probably be giving you a summary of what's in the video anyway ... haha.

Video: Arrival at MCO

It was insanely bright and sunny; we couldn't get over it! We were hoping it wasn't going to be that hot considering it was really nice in April.



This is so fun to examine when you're on your way TO Disney, but when we took the fake monorail back to the airport when we had to return, it wasn't fun at all. It also was very fitting that it was raining then (ooo, spoiler alert, hahahaha).



I specifically waited at to get the front car because I wanted to have a view of the ride. I didn't actually know where it went and all that! They have monorails at Newark Airport, but I've never actually had a reason to ride it. I also remember a lot of DIS kids sitting on this little bench, watching the scenery pass by, and I decided that I would be a DIS kid!



And this is just the start of it, but if you're a new reader, you'll be seeing just how much I love TRACKS! I love ride vehicles on tracks, and that'll definitely be something we try to get on each ride when possible. The fake monorail was no exception!



Video: Riding the Fake Monorail at MCO

I was thinking that on the way back, we'd have a lot of time to kill so we didn't go into the Disney store that was there. We'd have plenty of time to shop during the week. It'd be pretty funny if we let go of some of our hard earned money before even leaving the airport (I mean, other than for food purchaes!).



MORE SUN!



I got a kick out of these moving sidewalks here too! It's not like we were tired or anything since we had been sitting during the delay and sitting on the plane, but I guess the inner kid just comes out, and these things are just awesome!



It is a perfect opportunity to turn around and get a picture of your HUSBAND though since you don't have to actually walk!

(continued from previous post)

And then just a few moments later, Howard snapped this picture of me! There was no way we were going to go straight to the Magical Express just in case that ride and check-in took a while. Like I said earlier, we were STARVING! We just wanted to eat! We knew we were going to eat at the airport anyway even if we did arrive on time. I got excited because I saw the food court!



Video: Our First Meal in Florida - Chik-Fil-A

If you watched the video, you heard that we were starting our trip in true Sarah fashion! Our friend Sarah, wdwgirl03 (the only DISer we've met with ... TWICE!), always starts her trip off with Chik-Fil-A! I've seen it so many times that I just knew we had to do the same! The closest one to where we live is actually in New Jersey, and we don't really make trips to NJ just for Chik-Fil-A. I see it a lot driving down to Florida, but we never stop there even though we totally should! I mean, Wendy's restaurants are everywhere. Gotta eat what you don't have as often back at home!



I knew that I wanted chicken nuggets because I am a DIPPER. That's the other thing you need to know about me. I love ride vehicles on their tracks, and I love dipping my food! Seriously, I won't want to eat meat because I'm not that big of a fan, but if you give me something to dip it in, I'm all for it. Case in point? 'Ohana. All that meat on skewers? Yuck. Serve it with 3 dipping sauces? Yahoo! Oh man, now I'm in the mood for 'Ohana. I digress.



We ordered a Sprite to share becaue we decided that any time we were having fried food, we'd have a soda so that I wouldn't get sick. What is it with soda and fried food? It just works so well together! Without it, I'd feel all greasy inside, and then I'd end up having tummy trouble or nausea later on. Ahhh, soda. I can't have Coke though, and that's what the person gave us. Whoops! Howard pointed it out, and we got a new one. I was wondering what the guy was going to do with the Coke, but he just poured it into his cup or something and drank it. I was happy that it wasn't going to be wasted.



While we were waiting for our food, I took a picture of our carry-on luggage. We put the tag for AKL with Howard's name on the bag we checked in, and the plan was to save mine for scrapbooking or something since this Disneymoon was the first thing that had my maiden and new last name on it! When we about to the board the plane, the lady at the desk said we were going to have to check it in because there wasn't room on the plane, so we asked if we should put the tag on it. It ended up that we put it on because we thought we had to give it in, but the guy taking the strollers and such closer to the entrance of the plane told us that we should see if there was room and to bring it back if not. Thankfully, we were able to fit it in our overhead compartment without a problem. Too bad though; I would've liked to have kept that tag!



It's okay though. Tag or no tag, I was still Rachel Ninja-Weird!



Where's my food? I'm hungry!



Okay, so you know how I said that I have a thing for ride vehicles on tracks and try to get pictures of it? Howard's thing is light fixtures. I don't quite know why. I guess it's because Disney takes the time to have amazing light fixtures that most guests probably don't notice. A lot of the times he just takes them really quickly though since we're on the move. It's not like he stops to compose a certain shot (haha, at least not if I'm waiting for him).



We finally had our food and were ready to NOM it all!



Howard ordered a chicken sandwich. I wouldn't have minded that as long as I could also get some dip with it too, haha. Even with sandwiches, I like dipping as opposed to putting the sauce ON the sandwich itself. I'm the kind of person who dips her cheeseburgers into the ketchup that was poured onto the plate.



Look at that goodness! So different than the processed stuff that makes up McDonald's chicken McNuggets. Not to say I don't eat that once in a blue moon with plenty of sweet and sour sauce though ...



Is it just me or do waffle fries just seem more wholesome? I don't feel as guilty eating them, as if they're a little healthier than normal fries, haha.



And what dip did I choose? Honey mustard! Yum! I don't really stray far from the typical barbecue, honey mustard, or sweet and sour choices. They're just so classic and so delicious! This one was particularly good. It had more of a mustard taste to it as opposed to the Wendy's sauce. I like to think myself a sauce connoisseur. And by connoisseur, I mean "weird-girl-who-can-go-on-and-on-about-sauce-in-a-TR-about-WDW." If you read "Delicious Indeed," you'll remember I purposely ordered a meal from Chicken Now just because they had a special sauce. Um, should I move on?



A ring picture! My first Chik-Fil-A meal MARRIED!



I like it when restaurants provide reading material. Of course, I didn't read it until just before I typed this sentence.



I didn't finish all my delicious nuggets because I was feeling satisfied. I didn't want to be overstuffed before the Magical Express experience. Don't worry; I don't like letting food go to waste, so I took those bad boys with me for a snack later on! No more dawdling though! With our stomachs filled, we were ready to move one step closer to our destination!

Weak Sauce Points

Round 4: Character Scrambler

Directions
1. Figure out the word or words for each clue.
2. Identify the mystery letter from each clue.
3. Unscramble all the mystery letters to reveal the mystery character, which will be a character in any Disney movie!

Clue #1 (2nd letter)
The statue of Walt holding Mickey's hand is called the __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ statue. Although none of these stories are true according to Disney historian Jim Korkis, many say that Walt is pointing towards the future, the future location of Epcot, the statue of his brother Roy to carry out his dream, or the trains because of his great love of them.

Clue #2 (2nd letter)
One of the differences between Cinderella Castle in WDW and Sleeping Beauty Castle in DLR is that the former cannot raise its __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __.

Clue #3 (5th letter)
At the end of each day during Star Wars Weekends, you can watch the Hyperspace Hoopla, which is a dance competition for the SW characters hosted by Snig and __ __ __ __ __!

Clue #4 (1st letter)
In one of the Epcot attractions, the character __ __ __ __ __ __ __ welcomes you to his open house where everything is upside down!

Clue #5 (1st letter of 1st word)
Kidani Village is the DVC part of Animal Kingdom. When it was built, they needed to distinguish it from the main part of the resort, so they gave the big building the name of __ __ __ __ __ / __ __ __ __ __.

And the mystery character is ... __ __ __ __ __!

So I saw in my subscriptions you updated with the date 7/6 and I'm like it's not the 6th yet...then I remembered you guys are an hour ahead of us. haha

WOO HOO, you made it to Orlando!!! This update was very exciting! I just love that feeling of first arriving at MCO and getting on the fake monorail. As for the flight to Disneyland-ugh, that is a long one. Especially since the 2 times we've gone we've had to fly to Minneapolis and THEN to California.

And YAY Chick-Fil-A! You are right, good thing it wasn't a Sunday-that would've been sad. Like you said, you have to eat what you don't have at home on vacation. Aww man, I could really go for some of those nuggets right now. Yum!

Jafar? I need to get out a pencil and paper for these!

I love Chik Fil A, but we don't have any around where I live either. And, I married a dipper, so I understand

I missed the Gilmore Girls reference before, but I LOVE that show. I watch the reruns on ABC Family all the time. Bunheads is pretty good- not as good as GG -but Kelly Bishop is in it and she's always flawless.

Loved the update, looking forward to more!

Yay for Chic-Fil-A!!! I eat it WAY more than I should (pretend this is the rolling eyes, whistling smiley that I'm too lazy to click on [More] to find, it used to be on the main list to the right!). By the way, if you like Sweet and Sour sauce you should totally try Polynesian sauce at Chic-Fil-A. It's delicious! It's the only sauce I use there now (and I, too, am a dipper. All of my favorite foods have a lot of hand involvement ).

Way to have restraint (and the forethought!) not to run to Magical Express! I have no patience and would have run there, only to be dying of starvation for the next two hours before I could get somewhere for food.

I about died laughing reading this! So true! I hate people watching me sleep and I know if someone pulled one of those bad boys out and was facing me while they slept, I would spend the whole flight trying not to stare at him/her.

I got Jafar.

I LOVE dipping food too! It is THE reason to go to O'Hana...ah so many choices! When we drive down, we try to avoid places that we have back home too, so we do stop at a Chic-fil-a every now and then...it is pretty good! I remember when you wrote about eating at Cracker Barrel in one of your other TRs--it looked so good that we stopped there when we were driving down for our Disneymoon, now we eat breakfast at Cracker Barrel on every trip, so for that, I thank you!

Alright, your bellies are full of chicken-y goodness...off to Disney! Looking forward to more, your TR is like my morning paper.

I totally agree about eating where you don't have at home. (Does that sentence even make sense?). We try to eat at familure, yet unique places while traveling.

My favorite Chick-fil-a dipping sauce is the Polynesian. It is sweet but tastes good with chicken and fries. Plus it reminds be of the Polynesian Resort at WDW!

Hi Rachel I'm Katie. I've seen you around on the Dis and the "Disneymoon" in your TR title caught my eye this morning. I'm a big sucker for weddings and all the mushy gooshy stuff that goes along with it so I had to check it out!

I've only gotten through the wedding part of your report but loving it!! thanks for including all the story background, it was jun to read I'm a lot like you in my tastes. Although I loved planning my own wedding, I really tried to stay focused on the reason for it and not get caught up in all the fluff and wanted it to be fun and relaxed. I love the venues you choose (love the light and natural feel of it all!)

Looking forward to your Disney arrival!

And by connoisseur, i mean "weird-girl-who-can-go-on-and-on-about-sauce-in-a-tr-about-wdw." if you read "delicious indeed," you'll remember i purposely ordered a meal from chicken now just because they had a special sauce. Um, should i move on?



a ring picture! My first chik-fil-a meal married!



i like it when restaurants provide reading material. Of course, i didn't read it until just before i typed this sentence.



i didn't finish all my delicious nuggets because i was feeling satisfied. I didn't want to be overstuffed before the magical express experience. Don't worry; i don't like letting food go to waste, so i took those bad boys with me for a snack later on! No more dawdling though! With our stomachs filled, we were ready to move one step closer to our destination!

I love going to Chick-fil-a! It's one of my favorite restaurants to eat at. Plus I love getting the cookies & cream milkshake too! Yum! Love reading your TR! Can't wait to read more. I have been thinking of starting at PTR for our Disneymoon next month! We'll see if that happens.

Here's the problem with reading trip reports. How is it that everyone seems to have fun doing things like arriving at the airport, riding the fake monorail and grabbing some food? You TR'ers are really good at either finding fun in the little moments or writing in a way to make the rest of us mere mortals envious that you got delayed at the airport and got to hang out there for 2 hours!

Regardless, I'm very much enjoying your trip report.
