I made apple martinis everyday as my pool drink. That doesn't include the in park drinks.

You know - I can't go to the MK with out thinking about our idea for a shooter stand right outside Fantasyland.

This was the best flight crew EVER! They were hysterical, although slightly irreverent. I loved them, although their might be some people who found them offensive. It may have been a bit much for the first time flier with plane anxiety. I was cracking up left and right!

Yes - a full can of soda IS a measure for a good flight.

It took me a while to get into the book and just as I really started getting into it - guess what??????? I left it at one of the BWI quiet pools the afternoon before we left and it never showed up in the lost and found. sniff sniff. I am going to order a new copy when I order Nick's summer reading books.

I know he felt like crap but he was a trooper and, with the exception of buying two different types of cold meds (which are essentially the same), he went with the flow.

The funny thing was when we were waiting in the airport to board this kid behind my started coughing with the most horrendous cough ever. I went right to the bathroom and washed my hands again.

It was wonderful. It was my first experience and I loved it. I am so sad that Air Tran pulled their service from there. Honestly, I don't know why anyone who lives in that area would go to Philly when they can fly from there. Can't say enough good things about it.

I think that's partially true, but NOT when you are staying at a treehouse (as you will see). I did have the advantage of having the AAA diamond parking pass, so that helped. And we needed the car for our trip to Daytona!

Heyyyy what a great travel day! So smooth. Other than Denny's cold! Yikes, hope that didn't last long!
I knew I had to at least start even though I didn't write much. I have all my pictures downloaded and the first day edited, so I'm off to a good start. I should do another update later this week!

Don't say anything else...nah nah nah not listening. I lost the book my last day. I'm almost positive I left it at the quiet pool at the BWI and it didn't show up in Lost & found. I was really getting into it and was SO disappointed I didn't have it to read on the way home. I am going to order another copy.

Disneymoon! You are very fortunate to live near such a cool little airport. Loved it. I hope we get a chance to fly from there in the future. It was awesome not paying for parking and for getting to see Denny's mom.

I see you have a new baby on the way and a trip in 4 months! Congratulations!

That flight crew was an absolute blast. We had all girls on the return flight and they were not nearly as funny.

My sentiments exactly! I find flying from a new location to be part of the adventure. It was fun and interesting. Yeah - I'm a geek that way!

CW4DW! Thanks so much for joining in! Ugh - that's got to be so frustrating for you. I have found since the SWA/Air Tran merger the flight schedules from my closest airports stink.

So the flight attended then came on and said "despite what the next announcement says we will be going to our scheduled stop" They then went on to welcome us on board our flight to Regina via Montreal. The Captain even went along with it when he made his announcement about landing in Orlando and said "as you can see we have not gone to Regina via Montreal but are in beautiful sunny Orlando."
EastYorkDisney Fan! Thanks for joining in! what a funny story. Did any of the other passengers stop and say "WTH?" when the flight attendant made that announcement. That's great that everyone paid attention and went along with it. But those poor kids must have been so confused when they got off the plane in Florida.

I bet Manchester is a nice airport and you are lucky to have that alternative.

I LOVED that airport. I only hope I get a chance to fly from there again. The woman who checked in our bags double as the gate agent. How can this be a losing proposition for the airline. They don't even need their own ground employees.

The casino is actually several thousand yards away from those old steel stacks. They did a really good job refurbing that area and I am sure there are more plans in the works, but I used to think it would be horrible to be trapped in one of those buildings overnight. EEK!

Glad you liked the kid's pics! They really were excited about this trip, but it really was hard to herd them all together. Still, seeing the world through their eyes makes it all worthwhile.

They really were making the most out of their jobs and it was so entertaining. They could do a stand up routine just on the material they were doing on the plane. Really funny!

That's exactly what I did and it paid off. Some guy swooped in there one morning with this combo of a code and a coupon and *pow* Big Savings. I was thrilled!

It took me a little while to get into the book, but once I did I really looked forward to reading it and then *BAM* the worst thing happened! I lost the book. I think I left it at the pool and it wasn't in the lost & found. I will be ordering a new one soon.

Jen! So sorry your computer is still not working. You're waiting for a power cord, right? I hope you get it soon. I hate being computerless. It's such a drag.

Hey - enjoy it while the baby is small and is sleeping a lot. Portability is important. I don't think you are insane at all! Congrats!

Hi. I read along on your last trip report and am looking forward to reading this one too. I always enjoy your drink selections and photography. I am even going to visit Williamsburg this fall after reading your TR.

Hi, I'm subscribing! I was just browsing trip reports to get hooked on and first you reeled me in with the love of our local airport, only a 1/2 hour away from me and where we always try to fly out of. But you really got me with the non-committal family members, I love it!! Can't wait to see how this goes!!!

Yeah there was a bit of that but also since the airline in question has a bit of a reputation of fooling around like that most people understood that. I think the kids were really excited about landing there as they were going to WDW.

Another time on WestJet the airline in question one of the pilots was welcoming everyone one on board to there no stop flight to Calgary, at the time they didn't have that as an option. All flights to Orlando were out of Toronto.

cmaee! Thanks so much for joining in. I will definitely be posting more drink pictures - shock - I know!

Yeah for Williamsburg. I hope you love it! I would really like to go back there at the end of the summer but I already have too many getaways planned. I know - poor me! If you have any questions just let me know. And if you need the name of a good VRBO contract for a rental just pm me.

ireneryan! Thanks for joining in! You've got a great little airport in your backyard. Initially my DH was not thrilled with the idea of flying from ABE but he lightened up when I said we would be visiting his mom first. After the whole experience he loved it!

And - yes - there will be drama with the family members! Stay tuned for that.

I can't even imagine being a kid and arriving in Orlando to be told I am going to Disney world. That's awesome. I admire parents who can pull off a surprise like that because I never could. I can't keep a secret like that to save my live!

Now that probably caused a bit of confusion! Too funny!
