I really dislike flying into or out of Sanford Airport, it is 45 minutes from the Disney area.

It would have to be a very good deal for me to fly from there.

Sorry, ff topic:


To the OP - I am enjoying your trip report and photos. It's getting me excited for my December trip with my daughter....... leaving the boys at home.

I'm glad you liked Allegiant. I rented from alamo too. so I know how far away it is...and pulling a suitcase along doesn't make it any better, so I can imagine it raining yuck.
I know people say Sanford is too far away. but we never have made it from MCO any faster than we do from sanford, so it's not bad at all.

Keep the trip report coming. Can't wait to hear more. What part of SC did you live? We live in Augusta, Ga. I guess you can say we are neighbors.

I'm glad that you had a safe flight down--I loved seeing all the pics! I think I would have a little scared if the lightening was flashing!!! That makes me nervous on the ground, much less in a plane! I'm glad that the airports were easy to navigate.

Glad you're here!

It's a smaller size airport and I was glad it was pretty easy to navigate around. Did you find a good price?

Welcome to my TR! I LOVE our mom/daughter trips together.
I didn't have any problems with Sanford airport and didn't mind the extra hour driving time. It's better than the 10 hours I usually have to drive! Or all the hours on the Amtrak!

Yes, that was a long walk! And I agree, I didn't think the distance to WDW was bad at all from there.

We live about 40 miles from GSP, and only about 20 miles from the GA border, so we're not far to Augusta. So yeah, we're neighbors!

For those that have read some of my TR's or PTR's, know that I usually add in some "daily happenings" here & there, especially if it has anything to do with Disney. And to get in a little Disney fix, I'm so excited to say that in 5 days, we're going to see ..............................................

I am so excited. I have always wanted to see this, but would probably not ever get the chance to go to NYC, where they have the show. So when I heard it was coming to our area, I HAD to get tickets ASAP!

COOL!! I have heard great reviews of this show! Please do tell us how you liked it! We saw Broadway's Beauty and The Beast last year and it was AWESOME!

We arrived at our hotel, Best Western LBV, in the Downtwon Disney area. We stayed there last year, and loved it! Since it was late when we got there, I didn't get any outside pics, and for some reason I didn't take any at all while we were there. But I do have more pics in my June 2011 TR.


I did get a few pics inside, before we unpacked and crashed for the night.









This is probably one of my favorite parts of the hotel room:
2 spaces to get ready!! Much needed when you're traveling with a teen!!










A view looking toward the door, showing lots of storage space for luggage, etc.





The next morning as we were getting ready, I got a few pics of another favorite..... the balcony, and the view!!!







We had a great view of Downtown Disney!




We finally finished getting ready, and I snapped a pic of the rental car.





Next up: Magic Kingdom Day!

The hotel looks awesome and you had an AWESOME view!

Having that extra space was nice, I know! I don't think you could ever have too much getting ready space in a hotel!

The rental car is too cute!!

Can't wait to hear about MK!

Funny Story about that hotel...Last Nov we stayed there for one night before our Dream cruise, seemed like a really nice place to stay..We were all tucked in for the night and our room was chilly so we tried to turn our heat on. We waited for it to start, and waited, and waited. After about 20 min we decided to call and ask someone to look at it, normally we wouldn't care and would just have gone to bed but with DS's asthma, if the room was the slightest bit too cold he would wake up coughing and wheezing..((Which would lead to a not so fun B2B cruise)) Anywho, someone came up and told us they normally dont have the heat activated because people dont usually use it..He had to open a large vent in the ceiling to turn it on, all of a sudden we heard a gush of water! There was a build up in the vent and the water went everywhere!!! Can you even imagine having to switch rooms at 1am when you are trying to finish packing for a cruise and having to be up at 7am! I was not a happy camper!
