Wow - what a day you had! I would have left that hotel too I'm so glad you got a reservation just in time as your phone died - what pixie dust you had!

I have always wanted to move near WDW and am so happy you are sharing your adventure with us

That was quite a first day....but how nice you could hop a bus to DTD, enjoy some times there and then back on the bus to ASMo...even with a little extra UNentertainment! I'm surprised the driver didn't say something - it used to that such behavior would never be tolerated. I sure would have wanted to say something, but of course, wouldn't.

All in all, it turned out to be a pretty good rest of the day...but only because it ended at Disney!

Looking forward to hearing all about the next day's app'ts!

I want to eat at Fulton's someday but also do not like my food to be looking at me. Can not wait to read more.

Oh my!! What an adventure for your first day! I'm glad it all worked out but I would have had a melt down. That's funny that you had WDW room reservations phone # memorized.

I can totally relate to your secret stash of $ that DH doesn't know about... I had that until I had to spill my guts. Now I've just moved it to another hiding place!

Enjoying the trip report! So glad you got the heck out of Bates Motel, as KOOK called it over to your happy place, Disney! Laughed so hard about your lobster. I totally agree, I don't want my food to have eyes looking at me

HOLY MOLY!

•I'm glad you got out of that place (and a refund!). Gross, gross. A possibly bed bug infestation would freak me out too. I don't think I could stay there either!
•I also cannot believe you checked in and stayed at a value resort! Glad you liked Movies, though!
•The Mighty Ducks room is pretty spiffy!
•That's a bummer about Fulton's...especially because you had to name your dinner.

What is a mystery hat pin?

I'm happy to be documenting it! I know that lots of it contemplate it every time we go. Every trip to and from MCO on Magical Express... I stare out the window wondering if I'm going to live at the complex that I can see from the highway. It's really happening, and I'm both nervous and excited at the same time!!

Your tardiness is excused due to having a family that needs you I liked the refurb and the fact that it had a mini refrigerator now! I had actually read online that people still walked and DIDN'T get their money back. They must have known not to mess with me

The bus was so full--he played the "sit down" recording about 3 times. It did nothing, so he gave up. After all the mess.... I went to bed smiling because I was in Disney World

Well... I think I was too nervous to have a meltdown, lol. My survival skills kicked in and I was running on adreniline. Lol--he went in my wallet to get the checkbook the other day, and saw I had a new stash building, lol. I quickly let him know that it was going toward the new mattress, and if he blew it, I would be on the floor I've had the number memorized since I would call from my previous work and I had to dial it. I miss that job since they got sold I could Dis and make calls all day

Lol---that fear goes wayyyyyyyy back to when my dad used to take me fishing. He knew I wasn't eating it unless the face was cut off, lol. I'm still a child when it comes to food, lol.

Welcome to the party!!! First of all--I miss you a ton... why does life have to get busy after weddings?? I'm glad I got to check a value resort off my bucket list. The refurb is great right?

I haven't 100% figured out my iPad... love it... just a little technology challenged. Lol--I wasn't 100% sure how to eat it either. The mystery hats are a new mystery set. I think there's 16 or 20 in the set. You get 5 in a bag. I got a bag last time, but just to trade. DH didn't tell me he wanted the whole set, and there I am trading them away Sooooooo I was given instructions to get more this time, lol.

..... I lost the post by Goldeelox????? WELCOME Glad you're here!!!
