On The Road!

Thursday, July 5th

My brothers and I had woken up bright and early, at 5:45 (my parents had woken up before us, to get everything ready and pack up the car).



I had painted my nails Minnie Mouse style the day before


We got dressed, got all our belongings together, and put our pillows/blankets/travel bags by our seats in the car.
We didn't have to worry about our dog this morning, because we had dropped him off at "camp" the day before!

Before the car was packed:


After:


My mom did a really good job fitting everything in!

Once we were all settled in and we made sure we had all our stuff, we were on the road for a 9 hour drive!


It wasn't too bad of a drive, and before long we were at our usual Chick Fil A breakfast stop in SC!

I had a chicken biscuit- yum yum yum!

We don't stop very often, so whenever we have to stop for gas, we better use that opportunity for taking a restroom break! Except for me, I hate using public restrooms (even at Disney) so unless I absolutely have to go, I can hold it- lol!


Before long we had made it through SC and Georgia and saw this!


And then this




And this!





Finally at around 3:30- we made it to our new home for the next week!






While my mom and dad checked in, my brothers and I sat down in the lobby on some very comfy couches and hooked our iTouches up with the free wifi there while we waited.

Mom came over to us and we started walking to our room while Dad went to park the car in the parking lot closest to us.



We decided to wait for my dad so we could all walk in the room together


He didn't take very long and we were walking down the hallway again...


Turns out the CM who checked us in circled the wrong place on the map when showing us our room

Our room was actually, down the rest of that hallway, into the octagon and then turn left (to the building going vertical).

So would we like room 5135? Luckily it was on the first floor so we had a patio...

If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?

Joining in! Not sure if you remember, but we posted on each others TRs a couple of years ago! I can't believe you're a junior in high school! (So is my youngest daughter!)

Can't wait to hear about your trip. Y'all are so lucky that you can wake up in the morning, and be at Disney before 4 that afternoon!

Hope you have some room pictures. We've never stayed at the Contemporary before.

Of course I remember! I know, half way done with high school- crazy!

It's really awesome that we could get there by four, we had plenty of park time! Don't worry, I've got tons of room pictures, the Contemporary rooms seem a little more spacious than other deluxe resorts we've stayed at, and they have the comfiest beds in the world

It's Sad How I Know That

July 5th, 2012

After the nine hour car ride, the check in, the waiting, and the walk to the room, we were finally standing outside the door to our new home for the next week!


We put the key card in and walked on in!

The desk/dresser/mirror area

When we stayed here back in 2008 they had computers on the desk. Now they've got free wifi so that was really nice!

The most comfy beds in Disney


The TV area and the couch that turns into a bed (where I slept, except on the last night)


Close up of the couch design


The entrance hallway/closets/fridge-kitchen area


The bathroom (the toilet room to the right)


We had scored first floor rooms! Because if you're on the second or third floor you don't get a balcony. You have doors that open up, and then like two inches and then railing, not cool.


Our view


The river ran by right behind the grass and boats would come by all the time





The new camera wasn't working so I set up shop to fix it up, since I am a technological genius


Turns out, whenever the memory is full it won't let you take any pictures but it won't even give you a warning that says the memory is full! So I uploaded all the pictures of my brother's baseball tournament to my laptop and deleted them off the camera so we would be ready to go for tonight!

We took a break in the room, the bellhop brought the bags to the room, so we were unpacking and then relaxing. My dad needed a good rest after driving all day.

At 6 o'clock we were ready to hit MK!


We walked back down the hallway


Into the main Contemporary building


And there was a monorail there waiting for us!





TIP/TRICK #1
It's actually quicker to walk to MK instead of taking the monorail, as we later found out, because the monorail goes all around the track and has to stop at three other stops before arriving at MK. If you wanna save time, try the pretty decent walk


We're here!





Continued in next post!

-continued-

My favorite Princess' castle!





First stop- to get Fast Passes (which from here on out I will refer to as FPs) for Space Mountain!





Since we're here, why not ride a family favorite- the TTA!




It really is the best place to people watch, and I do love people watching lol

After our trip around Tomorrowland, we made our way over to another favorite- Pirates!





By now we were all pretty hungry, Joe wanted nothing more but to eat at Columbia Harbour House. Since it was pretty close by, we agreed on eating there.


While we were waiting to be told which little queue to go into to order our food, the lady directing people noticed my shirt. She asked me if I had gone to the One Direction concert and I told her I had and she goes "It's sad how I know that right" referring to knowing about them being on tour/their concerts. She gave us a menu and directed us to a CM to take our order.
Thank goodness for these menus because without my glasses I can't read the overhead menu signs.


Up Next: Fish and Chips!
