Actually, thank you for sharing that story. While it was definitely difficult, you really were pretty fortunate that the next day you could say that was the *worst* thing to happen from the trip. At least you got onto a whole bunch of rides before that! Looks like you really knocked out a bunch of them. I am looking forward to checking out Snow White next year, we couldn't get DD on it last trip, as it's just too scary. (You should have seen the tears we had to deal with last year when we insisted on a "last ride" in Orlando.)

I'm glad you got your TR all out before you leave for the NEXT trip. Looks like you might luck out and get some soft opening on the new FL, too.

I don't know why in the world I could not keep times or even dates straight in my head the entire weekend!!

I'd attribute it to the fact that not only did you make Early Entry, but you were the first ones there by an hour.

I was pretty surprised by how many other people were there waiting that early too, but yes, you are probably right

Truthfully though, that's a great morning. You really got a lot done there. It probably helped a little bit that it was just the 2 of you too.

We got SO much done in just a few hours! It definitely helped to not have a stroller to push around or toddler demands to give in to, and the fact that we were able to ride everything together instead of switching off.

I was thinking about your trip that weekend. I wondered how the timing worked out on that storm and your travels.

Luckily we made it home just in time. In fact, I didn't include it, but as we were making the drive home my boss called to tell me that since I was scheduled to work the next day and the weather was supposed to get bad overnight, I had to go into the hospital that night. So even though we were home, I still didn't get to sleep a night in my own bed!

You probably could have made it... your luggage might not have been so lucky though.


So, can I take this to mean that you won't be taking advantage of cheap parking rates from Groupon again anytime soon?

Definitely NOT!!

That's actually really creepy. I'm not sure I'd just want to get in a car with somebody like that. And then to be treated that way... awkward...

Apparently they aren't interested in having your business again. They obviously weren't 100% sure they had your business the first time.

The wife could not have been nicer, but the guy was just strange. Because I don't know that he was even really trying to come across as rude, but what he was saying just made the whole car ride totally uncomfortable and awkward.

I'm glad you did. I really wondered how that worked out for you. I wasn't sure if you got in before or after the storm and I wondered what happened with Paxton when you got back and said your parents had some damage.

Thankfully because we were able to get home that night, we took Paxton home early Tuesday morning. Their house flooded the next day. Although my mom did say that had we gotten stuck in Atlanta or anywhere else and couldn't get home, they would have left with Paxton anyway. But I was just so happy we made it in enough time to get my baby boy home with us!

Hey, if that's the worst thing you can say, I'd say it was a great trip!

Definitely!!

Thanks for the Trip Report. I loved seeing Carsland and seeing your take on Disneyland from a more adult perspective.

Have a great time on your upcoming trip and I look forward to seeing what you have to say about that one as well!

Thanks!!

Yep, aside from getting cut short and the panic of our flight being cancelled, it was an absolutely perfect weekend! We really tackled the parks, and it helped that the wait times were not long (and the fact that we didn't have to child swap!).

Yikes on Snow White! Yeah, it was pretty cool in DL. There is a scene from the dwarfs cottage that I don't believe was in the WDW version that I liked!

I sure hope so! I'm hoping we will be able to see Enchanted Storytime with Belle while we are there.

Just finished reading this TR. We are going to be trying Steakhouse 55 for the first time for dinner (ate there several times for breakfast) and I am going to attempt that piece of cake. Although I will have three other people to help me. What a crazy way to end your trip. Thanks again for sharing your trip, now on to read the next TR.

You should have a lot more luck tackling that cake with that many people! Lol we didn't stand a chance especially after a full meal! Thanks for commenting

I realized that I never finished reading this TR, but I've hardly been on the DIS this past month. I am very determined to try to get caught up this weekend.

I so enjoyed all your pictures on DL. I am really zeroing in on Feb 2015 for a trip out there. I hope its not too cold. It's low season for DVC points so fingers crossed.

I never realized that splash was one person to a row. That's different. And BTMMR - what's not to love?

Love all the T's you brought home.

I think I see a link to your October TR so I'm heading over to sub!

Hopefully February brings you nice weather!

Splash was different in a lot of ways, not just the ride vehicle. Some of it was downright creepy!! It definitely made me appreciate "my" Splash Mountain in WDW.
