Back at the hotel after dinner, I decide to check the status of our flights, just to be sure the nasty weather plaguing southern Florida wasn't affecting our plans to visit Orlando. And wouldn't you know it, there was a note on the Jetblue website saying they were waiving change fees for flights due to the storm. Posted just 20 minutes AFTER we left home that morning. So I get on the phone to Jetblue, but as I expected, there were no early options still available (the 7 am plane was full). The advise us to go to the airport as scheduled and "hope for the best" as they don't yet know how the storm was going to move.

Let's just say, the boys were not impressed. Frankly, neither was I!! Damn you, Isaac!

That night, we were all restless. We just wanted to get there. By 11 o'clock, we gave up trying to sleep and headed across the highway to Tim Hortons for coffee. And we got to meet this fine lady:



No, that's not her chocolate showing. Honest.

A midnight stroll was just what the doctor ordered. Eventually, it was off to dreamland and morning arrived. We grabbed a big buffet breakfast at Ponderosa and made emergency hotel plans with the Candlewood Suites in the event that we were "stranded" for another day or so. We then devised "Plan B" in the event our flight didn't take off (Plan B, in case you are wondering, was us taking in the New York State Fair which just happened to be in town....no, it wasn't an Orlando theme park, but hey....it was better than sitting around and fretting about Isaac). Then we packed, grabbed a snack at Wendy's, and took the shuttle to the airport.

And that was when things got REALLY interesting.

To make a long story short, apparently Jake and I had some sort of bomb-building chemical on our shoes, and the TSA were all over us like a wet blanket. We had every scan, body search, luggage search, and interrogation they offered (or so it seemed). Scared the bejeezus out of my poor boy. They literally stepped between us when he went to hand me his passport (as they led him away for the search, with Steve hot on his heels for support) and screamed that we were not to touch each other in the event that we cross contaminated.

Eventually, we were freed. But not before they searched our checked luggage too. Holy moly. Jake's heart started beating again, and we decided it was something we would laugh about it later. TSA speculated that the chemical they found on our footwear may have been picked up on our late-night stroll to Timmies, as its often found in fertilizer (and we walked through the ditch of the Candlewood before crossing the highway.....DOH!).. But who knew. What a lesson in airport security for us all.

We finally make it to our gate.



Steve disappears and we wonder where the heck he went. He emerges a short time later with a round of drinks.....the only one of the three of us who wasn't searched, he felt kind of bad for the way we had been treated :



So yummy. And brewed in upstate NY.

A toast for the TSA "survivors"!



Happily, we boarded without delay, Hurricane Isaac continued to move away from the central Florida area, and we were relieved to not be subject to the travel delay we feared. That said, in the hub-bub of the whole process, I totally didn't get a chance to take my gravol before boarding. So you can guess what happened. Somewhere over Pennsylvania, the air sickness kicked in, and I threw up all the way to Florida. To the poor woman stuck sitting next to me on the plane, I offer my humblest apologies .

Thank goodness for barf bags .

So happy to be following your report again. I've never seen lines like that at the border in 1000 Islands! That would have scared me to death being searched. I get my back up when they pat me down at the airport. I'll walk through those body scanners any day but keep your hands off " the girls" in public please. Ya ya I know it's for our safety but it just feels dirty.........

Your hair is so long now - love it. So are you booked for Jan 2013? We are booked for march 2013. I think we may need an Ottawa Dismeet this winter. I love talking WDW with people.

Thanks again for the trip report and can't wait to hear about it all!

Hello, hello! Thanks for joining me on trip report #2!

We, too, were shocked at the border line . Quite obviously there were a whole pile of Canucks headed to Watertown to do their back to school shopping. Or that was our guess, anyway.

Thanks for the kind comment on my hair. LOL, it was a bone of contention in all that humidity. I will admit to suffering from Monica hair (for those of you who saw the episode of Friends were her long locks succumbed to the humidity) for a good deal of our vacation. Hair bands were my best friend . I am not a pony tail girl so my options were somewhat limited. Please no laughing and pointing when you see my tresses frizzing out despite my best efforts .

Our next trip is for late December, actually. Christmas week (December 23-30th, onsite at SeaWorld with Aquatica, Gatorland, an airboat tour, a little Disney, and the Orlando Magic/Toronto Raptors game thrown in for good measure...oh yeah, and shopping....can't forget that ). Where are you staying in March? I would love to go March Break some time, but I can't see it happening now that my son is working at the Y. Drat!

An Ottawa Dismeet sound like fun! We often get up that way for basketball. I vote you to be the official organizer of the event!

So....its now Sunday evening. We de-plane shortly before 7 pm. The boys grabbed the luggage (God love 'em) while I dragged my sorry butt (and my trusty barf bag) through the airport.

The Alamo line up was mercifully empty. We had our rental car and were on our way in no time.

It was hot and humid and rainy, which certainly didn't immediately help to alleviate my head and stomach issues. A brain tumor survivor, I tend to get headachy and nauseated whenever there's a change in air pressure (one of those pesky long-term effects......normally I can live with it but you add it to the airsickness and it just wasn't a good combination).

The drive to our acccomodations was quiet and uneventful. No traffic or other issues to worry about. The boys were fretting over me which I thought was sweet. I knew they were starving but they just wanted to get me to our room so I could stretch out and lay down.

Checking in was super fast thanks to a wonderfully sweet young man at the Registration desk at Westgate Lakes Resort and Spa. He was very compassionate when he heard I had been motion sick on the plane, and had us off to our room in now time (thank you, Matthew Singh ... you have no idea how much I appreciated it!!). Virtually all of our room requests were honoured. We were in a FABULOUS location and first impressions of the resort itself were excellent. It was big, beautiful and certainly seemed to offer every amenity we could have hoped for. We couldn't wait to do more exploring the next day when we were rested and feeling better.

The boys unloaded the luggage, toured our villa, then headed to Cici's for pizza (bless 'em, they brought me back a pizza to snack on before I went to bed....and by then, I actually felt a bit like eating and had started to lose the headache, so it was perfect timing ). We had a two bedroom, two bathroom unit and we had soooo much space. I loved it. Some pics of the room:

The kitchen:







Master bedroom (and yes, that's a 4-person spa tub .... plus we had a huge stand up shower, double vanity, and separate toilet area:





Second bedroom:



Second bath:



Dining area:



Living room:





And full laundry facilities:



The room itself slept 8.

Though it took us until morning's light to really check it out, we had a beautiful screened-in balcony with access from both the living room and master bedroom:



We had a beautiful view from the balcony of Turkey Lake. We could watch the Disney fireworks in the evening, and the gators patrol the marina area in the morning.









Sorry about the grainy appearance of some of the photos. The screen makes a clear shot difficult!!!

Monday, August 27th....our first full day in Orlando!

Isaac's influence created a very rainy, rainy morning. No matter....we had inside stuff planned for today anyway. How's that for perfect timing?





My motion sickness had disappeared so we were off to the Florida Mall. We had a family photo session scheduled at Studio One to One, thanks a a great Groupon deal I had purchased months prior. We hadn't had our family pics done since our Disney trip in 2009 so let's just say this was LONG overdue.

We had a ton of fun at this session.....I cannot say enough about our photographer, Terri. She was fantastic . And she also got some great pictures of our family.....34 in total....and I will share with you a few of my favourites. One of them is the first pic in this report. Here are a selection of others:















Best souvenir of our trip. Highly recommend this studio. Walked out with our CD in hand, and our actual prints were printed on an expedited basis at no additional cost and ready for pick up before we flew home.

Welcome, Debbie!!! Glad to have you!

So happy to hear that Isaac's timing didn't affect your trip.

The room WAS fantastic!!! Better than we hoped!!! (you see the pics on a website but never really know if that's exactly what you will get ).

Following the conclusion of our portrait session, we decided it was a great time to do some shopping. We could hear the rain and thunder outside so we were in no hurry to leave the cool, dry mall. We headed to M&M World:







House of Hoops (yes, AGAIN...you might remember we were also at a HoH at the Carousel Mall in Syracuse ):



and basically just did "the tour". Shortly after noon, the rain let up considerably so we ventured out for some lunch. Breakfast had been reasonably light (at Dunkin Donuts....Jake's pick) so we opted for a heartier mid-day meal at Steak & Shake. We had heard about their milkshakes and had to try them for ourselves! I will be wishing soon that I had bought some new pants while at the Florida Mall .... specifically, something with an elastic waste...... .

For some reason, we had thought it was a typical fast food place. I didn't realize we would be sat at a table and served. It was a nice surprise.

Definitely added this one to our must-do-again lunches on our next trip.

By the time we reached Steak & Shake, the rain had pretty much stopped . Knowing so many of our Disboard friends were enjoying Disney parks (with the free dining promotion well underway), we were happy to see that at least part of their weather-soaked day might be salvaged.

So Steak & Shake was a real hit with the boys.



The milkshakes were TO DIE FOR. And huge. Ridiculously, shockingly huge. And apparently, according to our server, the take-out versions of these bad boys are even bigger.



There was no way in heck I was ever going to see the bottom of my glass, but I gave it my best shot. It was a cookie dough shake, after all, and how many places can you actually get that flavour?

Its worth noting, for milkshake enthusiasts, that these behemoths are half price every day from 2-4 pm and 2-4 am.

After lunch, the weather was still kind of questionable, so we rolled our bloated bellies to the Premium Outlets on the north end of International Drive. Over the course of the afternoon, we picked up a host of ridiculously cheap clothing and some souvenirs for the family.



Afterward, we stopped for supplies at Walmart (bottled water, beer, and snacks), enjoyed a leisurely dinner at Olive Garden (hubby's favourite) and then headed back to enjoy a surprisingly beautiful evening at the resort. Jake's shopping urges had been sufficiently satisfied () and we were ready to RELAX.

Located right outside our building's front entrance was the Citrus Breeze pool and activity center.



In addition to the large pool, there was a hot tub and a kid's pool with a water mushroom.





In total, there were 7 pools, 7 hot tubs, and 4 kids pools located at various locations throughout the resort.

The activity center had full-time staff organizing various crafts, games and activities at any given time. From build-a-bear to tye-dye t-shirts and decorating your own cowboy hat to bicycle rentals, a book and board game lending library, sports equipment rentals and organized games such as family bingo, there was no shortage of fun stuff to do.





But tonight, we just wanted to GET WET. Last one in is a rotten egg!

Tuesday, August 28th........

What is this kid doing sleeping?!?!? Doesn't he know that the sun is out and we have a big day planned?



He was enticed awake with the prospect of a buffet breakfast at Sizzler.





Sufficiently satisfied, we piled back in the car and within minutes were at our destination...........







First off, we checked in at Guest Services and were escorted to our private cabana.



We loved, loved, LOVED the cabana. It was great to have our own private space, our own fridge, a full stock of Dasani water, towels, etc. We were in the Uluwatu Cabana area and had cabana #4. That would be the one on the right. It was located just beside the wave pool....a great location within the park!







It was hot, it was sunny, and we were totally pumped for a full day of waterpark fun!!

Thank you . We were actually ready for the rain....had enough ponchos and umbrellas in the carryons to keep an army dry . It was good timing on Mother Nature's part that our rainy day was the one earmarked for shopping. The rest of the week was absolutely marvellous weather-wise.
