As I sit here with a 2.5 hour layover in Pensacola, Florida aka lower Alabama, it occurs me to me that there's no time like the present to officially move this to a post trip report. I put you to sleep with my uber long pre-trip report, kept you engaged with my mini live report, and now it's time for the whole enchilada, the big ragu....drumroll.....the post trip report. I will try like a mutha to keep on task but can't promise 100% that there won't be random pics thrown in as DH uploads them from the camera. Can't push a man/hubby/SO, ya know?

I'm thinking the best place to begin is with our plans. Who wants to guess how many ADRs we kept? Did we stick to our park plans? Did we swim at AoA or hit MK for EMH on arrival night? Did I get my coveted party pics? There will be a prize at the end. Ooooo....a prize!

Saturday 10/13:
- arrive WDW, stay AoA one night, swim, food court at AoA which is supposed to be varied and tasty. So excited! Now that we're arriving at MCO at 4:30, we'll have time to swim. I really want to hear the underwater sound effects. Such a cool feature. We may do MK's EMH that night as they'll be open until midnight but we'll see how everyone is feeling.

Sunday 10/14:
- breakfast at AoA
- check out and into THV
- MK, CS
- 50s PT all 11 of us
- MGM for EMH

Monday 10/15:
- sleep in
- Epcot, F&W- Jen cubed
- break
- MK for EMH with fireworks

Tuesday 10/16:
- Typhoon Lagoon, CS
- Turf Club for dinner post water parks
- DTD for a little shopping

Wed 10/17:
- AK rope drop, CS
- break
- WS EMH, Rose and Crown or F&W, Illuminations

Thurs 10/18:
- sleep in
- DIS meet at 1:30? I'm going to try
- BBQ tri tip before MK, all 11 of us
- MK MNSSHP, fireworks and parade along with trick or treating. I'd also like to get the magic ghost and carriage Photopass shots.

Friday 10/19:
- check out and into AKV
- Blizzard Beach, CS
- Saana and AKV activities that evening

Saturday 10/20:
- MGM EMH
- pool break, grill by pool for lunch
- AK. It's open until 8:00 tonight. EE in the dark is a total must do

Sunday 10/21:
- Epcot FW
- break
- Boma before EMH
- MGM EMH, Fantasmic!

Monday 10/22:
- breakfast with Cynthia
- Brunch in the villa for the others
- MK
- Kona Cafe
- MK EMH, MSEP

Tuesday 10/23:
- YES at AK, CS
- break
- 6:00 pm Mixology seminar with Cherry Heering and Xante and I haven't tried either.
- Epcot to eat around the World or Via Napoli

Wed 10/24:
- pack
- cry
- check out
- Boma for a late breakfast or DTD for an early lunch depending on if United messes with our flights again.
-United home.

As we left home for our 7:15 am flight from SLC to Vegas to MCO we were all pumped. As previous photos show, we aren't all morning people Page 8 has some pics. I won't bore you with reposting them. Who needs to see a half eaten Egg McMuffin twice anyway? Here are a few more from the flight.

Mmmm, delicious on flight goodies:



Joshua watching Monsters Inc, getting in that Disney mood and for his MNSSHP costume:



On the Orlando airline metro:



And finally the image we ALL yearn to see, well those of us who drive anyway. We were line #6:



I swear to you DH turned and said to me, I thought we were going to Saratoga Springs? Has that man heard nothing I've said over the past 6 months? I said, let me spell this out for you o n e....m o r e....t i m e...He likes it when I talk super slow.

Him: so what's the plan?
Me: we're staying at AoA for a night, then SSR, then AKV.
Him: what the hell is AoA?
Me: A r t...o f.....A n i m a t i o n.
Him: oh yeah, that new place.
Me: yes, the new place
Him: why are we only staying there one night?
Me: it's not DVC and I just want to check it out
Him: (suspicious look) um ok

Seriously!

And finally, what we'd all been waiting for......a waters parks bus? Okay, it'll do.



And of course the best tv around, the ME tv.



More pics to come....I've got a plane to catch!

BEYOND priceless.

So I found this late this afternoon - I have no clue how I missed it but glad I'm here now - I'm on page six but sneaked a peek to the last page. Couldn't resist.

Loving every minute of it. It's totally made my day go from crappy to wonderful.

You're getting flowers because the dam@ DIS keeps moving my smilies!

So true Ellen.

Such a different experience. Since I'm only only page six or seven I have no idea if you got it in. I'm hoping.

All of AK has such a mystical, magical feeling at night.

That's okay with Ativan. Some people write buzzy DIS posts and they can't even blame drugs.

My DH does not listen properly; but at least he knows better than ask questions like this! (He's been twacked too many times in the past...)

Fran and I often have moments like this, but she usually has an ideaa of where we are staying, but sometimes, she forgets which trip we're on since I usually have two in the works at any given time.

However, she STILL keeps asking me when the cruise leaves! We're down to 30 days and our FE is closed. She still doesn't realize we leave a few days after Thanksgiving.

Cant wait to hear what you decide to do. I'm guessing from your early trip exhaustion level, y'all choose MK EMH!

I wish I was buzzy posting right now. Today was the first day home. It was like a punch to the gut. Work, snow, and a dirty house; when can I go back to my happy place?

AK is my second favorite park right behind MK. I will get into this in greater detail but I love AK.

It's election time. My blocked list isn't nearly what it used to be since the implementation of the no politics here on the DIS. I need a good stalking.

30 days? That's fabulous. What are you putting on your FE? I havent been on a DC yet but those FE look fun.

You do plan a lot. Maybe I do too? Should I give Michael the benefit of the doubt?


Nope. he simply doesn't listen.

We're pretty much going off of your dates. Jenna's kids get out the first week but then they always have a snow day or two to make up. We can leave as early as June 9 but have to be back by June 21 as Gab and Joshua have camp that should start around the 23rd according to history of session dates. Tell Big D thats whats up. We've almost got dates ladies.

Rentry BLOWS! I don't want to be a downer but today has been a stellar piece of crap. On a fun note, Michael is getting an award tonight for the county. Super happy I get to squeeze into a dress 6 lb heavier than before this vacation.
