Update 2

Welcome again. Now let’s get this started.

A little backstory. We are a married gay couple in NY. I have loved Disney all my life and Vinny went for his first trip in 2007 with his sisters’ family and friend and me. He thought it was fun and we went back a couple of times. Then in 2010 I suggested getting a DVC. We ended up buying into Saratoga Springs and have not regretted it since.

Flash forward to October 8th.
3:30 am the alarm goes off. I turn it off. I fell back to sleep. Now Vinny is very good at getting up without an alarm so I was not worried. The car was coming at 4:30 and I just needed to shave and shower. Well next time I look my clock says 4:08. (Insert words I cannot say here). I wake Vinny up and I go and shave. After shaving I jump into the shower. It is now 4:15 and I said the car will be here any minute. 2 minutes later the phone rang and it was the driver. I am still in the shower and hurry it up. 10 minutes later we walked down to the car. Not too bad I thought but I was very rushed and I hate that.
The driver was a nice Russian guy but had a thick accent. He asked me which way to go(I thought this was his job) and so I told him. We got there quickly being it was so early and also Columbus Day paid him and went to check in.

We did curbside check in being it is so much easier. It costs $2 each plus tip but that is okay. The line to show the boarding pass wasn’t bad. Then security was easy. Shoes off then body scan. Check. Good to go.
We did have breakfast at Dunkin’ Donuts. I had a crumb muffin and Iced Latte. Vinny had a jelly donut and coffee. Then we headed over to the gate.

Here is our plane as we waited.


Our flight was for 7 and we boarded on time and left on time. Here is a pic of the live map as we waited as people boarded.


Now let us go and fly through the sky.


Jetblue has the best Bloody Mary’s. It was 8:20am but I hate flying.


The clouds were so pretty this day.


Getting closer.


Then we were close. LOL


More clouds.


A 30 second clip of us flying. More clouds.


Looking out as we started to come in for a landing.




We have landed.


We did land on time. Now come on lets go we have WDW waiting for us. We get out quickly (row 2 seats) and go to the monorail.


Then we were on the monorail.


Me on the monorail.


We went down to the Magical Express and got in line for SSR. Were sent immediately to the bus and found a seat. They have seat belts now on them. Good idea.

Waiting for the video to start.


A very quick clip of the video they play on the bus.


Not very good but here is the arch.


Then we arrived at SSR. We were the first drop off on the bus.

I think I will stop here.

Up next,

Check in and where do we go?

Sorry for quality of pics above as they were all cell phone pics.

Don't you hate when you fall back asleep ater the alarm rings? That's normally not a problem for me when I go to Disney.

I love the little flight maps on Jet Blue. Maybe they will fly out of Philly one day and I can try them. I am not driving an extra 2 hours to fly Jet Blue though. The gas cost alone doesn't it make it worth the drive.

Lucky you I had a wait at ME and I was on a new bus but never noticed seat belts. Then again I didn't look.

I'm here!!! Looking forward to hearing about all the adventures.

I'm guessing one thing would be Vinny stating he couldn't wait to come back?

Not only do I not sleep well - but if we were going to Disney that morning, I would be jumping out of bed 10 mins for the driver to wait, not bad at all but I would have felt rushed all day and felt like I might have forgotten something. Glad you made it!!!


Waiting for more.

I do but it happens often with me.
That is why I fly them. It makes me feel better seeing the progress of the trip.
The new bus is nice. I like the stairs going in and the flat screen tv's.

Hello. I was waving at you too. I did say to Vinny as we passed states who lived where. Your name came up.

Hello. I think of them as breakfast drinks so I figured it was okay.

I usually do but I only got 2 hours of sleep so I was sleepy.
I do not worry about forgetting things. Most things we leave there in the owner lockers and the rest we can buy.

Good thing you guys made it to the airport on time!!! I always like to leave on the earliest flight too, but I do question that judgement when the alarm actually goes off!

Love JetBlue and the maps!!

Do you recognize me yet? The flight sounds nice, glad you made it on time! Sounds like it was nice and quick after you arrived at MCO!

I'm living vicariously through you, there needs to be a lot of pictures! No pressure
