My Oh My What a Wonderful Day!

First off we just finished watching wreck it ralph for the first time and it was soo good!! I recommend that all of you guys watch it sometime if you havent already! It is seriously adorable


I had my coffee cake for breakfast! I love that stuff

And I had confetti cake! But we have no picture! Sorry to disappoint you!

We finished up packing and then we drop our dog off at our Grandma's house!

We left at approximately 12:00! Then we were off to the airport!

But first, we had to make a stop for a snack! The airport is a hour away from our house so we stopped at Sheetz about halfway. My parents got hotdogs but we don't have a picture! Belle and I shared a cup a fries!

And I had the love of my life...MAC AND CHEESE BITES! If you are a mac and cheese fan, this a must have! Its pretty much fried macaroni and it is so good!

Then we dropped our car off at Charlie Brown! Then we rode on a little baby bus to the airport! There were these obnoxious girls behind us that said they were going to Riverside! We thought it was Port Orleans Riverside! But, they were talking about a beach! We were in the Disney zone already! The bus drop us off at the Southwest check-in and we checked in our luggage and we proceeded to security which was incredibly fast and everyone could tell we were going to Disney! Our dad got patted down and we thought it was funny Then we rode a little train type thing to our gate!

Stay tuned for our next update!

~Continued in Next Update~

We can fly we can fly we can flyy!!!

We got off the little train type thing and saw that our gate was A1! How fantastic is that, we had the very first gate!! Woohooo But we were all STARVING so before we went to our gate we went to find us some lunch And sorry we were all so happy so none of us took any pictures of our lunch but dont worry we took pictures of our Disney food which is way more important but anyways we all split up to get us some lunch and then decided to meet up at a table! Me, Rachel, and my dad went to subway to eat healthy! Rachel and my dad shared a foot long italian BMT and i got a six inch club! And we got a bottle of coke for our drink! My dad was mad because they charged my six inch as a foot long but he eventually got over it Belle got a chicken nugget happy meal from mcdonalds and my mom got a burrito and chips and salsa from some mexican place(I have no idea what it was called) Overall our food was alright but we were just anxious to go and have some Disney food!!

Then we sat at our gate for like 2 hours because our plane didnt leave till 4:30! We all just did things on our electronics to get us through! Then it was finally time to board the plane!! We got seats in the middle of the plane and the funniest thing happened as we were boarding the plane! I was carrying my teddy bear teddy who goes everywhere with me and he always makes me feel better and we were walking down the aisle of the plane looking for seats and near the front of the plane were these group of college guys and one of them said to one of the guys, "Hey do you have a crush?" and he said "On who?" and that guy said "On the girl with the teddy bear!" HAHA that was me! I didnt know whether to be embarassed or laugh it off but I was going to Disney so I just laughed it off! Here is a picture with me and the famous teddy!

Isnt he precious! I even dressed him up in vacation clothes! And yes I am 18 years old and Im not ashamed of my teddy bear!Thats my older sister for you! She has grown up so much

Anyways we then took off and while on the plane we took a bunch of pictures because we were bored!

Yes that is gum in Belles and Rachels teeth!

And we colored on the plane! Belle finished all of her pictures within like 10 mins! Rachel finished one and I didnt even finish one!

I am still confused on why she didn't color the face in first?!

During our photoshoot we listened to my Disney playlist on my iphone which was getting us all excited!

This is my "Frump" face! If you have read any of Kristen (Disneyfreak616) or Jess (Disneyfreak508) trip reports then you will understand the whole Frump thing and I love their trip reports so I love taking frumpy pictures!

Finally we landed at the Orlando Airport and the plane ride was about 2 hours! We landed and you could see the sunset it was so pretty! Once we got off the plane we practically ran to the magical express but first we got to ride the fake monorail which obviously isnt anything like the real monorail but when you havent been to Disney for 2 years you get pretty excited about this!

We went to the bathroom real quick and then walked right onto a magical express bus and within a few minutes we were on our way to Disney World!!

And at last I see the light

The magical express bus was magical as always! Our driver Randall was hilarious and cracking jokes and that movie always makes me so happy! It justs gets me even more excited which I didnt even know was possible Get this, we finally arrived in Walt Disney World and we are just driving through and stop at a red light and guess what happens...fireworks starts going off! And they were from Fantasmic! I am a big lover of Fantasmic and youll find more about that later in the trip and I was seriously so happy! What could be better than sitting on a magical express bus and seeing fireworks from Fantasmic going off? I bet you all have no answer for that because there is nothing better

Then the bus stopped at the Yacht Club and then the Beach Club and then the Boardwalk and then the last stop was where we got off, can you guess where we were staying?

If you guessed Port Orleans Riverside then you were correct

This is like my family's second home no joke we love this place! We basically ran off the bus to check-in and we walked right up and we had a girl named Erica help us who was in the College Program and she said she loves the College Program! I had to ask because I am definitely applying for it! I really really really want to do it! I think I am going to apply for the spring 2014 and if anyone else is thinking about applying then we should totally talk because I love to talk to people about it!

Anyways back to the trip, our room was ready and we got building 14 which was the closest to the buses and the main building so we were really excited about that! The only upsetting thing was they ran out of birthday buttons which I was really looking forward to because I couldnt wait to wear it but Erica apologized and got me a "Im Celebrating" button and put 18th birthday on it! Thank you Erica!

After that, we went to pick up our mugs because we were on the Dining Plan and then went to our room and dropped off our carryons! Sorry but we were in such a hurry to go to Downtown Disney to eat dinner because we were starving that we didnt even take any pictures of our room! I know we are super sorry but we will show you some later!

We then saw that a boat just pulled in for Downtown Disney and we sprinted right over to the dock to realize that our boat driver was a really old man who looked like he should of been in bed sleeping instead of taking us to Downtown Disney, we even tried to be friendly with him and he wasnt even friendly back! Sorry if that sounded rude at all but I usually love the old men working at Disney but this one just wasnt very friendly.

After the longest and coldest boat ride ever we arrived in Downtown Disney! And it was PACKED! It was a Saturday night though so we expected it. Then we headed to our destination for dinner...Wolfgang Puck

I love that place! There was a line sadly and we had stupid tour group people in front of us and it took like 15 mins but it seemed longer because we were all starving! Finally though we put our orders in and we found a table! For my dessert I got a cookie which I got so I could eat because I couldnt wait any longer for food and I seriously devoured that think and didnt get any picture of it but it was one of those cookies that was a sugar cookie with sprinkles on it and those are always delicious so it was good!

Then our food finally came! I got a chicken caesar salad which was good but I was eating so fast that I dont really remember it!

My dad and I had the bacon wrapped meatloaf which we both really liked! As our dad says "meatloaf is blah but meatloaf wrapped in bacon is ahh!"

Our mom and Belle got a pepperoni pizza to share. They said it was good but Belle didnt enjoy all the tomatoes on it.

Then it was time for Desserts!

I got the creme brulee and it was AMAZING! I have heard about this for two years and it was so worth the wait!

My dad and belle and my mom all wanted frozen yogurt but the only flavor they had was vanilla so our so kind helper Omar made my dad a chocolately one with chocolate syrup on it and my mom and belle decided on a chocolate chip cookie but since they shared a meal they were only suppose to get one but Omar surprised us and brought out two! How kind of him spreading some Disney magic And sadly we didnt get any pictures of these because everyone devoured their desserts! Overall it was a good, quick meal we needed!

To be continued in next update

Heigh ho heigh ho its off to World of Disney we go!

So we left Wolfgang Pucks and decided to browse through a few stores. At this point Belle has hit her wall (as we like to call it) and was extremely grouchy so we knew we werent going to stay long. First we browsed through Tren-D which I love!!! and we just walked right through because we were on a mission, TO GET ME A BIRTHDAY BUTTON!! We were heading to Guest Relations of course! Lucky for me a kind young man got me one and made it so cute like he even drew a mickey balloon on it!

I thanked him and put it right on because I have been waiting to be in Disney for my birthday my whole life so I was going to make this a special trip and wear my button everywhere!
Then we went to Basin and looked at all their cool soaps! They are so sweet I just love the idea of that store! Then next we went to the biggest disney store ever, World of Disney! This one is my favorite! Sadly it was so packed in here that we didnt stay long and didnt even purchase anything but we knew we would be back in a few days! Then my mom was wanting some hot chocolate because it was pretty chilly out so we went to Ghiradelli Lucky for us they were handing out free little chocolate squares and they even gave me two because of my birthday sadly though they were caramel and Im not a huge caramel fan so I so lovingly gave them to Rachel! They were so goodirate:We then went outside and had a mini photoshoot while we waited for my mom

As you can see Belle looks pretty cranky!

Then she tried to attempt to look happy!

We then decided it was too cold to take the boat back to our room so we decided to take the bus! The wait though ended up taking forever, like twenty minutes which is long when you are freezing! I swear the Port Orleans Riverside buses always have the longest lines and the bus takes forever to get there! Finally we got back to our room and we all collapsed! My mom and I ran to the gift shop to grab some donuts for breakfast and then we all showered and watched some good ole Stacey and went right to bed because we had a big day ahead of us!
