Chapter 1: Here We Go!


IT'S DEPARTURE DAY BABY!
We woke up bright & early, well I did. I basically had to drag Ryan out of the bed, I mean C'MON! WE WERE GOING TO DISNEY TODAY!
We loaded up the car & headed to my dad's house!
We got there around 4AM & moved all our stuff to my dad's truck.
My car was staying there so we didn't have to pay terrible airport parking fees!

We got the airport around 4:30, & checked our bags at the curb.
Since we used the Magical Express we wouldn't see our luggage until we got to the room! See you in Disney, bags!

At this point I got incredibly emotional, this was the first ever Disney trip I would be going without any of my family, especially my dad.
Saying goodbye to him was really hard. I hugged him for about 10 minutes & just cried, (ugh, emotional me)
I remember him looking at Ryan & he said, "Now you better take care of my little girl."
Which of course brought more tears! UGH!

We walked through the doors & I waved to my dad until I couldn't see him anymore.
More tears were shed.
Then I got myself together & remembered,
"I WAS GOING TO DISNEY!"

We made it through security with no problems & were headed to our gate!
These bad boys had been printed out the night before, so we were ready!



We took some pictures while we were waiting to board!



Here's our wonderful little plane!



Now, here is where you are going to have to take my word..
While we were patiently waiting to board our plane, we just happened to glance over.
Who do we see?
Eddie Griffin!
If you don't know who that is, he played in Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo, & he's a comedian.
I don't know WHY I didn't take a picture!
He knew we were looking at him too, he just kept laughing to himself.
We're too obvious.

FINALLY, we boarded our plane! We were off to Detroit.



This was Ryan's first airplane trip EVER!
He was a little scared.
I'm terrified of planes, so I'm sure I made him more nervous.

We took off at exactly 6:45! Right on time!
Somehow we landed in Detroit early though!

We walked into Detroit airport & it was HUGE!
A little overwhelming....

We managed to find our gate after we walked through this really long, cool underground tunnel!
I was fascinated by it, we were actually UNDER the runways!


We boarded our plane & were off again in no time!
HERE WE COME ORLANDO!

Ryan fell asleep on this flight, it was really adorable,






We landed in Orlando at 12:30! Earlier than expected!
I basically sprinted off the plane, shaking with so much happiness.
I'm sure I looked ridiculous, BUT WHO CARES!
I'M ALMOST HOME!

We went to the "fakorail" (fake monorail) & boy, was I excited!
Ryan was still a little sleepy..



Where we off to next?


THE MAGICAL EXPRESS!


Next!

That tunnel in the Detroit airport is so much fun! I love how the music matches the colors. It's like therapy.

Chapter 2: "WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?"

The beautiful Florida air welcomed us as we stepped outside to see,
THE MAGICAL EXPRESS!

Hello, my love!


This was actually my first time riding it, so I was jumping with excitement!
Our driver was waiting outside of the door, & looked at me & said,
"Little excited there dear?"
I replied with, "OF COURSE! WE'RE GOING TO DISNEY!"
Silly driver, don't you know?!

We took our seats & waited to leave the airport,


Pretty soon we were on the road!
Coronado was the first stop, HECK YEAH!

The movie started & I couldn't even move my eyes away from the screen,
& the magic playing right before me.
I almost missed this beautiful baby!


I couldn't get a better picture, but at least I got the side,

In no time at all, we pulled up to Coronado Springs!
Our luggage would be brought to our room once it got to Orlando,
it had a whole different flight than us from Detroit!
Hopefully it would make it there okay!

We went into the lobby, & I was so overwhelmed that I didn't take one SINGLE picture.
I'm so sorry.
I know.
I'm terrible.
Please forgive me?

Okay, thanks.

We had checked in online 3 days before, so we were ready for our room keys!
I talked to the cast member at the counter, who was very helpful!
I wish I could remember her name!

Soon enough, we got our room keys & were headed to the Cabanas! Building 9A!
At this point, I just took off running.
Not sure why, but I had this sudden burst of energy that I just HAD to run.
I was in Disney, FINALLY!
Ryan on the other hand took a more leisurely stroll..

We found our room, which was on the first floor, facing the parking lot!


We walked into our home for the next 6 days,
(BTW! I did record some videos, on my brand spankin' new camera, so once I edit those, they will be added!)

As soon as we walked in, I turned on our tv to say hello to the one & only,
STACEY!
Would you expect me to do anything else?
The answer to that is,
NO.

I recorded a walk through of our new home, & took some pictures.



Wait a second...
What's that in the corner?


SOUND THE ALARMS!
I hate to say this...
but we've got a sleeper on our hands!

Of course, that changed immediately.
Excuse me Ryan, but we don't sleep in Disney.
Get used to it!

Right after I woke Ryan up, there was a knock on our door.
Huh?
I opened the door &....
OH HEY LUGGAGE!
It made it there safely & quickly.

I quickly claimed my spot & emptied out my suitcase.

Then, it was time to go! We were wasting valuable park time here people!

We left our room & walked straight to the bus stop, conveniently located right next to the building next to us! WOO!

As we walked up to the bus stop, our bus was here!
Where were we going?
What would Ryan think of his first Disney bus ride?
You'll find out soon!

Next!
