So pleased that you had a good trip Rejoyceoverdisney! We are still at POR until Tuesday and the weather was horrid today. At MK any ride that was inside was very busy!! Luckily it was our rest day so we had just popped in to use our Buzz FP with our boys so it didn't affect us at all!

Bad weather did not keep crowds away from MK today! Crowded and spirits high for most - a little rainwas not going to spoil the magic!! MK open until 11pm and as we were leaving for night lots and LOTS Of folks coming in. We saw two marching bands which was unexpected and fun! One group from Texas and one from Alabama. Lots of cheerleaders rushing around in high spirits and wait times were up there. We were still able to do all that we had wanted and our 5 year old granddaughter was chosen to be " The Beast" when we stopped by Tales with Belle - she was thrilled!

Folks who usually visit his time of year are saying it is busier than usual and I can say it is much busier than I recall when we were in WDW in 2012. Still a lot of fun and we have had a wonderful vacation. Now it is time to pack our bags and head home after two glorious weeks at POFQ but I do think I need another vacation to rest from this vacation!!

Asking for prayers that we can get to the airport tomorrow morning. Our flurries that weren't supposed to stick are now a good 3 inches and they say it's supposed to snow until around 1am! We live in the south too so NO snow removal. So nervous the snow is going to take down our vacation!

May your prayers be answered. I leave tomorrow morning too.

I feel TRULY blessed that the weather I experienced was over all perfect. Any showers were brief and not stopping anything. I have to say the 89ish degree day was not my favorite but what it did is make me stop and enjoy the pool. I haven't been in a pool in at least 4 years. So talk about a treat.

Hope your packing up went smooth and whatever you did do on your horrid weather day was still fun. After all it's away from home and it's Disney.

This made me laugh out loud. I love that. Disney World Bracelets! It was fun to watch the kids use their magic bands. They felt like big shots. I know in past years we just scanned their cards for the boys. But to see the littlest of guests using the magic band and seeing the mickey head go green. It was precious.

Have an amazing vacation. Try to slow yourself down enough to actually see the details that Disney puts into so many things. And make sure to check out Tom Sawyer island. As weird as it was to walk the barrel bridge, I can't wait to go back and try it again. I was on it alone, but can't imagine how silly it would have been if others were on it at the same time.
Oh and I Highly recommend the Incredible's dance party. I saw grown men restraining themself and then finally giving in and catching the beat. It's weird how a little music and a dance can make you feel so good and happy.
I'll be curious to see if your boys end up joining in.

Happy packing!!!!

Despite driving 2 1/2 icy hours to get to the airport this morning we made out flights and are currently sitting on the magical express on our way to our resort! Yay! Thankful to God for moving obstacles and getting us here! Now for a week of quality time and making memories with my beloved family!!!

Thanks, RejoyceoverDisney! We have a nice, long stay this time, so we hope to take it slow and easy. We are in MA, too, so we also can't wait for a break from the cold!

Yahoooo! so Glad you got there ok.
Now make Memories! Again Please at some point just stop and give yourself permission to stand or sit in the middle of the park and just look all around. Up and down and everywhere and see the things you would not have had time to see if you didn't give yourself permission to just stop and enjoy.

Gosh! Your welcome! I flew out of Worcester and the flight down was about 3 hours and coming back it was 2 hours and 10 minutes!!! Even in MA you can't get far in that amount of time. I hope you have a really great flight like I did and WAHOOO for the long stay. That gives you plenty of time to just take it slow. It's snowing here this evening. I know I missed the last big one, but really I'm ready to be done with the snow. Oh well hopefully it won't be too much this time.
If I read right you are leaving this week.

Have a blast!

For all of the MA peeps: Here's hoping that Thursday's snow turns into rain or goes out to sea. Looks like the weekend will be good.

Can't wait to try out the Worcester airport!!

Fellow February travelers ... I'm approaching single digits (WAHOO!) and have been sidetracked for the past few weeks with changes at work. Plan to finish packing Friday. I did get online check in finished. I know I need to fax in my room request and print my travel itinerary & copies of my stroller reservation. What else? Really anxious bc I've completely neglected planning/preparing for our trip for the past few weeks & feel as if something will be forgotten...

Monday the 3rd I was at Epcot and the crowds were not bad at all. I didn't see much of a wait anywhere I was. I heard MK was horribly crowded and now I see your other post that AK and HS were too. I'm glad I was at Epcot.

Tuesday I found very hot and crowded at MK. I ended up leaving and going over back to the resort pool about 3pm. Buses were crowded for POR every day. I went back to MK at night and still crowded. I decided since Wednesday was another MK day for me, I would just catch the rides I wanted then.

Wednesday another gorgeous day and the crowd level was very low. Nothing more than 10 minute wait other than the main popular rides.
I really enjoyed my day and LOVED the Incredibles Dance Party. My favorite part is that although I was a fat over 50 year old, no one knew me so I danced anyway.
Found the rain showers interesting. Thought it was funny that people would get out the rain gear and the storms stopped.

Really enjoyed my days away and look forward to scheduling another get away in the future. Not sure how soon, but it's just nice to know that I love Disney so much that there will be another in the nearer than usual future.
Funny how it's taking me more than a dozen trips to really appreciate all that Disney offers. From rushing to relaxing. You really can make it what you want it to be.

Hope to hear your report back in and that there were more good times in your travels. Along with others report it.
I had great weather and feel so blessed as it's still only February.

peace!
Tuesday afternoon/evening I spent at Epcot and crowds were decent, although TT and Soarin had 60+ minute waits posted. TT SR was posted at 40 minutes but I walked right on. Wed I hit three parks, DHS first, Epcot second, and MK to finish the night out. Thursday I did MK for EMH then back to Epcot before leaving for the airport.

The best thing I could have done for the week was rent a car! I loved having the freedom to park hop quickly and easily, and when I went to WWoHP I was able to leave when I was done! which was much earlier than expected. I took the buses my first day to MK and was so glad to not do that again!
