Thanks for joining! It was stressful. I know I shouldn't have been that stressed but I couldn't help it.

I love traveling SWA! The other time you can change flights without paying the upgrade is if your flight is delayed. A friend was able to get changed to an earlier flight once when hers would have gotten her in several hours later. Of course we had to go back to the airport for her bags but was still better than sitting at the airport for hours!

Can't wait to read more about your trip!
Yes, this winter is horrible! Have fun with your hubby! Minnesota weather seems to follow Denver's weather so lets hope we don't this time! Yes, Southwest definitely seemed to be good about those things. I loved their flight attendants.

Aw im sorry! We could have been a little later. As we know that didn't stop us from being sat other times, haha! I loved the room too!! I think I want to stay at Riverside in December. That or a split stay- Value and Deluxe. Corey isn't sold on that idea though.

Your room is so beautiful. What fun to see all the Disney details. Sounds like Emme liked the room as well.

Your coke secret is safe with me.

Subbing for more!
Glad to have you! i was sooo happy I got on that earlier flight. I was supposed to be working that morning but I skipped it! Oops.

Oh my gosh that is so funny that my trip report caused you to go to the disney store. I didn't get any more vinylmations this trip, just traded for one. However, i did get sucked into pins!

I read your food report & I think I recall a certain strawberry hittin the floor & now a bun bites the dust!! I think i see a pattern here, hehe. Sorry, i couldn't resist. Looking forward to reading more of your report. Take care.

Rob
Hey Rob! That is so funny you remember that strawberry I dropped from my cupcake. I had to think about it before I remembered what you were talking about. You have a great memory! Have a good trip in May!

Great trip report so far
How fun! We never ventured over to POFQ but I have heard amazing things about it. I actually visited that hotel in 2011. It was nice.

I enjoy a good fountain drink too! I prefer Coke to Pepsi, so I won't breathe a word!
At first I didn't like the shirt because it clung but now I like it! It is soft and comfy. Did a lot of your color come off of your shirt? My shirt is missing color where it rubbed on my jeans and armpits, lol.

I am determined to avoid pins. I am telling myself that this Vinylmation thing is just to get my mom an Eeyore - but seriously, who am I kidding??

The trip sounds great so far. Definitely feel your pain on the weather. I live in the Twin Cities and am staring out the window right now at more April snow. Why do we live here again??

Guess that makes the Disney trips that much more special.

Hey!! Thanks for joining! Do you live in a suburb? I live in Eden Prairie. I hate the MN weather, so ready for summer. I really hope we do not get that snowfall tonight. Can't it be over with??

We live in Eagan, so not too far away. I am soooo tired of winter? or is it spring?. I have to jump on DisBoards to live vicariously through all the trip reports from Disney World.

Don't usually post much but saw a fellow Minnesota and a snowy start to the trip, so I decided to comment.

Can't wait to follow along.

Your pictures are making me SO excited! We are heading down on may 17th, and staying in a royal room too! I love the crowns on the bedspread!

Also, your puppy is soooo cute! I have a cocker spaniel, so I love all cocker mixes

Just found this.
Glad you were able to get down there.
I have a charger like that.
The new desks at ME are nice.
I am on the phone now with Pepsi to tell them how you enjoyed the coke. LOL
The room looks fantastic.
Can’t wait for more.

Hi Rachel! I SWEAR I posted this on Saturday, but somehow...apparently I didn't. You know me...there was probably something shiny in the room and I got distracted...

I don't know about you, but I am SICK of this weather. Currently my 5 day forecast is telling me we will alledgedly have high 60s by the weekend. We shall see...

The pictures of your princess room have me reconsidering our Little Mermaid room! SOOOOOO amazing!

I can't wait to hear more about your trip!

I'm finally here! Thanks so much for posting the link! I'm really bad at finding TRs for some reason. Anyways, UGH that travel day must have been so stressful, but thankfully it all worked out okay!

I have to say I totally agree, fountain soda is the BEST.

AHHH YAY ROYAL ROOMS!!!!! I'm staying in a Royal Room on my trip and all these pictures are making me SO EXCITED! (Shh... don't tell anyone though. )

Anyways, YAY! Can't wait for more!

Hi Rachel,
I saw the link in the last report, so I had to bounce over to this one. I'm happy to report that I did in fact book a solo trip leaving this Saturday (EEP) thanks in part to your solo TR.

I just think it's so cool that you booked a trip with a fellow DISer.

I remember reading about the flight issues in the last TR, so really glad it all
worked out.

Plus, even though I'm a guy, that room is AWESOME!!

I had no idea that those rooms existed at Port Orleans! Did some research and saw that it is a fairly new addition.

By the way, I read your earlier trip report prior to seeing this one. Loved your photos and saw that you shared your Instagram name so I decided to follow you on there. You take some fantastic photos!!

I'm sorry I'm so late but I'm here!!! Wow, glad you made it out before the snow! That's what I was dealing with on our November trip, I almost switched flights, but I waited it out and luckily, we made it to Disney! But that's a stressful situation!

Yay a POR Royal room! Didn't you love it? Sooo pretty! I'd love to stay in one again, I love all the details, and just POR in general is pretty perfect!

Finally Together!


I stopped outside and checked out our beautiful view. I loved how it was straight on of that fountain. It made for beautiful pictures.





I headed down to the parking lot and told her exactly where to park and then I took a picture of our building with the sun in the background and sent it to Corey; I am mean!



All of a sudden I heard my name and saw them pulling up!! They arrived about 5:30.

We hugged and were finally happy to be in Disney together!

I helped them take their stuff up to the room, which only took one trip surprisingly, then we got settled in.

Patty poured me a glass of yummy Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc and it was delicious! My first time ever having Sauvignon. I have always thought it was a dry wine but not the Cupcake brand!

Emme was so cute wearing her tinkerbell outfit.





They loved the room so much! We were all blown away.

We realized that we had way too much Vera Bradley! 5 Things and not one repeat design! Pretty good.



While Patty was unpacking I showed Emme the headboard and how if you press the button there was fireworks on the headboard! She loooved that!!! And so did us adults.







Emme was just so hyper!! She was so happy to be in WDW!!



She loved the pillows that came on the bed and was bouncing and jumping all over the place. So cute!

Her Tinkerbell dress was soo sparkly and she was bouncing around so much that all of the glitter got all over the bedspread. Haha, needless to say I kept finding glitter all over the place all weekend! She thought that was funny.





About this time I noticed the hidden mickeys in the light. Gotta have the mickey along with the princesses





When they arrived in the room I let Emme open up the scroll from Tiana. She loved that scroll and carried it around for the entire rest of the day.







We were running a little late for our reservation at Hollywood Brown Derby which was at 6:40. I don't even think we got to the bus until 6:30! ( going back in my texts to Corey those are the times it says)

Emme and I had fun on the bus with that scroll she was carrying around! We would each take turns holding it up to our ears and the other would say something in our ear. It tickled and she thought that was funny!

Next up: Hollywood Brown Derby
