Fairly new... still gets a tag :)
HOLD THE PHONE!
I think it's easier to reason with a CHIMPANZEE than to reason with a tween/early teen!

Brenda!! I am so glad you're here and first to boot! I wouldn't feel right doing this TR without you!

Of course I can only do that when I'm not wearing the "No Dancing" shirt.

Thank you! Oh my, I LOVE that shirt. I wear it constantly. I think I bought it 2 or 3 years ago when they were "for a limited time only". Of course, they're still for sale today. That may be good, since I will probably need a new one soon.

glad you had a great solo trip and can't wait to hear about the magic!!!!
and thank you. I will do my very best not to confuse any dual readers. I think I should be able to organize to at least be updating for different parks around the same time. Otherwise I'll get confused too. Ah who am I kidding... I'll get confused anyway.

Katt. I hope you had a great (albeit short) mini trip last week.

Haha that shirt is totally home made... nothing but a $5 Walmart T and iron on transfer paper. It turned out pretty good though. I love making shirts for my Disney trips.

Thanks Katt.. so glad you're here.

FILLIN' ME UP... LET THE MEMORIES BEGIN!
Day 1  April 27, 2013 Part 1



one and all so much for joining in and following along.
I truly appreciate it and Im honored to have you all here!!

Now, lets get this plane in the air!




Travel day is always a combination of stress and excitement.
Im always thinking, Why cant someone finally invent safe teleportation? Cmon scientist people& get on it. Enough with studying the mating habits of the West African cockroach. I just need to get to Disney faster!

Since teleportation was not yet an option, my wonderful parents picked me up bright and early to take me to the airport, as they have so many times before.
On the drive, things just kept popping into my head&

What am I forgetting? Will I get there on time?
Did Mowgli REALLY just make an appearance at Animal Kingdom?

OK, the last one just popped into my head now but the answer is YES!!

Thankfully, all the self induced stress was for not, as check in, security, and US customs went smoothly and quickly.
In fact, I had the same exact US customs officer that I had this past October.

After a quick coffee fuel-up courtesy of the newly installed Tim Hortons in the US departures area (Im Canadian so Tim Hortons' addiction is instilled at birth), I was soon on the plane for my direct flight to Orlando.



Then finally I was in the air.





And leaving Nova Scotia behind.



Thankfully, there was a little in-flight entertainment to help pass the time.



A few hours later, I was over MCO& Orlando International Airport., but I noticed I was not alone


Are we racing???

Before long, however, we were safely on the ground.



After disembarking the plane, I quickly made my way over to the MCO fake-o-rail, complete with Disney advertising (and Universal advertising, but whatever. Its Harry Potter so Ill let it pass.)







I really wish this was my home airport, though in a way, it kind of is.



Since I was not using Magical Express, I booked a car.
Nothing against Magical Express at all, I just like the freedom a car brings, plus I got a wonderful price.
What can I say, I like to drive, I like freedom, and I hate buses.



In minutes (due to being a Dollar Express member), I was on the road and headed home, once again hearing the Angels sing as I passed under what is probably the best sign in the history of ever.
