"Please Stand Up Before Exiting! BYE BYE!" WDW June 2013! UPDATE x3 1/25

"Please Stand Up Before Exiting! BYE BYE!" WDW June 2013!


Hello disboards! Welcome to my very first trip report! I have read many trip reports by many lovely disers and have since been inspired to join the fun! This trip report is filled with best friends, parks on parks on parks, sleep-deprived moments, and more! So please sit back, relax, and enjoy your ride!

Here is some much needed information about this vacation:

First off, ME!

Bonnie




HELLO! My name is Bonnie, I am a 19 year old pre-med college student living the Disney life. I have been going to Disney World since I was in utero, and it never loses its magic! Disney World is my home, not Ohio, and I go every single chance I get! I have gone on 20 plus magical vacations to the World and 1 magical vacation to the Land in California (I have a trip coming up in August, eep! )! The majority of my ipod is Disney music, I have way too many Disney t shirts, and I quote Disney on the daily. I love all things Disney and I can't wait to share my most recent trip with all the other Disney fanatics out there!

Favorite Park: Magic Kingdom
Favorite Attraction: Big Thunder Mountain, It's a Small World, Haunted Mansion, and Tower of Terror (to name a few!)
Favorite Restaurant: Liberty Tree Tavern, Narcoossee's, 1900 Park Fare, and Mama Melrose
Favorite Movie: Lady and the Tramp, Tangled, 101 Dalmatians, Monsters Inc, and Cinderella
Favorite Characters: Cinderella, Rapunzel, Minnie Mouse, Mike Wazowski, Rover, and the can-can dolls in It's a Small World

And my traveling companion:

Erika




Erika is 18 years old and has just graduated high school (part of the reason we took this trip!)! We met when she was a freshman and I was a sophomore in high school and have been best friends ever since! She is my favorite person on the planet and my fellow sass master. She is a DVC member (LUCKY.) and loves Disney almost as much as I do! I'm working on her, don't worry! She loves Disney World and all Disney movies! She's the best.

Favorite Park: Magic Kingdom
Favorite Attraction: Tower of Terror, Soarin', and the Triple Mountain Whammy!
Favorite Restaurant: 50s Prime Time Cafe (its the fried chicken, guys)
Favorite Movie: The Aristocats
Favorite Character: Donald Duck, Chip n Dale, and Mickey Mouse

Now let's get down to business!

Who? Read the above post!
What? A 5 day trip to the Walt Disney World resort! WOO!
When? June 12, 2013-June 17, 2013
Where? Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa (Thanks Erika's Dad for the DVC points! )
Why? Um because DISNEY! And to celebrate Erika's graduation from high school, yay!

Here we goooo! Off to the trip report!

Chapter 1

Chapter 1: We Leave for Disney Tomorrow! NO SLEEP!

Today started out as any ordinary day except that I jumped out of my bed and did a celebratory happy dance because I WAS LEAVING FOR DISNEY WORLD TOMORROW. So much to do, yet so much time to kill!

I kind of just slothed around my house waiting for 3:00 to roll around. I took a shift to work the PHC table at New Student Orientation at my school (PHC stands for Panhellenic Council which is the governing body for sororities, as I am in one at my school!) in order to have something to do today aside from wait for tomorrow to be here!

After orientation, my mom took me out to dinner at Macaroni Grill! It was our last dinner before my vacation and we wanted to spend some quality time together before I left her until Monday. (Sidenote: I love my mom to death, she is like my best friend so leaving her was really sad!)

Then FINALLY it was time for Erika to come over after her shift was done at Office Max! YAY! The trip can finally begin! She came over, we ate, I packed around 11 pm (last minute I know!), watched some TV, and finally did some Disney nails!


Mine:



And sadly I forgot to take a picture of Erika's But hers were red with white polka dots, with yellow mickeys on her ring fingers! (Accent nail, very fancy!)

After nails time we watched some more TV and around 1:30 Erika fell asleep on me so I went to my bed and tried to do the same. But I couldn't. Shocker. So I laid in bed and watched some Netflix and finally fell asleep around 3:30, with an alarm set for 4:30!

What's next? Travel day fun of course! Stay tuned!

Next Chapter!

Disney nails are A LOT more ubiquitous than I ever thought. I didn't even realize they were a thing until joining this site.

Haha they are! I'm a really big fan of nail art, it's a hobby and stress reliever for me especially when I am in school! So of course I have to do Disney nails when I go!

Chapter 2

Chapter 2: Thanks for the Ride to the Airport Mom!

I bolted out of bed at 4:30 AM, having only slept for maybe an hour, rarin' to go! IT'S FINALLY TIME TO GET MY BOOTY TO DISNEY WORLD. I curled my hair (I don't know why because the florida humidity basically made it go almost completely straight by the end of the day, )

Sidestory: I wear contacts/glasses and when I went to put my contacts in, I had forgotten that I did my nails only a few hours before and didn't wash the acetone off my hands. So when I went to put the contact in my eye, my eye immediately rejected it and started burning and turned bright red. Oops. I was able to put them both in a little later, but this story is necessary for later in the TR. Again, I digress.

I woke up Erika around 5:15 AM, much to her chagrin, and we both simultaneously finished getting ready and finished packing necessary toiletries that we used that morning.

Around 5:30 AM we both decided it was time to stop twiddling our thumbs in my room and take our bags downstairs. We loaded them up in my mom's car and then decided to have some breakfast. And that breakfast was cold Pizza Hut pizza. YUM. (also kinda disgusting for 5:30 AM... )

My dad left Erika and I this note:




He's the cutest.

FINALLY. At 6:00 AM my mom comes downstairs and we were off to the airport! It was a boring drive, typical morning traffic, nothing really that exciting happened, although I'm sure Erika dozed off here and there on that drive (I felt bad making her get up so early, but come on, ITS DISNEY. NO SLEEP.)!

We reached the airport around 6:30! We waiting in the check-in line because I needed to check my bag. The lady at the counter commented on our shirts and asked if we were going to work at Disney because we were so happy and hyper. No, we're just REALLY excited to go to Disney and we just love it okay? We're children. NO ONE'S MAD.

After this encounter (she really was sweet and helped us out A LOT), we made it through security and sat at our gate! On the way to our gate I got a delicious Cinnabon cinnamon roll, yummmmm

Get us to Disney please!



Around 7:15 AM our 8:00 AM flight was finally ready to board! We were seated on our plane within 15 minutes, yay! Our flight was pretty boring, there was some turbulence here and there, and a creepy smelly old man sat next to Erika (poor thing)...But luckily we slept for the majority of the flight (it makes it go faster!)! Unfortunately, we missed the free drinks and pretz, dangit! But a beautiful announcement came over the plane "we are beginning to make our descent into sunny Orlando, please fasten your seat belts" LET'S GO LET'S GO!

Up Next: WE MADE IT TO ORLANDO! (Finally!)

Next Chapter!
