Subbing! I always enjoy your trip reports. I've just made reservations for a last minute December trip, as I had a week of vacation left for this year (use it or lose it!) so what better place to go? I have reserved a Candlelight Processional package, so I am looking forward to that as well.

It was an early morning for my mom, dad and I! We had to leave the house by 530 in order to make it to the airport to check in for our flight. My mom and I were hyped up on Disney excitement though! This trip seemed pretty surreal since we had gone to Disney so many times this year already and it snuck up on us with how busy the past couple months had been!

When we got to the airport we said our goodbyes, checked our bags and headed for security. The line was insane! Luckily it moved pretty quickly but when I tried to get through my bag was taken One of the TSA agents pulled me aside to go through my bag. Well we had a DISmeet with the lovely MEK on our first day and we had bought her some of the famous Michigan made Sanders hot fudge. It was too big to be allowed on the plane It was a tiny little package and all sealed up but we couldn't bring it. Luckily we had also bought chocolate for her or else our entire present would have been taken!

After that fiasco we tried to find some food. Finding gluten free food at an airport is a bit challenging! By the time we found it our plane was boarding! It wasn't a full flight so my mom and I got a row to ourselves. (With Southwest you board according to number and don't have assigned seats. It's first come first serve.)

After we were done eating my mom got up to throw her food away. Well it was during the lock down of the plane so she got yelled at by one of the flight attendants! We were not having good luck so far!

I watched the sunrise



Then fell asleep!

I was out of it for most of the flight and woke up to play Uno with my mom. Before we know it we are being told we are landing in Florida!!!!!!!!!! I always love that feeling!


We hurried off the plane and boarded our first ride of the trip!



When we got to the Magical Express area our magic bands didn't work so we had to use the booklet. We had two different reservations for our trip and didn't get our magic bands for our first half of the trip ahead of time.

The ME area was dead!!!



We had a bus to ourselves so we grabbed the first seats hoping for a good picture of the gates!

After waiting for what seemed like forever more people got on and we headed to WDW!



Those first row seats paid off!



Crossing over into Disney property is amazing! You leave all your cares behind and just focus on the fun!

We stopped at one hotel then arrived at our hotel for the night!



We were staying concierge level at Boardwalk! This is my favorite resort so of course I was excited!



I just love this hotel!



We checked in then made our way to the concierge room



This is where they set up all the food and beverages throughout the day









The view from the concierge room



It's not much of one and I wish it was over more and overlooked the Boardwalk! One of the things we liked better about DL concierge was the fact they play Disney movies all day! AT WDW they always have on the news and who wants to watch the news on vacation

Before we left we ran in to a CM who commented on my Darth Vader sweatshirt. It turns out the guy who played Bobba Fett in the original movies stays at Boardwalk!

We had been texting with MEK so it was time to go over and meet her!





Such a beautiful area!










This area had been somewhat redone. I didn't remember Cat Kora's picture being there before.

My favorite half of the Boardwalk!



Although we did agree Beach Club concierge was better!





Home sweet home!





I love this slide although this trip it was way too cold to swim! I don't know how young kids enjoy pools when it is so cold!





I cannot get enough of this view!



I love this picture!




If you can't guess by now we were headed to Beaches and Cream!





We met MEK and her husband Denny outside the restaurant and exchanged gifts and hugs! We have known her since we started the DIS boards so we were very excited to meet her!

It wasn't long before the restaurant opened and we headed inside for more talking and some food! It was fun hearing about their trip and Food and Wine! It was my first time getting to experience it so I made sure to ask what drinks I should try!


Our food eventually came and we didn't choose anything exciting



My mom got her usual hot dog

and I got



gluten free grilled cheese! Which may not seem that exciting but tasted amazing!

None of us opted for dessert and it was time for MEK and Denny to head out for their flight. We said our goodbyes but of course got a picture first!



It was great meeting them! MEK is every bit as funny and great to talk to as she was on the boards and Denny must be used to DISmeets by now because my mom and were surprised by how talkative he was In the past MEK has said he was weary of DISmeets so it was nice to get a chance to get to know him too! It was an amazing lunch so thank you again MEK!


After our lunch we headed to get our tickets. I will leave you there!

The first night of the Drunken Punkin!

Looking forward to another great trip report from you. You always do such a good job with relating your trip in a way that makes me feel as if I am right there with you. One question, does your husband get jealous that you get to go so often without him? If I had a beautiful wife like you i'd never let you go without me!!!!

Funny to see that Family Feud was on the TV in the concierge room! I used to love that show when Richard Dawson was the host. I even had (have) the home version of the game!

Yay! We meet!

While Denny and I were driving over to meet you he said, "Are your friends still on the magical mystery tour…hum…I mean magical express?"

That totally cracked me up! In fact, I might use that in my TR title.

I am so happy we finally got to meet. I really enjoyed lunch and my grilled cheese sandwich was also really yummy. I will definitely be having another one of those.

I really hope our trips overlap again in the future.

I love that the CL overlooks my favorite pool. I absolutely love the quiet pool at the Boardwalk. I seriously could live there. That lounge is really cute.
Did you guys LOVE staying there? Wait, that's a silly question.
