Cast of Characters:

Me, Tina (aka Dorothy from the Golden Girls) then 37, French Immersion kindergarten teacher although I’ve taught many other grades. I have a HUGE family, and by huge, I mean the size of Expedition Everest. 9 siblings, 16 nieces and nephews so far, many brothers and sisters in laws, aunts and uncles and cousins. I can’t pick a favorite park because I’m always scared to hurt another park’s feelings. (I never could pick a favorite from New Kids on the Block and I really struggle between picking between Sam and Dean too…) Same goes for rides. I love everything. I do have some that I see more often than not, but that’s okay. Besides the parks, I love my family, my job (it helps that it pays for my Disney trips!), reading and photography. I am learning to take things a little more slowly at WDW, as I used to be a park commando.

Here I am at Disneyland last year.

Blanche asked me not to post any pictures on here, so I will respect her privacy. Sometimes she might end up here, but she’ll look like this:



from raw-7864 for disboards by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I will also respect her and not say how old she is, but her birthday is coming up in a few days and let’s just say that the year she was born has some smaller numbers in it than my birth year does! She is my Disney friend. She is actually my sister’s sister in law. This sister I usually call Rose on my TRs. So there, we are the Golden Girls. Except we interchange our names based on what we are doing at the time. But usually we are those ones. Blanche loves taking breaks and people watching, and has a love/hate relationship with the thrill rides. She rides them, but screams that she is going to die and that she has to get off. I usually end up taking pictures or videos of her doing that because it is so funny. She loves to read and to garden. She has had a hard time with her hip on the past few trips, and even came last time with a semi-healed broken foot. Blanche also has a big family.

When: Aug 18-27, 2013
Where: Walt Disney World of course! Oh, you want something more specific? One night at Art of Animation and the rest at Pop Century.


*** I wish we could add some more interesting fonts for our TRS!

On Aug 18, 2013 I got up extremely early to hop on a plane and go to one of my favorite places. The night before, I double checked that I had everything I wanted, and tried to pick the worst of my two pairs of sandals, because I was hoping to find a replacement pair while at the outlet malls, and thought I’d just leave those in the garbage of my room. (Remember this for later)

Normally Blanche and Rose pick me up, and that was the plan for this trip. They picked me up and when we got to the airport, I realized that Blanche didn’t look too well. When we were getting our bags out of the drunk and Blanche stayed in the car for a minute, Rose told me that Blanche was sick, as in extremely flu, stomach like sick! I told her that Blanche could not fly like that!

Once inside, she sat down for a minute then asked us to watch her stuff as she wanted to ask the Delta people a question. She came back and said that she’d join me in a day or two depending on how she felt then! Oh no! But I totally understood, she could not fly like that. It would be too hard on her and she couldn’t really make the whole plane sick by spreading it around, could she?

So I checked in and went through security then waited to board the plane. I normally fly Air Canada, but the trip to DL before was through WJ down and AC back home. This trip was Delta through NYC (as opposed to Toronto or Montreal) down and WJ through Toronto on the way back. Those are our three options out of Charlottetown. AC/WJ and Delta.

I kind of felt like it was a little squishy in the seat. I mean, I was fine, but it seemed like there wasn’t a lot of leg room.

*** Note the first bunch of pictures and some throughout the report will have been taken with my cell phone. The majority will be with my lovely camera (Canon , and be much nicer and prettier!


WDW 1 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Here is what PEI looks like from the air.


WDW 2 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Honestly, I didn’t have any issues with the Delta flight or service, but there was no entertainment at all. No TVs on the seats, no movie on shared screens. Thankfully I had my Kobo so I read on the first flight. I think I was rereading my Harry Potter books on it. I love Harry Potter! I had no issues with my connection, but it was a little annoying as we landed, then had to take a shuttle to another terminal to go through customs, then security and check back in, and then another bus back to the first terminal for the second flight. A little crazy, in my opinion.

I think this is when I was landing in NYC…


WDW 4 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


WDW 5 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

This is the bus that we had to take back and forth from the terminals. Maybe I should have stood like most everyone else.


WDW 3 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I had a Caesar salad and a Frosty at Wendy’s for lunch before getting into a seat to wait it out.


WDW 7 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Next flight was fine again, but I just tried to sleep and read some more. Honestly, it seems like forever since I’ve been on a flight that doesn’t have some sort of entertainment! Most of the time it’s only the little planes that fly out of Charlottetown that don’t have anything, and the last few times they have the tvs too.

Here are some fun clouds I saw along the way.


WDW 11 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


WDW 13 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Am I landing in Orlando soon?


WDW 15 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Once I landed at MCO, I found my way to DME and then waited a few minutes for my bus, but Art of Animation was the first stop! YAY!

Sorry they are blurry... I was walking and snapping. I was so excited to be there again!


WDW 16 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


WDW 17 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


WDW 18 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


WDW 19 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


My first palm trees! I love, love, love palm trees. Of course, they make me think of Walt Disney World or Disneyland, because Florida and California (for Disney) are the only places I’ve been that have palm trees!


WDW 20 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


WDW 22 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


WDW 23 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Not that this is clear, but it really is a pretty airport. I wonder if palm trees can grow in Canada. Can I get a small potted one for my room?


WDW 24 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Oooh! I get so excited when I see Disney things!


WDW 26 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


WDW 28 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


WDW 33 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


WDW 34 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

And then that’s where my notes end! LOL I am TERRIBLE at taking notes while on vacation.

Still at MCO. I love seeing that first Mickey hand. I probably missed some of the other people with hands, sorry other people!


from raw-8394 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

More palm trees:


from raw-8395 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

The DME movie


from raw-8398 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I LOVE this sign, but really, who doesn’t?


from raw-8399 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Every year I say I'll get a better shot, but it all depends on where I am sitting on the bus!

I was the first hotel! I love seeing the other hotels, but Iím usually ready to get to my home too, so itís nice when Iím first! I checked in, and there wasn't much of a wait, just a few people ahead of me. Check in was fine and my room was ready! I excitedly took pictures on my way to my room. And I took so many pictures of the hotel that they won't all fit in this post! Dis limit is 25, so here is your first clue that this will be a photo heavy TR! (For those who have never read any of my TRs before.) And some pictures will be more snapshots for the memory (like the ones from the bus) and others I will have put more thought into trying to make a picture.

I have to say that I loved it. I love all the differences about the hotels. I love the values, I love the mods, I love the deluxes (just not the price tag on my little salary). I love the feeling of being immersed in Disney.


from raw-8415 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Oh, in case you were wondering, I was in a Little Mermaid room. I loved how the CM told me to get there. I should have written down her directions or video taped her or something. It was something the lines of swimming by the pool, flipping my fins past something else. That type of thing. So cute!

I haven't even made it to my room and I took too many pictures for the post! Hahahaha. I even deleted some pictures.

Yes, I was in love with the resort already. I loved the look of the hotel. I loved the theming. I loved the details. And I loved taking photos of it all. It was a beautiful, hot day. Just the way I like it when I am at Walt Disney World!

Have I mentioned that I was in love already? I just wish you could get discounts for the LM rooms! I understand why thy don't though. They should have made more rooms for people like me.

Finishing up the room tour:

I love Mickey soap!

The shape of the dresser reminds me of the armoire in Beauty and the Beast.

I was done with the room for a little bit because I was hungry! I needed some Disney food.

Apparently it had rained while I was inside checking out my room.

Ok... you need to click on this picture and then click to see the next picture. It almost seems like Zasu moved his head! (You might need to go back a picture, I'm not sure how the linkiing works.)

Hmmmm... I don't think I took as many pictures of some areas of the food court than others. I think I need to go back and fix that! Even if I don't stay at the hotel, I can go for lunch or supper and take some more pictures!


from raw-8484 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Yes, I took pictures of the menus. I wanted to provide information for people, just in case. Sorry I'm so slow!

That's all for today!

I ended up booking All Star Sports for 8 nights and Port Orleans Riverside for 7 nights for us! Sports will be the last value I've stayed at. I've been to POR before, but that's okay, I love it. Just over 4 months and I'll be back!

I guess I need to head back to AoA another time because one night just doesn't cut it! Maybe that will be next year, literally, since this is my March Break now.

I'm loving all the pictures. I stayed there in 2012 and unless I get a good discount, I will not stay in the mermaid rooms again. We loved them, but they are so far out and the price is just not worth it to me. I debated on doing a suite for a 1 night post cruise, but we decided to do OKW to knock another resort off my list of stays.

I remember reading your TR and loving all your pictures! There will be many more pictures to come, because I walked over a few times from Pop, or took the bus back to AoA in the evening. The LM rooms are far, but I was only there for the one night, so it didn't seem to bother me. I didn't really feel like it was too bad. It might get old on a long trip.

Yay! Another resort checked off! I wanted to stay at OKW for the second part of this trip, but my sister was not "enamored" with it. She really wanted POR, as did her husband, so I went with it. Not that it is a problem, I really love POR. And this time I'm taking a tripod to get some better night shots!

You're not too late, I haven't even left the resort for the first park yet!
