    “IF THIS IS A DREAM, I DON’T WANT TO WAKE UP”

    :dance3: – POP! Goes The Solo Trip – :dance3:



    Hello Frump Fans!!!
    Wait… Nope, that’s the intro to a different trip report.
    Let’s try that again, shall we?



    Welcome one and all to my 2nd Trip Report on these here DISBoards (now in Technicolor) and a trip that was less than 2 weeks in the making.

    For those of you who are reading along with trip report #1 (still in progress incidentally) recounting the October trip from a mere 6 months ago,
    Conveniently located right here,

    A SALUTE TO ALL ORLANDO AREA THEME PARKS… BUT MOSTLY WALT DISNEY WORLD
    (*cough* shameless plug *cough*)

    Thank you for riding the Monorail on over and following along on this journey as well.
    As an added bonus, this one has original, un-borrowed food pictures!!!!
    I Know, Right!?

    For those of you who are new, a most heartfelt and sincere welcome.
    It is my absolute pleasure to have you along, and I will do my very best to make it worth your precious time.
    I know that you have many choices in Trip Reports, so I thank you for flying with me today.

    My name is Rob and I am indeed a Disney-Holic

    I honestly don’t know the total number of times I have been to Disney, but I can say with complete honesty and certainty that this trip was my most recent.

    It was, more importantly, my very first time SOLO.

    As such, this one was completely unlike any of the dozens that came before with unique experiences and stories that I can’t wait to share.

    Without giving too much away, the dates for this particular adventure ran from April 27 until May 3, 2013 staying at POP Century.

    [​IMG]

    Some highlights include, but are certainly not limited to:

    * My very first stay on Disney property! *
    * Hitting a park on arrival day (and experiencing the best showing of a particular nighttime show EVER)! *
    * The trip almost ending on day 2! :scared1: *
    * Food pics, INCLUDING deserts and snacks! *
    * A little resort hopping! *
    * My “Keys To The Kingdom” Tour! *
    * 29 real honest to goodness ride photos ! *
    * “CM’s Around The World”™… Take 2! *
    * Finally becoming completely (up from very) obsessed with my future wife Stacey J Aswad! *
    * Some “new to me” stuff along with moments in time I will never forget! *


    All this and more, with photos (in color no less) carefully chosen from the over 2000 taken in this short 6 night/7 day trip.

    If any of this sounds enticing, then please join me as I relive the week I went SOLO.

    Let's face it, Disney can be summed up with 3 M's... MAGIC... MEMORIES... and MOMENTS.

    There were a lot of overheard things and various other experiences that could have easily qualified for a TR title in most cases, but none had a bigger impact on me than the one chosen.

    For the few of you who are on my Facebook, you already know some of the details.

    For every one else, it was without a doubt one of the most emotional, tear inducing, unforgettably wonderful, perfectly MAGICAL MOMENTS in time, not only in Disney, but in my life…EVER.

    And one that I will never forget (MEMORIES).

    I genuinely hope that you will follow (or continue to follow) along with this story as it unfolds and please, leave a comment or just say Hi and let me know you’re here.

    Our flight will be departing shortly… :goodvibes
