    HI EVERYONE! Welcome to my first Trip Report! I did a Pre-Trip Report – “It’s Guys Like You Mickey..” which you can read here. It’s not very long, but for those of you who would rather not read it, I’ll give you a brief overview! THANKS SO MUCH to my AWESOME readers for following my PTR, and hopefully coming over here to read this TR! You guys are awesome :goodvibes

    So let's get started!

    I’m Cinderella, a 21 year-old college student. Here's me:

    I love, love, love Disney World but I can rarely find people to go down to Orlando with me. Everyone my age thinks that they are "too cool for Disney" or that “Disney is for kids” Even my parents think it is weird that I’m 21 and still find things to do there. :confused3 Sad, I know. Anyways, I’ve been going to Disney World every year for the past few years during the spring to watch Spring Training baseball. After last year, though, my team moved out to Arizona so I really didn’t expect to go back to Disney any time soon after last spring.

    However, my friend – Aurora – is married to an awesome guy who happens to play professional baseball! This winter he signed with the MLB team I did my internship with, and they train in Florida! So this was the perfect excuse to go down to the Orlando area and visit with old friends and watch some baseball.

    But you didn’t think I could make it to Florida without going to Disney World, did you? Of course not! So I recruited my friend – Belle – to come with me and “do” Disney again. She isn’t a Disney nut like me, and I think she was just excited to go to Florida to be in the warm weather!

    However, we booked our flights for 3/18-3/23, got an awesome deal on a hotel, made some ADR's and were off to WDW! Please stay tuned so I can share our awesome adventures with you!

    So on Wednesday morning I had a final exam, so we were booked on the last flight out that night. We headed to the airport and grabbed a bite to eat since we knew it would be hard to find someplace that was open when we arrived at the resort later that night. I’ve NEVER seen the airport so crowded and I fly quite often, so it took a long time to get something for dinner. But by the time we were done, it was time to board the plane!

    I boarded before Belle did (Southwest) and saved her a seat. When we were waiting for the rest of the passengers to board we noticed that our male flight attendant was very attractive. This is terrible, but we assumed he was – you know… not interested in us. So stereotypical, I know. :confused3 Then about halfway through the flight he started talking to us about where we were going, etc. He gave us free drinks after he asked if we were “of age” and we talked with him for quite a bit. We decided to write down our numbers and hand it to him as we left, which Belle did ever so smoothly.:laughing: We NEVER do this!! But he totally looked like Kyle XY/Matt Dallas. Google him if you’ve never seen him – so cute!

    So we landed at MCO around 10:30PM and headed downstairs to the ME counter. I was really surprised that it was so busy that late, but it seemed like there were quite a few international travelers. Our bus to All Star Sports waited a while until it was full and our driver said that the All Star Sports resort was the first stop!!! Here’s a photo I took while waiting for the bus to load:

    [​IMG]

    So we started on the bus ride and as the video began to play, Belle and I got text messages - who could be texting us this late? Everyone we knew had already been informed that we had arrived safely. So I open the message at the same time as Belle and we see that it is from the flight attendant! He offered to show us around downtown Orlando with his buddy, but we said he should come to WDW and hang out with us at DTD or Boardwalk. He didn’t like that idea and after some pretty strange text messages, we decided to igore him. (I know, we shouldn't have given him our #'s – my mother already told me not to give my number to strange people. He was just soo cute!)

    So by the time we knew we weren’t interested in Mr. Southwest anymore, we had arrived at All Star Sports! I tried to take a photo of the outside but it was difficult to do in the dark and it really just didn’t come out. We grabbed our luggage from under the bus (well, the ME guy did) and headed inside to check in. Here is the check in area:

    The CM told us that we were in the Tennis area, so we headed though the pool area (which was still hopping at almost midnight!) and past this cute Lifeguard post.

    When we finally got to our room, we opened the door and saw this on one of the beds! So cute!

    Here’s what the rest of the room looked like:

    We didn’t even bother unpacking since we were getting up early to grab breakfast and meet Aurora before heading over to Animal Kindom Lodge and then to EPCOT for the day. We turned on our new best friend Stacey :rotfl2: and fell asleep immediately!

    I was pretty nervous about staying at All Star Sports. I really, really don’t like those outdoor corridors. It makes me feel unsafe when traveling with just one other person. Also the latch lock on our door was loose and I was scared it would come out. It still kept the door locked, but it made me nervous. I probably wouldn’t stay at All Star Sports again, but it did the job for our first night.

    Oooh he looked like Matt Dallas?! Yum! :love: You should've taken a picture with him. :laughing:

    Aw, you got a Mickey head towel! We got one of those on our '07 trip! I didn't want to pick it up and ruin it!

    I'm so glad you started! :woohoo: Matt Dallas is HOT! I love him in Katy Perry's "Thinking Of You" video :laughing: What kinds of strange texts was he sending?!

    Sorry about not liking the hotel. I've never been to the All Stars and don't think I'd stay there. The outdoor corridors don't bother me but they remind me of regular budget hotels which you can stay at for so much cheaper outside of Disney. I like the moderates and deluxes better!

    I'm a HUGE baseball fan so I think it's the coolest thing ever that you interned for a team. Go Yankees!!! :laughing: I can't wait for the season to start!

    And I love that pic of you and DC! I loved him last season! I'm not into his new album though, it sounds too much like Nickelback who I can't stand. I still think he's cool though. Was he nice? He played a small show at my cousin's college two months ago and she said he was a really nice guy!

    We thought about it but then got too preoccupied with contemplating whether or not to pass along our #'s LOL!

    Thank you! Yes, look him up. He's adorable!

    Good idea!!

    Yes, the rooms were not as bad as I expected. We had a ME stop at Pop on the way back to MCO. While I didn't see the rooms, the grounds looked really nice.

    Hahah, I cut my roommate from my internship out of that photo. She was a bit odd, so I wouldn't doubt that she pinched his butt or something and that's why he made that face! He was pretty nice, but ITA w/you about his CD. Sooooo disappointing b/c I LOVED him on the show!

    Can't wait for baseball, you have NO IDEA!

    You are never too cool or too old for Disney. I try to make it down every couple of years and usually end up going solo for marathon weekend...and it's been a while since I was 21:rolleyes1
