    This trip report begins on Thursday, March 18. I worked half a day, and checked my girls out of school at 11:30. We grabbed some lunch-to-go and headed to my sister’s house, an hour east of us. Once at her house, we loaded her bags, moved car seats, and had a “last you for a while” potty break.

    We were on the road a little before 2 p.m. and headed to Tallahassee. After a long 7 hour car ride, we arrived in Tallahassee. We found the hotel we had booked for the night and settled into our room.

    Day 2---Friday, March 19

    The next morning we were grabbing a quick breakfast in the hotel and we noticed a funny smell. :confused3 We were sitting along a ¾ wall that separated the food area from the dining area. I went around to grab a box of cereal and noticed a man heating something up in the microwave. Then I noticed a take-out box sitting on the counter. It was from Red Lobster---That guy was warming up his seafood from the previous night. GROSS---he was stinking up the entire lobby! :eek:

    We had set a goal of leaving by 9 the next morning, but didn’t quite make it. I think we left around 9:15.

    We arrived at POR around 1:30 p.m. I had done online check-in a few days before, so there was no wait. I was told that our room was in building 15 (which is good, --I’d requested that or 18), but that it was not ready. I gave the CM my cell number and she told me I would get a text when it was ready. I got back to my van, and as soon as I sat down, I got the text telling me that the room was ready. :yay: So, we headed over to the room to unload our luggage. We were in the Alligator Bayou section, room 1513.

    It was a little past two o’clock. We decided to head over to Magic Kingdom.

    We had the unfortunate timing of walking in just as the afternoon parade finished. :scared1: YIKES!! We made our way SLOWLY down Main Street. :crowded::crowded::crowded:

    As we walked, we got closer to this beautiful sight:
