    Yay, the trip report is up! I don't check this section of the boards as frequently as I should, but now that I'm here I can't wait to read about everything (from the food to the resorts to the Dis meets)! :yay:

    Yay, I've been waiting for you to start your TR. :cool1: I started reading your PTR while you were gone... and may have also read all your other PTRs, TRs, DRs.

    I can't wait to read all about the fun you had on your trip, especially your DR and Dis meets.

    Alright!! I'm in! I read all your other reports, in fact I've read so many reports on the Dis I feel like I really know so many people (even if I'm a bit of a lurker and not a poster lol) :rotfl:
    Can't wait to read about the list, the Dis meets and of course the FOOD! :thumbsup2

    Whoa...you are doing two reports at the same time??? Twice the fun...works for me! :woohoo:

    With this one I only got here in time to make Page 2! :scared: I think I'm going to need a "wake-up" text before you post your next updates. :lmao:


    Oh, and by the way, I love the picture of all of you in front of the castle. Perfect intro to your TR! :thumbsup2

    Saturday August 18, 2012: Day 1 – Part 1

    Who’s excited to have their alarm go off at 4:27am?? This gal!! Well, let me clarify, I am excited to wake up that early only when there is a castle to behold at the end of the day!

    [​IMG]

    So I probably got about 4 hours and 26 minutes of sleep but it would have to do since we needed to catch a plane. My dad arrived at our house at 5:30am to drive us the whopping 7 minutes to our local airport.

    If anyone read my PTR I had mentioned that as a surprise I had booked 1st class airfare for the three of us. However, I ended up spilling my guts to Michael since I couldn’t keep the secret all the way until the trip. Here’s how that conversation took place:

    Me: So do you want to know the secret I have planned?
    Michael: You want to tell me don’t you? Just tell me since it’s going to make you feel better!
    Here’s where he started just asking questions so I thought I’ll just let him guess so I won’t technically tell him the secret!
    Michael: Does it involve a ride?
    Brenda: Yes, but not in the way you think.
    Michael: Is it during the trip?
    Brenda: Define when the trip starts?
    Michael: Is it in traveling to our hotel?
    Brenda: Yes
    Michael: Does it have to do with an airplane? Do we have window seats?
    Brenda: You are close. (He was asking good questions)
    Michael: Our seats were upgraded to 1st class?
    Brenda: Not really….
    Michael: Below first class?
    Brenda: Well, it’s the definition of one of those words.
    Michael: First? Or Class? Is it first class seats?
    Brenda: YES!
    Michael: That’s cool!
    And just so you know…. As eager as I was to share this surprise, I shouldn’t have. The night before we left Michael accidently said something that Emily overheard and that was it… no more surprise!

    So there we were at the airport…we’d checked our 5 bags, went through security and no bells or alarms went off so we were apparently fine. Once on the plane I immediately made use of all of the complimentary amenities – heck I’m going to look like a tourist in 1st class – and I got out the blanket, the pillow and started to take photos! Michael was sitting across the aisle from Em and I so he could pretend that he didn’t know me. That is until I hand the camera to him and ask him to take a photo of us! "Why certainly lady that I don't even know!!"

    [​IMG]

    Here’s the link to my first dining review – albeit plane food – but still the first meal of the trip!


    We had a connecting flight through DFW so our next flight segment contained lunch. Yippee! Another meal!

    [​IMG]

    We boarded our flight at DFW and I was immediately offered a cocktail. Why yes, I would like a Bloody Mary please. Now here’s the thing, I thought I would be able to leisurely enjoy my drink but no, they informed me 2 minutes after it was served that I had to finish it before the flight took off. Hmph! I finished most of it but I didn’t think it would be a great idea to slam that cocktail.


    [​IMG]

    Since there's not a lot to tell here... let's just say that we ate again. Here's the link to our lunch served on the plane.

    Em and I have a tradition to watch Disney’s Tangled on her iPhone during our flight to Orlando. So following this tradition we enjoyed this adorable Disney movie.

    [​IMG]

    By the time the movie was almost over, we were landing. Yay!!!! We are finally here! Our flight landed at 5pm.


    Note: I did resize these photos.. hopefully they will adjust once I post this! Otherwise, yikes!

    Next Up: Boardwalk!

    Well I am embarrassed, since I read your dining report first and was surprised you had two meals on your flight. Now I see why. :lmao:

    Yep, hate to fly, so a bit slow on the draw. We drive from central TX and are leaving in NINE days!!

    I love bloody Marys or Caesars (up here in Canada). Wow that is early but I agree with you. Brenda- worth it if there is a castle involved. XD

    Looks like you guys got some great plane food!! That stinks that you weren't forewarned that you'd have to rush through your drink though! I'm also very good at getting up early when there's Disney to get to! :rotfl:
