Hi everyone! So we just got home from our long weekend at WDW and I am ready to start posting away. I am uploading pictures now so they will follow shortly but in the mean time I will tell you a bit about our trip. We knew we wanted to get away for a weekend but did not know for sure until 3 weeks before I booked it. The onsite resorts were pretty steep at the time so we decided to turn in points and stay at offsite for the first time in 6 years... but a free trip is better than no trip plus they offer free breakfast. The Staybridge Suites is located right by DTD, there are plenty of big chain restaurants nearby. They gave us a one bedroom suite that was huge and a bag of homeade cookies as a welcoming gift. The place was very clean and great for a longer stay but we really missed being onsite. Oh and the free breakfast? BLECH! Now if you read my reports you know we are huge fruit people and they did not offer any fruits. There was eggs drowing in watery yellow liquid, bacon swimming in grease and dry cereal...no thanks we will eat onsite! Onto the weather..ok so it was hot, I mean blazing hot that your skin is starting to BBQ itself if you do not have enough sunscreen on. And did I mention the rain??? The first day at AK it rained for over an hour so hard you could not see right in front of your face, it was like that for a few hours (started around 4) and there was a ton of thunder and big time lightening. On Saturday it started at 10 am and rained off and on all day long, the rain started back up again at 10am today and was pouring from the time we left WDW (11ish) until we got to North Port FL....the newscast said rain, heavy thunder and lightening all week! Now we are totally used to this because we live in FL but for some reason we forget what it is like to go in the summer....we normally have the seasonal passes that block off the summer months but this time DH talked me into buying the year 'round ones. Ok so it was hot and so it rained but we were at WDW! If you are going this summer bring umbrellas and ponchos! Hollywood Studios was a slam packed on Saturday so if you are planning on going to the Star Wars thing next weekend get there super duper early and be prepared for long lines...and get your FP's for the new Toy Story ride as soon as you get in the park. Ok, just finished uploading so lets get this show on the road!
