    And Now... We Wait
    May 28, 2012

    When I last left off we were in the middle of a dilemma, PLUTO WAS AT HOME!!!

    Not good, not good at all. I called Ma to ask her if I was allowed to leave the airport once I got through security, Moms know everything so I figured she was my best bet. She said she wasn’t sure but if I went and asked a security guard she would be more than happy to bring him to me.

    So I mustered up the courage to go ask the big mean looking security guard, literally it took me maybe 20 minutes to work up the courage, I may be 22 but I am kind of a big baby. I just kept thinking do it for Pluto. This is how the conversation went…

    “Ummm… excuse me sir. I have a question for you” –me
    “Yes?” – big scary man
    “Ummmm, well if I forgot something at home that I REALLY need to take with me on a trip can I maybe leave the airport get it and come back? Or is that not allowed?” – me
    “Sure, that’s no problem at all” – big scary guy turned nice “If you want you can even just let us know when the person dropping it off is here and we can run out and get it so you don’t have to go back through security”

    Now I thought about it for a second… I just told this guy this was an item that is necessary for my trip, in reality it is a pillow. There is no way I am making him take the time to go out and get it for me.

    “Ummmm I’ll just pick it up myself I have two and a half hours to waste. Thank you for your help” – me

    “No problem. Just don’t forget to take your ID and boarding pass with you.” – nice security guy.

    Shortly after Ma arrived with Pluto. TRIP SAVED.

    We made our way back through security there was literally no one in the line. As I was gathering my belongings and heading back to the gate the security guard who I talked to saw me walking by and yelled to me “Is that what you forgot?!”

    Oh man I was so embarrassed!!! But he smiled and gave me a thumbs up and told me to enjoy my trip. What a nice guy.

    We made our way back to the gate to waste another 2.5 hours.

    Reunited and it feels so good

    [​IMG]

    Waiting waiting waiting. Texting texting texting. I had to let Bobby know that we weren’t going to be in at 11:00 like we thought we were so he shouldn’t wait up for us.

    [​IMG]

    Everyone found a way to make it through the time

    Andy caught up on some TV shows he missed due to work

    [​IMG]

    I snuggled with Pluto <3 Oh boy what an Alicia face

    [​IMG]

    Brittany redid her hair for the fifth time that night

    [​IMG]

    And Sam took some artsy pictures of the magical ears we made for the trip

    [​IMG]

    Before we knew it JetBlue!!!

    [​IMG]

    And then the lady came over the intercom and said “sorry to disappoint but that is not your aircraft” wa wa waaaaaaah….

    The good news was the baggage guys were having fun playing some basket ball

    [​IMG]

    Yes I awkwardly creeped their game. It kept me entertained for a whole five seconds haha

    [​IMG]

    Everyone had their Disney playlists going

    [​IMG]

    And even though Andy was trying to watch shows I was still being a pain in his but… Smile Andy…. Andy Smile!!!

    [​IMG]

    You can only play on your ipod for so long…

    [​IMG]

    Shortly after that Sam and Brittany decided to go off and see what there was to do. They wandered for a good 20 minutes and came back to report that EVERYTHING (as in the 3 stores that this airport has to offer) was closed.

    Meanwhile.. gurgle gurgle My stomach was screaming feed me!!!

    [​IMG]

    Andy finished watching an episode of Modern Family

    [​IMG]

    Two hours left to go!!!

    [​IMG]

    Before long my stomach went into attack mode and food needed to be found. Unfortunately as I said before EVERYTHING was closed. Except the Anchor Bar but I couldn’t justify paying $12 for something little, save that money for precious Disney food.

    We wandered a little and found a gift shop that had little snacks in it and bought the cheapest things that they had. The people in front of us were really weird. They paid for their $30 order completely with change and then the guy spit out his gum and handed it to the cashier and asked her to throw it out. SO STRANGE. Poor girl, I give her credit for putting up with them.

    What did we end up with? Well Andy got a rice crispy and some Doritos

    [​IMG]

    And I got a chocolate sucker thing with a buffalo on it. I was literally going crazy from hunger, as you can see…

    [​IMG]

    YUMMMMMMMMM and by that I mean I HAVEN’T EATTEN IN 10 HOURS THIS WILL TIDE ME OVER.

    [​IMG]

    A little more waiting

    [​IMG]

    And then…

    They old us that the plane was going to be here soon and that we should begin getting out things together so really quickly we all went to the bathroom and gathered our belongings.

    PLANE PLANE PLANE PLANE !!! MICKEY MICKEY MICKEY MICKEY !!!

    [​IMG]

    I’m going to Disney World

    [​IMG]

    Don’t be so happy Andy

    [​IMG]

    We boarded the plane. The weird thing was since we booked so late we didn’t have seats near each other so we said goodbye to one another before we boarded and then we were ready for take off!!!

    OH THANK GOD PLUTO IS SAVED! I was getting worried there for a minute.

    Why would you give your chewed up gum to a cashier?! I will never understand some people.

    YAY! Getting on the plane finally!


    I noticed your ticker for the DCP and I will be there the same time you start it!

    THIS TRIP REPORT IS SO FUN!!!! I'm loving it! :goodvibes The video you guys made is awesome. It just made me smile so much! It really captures Disney magic! :thumbsup2

    The whole Pluto fiasco made me laugh... especially when the security guard asked if that's what you left at home. THAT KIND OF THING WOULD SO HAPPEN TO ME! :lmao: Ahhh.

    I'm sorry your plane was so delayed. Usually Jet Blue is really on top of things but I guess this was an off day. Probably because it was a later in the day flight. Oh well. At least you got there!

    Haven't read a TR in forever...well technically I haven't been on the DIS in some time so I couldn't have. But it is cool to see people my age(I'm 20) doing something spontaneous like this. Getting me kind of excited for my upcoming trips(DCL to Canada, Food and Wine, and for 21 Beers around EPCOT w/ my friends). Definitely subscribing.

    I was freaking out in the airport so scared that he wouldn't make it!!!

    Yay, now the real fun begins WE ARE FINALLY ON OUR WAY :banana:

    REALLY?! You have a trip then?! HOW EXCITING. maybe we will run into one another




    Thanks for reading along :woohoo: and Welcome. Hope you enjoy!!!



    Thank you thank you thank you. I'm so glad you have you aboard. I hope you have fun reading along :thumbsup2




    :banana: I'm glad you are liking it so far!!! When Sam first made it I watched it probably 100 times because I was reliving the trip. I have to admit this was probably the best one I have taken so far.

    I couldn't believe I left him home, he was sitting on my bed all ready to go and everything... ugh I'm so scatter brained.

    It was ok, we really weren't all that mad. We had nowhere to be in a rush. All I can say is THANK GOODNESS when we were booking on a whim we just said let's leave at night instead of the next morning. If it had taken away park time I would have cried lol




    I love finding people's trip reports who are around my age!!! We'll trip reports in general I guess just get me pumped. I'm honored that you decided to read mine after being away from the boards for so long :worship: haha I hope that you enjoy it and it gets you even more excited for your upcoming trips!!!




    We had a fabulous time!!! I love hearing about people who were down there at the same time, maybe you will show up in the background of one of our hundreds of photos!!! That would be so cool :rotfl: Thanks for reading along

    I’m Leaving On a Jet(Blue) Plane
    May 26, 2012

    We boarded the plane at about 9:00. Boy did they get the people off and us on quickly. We all found our seats which weren’t as far apart as we thought they were. Andy and I were both on the isle and he was in the row behind me. Brittany was near the window a row in front of me

    [​IMG]

    Sam was suppose to be across the isle at the window across from Andy but when she went to sit down the family in the other two seats asked her to switch so her son could sit with them. We were a little confused because when we booked our seats were the only three left on the plane (with the exception of the extra space seats) why didn’t the lady just buy that seat to begin with? Oh well whatever Sam was more than happy to switch she ended up on the isle about 5 or more rows a head of the rest of us.

    Literally the turn around for this flight was SO FAST. We sat down and were moving immediately man JetBlue wasn’t fooling around. They gave us the safety spiel and then told us that due to the delay they were going to let us watch the movies for free, I believe that usually they are like $5 cool.

    As we sat down Andy was mad because of course his was the one TV on the flight that wasn’t working. They powered the TVs down for take off and when they started back up his came on so he was excited.

    Now foe those of you who have followed along before you know that Andy is not the #1 fan of flying. I am proud to report that we made it through another take off successfully!!! I was really worried especially because I wasn’t sitting next to him but he was good to go.

    The flight was great a little bumpy but nothing terrible. I watched an episode of How I Met Your Mother but I have basically seen EVER episode so I decided to take them up on their free movies so I started watching The Vow and then they started handing out snacks and beverages. Sprite for me this was the first of many. I really dislike coke (Pepsi all the way) so whenever I go to Disney I am basically on a Sprite/Root Beer (when available)/Water Kick.

    [​IMG]

    We got our snack shortly after and they give you SO MANY CHOICES. Brittany has flown JetBlue before and really talked up the blue chips so that’s what we were all looking forward to trying. I must admit I was a little hesitant at first

    [​IMG]

    But they were GOOD. I want some more mmm mmm mmm.

    Andy made me laugh beucase when Brittany had talked about them he asked “I get that they look blue, but do they taste blue?” haha he is so cute. Andy model your blue chips

    [​IMG]

    I flipped between The Vow and the Map channel watching our plane slowly inch closer to Orlando.

    I turned on my Disney playlist and listen to some of my spine tingling tunes and at 11:00 (when we were suppose to land) my alarm went of telling me to have a wonderful vacation. What a great app

    [​IMG]

    And before long the little plane had made it!!! (You know what that means? DISNEY!!!)

    [​IMG]

    When we landed Andy had been sleeping (he had gotten up at 6am that day to go to work, what a trooper) So when we landed he was a little groggy but still excited

    [​IMG]

    Hey guys how are you doing? That good huh?

    [​IMG]

    YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY. Not sleepy anymore SO HYPER ZO MY GOSH!!!

    [​IMG]

    Skipping down the tunnel

    [​IMG]

    We had no idea where we were going once we got off because we were in a different terminal so we just followed the mob, we figured they must be headed to get their luggage as well… right?

    [​IMG]

    We got off the not monorail (not pictures because I was too excited and it was really dark) Time check?

    [​IMG]

    Not too bad…

    Follow those Mickey ears

    [​IMG]

    We didn’t pass the pretty fountain but we went under this

    [​IMG]

    Luggage claim is no fun. Disney y you no just get my bags? It took a while for the thing to get going but luckily our suitcases were some of the first ones out

    [​IMG]

    I got out my folder so that we could get the magical express passes ready to go

    [​IMG]

    Look Pluto made it to Florida!!! YAY

    [​IMG]

    SCREAMING ON THE INSIDE (well Andy might be yawning)

    [​IMG]

    Party at luggage claim

    [​IMG]

    No one wanted to stand near us, we thought it was because we were dancing and having fun, turns out the bags came out over there haha oh well we can wait

    My suitcase came on first and to insure I didn’t forget him anywhere else I Velcroed him to the handle

    [​IMG]

    Brittany’s luggage was the last out, this would be a reoccurring issue for Brittany she was always having difficulties that would hold us up haha.

    Once we gathered all our pieces we RAN like BOOKED IT to the Magical Express or at least where we though the Magical Express was. We went down the stairs and then the escalator and ran down to the very end but there were no signs. no mickey no nothing. Is this what happens when you arrive at night? Everything is just sad?

    Nope turns out we went to the wrong side. We wandered for what seemed like forever so confused asto how we got lost, we NEVER get lost.

    MAP?!?!

    [​IMG]

    Didn’t help. WHERE’S THE MICKEY BUS?!

    Then it hit us. JetBlue comes from a different terminal we usually go to B straight away but we had to detour to A to get our bags. FINALLY IT ALL MAKES SENSE. Silly JetBlue throwing us off.

    Oh well we were back on target and then we saw this

    [​IMG]

    All the lines were basically closed up so we went through the one we were told to go to and we were outside boarding before I could take any pictures.

    The good news…








    WE HAD A REAL BUS. How glorious, no imposter yellow bus for us this time. YIPPIE this was the clue to us that this would be an AMAZING vacation.

    DISNEY TRANSPORTATION MODE 1 of 6: Magical Express (other wise known as the Happy Bus)

    That’s awesome they gave you free movies on the flight!

    YAY! DISNEY TIME!

    We ALWAYS get lost in MCO. They could make it a little easier trying to find the Magical Express!

    I’m glad you got a real bus! I hate the yellow buses.

    I was so excited because I had never seen a bunch of the movies but then I felt bad because I hard;y got the chance to listen to my Disney music

    We usually do pretty good navigating around MCO we have never gotten lost that I can remember but coming from a different terminal definitely threw us off haha

    I was so excited for a real bus the last three trips have been yellow buses

    I am actually hoping to do another update when I get home from work tonight!!! Keep your eyes peeled

    A Difference Experience on the Magical Express
    May 26, 2012

    After we were whisked outside and aboard one of the most magical busses in the entire world we made our way to the back of the bus. Not a huge deal, it was night and there wasn’t going to be much to see anyways.

    We picked our seats (there weren’t many to choose from) Andy was kind enough to pick me a bed rather than a chair.

    [​IMG]

    Everyone must have been avoiding this seat because it was broken. My options were recline or really recline. Sam and Brittany sat across the isle and back a row.

    [​IMG]

    Look how happy she is to be in Disney!!! Up close and personal

    [​IMG]

    What a happy bus, even at 1 am. I remember waiting a little while we probably got rolling at around 1:15 or 1:20 with prime viewing.

    [​IMG]

    happy happy happy.

    [​IMG]

    The bus filled up rather quickly. I can’t even explain how excited I was to be on a real bus!!! Just look at the magical colors and all the happy people.

    [​IMG]

    The bus driver told us the order of the hotels we would be stopping at first Pop, Coronado Springs, and then the All Stars having been there before I knew we would be the second last stop for the bus.

    Having seen the movie a few times I listened but was distracted by the girl infront of us who was looking up “Disney secrets on her phone” and reading them aloud for her family. Little did she know her chosen secrets weren’t really secret. She kept trying to show up her brother. I had to laugh when she came across some information that she didn’t know…

    “There is a Moroco in Epcot? Oh that must be new, I don’t think that was here when I came with school?”

    Oh boy we were in for a LONG ride.

    So I decided to take some goofy pictures and tune the girl out.

    [​IMG]

    I think the bus was in motion for about 5 or 10 minutes and Andy was out

    [​IMG]

    Those Disney buses, something about them puts him to sleep in no time.

    Hey Sam how’s your YOLO going?

    [​IMG]

    We made it through the magical archway not pictures because of the back of the bus/night issue.

    Note to self: While it’s cool to get in a night early and be able to wake up and go the next morning well rested the whole getting there at night thing kinda sucks.

    We made our way in the dark to

    [​IMG]

    On the way to Coronado Springs we passed

    [​IMG]

    Can’t tell what it says? You don’t know this sign yet? Art of Animation, sorry for the poor quality we were zooming by.

    I sat back and watched the Donald cartoon for a while. I think it’s funny that it is always the same one.

    [​IMG]

    Next stop

    [​IMG]

    It was so beautiful looking at night. On our March trip we went through here during the day and I was dying to get off the bus and look around, I still had that same feeling. Everything just looks so peaceful there. One day, I will stay at all the Disney resorts I’ve got 5 out of the way. I suppose it would be easier if we didn’t fall in love with each of them and want to go back haha.

    And before long we were pulling in to

    [​IMG]

    Disney’s All Star Music for those of you getting sick trying to figure out what it says.

    We booked it off the bus and to the guy handing out luggage there were a pretty good amount of people who were getting off at this stop and I did not want to wait in the line to check in behind them. So Andy grabbed my suitcase and I went in to check us in.

    Welcome to the All Star Music

    DISNEY RESORT 1 of 6: All Star Music (our home away from home for the next few days)

    [​IMG]

    It’s a little Different at night because no one was around and everything was closed and sad.

    [​IMG]

    but at least you can get pictures without a million people in them

    [​IMG]

    While I checked us in Sam watched the kiddie TV which I don’t think was really on but it’s what she does in every resort as soon as she walks in

    [​IMG]

    The lady was so happy with me because I had done online check in and we had tickets. All she had to do was hand over my activities folder and we were out of her hair.

    She gave us the map and we knew we were going to be in one of two sections (The other ones were all preferred) so it was between Broadway and Country Western or as we like to refer to it as “Country Bears”.

    Being the theatre major that I am, or rather was, I requested Broadway near transportation when I did online check in

    Would our requests be met?


    Tune In Next Time!!!

    This is so good! I'm addicted already! :rotfl:
    I think that I read another one of your trip reports, because Andy and Sam are really familiar! I can't wait to see what happens next! :)
