Continuing...so DS1 picks us up.. we head to the WBC there by 8:00 am. A line already. WHAT. OK. drop off luggage. Check in. Go back to the Beach Club to meet the rest of the family and FINALLY head to MK.
We get there by 9:10. First FP
9:30-10:30 for The little Mermaid. No problem I say. We will breeze through. Ummm not..

DS1 and DIL and the kids magic bands did not work...even though we linked them before leaving home. Are you kidding me.

    So here we are. ....so close ..yet so far...
    Before I continue I forgot to say how when we got to the front how excited I was that there were still Christmas decorations..I thought I would never get the opportunity to see it all decked out....
    Was it just the front...or are there more still inside???

    At this point I am practically running to get in...and like I said....nope...off to guess services my DS1 and his family go. 5 magic bands not working.

    The line for Guest services was long....now another dilemma (one of many this week)...do we go into Main Street or wait....well DS1 said to go in...to at least make the first FP,without them...we went in ..and this is what we saw....yeah...more Christmas decorations...I am so excited..



    image.jpeg
    Being January 12th..I didn't think they would still be up...

    Well we decided to wait for them..."mother's guilt ". How could we do our very first attraction without them...

    By this time FP window gone..but we had another one in an hour for Buzz Lite Year...
    They finally come through...now DS1 has been before for the holiday decorations and wasn't to thrilled they were still up..and the Christmas music he thought should have been off..

    But we did get some "Pixie Dust". GS gave a FP for our group since we missed our FP window...so that was a big help.
    Now we felt we didn't have to rush as much...time to take in the magic

    Having a hard time with posting pics. I either have to do them each separately or the bunch together. Out of order
    On to Buzz. So fun.
    Next up 7DMT. Hmmm not so sure about this ..

    Did I go???


    Right after Buzz DS1 snagged a FP for Small World. We went to lunch at Pinocchio Village House. Again no pic. I guess ok. For quick service.

    Then 7

Forgot how funny it is . Maybe the fact the DS2 got on the screens made it funnier. (Wish I had a pic of that)

    Day 2. Animal Kingdom day. Well 1/2 a day. The New England Patriots are in the playoffs so we went back to the BC to watch the game. And it turned out to be the best day weather wise. The kids one and only pool day.

    I as per usual got up early. And had to wait for DS2 and family to get going. We booked an Uber (finally) wanted to get to AK before 9:00. Well not happening.
    The traffic because of the Marathon was crazy..took over 45 minutes to get there. Ugh. People.....we only have 1/2 a day. Move it.

    Well still not doing a good job on the pic posting They are backwards out of order.

    I'm really sorry to hear about you're DH, what a bummer. At least you have a big, beautiful family to share the experience with! Looks like you all had a wonderful time!

    Thank you. We did. It was sad at times. And I worried about him like crazy. But my 5 grandkids were so happy. It made the trip worth while

    D5ECA5FE-4CEE-42D8-A215-9BCBA21A7B79.jpeg Monday...Hollywood Studios Day. As per usual I am up bright an early...and of course waiting again. It was a chilly morning for Florida..being from the Boston area..it was balmy.
    I went for a walk around the WBC
    It really is a nice place. Would definitely stay again.

    Finally I get the text. Uber ordered ..so off we go

    Me and my GS#1 Jackson

    Ok ...time to do Slinky Dog Dash. As I said before...I am not a fan of roller coasters or for that matter. Anything. High. Fast ect.





    D5ECA5FE-4CEE-42D8-A215-9BCBA21A7B79.jpeg
    GD#1 loved it

    After the trauma (I mean the fun) of slinky dog dash. I needed a break. And something tame.

    We went to the Disney Junior dance party.. the kids really liked it. Then off to see March of the order and the Star Wars galactic spectacular show.

    I took pics of both and now can’t seem to find them.

    We would be fans...but none of us are. ( I know...gasp)...not everyone is into Star Wars....that being said...we loved the show..well all except GD2...
