Trip Report November 2016 – Day 4

Day 4 started out with a morning in Hollywood Studios.  Fearing a re-imagineering of the Great Movie Ride, it was a high priority for this trip.  “Lasts” have become a common theme for our recent trips, but thankfully “firsts” have started to fill in some of those gaps. We also saw Voyage of the Little…

Trip Report November 2016 – Day 3

Day 3 started with a morning and afternoon outside the parks, then Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party that night! We started the morning with two adults ending up standing outside their room door with no Magic Bands.  I knew the Club desk could make a new room key, so one of us ran up to…

Trip Report November 2016 – Day 2

Our first day in the parks was one I worked hard to prepare for.  On paper it was just a morning in Epcot with a lunch at Garden Grill.  In practice it was the shining glory of a chipmunk toddler. Since the Garden Rooms at the Boardwalk are not located near the Innkeepers Club Lounge…

Trip Report November 2016 – Day 1

Our November 2016 trip was somewhat an accident.  It started out as a long weekend trip after Thanksgiving so we could see some of the new experiences that opened since our January 2016 trip.  The trip slowly grew, then a month and half out had to be moved completely.  Suddenly it was a week-long trip…

Trip Report January 2016 – Day 8

Our last day was easy and relaxed.  We had no park tickets which is a new rule we’ve implemented to prevent the crazy last days we usually have.  We’ve considering doing this for years, but having a baby to tote really pushed us to implement the rule. We called Bell Services to our room at…

Trip Report January 2016 – Day 7

After years upon years of stressful last days we finally got smart and did not buy park tickets for our check-out day.  That meant that day 7 would be our last day in the parks and we had a long list of things we wanted to do again or missed the chance to do earlier.…

Trip Report January 2016 – Day 6

Day 6 of our January vacation started exactly the way Day 5 ended – rainy.  Since we accomplished so much at Extra Magic Hours, we planned a sleep-in morning.  That’s not always possible with a baby, but we tried! We left our room at Bay Lake Tower at 9:50, and by 10:18 were in the…

Trip Report January 2016 – Day 4

Day 4 of our January 2016 trip started in Animal Kingdom.  We had an easy drive of less than 15 minutes and were in one of the first few rows of parking.  It took about 20 minutes from parking to entering the Kilimanjaro Safari Fastpass line.  We had an excellent crisp early morning safari with…

Trip Report January 2016 – Day 3

Dreams do come true.  Day 3 in Hollywood Studios brought us back to our favorite ride, the Tower of Terror.  I haven’t ridden it since March 2014, which is far too long.  But I’m jumping ahead… This morning was the most on time we’ve been in years.  In 17 minutes we drove from the Grand…

Trip Report January 2016 – Day 2

Day 2 of our January 2016 trip started like 95% of our vacation days do – late.  It was my resolution for this trip that we would be at the parks as close to park opening as possible.  We have a night owl baby, which means we have to wake him up to accomplish this.…
