You didn't think I'd leave out some photos from the trip did ya? I have to admit though, when I uploaded them I realized I really didn't pay much attention to the camera on the trip. I was too busy living in the moment I suppose. I did however watch in AMAZEMENT at how people totally documented their entire trip through a camera, camera phone, video cameras....even on roller coasters. I wonder if once they got home they realized they missed half the trip because they only saw it through a viewfinder. Anyhoo.....Oh Disney....the land of a million wishes.
We stayed on property at the Pop Century Resort. It was a giant playground of giant stuff. Literally. See:
Billy did have to leave early, which was a bummer. The kids and I took advantage of Downtown Disney again with movies and more food. I think we ate our way through the week!! Oh, and the hotel arcade was a huge hit. We had such a wonderful trip overall and are super, super glad we went. 6 days away felt like the blink of an eye. I am very glad we went with no real plan, because we had no expectations to be disappointed about afterwards. We just got up and went. And then crashed...and then got up and did it all over again! But here are a few things from the no plan gang you may want to know if you are planning a trip:
1. All the time you'd normally spend packing cute outfits to wear....don't waste time doing. Seriously pack all your work-out clothes. I am wearing a fashion ekkk....with tennis shoes above but am SO thankful I thought to pack them last minunte. Because Disney is like a giant track. And cute shoes and outfits are not noticed by anyone. Seriously.
2. Back pack must. Another thing we did last minute was dump Mailey's school pack and take it along. Everyday I packed snacks and water bottles we refilled. Because peeps, water is $2.50 a bottle. And I didn't see that many healthy snack options along the way. (Although my hubby ate I think 2 Mickey Ice Cream sandwhiches a day!! Mr. Healthy eater cracked me up!!)
3. Upon entering the park decide right then the most important rides and run to get a fast pass. And then wander and enjoy other things. We missed out on the Soarin' ride because we didn't get the fast pass soon enough. And guys a 210 minute wait is just stupid. Yes, that is 210 minutes I said. That would be a 2.5 hour wait for a ride. Luckily my kids were rolling with the punches too so any ride too long or fast passes not available said, oh well. Next time.
I've got a trillion things on the to-do list this week. Mailey and I head to Virgina Beach Thursday for Art and Soul. Woohoooo!! I'll be back with some shorter posts later this week.
