Red face Operation Classy Living: GFLO Oct 2012 UPDATED 2/20 & Trip Video! COMPLETE

Operation Classy Living: GFLO Oct 2012


Welcome my friends, to the most spirited season of them all
I am your host, your ghost-host
The nine-hundred-ninety-nine happy haunts and I are ready to materialize
For a spooktacular celebration
You never know who will drop in
After all, this is Halloween!


The yolo-ers are back and taking over disney!


The whos:

Sam

Hello there! I’m Sam and I will be your tour guide on this ever so classy trip report.
I’m 20 going on 5 and a complete Disney nerd.
I’m a childhood education major who dreams of working at Bibbidi Bobbiddi Boutique.
When I’m not in Disney I am planning disney trips.

Favorite Theme Park: Magic Kingdom
Favorite Meal of the Trip: Le Cellier
Favorite Snack of the Trip: School Bread
Favorite Ride: Space Mountain
Favorite Disney Characters: Tiana/woody


Brittany



She shares the same love for Disney.
We pretty much live the same life 20 years old, childhood education major, dancer, and believes in the magic of Disney.
This is our second trip to the world together and definitely not the last!

Favorite Theme Park: Magic Kingdom
Favorite Meal of the Trip: Ohana
Favorite Snack of the Trip: Cinnamon roll
Favorite Ride: tour of terror
Favorite Disney Characters: Belle


Alicia



This trip is brought to you by her, there would have been no operation classy living without her.
She is currently a cast member working in the costume shop at the magic kingdom.
Its always a good time when Alicia is around!

Favorite Theme Park: MGM
Favorite Meal of the Trip: San Angel Inn
Favorite Snacks of the Trip: Mickey Premium Bar
Favorite Ride: Tower of Terror
Favorite Disney Characters: Rapunzel/Pluto/Minnie Mouse


Andy



Andy is alicia’s fiancé and has been forced into the Disney scene.
He decided to join us on this trip after our yolo trip in May.
After being away from Alicia for 2 months is was a nice little reunion for both of them.

Favorite Meal of the Trip: Peco’s Bills
Favorite Snack of the Trip: Popcorn
Favorite Ride: Toy Story Mania
Favorite Disney Characters: Donald Duck

Chelsea



She goes to school with me and Brittany.
She has been to Disney a few times with her family but not a hardcore fan like the rest of us.
She was all for going on this trip and it was definitely an experience with her!

Favorite Theme Park: Magic Kingdom
Favorite Meal of the Trip: Liberty Tree Tavern
Favorite Snack of the Trip: Mickey Premium Bar
Favorite Ride: Splash Mountain
Favorite Disney Characters: Cannot decide


When: October 3 – October 8

Where: Disney world! Staying at the classiest resort on property the Gflo aka Grand Floridian



Why: This trip was planned in September 2011. It started when Alicia asked me to do the dcp with her.
I talked Brittany into doing it and went to the dcp meeting at Niagara University.
Sadly because our tight school schedule we were unable to apply for Fall 2012.
So instead we planned a trip to visit Alicia and go to Mickey’s not so scary Halloween party!
And will have to wait till Fall 2014 to do the dcp.

The day before consisted of going to classes to get an education and let me tell you my mind was not up for learning. It was all for thinking about Disney!

When I got home I was running around like a mad person making sure I had everything I needed. Once I finished packing I did my nails festive while I waited for Brittany to come over.



Brittany arrived around 9pm with her big suitcase that could hold enough for a family of four. That being said it was over weight and being a nice friend I put some of her stuff in my suitcase.



Andy arrived shortly after but staid in the back room and called it a night. While waiting for Chelsea to arrive Brittany decided to try on her halloween costume.





After all the fun and excitement over the halloween costume we decided to get down to business and made a scavenger hunt we could do when we were down there. Lets just say it didn't work all that well!

Chelsea ended up arriving at around 11pm. We got settled down and called it a night.



I was way to excited to sleep, DISNEY WORLD tomorrow! Brittany and me ended up talking till the wee hours of the morning, which was probably not a good idea since we had to be up bright and early.



DISNEY TOMORROW MORNING! 3:45am comes early!

Yeah!!! Looking forward to following along.

We had the honor of meeting Alicia and having dinner with her one evening last month while we were at WDW. Can't wait to read your trip report after having followed along with Alicia's tweets during the recent adventure.

Thanks for following along!
She told me all about your dinner together, how nice your were, and how good the food was. I told her to actually write this trip report but she said she was to busy, so hopefully I can do this somewhat as good as her
