Welcome to the next installment of the trip report.

Disneytopia LIVE! October 2013


Thanks for reading along. If you want to go back to the LIVE trip report from 2012, it starts on page 1. There are previous trip reports linked there as well. I thought this might be a cool way to just starting putting all my trip reports here going forward.

I just read your TR and I really enjoyed it!! Your girls are adorable and it is so nice to see pictures of WDW during the times I can never get there. I am a teacher, so the fall is a "no-go" time for me. I am, however, leaving in 13 days to spend New Year's with the mouse (talk about a busy time...yikes!) staying at AKL. (Parents just bought DVC, so they are treating us to a 2 bdrm villa!)

BTW - do they do the Welcome Home Wednesdays thing at Epcot every week??

I really want to try to write a TR now!! I am not veteran that you are, but I think it would be fun!

Thanks for a great read!

I am glad you enjoyed it. We've been to AKV and it is a great resort, so have a great trip. If we didn't have a Fall Break, then we couldn't go in October. We have never done the 2 BR, but have enjoyed the 1 BR space. They do the WHW at the Boardwalk every Wednesday, at the Atlantic City Music Hall at 2:00 PM. Writing the TR is just another way to have more fun and enjoy the memories. You'll do great at it.

T-5 hours. Packing and loading the truck now. For my birthday present, FIL loaned us his 2011 GMC Sierra 1/2 ton crew cab AND gave us his credit card for gas. An excellent present. Wave if you see us on the road later today.

Okahumpka service plaza. Less than 50 miles away. This is the first stop off Florida Turnpike from I-75. I think our original visit was the oldest dd was carsick. Now, it's a part of our routine - dunkin donuts first breakfast.

Oldest steering the boat outside of Olivia's at OKW. The boat is sure to sink. We have a morning breakfast here in about 15 minutes. Enjoying the sunrise at OKW.

Yes, just when you thought it was safe to return to your threads, this one rears its ugly head.

Let me know if you want to try and get a meet in. A 30 second encounter will make you infamous on my trip report. And, you know that infamous is way better than just plain old regular famous.
