Diane's trip report day 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 & 8(going home)

Trip report day 1:
We got up at 4:30 a.m. and were only 10 minutes late leaving for the airport. I’m told it was my fault. Oh well, we had a VERY short line at security so no problem. Our flight even left a few minutes early and with a strong tail wind, we arrived in Orlando nearly 30 minutes ahead of schedule!

Since we only had one small carry on bag with our clothes, and a computer bag for each of us plus my oxygen machine, we were able to walk right from the gate and down to the National car rental Emerald Aisle. (thanks to Owner’s Locker)

We checked in at OKW and learned we were indeed going to be in our preferred area of 45/46, so we parked our car down there after picking up our very HEAVY Owner’s locker and headed to the Studios. We were inside the park and headed for Toy Story Mania by 12:30! The board outside TSMM said the wait was 60 minutes, but in fact the line only took 35. That is the shortest time we have ever waited at that attraction! We laughed at how close our scores were. Dick had 130,000 and I had 130,400. I usually beat him by more than that! Oh well, it’s only the first game of the trip, so we will improve with practice.

After leaving TSMM we went through the animation studio and did our first drawing of this trip….BOLT was the subject. After finishing our drawings it was around 2, so we called to find our room was indeed ready and we were assigned 4621. On arriving back at OKW and building 46, we discovered it was the exact same unit we had in January! How unusual is that??? We LOVE this location…great view and it’s very quiet. …Well except for the happy birds in the morning, but that’s one kind of noise I enjoy.

After getting our “stuff” put away, we headed over to the grocery store and then made our way to Wilderness Lodge for our dinner reservation at Artist Point. Dinner was wonderful as usual, and after a fantastic dessert of chocolate mouse, we headed over to Epcot to meet up with John at his Owner’s Locker meet in France. John is a great host, and we saw a lot of DIS/DVC folks whom we hadn’t seen for several years. After Illuminations, we headed back to OKW and fell into bed!!

Today is another day, and we aren’t even sure where we will go today. We thought maybe back to the studios and possibly AK later in the day. Who knows…we might just take the first bus that comes along! So much for trip planning. I like these relaxed schedules!

Hey Dianne, glad things are working out so well with your trip so far. Can't wait to read more. It will bring back great memories of our stay at OKW last summer and get us ready for our upcoming trip back to The World.

Keep following that stress free plan you made and have a great time!

Marvin

Diane, you're making me homesick! This Jun it's BWV for the most part but I did manage to get my waitlist for our 1st night of vacation at OKW.

Enjoy yourselves, while we live vicariously through your trip report until we can get there!
