Our very magical, very first trip to Disney World

We just got back from our first trip to Disney World!!! What a wonderful time we had!! It was everything that I hoped it would be and more We are already planning to go back in September, 2010!!!!

If you would like to check out my pre trip report, you can see who we all are and what fun we had preparing and planning for our first trip! If not, you will meet us here through pics anyway.

I am Pam, my dh is Manny, and there is my 12 yr old stepson, Anthony, and mine and Manny's daughters, Emily, 9, Lizzie, 7, and Samantha 5!!!!!

We were in Disney from May 12-19th and we had two preferred rooms at the All Star movies. We requested the Toy Story building and got it, we love Toy Story!!

We were on the Quick Service Dining Plan and loved every minute of it. There was so much food, sometimes we would look at each other like "oh my god, we have to eat again" We had 36 snack credits and 7 meals left the day we checked out, luckily we didn't leave until 5:45pm, so we tried to use up as much as we could of them!!! We still left with 1 meal and 16 snacks left over, we could not bear to even grab any more to go It was great, it included 2 meals a day for each person, 2 snack credits a day for each person and a refillable mug for each person. LOVED the mugs!!!!!!!!

So let's start off on May 11th. It was a very busy day making sure everything was in the suitcases and everything was bought. It took me until like 5pm to finally find our misting fans but my Dad ended up finding them. When everything was finally triple checked and we were all set and ready to go to bed I gave the kids their Autograph books that I made them and the pins and lanyards that I bought! They were surprised and very excited.



Here we are just getting ready on May 12th, we are all sleepy and ready to go!! Below are the pics of the kids looking out the porch window when the Limo was pulling up. This was a surprise, they did not know about the Limo, they thought Grampy was bringing us to the airport!

















The kids loved the Limo ride, they were so excited the whole time. It was about a 20 minute ride to the airport!!!

I'll continue in a new post, not sure how long they are able to get?

We arrived at the airport and went to the Southwest terminal to check our bags and get a boarding pass for Anthony, because when I checked in online his did not print. For anyone that followed my PTR, you know this because I was very upset and in a panic. It all went smooth, he did get a C boarding pass, but they said that was no problem at all, he could just get on with us in A!!! They were very friendly and nice!!!! We arrived about an hour before the terminal was even open, but we wanted to be early and prepared. We were!!!! The kids just had fun waiting!!



Here we are waiting for the plane, we went to get some drinks and pastries for breakfast.





"What's that, is that our plane"







Southwest airplane cookies that they gave out



The plane ride went smooth, Emily, Sam, and Anthony's ears hurt, but not too severe. (That would be on the ride home)

And we arrive at the Orlando International airport



Waiting for the Tram





Yay, we are finaly on the Magical express. We did not even have a wait, we walked right up and got right on the bus.







WE ARE IN DISNEY WORLD



Continued in next post!!!!!!

Oh, we were in Heaven when we got off the bus and walked down the red carpet and into the lobby. Oh, it was awesome. Manny took the kids and went to sit down and watch TV, the kids thought the TV with the chairs out was great. Lizzie stuck with me to check in. My little buddy.



We checked in online a few days before. Would that save time? Would that mean our rooms would be ready when we checked in at 10:30 am?








Oh yes, our rooms were ready and we were in them by 11:00am I was thrilled, I so wanted to put these bags down and change into some shorts and tank tops, as it was 90 degrees.





So we checked out the room and changed up and went to the food court for our first Disney Luch.









After lunch we went to check out our area, we were right by the Buzz and Woody

So we went back up to our rooms and changed into our bathing suits, it was time for our first swim of the week. We left 50 degrees and were dropped into 90, that pool was callling us!!!















And then we went back into the "big Mickey pool" for a little while longer and that is where I will leave you for now.

I know my dis friends have been waiting for my updates, so I didn't want to make you wait until tomorrow, had to get this in before I go to work Back to reality!!

On this first night we went to the Magic kingdom, so stay tuned!!!!

Looks great a great arrival to WDW. How did the Online Check-IN go. Was it a long line? Did you get your connecting rooms? I'm still nervous about trying it in June.

PS - I think your count-down timer is broken.

I loved the look on your kids faces when they saw the limo.....I am so glade check in with southwest went ok, online checking was good to you AND your rooms were ready....you guys were on a roll....pixie dust was all around you....you just gotta love it.....

I hope all your memories of your trip help you make it through your shift tonight.....just think the planning starts all over again.....and that is always fun and stressful at times but fun O and it's fun and a more fun

One of the things my family does ( great idea I got from one of fellow Diser MeMom trip report) is to plan small family dinners with a Disney theme.....One night we did a MK theme so we had "mom's" Casy's hotdogs with all the sides and I tried to make my own version of a dole whip, and freshed baked cookie and ice cream sandwhiches.....put on your favorite Disney movie and/or break out the Disney photos and have fun planning for future trips.....brings back a little magic everytime.

The possibilities are endless.....I think I may try Earl of Sandwich next....
