The MURPHYS are LIVE from the Polynesian!! 7/27-8/3 Come join the fun!!! :)

The Murphy's are LIVE from
Disney's Polynesian Resort
July 27 - August 3









Hello again DISfamily!!!! I can't believe I'm back again so soon with another live trip report!!!! We never go to WDW twice in the same summer, heck we rarely even go to WDW in the summer at all!! But it just worked out that way this year and I can't say I'm upset about it. I hope you guys will have fun coming along with our family once again! Through the good times and the stressful times we always have people cheering for us and supporting us on our adventure! And that's one thing WDW will always be, no matter how many times you go, it's an ADVENTURE!

Ok, so here are the plans: 7 nights Poly CL GV, 4 annual passes, flying down on Southwest, taking ME, no dining plan but ADRs are booked for Chef Mickey's, Ohana, Teppen Edo, Narcoosee's, Biergarten, Whispering Canyon, and Be Our Guest. Chef Mickey's is already on the chopping block this morning because I just realized with a 6:00 AM flight an 8:30 PM dinner is probably not going to work. We will have to wake the kids around 4:00 AM, so dinner might have to be around 3:00 in the afternoon!

If this is your first time traveling with us, WELCOME!

I am more than happy to answer any questions you might have, so please feel free to ask anything.

I will also be live tweeting from the parks @Erika_Murphy as well as updating my Pinterest boards. (see my signature below)

UPDATE!!!!!!!!! I forgot to mention August 2nd is our oldest son Nicholas' 14th birthday!!!!!! So this is a special birthday trip for him!!!!!!!!

Packing is in full swing here! We will leave Friday (7/26) to sleep at the airport, our home is about an hour away so this will save us time getting to our early Saturday morning flight. Even doing this we will still have to wake up in the dark So the first stop at WDW might be the new Starbucks! LOL

Is everyone excited???????????? WOOHOOO!!!!

I sure hope not! If they told us no more rooms in Hawaii I think I would have a heart attack!

So when you say sleeping at the airport...do you mean sleeping in the terminal or at a hotel near the airport or in you car at the airport?
