JAM-BOW! Here’s your ribbon. #Twinning around the World – June 2014 UPDATED 7/19&7/20

JAM-BOW! Here’s your ribbon. #Twinning around the World – June 2014

JAMBO EVERYONE!

Princess Megan here welcoming you to my 3rd Trip Report on the Dis! I'm so happy you could join me! Hello to all my readers, new and old!

For my new readers, allow me to introduce myself (and my twin).



I am Megan. You can call me that or Meg or Princess.

And my twin, Megan. You can call her Meg or Meg Meg.

We live the #dislife and we live it hard.

This trip was sporadically planned within 24 hours of returning home from my January 2014 trip. We both had Post Disney/Meg Depression; there is no better cure for PDD than another trip to look forward to! And what better excuse to go to Walt Disney World than to celebrate your friend's birthday with her!

My lucky number is 13 and it was so fitting that this was my 13th trip to Walt Disney World because it was without a doubt, my favorite trip.

The trip took place from June 14, 2014 - June 18, 2014.
We stayed at the Villas at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - Jambo House with a savanna view.

I took a break from my #runlife and got to spend 5 absolutely amazing days with my twin for her (belated) birthday in our most favorite place on earth, sweating our butts off.

I can't wait to share our insanely, ridiculous adventure with you!
Here we go!

Please stand clear of the door, por favor, mantengase alejado de las puertas.

Cast Introductions

Me

Megan/Meg/Princess/Twin/Meg 1



The running princess. I am a baker, runner, photographer, fashionista, leopard print loving, Disney girl, #teambreadpudding, Princess. I am 24 years old (but more accurately 2 + 4 = 6). I will always be a kid at heart.

I am fortunate enough to be a Disney Vacation Club member with a home resort of the beautiful Old Key West. I live-eat-sleep-breathe-run Disney. Walt Disney World is my happy place. I am a different person when I am there.

Some of my favorite Disney things and things about Disney include Stitch, Tangled, the Monorail, Mickey shaped foods (and Disney food while we're at it), Princesses, Winnie the Pooh, alllll the incredible details and distinctive themes of each resort, Epcot, Mickey balloons, Flynn Rider, Disney background music, amazing Disney smells, the lantern scene. My favorite Princesses are Rapunzel, Mulan, Jasmine and Elsa. I am constantly in training for a runDisney race.

I will be posting my tweets from my trip. Anytime you see this @meghill132, it was a tweet from me.



Meg Meg

Megan/Meg/Meg Meg/Twin/Very Meg/Meg 2



My right hand DisFreak, my best friend, my twin, my other half, the Anna to my Elsa.
She enjoys music, cooking, guitar (LOL), photography, food, and DISNEY. She is a Flordian, Annual Pass holder, Disnerd, photographer, #teambreadpudding, Future CM, DisExpert, Chippie lover, sarcastic, wicked awesome person. We met online back in 2012 and our friendship just grew from there, and I honestly don't know what I would do without her.

Meg just celebrated a birthday and THAT IS WHY THIS TRIP HAPPENED!

Meg loves Disney details, Mary Blair anything, Animal Kingdom, Disney food, The Haunted Mansion, Mickey balloons, TNBC, um pretty much everything..let's be real now. She does not like the tram though. Her favorite Princesses are Snow, Belle, and Rapunzel.

I will also be posting my tweets from the twin from the trip. Anytime you see this @lifedis, it was a tweet from Meg Meg.



Mum/Mum Mum/Melissa

Meg's mom, who I will refer to as mum for the duration of this trip report.

Tripod baby sitter, I4 race car driver.


We love to #liveitup and live that #dislife

Pre Trip Report

It's casual

January 19, 2014

As I was in my room unpacking from my incredible trip (trying hard to fight that PDD) my twin texted me asking me when I would get more vacation time at work. I told her that we have X amount of weeks and can use it pretty much however if no one else is out. So she decided that it would be easier to just have mum call me to discuss their idea. Within 2 minutes my phone rang. Mum told me that for her birthday, the only thing she wanted was me to come down and celebrate with them.

Cue da tears.

Mum offered to fly me down for a long weekend sometime close to Meg’s birthday. Economically, it wouldn’t be anything expensive; 2 or 3 nights at AKL, the other nights at casa de Meg Meg and 2 or 3 ADR’s. We talked about the finances to make this happen, I told her that I could work some magic and figure out the rest...getting me there was the biggest issue.

We talked about which weekend would be best. Since Meg’s birthday is May 22nd they were first thinking about the weekend of May 31st, but that would not work well with the flow of work for my position. Then we thought about the following weekend, June 7th. That time still doesn’t work so well for me at work. Mum and Meg were pretty flexible. The most ideal weekend was June 14th. It would either be 4 or 5 days depending on how many days I could take off.

February – May 2014

As soon as I asked for the days, it would be official and the flight would be booked.

Normally, I would CHOP CHOP on this when there are things to be booked and such. But since I just got back from vacation, I felt funny asking for vacation days. In the meantime, Meg and I made interim countdowns on our phones and the Dis. We didn’t want to jinx it even though it was like 99% sure.

Eventually, I requested the days off.
Wish granted, and OMG I’M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD. AGAIN!!!

Never would I have imagined that I would be going to Walt Disney World twice in one year!



You know what I loved about planning this trip?
The lack of planning.

Everything about it was so casual. No strategizing, no texting between multiple people making sure a particular ADR was ok for everyone. That is how us #dislife folk roll. It’s no big deal.

Meg made the 3 ADR’s, and after consulting with me, eventually added another one (that was a necessity) in there because WHY NOT?

And a life goal was accomplished for me.

DVC just so happened to be offering a promotion from February through April; you can buy the Premium Annual Pass for the price of the Annual Pass at the DVC discounted rate. Um. Yes. Please. It’s been a dream of mine to own an AP, even if just for one year and it looks like my dream would be coming true since I would be/will be returning to the world more than once in a year.

Joining in on your "spontaneous" adventure Meg. There really is a big difference from doing Disney with people who like it and people who live it.

HUGE difference! I much enjoyed traveling with a small travel instead of a large entourage too
