"Babe, I Messed My Pants..." An Oct 2013 TR -Update 4/13!!

"Welcome, my friends, to the most spirited season of them all...."

Well helllooooo!

Thank you SO much for stopping by!

Before I start forgetting the details of our AMAZING trip to WDW....


Although fair warning, I completely DID NOT take notes for two whole days on this trip...I have no idea why...

But probably because I didn't take notes....

Brief intros:

Me:



I'm Ali (or Alison...or Al...I respond to all of them) - and yes, I'll be 31 years old this December and yes I bought a Duffy on this trip.

And several outfits for him.

Don't judge me.


I was accompanied on this journey by my BF of 10 years, Lumar:



Our trip began on October 13 and unfortunately came to an end on October 25 I remember getting there that first day, and thinking "we still have the ENTIRE trip ahead of us..." and now, we've been home for a full week!

So now I'm going to eat dinner and then I'll be back (hopefully tomorrow!) with an actual update!


Thanks again for stopping by!

We were NOT Duffy fans when he first started popping up in the parks but now we love him!

And I don't know what you're talking about!

I swear I'm doing an update TONIGHT! Our apartment is a mess since we got home and partly because I literally haven't even finished unpacking our suitcases! I can't wait to get started because this trip was so awesome!!! If only this pesky job wasn't in the way!

it's not as horrible as it sounds but the circumstances surrounding it were so funny that I had to use that as my TR title! Thanks so much for tagging along! We had great weather, didn't we!?

Chapter 1

"What's your favorite line from a Disney movie?"

Our "Leave For Disney Weekend" was actually quite busy. Both of us had to work Friday, and on Saturday, we spent the day in NYC at New York Comic Con. We had a blast in NYC but we were EXHAUSTED by the time we got home on Saturday night!

I finished our last minute packing and finally went to sleep...only to wake up 3 hours later.

We left our house for the airport at 5:30am on Sunday morning, drive about 15 minutes....

And turned around and drove all the way back home.

Why? Because I plugged in my camera battery to charge overnight and forgot to grab it on our way out!

Half an hour later, we were actually on our way to the airport! We dropped off the car, hopped on the shuttle, and arrived at the airport at 7am.

The JetBlue line had a crazy amount of people in it and our flight was scheduled to leave at 8am! I had done online check in but I needed to print our boarding passes and we had one suitcase to check, so we had to stand in the line. We finally got that settled and made it through security, then headed down to our gate. We got there just as they started boarding our flight!

We left right on time and although I had intended to sleep on the flight, I got sucked into a Criminal Minds marathon instead.

We landed, disembarked, and ran through the terminal so that I could get something to eat before I went on a circus elephant style rampage.

I am NOT a nice person when I'm hungry.

So at 11:30am I was sitting down to breakfast:



Yes, I love Panda Express!


(orange chicken, honey walnut shrimp, and white rice)

Lumar had Quiznos. I thought I took a picture but apparently I was much too busy stuffing my face to care that much about his sandwich.

After we ate, we took the Fake-O-Rail to the B side. I was pleasantly surprised to find that we could use our MagicBands to check in for DME! Didn't know that before we got there!

So we get in line and there's seriously like 2 couples in front of us. The line was NOT long, which meant that a bus had probably just left not long before. But we knew another would be along shortly so we just waited, excited to be in Florida and on our way to DISNEY WORLD!

Well, the guy in front of us starts IMMEDIATELY with the complaining! "I can't believe you have to wait this long," "this is ridiculous, Carnival Cruises wasn't like this," "are they kidding me with this?" On and on and on and on.

For the entire 10 minutes we had to wait. TEN MINUTES. I felt like asking him if he'd ever actually BEEN to Disney before, and if he had any idea what he was in for as far as waiting in lines was concerned. But I kept my mouth shut, and turned around to talk to Lumar about something completely mindless just to give me something to do other than focus on Mr. GrumpyPants.

Our bus arrived and we found some seats.



And Lumar and I promised each other right then and there that if any point during this trip, one of us started acting like an old fart, we had to call each other out on it. No acting like an old fart in Disney World!

After a not so long drive, we were finally home!

For the next four nights anyway!









We checked in, and the CM was super nice. She saw on our reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary (together for 10 years!) so she gave us Happy Anniversary buttons, and directed us to our room.

I was so excited to finally be staying at my DREAM resort!







I need these tiles for my own kitchen some day:



Continued in next post!
