The MURPHYS are LIVE at WDW 10/31-11/4 F&W, MNSSHP, and IOA/WWoHP!!

LIVE Trip Report!!
Epcot's Food & Wine Festival, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party,
Magic Bands
, FP+, Quick Service DP,
Islands of Adventure, Wizarding World of Harry Potter, MineCon 2013,
WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!



Hey DIS friends! Another LIVE report coming your way TOMORROW that is sure to be the most insane one in the history of live reports! The kids and I are heading down to Orlando for a completely packed 5 days of fun! The thought of how we will cram it all in without going completely off the deep end is making my head spin!!!

I will be updating this thread with live photos and reports starting tomorrow and running through Monday afternoon, so check back often! Also if you aren't already following me on Twitter I highly recommend it for even MORE updates and pics in real time! www.twitter.com/Erika_Murphy I'm excited to have you guys along for the ride!

The plan in a nutshell... WDW, F&W, MNSSHP, IOA, WWoHP, and MineCon 2013! We are staying at Pop Century with the quick service dining plan and Magic Bands!!! Already have our FP+ times picked out and ready to go! After that then we are moving over to the Hilton Orlando at the Convention Center for MineCon 2013 (MineCraft Convention) which includes a private event night at Islands of Adventure just for the convention peeps! We will also be driving back and forth to WDW Sunday night and Monday for more Disney fun wherever we can cram it in! Priorities, right???

Here are our bands:



If you haven't heard of MineCraft just ask any boy between the age of 6 and 26 and you'll find out it's one of the biggest video games around. My boys are so excited they can barely sleep, all I know is it has something to do with a guy named Captain Sparklez

We arrive in Orlando tomorrow afternoon, we will pick up our rental car and head to Pop, hopefully our room is ready so we can immediately hit Epcot and make our FP+ times for Soarin' and Test Track! Afterwards the boys want to hop a bus to Disney Quest since free passes came with our package, as long as we aren't falling asleep before we can get there. Friday we plan to hit MK and possibly the Studios if we have time. MNSSHP that night! Then Saturday morning early we head to MineCon, IOA that night, MineCon again on Sunday until 5:00 PM then back to WDW. Annual passes are coming in handy right now that's for sure!

Can't wait to share our adventure with you guys!!!!

Second Star to the Right and Straight on til Morning Captain!!



Ok, ok, I couldn't resist a shameless plug for OUAT and my friend the Captain

I don't normally follow along on trip reports (although, I admit I have lurked on a few of your previous ones), but I'm REALLY curious about MineCon. My 10 year old will definitely want to see/read about that. Safe travels and hope you have a great time!

I'm sure it's going to be great fun! The boys received their "capes" today through email and are proudly strutting around every server showing them off. LOL :D
