Following along! I'm flying SW for the first time with my upcoming trip. Nice to see you had a smooth flight!
Oh nice we love Southwest. We did have a string of delays but even with that we still love them! Their customer service is great!

They were so gross! I should be better about posting my dates for this reason :banghead:
And since I'm only on Facebook and not Instagram, I probably miss info if it is given lol. We're considering trying for a long weekend later in the year for the holiday season but I'm not sure if it will come together with us getting ready to put our house on the market and move closer to town and the hubby's job. But I'm hoping it all comes together - and we can find a pet sitter again since the one I used this year is getting married this summer and her fiance is in the Navy so she's probably moving to FL.

Also, R says he loves the title of the trip report. He's a little jealous he didn't think of it LOL.

😁 My Mom actually came up with it (well I added in the love part of it) so I can't take any credit! We are going in November for the Wine and Dine run and then the beginning of December for my sisters birthday. I hope you get to make it down again.

We had one rainy day, but we missed the monsoon left Epcot just in time- been pretty at the beach too, just stray thunderstorms.
Oh that's not too bad then!!

Day 1 continued
We were the third stop on the Magical Express. When we got off of the Magical Express we were greeted by a cast member to check us in since we were saying at Sugar Loaf which is one of the club levels. Believe it or not when I was booking this trip I found this club level room that was cheaper than regular rooms so why not. It definitely made my Dad a bit spoiled, though, as it was his first true Deluxe stay and his first club level. :hilarious::hilarious::hilarious: We had to keep reminding him this is not how it usually is 🤣
Anyway we got all checked in at the Sugar Loaf desk.
I took this picture to keep note of the food times :)

We were still there during breakfast time so we got some food. My Dad actually ate while we were checking in so I don't know what he had but we were there on waffle day (they do not have them everyday) so that is what my Mom had!

She was excited because they had the same real whipped cream and strawberries that 1900 Park Fare has.
I just got some random things - fruit, croissant, cheese, deviled egg. I never had a deviled egg before weirdly but it was really good!
IMG_2809.JPG
After eating we headed to the main lobby to get dressed into warm weather clothes and headed to the monorail towards MK!

Our first stop was Guest Relations to change my Dad's ticket to an Annual Pass. He is coming back in December with us because my whole family is going to Disney for my sister's birthday.

Then we headed in and stopped for a PP picture. I really have no idea why the PP CM did not think to say that my Dad was hiding 🧐 Also I was super annoyed at how wrinkly my jumper was - I wish I had my wrinkle release spray with me :banghead:

I was on a mission after this and it was for a Hei Hei cone.
I really am not sure why I was obsessing over getting this cone for weeks and weeks since the one and only time I had a Dole Whip I did not like it (although the raspberry intrigued me). Well to be fair I gave up sweets for Lent and I follow a fairly strict diet at home so all I dreamed about was food at Disney :hilarious: Funny story - the week before this trip I was doing something called the 3 Day Fix which is a Beachbody diet (the program I use for exercise and eating) that is meant to help you lose water weight (essentially you just eat no salt/sugar at all). I was doing it because I am a Beachbody coach so felt like I should try everything offered so I could help out my team members. Anyway, long story short it was horrible and I felt like my whole body was in shock so I was especially excited for sugar :hilarious::hilarious::hilarious::hilarious:

Anywho, I went to the wrong stand first (it is at Aloha Isle not Sunshine Tree Terrace) but we finally found it!

My Mom got one too!

All 3 of us thought it was really good - a bit sweet but the raspberry part was especially great! I think I may be over my hatred for Dole Whips!
However, it melted suppppperrr fast ----
IMG_2822.JPG
:hilarious::hilarious: Up here in Buffalo you have plenty of time to eat ice cream before it melts 😁
We then took photos with an actual Hei Hei and pretended like it was ice cream 🤪

Our plan was to head to the Peoplemover but when we walked by Buzz we noticed that while the wait was listed at 35 minutes there was no way that was the case since the line was only inside.

We ended up waiting less than 15 minutes - hooray!
I mean....I know I got up early but why does it look like I was sleeping ?! :hilarious::hilarious: Also I see why my jaw hurts so often 🧐🤣

We got stopped around the Tron construction. On our first ride through it did not look like they did much but the more we looked on subsequent rides the more you could see that a lot of the foundation is there.

On our way out of Tomorrowland we stopped for a PP picture.

After HM we sat down for a few minutes. I ended up changing our dinner plans to 3:30 at this point because we were fading a bit fast since we got up so early :)
I like this little skull :)

We'll be arriving that weekend!
Oh yay!! I am not sure of our dates yet but I will have to let you know

Following along! l am looking forward to reading about your trip. I love early morning flights to Disney World!
They are so nice because you get there so early but it does make the first day a bit hard when you are sleepy 😁

I’m following along-We just got back as well and the love bugs were something else but I will take it over the nonstop rain we had on our trip last May.

I agree at least it wasn't raining!

Your pictures on Pirates turned out really good. For some reason mine are always lousy on that ride.
Thanks those were from my one lens on my camera that does decently well in the dark :)
