Trip Report A Sweet 16 Weekend! This trip is all about Maddy!

I can’t wait to share our next Disney adventure! This one will start early, as we need to leave for the airport by 2:15 am. Its also special, as Madelyn turns 16 this Sunday.

Both Maddy and Brayden are February babies, so we surprised them for a Disney trip way back in 2011. My have things changed since then.

We will be staying at Coronado for just the second time. We stayed there for Thanksgiving over 10 years ago.

Plan on heading straight to Epcot once we get to the resort tomorrow. We have lunch at Chefs de France for 1. This will be our second time there as well. The hours for the parks have increased since we booked this trip last year. We aren't sure if that's a good or bad thing; however, there really aren't many things that are bad in Disney, right?

Looking forward to sharing our long weekend in what is forecast to be a hot weekend in Florida!

For Brayden’s 16th, we went to Cleveland. I had never been there before that trip. We had a great time.

Just AWESOME...!!!!!!! :joyfull:

I’ve posted about this around here before...
We took our oldest DD (and our other 2 kiddos ;)) to WDW for her Sweet 16 in July of 2007, and we stayed in a family suite at ASMusic. After we were settled in the room, I went down to the main lobby to the concierge desk. I was greeted by and attended to by a wonderful CM named Ashley. I asked if they could leave a few things in our room for her when we came back to take an afternoon break on oldest DD’s special day a few days later, and just put it on our bill. She said don’t worry about that now, we’ll take care if it.
The morning of her Sweet 16 we were at the head of the group at the east tunnel by the train station at MK waiting for rope drop after the welcome show. An elderly CM noticed oldest DD’s birthday button and some extra birthday bling she had on...!!!!! :hilarious: He then proceeded to lead the whole 200-ish Guests behind us in singing happy birthday to her, and It was just awesome...!!!!!!! :joyfull:
Then, when we got back to our room for our afternoon break, we were completely stunned...
There were balloons, a card from Cinderella, some key chains, a t-shirt, a Minnie Mouse plush, half a dozen red roses, and I may be forgetting somethin’ else...!!!!! :hilarious: Not only that, we were told it was all “on the house”... :eek:o_O:cyclops:
She wore her birthday button the whole trip, and received so many CM and even Guest well-wishes, and it was just a Magical trip, all the way around...!!!!! :happy:
I’m not sure how that might all go these days, but, it’s worth a shot...!!! :)

Hope y’all have an awesome trip full of Magical memories...!!! :)
