Enjoying your TR so far. Looking forward to the rest.
So much fun! I read quite a few of your solo adventure reports before this tripLooks like a fun adventure!
More to come!!So much fun already!
Thank you for joining!Loved your first report and I’m excited to be reading this one!
If I had been for a longer trip, I probably would have headed out as wellFollowing along! I was at HS that same day, but left before the rain even started. ToT, RnR, and slinky were all down at the same time at one point. With the storms rolling in it seemed like a great time to leave! Glad you had fun! Looking forward to seeing the rest of your trip!
Thank you!Enjoying your TR so far. Looking forward to the rest.
Wow, what a good way to set an example for your kid. So sorry that you had to put up with some more than crappy attitudes.yet I still was mocked and made fun of by a couple in probably their 40s-50s riding behind me with their young daughter. (Saying things loudly to each other like "DOES SHE REALLY NEED A PHOTO OF EVERYTHING GET A LIFE")
I’m sorry you had to ride IASW with rude people.

Enjoying your TR!
Sorry you had to deal with such awful people, mocking someone for enjoying the ride in their own way is tasteless and such people aern't worth the time of day. Hope you were able to enjoy the rest of evening!
Thank you all! It was definitely a bummer, but didn't keep me down for long!
Thank you! And I know, right!? I'm in the process of job hunting (wanting to start a family and traveling non stop for work don't pair well) and I just KNOW I will miss these work funded Disney tripsFollowing along. Great report so far! Way jealous that you get to go "home" for work!!!
That donut looks UHMAZING!!Day 3: Thursday June 20, 2019
Another day of work, BOO! This was the first day in my trip forecast of sunny skies and no chance of rain and naturally it was my longest session at the conference. I got to the Coronado around 8 and had to be there until 5 (but would I really stay that long? ......)
I started my day as always with Mickey waffles

My morning at the conference went SO SLOW. The conference is for high achieving high school students interested in health professions. Which means that they are VERY FAR from applying for medical school. So I was a bit bored. At this same conference last year I made a friend from Alabama, and she joined me for lunch outside. We bonded over our love for Disney!

(yes, we were still technically working but SHHHH we needed it)
This fiesta margarita was so good and the salty, spicy rim was amazing. I was also a big fan of the straws made from agave.
We returned to the exhibit hall, slowly but in better spirits, to take on the rest of the afternoon. Where I spent an hour not interacting with any students... and then another... so then I decided this wasn't going to be my day and got an Uber back to AS Movies

(I had to take a pictures! Don't see these guys in Maine!)
I had the Villains event this evening, but decided to go change into my bathing suit and rest by the pool for awhile before heading out. I needed a break!
When I got to my room, I was blown away by housekeeping. Not just the towel hearts, but it was the cleanest my room has EVER been at Disney. Even at the Poly!! There were just so many nice touches that showed me housekeeping took time and pride in their work. I made a call to the housekeeping line to please commend the CM who cleaned my room. The person who I spoke with seemed very pleasantly surprised to be getting a positive call about housekeeping.

With a smile on my face, I hit the pool.

I just spent an hour or so reading my book, swimming, and relaxing. I NEEDED this.
Feeling rejuvenated, I took a quick shower and got ready for my Villains event! I arrived at MK around 6, and double checked with the CMs about where to pick up my wristband inside the park closer to 7 PM.

So hot, but so beautiful LOL
I was on a mission - a Mickey shaped donut mission. I had a "something sweet" craving ALL DAY and had been perusing Instagram and the Disney Food Blog and this snack was calling my name. I was successful in snagging a strawberry frosted treat and DID NOT regret it. I did not regret my photoshoot with it either

SUCCESS! It was a LOT of donut and I didn't finish it all, but it hit the spot. I had made a dinner reservation for Tony's for during HEA to take a rest before the After Hours event and I was looking forward to that, so it was time to burn of some sugary carbs!
To be continued...
oh my god the donut!!! i wanted one SO BAD the last time i went -- but i didn't think i would finish the entire thing and my grandma doesn't eat sugar (by her own CHOICE, the madwoman) so i chickened out. i regret it glad you enjoyed it tho!!!
That donut looks UHMAZING!!
I cannot tell y'all how badly I wish that donut was sitting on my desk on this Monday morning at workI cannot wait to hear about Villains After Hours! It sounds so fun to me. Also that donut
