Trip Report **COMPLETED** Our HalloChristmas Adventure

Hey everyone - since I finally finished my other trip report I will get to this super delayed one :)

Who?
The usuals: my Mom (Mary) and myself (Megan) PLUS special guest --- my Dad (Jeff)!

Where?
The Yacht Club! We actually changed from the Beach Club last minute and I was so excited. We love the Yacht Club way more for some reason and we were excited to share that love with my Dad.

When?
October 29 - November 6, 2021

Why?
My Dad has not been to Disney since pre-COVID so we planned this trip forever ago to bring him back! He does not do well in the heat so we chose a cooler time of year (aka not our July trip) for him :)

Day 1 October 29, 2021
I got up at 3 am, got ready and waited for my parents to pick me up at 4 am. 😴
Our airport drive and check-in/TSA experience went super fast. We grabbed some bagels for breakfast.

Then waited at the gate.

I assumed this is how all my photos with my Dad would look but he did better :)

We boarded our plane and left on time! How unusual :joyfull:
Magic Bands ready!

I love this monorail wrap

Day 1 continued
We hired a car service again and good news- our driver was NOT Donald :hilarious:

We had a younger kid this time who was super cool and we talked about football the whole drive!
Our room was actually already ready which was awesome! I was thrilled too because we had a water view which I definitely did not pay for!

Anyway - after dropping our stuff off and changing credit cards we hopped right on a bus to MK (which was just magically waiting for us)! We walked onto Main Street and noticed that a. Mickey Mouse was back! and b. The wait was super short! So of course we hopped in line.
The lighting in this room is definitely not made for selfies or photos when you are not right next to Mickey Mouse but that did not take away from the experience. I actually cried because I was so happy to meet Mickey again :)

After this we popped into the Confectionary to check the remodel out.
It is nice in there!

Then some photos on our way to get lunch. Lunch is seemingly always our first order of business :hilarious:

My Dad did not like it but I really enjoyed it!

I said I was not going to spend money on Genie Plus but as we were at lunch I realized that the wait times were so long I really wanted it :joyfull: So I bought it and booked a FP for POTC. While we waited for that window to open we hopped in line at Haunted Mansion.

We were in line for 20 minutes before they ended up kicking us out of line because the ride shut down. :banghead::cry:
At least that 20 minutes got us to our POTC window so we hopped over there.

Love your trip reports Megan! Very excited to read this one! Disappointed that Donald wasn’t your driver again🤪

Yay, I'm joining in early for a change!! Looking forward to seeing more pics :) I was disappointed that I didn't get to go inside the Confectionary this trip. I had plans to go on our way out of MK for the after hours Christmas but they locked up earlier than I thought.

Looking forward to more fun. I heard that Donald requested not to take your trip this time. He's disappointed that you don't think he's funny and entertaining!!!!!

YAY, so excited to see that you started another TR and this time your Dad is included!!! It looks like you got off to a great start with an incredible room view from the YC! We left WDW on 10/29 and it did seem crowded that trip!

I love how your dad made Mickey ears in the photo with the original 😊

He felt left out since he did not have ears on :hilarious:

Yay, another Doc Disney TR. Looking forward to this adventure and it’s lovely to see your dad joining you and your mum this time.

Thanks for following !! We were happy to have him with us (most of the time)
