Trip Report Did someone spit on me... or is it raining? May/June 2018

Hello and Welcome!!!

Yes friends, unfortunately (but fortunately) I am back from my 3rd and final trip of 2018... I had to make sure my annual pass went to good use ;)

This trip was amazing and I'm so glad I was able to go back... but it left me wanting MORE!!!! More time, more Disney, more park days... TAKE ME BACK, ALREADY!!!

Since I've been home I've been working 5 days a week at my job, 30 hours a week... not enjoying my summer so far. But hey, a girl has to save for her next Disney adventure!

Daniel (who is not featured in this TR) also has landed himself a big boy job for the summer - which will turn over into an internship in the fall! They've even offered to hold his position for when he graduates next spring! :joyfull::joyfull::joyfull: I'm so happy for him and in fact he is working his last shift at his old job right now!

Enough of the boring, real life details... I know you all want to hear about this trip! So on with the show!!

To recap ---

WHO: Myself (Becca, 20) and my mom, Lynn (older than me ;) )
WHEN: May 30th - June 3rd, 2018
WHERE: Port Orleans French Quarter
WHY: A mother-daughter adventure!

Before I start the recent photos... I just found this one from like 2010 (?) so I was like 11-12... and LOL

We headed into Creature Comforts where there was already a sizable line, so we waited about 10 minutes before ordering.

Yes I had a cupcake for breakfast... sue me ;)
I got a triple mocha frap which was delicious!! Mom got a vanilla latte I believe. Her go-to during fall is a PSL, too bad we went in May!

We people watched for a while and eventually got up. I could tell it was going to be crowded and hot...

Your breakfast cupcake looks delish!
It was excellent! I believe it was chocolate with some kind of fudge filling... yum!
No better place to eat a cupcake for breakfast than Disney!
True!! The best place to have your daily amount of sugar in one meal!
great last photo! I'll have to remember that spot.
Thank you!! I love that wall!
It looks like you are in some secret hallway!
Its actually a cast member only spot to the right of the wall... but as long as you don't go past the sign they don't mind you taking photos with it :)

Selfie! I think a rule is that you always have to take a selfie by "famous" walls in Disney :)

I made her stand there like the good daughter I am! Moms never get pictures alone since they are usually the ones taking them!

We headed off on our next adventure!

Love your report. AK is our favorite park too. We love all the authentic details. I was wondering where you took the picture at the "You are beautiful" wall? I've never seen that area before.
I always assumed cupcakes and cake were breakfast food;) Thanks in advance!

I'll put it in a spoiler so if someone wants to explore on their own, they can ;)
It took me a while as well to find it since it is sort of "hidden"
Harambe Marketplace in the Africa section of the park. Look for it on the park-side of a cast members-only doorway. You have to go into the Marketplace to be able to find it!

I have my first nursing exam Monday so I've been studying! Not to mention I've had skills testing and papers/quizzes/life so I am sorry but I'm almost done :hilarious:

This safari was the first time I have ever seen the giraffes RUNNING! I have a video I'll post but it was seriously super cool to see.

This was my favorite safari ever, probably the best one I've ever been on as well. All of the animals were really active and some even got close to the vehicle!

Next - more safari!

Becca: I don't know how you even have time to do a trip report???? I am an RN and all I ever did is study, take tests, go to clinicals. I'm amazed that you can do it all:) Way to go:) Thanks for the spoiler about the wall. We will try to find it this December!

Here's the giraffes running... it was really cool to see in person!

Then we moved onto seeing some bigger friends!

They were pretty sneaky and good at hiding! I guess they were camera shy, maybe it's because they forgot their trunks ;)

Next up - more Safari!

Oh also update -

Daniel and I (it was all me) booked our flight for our trip in May! The dates haven't opened to our return day and won't until November but that's fine by me :joyfull:

We're leaving 5/31 at 5:15am :oops: and landing in FL at 7:45! I love the earliest flight so I was happy to see it was only $97! :joyfull:

Giraffes running video was very interesting. I've never seen them run before. So it's up to 35 mph for short distances and 10 mph for longer distances. Never knew this! :)
