This trip was planned Friday about 1030pm. Those of you that know me know my distain for cold, worse snow and ice. Saw what was coming and my DD said get out of here. I had to endure one day of the blast yesterday but it is 83 degrees at the Moment.

And we I know how much I hate rack rate. So up at 2am to go to Midway. On 1.5 hours sleep 😴 $49 MDW TO MCO

And that is where the good Karma ended for awhile

So quick change from Frozen Arctic to shorts and a tank and had to go to Guest relations to validate my AP that I bought at the old rate.

I was sent to will call. Nasty CM. She told me she would not do it because my DD wasnt
Here. It was for 2 APs. My DD was actived for our September trip. Mine had not exited yet. Snotty she told me to go to another Guest Relations. About a 90 minute wait. I struck up a conversation with a CM around my age that had origysent me to Will Call. When I finally reached a window it was the same lady. So sweet. She could see it from my magic band.

I was gifted FPs for my troubles. FP make things better just like ice cream

MK is having issues today. Apparently 5 E tickets kept going off line and the FP lines for those and others caused some nasty lines, FP ha!

Trapped with 2 stretch rooms with ride down for 20 minutes. When I finally was disembarking I was the last off. Only FP no standby at all.

Jingle Cruise had issues to but I believe it is a combo of it being Jingle Cruise, not open for Christmas Party tonight but mostly the stupid way they are handing wheelchairs and scooters

I love Jingle Cruise. A fun young woman that spoke 4 languages. Her name is Jim and seemed to love the Christmas theme

Lots of photos as it is my favorite attractions for Christmas21A0536A-C94E-4E13-9239-D358824199FD.jpeg97C465D0-467D-4890-8829-8F108C510C02.jpegF76C8CBB-79BF-4584-9228-73FEA70083C4.jpeg7B123F4A-EC6B-4C3D-9B98-8AC8A0FCCDB4.jpegFBCE54E7-A268-4168-BCB5-26D1C447B836.jpeg9B6DC132-8D62-4E58-B4E3-B1CCB5C7009F.jpeg6D7CC50F-3986-4F26-9905-63A6C76B26B2.jpeg66D17D96-96FA-4F6F-B00C-BDD3B9FC4524.jpeg8866CEB6-7F0C-41C8-9A7E-6FFA6022AC95.jpeg1147E138-2FEE-4696-A2A2-2D795001D51E.jpeg

1. I'm very envious.
2. Great report and I'm following right along.
3. My car doors were also frozen shut this morning from the combo of rain that turned to freezing rain and ultimately 3" of snow. Low tonight is 11 degrees, which is roughly 50 degrees lower than my tolerance despite decades of dealing with winter.
4. Thank you for the pictures and entertaining dialogue.
