Trip Report "I Know More About Disney Than You Two"

Hello!! Hello!! I'm heading back to the world in 16 days so my goal is to get this TR done before I go. I know, you probably don't have much faith in me--neither do I, frankly. But, "If you can dream it, you can do it", right? ;)





Wednesday, April 14th - Sunday, April 18th

The reason for our trip was b/c E wanted to be there on her birthday!! This would actually be the 2nd time she's been in Disney for it. So, obviously all along I figured that the title would have something to do with it. You know, "The Birthday Trip" or something original like that.🤣 I've mentioned in the past that I normally wait though until the end of the trip to decide what the title should be. On day 2 J made a comment to his mother & I that in our wildest dreams we couldn't have been prepared for. Right then & there E's birthday TR title was totally tossed from my mind & a new title was born!!

A sincere welcome to everyone reading!!

Originally this trip was going to be Thursday through Sunday. I was going to ask to work early on Thursday so I could catch a late flight out that night. I was going to use Friday & Saturday as my days off for that week then Sunday as one for the following week. When presenting it to my boss he asked me when my sister was going. She was originally going to go Thursday morning. He told me to use a personal day for Thursday. That meant we would fly down Wednesday evening & have an extra Disney day!!:)

A few weeks before the trip I got notification that Southwest was moving our flight from 8pm to 7pm. Normally, I would be thrilled. I had planned on meeting E at her house as soon as I got done working at 4 & we were going to head to the airport right then. Now that the flight was an hour earlier I got concerned. The parkway heading towards the airport is a nightmare during rush hour traffic. Then, what if there was an accident on it? We would be doomed. I showed my boss the email regarding the flight change & he told me to leave at 3 instead!!

On the way to the airport I got the room ready text!!

Security was a breeze.

Well, thank goodness someone was open. The Pittsburgh airport is nothing short of a hot mess right now. Keep in mind it was about 4:45. It's hard to tell but Friday's was already closing for the day!!

As was McDonald's!!o_O Not that we wanted to eat there anyways!!

This was pretty much our only option. And not only ours--everyone else's that was in the airport also!! The people kept piling on in while we were there!!

Now, let me say that E & I weren't too keen on eating here. I guess you could say we're not typical Pittsburgher's. Fries & coleslaw on a sandwich--no thank you!! I think their sandwiches are gross.

We were glad to see they had more items than just what they're famous for!!


I got the turkey and bacon sandwich & was pleasantly surprised at how good it was!! I still don't care for their fries though--but at least they're on the side!!

What J has there is a ham & cheese. That is one of their traditional sandwiches. The only difference is that he got his fries & coleslaw on the side instead of on it.

I forgot what E had but she also enjoyed her food. We said we would definitely go back there again!!

We made a stop in the Sarris store & purchased these pretzels. Did they ever get opened on this trip? No.....

The Starbucks in the airport is still closed & Dunkin was already closed for the day:banghead:

J was going to get a donut to eat on the plane but since that wasn't a possibility we went to Cinnabon instead. How about this letter that they had posted by their register?? Good for them for not beating around the bush but I must say I was shocked at how "harsh" the tone of that letter was. I'm sure their employees dealt with a lot of aggravation & I feel for them but it also doesn't make good business sense to put something like this in writing.

We respected them so they waited on us!!

Ready for takeoff!!

He wasn't reading the safety instructions but was very intent on watching the flight attendant!!

Then he ate his Cinnabon!!


I was extremely excited to see that this episode of SVU was on. It's one of my favorites. SVU & Chicago PD have a few crossover episodes & this is one of them. The episodes are centered around this serial killer, Gregory Yates. I could watch those episodes over & over again!

Did you happen to watch the new Law & Order: Organized Crime series about Stabler that debuted back in the spring?
