Trip Report Let's try a live report this time! May 1-6

Since it took me almost 6 months to complete my last trip report, I thought I would attempt a live trip report this time. If it doesn't work out, it might take me a year to complete since we are staying twice as long as our last trip.

I am still currently at work but can't focus since I have Disney on my mind! I thought I would give a little background about this trip that we will be starting on Friday night. So my last trip was in September 2020 with my brother Patrick, his fiancé Taylar, my brother's best friend Nick, and his fiancé Taylea. My kids were pretty upset that I went without them so I promised them after "corona goes away" we would go again. Well we all know that isn't happening for a while plus I got a huge raise at work (which I am ignoring right now lol) so I figured let's give May a try! I booked the trip for our family of four but then my sister-in-law invited us to go to the Gulf Shores with them in July and my husband doesn't have enough PTO to take two weeks off so he decided he will stay home and I will just take the kids to Disney alone. When my mom heard about it, she volunteered to join us! She came with the kids and I on our short 2 night trip in February 2020 and had the most magical time. I explained to her that things will be really different this time but still magical! I thought we were all set on the cast of this trip, until Nick and Taylea decided to join us!
Who: Me, my two kiddos Joseph & Sadie, my mom/Gramma, Nick, and Taylea
Where: My mom, the kids, and I will be doing a split stay...1 night at Coronado Springs Resort (for our pool day) and the rest at Art of Animation Little Mermaid Room. The kids have no idea where we are staying....they have been calling it "Mommy's secret hotels". Nick & Taylea will be staying at All Star Movies.
When: My mom, the kids, and I will be landing at MCO tomorrow night around 11pm and leaving on Thursday morning. Nick and Taylea arrive Saturday morning and stay until the following Saturday.
Here is a picture of my mom, the kids, and I on our last trip in February 2020

Goal for tonight is to finish packing, give the kids a bath, and make a to-do list for my husband while we are gone. We'll probably finish Toy Story 3 tonight too. Another full day at work tomorrow and then heading straight to the airport!

How did you sign up for the Fairy Godmother in Training thing? That looks adorable! I was bummed that my soon to be 4 year old would miss BBB on our upcoming trip but this might be a wonderful alternative.
On the Facebook group Ear for Each Other which is laid off cast members. Her own Facebook group is called Once Upon A Transformation and it was awesome! Sadie was too young on our first trip and on our second trip we didn’t have enough time so I’m super happy I could do this on this trip.

Lunch was really good! Sadie and Joseph shared spaghetti and meatball and the adults each had the trio sampler which isn’t on the menu at the moment but our server told us about it. Yummy!

Joseph didn’t like the cupcake icing. He said it was gross so he just ate the cake part. When we left we saw Pooh, rabbit, and tigger cavalcade!

We headed to Tomorrowland for the peoplemover which we are currently waiting in line for. Stitch came out and the kids and I hopped out of line for a picture.

After that we split up and Nick took Joseph to ride space mountain for the first time ever and us ladies went to Buzz! After our space ranger spin we saw buzz out on stage and took a picture.

We met the guys in space mountains gift shop and Joseph came running out yelling about how awesome it was! We headed to fantasyland so Joseph and I could take the 10 second ride on goofy’s coaster and Sadie and gramma went on dumbo because Sadie had been talking about it for weeks. Now we’re in line for mine train. By the way...all the lines are going way faster than posted! Hope I didn’t just jinx myself lol

Looks like you are having a fun day. I like the Peter Pan masks!
Thanks! I love how the lady who made them made sure Peter Pan was right in the middle!

Love the idea of a homemade/personalized scavenger hunt for the kids!!
thanks! I knew my kids were gonna need something to keep their interest while we wandered around the countries. But we didn’t stay long enough to find them all. Next time we come we’re doing park-pool-park-pool etc so we have more time to rest.

I wasn’t sure if mine train was going to be to Sadie’s liking because she didn’t really like slinky dog but we got off it and she ran up to nick yelling about how much fun it was! We went straight to Winnie the Pooh to bounce about. Then the kids, my mom, and I went straight to storybook treats for some ice cream!!!!

oh my goodness!!! I usually only ever get dole whips at magic kingdom but when I saw I could get a rootbeer float I wasn’t going to be left out! Joseph and gramma got the Peter Pan floats and Sadie got the strawberry sundae. We ate it all!! It was so good!!! Nick and taylea had left to get a hot dog and ride splash. Taylea texted me right when we were finishing that she saw the princess cavalcade going by splash so we rushed over to the Frontierland bridge to catch it. We were so thankful for her doing that because we needed some princesses in our lives today!

After pirates we met back up with nick and taylea near splash. Gramma took Sadie to ride the carousel while we went in big thunder mountain completing the 3 mountain challenge for Joseph and nick! It was around this point if the day where I was really starting to realize that we have almost rode every ride we wanted to!

We saw some Disney ducks on the way outof big thunder. We headed over to meetup with gramma and Sadie near the carousel and then did little mermaid. Afterwards we decided it was time to chill on Main Street! Which is one of my favorite things to do! Joseph and I went into Starbucks to get the exclusive Tatooine mug they were selling because it was May the Fourth.

Also got gramma an ice coffee and some of their ice waters.

We say a squirrel on Main Street. Then nick decided he was gonna take Joseph on space mountain again and us ladies stayed on Main Street. I went into the temp bakery area and that was a major let down. I bought a prepackaged cookie and Sadie stole it from me. Kinda glad she did because the one but I took sucked.

after the boys were done with space we said our goodbyes and hugs because we have a pool day and nick and taylea will be going to Hollywood studios for Revenge of the Fifth.

We took some photos with the castle before heading to the bus stop. While on the bus I mobile ordered a turkey sandwixh and a cheeseburger kids meal. I pressed I’m here when I saw Hollywood studios and I got the notification right when I was unfolding the stroller when we got off the bus. Perfect! We took the food back to our room and enjoyed our late night dinner and talked about our day. Really sad we have no more park days but we still have fun planned!

This morning I woke up super early to return my mom’s scooter at 6am, dropped off a case of water to be transferred to Nick and taylea, came back to the room, hung out for a minute and then mobile ordered some coffee (because the hotel room coffee sucks) and a waffle platter for us to share. We all ate and got ready and headed to the skyliner around 9:45 and the line was like 2 miles long. I knew we wouldn’t make it to our 11am ADR so I called a car seat Uber. The kids played at the playground for 15 minutes while we waited for the Uber to come.
