Hey there!

Well at long last, the day has come - in a few short hours, we’re heading down to WDW 👍

I am doing this on my phone and I can’t get GIFs to work unless I’m on my Mac, so alas, for now it shall be texts and emoji 👍

If we haven’t met, Hi 👋, I’m Diana, a 39-year old marketing consultant. I’m flying from Buffalo to Orlando with my crew:

Todd (45) - My awesome husband
Brandon (15) - My “I hope he’s not too cool to geek out now” stepson (he hasn’t been to WDW in 3 years, so we’re nervous he’ll be all teenager-y 🤣)
B (1.999) - She’s turning two the first week of January, so I can’t quite say 2 yet! Also, I shared Todd and Brandon’s names and pictures here almost 6 years ago so I’m rolling with their names. I’m trying to give my daughter a little privacy though ❤

We are staying at CBR (Pirate room) with the dining plan. For the full itinerary, check out my PTR .

We are getting up at 2:45AM for a 5:30 flight. Wish us luck 🤣

I did splurge today and book a Minnie Van from the airport. I think my daughter might sleep, and after our luggage being “lost” for 8+ hours last year, I like the thought of picking up our bags and leaving them at bell services so we arent at the mercy of DME.

I am calling this “live-ish” because I’ve really enjoyed the live TRs from folks lately, and I thought that live might capture some holiday vibes. But, they’ll be sporadic when I have some downtime. I’ll do full write ups here when I get home (and before I go back to work on 12/30 so I don’t drag this out like my wedding TR! 🤣).

Oh and I just realized my thread name -

A) Inspired by all your Friends GIFs 🤣
B) And because I have a horrific case of plantar fasciitis, so not only will I bot be running this trip (which makes me so sad), walking will be painful. It’s been 2 months and every type of therapy, including a cortisone shot last week...to no avail. My husband offered to push me in a wheelchair but no way! I am roughing this out...we’ll see how it goes 🙏

Excited for this live~ish report! I am headed down in January and had some Achilles surgery in August that hasn't healed as well as i would like....I anguished over it and am getting the wheelchair for our trip. Looking forward to your trip!

Ouch - I am sorry you’re not healing like you had hoped! Injuries like this are so difficult. If we didn’t have my daughter to push in her stroller, I may have given in. I’m hoping I can just get through it. I’m bringing my boot for sleeping, and I’ll be doing a lot of praying, stretching, resting and crossing my fingers 🤞

I’ll be following along. Have fun!
Thanks - I’m so excited!!

Have a great time!! I feel your pain—I ended up going under the knife for plantar fasciitis. I wish you all the best & I’m following along!

Thank you! I was inspired by your TR 🙂

WalkFit orthotics. Magic cure for PF. Uncomfortable at first, but I wore them for about two weeks and haven’t had a problem since. (10 years and counting)

Have a great trip!
ThanKs

Have a great trip - I hope the walking isn’t too terrible for you to enjoy it!
Thanks - I am hoping it magically goes away 🤣

Hoping your flight goes well, and best wishes upon your arrival. Sorry to hear about the foot issue -- lousey timing, but when in WDW, you'll still find a way to get around. So, not to worry! There's plenty of those ride vehicles to rent, if you need one.
