the clash GIF


Orlando calling to the faraway towns..
Now a vacation is declared and we come down..
Orlando calling and I don't want to shout...
But while we were driving, I saw you nodding out
Orlando calling, and the Disney World..
Come out of the house, you 4 boys and 1 girl..
Orlando calling to our 2 bedroom resort...
Now that I'm home, the trip I report...

I never felt so much alike, alike, alike, alike

Per @Tuvalu 's inquiry, I am not on my way but we got back a few weeks ago from our second trip down to O-Town but this time mixed in a lot more Disney and a lot less Orlando area...

Sunday morning flight down to MCO was really early but I booked it so we didn't miss whole day because we were only staying til Friday...

This trip was with my parents, that were on a different flight, and my sister's family.

Picked up the P's and headed to ORD, which was super packed for an early Sunday but as I gathered, a lot of kids had Fall breaks...

Baggage in and a panic attack later, we were onboard the Trip 7 in the WAAAAYYY back with the riff raff: shout out to @wdisney9000

Jace's first time in the air!

He did really well and slept 90% of the flight, and we didn't have to drug him...Liam and Kaiden watched shows and I dealt with some soccer stuff while we sailed down in record time....

Once we got in and got bags, our Hertz rental hit a snag as my dad also rented from them and when I arrived, they assumed it was a duplicate rental because we share a name. I mean it could have been, apart from the different address on account, different middle name and different credit card information..So I wasn't sure how that happened... ;)

"I demand to speak to the GOAT" I yelled at the agent..."the GOAT, you know, Tom Brady, maybe he can sort this out for me".... He wasn't there, he was in Pittsburgh...Let's GO!

They were successful in getting it done so we were on our way to the Marriott Harbor Lake resort we stayed in on our June Trip...

We had a great view of Sea World!

The remainder of our travel day went smooth as the pool was the main focus for us all.

Kaiden and Liam were happy to see their cousin later in the day and excited to get back to the Pirate ship slides at the resort, as we were there in June. Groceries and unpacking and all of the boring stuff got finished so not much to report from Sunday.

Monday was a pool day and we went to the second pool with a waterslide that Liam and his new "best friends" and cousin hit multiple times...

Jace was ready for some fun too..!

We had an ADR for Raglan Road later that evening for dinner... Right as we were driving I got a text from @Darstarr asking how I was doing, as we chat from time to time...

"How's this for how I am doing" I snapped this picture as a reply and she gasped and asked if that was real..

"as real as the Presidents is HOP".. lol.

It had been a while since we ate there but we enjoyed the music and the food very much!

After we ventured to the Lego Store, WOD, and the other shops...

Disney Springs was very busy and the musical act was excellent on the main stage...

We had other business though: spending more money...

Tuesday was a Disney day but of course we started off at the pool.

Kaiden was in charge and wanted to go to the Pirate ship main pool. It turned out to be a good choice because there was a Reptile show with snakes and alligators. We ate lunch while they watched...

Then they got the thrill of their young lives, per Liam's statements...

Of course Liam was game but Kaiden was a little apprehensive, but as soon as we got up to his turn, he nailed it...There was a little girl in line just a head of us, and she was a little scared and got out of line but once she saw K do it, she got back in line and held the it! Her family was proud of her and we clapped too!


On to our busy afternoon as we had tix to MNSSHP as it made it's full return this year. We were very excited and Halloween is Kaiden's favorite holiday and had been wearing his costume every day since we got it leading up to the trip...

Jace getting ready with me!

Short rant next:
Once we hit the main gate from the Monorail, the CM's pointed to the east portion of the tap-stiles as usual, but instead of filing into them after the center part, they made us walk all of the way down the Contemporary path as the "line started down there, we literally were 100 ft from the security check when we turned around. The line was moving however, when we got back to the tap-stiles, it was obvious they opened up the lines and let anyone file in, because our family was already in the park but they were behind us..

"I need to speak with your manager, Mickey Mouse please", I said to the CM's giving out the wristbands... She was shocked they made us to that...

Once inside we met up with my parents and got the plan together for the evening...My sister's family were already headed to rides so we hit the restrooms and then ventured in!
