Trip Report Shortest Retirement in History?

Justin Bieber lasted 2 weeks.

Tom Brady lasted 40 days.

I, Tuvalu, outlasted them both. Not by much, mind you. Yet if not for the encouragement of some forum friends - along with some unusual circumstances - you wouldn’t be reading this.

Unusual circumstances, you say?

Around Thanksgiving my beloved Woody learned his presence was required at a work conference. In Orlando. At Universal.
Just down the road from Walt Disney World.

Woody said I could accompany him if he drove (rather than flew) to Florida. And that we could leave a couple days early and have some Disney time together.

Well you don’t have to ask me twice!

I’d be on my own during the conference. Since the majority of Universal’s attractions don’t appeal to me, it didn’t make sense for me to buy Uni tickets when I could visit WDW for free with my AP. Being solo, I thought it might be fun to do a live trip report so y’all could be my virtual companions!

Turns out I won’t be alone while Woody is occupied after all. Some friends that you have seen in my previous TRs (and one you haven’t) have offered to play with me. I can’t wait!

Hoping I get to meet up with you next week!!
That would be great!

I can't even express how much this saddens me....:cry:

And please warm up WDW with your sunny presence. It’s looking a little chilly next week. And I have promised someone we’d go swimming. 🥶
I'll do my best! However there's rain forecasted in addition to the cold. You could always sit by the splash pad all bundled up while Lil BES does her thing!

Yay, glad you are back. I love your trip reports.
Thank you for introducing me to the pulled pork nachos at the Poly
You're very kind. But I think you may have me confused with another trip reporter who loves the pulled pork nachos at the Poly. The burnt ends nachos at Whispering Canyon (WL) are my jam!
