Tuesday, October 3rd…

So, we had an 8a flight outta’ ABIA (Austin-Bergstrom International Airport) on American Airlines. Again, Carolyn found us a good deal…!!! :)
Megan, Daniel, Emmy and Audrey flew Outta’ Austin at about the same time on United, as they had points they could use. Our flights ended up landing only 10 mins. apart, and were both on time, and uneventful…!!! :)

We were close to ABIA by 5:52a…!!!

Figment Popcorn Bucket joined us on this trip, and some pics from the airport, the flight, and landing at MCO…!!! :)

One last post for today…!!! :)

Then, it was off to the “Fonorail”, our Mears transport, the worst pic of the WDW arch ever (we were too far back in the bus for me to get a good pic through the windshield :hilarious:), and then to our resort for the next 5 nights…!!!!! :happy:
We were at AKL before back in 2012 for dinner at Boma, but, only ever dreamed of staying here on a trip…this resort is gorgeous and amazing in so many ways…apparently, some dreams do come true…!!!!! ;):happy:

We ran into Pluto and Goofy in the lobby of AKL…!!! :)
Audrey wasn’t too sure about Pluto, but, Goofy was more than willing to get his picture taken with Figment Popcorn Bucket…!!!!! 😂
