I forgot to mention that between my mom & I only one of us was eligible for resort airline check-in. Her & I have the exact same name--first, middle & last(my dad named me after her). They told us that they could not issue two boarding passes with the exact same name & one of us would have to do it at the airport. It was very irritating but nothing compared to what happens to us on a future trip!!

That's all for Trip #2. #3 coming up soon!!

TRIP #3

WHEN:
February 13-16, 2017

WHERE: POR

WHO: E, J & myself

This was a super short trip. It was much too short for my liking but I guess something is better than nothing!!

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 13TH 2017

We had a late afternoon flight so we didn't arrive in Disney until the evening.

J was exploring the room.

He thought he was being funny hiding in the bathtub!!

We went to DS for dinner. I don't have any pictures from there but knowing us if I had to guess we most likely ate at Earl of Sandwich.

You'll notice that E is not only holding J but she also has moonie. We were having quite the time getting him to eat throughout the whole trip & he was a bit fussy. E took him to the doctor when we got back & it turned out that he had an ear infection.

It was dark when we left MK. I'm not quite sure what time it was but I'm sure it was before the fireworks with J not feeling well.

Back in the room J played with his cars. Then the night went totally downhill........
IMG_2040.JPG

IMG_2041.JPG

About 2 in the morning I was awakened by a lot of screaming & crying. It was J. All he kept repeating was "There's a monster in here". E kept telling him "It's not a monster. It's just your Aunt Patti.":oops: Apparently, I was snoring pretty bad & it was really scaring him. He was so scared that E put him in the stroller & took him outside to walk him in the hopes that he would calm down. He did but as soon as I would start snoring again he would start crying. I forced myself to stay up the rest of the night for the sake of all concerned.

By morning I was exhausted & was not going to put any of us in that predicament again. When I went out for my walk I went to the front desk & asked if I could get an extra room for that night. The CM was confused since I already had a room & I was kind of embarrassed to have to explain the situation but oh well. I'm sure this isn't the first time something like this has happened. BTW-I was even very diligent about using nasal strips. For whatever reason though I would snore a lot. Funny thing is I really don't anymore.

When I got back from my walk I told E that our problem was solved. She was irritated with me for spending the money to get another room. Honestly though it was better for everyone concerned. At first she really didn't believe that I did it but when I pulled out the new MB that they gave me for the room access she realized I was telling the truth. Besides, with J not feeling well it was really making things worse.

Moonie is out again.

Looks like we watched The Muppets.

We were looking forward to lunch as we really enjoy the food at 50's. The food was good but overall the meal was a bit rough. I guess by this point J was feeling pretty bad. I remember he wanted mac & cheese then would not eat a single bite. That was actually the third time that trip that he got mac & cheese and wouldn't eat it. I guess with the ear infection it probably hurt when he chewed. I always get the sampler platter and E always gets Aunt Liz's Fried Chicken so it's probably safe to say that's what we got.
IMG_2060.JPG


It was still light out when we got back to Riverside so we probably didn't stay at HS long at all that day. I remember getting my luggage & taking it to my new room. J was happy to hear that I would not be sleeping in their room that night.
IMG_2064.JPG

We just hung around the resort.

IMG_2067.JPG

We went to see Bob's show for a bit but I remember that E & J didn't stay long.
IMG_2069.JPG

I left after his first set. I was exhausted from the night before also.

Everyone was much more rested for our last day in Disney but J seemed to be feeling a bit worse.
IMG_2078.JPG

IMG_2080.JPG

He had kept talking about how he wanted to meet Buzz but he seemed scared when it was our turn. I'm thinking it probably had to do with the way he felt.

TRIP #4

WHEN:
April 30-May 4, 2017

WHERE: Where else.....

WHO: Who else.....

SUNDAY, APRIL 30TH 2017

We had a late afternoon flight but managed to squeeze in some time at MK for the evening.

Dumbo had become a favorite of J's & it was becoming a must do for every trip.
IMG_2209.JPG

As was dinner at Casey's.
IMG_2213.JPG
I will never make the mistake of ordering the footlong again. It is a ridiculous amount of food.

MONDAY, MAY 1ST 2017

J & I hung out while E rode Soarin.
IMG_2214.JPG

I just love the Flower & Garden Festival.

Had to take the traditional photo to send to our BIL.

We stopped for some PP pictures in Japan. The photographer took quite a few pictures.
wdw2017121720179915_8023048734.jpg

Then he told us to move J out of the way since he was sleeping!! It was kind of bizarre.

As soon as we got into the park we were approached by Chip N Dale!!
IMG_2244.JPG

I remember J being pretty cranky so he wasn't really thrilled. I believe he had some teeth coming in.

We had a dinner reservation at Tiffins with the ROL dining package. I have not one photo from dinner & have absolutely no clue why. We were excited to try it & we enjoyed our meals.

I recall that there was only a 20 minute wait for the safari so we went to that.

This was our first time seeing ROL & we were pretty excited. In the end we were disappointed with it. It felt like it just didn't "flow". I'm not quite sure how else to explain it.

We headed back to POR after the show was over. Then it happened again--the whole snoring debacle. I literally sat up in bed all night praying I wouldn't fall asleep. I bet you can guess what I did the next morning. In hindsight I should have just went down right then to see if I could get another room right away.

I told E that I got my own room(again)for the last two nights. It was after this trip that we started booking separate rooms. It kind of stinks b/c it costs us both more now but for the sake of everyone concerned it's the wisest move.

J really wanted to meet Buzz & Woody. He even had his Woody doll that he wanted to show them. It was a 40 minute wait & we waited exactly that:arghh:
IMG_2338.JPG

So imagine how disappointed we were that Woody stepped out right before it was our turn so all we got to see was Buzz.....

wdw2017123721315790_8024455498.jpg

Buzz was making a big deal about the Woody doll which you could tell made J excited. But then he seemed like he was starting to get nervous. I think he was worried that Buzz was going to keep the doll!!
wdw2017123721316054_8024455237.jpg

He looks a little upset.
wdw2017123721316055_8024455238.jpg

Happy to be getting his friend back!!
