Trip Report The Never-Ending Summer Of Disney *COMPLETED*

Epilogue

@93boomer forgive me for keeping you in suspense.

Two days before my 60 Day FP window I received an email from Disney Destinations with the subject line, Thank you for booking at WALT DISNEY WORLD Resort! This intrigued me since I had not recently booked a resort stay. Was Disney giving me a free stay?

Of course not. 😏The email was a duplicate confirmation for my next trip. Thinking the email might have been triggered by a fix of my MDE account, I immediately opened the app.

And, joy of joys, there was my AP renewal linked and ready to go. 🎉

I never received a call from a cast member nor any other notification that the issues with my account had been resolved. BUT.....I was able to make my fastpasses, and thus far they have not disappeared from MDE (although I plan to screenshot all of them!) I guess the real test will be the first time I try to enter a park. I won’t truly relax until Mickey’s head turns green!

To everyone who has followed along with my summer adventures: THANK YOU! It was great to stretch out my favorite time of year and postpone the end-of-summer blues. Thankfully, my second favorite season is just around the corner. 😊

@Longers I hope you ride BTMRR many times on your upcoming vacation! I’ll leave you with this retro pic ~

#BTMRRrules!!
Loving this pic and I’ll certainly be on BTMRR soon.

Just wondering how many rides I can fit in :)

I said to Chris only this week that we have a tough challenge to which he replied “Tuvalu will probably be out there loads of times before the end of the year anyway!” - to hear him say it was just so funny....

Sad to see the TR end as well. It has been fun following along and given me ideas for when I go to the parks. Love the BTMR "contest" and because I loved it already and wanted to see how many times I myself could get on it, it got my wife to ride it again, and it might be her favorite ride in MK now.

You and I both feel the same way about summer. Sad to see it end and a completed summer adventure TR- but I know there will be another summer and Tuvalu adventure soon. ;) My days are now 11/25-12/1, if you are there when I am, would love to say hello, if our paths happen to cross.
Thanks for sharing your adventures once again, always love reading.
You're right @DisneyShe ~ there's always another summer to look forward to! I have one summer trip booked already; not sure if there will be more than one (but odds are favorable there will be :joyfull:) Would love to say hello to you too if our paths ever cross!

I can't believe the Summer of @Tuvalu is over! Is there going to be a holiday humdinger trip report?!!
Well there is an upcoming holiday trip......

Thank you for telling us all your summer adventures... I live vicariously thru reports until I can go again Oct/Nov 2019....
Enjoy your "taste of Disney" in a few weeks. Oct/Nov 2019 will be here before you know it....and it's never too early to start planning. :happy:

This is my daily entertainment reading session in your TR. If you stop writing this now, that means I'll have to find something else to do. :jawdrop: I might have a breakdown. :facepalm::p
I'm sure you will find plenty of other things to do. No breakdowns necessary. ;)

I'm glad I'm not the only one disappointed to see the "completed" label!
You're very kind. Please do a TR when you return from your December vacation. :bookworm:

How appropriate that the end of your summer report coincides with winter suddenly arriving here 😂
I told you I tried to make summer last as long as possible!!

Chris' comment made me smile! I do have the advantage of one more trip this year after yours. I no longer consider it a friendly competition between you and me, but rather a goal for myself ~ how many times can I ride BTMRR in a year? That number will be one for my memory book and I encourage you to do the same!

You"ll need to inform me and @Longers how many rides you get in this year! Glad to hear you converted your wife into a BTMRR lover. :)

Great trip report, sad to see it end. Work will now be boring :depressed:
Thanks for putting some magic in my summer/fall! I enjoyed reading of your summer adventures and can’t wait to read about the next trip.
What a great summer, thanks for taking us along I can't wait for your next report.
Thanks friends for following along!

Thanks again for an always entertaining adventure! It was fun seeing you guys for 3 minutes in July. Maybe we'll be able to hang out for ten or fifteen in December - I'll be in touch!

30 days till I head back down again myself... :geek:

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'll be sure to keep @Tuvalu and @Longers updated on my BTMRR number! My wife does love it but only during the day. She feels it is too intense for her at night. I on the other hand love to ride it at night. I also got my 4 year old son to ride it with me. He loves trains and was pretty excited to go on. Didn't enjoy it so much while on it. But a couple days after we rode it he was talking about riding that "fast train" again at Disney world and going "swoosh" and "vroom".
