Trip Report The (second) ONE with enhanced cleaning and (a little less) Physical Distancing. Sept 2020

How is everyone doing out there???

A little background on this trip. This trip was origionally booked as a Food and Wine/Birthday girls getaway with two of my friends. We booked The Poly at 7 months Thursday through Sunday. (One friend’s bday was Thurs, the other was Sunday! Sooooo perfect!!!)
Buuuuut, they are both teachers and were not allowed to go. (Read that again. Not Allowed☹️)
I had the reservation and I wanted to go. My friend, R and I had a trip in April we had canceled. We had rescheduled for October to do a Halloween party (Nope!) and a DVC moonlight madness (Nope again). Then, she lost her job😞 so she came back to work with me. Her Mom, Gpa and Uncle own the business.
“Hey R, want to go to Disney in September instead?”
“Yeah!”
“Should we add a night? I still have 18 points I can use.”
“Yeah”
“Do you think we can get the extra day off?”
She looks at me. I look at her. 😂😂😂
I mean, her Mom makes the schedule.

She booked her flight, bought her park tickets, made her park reservations and we were set.

Tuesday night, September 15th I caught the sunset and headed to bed for an early start the next morning.

Wednesday, September 16 came early. R’s Gma was flying back to Ft Lauderdale an hour before our flight. So we all went together to help her out.

We were not sitting together because our flights were booked seperately. I asked to move us together but I asked on the late side and it was a no go. It was fine. We watched movies. I love Jet Blue TV’s!

Yay! The sign said 45 minute wait. The woman who checked us in pointed out the sign and said it “could” take 45 minutes.

Overheard on the ME: “Mom, I dont want to go to the Magic Kingdom!”
“Where do you want to go?”
“Legoland!!”
Haha😂
Lets check the weather...

Back of the bus. Not a 45 minute wait but about 20.

Too far in the back of the bus to get THE SIGN. How about the side of the road? Almost as good???

For the record, we went to Wilderness Lodge, BLT, the Contemporary and then The Polynesian.

We finally made it and were ready to let the fun begin!!

So jealous - have a wonderful trip. Our trip to Disneyland (my daughter's first time their) was cancelled in March 14th right when covid started and DL was closing. We rebooked for Sept. 18th thinking this will all be a memory but DL still not open so we had to cancel second attempt. My daughter also had a Disney Cruise for end of May for her first wedding anniversary which was also cancelled (suprise). October 3rd will be one year since we were on WDW property. Sooooo sad - I want my Disney back and covid gone! So happy for you though. Say hello to Mickey and the gang for us. xoxo

I have been gone for so long, I not only missed you finishing your last one, but starting a new one?? I'm sorry, that is unacceptable!

But school from home has been a doozy (which is luckily getting better), and I've decided to start training to become a travel agent (focusing on Disney of course!). So time has been beyond limited, but I miss reading along TRs!

I guess that’s why we’re friends! There’s a reason my nickname in college was “the captain”!

As someone who hates the Phillies with great passion, I appreciate this gif.
I too hate the Phillies. Although I will admit that my one trip to that ballpark was wildly entertaining thanks to the Phillie Phanatic!

What is with all this Philly hate?

No matter how bad our teams get, we still have the best mascots.

Sorry @fractal
I don’t necessarily hate the Phillies.
I do not have any love, brotherly or otherwise for them though.
Now the lowly, cheating houston asterisks? Them I hate.
HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE!!!

Everyone must have been eating and drinking around the world.

This is when I decided, as long as I am wearing a mask I will not smile. All smiling does is make my forehead all wrinkly. It makes me look mad. I told R, if my husband asks for xmas present ideas, one word.....
BOTOX.

Some much needed caffeine and I might have charged my phone😂

Haha. That is my charger in the bottom left corner. I probably charged my charger as well.

No smiling because of the wrinkle situation.

We had one more must do. Get an Aass beer!! No, I kid. We had to ride Frozen. But since the Aass cart is right there...🤷‍♀️might as well...right?
And R got a fancy schmancy bottle of water. Apparently, Norway does not sell dasani.
