Might as well grab a Cuban sandwich...

New flight time announced as 3.30pm. Arrive at 4.35, so almost two hours after we were going to be (if they manage to change the tire). Not the worst. Shouldn’t complain yet either I suppose, could get worse! But... 2 hours less Poly time! :(

Better safe than sorry with that plane tire though. I would much rather enjoy that delicious looking cuban than be in the air worrying whether or not the tire would pop when you land. ;)

Yep definitely better safe than sorry! Just annoying. We booked an earlier flight from Mexico rather than wait till late afternoon/evening to get to Orlando. Should of just booked the later one and stayed in bed 2 more hours! Oh well. Of course want the tire replaced safely!

Maybe you should all go and help - don’t they realise they are eating into Disney time?!
Ha ha exactly! Why aren’t they paging the departure hall for any mechanics to come help like they do for doctors when there is a medical emergency? ;) It is Disney World waiting after all!

yep, thats a real cubano..nice:p
It was really good! We got some other stuff from the same place on the way out, it was surprisingly tasty & authentic! I mean I know we’re in Miami, but it’s still an airport. The place being packed with Cuban’s eating should have been a clue though!

We also hit Tambu lounge tonight (before Trader Sam’s) but I forgot pics! :facepalm:

We were pretty tired tonight after the long travel day, but after Trader Sam’s we headed back to the room to get our washing from Mexico to put on before heading out to grab a dole whip and watch the fireworks. I also forgot a photo of the dole whip! It’s been a long day!

Love the perimeter fireworks :happy:

It was nice to get an empty pool pic after the fireworks! And the sky was really pretty tonight!

We then headed to Captin Cooks to see what snacks we could get and we actually grabbed a small pot of Asian noodles- it was in the chilled section and only $2.99- but back at the room and heated up in our microwave it was actually quite substantial!

Now we are just chilling and watching tv whilst deciding what to do tomorrow! It’s a shame we didn’t get here before dark today, but I’m still so happy to be home! These are our magicband names too! :D

I guess all those talks for free FPs and gift cards got to us! :joyfull: We’re now two of the newest DVC members with ownership in Copper Creek Villas & Cabins! Well, it was our tenth trip anniversary so... what else were we going to do?!

And even better... we have 2 nights at the Poly already booked for our return after Mexico! :D There was no where else available at the moment for the other 2 nights, but we’ll keep checking. Otherwise those points will be banked for next year! We’re actually really excited. Plus, cute rucksack! That’s important! Ha ha.
I just saw this post... (I know, I'm a little behind on my trip reports!) Anyway, congratulations on joining DVC!!! We own points at the Poly, although we haven't stayed there yet! :) We just booked a stay at Saratoga Springs for the last week in February. Can't wait go be "home" again!!

I love the backpack!!

So I really need to catch up on yesterday and today to keep this trip as live, but I just had to say look at this balcony! We’ve left the Poly now and secured a night at Beach Club with our points. Shame we’re only here one night!

Sorry @Tuvalu I think this one beats the roof view from your previous stay once again! ;)

We’re off too DHS now so I’ll update the last 24 hours later tonight!

Ahh and of course as always I managed to lose track of the last few days back in Disney, thus this is no longer a "live" report!

We're now back home in England :cry::depressed: The Disney blues are hitting hard. I remember reading several people saying they'd just got home in this and other reports- and when in Florida that seems like a bad dream. Now it's real!

I'm going to get this trip report finished this time though as we had a really awesome last few days- and I want to try and escape through reminiscing! It feels like we've been back an age and it's only been 3 days!

Ok lets try and get this wrapped up before Christmas!!

Where were we... feels so long ago now!

Wednesday 5th December

So it was a cold morning for Orlando (although actually, in the sun it was still warm for us Brits!) and we were on our way to MK! We had a couple of FPs booked (from that morning too- Jungle Cruise, Pirates and Buzz- maybe not the most difficult to get, but with the current crowds they actually were a real plus! We really had lucked out this trip being able to make plans on the day). We were also meeting Alisa today who was currently on her way.

There was a slight hold up on the monorail due to a traffic build up I believe, but we were at the gates before we knew it.

Hello beautiful but non-moving train!

It was pretty busy today! We were going to head to Starbucks, but seeing the que out the door we changed our minds! Somehow, we decided that instead of a Starbucks we would grab some breakfast- and this breakfast turned out to be Casey's :joyfull: That's Disney magic! Although to be honest it was now just gone 12pm, so it technically was lunchtime anyway! We went for a very breakfasty coffee replacement of Bacon Mac & Cheese Fries and Corn Dog Nuggets! :D It took a while to just order, but after about 20 mins we had our food in hand and managed to find a stand-up table to eat at. It was delicious!

It was now nearing the time of our Jungle Cruise FP- and Alisa was about 20 mins from getting into the park so we decided to ride and then meet Alisa at the entrance to Pirates for our next FP. En route to our FP we decided we needed to add dessert to our healthy breakfast! We picked up one of these sandwiches of deliciousness!

After this we started heading towards Jungle Cruise when we noticed that the FP line was up and out to the pathway nearing Aladdin's Flying Carpets! This wasn't a good sign. I asked the CM holding the "line starts here" sign how long he thought it would be and with the sad exasperation of obviously dozens of previous angry tourists already berating him over the line he said "Please, please don't hold me to it, but it will probably be about 25 mins". I thanked the poor CM and we decided we weren't too bothered about riding with a wait for FP, plus Alisa would be here soon. So we decided to head towards Sleepy Hollow to admire the castle as the area around Pirates was pretty packed.

This is always my favourite place to admire the castle!

Alisa then messaged to say she was in and at Starbucks, so we decided to head over there to meet her. Apparently I have no photos from the rest of MK apart from this gem on Pirates.

Alisa was actually happy at some points today- apparently at this moment in time though she was in a "I'm back from my wedding in Mexico and I have to wait 10 days for my husband to finish his work tour before we can go on Honeymoon" depressive funk that even Disney couldn't lift. Either that or she was remembering the upcoming Red Head replacement scene :joyfull:
Not sure what Russ and I were doing either- that damn photo and flash gets us every time!
