    Sealsm's TR 5/12 - 5/19 (photo heavy)

    Hey gang! I spent last week at the ever fabulous WDW resort, took a ton of pictures, and am in the process of organizing them all for my TR. Since I have so many pictures, I am going to post them by each individual day.

    Saturday, May 12th

    I went to WDW with my parents. We try to go every year, depending on when my breaks from school are scheduled. The vacation started off fairly well. We woke up at 4am, arrived at the airport at 6 and were ready to catch our 8am flight with time to spare. Then we ran into our first blunder.......



    We had no plane. It had been taken to another city the previous night, but would arrive shortly. They were only behind 30 mins. I could handle that. The plane arrived and everyone boarded, only to be told by the pilot a few minutes later that there was a problem with the fuel line. Everyone had to get back off the plane and back into the terminal. There was no word from the airline of our flight's status and a huge mob had formed around the airline desk. Their 10:00 flight to Atlanta never showed, and eventually we were told that our flight was canceled. But not to fret - they had a flight the same evening that would put us in Orlando at midnight! Were they kidding?

    Thankfully we found another flight out of a different city for later that day, so we reclaimed our bags and dragged our tired bodies to our second airport of the day. We wouldn't get to Orlando until 9pm now, but at least we wouldn't waste the hotel room. On the flight down, my Mom's ears started acting up. That would be the beginning of a long week for her.

    Still aggravated by the flight ordeal, we rolled into the Wilderness Lodge around 10:30pm on the 12th. Because we arrived so late, I believe we were assigned the worst room in the hotel - one by the elevator and the ice machine. 2am ice runs must be very popular in Fl. I simply could not believe all of the people who got ice in the early morning.

    I had heard about the hotel renovations, but had not seen them myself. The hallways are so much brighter now.


    Can you spot the hidden Mickeys?




    The new room furniture is not my favorite, especially the headboard. I loved the old mission look from before, and I would never, ever buy this furniture off of ebay.


    Guys, please leave the totem poles in the lobby.

    Despite the earlier mishaps, I was finally in WDW! Tomorrow was a new day, with new adventures awaiting. My destination: the Magic Kingdom.

    Yes more pics! Wish I would have been able to see you the weekend before. I was there on Sunday the 13th! Was a pleasure to meet you though, even for a few moments.

    The carpet isn't too appealing, is it? The Mickeys are kind of cute, but the fake, "stuck on" leaves ruin it for me.

    Sunday, May 13th - breakfast found

    Yep, it was Mother's Day. My mother, however, woke up feeling congested and woozy. The first thing out of her mouth: I want to sleep! Seeing as it was her day, my father and I left her in the room and headed out for breakfast.

    Our first morning. Yay!

    Some of my photos will be different this year because my Dad brought along his big camera lens. When he bought it, he commented on how many awesome shots he could take at Disney this year.

    No Daddy, you're not obsessive about Disney at all.

    We waited for the boat to the Contemporary. From there we caught the monorail to the Poly for breakfast.


    Boat, where are you? I'm hungry!



    How gorgeous is this? The Poly lobby doesn't disappoint.


    Tiki man through the flowers

    We Kona Cafe! On the way in, we passed by Kona Island. I had to snap a picture of the Mickey cookies. Too cute!




    Are you drooling yet?

    Kona Cafe is our favorite spot for breakfast.



    I needed some real food, after a whole day of airport bars and coffee. I ordered eggs, but my Dad ordered his old favorite - Tonga Toast. Plus we had plenty of heavenly Kona coffee. Coffee coffee coffee! Yum.




    After breakfast, we jumped on the monorail to head for the Magic Kingdom. Up next: our morning adventures in the park. It's time for a haircut!

    Ok so what is Tonga Toast? I've heard of it before but have yet to experience it for myself.

    It is awesome!! I just can't remember what is in/on it! We had it three years ago. Kona Cafe is one of our favorites. The kona coffee there is what turned us into the coffee snobs we are today.
    Great trip report. I can't wait to read more!
