ooops--i said 'more soon' almost TWO MONTHS AGO! what is WRONG with me? i promise i will finish this asap. and i just started a new one for my next trip (five days from now) over on the globetrotting boards. sorry!!!
ok...so i guess i should start from the beginning of the trip itself, as i really only posted on here a few times DURING the actual trip. which is funny because i had wifi the whole time...but whatever! first i've thought of a fun way to do this trip report--tell me what you think. before we left, i wrote descriptions of what we'd be doing each day. like narrative descriptions that look like this...
Early this morning, Tracy will board a plane bound for Orlando International Airport (which, for some reason that Tracy does not understand, is abbreviated MCO…?) [Melissa's Note: It's abbreviated from its former name: McCoy Airforce Base.] Upon landing and taking the tram to the main terminal, she shall board a Magical Express Bus bound for Animal Kingdom Lodge. Ideally she will be there before noon.
Tracy’s not sure what she’s going to do from noon until around 2:00 when her mother arrives from Vero Beach. It might involve traveling to Animal Kingdom for a Yak Attack and a ride on Expedition Everest, but Tracy isn’t sure yet. It might also just involve hanging out watching the animals on the savanna. Or taking a dip in the pool if she can check in at this time–and if it warm enough.
But whatever Tracy does, she’s not going to have a big lunch. Why? Because Tracy and her mother have 3:45 lunch/dinner reservations at The Brown Derby. This is part of the Fantasmic package that they’ve booked, so after dinner the two of them will explore DHS–a park that Tracy’s mom has not spent that much time in yet–and then head on over to the 7:00 showing of Fantasmic.
After Fantasmic, Tracy’s mom (hereby referred to as ‘Peggy’, because that’s her name) will likely return to the resort to sleep. Tracy will likely return to Victoria Falls lounge for a drink and some quality time with the 3G on her iPhone.
i thought it would be fun to post each day's plans followed by what ACTUALLY happened. because you know it's never the same as what you planned. thoughts on this anyone? and should i start a new thread for this TR or just keep going here?
Goody! love the format (cuz it's too true about best laid plans and all)
I haven't been on the boards in forever and just thought....wonder whatever happened on Tracy's trip? I bet I can go on and sink my teeth into a complete TR from start to finish (which I love to do) but it looks like I'll be waiting between posts ....bring it on!
