I'm joining in. I love all the old pictures! Those are great.
I know what you mean about leaving later in the day and it driving you crazy. Our flight a couple of weeks ago was at 6:40 and we live about 15 minutes from the airport. It was a long day and my DD never stopped talking about going......all day!
Here's Shelbys photos up to this point in the trip report.. I forgot about needing 10 posts before you can post pics so until she has 10 I'll just add hers..
Here's the First Niagra sign ..
& she also had to take a photo of the Airport sign because it said (Parkway )West & that's where she saw the Jonas Brothers bus
& then we have her infamous turbulence video.. she kept herself amused by taking videos & photos on the plane.. this one she tells of the turbulence. Check out her face at 0:13.. that's her turbulence face...
I left off we were having a later dinner at Pecos Bill.. When we talked to Jamie he told us his college was holding a Bingo & he was attending that night at 10pm.. (Yes, I've got the college kid who doesn't drink or do drugs~ He hates them!) mine plays Bingo on a Saturday night! (& I couldn't be happier/prouder) Jamie was all excited because one of the prizes was an Ipad.
After Pecos Bill we decided to ride.. our plan was ride anything with a short line. Shelby wanted to ride Peter Pan because her goal for the trip was to get a photo of Peter Pan & Wendy in reference to the Jonas brothers line in a song "Peter Pan & Wendy turned out fine" Well, I'm sorry to say that Peter Pan's line was HUGE!!! It had a 45 minute wait
I assured Shelby that we would be back in MK probably several times this trip & she'd get her ride.
We looked & It's a small world had a small line so I suggested we go on there.. Shelby was angry that we wouldn't wait in line for Peter Pan & moaned the entire ride.. ( this would be a norm for the trip.. no wonder I had anxiety attacks)
Jim wanted to see what the line was like for Buzz lightyear & it had a 15 minute wait so we hopped into line.. Again, Shelby started to complain that we couldn't wait in line for Peter Pan but we could for Buzz & told me she wasn't riding with me.. (big whoop!) I had a car all to myself but my score was dismal..
We checked the time & it was after midnight & I was feeling the effects of the long day so I suggested we go back to the resort. I didn't want to deal with the huge crowds leaving the park at the end of the night & waiting for a bus & standing on the bus.
On the ride back to POP Jim & I discussed going to EMH at Epcot the following morning.. we decided to play it by ear & if we were awake we'd go..
Got back to our room & there was no luggage.. I got upset (yes again) & I kept thinking we would have no night clothes for sleeping or worse no clothes for the next day. I didn't know how late bell service delivered DME luggage. Jim & Shelby were stopping at the pop machine to get some drinks & he said he would go to the front desk & see if he could get our luggage.
I sat there trying to get Wi-Fi on my Kindle fire but service was extremely spotty.. I was able to make a FB post & then it cut out & kept saying there were too many people accessing the internet from that location & to try again later.
I also got a call from Jamie that he did win a prize at Bingo.. he won a Pizza Maker.. he was so excited (the oddest things make my kids happy) He was going out the next day to buy stuff to make homemade pizzas.
While we were on the phone there was a knock at the door & I thought Jim had maybe forgotten his key but it was bell service with our luggage.. I still think it was odd that they deliver luggage at 1am.
Jim returned & we unpacked & got ready for bed.. Shelby chose to not unpack & just dressed out of her suitcase for the trip.
Jim was watching TV while I was getting ready for bed & he asked if we had to pay extra for TV.. I laughed & asked why & he said he was serious as we only had appx 10 channels that worked.. (& 4 of them were Disney) the message on the screen kept saying "signal lost" or 'no signal" we finally found USA & fell asleep watching that ( we always sleep with the TV on.. well, Jim & I do.. the kids all shut their TV's off)
I had Shelby set a wake up call for 6am & we'd decide if we were going to do EMH at Epcot
