Good morning all, feels like it should be sometime in the afternoon but no it’s just about 6am. I guess that’s what happens with you set the alarm for the middle of the night.
So some introductions, long time lurker, I kinda obsessively read the forum but only have posted myself a handful of times over the years. The amount of info I get from everyone is amazing and pretty much always answers any questions or issues I might have. So I have been to DW 14 times over the years since I was a kid. Once I became an adult, I went quite frequently until I started dating my husband in 2015. To put it in perspective, between 2015 and now, I have only been back twice. Why you might ask, well what changed in 2015, oh yeah my husband. He just just not that magical. I mean I love him to death but we definitely have different views when it comes to Disney.
So back to the present, this is my first SOLO trip! I do not have anyone holding me back or anyone to pacify and make sure they are ok. Our DD7 has been kept out of the secret and does not know where I am headed to. So you might remember a post or 2 from me talking about conferences at DW. I am still in shock as I sit in the airport that my conference for work is still happening. The original trip, like many others has been scheduled and rescheduled more times than I can remember. It’s not a huge conference, just a “training” session for the union I am a member of, well not just a member but a Chairmen also.
So we are staying at CSR, preferred rooms. My meetings are only Wednesday and Thursday, but I added a couple of days prior and headed there today, like right now. Flying out of Philly. I know I asked some silly questions about only traveling with a carry on and oh my what a difference. So much less stress.
Well, we are boarded and just about to push back from the gate. 7am departure and it’s almost right on the dot. I was happy to have an aisle seat, empty middle seat, 3rd row to make a quick escape to make my way to ME.
