It’s finally here!! I did my very first ever trip report on a family trip last April for my 30th birthday, and now it’s time for a 40th birthday one already! (Spoiler alert: not mine)
The what: Disney, duh
The who: me (31), DBIL (34), and DSis (40, will likely be referred to as DS going forward but wanted to clarify it was sister, not son). The three of us travel together super well. And are the dreaded childless millennial Disney adults
The when: today! Through Thursday for the fam and Friday for me
The where: Coronado Springs Gran Destino Tower
The why: my sister’s 40th birthday! She turned 40 just 9 days ago, so this is a milestone celebratory trip
I’m currently sitting in the Nashville airport waiting at my gate and something has been doing a shrill beeping for like 5 straight minutes . They’re also still deplaning the flight before us, so I’m not thinking we’re gonna start boarding in 3 minutes. Hopefully that won’t put us too far behind, I wanna get to Disney y’all!
My sister and BIL don’t arrive for a few hours after me, but that gives me time to go to the desk and ask if our rooms are next/close to each other. And then I’ll go find somewhere to watch the Bama game! It being a noon kick messed up our plans of watching the game together at Disney . But Roll Tide!
The plans for today are get checked in, if rooms are ready drop off bags when fam gets in around 3 (flight lands at 2), then head to HS! I’ve got slinky already, will try to stack a few more rides and we may do HBD.
Oh, some notes about us: we are 100% not rope droppers, and we generally aren’t super ride focused. My sister and I both get occasional motion sickness (her worse than me), and she also has disk issues in her neck so anything jerky is tough for her. Sometimes my BIL and I or just my BIL will ride something without her if it’s really important to us, but we’ll more about food and drinks (I am one of the Nashvillains after all ) and just enjoying the atmosphere. We’re big fans of lounges and pretty/fun restaurants. We’re also pretty terrible Liners/Liner fam in that we’re not super down to the minute planners. We like to get ADRs and loosely plan our days around meals, but have a kind of go with the flow mentality. So apologies if some of y’all find this TR a bit boring!
Woohoo we’re boarding! More in a bit from butt in seat!
