Who: Jsanta26, DH and DD6
When: Jan 22-26
I’ve very happy to be back in the bubble after months of hybrid schooling, staffing shortages at work, Dog injuries and expensive surgeries, and overall winter weather in New England.
I hope you enjoy my trip report!
Our check in date was last night (Friday). We flew out of Boston on a 4:40 flight and arrived at MCO at around 7:45. I don’t usually pick a later flight, I prefer the first one in the AM, but we wanted DD to at least go to school since she was actually In person that day. She informed me she let the cat out of the bag and told the teacher, vice principal and the principal she was being dismissed early to go to Disney luckily they seemed to all wish her fun.
The flight down was ok. We flew jet blue and everyone complied with mask wearing. Our plane was an older one with not a many bells and whistles, and the TVs didn’t work at all (luckily we had the WiFi and tablets) DD6 worked on some lessons she will miss next week, and I tried to catch up on some TV. Oh and did I mention the plane I was on was called GO JETS ? It was painted jets green and had the JETS logo on it. As a lifelong Patriots fan I almost puked
When we arrived at MCO I was pleasantly surprised with the mask compliance. We headed down to DME and immediately boarded. Ten minutes later we were off.
Luckily, CBR was the first stop. I didn’t get my “you’re room is ready” text until almost 9 pm (it finally came when we were on DME). I grabbed my Instacart order from guest services and we headed to our room. I requested Jamaica room 4553 and that’s the room we got (thanks TP!) DD and DH haven’t stayed here before and they seem to like it so far. She immediately called “dibs” on the pull down 5th sleeper. My only complaints so far are that none of the built in USB ports work for charging, so we had to scramble to find our usb blocks and search for outlets to plug them in, and that The room I’m in is directly under the skyliner. It didn’t occur to me to think of that, but we noticed a cyclical humming outside every time a sky oven went by overhead. DH wasn’t happy about it, but the noise is really minimal in the room and you can only hear it if you listen for it. It’s good to know for future trips though.
So DD6 FINALLY went to bed around 10 pm, and we all tried to go to sleep fairly quickly. I work normally until midnight so a 10 pm bedtime is a bit tough, but I finally fell asleep. Fast forward until 5 am and now I’m completely awake
So I figured I’d get my trip report started.
This morning we have breakfast at Topolino’s Terrace and after we will be heading to EPCOT. My goal is to see expressions de France since it’s a bucket list item I alway end up missing. I have my food list of snacks I want to try and DD6 can’t wait for Soarin’ . I’ll post pics later!
