Good morning Forum Friends! In case you missed my sneaky announcement in the Countdown Pics thread, here’s the official announcement: I’M GOING TO WALT DISNEY WORLD - TODAY!!!
My countdown for my family trip remains at 72 days here, but in late February I was invited to join an Agent Education Program that my TA agency was offered. Naturally, purely for the sake of research , I jumped at the chance. I’m traveling solo and will be at WDW from today until my 5pm flight on Wednesday. If you’re going to be here too and are interested in trying to coordinate a meet up, send me a message here in TP. I’ll be trying to do things on this trip that I haven’t experienced before, as well as highlighting some of the things that are new or different because of pandemic safety protocols, and will be posting to my business social media accounts throughout.
And of course I’ll be live reporting here! But I’ll be offering an interactive element: Choose My Own Adventure™. Periodically I will come to a point in my plan when YOU will get to decide what I will do next! Purely for the sake of research of course. This means that I have some loose plans, a couple of ADRs, and some things that I really need to accomplish in my TA role but many of the things I do, foods I eat, and experiences I have will be in your hands.
Because some things still do have to be planned in advance I will also have a few points at which you will guess what I do next. How well do you know me? We’ll find out!
The day so far has been smooth and uneventful. Bag check and security lines looked long but moved very fast. I upgraded my boarding position at the Gate using my Southwest card benefit and moved from B35 to A1.
The flight was totally full - actually oversold (they offered $ to give up my seat but um, no!), but pushed back right on time and was relatively smooth all the way down except for final approach which was hella turbulent
We, just landed a short bit ago, 15 mins ahead of schedule! I’m home
Welcome to Orlando!
