Hi all! I’ve been a long-time lurker on here but have recently started emerging from my cocoon over the last few months. It’s such a fun and welcoming community! I’ve loved reading everyone’s trip reports, and have decided to try my hand at my own. It could be an absolute failure, as I have no idea what my attention span will be once my family arrives . But here goes nothing!
The group on this trip is me (30), DSis (38), and DBiL (32). We’re a bunch of childless millennials . I know it sounds like a weird third wheel type situation, but we travel so well together and honestly DBiL is the brother I always wanted growing up. So we’re all super close and happy to spend some quality time together! I’m flying down from Nashville today (!) and they’re arriving tomorrow morning from Birmingham, and we’ll be there until 4/28.
The reason for the trip: my 30th birthday! We last stayed at Disney (Boardwalk) in 2019 for my BiL’s 30th and had a blast, so I wanted to do the same for mine. Only a different hotel this time - AKL Kidani. We have 2 savanna studio rooms and I couldn’t be more excited. This is a bucket list hotel for me, so there will be lots of squealing and general merriment over any and all animal sightings.
We’re a very laid back bunch, several of the people on here would probably get very bored Disneying with us haha we’re far more focused on food and beverages (both alcohol and non) than on rides. Though there are definitely some rides we love and will absolutely do! But we tend to take a relaxed pace and only have loose plans. And almost definitely no rope dropping.
Looking over this I’ve realized it’s a wall of text so I’m going to stop now! I know this trip report will absolutely pale in comparison to the likes of @OBNurseNH, but I hope it ends up bringing someone enjoyment like so many of the ones I’ve read! Happy Friday!
