Hi to all. I thought I would get a few things in about this trip. There will be pictures in our report along with our thoughts.
Many things have happened and its only the 2nd day we have been here and first day in the parks - MK, that was today.
We got up at 5:am on 3/8 and my Andrea went to work at the school and I had to do some running around to take care of some things before we left. Fast forward to later that day, Andrea gets off work, comes home, we finish getting things ready and get the car packed up. We live in the middle of Kansas and had to drive to Denver for our flight. We got a late start and ended up getting at the airport just before 1:00am on 3/9. Our Southwest flight was scheduled to leave at 5:00am, we got thru the check in and TSA and headed to the gate, this took about 30 minutes. Flight was sold out and no open seats so sleeping on the plan was not going to happen much. We arrived at MCO and proceeded to Disney Magical Express. We scanned our bands and were directed to the line. We stood in this line for about 15 minutes. We stayed at All Star Movies and the bus was going to stop at all 3 All Star resorts, with ours being the 3rd.
We tried online checking and, well our room wasn’t ready. Our room category is a Preferred room, and had requested a king as we only need the one bed. Well, we went to find out was there anything they could do to get us checked into a room so that we could at least get cleaned up for our 5:30pm reservations at V&A Chef’s Table. After the CM was on the phone for about 30 minutes, finally we were told that there was a Queen room that was that was refurbished. I looked at my wife and she said take it so I took it. We took it and opted out of the housekeeping.
While Andrea was talking a shower, I called the spas and was able to get Andrea an appointment to get here hair washed, died and styled for 2pm but that would mean no nape before the 530pm reservation at V&A. She used a Lyft to get there and loved who they took care of her. I took a shower and got ready and took a Lyft there. We walked around GF and took it in. Oh, I also had to buy a Monster Energy drink before we went upstairs. We both were tired as by this time it has been. Finally we went upstairs about 5:10pm and ended up relaxing right outside at the tables and chairs. Lana from V&A came out, verified some information adn let us know what was going on. At 5:30pm, she came back out and we were led inside. This is where I will stop for right now, as I am tired, however I am including some pictures, which include the menu that we were presented at V&A Chef’s Table.
Hope you are looking forward to the rest of this meal at the Chef’s table at V&A, along with our other days. (Teaser, we have EMM for MK Fantasyland and EMM for HS TSL and lets just say that there was a big surprise for us for the EMM at Fantasyland on 3/10 but you will have to wait)
I look forward to doing this report.
