….and those words were never spoken again. We really thought of making this an "easy" trip but then we snapped back into reality and laughed at ourselves for even thinking that was a possibility.
I know my trip is still 16 days away but I couldn’t resist starting my trip report any longer so thought today would be the day! I’m also not a great writer so if you are expecting some amazing trip report, I’m sure to say you will probably be disappointed but I’ll do my best
And we begin….
Cast: Me (Disney Fanatic) and BFF (Disney Fanatic #2)
Dates: Sept 2-7th
Who are we?
We are two friends who love Disney. This is our 5th time going to Disney World together (add 3 more if you include family trips) and to be honest, we already have our next two trips planned (2013 and 2014). Yes, we are a bit obsessed as some may say but we are ok with that. Of course this is a girls-only trip so no husbands, no kids … just two crazy girls who love the Mouse!
This is us last year....I'm the one in white and BFF in gray
Most of our trips have been during Labor Day week so we are used to this time of year. We are also from Texas so heat is part of our everyday life. Here is our plan:
Sept 2 – Travel Day
Sept 3 – DHS*
Sept 4 – Magic Kingdom
Sept 5 – Epcot
Sept 6 - Universal Studios/Magic Kingdom*
Sept 7 – Animal Kingdom/Departure Day
Does that look like a relaxing itinerary to you? It doesn’t to me….makes me kinda tired looking at it actually but we are all for it! We are ready for our 6am wake up calls to go to the gym before a full day at the park……BRING.IT.ON! We will be at rope drop every day and we will close the parks down!!! Ok I’m done Wish us luck!
So now that you guys know where we will be, feel free to stalk us. I’m just kidding…please don’t….unless you’re Josh. HAHA…jk! Maybe!? We are actually super friendly, so if you somehow remember our pretty faces, feel free to say hi.
Anywho…..we are aware that two of our days are not recommended by Josh (*) and I do feel kinda guilty about that but BFF and I are confident in our touring abilities so we are ok with it.
DHS on Labor Day is now our tradition – this is the only park where we will do evening EMH. Why you ask? Because I’m a dork and I like to go to the dance party – don’t judge me if you see me jumping up and down with a whole bunch of 6 year olds at the party…remember, we are all kids at heart. And we are obsessed with ToT – last year we rode it 11 Ĺ times in one day ( Ĺ because it broke down) so we are hoping to break our record again this year.
This is also our first time visiting Universal Studios. Well, that’s a lie, I went once when I was like 11. We are mainly going for Harry Potter; I just want to see what the fuss is all about. We don’t plan on being there all day – obviously, we are hoping to get back early enough for MK and our Kona reservation.
As always we leave Animal Kingdom for last. It breaks our heart because we really love the park but there’s no way we could add an extra day. We promised ourselves that we would make it a “must-do” park next year. We are staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge, does that count for anything? We think so.
And in conclusion….
Needless to say we are super excited. We are counting down the days…..all of our dining reservations are done, our itinerary has been checked and double checked and triple checked and all we have left is to pack.
Next up: Travel Day/Dinner @ Jiko
