Getting there after the weeks or months of planning a Walt Disney World vacation. I
started planning this trip last October and my travel date was May 6-15,
It seemed like a long way away when I first booked it but I have a
countdown widget and would check it every single day. Travel day
arrives and after 2 flights and many hours, I am finally there!
step in feeling like the vacation has started is the Magical Express.
How lovely is it to walk through the airport, get in my first line-up
with less than a 5 minute wait and about 10 minutes sitting watching
cartoons before the bus pulled away. The trip to Disney's Pop Century
takes about 1/2 hour and the video is fun enough that I forget to look
outside when I am riding the bus.
One thing I always do is take a photo of my door number! It may seem
like a silly thing but after a 14 hour theme park day, remembering that
number can be difficult. I was very fortunate, with the help of a
friend, I got upgraded to a room in the 1960's section of Disney's Pop
Century Resort, which means a much shorter walk to and from the bus stop
in the morning and evening. Again, after many hours in a park, that
last little walk being shorter is wonderful.
I also got upgraded to a king-bed room. That little bit extra floor
space is lovely to have and having a whole king bed to myself is
decadent. I was also impressed that I remembered to take this photo
before I unpacked and made a mess.
My room was on the third floor overlooking the hippie dippy pool! While
it was a bit noisy in my room when the pool deck movie was playing from 9
to 10:30 p.m., it quieted down as soon as the movie was over and the
pool closes at 11 p.m.
And this was my staircase of choice, I love the 4 storey high
yoyo's, their only purpose is to cover the stairwells and they do a
great job of it.
