Joining in!! I'm so excited to read all about this trip!
I am spoiled by super long Disney trips now and wish I could go that long all the time lol. It was definitely a busy long trip lol!I'm in and can't wait to hear about all of your adventures! Super-long Disney trips are the BEST! (And my goodness, you packed a lot into your trip! Two holiday parties, multiple days at Universal, AND a Disney race?! I'm impressed!)
They worked out great! I'll post a picture at some point (I'm too lazy to get up now to take one lol). i have a whole set of fabric markers that I got at Michael's when we did an autograph pillowcase but of course I forgot to pack them so we ended up getting new fabric markers at Walmart lol.Wait i lied!
I have a 3rd thing i NEED to know! how did the ears work out? What pens did you use? Very important
Ok Fabric markers it is!!They worked out great! I'll post a picture at some point (I'm too lazy to get up now to take one lol). i have a whole set of fabric markers that I got at Michael's when we did an autograph pillowcase but of course I forgot to pack them so we ended up getting new fabric markers at Walmart lol.
it is actually not a character heavy trip which is why I went with the ears!The ones we bought have both a thin tip and a thicker tip- I 100% recommend that! It came in handy when the characters needed to sign smaller once the ears were getting full so they could sign smaller!
Like many trip reports do, this one starts days before we actually got to WDW.
Oh, no!Instead, I overslept and had to rush to dinner with my family for my dad's birthday.
Interesting. Most guys I know pack... if they're really organized... the night before a trip.Being the organized one in the relationship, Mike had been packed for days.
Nice of her...our night assistant manager organizes brunches for the night staff a few times a year
… but that's really not cool.she laid the guilt trip on when I tried to cancel.
Good Lord!So, I left work at 3 am, had to go to brunch at 11 am and back to work at 3 pm.
I only slept a few hours after leaving work at 3 am before waking up to get all the last minute stuff packed and go to work!
So not surprised.I was EXHAUSTED and fell asleep within 5 minutes of being in the car.
Only an hour? Yeah, I guess adrenaline will do that.I napped for about an hour and when I woke up, the Disney excitement finally hit and I was wide awake.
You must have made Mike so happy.I alternated between sleeping, singing at the top of my lungs and complaining that there's nothing interesting to see on I-95.
I like to group all my stops into one: get gas, pee, get a drink, get a snack, stretch your legs and move on. In 2017, I thought it was Mike's goal to visit every rest stop ever made.
Woot!I'm happy to report that my incessant nagging about how annoying I found this has broken him of this habit.
Um... shouldn't every rest stop be clean? It's a sad comment that they have to advertise that.Somewhere around 4 am we were in Virginia and stopped at this proud rest stop.
Yeah...This sign was in the bathroom which made me uneasy.
… exactly the same thoughts I was having when I saw your photo.But I also have a lot of questions like who is this person that put up the poster? Who knows who is on the other end when you call the number? And all the little slips are gone so why isn't the number on the paper itself because now no one can get help?
Was there room for people???In case anyone was wondering, this is what the car looked like.
Never had Arby's! Really!I'd never had Arby's before but it was a solid fast food option.
So not surprised to hear that.Pretty sure I showered and crashed much earlier than everyone else.
Well, actually...Who knew 16 hours in a car could be so exhausting?
Oh dear...Next day: we make it to Disney with a meltdown on the way
