Day 274 in advancing toward meeting up with Mickey Mouse at the Magic Kingdom.
GAH!!!! My plan for today was to book our trips to and from Disney’s Old Key West Resort and Orlando International Airport on Disney’s Magical Express. Can you tell? I’m just a little excited about that! All six of us who are going in October (me, my honey Mike, our son Jake, his wife Eliza, our daughter Emi and her husband James) have finally booked our flights. Once all flights are booked, if you are a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Member (and we are), you can go to the DVC website and book the bus.
Now for those who are not Disneyphiles, Disney’s Magical Express is a free perk that folks staying at Disney resorts are provided. It is literally a FREE ride to and from the airport. (Now I know there are skeptics out there saying, “Oh, you’re paying for it.” And that may be true, but I would stay on property even without this perk, so it feels free to me. And I appreciate it!) 🙂 And on top of that, we can check our luggage in Chicago, and they will deliver it to our room at Old Key West. Can you say, “Holy wah!”? I love it!
So, now we are one step closer to being all ready for our vacation. I hope to write soon about: Disney Vacation Club (it gets me to my happy place), My Disney Experience (an absolutely fantastic planning app), and apples (I have a bone to pick with the apples/doctor saying). Thank for hanging in there with me, my dear readers. Meet you at the Kingdom!
BTW: I am drinking a cup of Starbuck’s coffee from my Magic Kingdom mug, as I type. It arrived yesterday! I LOVE it! Two of my favorite things in one place–Magic Kingdom and Starbuck’s. Yahoo! Ya-le-hoo-lah! Thank you so much, Bro Geno and Sis-in-love Patsy! And thanks to Regina, niece-in-love extraordinare,for picking up an extra mug, just in case. 🙂 Love you guys!
