Last Disney trip... for a while

Once again we skipped out on Mardi Gras and made our annual trek to Disney World!  The worst part of the trip was the drive - oh the drive!!  Flooding rain the afternoon we left that never let up.  Near gridlock all the way through New Orleans.  Several other instances of stop and go along the interstate.  Accidents.  Construction.  I-75 South was a nightmare, with traffic at a crawl for hours.  The drive home was slightly less uneventful, but we still hit several rounds of being at a dead stop on the interstate.  I'd seriously reconsider driving and just dish out the $2k to fly next time.... whenever that may be.


We had a fabulous time!!!

Saturday, March 2, was our check in day.  We stayed at our usual off-site resort, Windsor Hills.  I went with a 4 bedroom/4 bath house complete with a pool and game room this time.  This has to be one of the best places we've ever stayed at!

Most of Saturday, was sort of a free day.  We were able to drop our luggage off in the morning, then we drove around a bit and did a little souvenir and grocery shopping.  We went back to the house, relaxed and spent some time in the pool.

SUNDAY was a Magic Kingdom day! With parking now $25, we decided to give Uber a try.  We were dropped off at The Contemporary and walked over to MK.  Easy peasy and saved a few bucks and some time going through security!  We arrived on Main Street about 8:30am for rope drop and did not leave the park until 9pm.  Open to close....  Welcome Show to Happily Ever After!   And the kids knocked out nearly every ride they wanted to do.   We used Fast Passes to our advantage (tap, grab, and modify works!!)  Plus, I emailed Disney and complained about the My Disney Experience App crashing on me and they set us up with 24 Fast Passes to use over 2 days, so that helped out a lot!
