Walt Disney World October 2011 Part 1

Updated on June 18, 2017

We went to Disney World. Short version, it was awesome. But, I'll break it down to a day by day, play by play for you. I'll tell you tips, tricks, hints and secrets to help you on your trip. There will be rants and raves. But hopefully it wil help you make your experience as magical as possible.

The vacation started at the Branson Airport. Security was awesome. They were quick and polite. Got to love it. We waited for the boarding by eating at Famous Dave's Barbecue. We had the onion strings. Holy Cow amazing. What a fabulous way to start a week worth of gorging myself stupid.

The flight was AirTran. It was good. On time. Easy flight. Nice flight attendants. We were able to check one of our carry ons for free. Which is super awesome.

We used the Disney Magical Express. They picked up out checked bag for us and transported it to the hotel room for us. We boarded a Magical Express bus that took us right to the Boardwalk. Check in was easy. Now, considering my parents were meeting with us the next day, we had an odd situation. We would have had to check out then check back in the next day. They said they would take care of it, we wouldn't have to do anything, we could stay in the same room, and they would see if my folks could be on the same floor with us fairly close. And you know what? They delivered. In abundance. They explained the food plan to us. They showered my daughter with tattoos and stickers and called her Princess. Simply awesome.

Our park hopper tickets didn't kick in till the next day, so we just hung out at the hotel. Which was ok since they had marshmallow roasting, free arts and crafts, loads of street entertainment like jugglers and magicians.

So overall, the first day was amazing. A wonderful start to a wonderful trip. I've written about the Boardwalk before. I can't say enough great things about it. Or Disney World.

Tomorrow I'll give you the second day run down. Which is way better than day one. Trust me. I was there.
