My mom and I left Disney yesterday and we’re at a hotel near the airport for a few days, so I’m gonna try to make my posts while we’re here (we’ll see how that goes).
So we left for Orlando on December 28th, 2018.
We took a shuttle to the airport and the driver was a pretty aggressive maneuver-er. He was switching lanes like crazy and just whipping that van around.
We got to the airport about 6 hour before our flight. We expected to spend like an hour waiting for security, but it actually only took like 20 minutes. Our flight was delayed like 3 times, so we sat at the gate.
We made some new friends waiting. There was an older couple next to us, a lady with a 2 year old, a girl who was in the Disney College Program, and a therapist from Puerto Rico. To my mom’s credit, they were all talking to her, not me. I don’t really interact with strangers. I don’t think I said a single thing to like 3 of them.
I wish I was sociable.
The plane boarded about 2 and a half hours after we planned.
I don’t think I’ve mentioned it before but I have a bit of a fear of flying. By a bit of a fear, I mean I stay on the verge of tears for the entirety of every flight I board. Lucky for me, this flight had a ton of turbulence. My butthole didn’t unclench for almost 3 hours.
After being in existential terror for a few hours (and watching the first 4 episodes of season 4 of Curb Your Enthusiasm), we landed.
The Orlando airport is really cool. It’s giant, so you have to take a train from one side to the other. We waited for our luggage for a while and much to our luck, some dudes duffel bag got caught on the edge of the conveyor right in front of my moms suitcase, so we had to wait an extra 10 or so minutes while they fixed the machine. It was kinda cool to see the guys moving stuff around though.
We then took an uber to get to the motel we stayed at overnight before we checked in to our disney hotel.
If you ask my mom about it, she’ll give you a 10 page single-spaced essay about everything wrong with the motel. The greatest hits include: broken mini fridge, staff didn’t know where the room was located, no elevator, right next to a nice hotel (bad juxtaposition), and many more. I guess I’m a pretty easy to please person because I didn’t particularly care. We got there at like 1:00 and had to leave at about 4:30, so I just didn’t sleep and watched animal planet instead.
I’ll end this post by telling you about one of my top 5 dumb moments of the last half of 2018. So before we left the airport I got some little soft pretzel bite dudes to eat at the motel. When we got to the motel, I decided I wanted to eat them warm… Well in the time between buying them and putting them in the microwave, I forgot that I put the change in the bag they gave me my pretzels in.
If you haven’t figured it out yet… I microwaved a quarter.
I didn’t start a fire though, so I think I did fine.
Ok. More posts coming up soon.
Thanks for reading!
