: Time to compile our Disney trip report  ... Here's what we compiled from our notes during the trip.

The Disney Blog – November 2007

 

Nov. 9th – Friday: We flew out of Logan in the evening via Jet Blue  and arrived on time at Orlando Airport without any problems. We took the Disney Magical Express from the airport to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort (CBR), checked in, and were in our room by midnight. The two packages from home (clothes & HBA’s) were delivered to our room within 10 minutes of arrival, as were the groceries that we had ordered from home. With the travel & setup logistics out of the way, we were ready for 8 days of parks & attractions!

 

Connor says: “The airplane ride was great because I had my own TV. Orlando Airport was very great.

 

Nov. 10th – Saturday:  We didn't exactly sleep in after arriving late Friday night, but at least we weren't in a rush to get to the park. We spent a casual day at  Disney's MGM Studios. With a little luck, a lot of earnestness, and a wiggle to the front row, Connor was chosen to participate in a Jedi training session first thing in the morning. He had a blast working on his light saber moves and then testing them against Darth Vader himself!  Don, Connor & Maeve hit the Star Tours ride afterwards, then we all had an outdoors lunch at Pizza Planet. After lunch, we all went on the Great Movie ride. While Caeley napped with Don, Erin took Connor & Maeve back on Star Tours and then to the Muppets show. We managed to get Buzz & Woody's autograph afterwards. We then enjoyed dinner at Mama Melrose's. The Spectacle of Dancing Lights display was already illuminated when we got out of dinner & it was pretty impressive - wouldn't want to pay that electric bill. Don, Connor & Maeve hit Star Tours one more time, followed by another family trip on the Great Movie ride. Finally, we closed the night with Don & Connor riding Aerosmith's Rock'N'Roller Coaster !!

 

Connor says: “I got to go on 2 new rides - rock and roller coaster and the great movie ride. I really liked Jedi training because I got to battle Darth Vader with a light saber.”
