My Life as a Dog

Well, Hello Mickey! Nice to See You Again.

So its been a few weeks now but I thought I'd still update blog. Last month I headed to Orlando with my brother, Ben. This was my 3rd trip with him. Initially I was a little hesitant to go. After all I had been there twice already and this trip would be similar to the last two. Of course I've had a great time every time I've been there. I was just thinking that it might be nice to go someplace else instead. The only problem was that no one was inviting me to go somewhere else. So I agreed to go.

Ben & I flew out late on a Friday night (or maybe I should say Saturday morning.) It was a red eye flight. We tried to get a little shut eye because we were planning on hitting the park when we got to Orlando. We always stay on property. I'm not sure that there is really any place to stay there off property. But with a cast member in the family staying on property is nice. This time it was The Cabins at Fort Wilderness. It was a little different than the last resorts that we've stayed at. Let's just say that my sister-in-law would have had a difficult time if she came along on this trip.

The main reason we were making this trip was because it was going to be Bri's last shift on Disney World's Jungle Cruise since she was making a switch to work at Disneyland. But in the process we hit all the main parks: Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom. We also got to hang with Bri's friend, Michael, who also shuttled us around a bit saving us time on the buses.

Some memorable moments:

  • A Jungle Cruise for 3.
  • Ben sitting in something foul and then Bri getting it on her too.
  • Meeting Michael.
  • A 2 quart Diet Coke refill.
  • A fast pass to the nearest restroom.
  • Instead of waiting an hour for Tower of Terror running into a cast member that new Bri & Michael.
  • Bri's last emotional Jungle Cruise as a skipper.
