Default My precious bride LOVES ILLUMINATIONS!!

I’ll fill in as I can, and complete this trip report when we get home...... hopefully Wednesday!

With the impending doom due Illuminations, Sweetie was lamenting the fact that it is her favorite thing at Walt Disney World. So, we began discussing a trip. When rooms were available and Delta prices weren’t outrageous, it looked like a solid maybe. Then, when Mercy Me was listed as an act at American Gardens Theatre..... we set the wheels in motion. Everything, including coveted fastpasses and dining ARR’s fell smoothly into place.
Then......!!!!!!..... Dorian. So, we did what many sensible sane adults would do. We considered canceling. Then we added a day to get in ahead of the storm. Then we added another day at Epcot, fastpasses and dining as well.

Well, we’re here.

Pictures, lots of pictures, and story to follow..... I hope you do too. We

So glad you get to have an Illuminations farewell, too. It's Jim's favorite show and we went last week specifically to say "goodbye."

I hope you have a great trip and the weather doesn't create any problems that can't be solved by pixie dust!

Dirk

Both of our flights we were upgraded to first class, thanks to sweeties Delta status!



Paige didnít get her picture taken, but she was wonderful! Gave up her spot in the coat closet so a couple of newbie fliers didnít have to plane side check their carryon bags.
