Default Back to Beach Club trip report

Who: Sherryberry (that's me!), Beerfan (Kenneth), Christy (my sister), Danita (friend, who's really like family to us - she came with us last September), Joey (Danita's husband), Buzz and Dakota (the pups)

When: August 26 - September 3

Where: Kenneth and I will be at the Beach Club, in a studio.....Christy, Danita, and Joey will be at Bonnett Creek, in a two-bedroom....Buzz and Dakota will be at Best Friends

Here we go! If you read my last trip report, you might remember that Kenneth and I camped at Fort Wilderness in a tent. This time, we are staying at the Beach Club (yay! to having our own toilet and shower). We're pretty excited about staying here - it's been a while since we were here, and we just love that area (and the Beach Club is one of our home resorts).

After working all weekend, we got home Sunday evening and started packing and Kenneth did some yard work (so we don't come home to a jungle). We ended up not getting to bed until about 11:00. We had all agreed to meet at 3:30 am, at Krispy Kreme, and try to be on the road by 4:00. So, Kenneth and I set the alarm for 2:00 am, got up and finished packing and got the car loaded, and pulled into the Krispy Kreme parking lot by about 3:40. After getting coffees and some donuts, we were able to hit the road by 4:00, in our three-car motorcade.

Kenneth predicted that I would be sound asleep by the time we hit the Suwannee exit (three exits from where we live!), but I'm still going! Thanks Krispy Kreme coffee:

Following along. I love the early morning drives to Disney - even the hundreds of miles on 75 south (we are also in the metro Atlanta area)! We are lucky to get on the road by 5:30 - 4:00 is so ambitious.
