Leaving!

Well here it is 10 am and I have to leave. All I have to say is that "I'm out of here!" Out of the 11 trips I have made to Walt Disney World this is the worst trip ever! The All Star Resorts are far from the parks wi]ell the closest park is Animal Kingdom, So it means long bus rides. If you leave after fireworks or closing you will be waiting in long line. A bus can only hold so many people and they stuff as many as they can. It can be up to 2-3 buses before you can get on one. There are a lot of tired kids and parents. It make a very hard run back to the resort. Disney have bought bigger buses but that does do anything to help the problem,


Disney has a lot of problems that they need to work out. Other than the bus, is the Wi Fi. Since they rolled out the Magic Bands they have made the Wifi open to everybody, There is a app that has everything to help you stay. So having a Smart Phone is a good thing. There are places that you can look and book you Fast Passes. Having it on your Phone is a big saver. You can also check your photos. Here is the down side. If you don't have a current Phone you can be out of luck, That is what happen to me. I have a Samsung S4. I used the app on my last trip but this time it had a update and it didn't work on my phone. So I couldn't check my Fast Passes or photos. That was one big pain in the butt. I had to go to the Fast Pass places to check passes and make new one. I had to wait until I got back to my room to see my photos. This is very up setting. I found out last night that some of my photos didn't make it on my band. They were the photos with Baymax. This is a drag. If I knew that they didn't show I could have gone to the Photo Pass store and located them.

My take on the Resort. Over all it is a So So place, You get what you paid for. The room was clean. One night I spilled so sauce on the bed. The next day it was cleaned. They just cleaned the spot didn't change the sheets. Other than that Mouse keeping was fair.

The Cast Members: They were very friendly. They would go out of their way to help. I have run into a rude cast member. It was a woman that was at the place you could check in your bags to be taken to the airport. I had told the woman about one time I checked my bag early and that my bags were put on a early flight. She told me that they would be on my flight.

I wished that I could have written every day but the wifi suck. That is a big problem that NEEDS to be fix.

It's going to be another long 8 hour flight. I have to wait until 3 pm before I can take the bus to the airport. Sometimes I can ask the bus Driver if I can take a early bus. We'll see.

I'm glad to go home. it's be a long week. I will be take 10 months to a year off. So I'm letting the AP go and starting a new one when things get better.

Last Day

Here it is my last day here. And all I can say it was BAD! When I first came to WDW I stayed at All Star Music and that stay wasn't great either. The people here were friendly, My room was OK I have had better. As for my next stay I will go back to Pop Century. To get any where is a long bus ride except when going to Animal Kingdom.

My days in the park was fun. I didn't stay until closing like I have in the past. It has gotten crowed over the years. When I went to The Christmas Party I was hoping to spend a lot of time there but left after a couple hours. I wanted to see characters  but the lines for them were long and I didn't want to spend all my time waiting.

This year Disney gave a 20% discount for the 45th anniversary so I did a lot of shopping. The things that I bought were the high ticket stuff. These were things that I have been looking at for years.

Every year I buy my two gift cards. I spend all of the Shopping Card Gift Card and have some money left on the Food Card.


Too sum up my stay. Is to say that I didn't have that relaxing time. It didn't help with chasing my depression away.

As for when my next trip it will be late 2017 or 2018 depending on money and the way that the country will go with the new Leader.


I hope for my next trip I will be at POP and have a better Wifi so I can write my during then trip.


I will NOT stay at All Star Music ever again!

Day Two

Today was a OK day. The outcome of this election depresses me. I started of having a good day. I went to the Studios id did my two fast passes and then headed to Epcot for something to eat.

I had some great food. I went the Greece, Morocco and Canada. I had the  Cheese Soup. It was good. It had a bit of a kick to it. It has Moose Head Beer in it. After eating I walked around World Showcase. I stopped into some shops to look around to see what I like to buy, I went into Japan and saw a Money Cat that I would like to add to my collection. I also stop in Norway and saw a Elsa and Anna that was a pretty, I plan on going back later to buy them,

I stayed at the resort for the rest of the evening since tomorrow I have a tour at 8 AM. I going on The Keys to the Kingdom. It's a tour I have wanted to do for a long time. Since I went on In Walt's Footsteps at Disneyland in 2012 I really had a great time most of the things that I heard I already knew about. The best thing was going in Walt's apartment. I had been trying to get Keys but it was sold out and hard to get. At 100 days before I call to book it and got it, I'm looking forward to hearing about the story behind The Magic Kingdom.

Since I stayed in tonight. I thought maybe Swag Bucks would work but that was a big NO. I won't be able to get my SB's while I'm here. It depressing but the WiFi sucks here. So my evening was watch TV.
Now depressing has hit. this Election didn't go well. Now I'm starting to worry of what is going to happen with the new president. I fear of losing my benefits. It could happen but I know that it won't happen,


I have been tying to get been trying to get some sleep but nothing is working. It's too late to get something to eat. I have put on some music. I hope that will help. TV isn't that great.

Maybe doing to surfing online will help.

Day One

Yesterday was my travel day. It was a long day for me. It started at 7 am at TIA. It was a long flight. It took 8 hours. Getting to the resort was easy. I;m giving this resort a second chance. And the odds of me staying here again is very slim.I got type of room that I wanted. I wanted a room in Calypso Building and I got a room on the ground floor. The room has a king size bed. It nice. The buses suck but this cheap place,

It wifi is another down side. It's not fast. So I won't be able to do my SB's like I wanted to.

Another downer is the smart phone that I have the app doesn't work. So i won't be able to make my FP's with the phone.

Today I'm heading to The Studios. Then in the afternoon to Epcot and the evening at The Magic Kingdom since they are open until 1 am.

I hope the rest of my day goes better. The morning suck.

Last Minute Packing

Here it s the day before I leave for WDW. Yesterday I got my food and snack that I want to take. I like to   take bottle of juice for my breakfast. It's good to take something for breakfast so you don't have to buy breakfast.

I have a lot of cables for the things that I need to charge. I also have a wireless speakers  so have can listen to my music

I have also look at what the weather is going to be like. The weather is good and there is no chance of rain. But I'm still bringing my umbrella.

Great thing is that I can get my boarding pass today. I hope to get a good number. My first leg is to Vegas. I only have 55 minutes there. Hopefully I will have time to make a pit stop and stretch my legs. The second leg has a stop in Kansas City but I don't have to change planes then off to MCO. Tomorrow it going to be a long day. Tonight I won't be sleeping to much.

I will be doing my Swag Bucks during my trip. Since the start of SB is 12 PST so  that is 3 EST. I have my laptop so I can get my SB. I do the videos and I do the ones that can run by themselves so I can do them when I take a shower or going to the Food Court to fill my mug.

Packing

I have a couple days to go! Now it's time to get things ready to pack my bag. I go with two bags. One carry on and one that is checked but when I come home I come back with three. I put a small case in the checked bag so I will have a bag for the shopping that I do. This trip is my 11th so I know how to pack for WDW.
When I pack my bags I bring a bit more than for the days that I'm there. The weather in Florida is a bit crazy. It can be hot during the day and cold at night so it helps to bring more. I like to Disney Bound. So that is a extra outfit. It took me a while to put the look together. I like Elsa.

My luggage is Disney luggage. I have Disney pick up my bag but if I have to pick up my bag from Luggage Claim I can easily find my bag.
