Dopey Trip Report - January 5, 2011

I made it safe and sound to Orlando. The flight was uneventful, except for the bumping along the whole way. Nothing bad just some turbulence.

Once in Orlando I managed to get my luggage and make my way to Disney's Magical Express.

On the bus there was a very nice woman in the front that asked if I was running in any of the events. There were four or five of us that had a great conversation about what to expect in the races, all the support you get, etc...It really made me realize just where I was and what I was in for and I can't wait.

Then right before we were heading out, I turned around and who was sitting in the row right behind mine on the other side of the bus? Jonathan, Amber, Elizabeth and Jonathan's Mom! I had to say - hey, I think I know you :)! What a nice surprise to see Jonathan and finally meet Amber and Elizabeth and Jonathan's Mom! This made for a nice bus ride as we made our first stop at Wilderness Lodge and then on to the Contemporary.

I was able to go right up to the desk, actually right to the concierge. Bobby helped get my packet and make sure everything was in order since I had already done the online check in. I was done and on my way over to Bay Lake Tower within three-four minutes. It was a short walk over and up to my room.

Bay Lake Tower is my home resort, but I had never even seen the model rooms...I was very excited as I opened the door to my room and stepped in for the first time. Wow - I am in love with this room. It's (0f course) very contemporary and very nice. I am very impressed by the studio and really like it a lot. I have a theme park view room, but I don't really get to see much of the theme park unless I go out on the balcony. I have a perfect view of the monorail going in to the Contemporary and I am on the same level as the walkway so I have a good view of that as well. Not the best view I've ever had, but still pretty nice.

I settled in my room, unpacked and just checked the room out for a little while. Then I headed over to get some water and dinner from Contempo Cafe. I grabbed a burger (I know, not very healthy) and headed back to my room to unwind. I had a nice dinner, have watched some TV and checked in with work.

It's about time for bed now. I may try to get a couple miles in tomorrow just to loosen up the legs and look around a bit and then I'll be heading to the Expo first thing to get all my packets picked up!

I think it is just fine to go "off diet" at WDW, so have a great time.

Don't worry about eating that burger!
