Vacation Day 12

We are so lucky and as you have probably noticed we tend to have fantastic days. Not today. I swear when I woke up this morning I just felt like something was going to go wrong. Fred was flying into Orlando today and I always worry when he's flying. So I figured I was just being a worry wort. Then the trouble started. Fred's first flight was delayed. Which lead to his connecting flight being delayed. We had tickets for a 6pm show and he really needed to make it here in time. So I was a worried wreck about that. Then we only had an hour of travel time today. It was an hour of pure hell I tell you that. We got on a toll road and this guy behind us decided we weren't going fast enough I guess so he threw a hissy fit. Of course just throwing his arms and cussing would have been better than driving like a total maniac. He pulled in front of us and slammed on his brakes multiple times. Then he flew side to side in the lane and then passed us on the left to get behind us. I assume he was taking down our license plate number which I was like go ahead cause you are the one in the wrong dude. Then he flew around us again and tried to make us pull over. Yeah right dude! He was insane. It was crazy. Scared all of us really bad. Then of course we have to pull up to a toll booth and he's right in front of us. We were so worried he was going to get out of his vehicle and try to approach us. But he moved his anger to the people in front of him at the booth because they weren't getting through the booth fast enough. Boy he was a real winner. As if that wasn't bad enough after all that chaos we hit really bad traffic going through Orlando. We finally arrived safe and had some problems with our check in process because they wanted to valet park our van. Well that's fine but I would like to be able to get a few things out later. They let us but made it a major to do. So we took some deep breathes and tried to stop freaking out and took a bus to Downtown Disney since our room wasn't available yet. We had a delicious lunch at Trex Cafe (kind of like Rain Forest Cafe if you know them). It was fantastic and finally our day started to get better. Our room was ready so we came back and got everything moved in. Fred landed safely finally 4 hours later than he was supposed to and we were able to make our show...
It was amazing! We keep saying we can't find a word to describe it. Wonderful. Spectacular. Wow. Unbelievable. Best Ever!! It was our first time at Cirque Du Soleil show and it was worth every penny for the tickets. So at least it was a great end to our yucky day. But tomorrow starts our Disney park hopper fun. We can't wait. We are ready to start fresh.

  1. What an amazing end to an awful day. We had only see Cirque on TV, they showed a whole series of their shows recently, Incredible is the only way to describe them!
    Road rage is scary, you did well to keep calm. Was the toll booth manned, you could have reported him there?

  6. Oh, I do feel sorry for you having such an awful journey, especially when most of it was caused by just one person. But it sounds as though Fred's safe arrival and the show made up for it. :)
