How could I forget...

THE HONEYMOONERS NEXT DOOR! What a "fun" addition to the trip they were! When the headboard wasn't banging against the wall at all hours, they were out on our shared balcony smoking! Leave it to me to have the only shared balcony on the entire complex and my neighbors be smokers! I wish Disney would clarify this rule better and enforce it...a balcony is NOT a designated smoking area!! Sure, they are outside and not in their room, but there is this little thing called wind direction that almost guarantees within two minutes of them lighting up, I will be able to smell it in my room. As an extreme asthmatic, it's a very serious issue for me. For the three days we shared a wall, I struggled with whether or not I should call the front desk and complain, but after reading numerous "neighbors turn nasty" threads on the DisBoards, I opted against it. I just made sure the heavy blinds were pulled and I slept in the first bed (although my preferred bed when I go with Am, definitely not when I go solo, I prefer to have the bed next to the balcony so that I can see the entire room).

Granted, their headboarding (as I've now started calling it...like it was a sport or something), lasted less than 3 minutes a pop (wonder if she knew that BEFORE she married him?), but I am a very light sleeper and documented no less than 15 wake ups (even during afternoon naps) in those three wonderful days. Can't imagine spending all that money going to Disney World only to spend the entire trip boinking in the room. That's more of an island vacation with a never changing beach landscape that you can see any old time...not an expensive Disney trip.

Luckily, they did leave the day before I did, so I managed some quality balcony time myself as well as at least one uninterrupted night (apparently, they didn't fill the room back up when my "friends" left...probably had patchwork to do on the walls).

NOTE TO SELF: If I ever get married again and we plan to not ever leave the room...don't got to Disney World! Yes, I know I'm a prude, but I think I would have trouble doing it in Disney anyway...kind of like having sex in a church or school or your parents house with your entire family present...UGH!

I'm so sorry that your trip did not go according to plan. I really enjoyed reading your pre-trip posts. Here's hoping your next trip is fantastic, Mum and all.

I about spit my lunch out laughing when I read this part.

I am very sorry so many people were rude. Sounds like they need pixie dust or a swift kick in the ...
