So we are off to Florida again, this time it’s just Grandma myself and the grandson I thought. Seems Tanner and Sandy and uncle Nick and Joyce would be meeting up there. The flight was not as bad as I thought even with American changing my wife’s flight, that meant I had to herd a 10-year-old across the country.
The grandson was so excited to meet Mickey and on I think the first night we had dinner with all the characters at 9pm, grandpa was so tired.
As for the park itself, the scam that everyone knows about it being expensive is so true. I could have taken 2 European vacations for the price of one trip to Disney World. One of the good things if now you can get adult drinks in all of the parks.
We also got a chance to take him ( and me ) to the Kenady Space Center, it was another hot and humid day so not to much time was spent there. I think Donta liked it after he saw The Atlantis shuttle.
All in all, it was a good week I would suggest a break in between the days of any visit. Donta did not mind hanging out at the pool and they show movies there also. Our room was at the almost end of the “resort” and I use that word loosely so after a few days Donta wanted to go to the room by himself. After a wrong turn and a point in the right direction, he found it.
Well, the end of the year has come and gone and the next 2 vacations are already set up. This year is about the kids the first part of the year, Disney World is the first trip ( have I told you how I feel about Florida ). The grandson was impressed with air flight on his first flight until he found the in-flight entertainment.
The next trip will be back to Rome with my son Damein Berry, this will be his first time to Rome and he is bringing the girlfriend Emma Christmas. Her first time to Europe and Italy. She has been hinting that a ring would be so romantic in Italy. It’s a trap.
My hope for this trip is after showing them around a bit taking some time in a cafe to sit and relax. Damein picked up the tube in London so fast the subway in Rome will be no problem.
Set up a small trip to Phoenix for Sandy’s birthday and the new years holiday and our American Airlines flight was delayed by 20 mins. No big deal it’s only a few mins, not long after the delay turned into “sorry your flight is not leaving till tomorrow”. When I called and explained where I needed to be and when ( Tucson by 11 ) They said the best they could do was 6PM on Saturday. That was not going to work. And this is not the first time American Air has screwed up my flights.
I found out from Tanner if it was not an act of GOD American could have made arrangements on another airline for us to get to our destination by FAA rule. I didn’t know this and had already canceled the original flights to and from. The rep from American never told me this, so I called them back. The “supervisor” said because she didn’t hear the conversation she could not help, she did acknowledge that was the rule but could do nothing.
Just to make a long story short avoid American Airlines due to incompetence in my opinion and let’s drive them into the ground for bad leadership.
