The following took place on Friday, October 30th, 2015:
The phone rang for my wake-up call. Unlike the previous four days, this would be a sad day for me. Everything was packed up for me to go. Unlike the other days where I was dressed in a T-shirt and shorts, I put on my camouflage pants, shirt, vest, and boonie hat. I bought a lot of souvenirs with me. I originally came with my duffle bag packed inside my large suitcase, but this time I packed my souvenirs in my large suitcase and my clothes in my duiffle bag. After packing my laptop and stuff in my backpack, I headed out of my room, 3418, for the last time.
When I approached the check-out desk, I was greeted by the hotel manager who asked me if I like dressing like a tree (my camouflage clothes). I laughed and told him I used to be in Civil Air Patrol, and he smiled saying he was also in Civil Air Patrol in his youth. Nice to meet a fellow former-cadet! Semper Vigilant! After I got my bill (more like a purchase history since my account paid for everything as I went), I approached the luggage desk and they tagged my luggage for me and took them. Next time I see them will be home.
But first, breakfast! I headed back to Boma and got myself some breakfast. Not only did I have a Mickey Mouse waffle, but a Simba waffle too! In addition, I had strawberries, a chocolate chip muffin, and a doughnut, as well as a tall glass of orange juice. As I ate my breakfast, I noticed the window washers making Mickey Mouse symbols. I finished eating my breakfast, which would be the LAST meal I'll eat at Disney World.
I said my good-byes to the Animal Kingdom Lodge as I walked outside toward the awaiting bus to take me back to the airport.
I boarded the bus. Just like last time, we made stops at the Art of Animation Resort hotel, and the Pop Century Resort hotel.
We arrived back at Orlando International Airport. Good-bye, Magical Express!
In the airport, through security, and towards the trams. There was a point where I thought I lost my boarding pass (despite the staff telling me I can get another one). I managed to find it though.
Back on the tram heading to the terminal!
Inside the terminal, the plane wasn't ready, so I sat and waited, playing on my laptop.
Eventually, my plane arrived, and I waited my turn to board.
Here I am again. I took my seat and waited for takeoff.
Soon, the plane began rolling and out of Orlando International Airport.
As we were flying, I pulled out my laptop and popped in a DVD. This time, I played "The Lion King" which took of a chunk of flight time. I was also taking pictures outside like last time!
And... back home, landing in Bradley International Airport in Hartford, Connecticut.
I re-entered the airport I left four days prior. I eventually met my dad at the pick-up and we waited to get my luggage. Unlike last time, Disney took care of my luggage for me. this time, it was all on me. Oh, and on my way out, I took a picture of this Jaguar which looked pretty cool. That Jaguar car was the last picture I would take for my Disney vacation.
Well, it was a fun four days. Looking back at them made me enjoy it and relive the memories. Someday, I'll go back. As a matter of fact, I plan to make Disney vacations a bi- or tri-annual thing for me! Until then, that was my Disney vacation from Monday, October 26th to Friday, October 30th, 2015.
