Going Home To Tamaqua PA Via Disneyworld

Fred and Sue showed us their
2016 Mercedes Camper

We arrive in Disneyworld just in time of the 3 PM parade.
We are on our way home to Tamaqua PA for the funeral. We had a few other things scheduled for the week - and decided to try to fit them all in - before we boarded the jet to Allentown PA.

First we had a visit scheduled with Fred and Sue. They own a 2016 Mercedes camper we are interested in. They were driving from Sarasota to Orlando and it was an opportunity for us to test the camper. We had a nice visit with them at noon on Monday.

The camper is wonderful with only 8000 miles on it. They are asking $68000 for it. It sleeps six and has a full bath room and kitchen. It is a diesel with diesel generator. After driving it about 20 miles we had to move on.

Next we checked into our Disney All-Star Hotel. We had some Florida resident discounts that provided us rooms for $49 a night and 3 day passes to the parks for $138 each. If we did not show up - we lost much of our money. After checking in to our hotel - we entered the Magic Kingdom at about 3 PM. The park was not real busy - but our energy tanks were running low. We rode on many rides and attractions - and made it to the fireworks and closing at 10 PM. We both crashed into our beds at 11 PM - Lulu after a short swim in the Disney pool.

It is 9 AM on Tuesday as I write - we had a good night sleep. We will go into EPCOT today - not staying real late tonight.

Wednesday morning at 7 AM we have a flight to Allentown to catch. We will have to wake up at 4 AM - just to be safe.

This is the first time in a long time we will be flying straight to Allentown from Florida. Usually we have to go through Atlanta - Charlotte - or Philadelphia. Allegiant Airlines has a no frills flight from Sanford for $300 round trip each. This is the first time we are paying for a bag too :-)  We had to buy last minute due to the funeral - and it was the best way from Tallahassee.

We will be in Tamaqua from Wednesday to Saturday - staying in Lulu's old bedroom.

Saturday - depending on how we feel - we have one last Disney Pass. We will either spend the day in Disneyworld or just drive straight home to Tallahassee.

At short notice - we are pleased with the trip so far. We have to pace ourselves a bit better. Yesterday we walked 7 miles - woke up at 6 AM - and were going solid to 11 PM.

We are looking forward to seeing family and friends back in Tamaqua for 4 days.

Very nice toilet and shower
Bed was perfect - 7 feet long
