A family faces one trial after another while trying to enjoy the "Magic Kingdom", DisneyWorld, in Orlando, Florida, but they are feeling anything but .... magical.

Maybe it was a mistake to drag Andrea (wife) and the kids (Travis, Carmillia, and baby Dax) to Florida, just so I could take a week off from my job.  Seems that ever since we got on that plane to fly to Florida, we've been met with one misfortune after another.

For starters, we nearly slept through the alarm; then when we were finally ready to go out and head for the airport, Dax decided to have a loose stomach (all over the car).  We had to wait over an hour while the carwash cleaned out our car and get the smell of puke out.  

When we finally got to the airport, I couldn't find the plane tickets.  Looked everywhere; was starting to panic, when Travis pointed out that they were where I had left them: right in my pocket.  

Boy, talk about embarrassing!

We then boarded the plane.  No biggie.  We settled into our seats, and all seemed right with the world when Carmillia started screaming that she had left Mr. Pooh (her faovrite teddy bear) at home.  Well, I told her that I would get her a new one when we finally got to DisneyWorld.  That didn't satisfy her one bit.  She continued to scream and kick her legs until I was ready to dump her right off the plane.

Several hours later, we found ourselves in Orlando, but at the hotel, the handlers of our baggage had accidentally misplaced them: there was no hide nor hair of them anywhere.  All that came was Dax's stroller and several bags of disposable diapers, plus his carry on baby bag.  There was no signs of the other family members' luggage.  

That meant most of us had to make do with what little we had on us.  I would have to go to the store later to get some clothes and some socks, not to mention underwear and personal affects, so we could survive until our luggage arrived (if it ever did).

The Florida air was scented with hope and promise.  Even though our trip started out badly enough, I was determined to give my little family the DisneyWorld Experience Of A Lifetime.  I wanted to prove to them that I could be a good Husband and Daddy and give them the vacation of their dreams.

Little did we know what was in store for us in the days ahead.

~To be continued.~

Great story. I guess everyone who has traveled can relate to missing items of some sort. On our honeymoon my wife left her make-up bag in the trunk. yes we were in Disney but we were going on their cruise ship. Yes and this honeymoon is to be continued as well...
