ToaD Meet in NYC

As we count down the days to my incredible Adventures by Disney trip to Peru, I thought today would be a good day to let you all know about my day of adventure in New York City on the way to Peru!

I don’t like to call it too close, I prefer to be early.  I also don’t like traveling in the winter.  I am always cautious about snow and weather delays.  So when I was told I would need to get myself to New York City in January to catch my flight to Lima, Peru, I started to panic.  Should I fly in a day early?  My flight to Peru is at 11:20 pm though.  Do I really need a whole extra day to make sure I get there on time?

I decided I better fly direct if possible.  Here’s where the problems started.  I could get a direct flight into LaGuardia or Newark, but I needed to go to JFK.  Finally, I decided I could take a connecting flight, just giving myself enough time.  I booked my flight for approximately noon with a connection in Detroit, arriving in NYC around 5 pm.  Yes, a bit of a wait for the Lima flight, but if anything went wrong, there was another connection that would get me in at 7:30 so I felt ok with this.

Then the unexpected happened.  My connection was canceled and I was moved to the later flight.  This meant if there were any problems, I would miss my flight to Lima.  I just didn’t feel comfortable.  So I selected new flights, leaving home around 6:30 am!  This gets me in to NYC around noon.  Now what do I do with an 11 1/2 hour layover?  I called on my friends and set up a quick meeting in NYC!

The plan is to meet on Saturday, January 21, 2012 at 2:00 pm at the Disney Store in Times Square.  Since I have never been to Manhattan, this will be a treat for me.  Even more of a treat since I will be seeing friends – old and new!  This made watching Dick Clark’s show on New Year’s Eve more exciting, though I must admit, I saw the Disney Store a couple times in shots, but still have no clue what to expect.

Are you interested in joining us? Please email me at Tracy@TravelOnADream.com and let me know you’ll be there! Can’t wait to see everyone!
