Hi everyone! And welcome to my very BRIEF PTR!:cool1:

My DH, Matt and I (Susie) will be heading to the World TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY!!! We will be celebrating our 12th anniversary (which is actually one week from today) by spending 3 fabulous nights at SSR in a studio.

For those of you who don't know me, DH and I live west of Indianapolis. He is a band director at Avon High School (and for anyone who follows marching band, they just won their 2nd Grand National Championship in a row last night!!). I am a 4th grade teacher in Indianapolis. We have two amazing children. Tyson is 9, Shaelyn is 3. You won't be hearing too much about them on this trip, because THEY AREN'T GOING!
:confused::confused:

What? What's that you ask? HOW could we possibly go to Disney without our 'amazing' children?:confused3

EASILY!!:lmao:

We are DVC members, and we take at least 2 trips a year. One trip is our designated family trip. These usually last 5-8 days and they are ALL about our children. We let them dictate what we do, where we eat, and when we just hang out at the pool. Then, there is our adults-only trip, where Matt and I spend hours just sitting and watching and soaking in the atmosphere. We eat at our favorite restaurants, and take as long as we want. We watch street performers, shows, and Voices of Liberty AT LEAST 5 times. We stake out spots for fireworks 2 hours ahead of time. We sleep in. We RELAX. And we don't feel guilty, because we know our kids will be back in charge the next time we go. We remind them OFTEN how fortunate and blessed we are as a family that we can visit our favorite place in the world each year. It's all good!

If you're new to my TRs, please feel free to click on any trip in my signature that is underlined. That will take you to the trip report. You can have more information about us than you'll ever need! ENJOY!

But in the meantime, let's get this party started!


I've decided that I was going to create a daily update in which I share with you all the things I just CAN'T WAIT to see or do. So here we go!!


14 Days to Disney...

I can't wait to see the castle lit up for Christmas for the first time in person:

Matt and I plan on spending the evening in Magic Kingdom on our 2nd night. I just can't wait to watch the castle light up in this magical way. We will sit on the curb on Main Street with a Diet Coke and maybe something sweet from the Confectionery..... :banana:

I came over from your other trip report and can't wait to hear all about this adventure. My DH and I are going in 25 days - and will be staying for 14 days; we can't wait and are looking forward to it being more relaxing than normal. We will be checking out the DVC ourselves this trip - to see if we want to take that step! Can't wait for more...

And the castle all lit up with Christmas is breathtaking! That is the reason we are going around that time also!!!! Christmas is my favorite!

I'll be interested to see if you take the plunge! If you need a great DVC guide, ask for Susie Farnsworth. She was ours, and she was great!

Funny thing - DH glances over my shoulder as I was reading and saw Avon High and starts telling me how amazing their band is. He was in marching band in high school, and they took 12th at Nationals (American Fork). It is totally one of great moments of his life. I am glad to know there are other band geeks on here. ;)

Kona Breakfast Episode (http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=24204435&postcount=545)

American Fork was at Grand Nationals again this year. Did you hear about the bus accident they had? We couldn't believe they raised the funds to travel to Indy in 2 or 3 days so that they could perform in honor of the staff member that was killed. The whole crowd was pulling for them!

Thanks for the link - the Tonga toast looks phenomenal. I think we are definitely going to try it out this time. As for a trip report, I am hoping to do one, but I am like the queen of unfinished trip reports. Maybe I can actually do one and finish it this time.

DH and I are both from American Fork actually. (Yeah, we went to high school together but didn't meet until years later.) My cousin actually plays in the band now, and DH knew Heather that was killed in the accident. And I grew up about 2 block from the band director and was friends with his kids, so we are still pretty tight with all the band stuff. It really was just the most amazing thing, watching them raise the money. Everyone was shocked because people were just walking into the school and dropping off whatever they could give.

Anyway, congrats to your hubby and back to your PTR.

Ha ha! I jumped over and checked out your never-ending TR. How funny. By the way, the wedding pictures were stunning, I just LOVED your cake! I'll try to get back over there and make some comments soon!

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss in your community. That is every band parent's nightmare... to have a bus wreck with those precious kids and staff on board. So glad the band was able to make the trip to Indy!

I didn't even know there was a show there....maybe I did, but I haven't seen a whole show either.
Every once in a while, you'll hear loud, more symphonic music playing near the fountain/ Innoventions area. If you hear that, stop and look at the fountain. It is actually dancing to the music! Enjoy!!

Hope you have a great time at Illuminations. Aren't you going to try and catch it more than once?

Yes! We are hoping to bookend our trip with it, seeing it on the first and last night. Hope the weather cooperates!:rolleyes:

Thanks! The forecast gets better every time I check! And thanks for the reminder about the 9:30 time. We DO have that in our itinerary, but when you're so used to the 9:00 slot, it's easy to forget!

Gettin' better every day!!

I watched the Space Shuttle land this morning on the NASA channel. As they showed the Florida landscape with those famous central FL trees, I couldn't help but get a bit giddy, knowing I'd be flying over those very trees THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW!!!!:dance3:

Don't be jealous! You'll be there soon enough! ;) Thanks for the no-rain hopes.. it's looking like we'll get some for sure on our last day. That's our Animal Kingdom day, which is fine because we'll be watching indoor shows most of the time!:thumbsup2

can't wait to hear about your trip..:thumbsup2

Can't wait to share it with you! I'm hoping to do some live updates... so stay tuned!

So far, so good!! We might get a bit of rain, but it's okay with us! Rain in Disney is better than sun at home....:rolleyes:

The only day with serious chances of rain is the day we leave. We are hoping to be at AK that day watching Nemo and FotLK, so hopefully it won't impact us to much!

I'll be chatting with y'all from the airport tomorrow morning! Good night!!:yay:

Ha ha! I jumped over and checked out your never-ending TR. How funny. By the way, the wedding pictures were stunning, I just LOVED your cake! I'll try to get back over there and make some comments soon!

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss in your community. That is every band parent's nightmare... to have a bus wreck with those precious kids and staff on board. So glad the band was able to make the trip to Indy!

Thanks - you're so sweet. I wanted an elegant, simple cake, and our cake designer was fabulous.
