party: Welcome to my FIRST EVER Trip Report! party:

Here's a little rundown for those who haven't followed along on my extensive PTR (found here): My family and I had never been to Disney World before, and started planning this trip early last summer after the one year anniversary of my Mom's passing. We were all very tired from what 2007 had brought us and decided Disney World was just the ray of light we needed to get out of the funk we were in. I grew up going to Disneyland and my oldest two children had gone with me only once, but the other half of our clan had no clue what to expect. I was clued into the DIS boards by friends who I KNOW ARE STILL HERE BUT LURK, LURK, LURK! (Hi, girls!) -I honestly don't know what kind of trip we'd have ended up with without a board like this one and the information it holds.

The date of our trip and resort of choice changed many (many) times, but we finally settled on January 30 through February 8th, 2009 at Port Orleans Riverside.

The cast of characters were...

Myself and my husband

Our son Kyle

Our daughters Tatiana...

And Anastasia

And Alexandra!

I'm in the process of uploading, resizing and converting the 3,100 pictures I took over the ten days were were in Disney World, not to mention the 300+ PhotoPass pics taken by the good folks on site, so please bear with me if the beginning is a little slow going. There's a DIS meet (hi, GeminiAngel!), a DIS bus ride (hi, SoldiersMom!), pics of the new treehouse villas taken from the river during the day and at night (awesome) and much, much more.

Here is what you'll be reading about:

January 30 - Our arrival at POR and Downtown Disney
January 31 - Animal Kingdom... and Downtown Disney!
February 1 - Magic Kingdom
February 2 - Epcot
February 3 - DHS
February 4 - Magic Kingdom
February 5 - Epcot
February 6 - Magic Kingdom
February 7 - Epcot
February 8 - Animal Kingdom and our journey home.

Thanks for reading this far and I hope you enjoy the journey with me!

I'll start reading soon. I have a crushing headache. Think I'm dehydrated.

Sarilas 02-11-2009 09:44 AM

Oh no- I'll bet you're right. I started drinking vitamin water and such at the end of our trip becase I was so dehydrated. Next time, more fluids that don't include glow cubes and straws for me... ;)
