Friends, Wishes & Treats Oct WDW Trip ~ ~Aloha! HI cruise TR is complete!
 
Hello all!


My DD Megan and I are going back to WDW much earlier than we ever thought!

After our trip in March for Megan's birthday and dream trip (TR at http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2676868)
the opportunity to return in October was just too great to not take.

We have met a very wonderful family here on the DIS - DIS Name "blessedmom4" Judy, her DH Pete, kid's Christian, David, Rachel and a special little princess....Lisa! (their PTR - http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2572447) if you want to meet this wonderful family, please take a look...even with all their challenges they meet each day with smiles, love and support for others!

Little Princess Lisa is going on her MAW trip in October and we have become "family" over the past few months....Judy and I are even "Aunties" now and Pete "Uncle" to our kids and we are lucky enough to be a small part of their trip!

We will be attending MNSSHP on October 18 together, a visit to them at GKTW (GiveKidsTheWorld) and a big night at Houes of Blues 10/14!
Rachel, who is a beautiful guitar player is going to be the opening act that night along with her dad in the restaurant at 8 pm....along with Lisa going on her MAW trip and Rachel's opportunity to play at the HOB, I knew in my heart we had to be a small part of their trip.

When Lisa made her "wish" with her wish granters....the first one was to go to WDW and her second one was to meet Megan and I....so helping to make that wish come true brings so much joy to my heart :love:

This trip for Megan and I is totally different from our spring trip, we are staying at POFQ ....ssh, surprising Megan with it....doing QS and plan on winging our days, no set plans except for MNSSHP, HOB and a carriage ride at POFQ on Sunday with some other friends from DIS...we have a few other DIS friends who will be there at the same time we hope to meet up with.
For the planner in me, this had been a strange thing for me not to plan each day out ahead of time....our first day which ever bus is there when we get to the stop is where we will go for the day!

Thanks for joining in and following along on this special "bonus" trip!

Lisa

Hi Kathy, welcome....
:woohoo: yes you are first and get to have and honorary badge of "firstdom"
:thumbsup2

guess Marv wasn't up to date on your PTR and you beat him to mine :rotfl:

Yay - I think I am second!!!

I am super excited for your "bonus" trip... and I am even more excited to hear about it when you get back! I love your idea of "which ever bus is there first"... splended! That would just be so much fun - the planner in me says "no way" - so does the frugal person in me... but my adventerous side is very intrigued. LOL

Waving to Megan too... :)

Hi D~ and welcome! yup you are second!

believe me, the no planning for ADR's/park days, tours, etc is so not like me...I feel a little unbalance because of it....but need to be more spontaneous and I am trying to go with the flow and "Learn to dance in the rain"... we won't do the "first bus" every day, but thought it would be fun the the first one!

also planning more down time so we can enjoy the resort and pool actually got 6 days of tickets for our 8 day trip and plan on having more time at DTD and maybe do some resort hopping too.


Hi back from your favorite AG customer!

Hi back from your favorite AG customer!

I think you will have a blast just taking it as it comes.

I've been to WDW twice, and never been to DTD - so this time, we purposely scheduled an off day in the middle so we can go exploring - and enjoy the resort. The girls are so excited because we are staying at POFQ, and we can use POR's pool - because it's almost like a 2 for 1 - LOL... I am just really excited to explore both resorts - they both look beautiful.

The girls really wanted to stay at POR for the Mansion rooms, but once they saw the new refurbed rooms at POFQ - they love them... I told them the next time, if we enjoy POFQ, we'll try POR - since there will be less of a time crunch. LOL

We plan to see a lot of resorts on this trip... dd specifically planned a bunch of ADRs at resorts that she wanted to see - so it will be a lot of fun. :lovestruc

Hi Tink, yes you get a ribbon too....so does D~....heck everyone gets a ribbon I'm feeling generous today! :woohoo:



Got a little bit of Mickey Mail today! Our MNSSHP tickets came :banana:....a little sad though, one has Mickey; the other Goofy and say "let the memories begin", no halloween decorations...what the heck :confused3 not a fun souvenior of the party!

lovethattink 09-03-2011 06:39 PM

Bummer about the boring tickets. But, your tickets arrived!!! You got Mickey mail!!!

POFQ is a charming resort! We have never stayed there, but we've visited friends staying there and have stopped for beignets many times, yum!! If everything goes as planned, we will be staying there in December. What could change would be my in-laws visiting that weekend.

can't wait for the beignets...that was our favorite thing to do on weekend mornings when we lived in New Orleans...we took the little ferry boat across the Mississippi and hung out on the patio eating beignets and drinking the strong coffee! I had to add lots of cream and sugar!
we are looking forward to sharing the carriage ride with you guys!
fingers crossed you get to go in Dec!

Anakin and I are looking forward to the carriage ride with you and Megan! He was ready to go the day you made the resie!!

It sounds like Disney really captured the ambiance of New Orleans.

I'm not much of a coffee drinker, but when I do have some it either has to be black or have tons or vanilla creamer in it!!
