You Want to Go Where? A 4th of July Weekend PTR
 
Since I am so excited, I am not entirely sure where to start. :scratchin I don't' have time just yet to do introductions. I have been promising to write a PTR for a trip that I have been planning for the last few months and I will start that (on the World side of dis) but since this trip is coming up so quick, I thought I should start here. Bear with me while I gather my thoughts over the next few days and take a breath... cause I am super excited. :dance3:

Hotel is booked.....

Airfare is booked....

And myself and my travel companions (soon to be disclosed) are headed to Disneyland!

Yay!!! You're coming to my neck of the woods! :cool1:

I'm not sure if you're already super familiar with the area or not, but if you have any questions about DLR I'd be happy to help!

I can't wait to read about what you have planned! :goodvibes

I haven't been to DL in almost 6 years. So many changes, I feel like I am a total newbie!

I can't wait to read about your excursion to DLR.

I miss it greatly and will have to live vicariously through you!

Minnie824 05-29-2012 10:49 AM

Where are you staying? We're arriving on the 4th and staying through that following Mon. Maybe we'll see you there.

Just a cheapo. I will list full details soon. I promise. I will say it is just across the street. :woohoo:

So you will be there that weekend too... Do you think it is going to be REALLY busy.. We were at WDW close to Christmas this year and I was :eek: at the crowds

glad you are joining... yes.. a month... :faint:

I miss DLR because it's small and manageable. I loved taking day trips down there when I was in college.

I'm uber jealous that you get to see Carsland.

Introductions
 
So lets start off with some intros. Some of you know my family pretty well by now... but not everyone does so for those who dont...

My name is Ann. I am 42 years old. (how come each time a do a report that number has to change? :confused:) I work as a in store field rep.(vendor who puts in advertisements and promos) I have been married to my husband for ages. We began dating when I was just 17, so you can do the math. ;) I think I always loved Disney even before our first family trip to DL. We watched all the movies with the kids and I had lots of character merchandise. After our first family trip to DL though I was absolutely hooked on the parks and I now try to get back at least once a year. This year will be a very unusual 12 months. A trip to WDW at Christmas and then this trip and then in the fall a trip back to WDW. (I WILL be starting that PTR soon)

Yes, a cheesy bathroom pic. But.. despite the fact that we had a long vacation just in December, there really isn't many good pictures of me.

Next there will be my normally reluctant, closet loving Disney husband. He HATES getting involved with any sort of trip planning. He LOVES that I take all that ocd energy i have and put it here on the dis boards. He too is 42. He works as a software engineer.

Here he is in his favorite vacation past time. Why does he like Disney vacations? I am not sure. :confused:

Of course there must be a princess on our Disney vacation and that princess is our youngest dd Zoe. She loves to travel with me. She is 7 and up until recently loved all things pink and princess. Now though, her tastes/interestes are begining to change.:sad1: Zoe was born with a birth defect that is always causing challenges with her health. She is a trooper though and doesn't let much slow her down.

My next family member is probably not going to be too excited to be going... to disney... aaaaaaah gain. :rolleyes: I wish I could do a proper 16 year old boy impression, but if any of you out there have one.. you probably know just what I am talking about. I doubt he has a favorite color let a lone a favorite disney character. Still, maybe Alex will be a bit more excited this trip than he was on our last because of the next person to join us.

Here is Alex

Next there will be our oldest son, Zach. He is in the military. (National Guard) He was not able to go with us on our December trip and I really did miss him. Zach is 19.

Yes, he is the KING of cheesy bathroom pics.

The word is still out in if Kira (our oldest will join us) I don't know that she will. 1. She isn't particularly fond of her "stinky" brothers. Fun to her does not involve spending time with them. 2. She is going on the fall trip. Kira is married (she just passed her one year anniversary). Her dh would not be going (I dont' think) She and Josh (her dh) share a birthday. They are both 21 years old. (Josh is minutes older than her) They were married last May in a local movie theater (think old... not regal/amc etc)

And since I am snagging pictures from her off her facebook account I will post a really old one of the two of them. (they have known eachother since they were 10..dated since they were 15)

It has been so long since I have been there. I remember that our trips to DLR were never were as long as the ones we nee to take to WDW. I wonder though... 3 days? Will it be enough park time with all the new things?
