Disneytopia Trip Reports 2012/2013/2014
 
What is Disneytopia? It is the perfect Disney vacation, one where the resort is wonderful, crowd levels are low, food is great, commando plans work, and you get that extra, suprise of Disney Magic. So, every year we try to get closer and closer to achieving Disneytopia on vacation until we win the lottery and move in to Golden Oak. These were LIVE! trip reports.

So, how did we get here?

Neither DW nor I had Disney experiences as children. DW never went as a child, and I went once with my parents, as a 13 year old boy, to Epcot, on a Saturday during Spring Break, managed 3 whole rides, and walked through the countries.

When DW and I got married, she wanted to honeymoon in WDW. I thought, well, it wasn't that great that many years ago, but let's give it a shot. As all of you know by reading this, it truly was a magical Disneymoon.

We will be driving down in the black, Pontiac Astek. I call it the Tumbler from the Batman movies, because that would just be really cool to be driving that. We have the Disney Family stickers on the back. Wave if you see us on the road.

I'm in! Look forward to following along during the trip.

FreezinRafiki 10-05-2012 07:38 AM

I'm in! Does your Tumbler have that cool feature where it drives itself while you lay down and aim the missile? Or is that a Wayne Enterprises after-market add-on?

By the time this thing is over with, his Aztek is going to be way more awesome than your rocket van. :rotfl2:

That is the Wayne enterprise add on. Although, there are times I don't remember while driving, so maybe there is an autodriver. :crazy2:
