The 'This-was-supposed-to-be-a-holiday-to-Mexico' TRIP REPORT! Sept/Oct 2012
 
We are home! :sad1:

We arrived back last Monday (8th October) and what a MAGICAL time we had, we just both cannot believe how quickly those 14 days went... :confused3

So to bring back that Disney magic, I am looking forward to sharing our holiday and memories with you all, so lets begin...!

Quick overview:

The Cast:

Me - I am Kat, I'm 25 and this is only my SECOND trip to WDW (I know, I know). My first trip was in 2000 with my parents and I barely went on anything so this trip will be like my first time at WDW.

Thats the thing about WDW - it always makes me cry happy tears! From the first time we were there I just fell in love! We got engaged there, had our honeymoon there and brought back the ultimate pixie dust - our DS :) We're bringing him back for his first trip (of many I hope!) in May :goodvibes Reading your TR has been excellent, thank you for sharing and I can't wait to read the rest :)
