My First Attempt at a Trip Report ~ only 4 days to go!!

First off....Thank You for reading my trip report.

This is my second attempt at planning for our first trip to Disney. Our first trip was supposed to take place last December but our house was broken into and then DH lost his job so we had to cancel it. The kids were heartbroken. So when I found out about Free Dining I talked to DH and decided to plan another trip. We decided not to tell the kids this time just in case we have to change it again.

All that just to say that we are going to Disney!!!!!

Introductions....
Me ~ Kadee (33) Stay at home mom and college student working towards my bachelors. Technically this is not my first trip to Disney but the last time I was there was spring of 88 and I don't remember much of it.

DH ~ B (31) Computer geek. Has never been to Disney and could care less what any of the plans are. He is looking forward to it though. I think

DD ~ K (11) Not a girly girl at all. Loves High School Musical and Zac Efron. Not into the princesses at all.

DS ~ N (5) My little man. Loves Star Wars. I am determined to go to Star Wars weekend one of these years. His favorite Disney character is Pluto. He would be pretty excited about Disney if he knew we were going.

DS ~ M (2) My h*ll on wheels. He loves all the Disney characters. Mickey, Pluto, Pooh and Tigger seem to be at the top of the list though. At least for today, it could change tomorrow.

This is kind of a special trip although delayed. My daughter had a traumatic skull injury almost 2 years ago and in trade for her agreeing to the surgery, we agreed to a trip to Disney. She has since fully recovered and nobody can tell she even had surgery unless we point out the scar.

We are staying at AKL Savannah View from September 20th to the 26th. Other than that we don't really have anything set it stone yet. I figured this could be a great place for me to get ideas and plans out without my daughter finding them.

Thanks again for reading and

Thanks!! I feel that Disney is our way of celebrating that we made it through all that life had thrown at us. Hopefully that is the end of it and everything will be good from here on out.

Possible ADR's

Here are the restaurants we are pretty set on. I think.

Chef Mickey's (dinner)
Boma (breakfast)
Crystal Palace (breakfast)
Garden Grill (dinner)
Hollywood and Vine (Playhouse Disney breakfast)

So we have one more open. DH was thinking of Sci-Fi or Tutto Italia but I don't know. And I think Tutto closes around that time anyways. I was thinking about Prime Time but I don't know how the kids would do with the antics. They are pretty good about veggies but I have picky eaters.

I really think we are going to MNSSHP on the 22nd. We had tickets to go to MVMCP and I was really looking forward to it but one of DH's favorite "holidays" is Halloween and I am sure I could get our whole family to dress up. OOOHHH DD has always wanted the family to dress up as the Incredibles. This would be a good time to actually do that. I would need to lose a few pounds before attempting the Mrs. Incredible costume but it would be fun. I need to see if I can find those online somewhere.

I have a few more weeks before September hours come out and a few weeks after that before I make ADR's so I have time to get all this straightened out.
