Wishes she could take photos of the castle as well as the photos DALE (of Chip & Dale) takes.
I wanted to regale you all with tales of my DH's saggy greyies

She's STILL too young to go! Christmas w/a 17mo w/lots of tips! PTR!

Hello and welcome to my Christmas PTR!

If you are taking or thinking about taking a young child to WDW, this is the place to be!

First, introductions!

Me: Sarah 30 year old Children's Librarian. Disney-a-holic. This will be my 8th trip to WDW since 2003. I had never been as a child.
DH: Justin (The_Horned_King) Also 30, middle school Art teacher. Responsible for my Disney-a-holicness. This is his 9th trip to WDW; went twice as a child.
And the star of the show DD: Lilliana. She will turn 17 months on the trip. This is her second adventure at WDW.

DD and I at Ohana in August:

DD and DH in Toontown in August:


If you're here for tips and haven't read the August adventure, you should definitely check it out. The PTR and the report are full of the tips and tricks that allowed us to not only survive the August heat, but to have a magical trip. Both links are in my signature.

In the past we've stayed at POR 3 times, POFQ 1, POP 1, ASSports 2. DH stayed offsite and camped as a kid.

For this adventure we are renting vacation club points and staying deluxe (plus) for the very first time. I'm crazy excited just about that. We're staying at a studio in the Boardwalk Villas.

This is my second trip at Christmas time. My mom and I went the second week of December in 2008 when I was 8 weeks pregnant with DD. It was a nightmare. I was super sick and super hormonal and missed DH like crazy.

We're staying December 18-24 and driving from Cleveland.

So them's the basics!

Thanks! I really wanted to get the tips out there. I'm really writing it to save for Lily too.

Lucky duck! Congrats on the purchase! We'd LOVE to buy in, but right now it doesn't make sense for us since we haven't stayed above the moderate category and have been happy.

I am SOOO looking forward to being within walking distance of 2 parks!

Yay! These next few months seem to be a crazy cool developmental time for kiddos. So much happens!

Last time we went we stayed at the Swan and the location can't be beat!!! My DS was 18months old and it was just such a perfect trip. Reports like yours are really great for people debating how old is old enough, ya know? Oh and I just love that you can one day show these all to Lily, how special!!

I'm in!! I just found your August TR and am about to dive in...hoping DD takes a long nap today! We have a lot in common...I too am 30, Disney-a-holic, and just took our 15 month old on her first trip in August/Sept. Difference is I can only hope we can go once every 1-2 years. With fours kids and me not working we just can't afford to do more...but I'm thankful for the Magic we do get to embark on when we can!!
