Introduction - Lucky Number 5

Welcome to my second TR this year and my third visit to the World. This visit is one where I found a lot of lucky number 5's and almost included the number 5 in the TR ...

I first visited WDW in 2005 and had an absolute ball. I was a seasoned LAND traveller; but thought it was well past time for me to experience Disney on a larger scale and the World did not disappoint.

It took me 5 years to make a return journey and I timed this second trip with the Flower and Garden Festival.

This is me...and I was celebrating my *ahem* birthday in May.



We had just returned home from that trip and within 5 hours of our return, DH was advised by his work that they would like to send him to attend a 3 day conference at Coronado Springs Resort in late October 2010. After mulling it over for about 5 days, he decided that it will be worth his while to attend.

I live in Melbourne Australia and it takes me about 24 hours of flying to get to Orlando. So, a trek out to WDW is something that takes a bit of planning before we can put it into action.

I must admit that the thought of all that flying for 3 days is something that I was not keen on doing. Afterall, the equation was 2 days flying for 3 days at WDW; which is where the first part of the title for my TR has come from. As it turns out, we managed to add an additional couple of days to the trip as DH stopped off to visit head office in Silicon Valley on the way home.

The SNAP bit? Well, it turns out that I took over 1500 photographs in the 3 days I was in Orlando; and an additional 300 photos in the Bay area.

So, I hope you'll stick around to share my memories of this trip.

Yay - another TR!

Love that photo count. I took 5000 in a month and thought that was bad.
