Smile Going back to WDW for Liam's 9th Birthday! 5/29-6/3 WE ARE BACK!!!

I am so happy to announce
We are going back to Walt Disney World for Liam's 9th Birthday
I have made reservations, so now it is time to plan


It all started about a week ago.
I was going through movies on Netflix and found on Walt Disney World.
I started feeling nastolgic over the Wish trip the family took in September of 2009.
This got me thinking.
I have four kids and right now there is just no way the budget can afford everyone to go.
That's when I got the idea that I would take each child seperatly for a special birthday gift.
Liam is the oldest and turning 9 this year so now I had decide if I could swing it this year
or had to wait until next.
Fate must have been smiling on me because the Kids play for free program was the deciding factor.

We will be staying at the All-Star Sports from May 29th-June 3.


I chose the Quick-Service plan because I don't think Liam will like all the waiting for sit down resteraunts.
I didn't even relize that May 30 is Memorial day until after I booked.
Hopefully it wont be to crazy.

So far not to many plans.
Just bought a book to see what was new this year.
I also hit the Disney store yesterday and found a buzz lightyear suitcase,
a mickey mouse shirt,
and a Phinias and Ferb shirt for under $17 dollars.
I am planning give these to Liam for his birthday.

I have already talked with Liam about the trip,
but was thinking about staying quite about it until his birthday.
I hope to make it a big surprise for his birthday but I don't know if this is going to work.

It is a special promotion that if you stay at a resort (paying full price), you get free base tickets for the kids for the length of the stay. The promotion is only good for certain dates and must be booked by a certain time.

So today I had one of those rare (OK I admite not so rare) moments
where I let the excitment of going back to Walt Disney World get the better of me.
I went to Border's yesterday and in my excitement bought a book for Disney World.
I brought it home and started reading it.
Than this morning I checked on my order for Amazon.com
and relized that I had already ordered the book that I just bought.
Oh, well.
At least the let me return it back to the store.

Hi Corrine

I followed you over from my PTR. I am working my way through your PTR. I think that your idea of taking the children seperatly for something special is a wonderful idea. It gives all the spot light to them. I love it.

I had to comment on your post about getting wrapped up in the excitement of going back to Disney. There are times I am talking to a friend about it or DH and I just let out a squeeeeee sound. Everyone looks at me like I am crazy but I have to do it to keep from bouncing like Tigger

Okay I am going to read the rest of your report now. I just had to go ahead and comment. I am so glad to know there are others like me

Let me first appologize for not being on here for the last week. Let's just say that life with 3 young kids can sometimes be an adventure in itself.

Liam has a follow up appointment tomarrow and hopefully his lung functions and weight is up. Good news is that my weight is down. I have lost 6 pounds since starting to walk. It has encouraged me to watch what I eat and keep up with the walking. Pictures of Disney and Disney Music on my mp3 has also helped.

We started up Disney Movie Nights at my house again. I just decided on watching a movie since the other kids were not going. I don't want to cause any problems of jealousy. I have told them all that they will be going on a special birthday when they are older, but sometimes younger kids don't understand the concept of later.

I was going to do it once a week, but since our next movie from Netflix came on Sat, Liam wanted to see it right away. So if it all works out we will be doing movie's on Sat/Sun and Weds.

Our first movie last week was The Jungle Book. It was cute because it had all the kids standing up and dancing to The Bare Necessities.

Than we watched Meet the Robinsons on Sunday. Liam loved the dinosaur.

We are planing on watching Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest tonight.

Just read through your PTR...all of your plans sound great! It's wonderful that you get to take a trip with Liam. I'm sure it will be an amazing time for the both of you. I've also watched three of the Disney Parks movies on Instant Netflix already Happy Planning...and good luck with Liam's new treatment!
