Cool Around the World in 4 days. . .Disney World that is!!

So let me begin at the beginning. You are probably thinking, "Well Duh, where else would you start?" Well that are so many places to start a story. Some will start at an epilogue which is sort of a before the beginning. Some might try to entice a reader to read more by starting with a highly energetic tale and than go back to the beginning. I have decided to start at the beginning, after all it's the very best place to start.

For those of you who I have meet before, I am glad to see you here. It is my hope that you enjoy our time here. For those of you who are new to one of my TR/PTR , Welcome. I hope you enjoy my TR as much as I have enjoyed so many others that I have had the privalage to read. Let me also say that I also have a PTR going for a trip that I am going on next year (you can find a link in my siggy with the number 527 in it) and I hope you come over and say hello there as well. And for all you lurkers out there, don't be afraid to say hello. I promise not to bite.

My name is Corrine and I am a 38 mother of four. (Did she just reveal her age?) I have been a long time fan of Disney for as long as I can remember and joined the Bristol Ren. Faire just so I could have the privlage of wearing a big pretty dress. I had been to Disneyland once as a little girl but never went to WDW. I vowed that one day I would take my kids there, though I assumed that one trip was all I would take. Boy was I wrong.

In 2009 my eldest son was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis and I found out shortly after that he qualified for a Wish Trip. Well of course his wish was to go to WDW (with some coxing from mom) and we had one of the best weeks of our lives. Yes it was hot, yes we had the occasional rain to ruin our plan, yes we had the occasional melt down (and I have a picture of my DD before Storybook Princess Dinning with pink puffy eyes to prove it), but for all of that it was magical.

I was hooked. I wanted to go again as soon as possible. But lets face it, unless I got a really spectacular deal the chance of going again anytime soon was going to be hard. I was in that Disney duldrum stage when I saw a commercial on TV and decided that I was going to make it happen. Now let me tell you just a little bit about me, if I am determined to make something happen. . . I will make it happen. That is where I came up with the idea to take my kids sepratly for a special trip with just mommy. That way we could center a trip on what they wanted to do and didn't have arguments about what to do next. (And lets admite it, with 3 boys and 1 girl there is always compaints when it comes to "girly" things.)

So last May I took my eldest DS to WDW. We had a wonderful time and so many memories (Chicken boy TR in the siggy if you want to check it out) but when I got back I went from excitedly writting about my trip to skipping weeks to a month at a time. I needed to find some Disney Magic fast so at the end of last year I started my PTR for the next trip.

That is when I came up with the idea to go on a solo trip in March so I could meet up with some friends that I meet here. And as I said before when I am determined about something, I make it happen. There were some speed bumbs along the way (look out for that tree!!!) but I was able to work it out and was at the world from March 7-11th. Well actually 8th-11th since I didn't arrive at my resort until 1:00 am on the 8th.

Well that is all for now. I will be back soon to share with you all about my trip alone. I promise that my future posts will be filled with photo's and amazing stories. So pop some popcorn, pull up a seat, and enjoy!

Thanks for joining me everyone. I hope I don't bore you to much. Sorry there is no update tonight. I took the kids to the movie night at the school and watched Puss n Boots. It was actually pretty cute. I than came home and finished up playing with my PP pics. After I played with them all I have over 100 pics. Alot of them came out really cute while some of them have me vowing to lose some weight before my trip next year. So now that it is in writing I guess I will have to stick to it. I hope to lose at least 40 pounds by next May. Don't let me slip guys. I will have to post this in my PTR as well so you guys will keep me on my toes.

Oh and talking about PP, there was a slight problem on our Epcot day together D. I sent you a PM through FB.

I promise to be back soon to enthrall you all with my fabulous tales of WDW.

I definatly made some friends while I was on my trip. I actually got a picture of a group of them that you will see when I talk about my DHS day. I am definatly glad that I will be going with some people during my next trip. I did Pop last year, but absolutly feel in love with POFQ in March and it has ruined me. I would definatly be doing a Value if I couldn't afford anything else, but as long as I can afford I will be going to a Mod.
Ooo I hadn't seen the unofficial one! Thanks!
