Our trip to our "Happy place" w/ pics & videos!!*new 7/7!!*Last day Magic Kingdom**

Okay after much peer pressure I have decided to write a report. If I don’t know what to say I will just post a lot of pictures since I took about 600.

The cast consists of-

Me-Dismom9761 aka Amy-I work part time at a daycare taking care of 9-12 month old babies.The rest of my days are spent taking kids from one activity to another.

DS9-Peyton or Peyt(sounds like Pate)-loves to play all sports but his favorite is baseball.He has ADHD and Anxiety disorder.It may help you to know this in upcoming installments.This trip I found that he may love Disney even more than me. If that is possible.

DD8-Rebekah or Bekah-She is my little drama queen.She loves art and has recently discovered softball.

DD3-Rachel or Rae-she is my little daredevil.She will climb anything and ride anything.She loves the princesses.

GM-Grandma-my mother -She works at the same daycare where I work and is Rae’s teacher.She loves to go to Disney and Mary Poppins is her favorite character.She was in a wreck twelve years ago,she and my dad were hit head on by a drunk driver,and it has left her with one leg slightly shorter than the other and is not as steady on her feet lately.This will help you to understand some things in the report.

GP-Grandpa-my dad-Dad works for the IRS in Atlanta.He goes to Disney because his granchildren and wife love it and he loves seeing them happy.He uses an ECV in Disney because of an infection he had in his spine and because of his size.

DS11(tyler) and DH(Dean) will not be joining us on this trip. Tyler has started middle school and didn’t want to miss any school and neither one of them are crazy about Disney.

There will also be times when we spend time with my DH’s brother(Bart) and SIL(Harleygirl aka Amy) and their kids(Matt and Trevor).Also Amy’s mom(GiGi) and stepdad (Pappy)were with them.

If you would like to read more detailed and drawn out descriptions of the cast they are in my pre-trip report on the first page.The link is in my signature.

Our trip dates were originally August 31-Sept 5 but then I added a room only ressie for August 30.We would start our package with FREE dining on August 31. We stayed at the Pop Century resort and had six day hoppers.Did I mention we had FREE dining???

Next up....travel day.Did we get to leave before 3:00 pm?? Did we survive seven hours in the car with Rae who HATES her carseat??

Thumbs up

I always feel I tell everyone "happy planning", now I guess I can say to you "happy writing"!

It is so encouraging to keep hearing how your DS and so many other's children with ADHD and Spectrum disorders do so well at Disney, as our DS 8 has both and we (DH & I) do have some major apprehensions in going next year. So I'll be looking forward to hearing how Peyt did and what kind of fun he had. Maybe my DS can read some of your report too.

So have fun writing and I'll be back to keep on reading

PS I think I was in your area over the Labor Day weekend....My Aunt lives in a suburb of Atlanta.
