Prince Charming takes his Princesses to Disney World~Updated 6/7 with ADR's
This is my first foray into a pre-trip report...heck any type of trip report for that matter! I hope I do this justice and don't sound like a goober
Anyway, let me introduce the family. There is me, DW extraordinaire and Head Princess, Margaret. My favorite character is Belle and DH would say it is more of an obsession... ok, maybe it is.
I have been married to DH, Rod , for almost 14 years and he is my Prince Charming. His favorite Disney character is Mulan. Which is good b/c I like her.
Our little Princess is Paige. She is 4 and is the light of our lives, sometimes she turns that light off and it gets dark, but then she turns it right back on. Her favorite character is Ariel. Also a good choice as I like her also.
This will be the second family trip. We took DD for her 2nd b-day and brought my parents along for that one. This one will just be the 3 of us and I am extremely excited.
Here is how it all came to be:
At the end of January we decided to do a good behavior calendar, stickers for good days, x's for not so good days. Paige decided that after getting 12 stickers we would take her bowling. At the end of February, DH decided that if she got "lots" of stickers we would go to Disney World!!!!! Of course all I heard was "go to Disney World"
That same weekend I decided to check out the price of flights to Florida. We had already decided to go over Labor Day since it required the fewest days off work. Guess what??? I found 3 round trip, direct flights for less than $500 total!!! I couldn't believe it!! So, DH says, book it. Guess who is going to Disney World???
So far, we have plane tickets. That's it, nothing more, just plane tickets. But that is okay, I have a countdown going...at work. I am trying to keep this a secret from DD so it will be a surprise, not sure if I can keep up with it though.
Since I am the planner of the house, I have already bought a book to help me remember all those things I need to do before going....like book a room. No, seriously, I know I need to book a room but it is nice to have something to keep me sane until we fly out. I have some ideas of where I want to stay, yep it is all about where I want to stay b/c if Momma's not happy, ain't nobody happy! I would love to stay at POFQ but the economy may decide on All Star Sports. Either one works for me as long as I get to go. I am trying to hold out a little longer to see what deals Disney drums up but am also checking out what kind a deal I get thru AAA. I have the best AAA TA and I know if I book thru her and Disney comes out with a better deal she will work her magic to get that for me. I am soo lucky to have her.
That is all I have for today, I hope you enjoy this journey as much as I do. Once I figure out how to insert pics, I will add some. Sometimes technology can be so difficult.
Thank you for reading...
I lost my name when I became Paige's mommy
