This time our son is coming too! Final update at last!

Hey all!

We just hit the 100 day mark so time to start a pre-trip report.

The crew:
Me (college instructor/volleyball coach)

dw - pooksma (sorry I'm not allowed to post pictures, it's like a hidden MeMom thing)

ds - Declan (8)

and a family of newbies - MomNewbie, DadNewbie, and two little Princesses.

It seems we are one person short of a Grand Gathering.

For those of you who don't know us, I should explain the title. This will be our 5th trip to WDW for pooksma and me but only the fourth ds (Declan). You see last year we were bad parents and went without him . We hadn't really been away without him so we thought it was time for a mom and dad trip only. To this day, he doesn't know we went. We told him we were going to New England while he was at camp. It wasn't a total lie; we did drive to Bangor and fly from there.

This year's edition will take place between August 9th to 18th and we will be staying at POFQ. We have never stayed there before and are looking forward to a new resort. Pop is still my favourite but you need to try as many resorts as possible. We were suppose to stay there last summer but switched to CBR when a new deal was released.

We will also be traveling with another family for the first time. They are newbies and have left many of the decisions to us. No pressure! They have two young daughters who are huge fans of the Princesses. They are going to have a blast!

It is going to be a busy summer. Pooksma and the mother of our newbie family are attending a conference in Memphis in mid July (some kind of teacher thing). Declan will be attending a couple of camps, and I have coaching duties all summer with our Canada Games team. Our WDW trip comes right in the middle for me but it will be a nice break.

We are just waiting for the August hours to be released to set our ADRs; hopefully, that will be done later today.

Stay tuned for more.
