The Darling Family June Beach Club Trip:Hugging Ewoks and Finding Peter Pan

to my first attempt at a trip report. We had a magical trip and I want to relive it! Hopefully I’ll pick up a few readers, but even if I don’t I’ll have fun thinking about our magical vacation. And don’t worry I took plenty of pictures!

Introducing the cast:

Me: a 37 year old mostly SAHM that loves Disney World. I visited Disneyland as a child and spent a day there in 2004, but my first trip to Disney World didn’t come until Thanksgiving 2006. I loved every minute of it and we returned in January 2008. That was a fabulous trip full of great memories, and I couldn’t stay away too long so this trip was planned!

DH: Almost 40 year old government attorney. If you’ve ever seen the movie Hook, he’s like the lead character. Sometimes forgets about the kid inside, but Disney World helps bring back that boy who never grows up. He doesn’t have the same obsession with Disney World as me, but he always loves the time we spend there and agrees that there will never be a “last trip” (at least not until we’re dead).

DD9: We’ll call her Wendy Darling. She’s a lot like Wendy. Sweet, responsible and trying to negotiate that tricky balance between being a little girl and growing up. She’s still not quite ready to leave the nursery yet! (Or at least I don’t want her to be.)

DS7: This is John Darling. He’s my sensitive soul and approaches life with a bit of caution. When he breaks loose, however, he can be as rambunctious as they come.

DS4: Michael Darling. Instead of a teddy bear he carries a panda (though he doesn’t take him out of the hotel room at Disney). He has no fear and we sometimes forget that he is only 4 years old.

That’s my clan and we spent a magical nine days in Disney World. I can’t wait to tell you about our trip so let’s get this party started!
