From Kick'n It at Kidani to Play'n It at Pop adults only p62/63 last thoughts&request
Good morning my Dis friends! I am ready to get this TR going! I've been home for a week now and my pics are still not downloaded onto my computer. It really doesn't matter so much now, because I am at work and can't post pics anyway. I promise to download them tonight.
I am going to keep the introductions short, since this is my 4th TR. I don't do PTR's, only trip reports. If you read my last TR (Kick'n It at Kidani) you will rmember that DH and I were planning a lovely 4 night get away in honor of free dining and our 20th anniversary (but mostly in honor of free dining) !
When free dining was announced in April, I just couldn't control the urge for September weather and Disney food, free Disney food....well, almost free Disney food. DH and I are DVC members and have AP's that don't expire until June 2010, so we figured we could do a real budget trip if we stayed value and got cheap enough flights. We knew we could rationalize this trip under the guise of an anniversary trip! (Our actual 20th anniversary is October 21st, but close enough in my book )
Well, I fought the urge to upgrade. It was tough, since the memories of Kidani and CSR still lingered, but I perservered. And we got cheap flights - $59 each way from Baltimore. The only changes we made to our original plans were1) a rental car and (2) an upgrade to the deluxe dining plan!
Let me just say, Our Trip Was Super Duper Fantastic. We really had an awesome time. I am so glad we turned it into an anniversary trip because it really added an extra dose of magic that we never expected.
So the dates......
Sunday, September 20th to Thursday, September 24th
and the place......
and the people.......
Me: MEK....Mary Ellen
DH: Denny (aka as Directionless Denny or the DH who forgets his underwear and other assorted items)
So please join in with me as I tell the tale of two grown-ups who left their teenage boys at home (again) to explore the world and the merits of the Deluxe dining plan. We even had the pleasure of a Dis meet this trip. We met the infamous Christine or C (aka Too excited to sleep). We were hoping to meet Sunnie RN (Karla), but I expect she did not get my text messages.
