I have been toying with the idea of writing a TR for our upcoming trip to Disneyworld, and figured that if I was writing a TR it may as well be a PTR as well. Let me start by saying that this is my first attempt at writing a TR so please be kind. When I first found the Dis, I thought it was a cool place to find out "stuff" about Disney, now I have come to discover that there is a entirely different side to this site, aside from Disney, it is place to hang out a chat and interact with a ton of people and have some fun. I discovered a thread call the Dis Dads Club, it is open to all Dads that love all things Disney, a place where people don't look at you like you have three heads when you say you are going to Disneyworld again.... This group of guys have quickly become a group of friends. All are welcome, so maybe we will see you there. To all the Dads on the Dis Dad’s thread, I will try to keep the updates coming, but I can’t guarantee anything with the holidays and such coming up. Notice that I didn’t single any individuals out here at all in respects to updates. just saying……
Let me begin with introductions….. (I will add pictures as I go along with the TR)
Me – Nick (DisneyDaddy-O)
DW – Carrie (DisneyMommy-O)
DS1 – Jonathan (10) great now he’s an adult in Disneys eyes (that means I get to pay more)
DS2 – Matthew (7) will be 8 by the time we travel (Dec 27th for those of you wondering)
I guess with this I should start with a little back info on our family and where the idea of this particular trip came from.
My wife and I both love Disneyworld , this can make for some very dangerous situations when it comes to planning trips. Neither one of us really wants to go anywhere else right now and Disney seems to fit very nicely with our family. Both our kids have become Disney freaks, maybe it has something to do with the Disney nursery, Winnie the pooh border and colours on the wall and mobile over the crib, all the Disney plushes a child could have and the Disney movie collection, just to name a few.
You will looove Disney………
Carrie and I went on our honeymoon to Disney and stayed at the CBR, it was very nice as much as I remember and we had a great time. We were there at the time that Disney decided that it would be cool to dress the castle up like a cake. To me looking back at it, it looked like a giant bottle of Pepto Bismol, not very attractive and somewhat disappointing. (just not very magical) I think we spent most of our time in EPCOT, might have to do something with the margaritas that Carrie insisted I drink.
We came back feeling that we had a fantastic time but I don't remember actually having the Disneyworld travel bug.....yet.
I guess as they say, the rest is history and this brings us to the present time of Disney trips.
