So Many Characters..So Little Time! Our April Adventure to the World! Complete:)

Everyone on this planet has a dream...the question is, how far are you willing to go to make it come true? from Meet the Robinsons

Hi Everyone and Welcome to my TR!! This is my 3rd time writing one of these and you'd think it would get easier to come up with a great title...nope. Believe it or not that has been what has been holding me up from starting this thing. (seriously though it hasn't been that long...after all we did just get back on Saturday.) Before I begin, here are the titles that were in the running. I'm sharing them with you just to give you a glimpse of how our trip went.

* You can't make do the Haunted Mansion! I won't do it!!
* Mom, I thought you said TOT would be scary!
* I won't ride anything with the word scary, haunted or terror in the title!
* Lady, I'm not sitting in someone's lap!

Okay those are just a few. But, ultimately I decided to go with one I did because of something that was so funny to watch...but hey I can't give everything away you'll just have to read to find out!!!

For those of you who didn't follow along with my PTR, here is the link--Cross your heart we're going!! Cross it! An Unexpected April Adventure!! It will help you catch up with all the planning and how the trip came to be.

Details

When:
April 12-16, 2010

Where:

Pop Century Resort w/ the Quick Service Dining Plan and 5 day MYW tickets w/ the waterpark and more option.

Why:
Well...since you're reading I guess I don't need to explain it to you. It's Disney! I don't know if I could even put it in to words how much we love it there!! Although, I think I have tried many times. It's just such a magical place that keeps pulling us back time and time again.

Most importantly......

Who:

The Cast of Characters for this trip!!!
My family This was one of my favorite pictures from the trip that we put into a calendar that hangs by my desk so I get to enjoy it every day. It is also one of the only pictures that we were all together and both the boys had their eyes opened. Apparently the sun was always in their eyes this trip as you will come to see!


Now...for the individual introductions....

Me (Angie): I'm a 36 year old SAHM to two adorable boys. I'm also currently a part-time college student. This semester I have been able to take all my classes online through the college so it's been really convenient plus it allows me to be there for the boys when they need me. Of course, I love everything Disney, the movies, characters and especially anything that has to do with the parks. I am the official planner of all our trips and I wouldn't have it any other way! Favorite Character: Mickey!


DH (39)(with his two boys) : He loves Disney as much as I do and has often mentioned when we retire someday he would love to move to Florida just to be close to the mouse! He steps back, lets me plan everything and as long as I tell him we can go back again...he's happy!! Favorite Character: Grumpy


DS (Nick)-9 : He's my sensitive one, loves sports, singing, and especially video games! He refuses to ride anything even remotely scary at Disney which explains some of the titles I almost went with for this TR. It seems like we spent a lot of time trying to convince him to try some of these rides this trip...with no luck. But, there's always next time right! Favorite Characters: Goofy and Baloo



DS (Noah)-7 My little daredevil. He's definitely a mommy's boy and loves to be where ever I am. He has a wonderful imagination and loves his action figures. Honestly, I think that's where most of his souvenir money went this trip. Favorite Characters: Goofy and Pluto



The Plans:

April 12th--Arrival Day!! (hopefully MK that night)
April 13th--Epcot (EMH)
April 14th--MK/ DTD
April 15th--Typhoon Lagoon/ DHS
April 16th--Tusker House Character Breakfast/ AK day
April 17th--Arrive back at home!

It was a wonderful vacation and I have so much to share with all of you! I can't wait to get started! I hope you decide to follow along!

Handy Chapter Links!!!


Did you sleep? We have arrived!!
The best $6 we ever spent!! Arrival day continued pt.2.....
Our Magical Night Continues.... (arrival day pt. 3)
Isn't it time to wake up yet? Our Epcot Day!!

Characters...Characters Everywhere!!

Hold on tight....as we blast off into Space!!!
A few wild rides and...Yo ho, yo ho! A pirate's life for us?

Now don't close your eyes.......
Sit back, relax and enjoy the parade!
A night at Disney Quest and a little more shopping!!!
So...what did we bring home with us? (souvenirs)
Fun in the Sun at Typhoon Lagoon!
Wipeout!!...Typhoon Lagoon Continued.
Woody's Rootin' Tootin' Shootin' Fun!! A night at DHS!
So Many Characters...So Little Time!! (Title of TR Explained + UP Characters!)
A Tale as Old as Time......
Good vs. Evil...a night Fantasmic style + A ride to remember!
There's more to be seen than can ever be seen....Animal Kingdom Day!
More to do that can ever be done.....
Walk with us....
A Safari Breakfast!
Where are the animals?...and Finding Baloo!
Can you feel the love tonight? and Saying Goodbye to AK
Saying Goodbye....
Final Thoughts

Can't wait to hear about your trip! I am getting my masters and all of my classes are online, it is soooo much easier than having to go to class 2-3 nights a week.

Hi! and Welcome!! Oh, I agree! It's so much easier taking the classes online!! It's great being able to study when it's convenient for me and not having to be stuck in a classroom for most of the day!!

YAY!! Second!! Great job Sarah!! If you haven't guessed already....that title was courtesy of Nick after we had tried to convince him over and over to ride the TOT.
