PTR Oct 2010 - An Aussie returns: Back home and TR started (11/02)

Welcome to my 'might not' return journey PTR to WDW.

I live in Melbourne Australia and it takes me about 26 hours of flying to get to Orlando. So, a trek out to WDW is something that takes a bit of planning before we can put it into action.

So, why is this a 'might not' return journey? I've just completed my May 2010 PTR and am still in the process of writing my TR for the trip. This May trip was a family trip which included DH, DS, myself and my extended family.

We had just returned home and within 24 hours of our return, DH was advised by his work to consider attending a 3 day conference at Coronado Springs Resort in late October 2010. After mulling it over for a week, he decided that it will be worth his while to attend.

DH will probably have to fly straight from Melbourne to Orlando (probably 26 hours), attend the conference for 3 days and then fly straight back to Melbourne (another 26 hours).

I must admit that the thought of all that flying for 3 days is something that I'm not keen on doing.

I'm not likely to make a decision either way until all the flights and hotel details are sorted out for DH...which will take us into July, possibly August. I also don't know if he'll be asked to make a detour stop in San Francisco; but in the meantime I will keep an eye out for flight deals - just in case.

I guess introductions are in order. This is me...recently taken on a Disney bus.

I hope you'll stick around to find out if I do indeed make it back to the World in October 2010...because I really don't know if I'm going or not (yet). But I must admit that I'm really hoping to go, and have started this PTR - just in case.

To Ticker or not to Ticker - that is the question?
