Let me introduce us!! I'll start with my princesses, Emily (4) and Eva (1)!!





Princess Emily is 4 (5 in July) and is already a HUGE Disney fan! She has been to Disney 4 times. First at the age of 10 months (May 07), then 22 months (May 08), almost 3 (May 09) and finally at 4 (Dec 10)! She assumes she'll be going again when she's 5 and keeps saying she'd like to go in the fall for my birthday (Oct 9th) Funny thing is, she has no idea we have this trip planned and that her BFF Lilian is going too! Anyway, Emily is funny, emotional, sarcastic and brilliant! She has always had a love for learning and is reading at a 1st grade level. Her favorite Disney movie is Snow White and her favorite rides are TT, ToT, Soarin, IASW, HM....all of them!! She's looking forward to Space Mountain this time around! She was an inch too short in Decemeber, but is closing that gap quickly!







Princess Eva is 1 and teeny tiny like Tink! Maybe we should call her Pixie Eva! We were pixie dusted on our May 2009 trip and came home pregnant with her, our real life Disney Souvenir!! She loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Little Einsteins. Eva enjoyed her 1st trip to Disney in Dec 2010 at 11 months old! She was in awe of all of the Christmas lights and decorations (so were we!!) Her favorite rides are IASW and Winnie the Pooh! Eva is just starting to talk, but her personality is already strong! She loves to laugh, is a daredevil and likes to get into everything! Definitely my trouble maker!! I can't wait to take my girls back to the World!!



Eva's shirt in the above picture was a surprise that Stephanie (Charlefours) made for Eva for our last trip! It says, "Disney Souviner"!! Minnie Mouse got quite a kick out of it!! Many people commented about how cute it/she was!! Thanks again Stephanie!!



Now on to the King and Queen!!



Me, Wendy - 36 Mom, wife and Disney lover. I am usually found hauling my kids around town to school, dance, etc! I enjoy reading, crafting, Targeting, lounging on the couch and sleeping! I am the one who plans our magical vacations! I usually book when we are going and then let my DH know!! I've been a busy bee lately with a new business that Stephanie (Charlefours) and I have started, but Disney is always on my mind!! My favorite Disney movie is Meet the Robinsons and my favorite ride is Splash Mountain or Soarin' or...well, I'm going with Emily on this one and saying all of them!!



DH, Mike - 36 Loving husband and World's Greatest Daddy! He brings home the bacon and loves playing video games! Mike loves Disney too, but leaves the planning to me, unless we're talking ADRs! Mike is a foodie and always has an input as to where we eat! His favorite Disney movie is UP! and his favorite rides are Soarin' and Haunted Mansion!


We'll be staying at Pop this time on the DDP from Sept. 24 - Oct 2nd!!




I love the DIS and have been talking for years with some great people. I have been very fortunate to meet a few of you and even create true friendships! In fact, last year Stephanie and I met on here, realized we lived about 3 miles from each other and now we hang out just about every day! We have become great friends and our DDs, Emily and Lilian, are BFFs!! DISers ROCK!!

I'm ready to start planning so let's get this party started!!

Okay, here are my introductions.

There is my darling Disney loving husband, Mark. Mark has the warmest heart and the sweetest personality in the world. Disney is his favorite place to be (he wants to work there when he retires):



Then there is me, Kathy, the Disney planner. I want Mark to retire so he can work at Disney and I can play in Florida:



This is the two of us last year with Mary's (MaryAZ) adorable urchins...I mean daughters...who we had a blast with on our last trip and can't wait to see this trip, along with all of all the other DISer's we're going to meet...princesses and pirate included.
