I wanna go to Izney World! A 1st timer's PTR May/June 2011
My PTR got its name from my 2 ½ year old little girl. Every time we talk about Mickey or any of the princesses, her first response is to yell “I wanna go to Isney World!”. We made a countdown chain about a week ago so she would have a tangible way to count down the days. I’ve been doing my best to teach both the girls about WDW so they’ll know what to expect when we get there. This site has been great for that… reading through TRs and showing the girls pictures of people with the characters, and pictures of the rides.
This is my 1st PTR. It’s actually my first time planning a trip to Disney World OR a family vacation. What a 1st family vacation to be planning! We went on one last summer to the beach, but we went with my ILs who did most of the planning (and paying ). This year it’s just the 4 of us!
Which brings me to the cast of characters…
1st is me, Sara- the Mom. I’m 26 and a stay at home mom to 2 beautiful little girls. I’m the planner for everything, but I won’t lie- I love it! I have spreadsheets, lists and a whole notebook of info I’ve gathered from this website, 2 huge books and a couple other websites. There sure is a lot of info out there about Disney! I’ve been to WDW several times, but this is my 1st trip as an adult. My family lived in Orlando when I was 0-3 y/o, and had annual passes, but obviously I don’t remember any of those trips. There were a couple trips in elementary school that I vaguely remember. But it’s been a LONG time. The last time I went to MK, Splash Mountain was just being built!
Next up, DH (Andrew)- the Dad. He’s 27 and works as a retail manager. Not the most glamorous job, but it pays the bills and lets me stay home with our girls. He’s been to Disney World a handful of times, most recently in 2001 as a high school senior on a class trip. So, it’s been a while for both of us!
Next is Alexis. She is 2 ½. She will turn 3 a little less than 2 months after we return from our trip. We thought we’d go once while they were young to take advantage of not having to pay for their tickets! So we wanted to go before July, and the dates we picked we got to take advantage of free dining! Woohoo! Alexis loves all things Princess. Her favorite changes every day, but we have almost all of the Princess dvds and watch them all.the.time. She also loves Mickey and the gang, we watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse all the time too!
Last, but not least is Kaitlyn. She is 1 ½. She’ll be 20 months when we go on our trip. She’s really just along for the ride. She prefers Barney to anything else (it’s a shame our budget won’t allow for a day at Universal!... or 2, mommy and daddy are big HP fans!) But, she does like all the movies that big sis makes her watch, and she can dress up like a Princess with the best of them She’s a little more adventurous than her sister, so we’re hoping she’ll set the example when it comes to meeting characters and riding rides!
Up next, our itinerary and ADRs!
