The Magic The Memories and THOSE people! An Aug PTR **GOING EARLY!!!**
Welcome to my very first PTR!!!
We’ll be heading back to WDW August 26th for a 6 night stay. It’s a return trip that we were not expecting to be taking actually. You see, we planned, actually, I planned is more like it, a trip last August. I spent months and months on these boards researching everything and the trip went off without a hitch. It was amazing! I had been 3 times before that, once as a child, once with a friend, and DH and I went on our honeymoon. DH had been as a child and our honeymoon. It was our first time taking the kids who were 7 and 4 at the time. We had a blast and now we come to this year...
The PTR Title....explained.
While researching last year I told DH about seeing how people go every year or several times a year and both of us started wondering how on earth they could afford it or even want to always go to the same place. Then we went. Before we even came home, DH said, we can’t wait 4-5 years to come back, which had been our plan because of the cost. So we tentatively said, we’ll be back in 2012. We’ll do every other year. Then Christmas rolled around and I got an email one day the week before Christmas. A marketing agency working for Disney told me that a video I had submitted to Disney new Memories website had made Disney “short list” of potential home videos they might use in commercials for their new “Let the Memories Begin” campaign. I had to sign several pages of release forms just incase. No problem, how exciting right? We were sent 5 beautiful Lithographs for our trouble. Then in January I saw a blog post about the new The Magic, The Memories, and You castle projection show and a Youtube link to a video of the show. I watched it. I was in tears half way through. I cry at Disney commercials, especially those new ones lately with the real home movies surprising the kids and stuff...But then I screamed, because right near the end I saw my little guy’s big smiling face on the screen. OMGosh! My video clip was in the show. It’s a split second, but still, it was exciting. Now I was freaking out, I mean, how can we not go and see it in person, I mean how many times is your kids face gonna be up there on Cinderella’s Castle???? Exactly...never again. I joked about it with DH, just to test the waters...It wasn’t until February and a lovely little 40% off Pin code that arrived by mail that DH said, we should go again, but we have to go cheaper. Less nights and no 1 bedroom villa as much as it pained him to not have the space. I was on it. Then I said to him...”hey check us out, we’re THOSE people, who go every year now!”
