Arrow 3 Generations! 2 Resorts! 10 Days! DxDp! 3000 Pictures! - Saying Good-Bye!

"Let the Magic Begin"...


WELCOME! WELCOME! WELCOME!

Fort Wilderness Cabins May 26th-May 28th
Contemporary Resort May 28th-June 4th


3547 Pictues (ok...so we did edit a few...I won't bore you with ALL of them)
18 Dining Reviews (We love to eat!!!!!!!)


Once again, 10 days of Magical blessings, fun and excitment were had by our family of 7...did I mention a little frustration, too?? Of course this should be expected with 3 generations spending every second together

Let the introductions begin...our 'Cast Members' for this TR are...

Disney Lovin' Dad (Bill)...yes...he loves it, too, and me (Heather)...the Disney Fanatic or Disney Dork (as my sister refers to me)...can there really be too much "Disney" in one's life???


Disney Lovin' Son...


Disney Lovin' Daughter...her favorite resort is the one with 'the pretty red roof'


Disney Lovin' Son...his favorite resort??...anywhere on property!!!


Disney Lovin' Grandparents...aka...Ma Hopie & Pop...(my parents) and let me add...44 years of wedded bliss!!! Aren't they cute?!




We are very blessed to have these 3 children in our lives...even if they do cause more gray hair...sometimes they like to argue, fuss, and fight...EVEN AT WDW...imagine that!!!





Next year, our entire family (my sister, too) will be celebrating my parent's 45th Wedding Anniversary on The Dream!!!!!!


So....here you have it...our family, 3 generations strong...ready to take you on our 10 day excursion to the most fantastic place on earth...Walt Disney World!!!

Stay tuned...next up...tons of pictures...Day 1 at Fort Wilderness Cabins!!!
