My First Trip Report! - "Escape from New York" - completed

My apologies for posting this so long after the fact. This is my first ever trip report.


Myself, my DW of 6 years, and 4-year-old DD, are DVC members. I have been vacationing at WDW since I was a kid. I brought my DW for her first ever trip back in ’98. I think she is hooked. She has now been there 12 times , including the trip I am writing about here. My DD has been to WDW 5 times already. We have yet to visit any other Disney property outside of WDW.

We had just taken a trip to WDW at the end of March 2010. Then, in the summer of 2010 we found out that our family would be growing!! Almost immediately we wondered how that would impact our next WDW vacation. After some thought, we decided to borrow from our 2011 points to squeeze in another trip before the baby! We had never been to WDW for the holidays, so we booked a trip for the week after Christmas and staying through NYE! And based on DW’s previous pregnancy, the trip would fall right in her second trimester, which was when she felt the best. It was genius!! We booked our stay for SSR from 12/26/10 thru 1/01/11. ADRs were made, flight was booked. We were wavering on adding DDP, but other than that, we were all set.
