My goal this year, to see ALL of WDW!!!!!

OK, don't have a trip planned until 2014, so we'll be renewing our AP's soon, so I'm gonna try to see every attraction, holiday, and even that I can within that year. There are a few things I haven't done, but I'm gonna start over this weekend with a HUGE list, and cross things off as I go.

So.....Before I head to the park Saturday, I'm gonna introduce myself. I am a HUGE disney lover, and my favorite character is Tigger. Moslty because he's always happy....and of course FUN FUN FUN!!! And, that's pretty much me.

The cast will change and vary widely, I'm involved in a couple of FB groups that meet up every once in a while, I'll introduce them as they come into play. The most constant is my son Tyler. He's a HUGE Star Wars fan, and tolerates my Disney obsession. I keep telling him other kids would LOVE to be in his shoes, being able to go to Disney every weekend!!!!!



That's him with our just gotten black lab puppy Mollie! She comes into play sometime, as I have Muscular Dystrophy, and she's my mama dog!! She's helped me quite a bit, and we're trying to teach her to help me up from a chair. So far so good. So, sometimes I'm in a wheelchair at DW, sometimes I walk with these beautiful beauties that my lovely DH painted for me!!



So...here's me!!



This one was taken this year in May when our niece came down with her family, this is my great nephew Andrew, who decided his favorite spot was on my lap in my chair!! I didn't complain, of course!!

Then my wonderful hubby. He's a grumpy lover, not cause he's grumpy, but just because. Not sure how that got to be his favorite character, he might have been in a grumpy mood once, and I saw a shirt, and just took off with it. He is in the Coast Guard, and has been for almost 16 years!! We've been married for 14 of those 16 years, and it has been wonderful!! Love the life we built together!!!



There will be others that come and go, I have a 14 year old step daughter that comes with us from time to time, and her mother. They may come down for this weekend's visit. I meet other disboarders as they come and visit the world, so they'll be in here too. I really my disboard friends!!!

So, when we have a for sure park day for saturday, I'll post the info here!! All are welcome, and if anyone have any requests for pictures, let me know, I'll do my best to help!!

My first follower!!! I'm gonna start putting together a list, park by park, of everything there is to see at that park, at the current time. My body won't let me do a few things sometime, but I'll just take my pain pills and grin thru it. 2 attractions come to mind, Dinosaur, and Stitch. I'll get thru them, somehow!! I think the plan this weekend is to go to AK, and then MK with my step daughter and her mother....so those will be the ones I concentrate on first!! Again, glad you're with me, now my biggest challenge is to remember to take the camera with me!!

I'll make the official start date Sept 1st, even tho we're not going to the park until the 3rd. So....lots of work ahead of me, but it's gonna be FUN!!!

This isn't an attraction, but more of a tidbit of history. there will be a small little hut, between Adventureland and Frontier Land. You have to walk passed POTC. the little hut/building used to sell E tickets when WDW opened. another one is over by the Tinkerbell shop, but I never found it

I love history too!!!! I barely remember using tickets for rides. My grandmother started taking us at least once a year around 1979, I was 5 years old. The hut by POTC is the shop that sells film, and the smaller souvies, right? I don't remember a hut by the Tinkerbell shop, but I'll look for a closet, or any thing that may resemble something old. I do remember the skyway, my grandmother griped at my sister for spitting off of it!!!

My husband still has some unused tickets for rides that he's kept all these years.
