It Was the Best of Times & the Worst, But It Was the Best Trip Evah!

Hello, I'd like to introduce myself & the rest of the crew. First is me, Doris AKA Wicket's Mom, then my Disney resistor DH, Bob. Next is my DIL Anne & our GDs Emily 8 & Kelly 5. This was the girls first visit to WDW. The dates of our trip were Sept.6 thru Sept.12 with our DIL & GDs going home Sept.10.


I had been planning to take my GDs on their first trip to WDW since our last trip in 2009. I wanted to share my love of Disney with them & see the look on their faces when they took it all in.

The week previous to our departure were extremely busy to say the least. My DH & I are involved in historical activities, including a huge event known as The Fair at New Boston. I have a large level of responsibility, so we must attend all weekend. I was really bogged down with responsibilites.

The Day Before Leaving

Labor Day was spent putting away our camp clothing & tent. I also had to finish with the packing for our trip & do the last minute details that have to be done before traveling. Our flight was leaving at 6:50AM on Tuesday .

Here is a photo of one of my usual outfits for the Fair. I have quite a few gowns, etc. for the historical interpretations that I do.



Getting on that plane Tuesday morning was the begining of a wonderful saga "that was the best of times, the worst of times & a far better trip than I have ever done", to paraphrase Charles Dickens!

Welcome, so glad that you're here!

We certainly had a great time in WDW. Of course there was a little drama, thus the worst of times!

I love this costume! It's great (but it looks really hot!)
