Glitter, Magic, Fun and Food - a Jan-Feb 2012 PTR

Welcome to my first ever PTR. We will be taking our first family vacation to Disney in January. We're staying at the Polynesian from Jan 28 – Feb 4 and will be flying down. There’s going to be a lot of firsts on this trip and we’re looking forward to sharing them together.

First let me introduce the family and the reason we’re going on the trip

This is DD and DW. DD will be 15 months when we take the trip and it will be her first time. She already LOVES Winnie the Pooh as evidenced by her 1st birthday décor below (DW did a wonderful job on it all) and has a healthy interest that’s growing in other Disney related items (her Minnie, Patch (a gift for her cousin which she called dibs on with many many kisses once she had a chance to get her hands on him), and Dumbo stuffed animals.

This will also be the first trip for DW who will be in between 4-5 months pregnant on the trip. She doesn’t get some of the ideas behind Disney and what makes it so magical however she has an open mind and has found quite a few items to be excited about to include watching fireworks on the poly beach, tonga toast, and animal kingdom!

Both DW and DD are avid animal lovers. We have a dog and two cats which DD kisses more than she does us so I have a feeling we might end up at AK more than once on the trip and have planned some open days so that we can go wherever we choose.

I am a recent member of the Dis Dads and my last trip to Disney was about 10 or so years ago. I was lucky enough to have two trips to Disney as a kid and am quite excited about sharing the magic of Disney with my family. Being the Disney veteran of the family DW is letting me plan most of the trip which I appreciate but also now have a good appreciation for what she does when she plans things.

We’re going on the Dining plan and have a healthy schedule of ADR’s and QS meals to allow us flexibility and new experiences while getting the most from our credits.

In follow-up posts I’ll be talking about some of the funny moments that brought us to this point in our planning, excitement, and other related items.
