The Stars Have Aligned! Mother/Son - 2nd Trip - MNSSHP, Hanson, F&W & DxDP!!!

Hello everyone! Thanks for joining me on this trip report!!! We are back (for a little over a month now) and I really wanted to get this done before the holidays so here we go! I decided to take a different route this time due to Photobucket not being able to handle my massive amount of pictures... sooo I'm writing a blog for my trip report. I will post the links here as I finish each day. Feel free to comment there or here and follow me along on our amazing trip!

Details:
Length of trip: 6 days/5 nights
Resort: Pop Century
Who: Me (mom) and DS5 (Dominic)
Dining: We lucked out and went during free dining so we upgraded to the Deluxe Dining Plan and enjoyed every second of it!
When: October 30, 2011 - November 4, 2011

This was a surprise trip. We booked on October 1st and it was my first time going "alone" on a trip and only my second time on an airplane. I'm not a fan of flying but if anything's going to get me to fly, it would be Disney on Halloween with Hanson.

I've been a fan of the band Hanson since I was 13. I've seen them and met them numerous times. Even my daughter, Lucy, is named after one of their songs.

To make the trip more stressful, we had a surprise 50th birthday party planned for my mother in law the day before we left. Everything went off without a hitch. She took the kids for the 2 days before so that I could "pack" our bags and get ready for the trip. We had her show up at exactly 3pm... we told her that we had hired Mickey & Minnie to be in our garage to surprise Dominic with the trip. So she pulled in the driveway exactly at 3pm and the garage door opened to reveal all of her friends & family yelling surprise. It was great!

It was a good way for me to keep my mind off of our trip as well. We were leaving the following morning at 3am for the airport and Dominic had no idea.

October 30th - 1st Day - MNSSHP
October 31st - 2nd Day - Hanson / F&W
November 1st - Animal Kingdom Day
November 2nd - Hollywood Studios
November 3rd - Magic Kingdom
