*Done! 3/6* Dec 2012 -The awesome now TR report that lacks a catchy title - Done!
For those of you here for my Trip Report it starts on page 7!
Completed! Page nine has lots of my favorites from the trip!
Pre Trip Report!
So this is my first pre trip report and I am not much of a writer. However I am mildly obsessive about planning any and all things. Especially Disney! So here are some of the basic details. My husband, and 2 daughters will be traveling from NH to Orlando, and my Moms (My mom and my mother in law) will be traveling from NJ into Tampa. So here is a little background on all of us.
Me I work PT at Home Depot and mostly a stay at home mom. Ive been to Disney more times than I can remember from my youth, spent my honeymoon there in 2004, and then have been going back since 2010. My favorite memories are the time I spent with my family in WDW. WDW has always been magical because growing up its when my family got a long best.
Husband works at HD as well, except he is salaried and a workaholic/perfectionist. Loves the outdoors and hiking. Works a lot of hours and gives up so much for our daughters and me that we really use our trips to WDW as our escape. He of course was on our honeymoon and subsequent trips. He really opened up to the idea of vacationing in WDW after seeing the Disney magic through my daughters eyes on our 2010 trip. My favorite memory with my husband was on our honeymoon we spent days taking silly pictures and Im hoping that someday we can take a 2nd honeymoon to WDW, but thinking maybe a few date nights to recreate that fun
Zoey She is my first born Right now almost 3. She is beautiful, confident, and much to none of my influence a princess. She loves Mickey & Minnie mouse, and loves all her clubhouse friends, loves Toy Story, A Bugs Life, Monsters Inc, Nemo& Well let's put it this way she loves all Disney and Pixar movies. Her first trip was in 2010 at 13 months. My favorite Disney memory of her is when she met Winnie the Pooh she latched on to him and didnt want to let go. I think at that moment she would have replaced him for her family.
Olive My 2nd and last munchkin. She will be turning 1 in 2 weeks!!! She loves sorcerer Mickey. She is turning into her own person now. Developing her own little quirks. She reminds me a lot of me. She is driven, determined and not going to stop until she gets it or figures out a way to get it. She has this smile that lights up her entire face. Olives first trip was when she was 10 weeks old. My favorite Disney memory of her was on our first night of that trip. It was late, we wanted to go to a park and decided that a great idea was to walk around the world showcase in the dark, with all the countries lit up and do some shopping (I am a sucker for Guerlain I swear it smells better from Disney and the Japan Pavilion) and this little mush would not lay, sleep, eat or anything in her stroller. I was feeling frustrated that already on the first night our trip might be a bust, until my husband picked her up and she got the view she wanted. She spent the entire time taking it all in and was the easiest traveler on that trip.
My Mom If this were Facebook and we had a relationship status it would be its complicated However, I do want my daughters to know their family. My mom is a big Disney fan and was the original DVC owner from 1993 in OKW.
Zacks Mom She is awesome and I am so excited she is coming. She hasnt been to Disney since 1971 so I am assuming this can be considered a first trip! She is very much involved in our lives, and I do look forward to sharing this trip with her and utilizing her for Date Nights
I am hoping to figure out how to upload photos. I am semi-simple when it comes to technology. Some things I get- they go to me to fix all the electronics at work, but other things I need more time and some figuring out. Both of which I am running out of right now because the girls are waking up! Here are some of our trip basics.
We are all flying in on 11/30. We are taking a morning flight via Southwest into Orlando. My moms are taking an afternoon flight via United into Tampa. All of our tickets have been purchased! We will be departing on 12/8 we will fly out around noon and my moms will be leaving at about 5pm. Our first night which was supposed to be in a value sweet at AoA turned into me buying one time use points for a 1BR Villa at AKL Jambo my husband, his mom and my girls will all spend the night there, while I will be renting a 1 value room for my mom somewhere. Not sure which resort yet any opinions, recommendations are welcomed. It needs to be two things though cheap and on Disney property! That Saturday we will check in at our 3BR villa at OKW! I am hoping for an early check in but I am also requesting a VIP cleaning due to allergens hoping it all works out in my favor! Well this is all I have time for now I will add our basic itinerary and ADRs next time and maybe a few photos!
Also let me apologize in advance for the lack of a catchy title. Im not feeling very clever today!
