OCD Princess Planners: Flights, Frights, Food, & a ToT Race, Too!!!

Welcome everyone! Please bear with us on this adventure to our Happy Place! By the time we take our trip, it will have been two years almost of planning process! We are the OCD Princess Planners and this is our story for the Fall of 2013!

Introductions: (These are all from lilpixiebabe101. Everyone will add their own flair in their own words after the index page. I guess since were the OCD ones, I'll go in alphabetical order after mine lol! )

Me: Ashley1 (lilpixiebabe101) (Louisiana)

I'm a Massage Therapist who loves all things Disney. I have way too much going on between life and the 70+ hours a week I work, so I tend to have good intentions on doing things... like finishing my Trip Report... and then other things need to be done more! I'm a Disney Addict. I have a 3 year old little girl, named Alexa, who loves ALL things Disney and a fiancee, Buddy, who doesn't understand since he has never been nor had a desire to go. Hence, why I need my girls to get my Disney fix. This will be my 28th trip to WDW. My favorite character is Tink!

Amy (shocky5) (Oklahoma)

is a consultant for a pediatrics center part time and went back to teaching this year, so now she's on the same school time as her kiddos! This is her family. Eddy her DH, Erin her DD, and Nate and Nolan her DS'. Amy's life has been filled the last few weeks with every kind of ball and practice her kids could possibly play! Amy's kids loved deserting her on rides through the "Too Cool to Ride" exit! She would pay them back though with some very interesting ride photos! Maybe she will share!

Ann (Annmarieda) (Washington)

is the first diser I started following for our Christmas reports last year. This is her family minus her DD Kira and DSIL Josh. This is Ann with her husband Steve, her two son's Zach and Alex, and her younger daughter Princess Zoe! She works in some kind of Advertisement field type job in supermarkets. (I'm sure she will tell more.) Ann is a flight stalker. Even if she doesn't have a trip in the works.. she is stalking. Never fear flight drama will be included in this PTR! And Ann is the Queen of "Making it Work", and she would definitely make Tim Gunn proud! I know she has been many, many, many times. She is leaving next week to do the ToT 10 miler and will be doing the Princess half marathon in the late winter with Betsy!

Ashley2 (Ashxf) (Louisiana)

is my coworker, travel companion, and one of my two best friends. She is a full time librarian at our state college, a part time massage therapist, and a mommy to a precious little soon to be one year old baby boy, Garrett. She will one day be my twin. Her married name and my one day married name are literally the same. She works too hard just like me and needs this vacation! At least her hubby, Russell, has been to Disney before and understands at least what she is rambling about from time to time. Her favorite character is Figment.

Heather (MonknMom) (New York)

Above is Heather, DH Kaung (spelling heather?) but she calls him K, and DS Damien. Heather is a stay at home mom who is never home between volunteering at her DS' school, visiting and taking care of her relatives and her in-laws, and getting remodel/repairs done on the house there and DH bought a little over a year ago! She has soooo much going on that she told us to plan this trip, and she would just "show up"! Silly girl, we'll bring back the OCD planner in you!

Susan (swwake) (Texas)

This is Susan's family + a few extras from her last trip. She is the one in the back without glasses, then there is her DSister, DN with the Ariel red hair, Santa Clause of course, DD Katie, and DH Chris or Dude as he has come to be called apparently. I'm sure there's a story there! I know there is one involving him from our dismeet at Christmas!! . Susan is a CPA for a big firm, and we will lose her pretty much from January till April. Her and her DH LOVE to travel. She actually won a cruise that she will be taking in a few weeks! She's not 100% sure she can go yet, but she's going to be along for the ride here! Hopefully for the whole time if she can go!

Tammie (momabarrjo) (Texas)

And last, but certainly not least is Tammie! Tammie thinks herself another Mom to a few of us! And she's probably right! We confide in her like she is an awesome one! This is her crazy family at Christmas! Her DH Jeff, who was anti Disney before his first trip ( and now hints he wants her to plan another trip!), DD Abby, DS Goo, and DS Boo. (I know the youngest is Joseph, but can't remember Goo's real name to save my life! She calls them Goo and Boo, so it's what I've gotten used to! ) She is a amazing scrapbooker. She is a teacher's teacher. That is what I'm going to call you Tammie, and you can explain it more!


So here is our crew of wonderful ladies. We have all known each other for a year and a half now. Some of us met up while in WDW during our Christmas 2011 trips. (Don't get sad Tammie!) I have a few pictures from those meets, and a few will post some that they have too I'm sure!



Well, I will close for now, put up an index page, and let the fun begin!

I would like to point out that I tried to meet up with Tammie since she was still there when I was coming back, but her family were revolting against her OCD planning ways.

Is there an update on last night's chat? I can't get FB at work, and not sure how long it would take to read through the whole chat.

Susan, I think the ruling decision last night was waiting until Ann and Betsy' trip next week and see what kind of bounce back offer they get offered. It's it's a free dining bounce back, that would be sweet and we could do two value rooms for around $165 per person for the 4 nights and we would have the CS free dining. Or we can still rent Dvc points. AKL suites for 115$ value/165 savannah. Or the villa. 160$value 222 savannah.
