You Guys Part of the Family? You've Got the Magic In Your Eyes!!->Updated 10/19x3!!!!
Hellllloooo Hummaaannnsss!!! (and any other kind of creatures that may or many not be able to read this trip report) and WELCOME!!! Its me again (Katt that is), and I have just returned from my most recent trip down to Disney World, and am once again going to share all of the magic and memories and insanity with you! We had such an amazing trip, in total I was down there for 11 days, we split between two amazingly beautiful resorts, and had a blast. We had some incredible adventures, practically backstage experiences, multiple character meets (in which, a certain someone *may* have let a not so Disney appropriate word slip out?! ) and there were many happy tears shed, and may pixie dusted moments! Now, onto the details that you need to know!
I am your fearless TR writer and lover of all things Disney, my first trip to the parks was in 1997, and was to DLR, then last May, I went to WDW for the first time, and followed that up by 2 more trips that year, and 4 more trips down to Disney property in 2012 (not including this Sept one) I travel with different people all the time, and have gone solo as well, and not to fret, I do have an annual pass (which saves me a ton on ticket prices!). Ive been performing my whole life, and now have a little obsession with getting into the Disney company to work somehow, whether that be being friends with characters, or dancing in parades, or some of the shows, I do not care, bringing that magic alive to others is just something that I dream of doing!! My favorite characters include Tigger, Tinkerbell, Periwinkle, Ariel and Rapunzel, and some of my favorite rides include Splash Mountain, the People Mover, Expedition Everest, and Tower of Terror!
My Mother: (Ann, will be referred to as Mom for the remainder of the TR)
Mom has never been to Disney World before (her parents waited until the kids were all grown up and moved out before they went to any form of Disney) but back in 1997 she took me to Disney Land over Spring break, and that was about it for her park experience. This trip celebrated her being an awesome Mom, and her birthday (as her actual birthday is Sept 2nd) and it was a surprise all paid for by me! I had a bunch of things like a back pack, and photo album for her for Christmas, and then she had a little scrap book telling her where wed be going for her Bday celebrations, and SURPRISE, its not Banff, its DISNEYWORLD!
Next up is Paige:
Shes 18, and newly graduated, and has always been a huge Disney nut. She traveled to Disney land in the past, but it was her first time at WDW. We used to work together at a dinner theatre up here, and I would always ask her to come on trips, but she was still in school, so when this opportunity arose, I knew I had to ask her! Paige was definitely one of the people who truly loves and appreciates Disney, and I knew Id have an amazing time with her, especially once we got talking about youtube videos and how we would both be sitting at home watching them crying, haha!! We get along great! Paiges favorite characters include Goofy, Tink, Ariel and Rapunzel, and she definitely has a fondness for Space Mountain, Everest and Tower of Terror!
When: September 10-21st 2012! The trip was split up like this though: Sept 10-17 was my Mom and I, with Paiges trip starting on the 15-21, so they overlapped for a day and a half!
Sept 10-17th was the Deluxe half of the trip, staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge with a Savannah view! I have wanted to stay here for the longest time, it just seemed so awesome, and my Mom loves all things Africa, so I figured it would be a good choice. Originally, I had us booked in to a pool view room, but then figured, if I was splurging, I should just go all the way, and get a Savannah view room! Yay! I justified by saying that this trip was longer, and I figured wed spend a little more time in the room than usual, haha!
The second half the trip (checking in Sept 15 til the 21st) was at Disneys Art of Animation Resort, staying in the Little Mermaid Standard Rooms! This resort had looked absolutely amazing, and combined a bunch of my favorite movies, I was hoping that I could stay in the LM rooms, and when I found out that the standard rooms were the LM rooms, I knew we had to book in there! Love love love!!
We managed to get Free dining when we booked (for both trips!) it was my first time on something other than the quick service dining plan, so I had a blast picking and choosing the ADRs for the trip, with some old time favorites, and some new adventures to try! We also attended two separate Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Parties, and had many adventures planned for this 11 day adventure!!
And now that all of the intros are done, we can get on with the show!!
