Me too! I really wasn't looking forward to seeing an imposter. She made the trip feel "official"!

Glad you're along for this trip!

The Plan:

What a complicated trip to get planned! Unfortunately this is just going to get more complicated from here. I don't do Disney in the heat. So that leaves me only around 3 good Disney months per year. Oh, and I don't do crowds. Well, not by choice anyway. So that limits it even more. So every year since Kindergarten, I have taken Katie out of school for a week to visit Disney.

The problem of course is that I haven't found a way to talk her into freezing time. This year she was off to middle school. And while she has never had issues with missing school, she did express some hesitation this year. Since most of our planning is done months in advance, she had no idea how hard it would be to miss a week of middle school and catch back up.

I did finally get her on board with the plan (Really honey, we like good grades and all.... but this is DISNEY! ) and we finalized some dates. Just like the last 2 years, we chose the second full week of December, just after parade taping and Pop Warner. The original plan was to leave Saturday the 8th, but our schedules seldom just pop out completely done. They usually underogo a lot of revision, and this one was no different.

My husband likes Disney, and usually wants to go. But he doesn't quite understand why anyone would want to do a park more than one day. Or any ride more than once (well, except for his favorites!). Or meet any character other than Mickey or Chip & Dale. Once he's done all that, he's done. So my favorite trips are when he comes along, we enjoy all that he likes, then he goes home and lets us character hunt in peace!

Like last year, our friends would be travelling to Disney at the same time, and we arranged to meet them in the parks for some girl time later in the week.

My biggest concern in scheduling was wanting to see the Fantasyland Expansion. All we knew at the time was that it would be open for "Holidays 2012". Of course, that's pretty vague. But I didn't want to take a chance on missing it. Even then, I was thinking I'd want to get back to Disneyland in 2013. And I knew I couldn't stand 2 years of hearing everyone talk about New Fantasyland before I saw it. So I really needed to catch it this time and go as late into 2012 as I could handle.

I was less than thrilled when I found out the Grand Opening was set for the day we were arriving. Remember..... not so fond of crowds. But I crossed my fingers and moved forward.

Really? Your favorite trips are when he comes along and then leaves. Come on be truthful, you like the alone trips way better.

LOL, as long as we get enough girl time, then I really do like when he comes and we get to enjoy Disney with our one child who has not yet turned to the dark side of ..... shall we say..... Disney avoidance.

Of course, it does help that by the time he decides for sure to come along, I have our other plans set and always end up adding extra days to the trip. That helps a lot.

OK, quiz time. What day did I take these photos? They definitely are related to the trip.

I'm here! I'm here! Super excited for another one of your trip reports, and to see all of dresses that Katie wears throughout the week! I saw one of her in a blue Belle dress hanging out with Gaston on tumblr earlier in the week, haha!

I hope everything ends up working out with the crowds and opening or FLE! From the first picture of Katie on 2 phones, I would guess it would be the day of making ADRs hah!
