Hitting the Disney trifecta! a Nov 2013 PTR-and then some!(2/21-Trip #3 return!)
Hi there, and to my latest PTR. For those new to my PTRs and TRs, I am a 43-year old engineer living in the Buffalo, NY area and have been a fan of Disney and Walt Disney World literally all my life, but it wasn’t until 2006 when I went with my DW and DD (then 3) to stay on property that we really became hooked on the mouse. Including that trip we’ve done seven trips to the Florida park, and this will be our eighth as a family (10th overall for DW, probably about the 16th or so for me). We are now full-fledged “Mouse-Junkies” and can’t go too long without a fix.
By the time of this trip, we won’t have been to Disney World in 2 years, which is the longest we’ve gone without since then. This picture is from our last trip in November 2011, which also included my mom.
The reason we didn’t go in 2012 was we had a massive trip to Australia, which you are welcome to read about in the 2012 Trip Report linked in my signature. As part of that trip, we were able to get our “Disney fix” by stopping in LA and having our first ever visit to Disneyland. It was very, very cool to do, but I would say we still preferred WDW – perhaps the old “home resort” story.
But, there’s more to this PTR than a trip to Disney World! That’s right, in the next 12 months, we are looking at doing the Disney Trifecta!
“But, SkierPete – what exactly do you mean by the Disney Trifecta?” you ask. “Read on,” I respond!
This TR will actually look at THREE upcoming trips:
Trip #1- June, 2013: (less than 3 months away as I write this) we are joining the DIS unplug themselves in the Adventures By Disney: Backstage Magic Tour, which includes 3 days at Disneyland Resort in California. Our first (and probably only) ever ABD tour.
Trip #2- October or November 2013: 10 days at the Walt Disney World resort. Location and date still to be 100 % determined.
Trip #3- February, 2014: a 5-day Caribbean cruise aboard the Disney Wonder. Our first ever cruise of any kind.
So – the (US) Disney Trifecta that I speak of: Disneyland, Disney World, and Disney Cruise Lines! All right here – and all covered in a single Pre-Trip Report. (with Trip Report links provided).
