She's a Princess, a Superhero, and a Rock Star -a Sept 2013 TR (Completed 2/24)
Welcome to our trip report. This is our second TR, as this trip was a bounce back we booked during our first trip to WDW since our daughter was born. For background, our first TR is here.
To read all about our plans for this trip, here's a link to our PTR.
Like our previous reports, we'll work together on this one, with Paul writing in Blue and Melissa writing in Orange. As a review, or introduction, here's who we are:
I am Paul, a 33 year old Mechanical Engineer and general car guy. My favorite Disney movie is Cars, and my favorite park is Epcot. My favorite character is Mater.
I'm Melissa, Allie's mommy. My family owns an elevator company and I work in the office. Allie gets to come to work with me and her job is signing for UPS packages which she takes very seriously. I like to sew in my spare time and I did a lot of it for this trip. If you're interested in how all of that was done you can check out our PTR. My favorite Disney character is Stitch but I'm a Perry the Platypus fan too. My favorite WDW park is Epcot followed closely by Animal Kingdom.
Here's Allie, the "she" in our reports and pretty much the center of everything around here. We'll include her input in this report, as she had more to do with what we did this year as she got older and became more familiar with what her favorite things to do were. Her favorite princesses are Ariel and Belle, but she is also super fond of Sofia the First too.
Melissa and I have known each other since we were little kids. Once we started dating, Disneyland was a common destination and we got annual passes for Melissa's birthday early on. I proposed to Melissa at our paving stone in front of Disneyland, and two years later (to the day) we were married at the Grand Californian hotel. We followed that up with an awesome honeymoon at Disney World. We returned to the world just before our daughter Allie turned three. My parents joined us on that trip and we all had a great time. We enjoyed it so much that we booked the bounce back to enjoy free dining once Allie turned three.
We stayed at the Wilderness Lodge, which has become our home at WDW. Even Allie said this trip, "you call it the hotel, but I call it home."
We had a great trip and took a TON of pictures. We can't wait to relive the trip and share it with all of our DIS friends!
