I was a lurker on your last TR since I came in late, but I'll out myself here since I am joining you from the start. Your DS is too cute for me not to follow along. Keeping my fingers crossed for a healthier trip for you this time around!

I Have A Confession....

.....I'VE BEEN HOLDING OUT ON YOU GUYS!
So, my old readers will remember that my last PTR, which was my first, all started because of a binder. I had a binder to organize all the reservations, etc. for our trip. I later find out that there is an entire crew of people who are as obsessed with their binders as I am. Some are worse than I am which makes me feel better. I met Jordan on a thread somewhere talking about his binder and that is how I found his PTR. After reading it, I decided that I had to do a PTR too. I had not even thought about doing one before that.

My trip binder has made it through 2 trips now and is starting to show signs of wear. So, what do you think the 2nd thing I did was after DH told me to book another trip?? You got it.....I got a new binder!! I've been secretly filling it with things for our new trip while finishing up my other TR.

Friends new and old, I present to you my new binder.........




Ok, dates.... We are going to the World again From May 3-8th. We are staying 5 nights at Port Orleans Riverside. This is HILARIOUS to me because DH and I always swore we would never stay at the Port Orleans resorts because we are from Louisiana. What's the point of taking a vacation from Louisiana to be in Louisiana??? Just seemed silly to us. Well, being as though this is a make up trip, which means it is our 2nd trip in one year. We had to make some cut backs. We took off a day, and dropped our resort price from the Villa's to Moderate. You'd be amazed how much of a difference in price this has made from last time to this time. Anyhoo, I wanted to try CBR but there are conventions going there and frankly I couldn't find very many reports on it that said it was clean. They all complained about how dirty it was. There are 2 things I like in a resort or hotel. CLEAN and QUIET. I compared the PO resorts with Coronado Springs and decided the PO's were prettier and seemed cleaner & more quiet. I originally booked the French Quarter but after seeing Scottny's pictures of FQ and Riverside, it was clear that Riverside was probably the better choice. I called and switched everything over to Riverside.

Nice Binder! I'll have to post a picture of my pathetic WDW folder on my PTR. It's very sad compared to all of the beautiful binders I have come across on the Dis.

Can't wait to hear about POR! That's one of our choices for part of our stay next year.

I love your binder! You have inspired me to go to Staples, buy a binder, and get crackin'. Right now all of my Disney info is in a folder and it's a mess.

I'm curious about your ADRs. But I'm sure there coming soon

Love your new Binder!!!

I love all the different Mickey Mouses you have on it..

So cool


Speaking of Louisiana, I was telling my mom(Disneymommom), about your Pre-trip and how you were now on Our pre trip report and I mentioned you were from Louisiana, too.

She was excited and asked what part. She lives in Dry Prong. Have you ever heard of that town or city? Not familiar with LA at all can ya tell


Now back to your report...POR is awesome...My dh and I stayed there on our Honeymoon in 98(when it was called Dixie Landings). It is gorgeous and so peaceful. There are bike rentals, boat rentals, fishing, etc....It is Pure Heaven


Can't wait to hear what is next

There are binders much better than mine on the Dis. Mine serves it's purpose and looks a little pretty. I don't get too fancy with it.

Thanks about the binder!
Dry Prong...isn't that in the sticks?? Sorry, not laughing at her. "the sticks" just cracks me up. Yes, I'm a moron sometimes.
It's up there north of Alexandria, isn't it? Never been there but I think I know where it is. I'm down south.
I'm really excited about POR. It seems really pretty. I plan on us renting one of those surry bikes. We were supposed to do that at OKW last time but as you can imagine, I was not in the mood to go peddling around the resort.

You are totally right and she would agree with you..she lives in the sticks for sure

Yep, that does sound about right from what she tells me

Yeah, I could imagine the last thing you felt like doing on your last trip was riding a bike
