Can you do Disney in a weekend? We can!

Hey y'all! This will probably be one of the shortest PTRs ever! We're leaving on Friday afternoon for a weekend at Disney.

The reason? You need a reason to visit Disney??? Well, our great friends adopted a sweet little girl from one of my best friend's family members so we're going on her first trip to Disney with them. We're so excited that they invited us to go along. We're also celebrating my recent promotion at work.

We're only going for the weekend due to school and work schedules. It should be a fun trip and memorable if nothing else!

Alright...the travelers on this trip are the same as planned for our July trip....check out the PTR and TR here:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread....2#post31416892

I'll come back and add more things but want to try and get the basics up here now.

We're leaving on Friday afternoon - only four more big sleeps at home until we're sleeping at Disney!! We're not sure exactly what time, but at the very latest, we're hoping to be on the road by 5 and at the condo by about 10. We're staying with Angie and Sandy for the weekend so I have zero details on the condo. Dan's job for the week is to get the address and directions.

Saturday morning we're planning on heading to AK to go on a safari and ride a couple of rides. Then we're going to have lunch and head over to MK! We booked the Wishes Dessert Party for Saturday night as a "thank you" to Angie and Sandy for letting us stay with them! (for more details on the dessert party, check this out: http://www.disunplugged.com/2009/06/...dessert-party/) Hopefully this will allow the adults some "adult" time to "pig out" on stuff we all know we shouldn't have but that rule doesn't apply while you're at Disney!

Hopefully the kids will crash in their strollers either during Wishes or on the walk back to the cars. That should give them enough rest to be ready to get up and go Sunday morning!

Sunday morning we're planning on heading to DHS to ride TSM and hang out with the little kids while the daddys go watch the Stunt Show (if it's back from refurb). Then, if time permits, we'll hit EPCOT so Carter can ride the Nemo ride and Corbin can go on Soarin before we have to head back home and back to reality!

It's a super quick trip but we didn't want to miss Samantha's first trip to Disney so we're making due with an exhausting weekend!

I'm going to try and take some time today to see if we're able to get any ADRs for either morning as the boys eat breakfast better than anything else. If we can, we will one morning. If not, that's ok too! We'll just eat at the condo. If anything, we can always go and explore one of the resorts in the mornings before the parks open and check them out.

We're hoping for cool weather, good children and lots of fun for everyone! I will probably take more pictures on this trip than any of the other ones in two days just being Samantha's first trip. We're doing a photopass share with another friend so hopefully we'll have a LOT of pictures from this trip to go through.

I will update as soon as I have more info!

Hey all! We are on our way to Disney!!! About 4 hours and we'll be there. I just got off the phone with Disney Dining and made reservations for tusker house for 815 tomorrow morning. Should be a busy day with breakfast in the morning and the dessert party tomorrow night!

We are all ready to be at Disney and are trying to pass the time.

Thanks to Dans new phone, I'm hoping to give you guys some updates along the way


Have a super night. I'm being called to look for a mcdonalds - a special traveling treat as we don't usually eat there.

Hey all! We are about an hour from home and thought I would give a quick update. Saturday was good. Morning at AK, afternoon at MK. Today morning at DHS, afternoon at epcot. More details soon I promise!! Corbin has a nasty cough and hasn't felt good the past couple of days but seems better this afternoon

Can't wait to be home and sleep in my own bed!!

Grace and Rose (I hope I have that name right) I hope you are having a good time and staying dry!! Lisa I hope your sister is having a good time!
