Thumbs up Some Day Our Trip Will Come.....Our Easter 2009 Pre-Trippie.....

Well here goes-all or nothing ,please be gentle with me i wound easily .Pull up a chair,make sure you have a cup of Tea or Coffee to hand,or a Baileys-Kerry,Claire+Nat and some munchies and let the story begin......

Cast
Me-Michelle 34yrs.Planner,Loves Disney,Tink,Seuss Landing+kid's rides.Hates Height's,Backwards Stuff,Spinning+Getting Wet,

Dh-Tony 30yrs.Likes Disney,Loves IOA,All rides-the faster the better.

Dd7-Chloe 7yrs(will be 8 over there).Loves Tink,HSM,Cinderella.Hates Spinning rides.

Dd4-Emily 4yrs.Loves Tink,HSM,Stitch,Cinderenda+Shamoose.Hates Loud noises,fireworks.

Well lets go back abit,as most of you know i was raised by my Nan+Grandad and it was way back in Nov 1990 at the age of 15 that i got my first taste for 'All Things Disney',when they took me to California for my 16th Birthday .We had a fantastic time,and i will never forget the look of sheer horror on my Nan's face when we got off of the Matterhorn ,now bear in mind my Nan was 'only' 61yrs then.After that it was 'It's A Small World' from then on for her .Only Me+Grandad went on the majority of the rides after that.

Sep 1993-Quality Inn I Drive.

Sep 1995-Holiday Inn I Drive.I have a picture to share with you,i was 20yrs+my Grandad was 56yrs.I love this photo so much

After this trip,i moved out of home but still continued to holiday with my Grandparents .

Sep 1997-Castle Inn+Suites Anaheim.

Sep 1998-Best Western Anaheim.This trip was for my Nan's 69th birthday,Grandad was 59yrs+i was 23yrs..


Then in Nov 1999,i re-met Tony ,In Nov 2000 he proposed to me on my 26th birthday,Chloe was born in Apr 2001 and we got married in Aug 2001,yes we did'nt hang about ,life's too short.We never had a honeymoon as Chloe was only 4months old when we married+we did'nt want leave her or take her abroad at such a young age.So in...

Aug 2003-Quality Inn I Drive,we took a belated honeymoon+Chloe stayed with Tony's Mum ,something we never done again as we missed her terribly.3 days after we came home we booked our next trip for the 3 of us to go back the following year,as we felt so bad that she never experienced it with us .We had a great time,but a huge part of us was missing+we spoke to Chloe every night.

Apr/May 2004-Holiday Inn I Drive,


We had the time of our lives,and never wanted this perfect holiday to end.To see this holiday thru the eyes of our daughter was an amazing experience.Chloe still remembers parts of this holiday to this day even though she had only just turnt 3yrs at the time.

Fast forward all the way to Dec 2007,we had been longing for this month+year to roll around so we could book to go back to the Greatest Place On Earth .Emily was now with us after being born in Feb 2005.We thought we would wait for Emily to be 4 before we went back as she was'nt as tall as Chloe was at her age when she went+hoped she might stretch a bit by giving her an extra year .
Well,thankfully without the aid of a stretching machine Emily did grow .

Here is a recent pic taking in Dec 2008 at the Hilton Hotel..


So after an agonising 15months of waiting,and in exactly 3 weeks time today-Apr 1st,we will be flying with Virgin and staying at the Hilton Hotel Embassy Suites International Drive South for 16 nights ,we thought because we have'nt been back for 5 years we would go a little upmarket .We are really looking forward to this hotel,have a nosey here if you're interested http://www.embassysuitesorlando.com/ .
We have Orlando Flextickets(14 days)+Magic Your Way 7 day Disney tickets.

Continued below.................

Great trip report Michelle - always good to put names to faces.

I'm sure after all the planning and waiting it will be fab - and you certainly have a lot planned to make the most of your stay.

Looking forward to the pics and report when you return. Hope you have a fantastic holiday.
