I often say trip reports and pictures are what keep me sane until our next WDW vacation. So, thanks for your contribution to my sanity.
I couldn't agree with you more about the pictures! I have never done a trip report but enjoy reading everyone elses. But my pictures do help me make it to the next WDW trip!

I'm in!
My favorite parts so far:
the pictures
the report itself
seeing the names of the people I meet at the May Meet and having a face to put with their names!
Love it all!

Hurrah! You started!! And a great start it is!

Your kids look adorably sleepy with just the right amount of excitement at 4am!

to the accident blocking five lanes of traffic! Oy vey!!

Julianna is quite a photographer- looking forward to more of her photos and to "Rusty's" food reviews!

Very relieved to see in some of your replies that rain didn't interfere too badly.

Can't wait for more.

Alan, what kind of dog do you have? He is soooo cute.

Too bad about the traffic holdup in Atlanta. When we drive we have to go through there as well, but usually we hit Atlanta in the middle of the day since we are coming from Cincinnati. My DH has made sure though that I can reroute us off highways when there are traffic jams due to accidents. I am his personal GPS since he won't just buy one of his own.

Hi Alan, Glad to see that you started your trip report. I lurked on your previous reports and enjoyed them very much!! Figured I would bite the bullet, and actually post on this one We were there about the same time that you were. The 16th to the 25th. Had a great time, despite the rain..

I was SO excited to see you were starting a new trip report. Yours from last year was the first ever report I read on the DIS. I remembered you being from AL in your last report but I just realized you're from Jacksonville. I live in White Plains; we're practically neighbors. I can't wait to read more of your trip. We're heading down June 8-12 and again Oct 10-17 so I will be looking for some good tips.

my silly sister lives in Atlanta. She says it takes her 1 and half to get to work every morning. That just crossing town. Yikes! Sorry about the delay. Love the pictures too!

Thank goodness you made it through Atlanta. My daughter goes to missionary college in Cleveland, Georgia and the only way to get there is either straight through Atlanta or the loop around Atlanta....both of which are horrible. It's like her leader said..."pick your poison" when traveling Atlanta.

2014 trip report: Disney dangled the visual weinee and Mickeystoontown gobbled it up! Our two week adventure!

Great start Alan. I wish I had a 10 hour drive to disney, unfortunately it is more like 24. Good Luck on the hot Dog Business If I lived in your area I would be a really good customer Hot Dogs are DS 7 favorite food.

I'm really enjoying this little vacation

Thanks TEAM RENFROE. It's so good of you to share your vacation. I am in the pre-planning stages and we will be staying at CSR too. Thanks again.
Fanatic since my first trip in 1971!
