How Do Pirates Celebrate 10 and 25 yr Anniversaries? Update 6/14 ADRs booked

The Answer:

GO TO DISNEY!!!!!!!!

Cast of Characters:
Me 32 call me Dee:I am the planner of the family. I would live and work at Disney if I could. I breath, sleep and do all that is Disney.
Dh 31 we will call him Goofy ( since we call him that all the time anyway) He had never been to Disney until after we were married. Likes Disney but not as much as me. He is a big kid and is a great husband and father.
DM Nana : My mom. She helped reinforce my love for Disney. She and my Stepdad go multiple times a year and swear that when they retire from their jobs they have now they are going to go to work for Disney.
DDad Papa ( but we call him Grumpy) He will tell you that he hates going to Disney, but he get just as excited as we do when we are there. Especially when he has his grandkids with him. He is the one who lets the kids have and do what they want when we are there.
DD1 8 almost 9 we will call her Pirate girl: Has recently told me that she is no longer into the Princess thing. Her Word" I am more of a Pirate right now in my life" But when it came time to order her cake wanted Belle on it. Has just as deep a love for Disney as me. And is already planning her Disney Wedding
DD2 6 we will call her Ariel: Is my Princess lover and tells me all the time that she will not out grow it. She also loves Disney just as much as me
DS 2 we will call him Buzz: He was born with a love of Disney. Even more so than my girls I think. Two of his first words were Buzz and "foofy" (Goofy) Will meet Buzz for the first time on this trip.


Here is a picture of our cast

This was my family from last Feb. There are a few extra people in this picture who are not in our cast this time.
My Aunt with the Curly Red Hair.She will not be joining Us and my Grandfather who will be there for a couple of days with his new wife.

When:
Sept 12-18th


Where:
Pirate Room at the CBR (Where else would pirates stay?)


We are on the dinning plan but not free. we have the 40% off deal for passholders and since that was cheaper for us we just kept it that way. But we are still doing the dinning plan. 1) because it is cheaper in the long run and 2) because now we know almost all of the trip and food are paid for before we leave.

I just have one question :
IS IT SEPTEMEBER YET

Mnsshp

Well i will just continue on since I have a bit of time.
We knew that we wanted to do MNSSHP this year, so for Halloween this past year we either got or made costumes so that we could all match.
Here is what we will be:
Me:Tigerlily
Goofy: Captain Hook
Nana: Nana the dog
Papa: The Croc
Pirate Girl: Wendy
Ariel: Tink
Buzz: Peter Pan

Here is a picture from last Halloween.
My DH had to work so my Grandfather filled in for him, and my DDad couldn't be there so we had no Croc but he will be at MNSSHP.

We all had a blast even though people thought DS was robin hood for some reason.

A few items ready to go.

Well since I was going through a few things today I figured I would show you all a couple of the things the nice people DISigner board have made for me.

This is our countdown when we get a little closer.


This is the sign I am going to surprise my parents with and make it into a magnet for the door. I am also making an extra one for their window just incase something happens to the first.


I am also making one for Dh and I but haven't gotten that far yet. I am more concerned with making my parents stuff. They didn't want a huge party they wanted to go to Disney so that is what they are getting. Now you can see where I got my infatuation for Disney from. They feed my addiction for planning Disney vacations every year. And I Happily do as my parents ask

Signing on for more! This will be our 14th trip to Walt Disney World and we couldn't think of a better place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We are booked at Pop but sure are going to miss our favorite resort....the CBR.

It is great to have my first reader. I hope to keep it interesting

We have never stayed at the POP that is where we want to stay next time. This is our first time at CBR so we are really excited. We normally stay at either the Movies or POR. So this will be a nice change.

We agree what better place to celebrate than our favorite magical place. When we talked about the fact that both DH and I and My Parents were celebrating big Anniversaries ( theirs bigger than ours ) The first thing that popped into our heads was Disney. And we wanted to do something different and a little more than we normally would.

Congrats on you 25 yrs also!!! That is awesome.

A slight interruption

I found out today that my Pirate Girl got one of the solo parts in her 3rd grade play. She has a little three line rap that she wants to do.
She is so Excited and proud.
Just wanted to share our excitement.

Great to have you along.
That is right he has his party this weekend. What fun. Sorry about all the cleaning you have to do though. I completely understand. And then after all the fun it doesn't look I did a thing.
But it is all for the fun right.
Have a great party.

Photo Shoot Question

Ok. We keep going back and forth on where to do the photo shoot. We have got it down to two choices. Wilderness Lodge and Polynesian.
Those that have had their photo shoots there I would love your input.

We are doing a photo shoot with Sophia (Ohiodisneylover) at the Poly! If I had it my way, I'd take pics every where..each place has so much to offer! But I love tropical theming, so I couldn't be more excited about the poly!! I am hoping they catch the MK in the background!
