Delicious Bites, Halloween Frights & Character Delights. NEW PTR HAS BEGUN!

Hi! I'm LL and I'm going back to Disney!!

This trip is a very unexpected trip, I honestly didn't think I would be going back so soon but it has happened! WOOT!

If you'd like to read about my last two trips, the links are in my signature.

The Cast:
LL, me of course. In real life people refer to me as Leslie but here on the DIS most call me LL. Take your pick. I'm 26, turning 27 before the trip. I am married to the most wonderful man, Marc. (Today is actually our 1 year Wedding Anniversary!) This will be my SEVENTH trip to Walt Disney World. This will be my third time staying on Disney property.


Mary Poppins and I in September 2008.


Marc & I in September 2008.


Me in May 2009.

And....

That's it! At least, I am the only person from my household going to Disney in September. My husband has yet again agreed to let me travel to Disney without him, even though he loves it. Just not as much as I do. If you read my last PTR you'll remember that when I went in May with my DIS Buddy, Jen for half of the trip and then my Mom for the other half, he was promised a flat screen tv....well now he will be purchasing a Wii in the near future as well. It's well worth it because I get to go to Disney again.

How this trip came to be....
Even before my May trip, I had been throwing around the idea of traveling to Disney for my Birthday on September 3rd to take advantage of the free admission of course. My May trip was a wonderful trip but it rained a lot of the time and I had a really hard time with blisters on my feet and felt like I wanted a redo. Just a short trip, 3 or 4 nights so I could get my Disney on again under hopefully better circumstances. For some reason Marc was not happy with me going solo on my Birthday. I'm still not really sure why, but maybe he just wants to be with me on my birthday. Well I was pretty bummed that I wouldn't be going to Disney in the fall, I really wanted to go to MNSSHP again and I just wanted a redo. My wonderful DIS friends, Jen (jenjolt), Paula (ILuvCrush) and Christine (2xcited2sleep) were all planning to be in Disney at the roughly the same time at the end of September. They have been trying to get me to commit to that time frame so we could all gather in Disney. Of course it doesn't take much enabling to get me to agree to a Disney trip! I ran the numbers, consulted with Marc and he agreed! Yahooooo! I really didn't think he would but he did. My vacation time was approved and I am booked and ready to go!

My dates as of right now are September 27 - October 1, staying at Old Key West resort. (I'm renting points for the stay) I'm really truly super excited, even though it's my 7th trip to WDW, I feel like there will still be a lot of firsts and new things for me to explore and enjoy as well as the old favorites.

I hope you will all join me on the PreTrip Planning Adventure.

I can't believe I am going again either! I'm very lucky! I suspect that I will never travel this much in one year again.
