What's the Sitch? The Great Disney D-Tour! (12/19 Lego Tribute)

Hello everyone!
I'm back.
I just finished our November 2008 Trip Report and we're currently preparing to head back to the World in November 2009.
But before that, I wanted to add our Spring Break 2009 Trip Report!

For those of you just joining us, meet the Capells:

There's me - the anal planner armed with a multi-colored Excel spreadsheet telling us where we'll be every minute of the trip.
Next up is Mom who is charge of the outfit coordination.
DS7 is just like his Dad and really into Pooh Bear, Buzz Lightyear, and Peter Pan.
DD4 just is all about the princesses - Ariel is her favorite.
And little X (DS2) is along for the ride soaking up everything he can and trying to keep up with the older kids.

We just finished a 9-day trip in November for DD's 4th Birthday.
And before that, we went in 2006 for DS' 4th Birthday.
So precedent dictates that we'll return in 2011 for X's 4th Birthday.

However, I had a conference scheduled for May in Orlando.
And we thought about making that into another Disney trip.
But we figured that it was too soon to pull the kids out of school again.
And they were already starting to feel a bit of Disney overload.

Then Disney announced some new attractions like the Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure.
And it got tempting.
And the kids starting looking forward to 2011.

Spring Break neared and we decided it was time to visit the great-grandparents in West Palm Beach.
To save money we decided to drive.
And then it happened.

We knew it would be a very long week and we'd need to relax afterwards.
So Mom suggested a side trip off Route 95 on the way home.
Yup - a quick jaunt to Walt Disney World on the way home.
How could I refuse?
So we quickly made plans to arrive the afternoon of Friday, April 10th.
We'd spend all day Saturday at EPCOT and then head home after breakfast on Sunday, April 11th.
Kids would go back to school on Monday and I'd head back to work.

It'd be a nice vacation after a long week.
We'd get to experience some new restaurants, the Flower & Garden Festival,
and the Kim Possible attraction.
The plan was in motion but the kids weren't told.
This time it was going to be a surprise!
So, sit back, relax, and get ready for another insanely detailed adventure with the Capells!
This time there's no staples or emergency rooms, but lots of magic and fun.
We hope you'll stay for the ride!

Wow - I'm glad to see so many people on board already!
I hope to get the first couple of segments posted this weekend.
And don't worry, while it was a short trip, we have TONS of pictures and lots of stories (of course)!
