Smile There's A Snake In My Boot!!!! PTR April 24th-May 1, 2010 (Trip Report Started!!)

Hey Howdy Hey!!
Yes, we are on a Toy Story "high" right now at our house, so I thought I will begin our PTR with a Toy Story title since I can recite both movies beginning to end any time, any place.

When: April 24-May 1, 2010
Where: Port Orleans-French Quarter
What: 6 Day Park Hoppers
Why: To celebrate my daughter Helen's first trip & my son Gabe's 40" plus height!!!!
Who:
Moi-Cory's Gal-Beth-31 year old SAHM, been to the World 7 times at all life stages starting at age 10! I LOVE Cinderella and Mickey the best!!
DH-Cory-31 year old engineer, been to the World 3 times! Really likes the Pixar movies and characters the best!!
DS-Gabe-age 4 years turning 5 in January-preschooler who has been to the World 1 time right at age 2!! Talks about Disney World constantly and cannot wait to return! LOVES Toy Story, Cars, and Dave from the 2005 planning DVD and hopes to meet him when we go there
DD-Helen-age 19 months turning 2 in April-toddler who loves to eat anything and chase her brother around! First trip to the World and loves everything her big brother does! I am training her to love Cinderella like her momma and she loves to watch MM Clubhouse
The kiddos by the pumpkins: (we are a family of "blinkers", sorry their eyes are closed)

Cory and I this fall:


We also have my parents joining us:
My Mom-Nancy
My Dad-Gary
-both have been to WDW 5 times including our last trip with Gabe!! They are old school Disney lovers, my mom digs Mary Poppins and Peter Pan and my dad is into Sorcerer Mickey, they also love what my kids love too, they are the best parents and grandparents!!

Okay, there's our quick intro, more to come...

Okay, now that I have the basic info started here's some more details...

We are not major Table Service people, sometimes we would like to be but we do a lot of Counter Service, we are not always guaranteed a quiet meal with our little Helen, so we chose two TS meals and already made our ADRs! Last trip we tried CP for breakfast and LOVED IT and 50's PTC and LOVED IT!! Now with the ADR mark at 180 days I had to decide now and in order to do that I already had to roughly plan which parks for each day...tell me what ya think...

Sunday: Epcot (Dinner 5:30pm Raglan Road in DTD)
Monday: Studios
Tuesday: Animal Kingdom (Breakfast 8:15am Donald's Safari Breakfast)
Wednesday: Magic Kingdom
Thursday: Hopping doing our faves
Friday: Hopping doing our faves

My mom and dad are doing Tea on Thursday at the GF at 2pm, they did this last time and LOVED it so they are doing it again!! My mom HIGHLY recommends it!

Any reviews on the Safari Breakfast?? We wanted to try something different even though we loved CP so much! We like the thought of being in a park before opening

Since I have been planning this in my head for almost 3 years I already have a jump on gift bags for the kiddos...pictures to come soon...

Hi Beth! I'm planning my first family trip - I'm so jealous that you're at POFQ - we really wanted to stay there but decided on POP for this trip. But when we go back again I'd love to stay at POFQ! My kids are Cars fanatacis so I know just how you feel having all of those movie lines memorized!

I'll be reading along to hear more of your plans...

Hi Karen and thanks for reading!!! Love your disboards name!! Cars is super popular in our house too and another movie I could probably recite start to finish, we almost have worn out our DVD. We stayed at POP on our last trip and had a great time! The buses were great and we had great service too! The food court was great too!! We are really excited to stay at FQ this time around and I was lucky enough to get 35% off so that's why we were able to do a moderate! It's always fun to try new resorts, my dream resort is the Polynesian, to me it looks like heaven!

Okay, inspired by others, I am prepared to embarrass myself and post a few pics from past Disney trips starting with my first one at age 10! I would post more but we got rid of our scanner so I can't get those old ones on here for now...

February 1989 with my siblings, I am the stylish one in the tie-dyed fish shirt:


I don't have any from our trip in 1992, but this one is from 1996, I was 17 and we took my Grandma who was 70 and she did TOT!!!!


Okay, these even make me laugh some, I will try and dig up a few more...

Thanks!! I'm sure I was inspired from other DISers myself.

It looks like we have the same parks planned for a couple of days.

Monday - DHS (we'll be there in the morning)
Tuesday - AK (we'll be there in the morning)
Wednesday - MK (we might be there in the pm if we decide against Hoop Dee Doo Revue)
And maybe we'll run into you on Thursday or Friday when you are hopping around at your favorite parks!

What did you end up doing for ADRs?

Yeah! Looks like we overlap quite a bit Amy!! I love to plan but when the hours were released so early this time around and ADR's were changed back to 180 days, I kinda had to plan even earlier!
We will for sure be at AK on Tuesday, we have an 8:15am ADR for Donald's Safari Breakfast, which we are all looking forward to! Sunday evening for dinner we will be eating at Raglan Road at 5:30pm. So we were lucky and got the times that we wanted!! I would REALLY love to try and sneak in a dinner at O'hana but my Dad is on a real low sodium & protein restrictive diet and I would hate for him to watch us eat all those meat skewers in front of him!
I am pretty happy with our tentative plans for now, part of me is a bit nervous that hours may change but I think we'll be okay!

Me and Hercules It was a chilly park day but sunny!!


In the teacups...


With M-I-C-K-E-Y...I am on the left, not sure about why I was wearing shortalls??? Was that even in fashion??

It was a fun trip, I was 21, we hit Pleasure Island and had a blast!

Hi, I'm jumping in! But I have to ask, what's the story behind your title "There's a Snake in my Boot"? Just curious.
