Smile 21 and taking my 10 mo. old(not many of us out there)

Oh, where to begin!?
So a little bit about the characters going on the trip you will read:

My mom: paying for the trip for our xmas present (and I think she really wants to see my sons first trip to the world-secretly)
ME: I'm 21 and a Disney princess at heart
Conner: my little prince to be, nine months now but will turn 10 months on December 6th, WHILE WE ARE IN THE PARKS!!!
JR: Prince Senior, conners daddy, who would be heart broken to miss his little mans first trip!

SO HERE WE GO!

I have been to Disney too many times to count, it is my playground!
At one point I actually asked my mom if she knew the exact number and her response was somewhat revulting but...

she said "Katie, that is like asking me how many times I peed last week."

HAHA gotta love her

Well, we both get email updates of all the promos Disney runs throughout the year and I have not been in over a year (last trip was Aug 25-30 of 08-really not normal for me!)

But my mom randomly mentions taking myself and my brother to Disney for our xmas present
THANK YOUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!
And of course I would never imagine leaving my son home, come on!
AND how could we leave his daddy home to miss his initiation into the world of disney fanatics(or disney obsessed, whichever sounds better!)


SO between the two of us (my mother and I) we have learned the tricks and trades of going to Disney over the years.
But now everything changes as we are taking my son, who will turn 10 months during our trip and I CANNOT wait

We leave in NINE DAYS!!! (December 4th)

I have read and read about advice for taking smaller children and keep reading the same boring, obvious info (pack enough clothes, diapers, baggies for dirty clothes, food, and the baby centers are a god send apparantly) But where is the real info I ask, where is someone that is somewhat close to my age and taking a baby somewhat close to my sons age?

And my mother sends me a link to a post done by Princess momma-SHE is a godsend and I think my long lost twin.

But SHE is the only person on here (that I have found) who has literally documented every aspect of her trip that I have been dying to know about. And I think it is only fair that I continue on for future young mothers who would like to take their babies to Disney!

With that being said, I plan to document it all, something that I have not done on a Disney trip in YEARS. I had already planned to take him on virtually every ride that does not have a height requirement and yes, I will be getting him EVERY autograph of EVERY character we have the chance to meet.

So, if you would like to follow our adventure into the world of wishes and dreams, join us!
The fun will begin in nine days!

So i'm not too sure how to add to an original thread so I guess for now i will reply to my own:

T Minus SIX DAYS and here are the plans!!

Day 1 Friday Dec 4
Our flight leaves around 3 PM so we will not be going into the parks that day, no point in paying for a full day when we wont even get to orlando until 5:30ish
But, we will be getting our car, unpacking, and getting to know our hotel which is




THE FORT WILDERNESS CABINS!!!!
Out of all my trips to disney, I have never stayed here so i'm excited and nervous, but more EXCITED!

Day 2, Saturday Dec 5
Everyone's first trip to Disney should start with the castle, so of course we will begin the the MK!
We always take naps mid day and will definitely continue the tradition with my 10 month old on the trip
There are no extra magic hours that evening and right now I honestly cant remember where we have decided to go

Day 3, Sunday Dec 6
I'm pretty sure that our AM will be spent in Epcot where we may eat in the Coral Reef!!!
Extra magic hours in MGM, or what is now called DHS (still not used to the change)...but that is where we will spend our evening!



Day 4, Monday Dec 7
AK in the AM for EMH where we will most likely RUN to get fast passes for Expedition Everest or the Safari, not sure which one yet. EMH in MK that night, not sure if we will take advantage or not

Day 5, Tuesday Dec 8
This day we will spend our evening at Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party which I have not attended before but are SOO excited about. The morning we will spend relaxing at FWC and possibly eating brunch at BOMA in AKL. LOVE LOVE LOVE this restaraunt!

Day 6, Wednesday, Dec 9

The most depressing dayWe will be leaving the happiest place on earth

But not before we spend our morning/earyly afternoon in Downtown Disney where we will eat at the Rainforest Cafe

Thats what i've got for now, and I plan to update the restaraunts and such soon! Stay tuned to find out!

I just thught of another question

Diaper bag or sling back pack?

Which is better to carry things in the park for baby, the back pack seems more convenient but the diaper bag is more organized

HELP!

I tried to post pictures a few days ago but didn't have enough posts yet, hopefully I do now!



Thats my conner man, future QB, and little prince for the time being. He is seriously the coolest baby you could ever meet!



Thats me in Hawaii, I'm 21, and a junior in college. Obviously a disney freak, all my friends make fun of me for it but who cares!



My mom apparently doesn't take pictures alone so that is me and conner man with her on a dinner cruise in OC



Thats conner and daddy (JR) in OC this past summer

I still need a picture of my brother and that will complete the characters starring in this vacation (which might I add is only 50 hours and 22 minutes away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!):cool 1:
