Our Super Deluxe 10th Anniversary PTR @ WL May 2010 w/ Deluxe Dining & Lots of Photos

Hey and everyone to our PTR !!!!

Before we begin with the details, I have to be totally honest. DW, who shall remain nameless (until later in this post ), is usually our TR narrator. However, there are Facebook farms and aquariums to be tended to , so I have picked up the ball to keep all our friends up to date. After all, I always kept telling her what to post in our previous TR's, and if I did it again this time I'd probably have my avatar replaced with a donkey.

Now, it's time to meet everyone. First and foremost is your humble tourguide.

Me ~ Jason. I just turned 40 years old (hold your laughter) and Disney World is my Fountain of Youth. I didn't visit for the first time until I was, I dunno, 29, 30? I forget at my old age.



Next ~ DW, Amanda, otherwise known as BentleyGirl22. Amanda is 3....oh, I'm glad I caught myself on that one . She's donated money to the Disney cause since childhood. It's fairly easy. I say "Where are we going on vacation this year?" By the time I get past "we", she has Disney's reservation site pulled up, looking at resort deals.



Our DS ~ James. James is the serious one. At 9 years old, he is the quintessential big brother. With his background as a budding Imagineer, James can't wait to design his own theme park.



And Our DD ~ Alexis. Alexis is 7 years old, and is a drama-queen-in-training. Alexis knows Disney World inside and out. If Amanda and I were struck blind tomorrow, Alexis could get us anywhere we needed to go.




And now, we get to the 'Where' and the 'When'. But in doing so, I have to give you the 'Why'. Amanda and my tenth wedding anniversary is May 27th. After ten years of enjoyment, we have decided to do something extra special. We will be celebrating the whole week, May 23rd through the 29th. We usually stay at Pop Century. But, given the circumstances, I can't 'cheap-out' this time. So, we booked a Woods View room at the Wilderness Lodge. Woo-hoo



Well, that's my intro, and I'm sticking to it. We'll be back as always to give the info on the plans soon.

Thanks for coming along!!

Hey Heather!!!! Yes, there will be tons of pics. One problem is half our pics are on Amanda's MySpace, which I can't access from work.

Tell Hollie that Alexis says 'HEY!'

Hey MeMom. Glad you could join. This will be our first overnight stay at WL. But, as my all-time favorite resort, we have visited too many times to count. When we lived in Orlando, we'd visit WL just to sit by the hidden fireplace on the second floor.

Thanks. Just wait until you hear about how much time we spent planning this trip.

Priorities....

Who the heck has any money left after Christmas?

For some reason, Atlanta seems chock full of money-spending opportunities during the month of January. During consecutive weekends, we've had the Boat Show, the RV Show, World of Wheels Car Show, and Monster Truck racing.

Now, throw in the Princess Diana exhibit, multiple plays for the kids, Jeff Dunham in concert, and Lady Antebellum opening up for Tim McGraw.(OK, I really could care less about Tim, but it's a package deal.)

Last, we have Spring baseball signups, dance or tumble lessons, the beginning of a new kid's bowling season, and NASCAR coming in 6 weeks.

Don't they know how broke we are?

Well, at least we got our Disney trip booked.

I hear you! We have Monster Truck Jam, Disney's Rockin Road Show, the circus and baseball signups in the next few weeks here. I would love to do all but at this time of the year, we have to be selective!
