Family, Friends, & Celebrities- A MAGICAL Birthday TR!!! *UPDATE*8/27! Final thoughts

Here we go.. the long awaited TR has begun!!!

Well it hasn't been too long- we just got home on Tuesday 3/16.

This TR is about family, friends, and even some celebrities! The dates of our trip were March 3rd to March 16th. This was the longest vacation we have ever took as a family.

We stayed with family (3/3-3/6), a rental house (3/6-3/14), and CBR pirate room (3/14-3-16)

Before we begin I need to introduce us.

First there is our DD Juliana. She turned 4 while we were in Disney. She is a intelligent, inquisitive, caring kid. She loves anything Disney and loves the princesses. Her favorite princess is Cinderella.



There is my DW Melody. Melody always wanted me to go to Disney with her before we had kids. I always refused going and I think it was the best decision ever. When we went on our first trip in March of 2008, I enjoyed watching Juliana's eyes light up when she saw the castle for the first time or when she rode on It's A Small World. (stolen from my last TR )



Then there is me. I'm Tim. The DIS addict of the family. I do most of the research for our trips and look to Melody for the thumbs up or down. Some may also say that I am indecisive when I need to order a cake for a certain someone's birthday.



Also joining us for part of our trip our or friends Dave, Branda, Victoria, & Alex. This was their 1st trip to Disney. Could we make them Disney lovers like us, or will they vow never to return?



This is the story of our trip......

To Be Continued.....

Question

I'm here! One question tho, isn't your PTR a 2 for 1? Have you taken both of the trips that it was for?? Don't you still have Julianna's wish trip to plan for?

Thumbs up

Well duh! I just went and looked at the beginning of the PTR and saw that you have already taken both of those trips. I guess it's just been so long since I started reading that one. LOL!
