HELLO ? MICKEY? ARE YOU THERE?It's me again, and again, and again.....TR STARTED 6/3


Hello and to my two trips in one PTR! Why the title? Well, a short while ago, in May 2009, we were at Disneyworld for our family vacation. While there, my husband and I decided we might want to return in December for our oldest daughter’s birthday (It was to be a BIG one---Sweet Sixteen!). So we upgraded our 7 day park hoppers to Annual Passes! We returned in December for the birthday celebration and had a great time! (Some of you read about that trip in my TR. )


My daughter’s band group is taking a trip to Disneyworld during spring break this year (March) …..SO, I kind-of-hate to let my AP go to waste. DH claimed he couldn’t take off work, so….I invited my sister! More on this trip later.


Since great AP rates are out through the first of June, our family will go back at the end of May for our last trip on our APs. I will also be telling you about this trip.


What to do? Should I write two separate pre-trip reports? Alas, I’m not coordinated enough to do such a thing.

So---TWO trips, ONE pre-trip report!

Congrats on being first, Becky! So glad we'll be counting down together towards our May trips!

I had a really hard time coming up with a trip title. I first thought "Double Dutch Bus---Get on the bus, pay your fare...and go to Disneyworld!" BUT, my husband told me I was telling off on my age if I named it that!

Hi Lisa! I've read part of your pre-trip report, but can't remember if I posted. Forgive me...three kids, a dog, a husband, and a job! Glad you came over to read!

I know....three trips between December and May. Counting the trip we took in May 2009, it will be 4 trips in one year's time. I better enjoy it while it lasts---DH keeps insisting we're going on a strict budget this year. PARTY-POOPER!
