The Summer of Disney - Two trips in two months! June & July, 2010

Hi everyone! We got home late Friday night from our 1st Disney trip of the summer, and it's time to get this trip report going. We've only got 6 weeks til the next one, and we'll be in NYC visiting family for 1.5 weeks of that. I'm sorry for the less-than-creative trip report title... maybe I'll be inspired when we take trip #2...

The cast of this trip is nearly the same as on our past trips....
there's me, Michelle, and my DH, John... here we are on our March trip...



There's an addition to the cast for this trip, though.... who will be introduced in my next post, after I load up the pictures.

Our dates were June 6-11, and we stayed at the Villas of Wilderness Lodge for the first time.

More coming soon!

When I left off, I mentioned that we had a new addition to our cast of characters for this trip...




INTRODUCING......



























"Smudge"


After many months of trying, DH & I are thrilled to be expecting our first child. "Smudge," nicknamed because that's all s/he looks like in the sonogram picture above, is due in mid-January. I was just over 7 weeks along when this Disney trip started, and it was definitely a very different kind of trip for us.

And now that you know the news, a question for everyone.... how young is too young for the first trip to Disney??? If you notice our tickers below, we have a spring break trip scheduled for next year already... a CLUB LEVEL reservation, at that. "Smudge" will be ~8 weeks old at that time. We've thought about moving the ressie to June, right after we get out of school, when "Smudge" will be about 5 months old, but after the heat a few of the days last week, we're not sure we want to subject an infant to that... oh, the dilemmas that Disney addicts face....

We've been in late July/August before as well, and although TX is just as hot, at home we wouldn't ever have to leave the air conditioning....

I like the way you think! Plus, what better trip to just enjoy the resort than the one where we're booked in club level?!?!

Hey! I just happened to fall upon your trip report, can't wait to read about the summer of disney... I'd say take your baby to Disney when it's cooler out, plus there will be less crowds. Might as well start the addiction early...
