Cast of Characters

Lets begin with a whos who on this TR:



Photo was taken the first day, on our way out of MK. You can see we were tired and sweaty!

Me, otherwise known as Stephanie, 29 approaching 30: I am a stay-at-home mom but I am also a graduate student working on my masters and starting the process of applying for my PhD. Between my daughter, school and home things, I am pretty busy but when I have downtime I like to read, scrapbook, photography and to sew.

DH, 29: He is a Software Engineer and is somewhat of a workaholic. He loves Legos, acting/comedy, college football and anything computers. He is toying with returning to school as well to work on his Masters but we think it might be a bit crazy trying to cram that into our already busy schedule. He will someday though but he needs to decide which degree will help him the most in the long run.

DD, otherwise known as Lilian or Lily, turned 4 during our trip: She just began preschool when we got home and loves it. Besides school, she loves to dance, draw/paint, play outside, swim and sing. She loves playing with her princess/Tinker Bell/Minnie polly pockets, My Little Ponies and Barbies.

You will also read about the five grandparents, two uncles and one aunt who traveled with us. To preserve their privacy, I will not give their names but refer to them as follows:

*DMIL and DFIL: DHs parents and this was their first trip to Disney
*Dad: my Dad and this was his second trip
*DGM and DGP: DBFs parents, my honorary parents as they treat me as a daughter and Lilian as their grandchild. DGM is the Disney Master who planned mine and DHs first trip.
*DBIL: DHs younger brother and this was his first trip to Disney.
*DBF and DBFH: My Best Friend and her Husband

It was a large group--four first timers, three second timers, one third timer and too many trips to count for three of them. Why they never bought into DVC is beyond me, as it would have definitely paid off for them!!

Up Next: The Journey Down to Disney

Hoping to take a trip this year, but also contemplating buying DVC, which would involve skipping this year and using that money for the downpayment. We'll see where the year takes us.

Hi Steph! I made it over. Can't wait to read about your trip. I already know our big family trip in November is going to be a complete disaster. That's why you don't see me talking about it . Not looking forward to it at all at this point.

Thanks Wendy! We were pretty sticky and gross by that point, with only being in the park for about 4 and half hours. The spires are gorgeous! They seemed to change color depending on which direction I took a picture from and what time of day it was. This was just before dusk--some of the best light to take pictures in with no flash.
