Sensing Pixie Dust I Am! A Star Wars Weekend PTR! New PTR Link pg. 77!

Episode XI: The Return to Disney World

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

Charleston Princess in her home state of Georgia sits plotting her family’s next journey to their favorite place, Walt Disney World, in 2011. Would it be a long anticipated trip during the Christmas season?

Little does she know, the Disney Empire has not-so-secretly begun construction on a new Star Tours even more powerful and innovative than the last one. Coupled with the prospect of Free Dining, a new Star Tours and a Star Wars Weekend trip becomes more and more of a likelihood for Charleston Princess’ small band of travelers…

Charleston Princess (Jackie): A Disney lover for 36 years and a Star Wars lover for 33 years. Mother to Chelsea and Connor, wife to Charles, and a middle school literature teacher. I have never met a place at Disney that I didn’t like.

Charles: Has been lured to the Dark Side of Disney -- as he would term it. Not the biggest fan ever but tries his hardest to go along with my obsession. He was the one who insisted we should take advantage of Free Dining.

Chelsea: Our 13-year-old princess in her own right. Loves clothes, the Sims, reading, movies, and texting. If she chose the family vacation, she would have us going to Paris.

Connor: Our eleven-year-old master Lego builder. His first movie in a theater was Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. Loves Star Wars almost as much as I do and has the Lego sets to prove it.

When Star Tours is completed, this ultimate ride for Star Wars fans will spell certain doom for Charleston Princess’s Christmas planning and will send her family hurtling down the interstate towards another summer trip in 2011...

Not sure how I got in on this so quickly considering how little I'm around these days (no, I haven't finished your summer report yet) but when I saw your title and knew SWW must be on the horizon for you, I had to jump on board!!

Let's just say my boys would be insanely jealous of Connor!

I am joining in on this one! I just finished reading your Trip Report from your last vacation. As I was reading I was wondering if you had plans for one in the future! I read on through your links and soon noticed that you signature had changed! Which meant you added a new link to a PTR!! I am so excited to go along this planning journey with you!
